We may live in the digital world, but every January we’re giddy to purchase a new planner, analog style. There’s just something about writing in those pages, making doodles, crossing shit off the list and working on the lost art of penmanship that comforts us and makes feel organized AF. For many, day planners are ridiculously impractical, and yet they feel very modern and necessary in this day and age. Here are a few tried and true planners that we love and/or have been highly recommended to us by our most organized friends.
2019 Desk Diary in Orange Goatskin Leather, $105 Amy has been buying this same planner since 2004. She’s tried to quit it a few times but always returns to the classic look, large format pages, chic colors and the fact that it has everything you need and nothing you don’t.
The Daily Career Journal, starts at $30 Designed by Gia Ganesh, a career coach and member of our TWW community, the Daily Career Journal uses a clean and simple organizational system to help you set goals, track your wins (big and small), better communicate your value and hack your own career growth. We love it for the daily inspo and art sprinkled throughout.
Bullet Journal, $25 Highly revered and recommended by many TW readers, the Bullet Journal is a system, a practice and a journal. We know women at all stages in their careers and lives who swear by Bullet to keep them sane and focused. They even have companion app for the most die-hard followers.
Erin Condren, $30 Whether you’re dreaming up your next big idea, keeping up with school activities or simply trying to manage an over-scheduled life, these customizable life planners cover it all with detailed spreads, monthly overviews and many inspirational pages for goal setting. It’s quite the collection these planners make for a wonderful gift.
