I’ve been using it like a daily journal. It’s been working really well for me! The only thing I would add if I could would be a little notes section on each page. I like to have a spot of reference when I’m flipping back through my journal for important things I want to remember: like my son lost his tooth on this day, or my daughter started walking on such and such a day.
I am enjoying my daily planner very much as I used the ABP1 last year that was sadly discontinued. I enjoy the at a glance sections at the front of the planner. I do wish the monthly pages could be on 2 pages to have more room to write and place my appointment, Birthday, etc. stickers. I also wish the Journal 21 had the divided sections as the ABP1 had on the daily pages. I really miss that vertical line dividing the hourly schedule from the notes. I do not have a need for the address section in the back as I keep mine on my phone. A notes section would be nice to replace it. That’s what I use it for now. Overall, this is another great daily planner for me with a few tweaks here and there because I fell in love with the ABP1. Thank you again for the planner and the opportunity to give you my thoughts on this wonderful line of planners that I have used for years.
I love the planner — its layout is, on the whole, really nice; I have a little notebook tucked into the endflap so that I can make lists; and I love the perforated tabs that make getting to the current day really easy. With day-per-page, there is also more than enough room for jotting down engagements and making notes, so I’m really happy with it!
