There is a growing movement towards the A6/ Senior size in the planner community. A6 size has, for quite a while, intrigued me. This is because I think it would be easier to print out and make your own inserts in this size. Most importantly, you’re not wasting paper (A6 is half of A5, which is half of A4) when cutting and punching inserts to fit in your binder. The extra paper that ends up being tossed away when I’m making personal sized inserts really bothers me.
So why the hesitation? Well, if you’ve taken a look around my blog and seen my collection, you will know that I have amassed a large amount of personal sized planners. Some of which I am still to use, and I still have more that I would love to acquire. I really love my planners and want to use them. What would happen if I try the A6 and it would work?! What would I do with all these other planners in a different size? This really makes me anxious!
Well now there is a new facebook group called Using A6 Planners: Info & Resources which I have joined in the hopes that I can learn more about using an A6 size. So far, there are some who still use both A6 and personal and interchange when the mood strikes. Most have just made the permanent switch to A6 and do not regret it. Hopefully as I get to learn more, it will make my decision easier. Perhaps I can find a way to have both sizes in my life that would work for me.
Have you used an A6 or Senior sized planner? Have you made the permanent switch, or do you use A6/Senior with another size planner? Would love to hear some feedback from you all.
‘Till next time,
I am currently using a Mulberry Agenda which takes A6 size paper. However, I still have one personal size Filofax which I prefer to the Mulberry, so I haven’t made a final decision as to whether I will move completely over to the size. I am coming to the conclusion though that it doesn’t matter what size I use, as long as I do actually use it 🙂
I get what you mean Anita :). I think I will be getting an a6 planner soon. Then I will try to see how I will use both sizes.
