Picking The Perfect Planner

Being the type-A perfectionist I am, choosing a planner for the school year is no easy task.  I've had Lilly Pulitzer planners for the last two school years...but I think I'm ready for something else!  I've put together a little guide to some of my favorite planners...there's something out there for everyone!

 I use my planner to keep track of work hours, homework, club meetings, events, to do lists, and pretty much anything else that I need to remember.  Therefore, it's important that my planner is durable and has lots of room for writing...but being cute doesn't hurt either!

Which planner will you choose?


  1. Hard decision they are all so cute. Last night I just went to Target and picked out a Mead planner for $9.99. It's purple on the outside and has gray designs in the inside. I think its cute plus its practical. Montly view pages along with daily space. It works for me but I had more time and money I probably would have looked around for something a little cuter. I'm a mama and a full time student so I think my cheapy will so the trick! I love the Whitney English one, I'm a sucker for black and white!

  2. I'm a huge fan of my Lilly planner, but I did she'd to have a Sarah Pinto one I LOVED.

  3. You know how I feel about Erin Condren! I'll let you know what I think of mine as I start using it more (since I'm not, like, teaching yet haha).

  4. I can't get over how expensive planners are. Because I plan my life in multiple ways (wall calendar + desktop calendar + planner + on my computer & on my phone + lists & notes-to-self), I couldn't spend that much money or else I'd run out of cash for the other things!

  5. I absolutely love, adore, and couldn't leave home without my planner. It's so important for everyday life, blogging, and keeping up to date with the latest events. Personally, I think Lily is the way to go.

  6. I made mine this year... You could go by my blog and see it! But next year I will buy one. I will see when it's my time to choose.

  7. OBSESSED with my Erin Condren. I need to buy a new one for this year for sure! Plus the sticky note system fit perfectly in each day haha.

  8. I got my first planner last year for school and now I'm so attached! I got a cheapy one from Target because I wasn't sure how much I would use it, but now I'm so used to the layout of it, I had to get the same brand for this upcoming school year! Haha!
