If your New Year’s resolution includes being organized, these 10 stylish planners will help you plan out your day-to-day activities.
New Year, same grind. Even with the ongoing pandemic and its many new strains, life still goes on. From managing family affairs to doing all kinds of work—housework, work, or schoolwork—and all the in-betweens, the year 2022 will definitely be as eventful as the last… guaranteed.
And in order to keep track of all this business happening, a planner is essential. While some may prefer the more modern versions—digital planners and calendars, straight on their devices—other people (like me!) prefer the old-school planner, where you can write everything by hand and even decorate it to suit your fancy!
(Though if you ask me, it’s a good reason to go splurge on pens, stickers, and various stationery items)
Thing is, there is a serious commitment in choosing the planner that will accompany you all throughout 2022. After all, not all planners are made the same. And I’m not just talking about the cover design. Even the pages, the type of paper, the amount of space where you can write, the size… down to the overall aesthetic and the trackers—all those details are important in choosing the. Ultimate. Planner.
Still unsure? We narrowed the list down to our top 10 favorites:
