The Proof is in the Planner

Those of you who know me know that I am never without my planner. It goes with me everywhere! If I ever lost it, you would find me in an asylum because most likely I’d have gone off the deep end since my whole life is in there.

The time is coming for me to purchase a new planner for next year and my choices are endless! I’m not 100 percent sure which one I’ll get for 2015, but here are a few of my choices:

  1. Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

This is the trusty agenda I’ve had for the last two years in ‘May Flowers’ and ‘Chiquita Bonita’ prints. I love the fun, bright colors and the size is absolutely perfect! Plus, it comes with adorable stickers. I’m not sure that I want another planner that lasts 17 months though. The Lilly agenda has served me well, but I think it’s time to try something new.

  1. Erin Condren

Almost everyone else on the LC team has an Erin Condren planner, and there are so many wonderful things about them! The laminated cover is sturdy, it has a Ziploc pocket in it, you choose how many months you want, and best of all, you can customize the colors and have it personalized with your name. What’s not so wonderful about this planner? The price! I’m not sold on the $50+ price tag of these planners yet.

  1. May Designs

This company makes the most adorable notebooks and calendars with so many endless color combinations! I love the variety of prints and the personalization of your monogram, but I’m not a fan of how small and thin they are, so for now I’ll stick to May Designs’ stationary!

  1. Kate Spade

Definitely still a great option for me. I’m a huge Kate fan and –bonus- there is an outlet store in my hometown! They have adorable patterns and it looks a lot more sophisticated than some of the other planners I’ve seen. They are also fairly reasonably priced as well.

  1. Emily Ley

I’m obsessed with the color scheme of Emily Ley Simplified planners, but again, they are super pricey! I’m willing to invest for something I use so much but I’m also not as into the layout of these planners. Layout plays a really big part of choosing which planner to purchase for me because it’s how I organize my whole life!

  1. Sarah Pinto

These planners are geared more toward students so they have a good selection of academic planners, but I’m clearly no longer a student! They do carry weekly planners though, so I’m not ruling them out!

  1. Plum Paper Planners

This is a shop on Etsy, and I think this might be the one I’ve settled on! You can customize the cover and even choose the inside layout, which I LOVE! You can also choose if you want note paper added on the inside. I really like how customizable these planners are and the price is right at only $31!
