I’ve never been able to stick to using just 1 planner for an entire year… Which means I have a lot of expired planners in my bookcase. Not to worry, a few quick changes and I can use those planners for any week of any year!
Before the Pen
This is the Eccolo planner which is dated for 2017 – 2018 academic year … It’s now 2019.

After the Pen
A quick strip of washi tape (which coincidentally closely matched the colors of the pens I used!) to cover up the year, add some date dot stickers and now the planner can be used for 2019:
I used the Prima planner date dot stickers. They’re a bit plain so I grabbed a highlighter and colored them in to make pink date dot stickers instead.
I never look at the monthly dates at a glance on a weekly spread anyway so didn’t bother to cover them up.
I may not be a fan of Kikki K’s write in rainbow needle tip pens but I love the felt tip pens.

This planner has really good paper – there was no ghosting or bleed through!

Would I use this planner again?
I do like this layout and the page size meant things didn’t end up being crammed. I’d definitely use this planner again.
