As a kid, I loved back to school shopping! I loved getting new binders, folder, pens/pencils, etc. I mean c’mon, Lisa Frank was the shiz. If you got that reference, you can probably tell how old I am now. =)
But one of my favorite things to buy was a new planner. I fell out of use of them as I graduated college and started working. Didn’t find a use for them when I got married either, but after having kiddos and having mom brain, I forget everything unless I write it down. The phone calendar and other organization apps don’t always help me, because I like to visualize it all. The day, the week, the month, whatever. And seriously, writing it down makes me remember it more than typing it into an app.
I’ve been using the Emily Ley Simplified Planner (pineapple) and love it! I highly recommend it! But alas, the time is ending on it, and it’s time to invest in a new one! After some research, these are the ones that are on my list to choose from! I’ve used the BlueSky and the Sugar Paper ones for years, and definitely recommend those for someone who wants more organization but doesn’t wanna drop a pretty penny on planners. They aren’t nearly as detailed as some of the more expensive ones, so it all depends on how much of your life you want to organize! I’m super type A and like to write down all sorts of details, so I like to have as much room and lines as possible to squeeze in all those tasks!
