    4. Bullet journaling, free (plus price of any old notebook)

    6. LifePlanner by Erin Condren, $50–$75

    You've got a lot of options with Erin Condren (which is good, since it is...not cheap), but you can customize cover and weekly layout (vertical, horizontal, hourly), and — depending on the model you choose — it comes with snap-in bookmark; lined, blank, and graph pages; pocket folder; and a wire coil dipped in gold.

    7. Muji planners, £2.50–£11.90 (approximately $3.50–$18)

    8. Ban.do agendas, $20–$60-plus


    Ban.do agendas have a pretty cult-like following, which makes the bright and beautiful notebooks hard to find. These are technically 17-month planners, but (if you manage to grab one) that doesn't mean you can't start now. Each one is loaded with colorful art, stickers, quirky to-dos, monthly calendar view, weekly layout with plenty of daily space.

    The site sold out back in August, but you can find a list of possible retailers here, or find others in a good old-fashioned Amazon search.

    9. Mark's Storage.it pocket planner, £12.95 (est. $20)

    10. Kikki.K Time Planners, $39.95–$79.95

    11. Moleskine weekly planner, $15–$25.95

    Moleskine are the queens of the notebook game and they've got plenty of options as far as planners go — but the weekly planner is generally the most popular. Formatted to show one week on the left across from a lined page on the right, it's the perfect mix for appointments and note-taking — with an expandable pocket for mementos and an address book insert.
