Best Planner Options for This Year
The only thing left from Christmas dinner is the leftovers of the least favorite dishes. The children are enjoying their new toys. And you're debating whether or not to take down the tree and get the house “back to normal” or start organizing your calendar for the new year.
The tree can wait. Why not pull out the date list and last year's calendar and let's get started transferring all the important information to the calendar or planner that will keep you organized for success in the 12 months to come. If you're like me, you need one to manage the various members of your family and their respective activities, and another for planning your business campaigns, blog posts and product launches.
If you still don't have one, or don't have one you like, I've compiled a short list of planners I have enjoyed using through the years. Why not take a few minutes to look through them and find the one that suits you perfectly!
- Day Runner, refillable, 3 ring planner – the binders are well made and you can just buy the refillable pages for the next year. Easy to have all kinds of things organized together.
- Lilly Pulitzer, spiral bound, colorful and fun. Someone gave me the elephant one this year and I love it! (and if you're an Amazon Prime Member, you can get it with the free 2-day shipping!)
- On the Go – by HEDUA, a great planner, small enough to fit in your purse easily.
- Happy Planner – I like this one a lot because of the fancy modern design and personalizable options
- Personal Praise Planner black and white and classy, from Paradise Praises
- Elephants Printable Planner elegant in elephants, (have I mentioned they're my favorite?) from Paradise Praises
- Organizing and Goal Planning forms – Free from A Diligent Heart
- Budget/Finance & Household Organizing Printable – Living Well Spending Less
I have not used this planner (yet) but every year I look at it longingly. It's so colorful and fun, but a little pricy. Maybe next year I'll get Erin Condrin's Life Planner.
- Blog Like a Pro Master Planner is an awesome pack that is exclusive to members of The Blog Connection
- HEDUA has a full color spiral bound blog planner that has great reviews.
