Planner Setup: Personal Wide Rings

by Karin

About a year ago I caved and purchased my beloved Personal Wide Gillio binder. Some would say it was love at first sight. I used it non-stop since then, although the setup has changed many times. This is one of the features I like with ring-bound planners: they can adapt to what you need right now to organize your life!

I use this planner in conjunction with my Pocket XL Compagna, as it weighs a hefty 950g / 2.09 lbs which I don’t want to carry with me all the time. Naturally, it only houses the information I don’t need at any time.

Personal Wide is my Goldilocks size: personal was too small and A5 too big. There are also a lot of printable inserts for Personal Wide Rings available on the market which makes customizing my planner to my needs even better!

This binder has developed a beautiful patina over the months, compared to a brand new one it has darkened quite a bit. Also, the leather tone is more reddish than when I bought it last year.
