While some people have moved well into the digital age when it comes to their calendars, I am one of those people who will forever prefer a paper planner. It all started back in sixth grade, when I was handed my first ever planner by my homeroom teacher. In an effort to get kids to be more responsible with their assignments, my school (district?) made them mandatory for all students. It was love at first sight.
Alas, now there are about a million different planners you can choose from, which makes things a little bit trickier. It took me years to find my perfect planner, and I hope these reviews will help you find yours.
- 130 undated sheets with abbreviated days of the week
- 8.5″ x 4″
- Wire-o binding (allowing planner to lay flat)
- Lined daily sheets segmented into Morning, Afternoon and Etc.
- Secured with an elastic band
Keeping It Simple
As far as planners go, it doesn’t get much simpler than this, which makes this a great option for someone new to planners. The top of each page has a space to fill the date in, as well as the days of the week – you circle the appropriate option.
Another major plus side to an undated planner like this is that it requires very little commitment. Do you not have anything going on Thursday? Skip it!
If you have several meetings or appointments, this may not provide enough room for you, but it could be super practical for someone who just wants to keep track of a few things. Plus, the reporter’s notebook layout/size make this one very easy to just toss into most bags.
Between marriage, parenting, work, two blogs, and maintaining some semblance of a social life, this planner is not for me, but might it work for you? Let me know!
And remember, this might not be the planner for you, but I’d still love to help you find the right one…or BE the right one for you.
