It’s time to buy planners for 2021!
If you know me, you know a new planner makes me one of the happiest people alive. I love starting each new month, color coding things out, etc.
As a teacher, I see a lot of people love Erin Condren or The Happy Planner. I actually plan all digitally for school! However, I am a lover of the paper planner as far as my persona life and grad school go. I need things written down or I forget. I even have a hard time using Google Calendar. Yes, it’s a little embarrassing, but I love having a paper copy. Plus, I look back in my planners as journals.

Which Layout Do I Pick?
Planners have so many different layouts! Sometimes, it can be tough to pick. For me, I personally pick one that is either a weekly or daily layout. A monthly only spread does not work for me because I have too much going on and I fill it up.
When I was a working two jobs, plus going to school full time I used a daily layout. This way, I could look at my schedule for the day, and I knew how much time I had to spend on certain things.
Now, I use a weekly planner since I only have teaching, grad school, junior league, and ADPi’s Alumnae Association.
My advice when it comes to picking one is think about how much planning you really need to do and how detailed do you need it to be. Does it need to be planned down to the last minute? Are you keeping track of kids, mate, and yourself?
