The one that started it all…

I had always been intrigued by ringed planners and had wanted to try them out. At that time, I had only seen the Success (Dutch) brand and since the ones I saw and liked were leather and therefore expensive, I didn’t dare buy one. The Filofax brand was not on my radar. And then one summer I decided to search for a cheap one to try out. That particular school year I had been so disorganized, it was rediculous! I thought perhaps having a nice planner might help me. So I bought a pocket (junior) sized planner. I’m not even sure if is a Success brand, but it did the job for a while, until it started to fall apart on me :p. 

          As you can see, it’s not made from a good material, cardboard almost! But it did the job and made me realize that I do like the ringed system. Even if at that time I didn’t really use it properly.  So I’m letting go of some things, the KonMari way 😉 and this is post is my way of saying goodbye and thank you to my first ever ringed planner. 🙂



  1. It’s in horrible shape, but I wish more planners had some sort of picture on the cover.


  2. It looks so awesome! 😀 Very unique!
