If you know me in real life, you know that since I got my first paper agenda in elementary school I have loved a paper planner. I get it from my Mom who to this day maintains a paper family calendar that hangs in the kitchen then carries around a small paper calendar in her bag as well.
In high school, my planners mostly came from Target, then in college I loved my Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade planners (color coded of course).
After college I have tried a few difference planner options, like the Erin Condren Life Planner and the Simplified Planner from Emily Ley.
This past year I used the daily fancy floral planner from Emily Ley and while I love all of the to-do-list space it entails, I am finding that I have not been utilizing it to the best of it's abilities. I still make lots of to-do lists on post-its or in the moleskin notebook I always carry so I am actually going to transition back to a weekly spread. TODAY the simplified planners launch for the academic year (yes, I still follow the academic year since I work at a University) and I am so excited to get my hands on a weekly navy and gold pineapple planner.
Now if you are having difficulty looking for a planner, here are five options!
IF you are leaning towards the Day Designer, you can test out the layout with a free daily page here. Also, Day Designer has a line with Blue Sky so you can find that collection here which features weekly planners, wall calendars, and monthly calendars .
The weekly editions are not wire bound but book bound and feature a ribbon book mark. There is still an inside pocket and monthly views but each week is spread over two pages rather than six.
If you wanted to test out the daily or weekly page layouts you can get a free printable here.
I hope this overview helped if you are in the market for a new planner!
Are you a paper planner person?
Do you color code? Use stickers?
