Idea 2: Weekly Vertical Planning

The Daisy Dori can easily be used to plan your week in a vertical layout. If your brain craves that vertical layout, simply add columns or use the existing grid lines on the pages to “create” columns. Rachel used some stamps and the date circles to create her vertical columns in a B6 size dori.

Idea 3:  Weekly Horizontal Planning

While some people need that vertical column for planning, others stick to the traditional horizontal layout for their week. Here, Jennifer uses the page breaks already on the inserts to outline each day. Adding stamps and date dots makes it easy to see which day you are on, similar to the vertical planning picture above!

Idea 4: Daily Planning

Daily planning is my personal favorite way to plan! The dori inserts have enough pages to plan one page per day OR 2 days pay page.
