July 31: Why FranklinPlanner?

*By clicking “Submit Survey”, you agree to allow FranklinPlanner to use your name and entry for future marketing and publicity purposes.

July 30: Made it your own?

How have you taken the Franklin Planner and made it your own? How have you personalized your planner?

July 30 winning entry: To be announced!

July 29: Changed formats?

As life changes, your preferred planner format can change. Have you switched between a daily and weekly layout? Tell us how you’ve used different formats based on your phase of life.

July 29 winning entry:

“I love Franklin Planners, I have switched to using three different formats. I began with a weekly view when I was in school, that was all I needed. In fact back then I used a weekly spiral bound, mainly because I needed something thin and very portable. I would keep myself on top of my class work by writing when papers were due and important dates for class work. Actually my school mates would contact me about when work was due, since I had everything organized and prioritized in my spiral planner. A little later in life I needed a ring binder with a 2 page daily view. I had three daughters that all played fast pitch, had school activities, birthday parties, games doctors appointments everything for their busy lives went into my planner… Now my life is all about work and I need that view of what is coming up throughout the week without turning the page seven times! I use the pagefinders for appointments that makes my life so easy I have 4, 6 and 8 weeks marked and ready! I would have never made it through life without my Franklin Planner!”  – Dyann C.

July 28: Retired and still planning?

Are you retired and still using a planner? As your schedule and routines have changed, how has your planning changed?

July 28 winning entry:

“Retired these past six years, and wouldn’t *dream* of trying to make it through the day without my Planner! Once the first shock of retirement wore off, I realized that I still needed structure to my day, and that was where my Planner really came in handy. I now have sections of my Master Task List blocked off for the month’s greeting cards, chores that are best done monthly or seasonally (furnace cleaning, anyone??), and the names of bills that have to be paid, along with the date when they were paid…”

– Meg L. 

July 27: Better together?

Do you use a smart phone/tablet AND a planner? How do you use both?
How are they better together?

July 27 winning entry:

“I find that I love my planner for my personal use but I need my online calendar to be able to coordinate with others. When I am going through my day, I love to be able to quickly jot down thoughts, notes, dates, details, etc. in my own style and my own handwriting, rather than trying to fit the information into the electronic categories available on my phone. It is so much faster for me to write and it also allows me to stay more present and focused on the people with which I am working. However, at the end of the day, I can go back and add everything from my planner onto my shared online calendar so that my friends, family, or coworkers, etc. can still have access to a synced, up-to-date calendar in order to better coordinate with one another. I’ve got to have both. One without the other is incomplete.”

-Hollie O.

4 Ways to Use Your Planner This Holiday Season

Your Franklin Planner is the gift that keeps on giving. Here are four ideas to help you save time, energy, and sanity this holiday season:

CLrh_HolidayGiftList_Final1. Track Your Gifts: start by making a list of all the people you need gifts for this season, from family members and friends to your child’s school teacher.  Keep this list in your planner as you shop for gifts, and mark down the gifts you purchase. You never know when inspiration might strike – you might decide the traditional Hawaiian gift of a pineapple is perfect for your neighbor while walking through the produce section, for example.

Download a Holiday Gift List for your planner:

Holiday Gift List – Pocket: JPG PDF

Holiday Gift List – Compact: JPG PDF

Holiday Gift List – Classic:  JPG PDF

Holiday Gift List – Monarch: JPG PDF

2. Plan Your Parties: from guest lists to ingredient lists to decorations to daily reminders, your planner can handle the rigors of planning a party. Mark off RSVPs, plan out your errands, and watch everything fall into place for a stress-free get-together.

3. Prepare for Guests: if you’re having family or friends from out of town staying with you this holiday season, help their trip be memorable in a good way. Jot down reminders to prepare your guest rooms before they arrive. Research fun local activities happening on the dates that your guests will be with you. Then you’ll have options for entertaining, giving your guests a choice between a night on the town and a cozy evening at home with your family.

4. Holiday Card List: Yes, it’s that time again. As you prepare to send out holiday cards this year, brainstorm a list of recipients in your planner. Then you can print out address labels and take your cards to a more comfortable spot than your computer desk. Mark names off as you hand write each card, and your season’s greetings will be that much more personal and meaningful.

Timbuk2 What’s Missing Contest?

Command Messenger by Timbuk2It’s official! We have the most creative readers! Our team had so much fun reading all your responses and it was very hard to only pick two winners. We really appreciate everyone participating in this contest.

Drum roll please… the winners of the “What’s Missing” contest are George Chelius and Jacky Cooney! Congratulations to both of you! Take a look at their responses below:

George Chelius said: A quality lasso to go with the hat and for roping stray squirrels and unicorns. 

Jacky Cooney said: A camping hammock so you can take a break to read up on your RSS feed and have your packed lunch anywhere!


We are very excited about this contest! We’ve teamed up with San Francisco based Timbuk2 Designs and are giving away 2 Timbuk 2 Command Messenger Bags as prizes during the contest hosted on our Facebook page.

Last year Timbuk2 launched a microsite called WhatsInYourBag.com which pays hommage to all the wonderful and weird things people carry in their Timbuk2 bag. The microsite has become so successful (and addicting to scroll through) that we’ve made a contest based on this same concept. Here’s how the contest works. Below is an image of a Timbuk2 Command messenger bag with all of its contents laid out. Taking a look at this photo, we’re asking you to think hard about “what item could be missing” from this bag…and be creative!  The 2 most unique guesses will each win a bag from the photo. 

To enter, go to our Facebook page OR you can send your response to GO.FC@fcorgp.com with the subject line: “Timbuk2 What’s Missing Contest”.

The contest ends Friday, April 5 at 1pm mountain time.  Our 2 clever winners will be announced that afternoon on Facebook and emailed directly.
