Today I’m selling a little red briefcase binder, planner from Franklin Covey. As the premier name in planning and organization for business and personal use, the Franklin planners have been known the world over as the highest quality and best design. This planner case has business written all over it, figuratively.
The brick red zippered valise is made of simulated leather inside and out with lovely cream colored contrast stitching. The expanding outer pocket features a magnetic snap closure that holds rather securely and catches every time you close it. On either side of the main compartment are retractable handles for easy carrying. In front of each of those handles are slit pockets for easy storage and access to papers on the go.
There are two almost imperceptible imperfections – not quite scratches – on the back that make the material there slightly lighter. There is also a small scuff on the front bottom right on the main binder. Zipper zips in only one direction.
Interior has a zippered pocket, expandable open pocket and slide pocket behind a placket of card holder pockets on the left side of the binder. On the right side of the binder is an elastic holder for a pen or pencil and a slit pocket to hold a paper pad. A partial FC writing pad is included. The binder mechanism is a 7-ring x 1.25″ that is secure, well-aligned and works either one or two handed. It holds the Franklin Covey Classic 5.5″x8.5″ 7 hole pages. Avery also makes pages, bookmarks and pockets in the same size and hole pattern (not included). Check out their full selection of these Avery planner inserts on Amazon (so far the best priced ones I’ve found).
It is very pretty and I wanted to keep it for myself, but with the pockets and features it didn’t seem like I would be doing it justice keeping it as a desk planner. I know there is someone out there who can put this beauty to good use in a business environment – or even as a purse if the fancy so strikes. Stay organized and on top of things in style.
