Ah planners!

I have such a love/hate relationship with them.

I LOVE the idea of being so organized. Yeah sure, I’ll write down all of my appointments, to-do list and goals.

I HATE that I never actually do that!

I have “used” a Passion Planner for the last three years now and they have recently changed their sizing option which had me thinking that, if I have to make a change, maybe I should take a look at what else is out there.

And so the hunt begins!

Last year, I tried using two planners. The compact Passion Planner to keep record of appointments and to time block (keeping track of where I was spending my time – work, flex time, etc.) It was basically a snapshot of how I spent each day.

I used the classic Passion Planner for my side hustle. To-do lists, ideas. All that fun stuff. I did not like that there were times in the daily columns so I covered them up with washi tape (can you say, cute and colourful but sooo time consuming!?!)

I’m on a mission this year to consolidate into one planner.

Oh, and it has to be pretty!

That is non-negotiable!

What else am I looking for in a planner?

  • A monthly spread that does not have lines in it
  • Weekly spreads with lines for writing and no times
  • It would be nice if within each day there was some sort of separate space to keep personal and business appointments and to-do lists separate
  • A monthly goal page would be nice
  • Blank pages at the front or back are not necessary but would also be nice

After doing a poll in the Female Solopreneur Community Facebook group and a Google search of the best planners for 2019, I have a (modest) list of twenty-six sites to check out.

My tea is made and I am ready to dig in!

I’ll be back in the next post to bring you a breakdown of my favourites. (You can check out my top 7 picks HERE)
