I like structured planners that have a place for everything, so when I came across the Kikki K Goals Planner I was keen to try it out!
Before the Pen
What drew me to this planner was the functional layout, horizontal days of the week and all the different categorised sections on the right page of the spread.
After the Pen
The width of the columns was just right – not too small and not too wide!
I used my favorite Frixion erasable stamps instead of checkboxes for each blog post task. D = draft, E = edited etc.
I didn’t end up using the weekly habit tracker as I’ve switched to monthly habit tracking (plus I track more than 3 habits).
I used the Paperchase rainbow gel pens. These pens are very similar to the Ooly gel pens and Kikki K write in rainbow.
Of the 3 brands, the Paperchase are my favorite. They write smoothly and are less prone to ink skipping. There’s no yellow in the pack which I never use anyway since it tends to be too bright to see. I write on an angle so tend to avoid needle tip pens however I found I didn’t need to keep the Paperchase pens as upright when writing, like I have to do with other needle point pens.
For blog planning tasks, I used the Frixion erasable stamps (my favorite stamps for planning).

Would I use this planner again?
I liked this planner. It was functional, no wasted space and just the right page size.
I like structured planners but the right side of the spread was almost a bit too structured. There aren’t many different ways you could tweak the layout of this planner as your needs change from week to week.
If you’re a regular blog reader, you’ll know my favorite planner layout is horizontal days of the week on the left and open-ended space on the right page of the spread. I like this style of planner but I think (surprising to me) that I actually prefer just lined notes space or half checklist / half lined notes on the right page of the spread instead of a lot of structure.
