A popular New Year’s resolution is to be more organized and stay on top of your busy lifestyle. Having a fancy new planner will help with that.
I love planners. If I’m being honest, I really just love anything involving paper, stickers, writing, and scrapbooking. I’m all about the paper life.
I’ve never been one for using online calendars and to-do apps. Goodness knows I’ve tried. Google Calendar, Todoist, etc., I’ve tried so many, and I always quickly give them up because they’re not working for me. A good old fashioned pen and paper is my favorite way to plan my days, so I wanted to share some great planners to give you a headstart in 2019.
I adore my Passion Planner. Although being a little pricey (I spent $35 plus shipping), it’s completely worth it. It’s just as much a journal as it is a planner, and it’s large enough that you have plenty of room to get creative (it’s 7″ x 10″, larger than a standard size book). Alongside your normal planner pages, such as monthly and daily calendars, you also have room to write about good things that happen, personal and work to-do lists, monthly and yearly goals and wrap-ups, and plenty of blank pages in the back to do whatever you want with.
Passion Planner is my planner of choice, and probably always will be.
Erin Condren has absolutely beautiful planners and plenty of cover designs to choose from (my favorite for her Lifeplanner is the Vintage Floral). The nice thing about these planners is that they have interchangeable covers, so if you get sick of your cover halfway through the year you can just purchase another one.
The Lifeplanner comes complete with inspirational quotes, goal setting pages, and more. As a bonus, you can also get plenty of planner accessories such as page tabs, stickers, and more directly through their website.
That planner in the photo above? Gorgeous.
This is another planner company that has a ton of different options available for their planners, but their daily planner has a lot to offer. The Happiness Planner includes pages for a happiness roadmap to help you to “become more self-aware and understand yourself better,” reflection pages, and more.
The Panda Planner, aside from having an adorable name, has plenty of space for planning out your daily life. The feature I love the most is the morning and end-of-day review on each daily page. It’s a great way to set out your intentions for the day and then do a little recap at the end of your day.
Bullet Journaling has a devout following, and for many people, it’s the best way to keep track of your daily life and to-do list. Rather than having pre-planned pages for you to fill out, the journal is page upon page of dotted pages, so you can do what you want to with them. It’s perfect for people that want to create a daily planner that is specific to their needs.
