Being one of our most popular planner inlays, the Best of Both layout deserves a proper guide: where you can find these layout options, what the different variations look like, as well as some inspiration for how you can use them together with the calendar part. Are you ready to see some really lovely ideas? Lets go!
So the basic idea with the Best of Both spread is that youll be able to combine your week view on the left with a blank page on the right. Thats how it all started - you people asked for it, so we made sure we could offer it to you!
Well, to be perfectly honest, most of you actually asked for a lined right hand side page - so we made sure you could choose that too!
As always when changing and developing the Personal Planner, the most important thing for us is to listen to our wonderful planner community to see what they (read: you!) find useful and what they think would make the planner even better.

So then this right-hand-side business got a little out of control dot grid was added, as well as the option of stripes in all kinds of shades and colors, for those who like that!
The dot grid alternative is the best choice if youre into bullet journaling, lettering or general doodling. The faint gray dots will help you with scale and perspective, without being too intrusive. Our friends, bujo sisters Nicki and Felicia Montan, have used their dotted right side page for so many great ideas! Check these gorgeous pics.
Here, Nicki and Felicia have used the page for study notes.
Theyve also used it for drawing trackers. Check out that sleep tracker! *SWOON* Habit trackers are a great way to get a clear overview of, well, habits. If you track how many hours you sleep at night as well as your mood, you will probably also be able to see how much your sleeping habits affect your moods. You could potentially find all kinds of weird and wonderful correlations between habits that you didnt even know you had before you started tracking them!
