Whistle and Birch are one of my favorite Aussie planner companies! I’ve tried most of the layouts except the horizontal…

Before the Pen
After the Pen
I wanted to use highlighter so wrote everything in black – very boring!
Until the highlighters come out…
Not quite enough highlighter, so I ended up highlighting everything except the task boxes. So by the end of the week everything should be highlighted.
I really like the Stabilo Boss highlighters – quality without a hefty price tag. I normally hate anything and everything pastel except these highlighters. The chisel tip is my favorite to use because it’s chisel but with a bit fatter tip than most other brands. I can make it thin and it will stay relatively straight. Which wasn’t the case with the other highlighters I used (the DONG-A Twinliner that have a very sharp chisel tip).
You can see the difference in the photo below. The bottom 2 boxes on the left page. Aqua = Stabilo Boss, the blue / purple color is the DONG-A, the lines are much more crooked.
I ended up leaving the notes section blank and added things as the week went.
The black is normally much more prominent on the checklist stamp but I find that after about one year – 18 months of regular use, the ink dries out.

Would I use this spread again?
Yes. It’s simple but it works. There was sufficient room to write and still add a bit of color via the border.
