For creative professionals, keeping track of your day-to-day life can be a daunting task. Managing your personal life with work obligations can feel overwhelming, but a good day planner goes a long way. Just carrying a planner around can make you feel productive, before you even get around to attempting any of the tasks within it.
Thousands of planners exist, but we’ve rounded up some of the best for every type of personality.
For the Traditionalist
You can’t go wrong with the basic Moleskine Planner. It’s a classic for a reason! Something about that trademark black cover and those slightly off-white lined pages just seems to instill a spirit of productivity. The Action Planner provides plenty of space to write in each day’s activities and reminders, as well as plenty of spare pages for note-taking or doodling.
For the Minimalist
Simplicity doesn’t need to be boring. Poketo’s Minimal Planner comes in six different colors and two sizes. Streamlined and simplistic, this planner is easy customizable with plenty of room for all the lists, appointments and tasks you can imagine.
For the (Sort Of) Free Spirit
Let your planner express how you really feel about sticking to a schedule. Kate Spade’s adorable Throw Caution to the Wind 12 Month Agenda comes packed with cute quotes as well as laminated tabs, monthly and weekly spreads as well as space for contacts and notes.
For the Dog Lover
Whether you’ve got a dog of your own or not, work even more canines into your daily routine with this adorable planner from Buy Olympia. The Best In Show Pocket Planner is a pint-sized source of pups to get you through the week. With illustrations by Heather Strianese sprinkled throughout, this planner’s got space to plan your life by the month, week or day as well as room for checklists, contacts, notes and other general miscellany. (Brainstorming cute names for dogs, etc.)
For the Fan of True Luxury
If you’ve got the cash to spare, why not spend it on this gorgeous and luxurious lambskin bound agenda book from Smythson? Handcrafted in the UK, this planner comes with a weekly layout printed on its pale blue pages. This planner is as much a luxury symbol as any designer bag this season.
