Best 2023 Planners and Journals
Benefits of having a paper planner over a digital planner:
If you spend a lot of time in the digital world for your work, ie on your phone and computer, having a paper planner can be a great way to be more mindful & present when planning.

The unlimited creativity that comes with a paper planner can help you to honour and enjoy your planning process. The creative process can help your planning process to become more memorable and interesting. With a paper planner, you have the option to add decorations such as washi tape or stickers, use different coloured pens, hand lettering and doodling! You have the option to create your own planning style, incorporate your creative flare into your planning and make creativity a part of your weekly routine.

A paper planner doesn't require access to the internet or electricity! Your personal information is not at risk of being hacked, leaked or lost due to technology issues.

Which Planner Should I Get?

Benefits of a Dated Planner:
If you feel overwhelmed by your schedule and to-do list, a dated planner will help you to stay organised and accountable for your important tasks.  Using a planner helps us make sure our essential tasks get done first and create a sense of accomplishment. A dated planner includes the dates and months, so that you won't lose track of any deadlines or important appointments, making planning easy!

Dated planners are great if you need to regularly schedule appointments and deadlines and look at your week or month at a glance to see what's coming up. Dated planners are designed to give you more structure, in a way that's easy to use.

Benefits of an Undated Planner:
An undated planner can give you more flexibility! Undated planners are useful if you have an unconventional schedule, like a freelancer, student or events planner, where you can sometimes have super busy weeks and quiet down time during other periods. If your schedule isn't the same day-to-day, you can use an undated planner to organise your busy weeks without wasting pages on your quieter weeks. You can also use an undated planner as a space to work on side projects that are separate from your day-to-day schedule, such as creative pursuits, classes, fitness goals and separate business ideas etc. With an undated planner, you can customise the timeline and calendar to your projects needs and when you are available to work on the project.

Which planner is best suited to your planning style?

Do you like to write? Do you need a daily to-do list? Do you need to schedule appointments and deadlines? Would you like a guided journal to help you change habits and reach goals throughout the year? Read more about our best 2023 Planners & Journals below to find out which planner is best suited to you:
