My Favorite Planner Ever! (& Coupon for you)

Over the years, I have spent loads of time looking and way too much money trying out planners that didn’t work. But FINALLY I found the best one ever. It is just the right layout, size, and look I was searching for. I can’t keep this fabulous product to myself!

Ok. Here is the low-down…

The itsjustemmy planner comes in both a calendar year version (January-December) and an academic year one. I LOVE the academic format of August – July because I think of my “year” going from the beginning of August through the end of July. Although I do have a calendar app I use, I adore writing in this paper planner and seeing it on my desk or kitchen counter with my week spread out before me–in a vertical daily layout. (I think of my day from top to bottom, not side to side.)

All the itsjustemmy planners include both month and week-at-a-glance pages. And for fun, they can be purchased with the personalized designed covers or blank covers, if you prefer to add your own crafty touches. (I have sometimes had a Bible verse put on the front under my name. This year I chose a quote from Anne of Green Gables: “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet.”)

Why I love this planner

A few aspects I love about this planner: the pages are sturdy paper, perfect for writing and even highlighting. Instead of highlighters, you may wish to use Washi tape. You can come up with your own color-coding method, if you roll that way. Or just write in it all in pencil, if you wish. I actually love to use these erasable pens. They are the BEST!

I also appreciate that on the week-at-a-glance sections, there is a bottom square. You can use it to record tasks. I use it to list what I hope to serve for supper. Notice I said “hope.”

Other fabulous features:

  • Plenty of room for to-do lists and meal-planning or creative journaling about your activities
  • Spiral-bound so they lay flat nicely
  • Double-pocket folder to hold appointment reminder cards, receipts, coupons, and more
  • All planners with decorative covers can also be personalized for a small fee.

Ahhh!!! I just adore this useful tool! Trust me, once you feel the itsjustemmy planner love, you’ll never go back!
