Which weekly layout is right for you?

We love how @katiesteiner shares the benefits of each layout …

VERTICAL: I love this layout for someone who juggles a lot! Some use the boxes for morning/afternoon/evening, while others use them for different categories of their life: work/kids/school/content/to-dos.
HOURLY: This layout is ideal for people who need to manage their time! You can block off your schedule and add to-dos into your white space.
HORIZONTAL: I love this layout for people whose schedules are more fluid. One of the things I love most about this layout is that I have plenty of space for hand-lettering, and it’s versatile enough that I can use the boxes however I need. There is also a blank box on the bottom-right page to organize your week.
Each layout has its own pros/cons, and it really is about what works best for your life right now. Maybe you used one layout in the past, but your life has changed and it’s no longer working for you. Don’t be afraid to try something new! - Katie Steiner
