My Paper Planner

I can’t be the only one who still uses a physical, printed planner… right?

Sugar paper planner from Target -- pink

Last year I found an awesome pink planner as part of the sugar paper for Target collection. I have absolutely loved it because it has a spot for each day, but also a lined notes page for each week. I went to Target recently to purchase the 2015 version, but they changed the layout. It was terrible. I kept flipping through different sizes and colors of planners, hoping my beloved layout would appear. But it did not.

My disappointment drove me on a planner search that dragged across multiple evenings. I was looking to find another weekly planner with a notes page. I love that type of design because I can put my specific daily items under their day, and make lists of ongoing projects on the facing page. Especially since I have a few clients, all with different tasks, I find it easiest to list to-dos by group, not by day. For anyone looking for the same thing, I highly suggest going to this page on European Paper.

Leuchtturm1917 Weekly planner and notebook -- the outside

I eventually settled on a Leuchtturm1917 weekly planner & notebook, and I’m so excited to start using it. It looks a little more prestigious than my pink plastic 2014 planner, but I think I can rise to the occasion.

It has one weird little quirk, which is that each holiday has a country abbreviation listed very small in light gray in that day’s space. Normally it’s so little that you barely notice it, but on days like January 1st there are over 50 country abbreviations listed. Weird.

Anyway, this post wasn’t paid for or sponsored in any way. I just wanted to share my planner love, and find out if anyone else has very specific preferences on their physical planners like I do.

  1. You should contact the company! I wanted that planner layout again this year and couldn’t find it either! Surely we’re not the only ones disappointed. It was THE perfect layout and so pretty! Haha I am kind of obsessed!

      1. I completely agree with you about the planner. My new one has a monthly view, but it’s a vertical list, not the “normal” arrangement of squares. Oh well; you can’t win them all.
