6 Of The Best Planners To Help Kick Off The New Semester

Nothing says it's a new year like a new planner!

One of my favorite parts about going into a new school year is getting a new planner. Planners are one of my favorite things, it is, in my opinion, the best way to stay organized. There are a few planners I have been looking at that I think are some of the best. I have made a list of them in case you are looking for one as the beginning of this school year quickly approaches.

1. Lily Pulitzer Planner

Lily Pulitzer Weekly Spread

This is an agenda that has been a personal favorite since high school. At the beginning of every month, it has a month spread. Then after that page, it has a weekly spread. As students, that is a crucial aspect that some planners don't have.

2. A Passion Planner

Weekly Reflection

This planner is one that is helpful for everyone. Teachers, students, parents – everyone. The weekly spread is set up by the times rather then just a space to write. For example, you can write next to 7:30 a.m. "Spin class." This helps people plan out their days to the half an hour, rather than just writing down what you want to do that day. It also has a page that lets you reflect over your past week.

3. Plum Paper

Monthly Reflections and Goals

This one is my second favorite. I have never had it, however, I have looked at it and made my own one every summer. They can be expensive, but they are possibly one of the best and most universal planners. There are a ton of different add-ons that you can order along with the planner. They have meal plans, wedding planning, budgeting, blog planning, reflection, and so many more. Everyone can use this planner: teachers, students, business owners, parents, and everyone else.

4. Erin Condren's Academic Planner

Projects and Exam Spreads

This one is specifically for students. The first few pages help with keeping any projects and exams you have organized. It also has some pages that you can write notes in in case you forgot your notebook. This planner has everything a student would need, including stickers to remind you of important things such as tests or study groups.

5. A Bullet Journal

This is something you can make by yourself. Personally, I like to make mine in a Moleskin journal. They are a completely individualized agenda. In fact, you don't even have to use it as an agenda if you don't want to. You can put anything in them. You can make it an agenda, write shows you want to watch, make a daily health tracker, and there are so many more pages you can make. It is all up to you. Making this journal yourself makes it so much more personal, which makes it that much better to use.

6. The Prayerful Planner

Daily Spread

This is the last one I am going to suggest. This last one is one that has a little religion in it. I am putting it in here because there are some people are like to keep God in their day and this is a great way to do it. I personally like to have God in my life, and I think that this is perfect because it is the perfect balance between school work and God.

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
