HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST PLANNER
Sometimes choosing the right planner to help us organize our busy lives can be downright a daunting task! But it doesn’t have to be that way! Choosing the best planner for your busy lifestyle comes down to a few basic components.
Planners come with all sorts of layouts. The most basic planner will either have a monthly, weekly, or daily view. If you want to see each day of the week broken down into hour increments (or other increments) then the daily view would be best. More thorough planners have all the views!
Do you want your planner just to be a basic calendar or do you want something more in depth? If you are looking for the best planner for busy women then I would suggest you find a planner that is multi-functional (goals, planning, grocery lists, etc).
The size of a planner may seem irrelevant but if you want the planner to be something you can easily carry around with you in your purse (or diaper bag if you’re a busy mom like a lot of us!!) then you will want to take size into consideration.
The look of a planner isn’t the end-all-be-all but if you are anything me – appearance matters with planners! If it’s attractive then I will want to use it more:) Call me vain…
