Picking Your Limelife Layout
Posted on July 30 2015
I have always written down appointments and things to do for as long as I can remember. Kenny tells me to just use my phone, but I swear it deletes stuff on its own. I also think that I remember things better when I physically write them down. The only downfall is I would have sticky notes and note pads everywhere and I would lose track of them. I knew I needed one place to keep everything organized. I decided I wanted to get a Limelife Planner, only problem was trying to decide which layout would work best for me. Thankfully they offer free weekly page samples so you can try before your buy. They are located in the FAQ section on the website.
Once you download the samples and open them in a PDF reader, like Adobe, you will hit print. Make sure you choose "Actual size" in the print dialogue box before printing.
Once you have them printed out you are set to cut them them to the correct size. If you do not have a paper cutter you can draw a line connecting the crop marks.
When they are all cut they will measure 7x9 inches and you are ready to try out all the different layouts.
As soon as I started with Layout B I knew it wasn’t the one for me. I like having a separate to do area and a place to write the blog post I have due. This layout would be really good for someone that owns their own salon, or has appointments throughout the day.
I liked the thought of this layout but I just write way too big for Layout E. Again there isn’t a separate section for to do lists.
I really loved Layout D and how it was all on one page and I liked the three separate boxes. I could see having one for appointments, one for blog/to do and one for dinner/evening plans. Again though, I think I write too big and I miss having the separate to do list.
I love the new Layout K. It is all on one page and the boxes are big enough for me to write in and it does have a separate to do section.
Layout F is really neat because it has huge boxes to write in and a long to do list area, but I think I prefer having a horizontal layout.
Layout C is a big contender for me. I love that each place has it’s own section. This would work really well with someone in school. They could have a place for each class. It does have a separate note section and to do section.
My other big contender is Layout A. I love the to section and the three separate boxes. Again, I would use one for appointments, one for blog posts, and one for dinner/evening plans. I think this one has more room to get crafty with stickers and my big writing.
Which layout is your favorite? Will you be printing out your own samples to try before you buy?
