Q&A | What To Do With Your Old Planner

janky-painted-butterfly asked a great question at our Fox and Star Tumblr recently:

“Hi, I was wondering if you have any tips on what to do with your planner once you’ve used it up. Should I keep it, toss it, burn it, staple the corner?”

Hello there!

That’s a very good question.

Having a second planner to keep the other planner in is a great idea, kind of like a russian doll or ‘plannerception’.

Of course you could file it away, particularly if you have used your planners for notes when studying. If you have a phone handy you could store them digitally. But if you feel that you don’t need to keep it, then there are a multitude of different things you could do.

Maybe you could leave them in bars, pubs and coffee shops on the off chance that your notes would be found and you gain some kind of literary notoriety. Or perhaps some distant admirer would build a shrine from them a la Helga Pataki in Hey Arnold.

On the other hand, nothing screams cool like using your old notes and memos as bunting at parties. Why not add that extra flare to your social gatherings by laying out party decorations comprised of confidential financial information, mathematical theorems and the odd reminder to buy milk.

Either way, let us know what you do with it.

if you do decide to dispose of your planner. Remember to recycle!
