Default 1 binder or 2?

If you're using one of the "official" Project Life binders (or have one the same width...whatever that width may be), how many binders do you use per year? The one I bought is on Becky's list of things that are running out and won't be replaced, so if there's a decent chance of me needing 2 I want to get the 2nd now so they match. I'll probably do a 2-page spread each week with minimal inserts, and I'm expecting my pages to be very flat even though I'll be using more paper supplies than digital ones. Thanks!

I fit 6 months in a binder, but I do a lot of inserts. I'm planning on 3 for this year.

I think you need two. I did PL for the first half of the year, all digital, so the pages were flat, but the binder was almost full.

I used two, and most of mine were digital too.

I just used one binder for 2012. I didn't do many inserts, though, and about 2 months worth of pages were two weeks per spread. I'm hoping to fit 2013 into one binder, but am expecting to need 2.

I'd go for 2 if you want them to match.

I did 3 last year, but lots of inserts. This year I'm trying to work with 2.

Thanks, everyone. I just ordered the second. I wouldn't have minded switching binder types mid-year if they were just a solid, but the Cobalt binder has such a strong design that I think they need to match.

I got mine through Becky Higgins's Amazon page. If you want something from her collection, I think that's the only place they're available. (Though I might be wrong about that.)

I'm doing digital and hoping it will fit into one binder but if I have to do two then I guess I will!!! I'm going to try and print every month so I can keep an eye on it! I haven't decided if I'm doing my normal 8x8 or if I'm gonna be bold and do the 12x12 so I haven't ordered a binder yet!!

I think I might print my first pages in both sizes and see which on I like best!!

This is where I am! I can't decide if I want to do 8x8 or 12x12. Printing both sizes as a test is a good idea!

I used to scrap 8.5x11, and I had the same page printed in both sizes when I decided I wanted to switch to square pages. I could tell immediately which was better for me, so I think that's the way to go if you're debating.
