In my previous post, I talked about how to successfully set and slay your goals and why it’s so important to have the right action plan and a planner to help you get organized and on track. (And pssst.. if you haven’t read that post yet, I highly recommend you do!)
If you’ve made the conscious decision that you want to get closer to achieving your dreams and experience your best year yet, the next step of finding the right tool to help you get there can feel a little overwhelming. If you’re feeling a little lost and you’re unsure of which planner you should get, I break down 9 kick-ass options you can consider to get organized in my post today.
1. Erin Condren Life Planner
If you’ve been a long time planner addict, you’ve probably heard of the ever so popular Erin Condren life planner being talked about on the interweb. If you’re looking for a beautiful, functional planner that will improve your productivity and help you get your life together, the Erin Condren Life Planner is a must (they’re really popular for a reason!). They come in a variety of sizes, feminine covers, and formats so there’s probably one that’s right for you.
What I really like about Erin Condren planners are the corresponding stickers that they sell specifically made just for the planner to help jazz things up. This helps make your planning experience much more customizable and allows you to decorate it as creatively as you want it to be. It can even make goal planning a lot more fun and enjoyable and can turn it into a calming and therapeutic process.
2. Day Designer
Day Designer was designed in mind for women who want to live an intentional and meaningful life and this is exactly what this planner helps you do! Whether you’re a working mom, an entrepreneur, or a student, there’s definitely a planner from Day Designer that’s right for you. Choose from a variety of beautiful, feminine designs and sizes to help you stay productive and focused and find the right balance in your life.
Day Designer Daily Planner – If you’re in need of a daily workhorse, you’ll love their best-selling flagship planner. With a combination of both style and functionality, this planner is definitely an essential tool to help you get organized this year! The durable cover and strategically placed gold corners are great for protection if you need to carry this around. It even includes goal setting worksheet and daily inspirational quotes to help you stay motivated.
Day Designer Weekly Horizontal Planner – If you don’t need to write down too much on a daily basis, their weekly planner may be a better choice for you. The weekly planning comes with the same great style and functionality as the daily planner but in a more condensed format.
3. Kate Spade Agenda
Get organized and slay your goals with this beautiful Kate Spade New York 17-Month Large Agenda. Kate Spade always comes out with new elegant designs each year that are totally worthy of being picked up. If you’re looking for something girly yet functional, you’ll definitely want to pick one up for yourself or a loved one today. This academic agenda runs from August 2017 to December 2018 and includes a hidden spiral binding and a ton of features including gold foil stickers, a pocket to hold loose papers, and laminated dividers.
If you’re looking for a more classy agenda that is reusable and made of leather, check out the Kate Spade Grove Street Zip Around Personal Agenda. This leather zip around organizer runs from August 2017 to December 2018 and includes pages to add birthdays, to-do lists, addresses, and even houses up to 8 credit cards of your choice.
4. Moleskine Daily Planner
My most absolute favorite brand of planners and journals that I rave to everyone in both my personal life, as well as online, is Moleskine. Although their design is simplistic, their planners look professional, elegant, and so classy! Not only are they beautiful, they’re an absolute dream to write in as well because the pages are absolutely buttery smooth. The leather outer is also so soft yet durable and the binding allows you to fully open the journal and use the page up entirely.
You can choose from a variety of colors, designs (from ruled to blank to grid), sizes (including pocket, large, and extra large) and you can even choose between hard and soft covers. If you’re looking for a simple planner for everyday use to get organized, the Moleskine planners that I highly recommend are:
Moleskine Daily Planner – If you’re in need of a daily planner that has a ton of room, the Moleskine Daily Planner is perfect to plan your day in detail and help you stay organized. Each page is neatly laid out for you to write your daily schedule and add any extra notes you may need to complete your to-do list. This planner runs from January to December.
Moleskine Weekly Planner – Don’t need a lot of room to write out your daily schedule but you want to still keep track of your weekly schedule? The Moleskine Weekly Planner may be a good option for you. This weekly planner is more compressed so it’s easier to bring with you everywhere if you’re always on the go but it still comes with a whole lot of room to plan your week out and add any extra notes.
Moleskine Ruled Notebook – This ruled journal is perfect for on the go and to write notes in. Pop the pocket-sized or large-sized notebook into your purse if you’re going to a business meeting or in your school bag if you’re jotting down notes in class. Or get the extra large size to leave on your desk if you’re going to be at home!
5. Leuchtturm1917 Dotted Journal
If you’ve been using journals and planners for the past little while and want something a little different for inspiration and motivation, you might want to start a bullet journal. The Leuchtturm1917 Dotted Journal is a great option if you’re looking to venture into bullet journaling and want to have the ability to customize the planner to make it uniquely you. Like Moleskine, it comes with high-quality paper and is thread bound so that it fully opens and allows you to use the entire page. However, some key differences include dotted pages, a table of contents customizable by you, and numbered pages to help you get organized and easily find old notes.
6. Passion Planner
