Personal Planner For Me is here to support your addiction to organization and save you time when selecting your next planner by sifting through the options and providing you with honest positives and negatives of each.  Below is the criteria this site uses to shop and report back to you.

  • Size and Weight:

    If you are someone who likes to take your planner with you everywhere then you should consider the size and weight of the planner, it should be able to fit in your bag and should not weigh too much.

  • Granularity:

There are monthly, weekly and daily planners available, so you should determine how you would like to plan and then select the option best suited to your scheduling style.

  • Binding Style:

From standard notebook style, spiral bound with a variety of material covers, or custom planners that you can refill- which style are you?. 

  • Design:

Pick a design that is perfect for you, since you will be spending quite a lot of time on your planner and filling it.

  • Sturdiness:

A planner is something you would most probably carry around with you to fill in on the go if the need arises. Therefore, it will go through a lot of wear and tear so make sure before getting one that it is quite strong and sturdy.

A personal note-

My personal dayplanner addiction started in high school.  The nerd that I was, and probably still am, got excited about trips to the local Franklin Covey store.  I wasn't always consistent about using it, but I adored picking out a new binder and the stunning new pages that I would fill it with and look at for the next year.  Anyway, the tradition continues and to this day I always have a planner nearby.  And to this day, sometimes I am diligent in using it and sometimes it becomes a glorified notebook.  I am quite particular when it comes to day planners and hope that my "snobbiness" helps you to wade through the options and end up in a happy relationship with your planner too.  Technology is great- love my iPhone, but for me, there will always be something wonderful about being able to reference all sorts of information in my planner without switching apps and trying to remember where on my phone I left a note.

Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day with me and may the perfect journal be on its way to you,
