Sometimes planners get to get really big, bulky and heavy. Erin Condren came up with their Petite Planners, where you can have three months at a time in 4 different planners. They can either be combined together in the Portfolio system, or you can carry around each 3-month planner as needed. Such a cool idea and they are light and airy.

Light and airy are the themes of these Petite Planners. Save money and buy the whole year together instead of separate.

A great planner for 20-21 years with thicker paper. We know that we will be erasing and rewriting, so having thick paper is really important with 12 months of lined pages from July-June.

This planner also comes with little pockets to hold any loose papers that you need. The best part is that this planner is inexpensive and very durable.

If you don’t like pre-made planners that have dates on them already, then this is the planner for you! This planner is quite large but it can be perfect to bring with you to your work bag because it is thin!

This company also makes different sized planners as well. Just 18 pages that you can personalize and use to your benefit. 

Vera Bradley has such amazing designs. If you like undated planners where you can personalize them yourself, this is the perfect one for you.

Each week is broken down with undated, lined sections for planning out the 7 days of the week. This planner is spiral bound and it has a thick, hardcover.

As a mom, we need planners! This adorable planner has the perfect items that we need to set up our daily lives. It’s the perfect size to fit in your bag and to bring with you wherever you need.

It is earth-friendly and it is a 17-month planner so you don’t have to switch all your important details often. The planner comes with over 300 stickers to mark appointments, activities, and tasks.

They also have the choices of weekly, monthly, wall, and desk planners for you to choose from.

(Planner, address book, and more!)

Need a place to keep all of your birthdays, plans, babysitter contact info, party planning info, and more? This is the planner for you. You can organize schedules, meals, contacts, chore charts, lists, and more all in one place.

There are special occasion monthly logs where you can input gift and thank you note checklists for parties! If you need help keeping track of charts, checklists, and chores, this is the right choice for you too!

This 17 month dated planner goes from August 2020-December 2021. It has beautiful foil stamping designs on the pages in the book. With the twin-ring spiral binding, it helps keep the planner held together well. There are double-sided pockets in the planner too so you can put any loose papers on there.

Erin Condren has a ton of different planner choices, but have you seen her Focused Planner? This is their black vegan leather, focused planner. It is a 12-month planner that features mini months, goals and intentions for months, monthly productivity pages and so much more! Another great feature is that they have 10 extra lined pages and 10 dot grid pages for extra notes.

As a teacher, having this planner is key! I have been able to write my lesson plans in, using grading, add my class lists and contact, and I was able to personalize my name on the front cover and design. There are so many choices for you to pick from and ways to personalize it. This planner has become my lifeline!  It has weekly, monthly, and yearly spreads for teachers to plan accordingly.

Includes:

  • 4 sticker sheets
  • 3 holiday sticker sheets
  • 1 Keep It Together Folder
  • 1 sheet protector (base option)
  • Snap-In Ruler 

Very much like the teacher planner, the lifeplanner is perfect for planning throughout the year. They have unique features of having custom designs that you can create for yourself or someone else if you are giving as a gift. Another great feature is that there are mini months, monthly quotes, monthly notes page and productivity pages. Also the planner has a ton of notes pages and contact pages. Unlike the teacher planner, this planner is small so it can fit into your purse.

Accessories for your planner

If you love planners, you definitely love decorating it and using felt pens! Here are some great accessories that are super inexpensive and great to add with your planner purchase on Amazon.

Final Thoughts

Shopping for a planner is hard, especially if you are picky like me. Make sure you view it, read the description, and go see it in the store if possible. Before deciding on the right one, make sure to view more than one. This way you can make a decision after you have thought about it long and hard. This is something that will be stuck with you for one whole year! Which one will you choose?
