What Planner I'm Using Next Year

Call me crazy, but a fresh planner without any writing in it brings me so much joy! So much so that I get a little bit nervous before I write in it for the first time. I already have a few things that need to go on my calendar for 2020, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to put pen to paper for the first time just yet. Maybe once December begins, I’ll force myself to start writing things down, but for the time being, I’ll just let it sit on my desk (since naturally, it matches my room) without any of my schedule imposing on it. 

Based on my analytics from previous posts, y’all are very interested in my planner, planner organization, and the why behind what led me to choose one planner over the other. While I know 2020 isn’t here just yet, now is the time to go ahead and order one (before they sell out) or add it to your Christmas list. For those of you who have been around here for the long haul, you probably remember that from my sophomore year of college until last year, I used a Day Designer. Last year I opted for one of Emily Ley’s Dapper Desk Planners since it was a bit more compact, and while I loved it, I missed all of the room that my Day Designer had. You really can’t go wrong with either since the interior set up is very similar. 

I think one of the reasons I love my Day Designer so much is that each day has its own page. Let’s circle back to me being nervous about messing it up and write in it, well if I do end up messing it up, I get a new page the following day! Having each day broken down by hours is helpful, especially so when I was a student, and I still use it to an extent when scheduling workouts, time with friends, and when I may have work meetings throughout the day. Weekends are the only days in which you don’t have an individual page per day since Saturday and Sunday are together. I don’t mind this since now, especially, my weekends aren’t spent with especially long to-do lists. 

I will plan to share an updated planner organization post toward the end of January when I have mine organized how I like it, but I’ve included previous years’ posts below for you to get a better look at both the Day Designer and Dapper Desk.

  1. Thank you for sharing your planning idea. I've been wanting to get a planner like this for a long time. But because of my studies, I can't make much of a plan. For now, the main goal is to finish my studies on an excellent level. So I decided to buy a literature review paper to increase the chances of a successful thesis writing. And then I can start making plans for the summer.
