Agenda Addiction


CONFESSION:  I have a mild addiction to organization -- more specifically, planners!  I typically go through two or three planners a semester.  Some I use simultaneously; others I use in isolation.  While going through storage I stumbled upon six different planners... yes, that's right: SIX.  All of which were used at some point during my college career.

Maybe I'm alone on this, but I always love seeing how people organize their lives.  I'm toying with the idea of dedicating a special segment of this blog to organization.  Today's post is a mini test run...  So without further ado, I would like to introduce three perpetual planners.  (P.S. a perpetual planner is one that allows you to fill in the dates as you go)

THE DAILY AGENDA

 This first planner comes to us from a place familiar to most.  That's right, Target.  Although they don't carry this particular style it anymore, you can purchase similar ones from the Russel and Hazel website.  It is a daily agenda that I used last year as a supplement to a monthly calendar.  Every morning I would transfer events to map out the day ahead.  I love being able to dedicate a whole page to one day!  I was devastated when a water bottle leaked in my pocketbook, damaging the bottom half of the pages.

THE UNCALENDAR (small)

I bought this second planner from the co-op at my school.  I typically don't believe in love at first sight, but this planner was the exception.  It is extremely versatile -- you can use it for anything you could ever imagine.  Whether you are in high school or uni, working a full time job or a staying at home, this calendar is for everyone.  You can easily tailor it to your own needs - whatever they may be!  Since I switch planners so often,  I love being able fill in the dates as I go.  The other great thing about this particular model is its size.  It is small enough to fit carry with you at all times.  They have lots of great options on the Uncalendar website

THE UNCALENDAR (large)

I loved the second planner so much that I decided to invest in the large one for my junior year!  I didn't think it was possible, but this agenda gives even more options for organization.  I used it to keep track of resolutions, assignments, and to-do lists.  I only included photos of the weekly view, but it also includes pages for monthly and yearly views.  On top of that, it provides spaces to doodle, and set/track goals!  Again, you can find this planner on the Uncalendar website.

How do you organize your activities?  Should I continue with posts like this? Yay or nay?

  2. I LOVE that uncalendar planner - I've never seen anything like it! I'm organization obsessed too and usually end up making something similar to that out of my moleskine planner, what a great find!

  5. It's really cool to see how you organize. I'm a fan of monthly planners, I just like to see everything spread out for me. I haven't really used a daily planner since college. I'm just not as organized during the day. I have an obsession with good planners and notebooks though!

  6. I definitely need to get a planner. I don't know why I haven't yet! I keep track of everything in my phone but I would so much rather write everything down.

    I love your handwriting, BTW!

  13. Big time planner here as well! My only issue has been that I have never found 1 planner that can meet all my needs... sooo... undecided to create my own! I'm taking ideas from the parts of each planner that I've found the MOST useful and I'm creating my very own planner to use each year (totally need a new printer). I plan to have a Household Binder that will gave a section just for a planner... will look into showing it off in the future!
