Five different planner types that you can check out and shop before the New Year
After Christmas comes the fanfare over another exciting holiday. 2021 will be here in a matter of days. And in the spirit of turning over a new leaf, we’re already thinking about getting our ducks in a row with a new day planner in tow. The question now is: which ones deserve a spot on your shortlist?
Before you hit add to cart, here are five planner picks for your consideration:
This one is a true, back-to-basics essential. The Everyday Classic Planner is simple and straightforward. It’s perfect for jotting down 2021 goals you have your sights set on that you then get to pursue through smaller, doable tasks that are built into this planner’s system. The pages are heavyweight and bleed-resistant, and curated to maximize productivity.
Is a planner roundup really complete if it doesn’t point to this Christmas pastime? When it comes to CBTL’s 2021 Giving Journal, collecting holiday drink stickers is completely optional. Go straight to making your selection from the quartz pink, teal, and, purple colorways, and enjoy the limited-edition planner that comes with stickers and special coupons. What’s more, getting this day planner means chipping in for a good cause at Real LIFE Foundation.
Here’s a planner with thoughtfulness baked right in. On top of plotting daily to-do’s and weekly agendas, Scribble Journal owners get to participate in wellness and mindfulness checkpoints through its mental health mindfulness pack, 30 days of daily affirmation, monthly self check-ins, and more.
This is as customizable as a planner can get. The Leuchtturm1917 bullet journal puts you in the driver’s seat of organizing your life by giving you a clean slate. You can set it up the traditional way (learn how to do that through a step-by-step breakdown by the original Bullet Journal creator here) or jazz up the pages using organizational systems you already know work for you.
What’s the Focus Journal all about? It’s a tool you can use to declutter your life by creating a plan that is both simple and flexible. It comes with a “Focus of the Year” page where you can start off with a general overview of your 2021 goals. Once you’ve determined what you want to focus on in the new year, you get to effectively keep tabs and work your way toward them month by month.
