Happy Monday friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, full of delicious food, rest, and good times with friends & family!!  Ours is always a little bitter-sweet because of my Grandmother’s passing, but we still had a wonderful time celebrating each other and the birth of Christ!

With the new year just around the corner, I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect planner to keep my life organized in the coming months!  I’m very picky about my planners, needing them to be laid out well, to have enough room for me to write for each day, and yet be compact.  I also like them to be aesthetically pleasing!  I found several that fit the bill, and wanted to share my favorites with you.  I’ve organized them according to price, starting with the lowest prices at the top.  Hope it saves you some browsing time!

Laurelle

 

TargetSugar Paper Black Weekly Planner – You really can’t beat this planner at just $13.  I love how the pages are gilded in gold, the corners are edged in gold, and the cover has twenty-seventeen written out in gold cursive, so sophisticated yet understated!  It also has a good amount of pages dedicated to ‘notes’ at the end.

TargetSugar Paper White Striped Weekly Planner -Another well-priced and cute planner!  Each week has two pages, one with all the days, and one with lines and little boxes for check marks for your notes and to-dos.

TargetMoleskin Weekly Planner -If you’re into the minimal aesthetic, this planner is the one for you!   It’s no-fuss!  It’s laid out similar to the one I just mentioned, with each week having two pages, one with all the days, and one with lines for your notes and to-dos.

AnthropologiePocket Daily Planner – This one is a little different than most planners, but if you’re looking to increase your productivity and learn how to prioritize this year, it would be great for that!

Paper Source – Rifle Paper Co. Jardin de Paris 17 Month Weekly Planner – I had last year’s version of this planner and really liked it!  I liked the artwork, how there was a quote at the top of each week, and how there was a little folder in the back for storing extraneous papers.  The only reason why I’m not buying it again, is because I didn’t feel I had enough room for writing things down for each day, and it’s a bit too big/bulky for someone like me, who likes to take their planner everywhere, and likes to use smaller crossbodies often.  Otherwise, it’s a great planner!

Paper Source2017 Luxe Page-A-Day Planner – The gold marble cover on this is so lovely.  While I usually don’t go for daily planners, as they’re so thick and I slightly prefer seeing my week laid out for me, I would make an exception for this one.  It’s really compact, and each day in divided in half, one half with lines where you could jot down times and appointments, and the other half black, for notes or to-dos.  Plus, it’s currently on sale!

Gigi New York – Black Embossed Python Weekly Desk Diary – This one is definitely a pricy one, but it’s made from real leather and is gorgeous!  Plus, it’s laid out really well!  I like how the days have a few lines for notes at the top, and ‘noon’, ‘evening’, and certain hours are marked, so you can see how your planned events look all laid out.   I also like how the monthly pages have lines for each of the days, and that there are maps and a place to record purchases/expenses.  Overall, it’s a great splurge if you really like your planners!

    Try to look at it the way that she still is there, celebrating with you! 🙂 I’m glad you still had a good Christmas and being a planning freak myself I’m quite appalled by realizing I haven’t got myself a good planner for 2017 yet. Oh well, I’ve got 5 days left, haha. Got to get on with it!!

    I’m such a planner-lover, but I don’t think I’ve ever truly learned to use them to their full extent! But I have had my eye on that Paper Source marble one for a while now, so I may just take the plunge and see what I can learn this year! Thanks for the fun round-up! Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

      Hi Stephanie,
      Same here! I write things down and forget to go back and look at what I wrote! haha! 😉 But that goes along with one of my goals for the new year- to be more organized and better manage my time! Hope you enjoy whatever you get and find it useful!
