Learn to Love Planner Shopping With 5 Guidelines to Choosing Your Ideal Planner

5 Jul

Nothing is better than the thrill of picking out a new planner.  What color, type, and brand should you get?  However, with so many planners to choose from, which one is right?  As exciting as it is, it can also get overwhelming, and you may just pick up the first one you see.  But that may not be the best idea.  If you take the time to pick out a good planner, you will relish using it.

Planners and Datebooks on EuropeanPaper.com

When picking out a planner, you should take several things into account beforehand.  What size do you want?  How about a planner for business or personal use?  What kind of design do you prefer, something classic, or something that reflects your personality?  How much money are you willing to spend?  Do you require special function areas – like a pouch, contacts, To Do list, or a notes section?  Do you want a refillable one?

So many options exist, so let us get started!

Size

I generally start with the feature that is the most important to me – size.  You can get planners that can fit into the back pocket of your jeans, get tossed into a small purse or the size of a book!  How do you plan on using your planner?  Do you keep your life in your planner?  If so, something sturdy and relatively bigger would be easier to write all the details in.  Do you prefer to keep your planner at home?  I keep stamps, maps, stationery, pictures of my family and random musings in the pockets of my planner.  So I wanted something that I could toss into an everyday purse!  And on days when I want to streamline, I take index cards and write out my day so I can keep track of my life.

Design 

Ahhhh, design.  You can find planners with Hello Kitty designs to planners that are a solid black/brown/red.  Design reflects personality.  I personally chose a black planner but I have added my own personal touches to it, by adding pictures, and inspirational quotes on the inside. I can still be professional while maintaining my own personality!

Money

Planners can cost from a simple $1 to leather, refillable planners that retail at $500.  How much money are you willing to spend is entirely dependent on your preferences.  You can find a moderately priced, sturdy planner for around $30.  Make sure it has everything you want and then shop around; there are some amazing planners out there for a steal!

Special Functions

What are the little extras you want?  Most planners come with the standard contacts/addresses area and perhaps a page or two for notes.  Do you want a pocket to stash business cards, notes, stamps, stationery?  Do you want a special projects page?  If those extra features matter to you, make sure you look at planners that have those first.

Refillable

Another option is getting a refillable planner and just update the inside paper sections every year.  Those can be convenient and, if you invest in a good quality planner early on, can last you for years.  You can add pockets for business cards and envelopes for your everyday bric a brac, too.

At the end of the day, the planner that you pick is the one that speaks to you.  As long as it holds everything you need it to hold, you have picked the right one.

5 Tips for Effective Travel Planning With Your Academic Planner

15 Jun

With hectic home lives and crazy work schedules, planning a trip can seem like a daunting task. However, an academic planner can help you do all the legwork well in advance – so all that’s left to do is enjoy the journey! Plus, since an academic planner is built to accommodate summer, it’s the perfect planner to outline summer vacation plans.

Block Out Dates

The first step to using your academic planner to plan your travels is to pick the dates and block them out on your planner. Because you’re able to work far in advance with an 18-month planner, you can plot out all the trips you’re planning and prevent accidentally double booking yourself. Cross out the dates or highlight them in a specific color so that you don’t overlap commitments.

Schedule To-dos

Once you have your trip dates blocked out, use your planner to schedule the entire trip’s to dos. Start with the date of the trip and back up. For example, if you want to start pricing flights four weeks before you travel, flip four weeks before your departure date and write, “Price out flights.” If you want to wait to book the flight until two weeks before (for enough time to check for that last-minute screaming deal), flip two weeks after you put the pricing note and write, “Book flights.” Follow these same steps for each task – booking a hotel, renewing your passport, buying traveler’s insurance, and so on.

Track Your Budget

You know how much you have budgeted for your trip. Jot that amount down on the day you depart. Each time you spend money on the trip – paying for the flight, buying a new bathing suit, or picking up sunscreen – subtract that amount from the total. You can even calculate estimates for your expenses as you plan the trip. For example, back up to the date you decided to start pricing flights. Use that page to write notes on how much the flight will be on various airlines so that when you go to purchase the tickets, you have a budget reference. Bonus: If you don’t spend as much as you anticipated in the planning stages, you’ll have a balance to use for extra souvenirs!

Create Lists

In addition to planning your dates, to dos, and budget, you can use your academic planner to create lists for each aspect of your trip. If you jot the lists on the day you need to do them, you’ll stay organized and won’t forget crucial information. On your planner page for the day before you depart, start a packing list. Even if the trip is eight months away, if you think of something – don’t forget extra camera batteries – write it down.

Get Creative

Use the notes pages in your planner to get creative. Paste images of your destination on the notes pages to motivate and inspire you. During your trip, use the pages to journal or scrapbook about your adventures. And when the trip is through, add your favorite pictures from the trip and archive the planner.

Using your 12 or 18-month planner can help you plan your trip down to the details in advance. You won’t be scrambling around the night before your flight leaves, trying to remember everything you wanted to bring!

Exacting Excellence with Exacompta

22 May

Exacompta Brand Story on EuropeanPaper.com

Exacompta is a French company with roots in the professional world and connections to Clairefontaine, Rhodia, G. Lalo, and more. Founded in 1928 by Charles Nusse, great-grandson of Clairefontaine founder Jean-Baptiste Bichelberger, the company got its start mass manufacturing high quality ledgers for accounting firms in Paris.

Famous Roots & Branches

The brand quickly became a popular choice due to their high quality paper and sturdy bindings (let’s face it – with direct roots from Clairefontaine, Exacompta was always destined to use the best paper). The Exacompta company name was inspired from a combination of the French words comptabilité and exacte, which mean accounting and exact, respectively.

Those two values are represented clear as day in all their fine products, and took hold in their early days. Their original books were bound with durable and smooth paper and became synonymous with excellence. Nusse grew his personal company, Ets Charles Nusse, with Exacompta and in 1950 Clairefontaine was added to the group. Today, Exacompta is still run by the Nusse family, and they are now part of a larger group of several European paper manufacturing companies, including Rhodia and G. Lalo.

Working by the French philosophy “savoir vivre,” meaning knowledge of good life, Exacompta set out with an objective to make even the simplest tools well-designed and a pleasure to use. Through this mindset, Exacompta has carved a unique niche between paper and professional by manufacturing notebooks, datebooks, and filing accessories.

Professional Office Tools & Accessories

Exacompta notebooks and datebooks are perfect for the professional setting. Simple and sleek, most of the notebooks and datebooks are also refillable, making them customizable by nature. Fill your Exacompta with undated calendar sheets, plain pages, graphed pages, or mix and match to create a notebook that fits your needs!

Exacompta datebooks can be filled with two unique types of paper that reiterate Exacompta’s original accounting focus. The first is Registre Azur. This paper has a mint green tint designed for ease on the eyes. The other paper is Ivoire Satine, a fine, lightweight paper with extraordinary strength.

Though notorious for their paper products and journals, Exacompta also makes phenomenal office accessories that aid in organization. Business professionals and students can find the perfect match for their organizational preference choosing between the Exaboard, Exafolio, and Exacard. Exacompta filing accessories are wear- and water-resistant and will protect important documents, plus accessories from the Green Filing Series are made from 80% polypro recycled materials!

With a focus of products that encourage professional development through organization and protection, Exacompta helps business as usual carry on with ease. A refreshing dose of simplicity in today’s complex world.

Quo Vadis: Planners Made Perfect

15 May

Quo Vadis Brand Story on EuropeanPaper.com

In 1952, the commonplace planner was kept in a diary style format, with activities logged on one page for every day. A French doctor by the name of F.G. Beltrami was struggling to manage the activities of both a hospital and a dental school in one of these diary-style planners as the format simply didn’t suit his needs. Frustrated with the lack of planning abilities in a diary, Beltrami attempted combining the ideas of a calendar and journal.

Quo Vadis Datebook Refills on EuropeanPaper.com

After some brainstorming and blueprints he began hand-stamping his own weekly layout on the blank pages of a journal, resembling what is known today as the “Agenda Planning Diary.” Noticing that friends and family were also delighted by this planner, Beltrami decided to leave his profession as a doctor in 1954 in order to start selling planners; thus, Quo Vadis was born!

The phrase “Quo Vadis,” derives from Latin roots, and literally translates to “Where are you going?” With Beltrami’s new planner format, you could see “your week planned at a single glance” and actually answer that question! This insight built the foundation for Quo Vadis and transformed the modern planner, but with nearly every notebook company following this format today, how does Quo Vadis stand out?

One reason is that they use Clairefontaine paper. Produced from a mill in Vosges, France, this paper is a delight to write on due to its smooth surface and eco-friendly features. Also, a large number of Quo Vadis planners are refillable, meaning that when that one journal you absolutely love is full, you don’t have to quit using it! Quo Vadis are truly the planner experts. Features such as micro-perforated tear-off corners allow you to easily find the date, and little details like the time frame for each day make organization amazingly easy.

As an extremely busy man, F.G. Beltrami had a true sense of the importance of time management. An excerpt from an old promotional brochure for Quo Vadis, posted on the official QV blog, expresses his advanced understanding of it:

“Too much to do, and too little time to do it. It seems like that is what work, and modern life in general, is all about. That is why we have to fight back, and regain a sense of control.

As a doctor, I have a pragmatic outlook on people. We are all just simply… people. We all tend to do what is easy rather than what is more difficult.

I believe in taking simple steps to accomplish what is truly important.”

As an organizational companion, Quo Vadis helps you remember all the little things that always add up! With myriad daily, weekly, and monthly formats (not to mention journals, too), Quo Vadis is a staple you’ll always want to have on hand. Whether it’s a lunch meeting this Thursday or your personal goal to be at the top of the company by the end of the year, with Quo Vadis planners, you know where you’re going!
