Unsolicited Advice 2020 Planner
SOLD OUT: Thank you so much for your support and interest of this project. Please join my email newsletter for ongoing updates and first look at the 2021 edition when it becomes available late Summer 2020.
Figure out what you’re doing (probably) with this offbeat, optimistic planner.
Somewhat imperfect and very human, the Unsolicited Advice planner is a tool for organization now, and reflection later as you fill it with plans, thoughts, goals, and feelings. We’re doing this together!
- 5.75 x 7.75 inch trim size
- 224 B&W interior pages on 100gsm paper
- 4 full-color sticker pages (w/ DIY month tabs!!!)
- Coil bound, rounded corners, plastic cover, elastic closure
- Dated weekly spreads, monthly grids, yearly overview
- Activities, reminders, goals and tasks and more!
This Jan – Dec 2020 dated weekly planner has all the normal stuff, and then a lot of... less normal stuff like tiny nagging (''encouragement'') and silly holidays and introspective (and occasionally goofy) activities. Monthly check-ins and goal setting, weekly personal space, and lots of calendar formats give you all the structure you need to do your thing.
The rest up to you to fill with your own plans, thoughts, goals, and feelings. Unsolicited Advice is a tool for organization now, and reflection and gratitude later. Even if you're miss a couple days you can come back and write short recaps of what did happen, making this both a planner and a journal, and eventually a time capsule. Wow paper sure is amazing!
Returning to coil-binding for 2020, this ninth edition of my popular planner levels it all up. A new sturdy cover, elastic band closure/bookmark, bigger coils, better paper, and a new trim size (approximately 5.75" x 7.75"). This year, bonus sheets of stickers are bound right in, so they're always handy for birthdays, good days, and the occasional "today is cancelled sorry."
The design incorporates handwriting for a personal touch that softens blunt reminders ("you do need to rest") but doesn't get in your way with too much nonsense. Activity pages are printed front/back so you can always tear them out if they get in your way. Life is hard sometimes but it's better when we do it together. I'll see you there!
