Planners are a girl's best friend - they are what we use to map out our lives, hold ourselves accountable, and ultimately keep us sane. I know that, for me, my planner is my lifeline. I spend ridiculous amounts of time selecting the perfect one each year, and so I thought I'd put all those years of research to use and help my fellow planner lovers out in 2018! Below are my seven favorite planners for 2018, including the one I ended up purchasing for myself!
I used a Passion Planner all throughout college and L O V E D I T! One of my favorite parts about this planner is that it breaks down your day into 30 minute segments beginning at 6am and ending at 10:30pm. For someone who often had early mornings and late evenings, this was clutch! It also gives you creative space at the beginning to map out your short-term and long-term goals! The open area for notes was nice, too.
I'd recommend this for: students, young professionals, and entreprenuers
2. Plum Paper Planner **Tori's 2018 choice!**
I recently discovered Plum Paper Planners and ended up purchasing one for 2018! These planners are unique in that, you essentially get to create it all on your own. This was very appealing to me, because you can add in extra sections like "blog planning" or "fitness tracker" within your planner! You can tell that it's a very high quality planner - I can't wait to get mine in a few weeks! They are colorful and fun without looking unprofessional, so you can create one that fits your personality and be proud to whip it out at the office!
I'd recommend this for: students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, teachers, business owners, and moms
Day Designers are super chic and give you tons of space for daily to-dos! The only thing I dislike about this planner is that, rather than being able to see your whole week at a glance, you can only see two days at time because each day uses a whole page (a pro or a con depending on your personal taste!)
I'd recommend this for: young professionals, moms
For those of you who live by the motto "less is more"...this may be the planner for you! No frills here other than the artistic covers ;) With the Rifle Paper Co. Planner you simply get a monthly spread and a basic weekly spread.
I'd recommend this for: students
Simple and chic: that's how I'd describe Sugar Paper Planners. They are similar to Rifle Paper Co. Planners in that they don't offer a whole lot of room for creativity, yet, their weekly spread only takes up one page...leaving you an entire extra page for notes and to-dos for your week! I also think they look a tad more professional than the rest.
I'd recommend this for: students, young professionals
I've used Gallery Leather planners in the past and have really enjoyed them! They look super professional and come in all sorts of colors as well as weekly/monthly spread options. This is also another planner that only offers the basic necessities of an agenda. I used one in high school and for a bit in college before making the switch to the Passion Planner.
I'd recommend this for: students, business professionals
I really dig the May Designs company as whole (planners are only a small part of what they do)! Like Plum Paper Planners, you can create your own May Designs Planner from scratch and build it to perfectly fit your needs! They have so many unique patterns and prints available to choose from! The one issue I have with this planner is that it's only offered in paperback. I definitely prefer a more sturdy planner.
I'd recommend this for: students, teachers, moms, young professionals, creatives
