There is nothing that annoys me more than not being able to flip right to the page I want, right when I want to.

You feel me?

This is why if a planner doesn’t have tabs, it better do something else miraculous for me to even consider picking it up.

Of course, some planners happen to fall into that category, so I developed a little hack that helps me get right to the page I need. Sometimes even when there is a tab for the month, there’s no tab that takes me to the week in the weekly section I’m on, or the right day, or – you get the idea. And don’t even get me started on those planners that use ribbons to find your place.

I hate the ribbons.

So here’s what I do:

Whenever I’m on a new page that takes me to the current week or day (depending on the planner), I cut the corner of the pages on the left bottom of the open planner. 

the left open side corners cut

Now, when I close my planner, all I have to do is put my thumb on the right corner and flip the book open – VOILA! On the right page, right away! 

Opening on the right page!

Some planners even come with this system perforated nicely for you, which is what gave me the idea in the first place.

Hope this little hack helps you some while you plan your little heart away! Happy planning! xo
