How to Use Multiple Planners?

I really like this planner layout, should I buy it? This planner is on sale, should I buy it? I already have a planner, how will I use additional ones?

Whether you should use 1, a few, or multiple planners really depends on you! How you think, how you stay organized, your preferences, etc. If you like having everything in one place, then you might just want 1 planner. If you have very specific needs that won’t fit in your main planner or you would prefer to categorize things to track them separately, then you may want to use multiple planners.

I reviewed lots of posts on Facebook and blogs on how people use multiple planners to provide as thorough of a list as possible. Of course, someone out there may always come up with another great idea! Share how you use multiple planners in the comments!

Here is the list of how people use multiple planners, categorized by type:
