Current Love - Franklin Covey Boston!

So if you have followed me for any length of time you know that I switch planners faster than I switch purses, but the inserts usually stay almost the same.  I received my new Franklin Covey Compact and thought you might like to see how she is set up.  She is decked out for Christmas and also has a Black, Gold and Teal theme going on.
The rings come standard at 1", but I have swapped them out to 1.25" rings.

Also just as a little side note.  I did an experiment last night to see if I could fit all of the same "planner guts" into my personal Filofax Malden and what do you know?  Everything fit except for the three pens (I had to trim it down to just two).  I also did not use the clear zip pouch as the Malden has a zip pocket that I transferred everything into.  Although everything fit and I was able to close it, turning pages was definitely much tighter in the Malden.  I have zero problems with turning the pages in the Boston now that it has the 1.25" rings.

This is my "Everyday Carry" - the Franklin Covey Compact Boston, Pens & the
Teal pouch has various planner bits (scissors, hole punch, tape runner, etc.)

I added a ring so that I could easily attach my charm.

I do use my planner as my wallet - credit cards are in the front for easy access,
receipts are behind in the secretarial pocket.

Side Tab - I only use three now.  The First tab is Me, Second
Tab is Calendar and Last Tab is my A-Z Catchall.

My zip pouch only has a bit of change - it is mainly my Emergency Essentials
(Ibuprofen, allergy medicine, a couple of safety pins, etc.).

My calendar section includes a month on two pages - I noted with holidays,
birthdays, events and appointments.  These are my current DIY daily pages
which include my daily details.  Once they are filled out they include everything
I need to get through the day.  My bookmark is not shown, but on it I place a
weekly task sheet for those tasks that don't have a specific time, but need to
be done at some point during the week.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my "Show -n- Tell".
