2016 Diary Planner Round Up
Choosing your yearly diary (planner, to my American friends) can be a surprisingly time-consuming pursuit. A new organiser/scheduler/whatever you want to call it holds the promise of a new you: efficient, in control, and the kind of woman who would never forget a friend's birthday or a doctor's appointment. For these reasons, I think it's worth hunting for a really good planner - one that fits your bag of choice, and gives you enough space for all your to-dos - before you make the commitment. Here are a few of my favourites...
You can never go wrong with a Moleskine. The page a day format is useful for rampant list-makers.
Two, travel-friendly books for 'those of us who like to live six months at a time'. Cute idea.
A compact pocket planner with a simple weekly overview format.
Wipe the slate clean everyday with a simple to-list. For the minimalist in your life.
When I lived in London, a trip to Paperchase for a new diary was an end-of-year ritual. When it comes to finding an array of affordable diaries in a rainbow of colours and patterns, the British stationer still delivers.
Mix it up with a planner that features yearly and monthly overviews, plus extra pages for notes and specific work plans.
Both my parents used a Filofax while I was growing up, so I have immense nostalgia for these. Offering endless customisation options, Filofax organisers stand the test of time.
