Why Coil Bind Makes the BEST Binder
Also, because I believe your planner is best when homemade, you need to know why coil bind works best.
One of the best reasons to use coil is that your planner lays flat. When writing you want the planner to be as flat as possible.
I see some pictures with notebooks and while I love notebooks, they don’t even make it in my top choices.
Why? There are three huge reasons I don’t like or use notebooks.
- First, the O rings get in the way of writing.
- Second, the planner cannot bend back. That is important if you print only a semester planner and want to use part of the paper for a pad to write on.
- Third is that a notebook binder encourages you to keep organizing.
Organizing is about accepting a system and making it work. It’s not about constant change through the year and never using your planner. Adding or deleting pages adds to the stress. Using what you’ve created and making it work albeit not perfect is how organized people roll.
In addition, coil uses very little space on the margin for the coil to go through. Did I mention how many different colors coils come in?
Some colors are beautiful, but most office supplies business will have basic white or transparent which are always my top choices.
Whether you buy a coil binding machine or take your planner to an office supply place, you won’t ever regret using coil.
