Time management Monday: How Jason uses his Space 24 planner with his bullet journal and Google calendar

Post Comment

Jason was one of the lucky winners of our 30 Day Apps to Paper Planner Challenge. He chose a Space 24 week + notes planner to try for his 30 days. Here is how he is using his Space 24 planner along with his bullet journal and Google calendar:

I found that using the planner alone didn’t really work for me – having my to-do list items and scheduled items in the planner box led to things getting too crowded and things getting overlooked.
But where I found the planner is really helpful is when I use it in conjunction with a bullet journal.  All my future planning takes place in the planner, saving me the need to draw monthly and yearly spreads in my bujo.  At the beginning of the day I copy the day’s events to my bujo and work from that over the course of the day, until at the end of the day I copy any events scheduled while away from my desk from the bujo into the planner.  (I’m still using Google calendar as well – my wife and I have two special needs children and nothing we have found beats the convenience of a shared online calendar for keeping our household schedule intact.)
Thanks again for the opportunity to try out this planner – as things stand right now, I can easily see myself ordering next year’s edition.

Here’s a picture from my planner with a couple of items redacted. A couple of things I want to point out:
1. The circled 14 after “Trash/recycling to curb” means that item repeats in 14 days.
2. The different ink colors are meaningless – just whatever pen I have in my hand at the moment. I’d love to be one of those people who color codes different things, but inevitably I never have the pen I need with me.

Thank you so much Jason! I’m so glad you are enjoying using your Space 24 planner.
