If you have had trouble settling on the perfect planner, why not try droplet’s DIY planner kit.  For $10, you can download the PDF files for letter-size and half-sized templates and either 3-hole punch or bind the pages into a book. The PDF comes with monthly calendar pages, weekly pages, notes pages and a contacts page so that you can build just the sort of planner you need.
I owned the files at one point but in the security debacle of 2010, I lost the files along with everything else I had stored digitally. And just when I was getting itchy to make my own planner!
