At the beginning of the year, many people are looking for the perfect planner or notebook to help them get started to an exciting new journey. If you are new to planning, seeing “planner stacks” or “planner lineups” may be intimidating. I used to question why people thought it was necessary to have more than one tool to plan. But, now it’s more of a necessity for me to have multiple places to document different areas of my life.
I will list a few planners or journals that you might want to consider using for the new year. And, you can certainly stick to one planner or journal, you won’t be missing out. It’s all personal preference. In the list, I will highlight the tools that I currently have in my lineup.
- Daily Planner
- List Pad
- Finance Planner
- Devotional/Meditation Journal
- Business Planner
- Idea Planner/Journal
- Work/Job Planner
- Meal Planner
- Household Planner
- Social Media Planner
- Health/Fitness Planner
- Goals Planner
- Mental Health Journal/Tracker
- Self-Care Planner/Journal
- “Catch all” Notebook/Journal
Disclaimer: all of these aren’t necessary for everyone. And, they aren’t meant to be carried each and everyday.
I find it helpful to have printable sheets for some of these categories that I can store in my main planner for things like: goals, social media, self-care, book tracker and random notes.
I hope this helped you if you are considering designating a planner for certain areas of your daily life. Let me know your thoughts and what you plan to use during the year to stay on track.
