My Memory Keeper

Ok, so I have noticed one drawback with the Disc binding system:

The size of disc determines how many pages you can hold in your journal/planner.





This is my current planner/journal. I started with 2 pages of yearly calendar, 24 pages of monthly calendars and 48 pages of gratitude pages for the year. Add to that 5 pocket dividers that I really wanted to keep from month to month. I could see that as I filled in each month this size of disc would not be able to hold more than a couple of months.
I decided that at the end of each month, I would make sure I had completed all of my entries, then move that month to a Memory Keeper. This book has the larger blue discs.



This is my Memory Keeper for 2017. It currently holds Dec 2016 (when I started the disc system) through May 2017.
I think I can fit one more month, then I will need to make another Memory Keeper for the second half of the year.


This is a journal page from May.


This is a journal page from March.
I enjoy flipping back through the year.

 Moving my past months' planner pages to my Memory Keeper allows me the space I need to keep my goals, trackers, and lists from month to month providing me continuity; things like my household chores, meal planner, shopping lists, and exercise tracker.

What is your favorite planner system?

Happy Journaling,
