The future might be out of our hands, but the least we can do is stay organized with the things we can control! Even in the age of Google Calendar, Evernote, and Any.do, we, like many others, still love printed planners. Could it be the freedom of customization or that writing down appointments means you are more likely to remember them? Using a paper planner also gives you a much-needed break from the screen while keeping your appointments, to-do lists, and goals in check. Here, we present some of our favorite planners for 2022!
Not much bigger than a standard photograph, this planner is perfect for on-the-go organizing. It comes with a gold ballpoint pen that sits securely in the elastic holder, so you’ll never miss jotting down a thought, note, or appointment. The 12-month planner includes monthly and weekly layouts and has a dark turquoise polyurethane cover with an abstract line design. The planner also has monthly tab dividers and a ribbon marker to hold your place.
This hardcover planner is more than just an appointment-setter; it’s a thoughtful goal-setting and wellness journal that lets you reflect on what you want to accomplish in the year and tracks your journey of getting there. The planner begins with self-reflection, which helps you think about your values, struggles, motivators, and more. Some pages offer space to write down ideas, goals, daily routines, meals and nutrition plans, project planning, and more. Additional pages let you break down those goals, like how to hold yourself accountable, steps, milestones, and rewards. And the best part? It uses certified environmentally friendly paper. Choose from eight coated linen colors, from bold strawberry to neutral canvas.
This large planner from Paper Source features a black faux leather cover with a gold foil print. The floral and foliage design and gilded edges add to the luxe feel. The planner would look stunning on your coffee table or desk, but it also can fit snugly in a medium backpack or purse. It has monthly and weekly pages as well as areas for notes and plans. There’s also a faux leather interior pocket for any paper keepsakes, a pen loop, and black and gold ribbon markers.
This 12-month planner is a portable, spiral-bound notebook with monthly and weekly layouts. Each week has a coordinating page where you can jot down priorities and tasks to keep you in check. There are also plenty of lined pages to write additional thoughts, notes, or maybe even a poem if you’re inspired! The cover, which is available in lavender gray or natural linen, is made of a water-resistant book cloth with gold foil-stamped text. Brass wiring keeps the 190 pages tight and bound. For something extra-special, Appointed also offers monogramming done by hand.
If you like making your own rules, this planner is for you. Undated, this organizer from Bullet Keeper allows you to fill out the months and weeks and start whenever you want. The planner features a vegan leather hardcover, durable elastic band closure, and a pen holder loop and comes with weekly and monthly layouts, empty pages for notes and doodles, and monthly sticker tabs. An expandable back folder pocket holds any keepsakes like tickets, receipts, or photos. Choose from seven colors, including green, gray, and yellow.
