The lovely owner of the Spaces planner heard about BLP from two listeners and sent me a 2021 copy to review! Listener Angie wrote in:
“I love the unique structure of the weekly, list-based layouts. This is perfect for someone who likes to plan mostly via lists as opposed to being calendar-driven. But I also love that it still gives you a monthly calendar as well as a small weekly calendar for those things in your week that ARE calendar-based. There is so much flexibility with this layout style.”
If you are still looking for your 2021 planner and are trying to find something that’s more list based (because perhaps your calendar is electronic only!), then Spaces may be for you!
Lots of details in the episode, but I wanted to include some photos:
Very sturdy cover! Size is 8 3/4″ x 9 3/4″, coil 3/4″ thick. This is a fairly large planner and probably would be most functional living on a desk. But it would be portable if need be.
The meat of the planner! Weekly Spaces layout. Quite unique! This is a mockup of how I would probably use it, but the possibilities are endless.
Tabs – printed + laminated. They look nice and are functional.
Monthly calendar with lots of space thanks to the wide dimensions of the planner. Month on two page spread, not one.
Notes pages galore! Some with this cute card-like layout.
Some with lines:
Gel pens worked nicely in this planner, as did pigment ink pens. You could certainly go thicker than I did. The bright white paper is fairly thick but has the tiniest bit of feathering with the brush pens. No bleed through and almost no ghosting though! The tooth is moderate and I did not have smudging concerns.
Yearly overview (2021 + 2022 contained!)
The Spaces planner retails for $55 and can be found here!
Any other die hard Spaces users out there?
