Happy Friday! Let’s just take a moment to smile and rejoice as we made it to the end of another week.
A few days ago, I knew I had to embark upon my annual exercise of selecting a new planner. I hate to wait until after January 1st to buy one, because the selection isn’t as good AND I have a slightly compulsive behavior where I must fill in the first day of my calendar/planner: filling a calendar retroactively just won’t suffice.
So I buy these sorts of things in December. Last year, I was gifted a 2017/2018 planner and it was absolutely perfect: seriously, it’s exactly what I would have purchased for myself. This year, I’m buying my own and I needed to find one that met my practical needs and aesthetic preferences.
My planner had to:
- Be pretty
- Have lined spaces for daily entries
- Include a space for weekly/monthly goals
- Have convenient at-a-glance calendars for this year and next year
- Lots of space for notes at the back of the planner
- Less than $30
I was delighted to find this beauty at Target for a little under $13. It’s perfect: pale pink with gold lettering, and generously sized.
I am already enjoying it so much. The first few pages of the planner have spaces for fleshing out your vision for the year, as well as milestone goals that you want to accomplish in different areas of your life. Talk about comprehensive!
This planner is by Day Designer and I highly recommend it. It’s beautiful and meets all of my requirements. I love it!
