Dividers

Dividers are an easy way to keep track of the contents of your planner and section them out from each other, making things easier to find, and using your planner a lot easier.

Most new planners come with a set of inserts, Filofax and Paperchase both include the current years diary, notepaper and an a-z phone section among others along with a set of dividers, sometimes they are labelled for each section and other times they are blank.  The blank ones give you better placement options for your sections, what sections you use and how you want them to be labelled.

The other thing, aside from the practical aspect, that I like about dividers is that switching them about and using either pre-made or making your own style dividers is one of the easiest ways to personalize and really make your planner your own.  There are lots of people over on etsy that make dividers for all sorts of planners, from Filofax to Kiki K, to Happy Planner, the easiest way to find what you are looking for is to be specific in your search terms, for example, if I was browsing etsy for dividers for my planner I would search “filofax personal sized dividers” which will  bring up so many search results, the trick now is to narrow down your search field by, for example adding “glitter” or “rainbow” or “cartoon” between the words “sized” and “dividers”.  Knowing the broad terms for the style you are looking for really helps.

Alternatively, you could make your own, which I will be showing you in my Planner Makes series on Monday 20th February!

What dividers do you use and what categories do they mark in your planner?
