The best planners for 2017

2017 planners, 2017 agendas, school supplies, planning

 

I get way too excited to pick out a new planner each year. I’m still on the school year schedule for a new planner, meaning I have to wait until August, but if you’re on the New Year schedule these are the cutest best planners that I’ve used and come across! To me, they serve as little journals of your year, so I hold onto mine after they’re used up.

I previously used the Kate Spade planner in 2015 and I still use it for decor on my desk. I’ve also used the Ban.do “I’m really Busy” planner in 2016. I’ve learned that I do prefer spiral planners over bounded because they’re easier for me to write in, but that’s all personal preference.  If you plan to tote your planner around, make sure to invest in a planner with a quality spiral and protected edges to help it last through the year.

Over the summer, I picked up this planner from Day Designer for Target that I’ve really been loving since starting work because it’s big enough to schedule every half hour, perfect for my patient schedule for the day. Don’t worry I don’t break HIPPA and use initials only! For those of you who don’t know, I’m a physical therapist, so my planner helps me keep up with units, patients, and unfinished notes for the day.  I really love the layout of my Day Designer for Target planner because of the to-do lists, note section, and today’s top three.

I recently picked up this little planner in the spotted print from Sugar Paper when I was at Target because I wanted a pocket planner to have on me for appointments and blogging. Although I love how big and useful my daily planner is, I can’t lug it around everywhere with me like I would like to. I’m hoping this one can serve the in-between purpose when I don’t have the other one on me. That was my excuse, anyway!

I’ve heard a lot about The Simplified Planner and The Day Designer planners, but I haven’t tried either of them out just yet. That’s probably because of the price if I’m being honest! Their covers are gorgeous, and I do like the durable spirals and gold edge covers, but as long as Target comes out with cute planners that get the job done I probably won’t splurge on one.

So far, I’ve been mixing up my planner each year. Do you tend to stick to one brand or do you like to try them all? If you missed me in 2016 you can catch up with my favorites from the year in my 2016 Year in Review. 

 

UPDATE! I’ve been using The Simplified Planner since January and it’s by far my favorite! I typically get bored of my planner or they end up sitting on my desk, but I have used the simplified planner daily and it has been life changing!

  1. I'm all about starting out the new year with a fresh planner and on a new note! I've been using the Coton colors planner this year and I really like it- but I'm hoping the new Ban.do or Lilly planners are winners this year! 🙂

    I have the Day Designer and absolutely love it! My only issue with it is that the cover rips off from the spirals along the edges when put in a backpack frequently. As long as you're not a student who has to lug it around in a book-filled bag it should be fine though!

  • I still have so much holiday shopping to do but I know my Amazon prime membership is coming in clutch this weekend! Spoken like the true millennial I am 🙌🏼 If you have any Amazon recommendations, let me know in the comments! I haven’t stopped wearing these OTK boots ($79) or petting this pink fur coat 😂 Literally, I always love to touch all the soft things. Tim always points it out when we’re shopping and I’ll subconsciously touch the racks to feel how soft things are. Anyone else??

  • Tonight I was so hungry when I got home from work I ended up eating chips and salsa, pita and hummus, and granola for dinner 🤣 Double tap if you know that struggle! I shared this look on strawberrychicblog.com today 🍓 Go view the post to see the cutest little Christmas tree in the background! Everything but the earrings are linked in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, but if you were wondering they were $5 from @walmart 🙌🏼.

  • These pretty blush booties are finally back in stock in all sizes and 20% off! They are seriously so comfortable and I’ve already worn them multiple times since getting them last month. Wearing my normal size in boots and I highly recommend picking up a pair 💕 They’re actually more neutral and easier to style than you would think! I’ll share a few looks with them in my stories.
