Asterisk How to find Planner Peace once and for all -Intro-
21/12/2017 Heather in Planning / No comments

Welcome to the finding planner peace series. This series will be an in depth look at the many different types of planners out there. This will cover broad classes of planners as well as specific brands. I will dive into the pros and cons of each planner type. Keep in mind that these are my opinions based on the type of planning that I like. Also, I’m not even going to pretend like I have tried every planner out there, I have NOT! These reviews are for actual products that I have used and purchased with my own money.

The goal of this series is to examine each of the types of planners and to finally find planner peace (and if there is such a thing). My aim is to help you find a planner that will suite your needs without having to buy a bunch of different things (unless your into that). Throughout this entire series I will be rating each planner based on a few different factors.

  1. Cost
  2. Quality
  3. Functionality
  4. Appearance
  5. Portability
  6. Customization

Here is the scale:

  • Cost: $ (0-25), $$ (26-55) $$$ (56-85), $$$$ (86-100) $$$$$ (>100)
  • 2=Not worth it
  • 3=I guess?
  • 4=I will use this all the time
  • 5=I have found the rare sparkly unicorn

Be on the lookout for the first post about Ring Bound Planners!!!!

Have you found planner peace? What criteria would you use to judge planners? Let me know in the comments below.

XOXO, Heather
