Though I wouldn’t consider myself particularly organized, there’s one thing I always have on hand no matter my job or life situation: a cute planner. I’ve been buying new planners year after year for the longest time—and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. So as we head into the middle of summer, I’ve got my eyes on all the adorable mid-year planners available right now. And let me tell you, there are so many seriously cute ones. My desk is about to be covered in planners, folks.
When I was in school, I was always the type to take my notes by hand—and when I entered the workforce, that didn’t change. Rather than putting reminders in my phone or computer, I still prefer to write down my schedule, appointments and to-dos in a planner. I’ve found that having a physical place to jot things down forces me to write out everything I need to do and makes it easier to see my day, week or month as a whole. Plus, since there are so many cute planners out there, it feels like less of a chore to keep track of all your information. If you don’t want to do it for the organization, do it for the aesthetic!
And unlike using your electronics to keep track of certain things, a planner comes with endless creative possibilities. You can use your own drawings, fun pens or cute stickers to spice up what might look like a boring schedule—and make keeping yourself organized an actually fun experience. You can even use your planner as a journal to keep track of your thoughts, feelings or even just something you were up to on a particular day. I try to write one sentence per day so that future-me can look back and see what shows I was into or who I was always meeting with for coffee. The reminders app on your iPhone can’t do that.
If you’re ready to get your life organized—or at least make it seem like you have it all together—you can shop the cutest mid-year and academic planners below. Each runs from either July or August into the next year, so you don’t have to wait until January to start keeping track of your appointments and to-do lists. Getting your shit together never looked so good.
