I am so excited to have found a binder planner that suits my needs. The minimalistic layout provides a lot of flexibility. I am currently working on creating my monthly budget layout for the blank pages provided at the end of each month. I ordered extra binder tabs as well as additional paper so that I can continue to customize as needed.
I rated this as four stars because the top binder ring doesn't seem to close all the way. There's the smallest gap, so I can't add much in the way of additional pages without it opening up even more. I took the pages out and was able to adjust slightly and the ring closed but as soon as the pages went back in, the gap appeared again. It's a minor issue that I can work around, but I know we planner nerds are particular. One other thing to consider for 2024 might be providing monthly tabs like the Year Task Planner.
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy you are loving this new format!
I'm sorry to hear there seems to be an issue with the top ring of your binder - quality control is so important to us, so we would be happy to replace the binder for you if your'e still seeing this issue.
As for the laminated tabs suggestion, I'll surely pass that along to our team. Thanks again and I hope your Binder Planner serves you well in the year to come.
The Appointed Team
I am so happy to have a planner that I can refill each year. It is sturdy and just the right size. The one thing that would make it a 5-star would be if there were tabs for each month to make it easier to turn to a specific month when needed. My previous Appointed calendars had this and I miss that convenience.
