    21 Planners For 2019 So You Can Have Your Most Organized Year Yet

    I know you say this basically every year, but 2019 IS THE YEAR YOU REALLY GET ORGANIZED.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Note: All planners are 12-month unless otherwise stated — i.e., undated, three months, etc.

    1. A Simple Elephant agenda with non-dated and straightforward pages that aims to unclutter your mind and give you the tools to help organize your goals (short and long term), recognize and appreciate your success, and all around motivate you to get shit done.

    BuzzFeed, Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Undated pages, so you can skip weeks and pick up where you left on without losing pages

    –Weekly spreads with “Goals For This Week, “Successes,” and “What I Can Do Better”

    –Two "My Focus" pages in the beginning of the planner where you list out what you’re grateful for, write down some affirmations, and write down your top five goals — so you can refer back to them throughout the year

    –"My Mindmap" and "My Vision Board" pages to ~engage both sides of the brain~

    –59 blank journaling pages at the back

    –Stickers!

    Promising review: "Love this planner. I love the free-form format. You can skip weeks you know you're out of town or whatever and save those pages for another time. I think my favorite part of this planner is the first two pages. Everything to do with this planner is how YOU make it. For me, it also helped (kind of made) me reflect on things I really do want and goals I really do want to achieve. Words of affirmation was difficult for me to fill out so I looked them up online and wrote the ones that spoke to me most. How I want to/should be seeing myself." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in three colors).

    2. A delightful Bookfactory pocket organizer for the person who’s literally always running to the next appointment, errand, meeting, etc. and wants to make sure they don’t miss a single thing, no matter how crazy the day.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Ignore the 2018! This planner is the 2019 edition, I promise — they just update the same listing each year.

    What it includes:

    –Flippable notepad

    –Straightforward weekly lined pages (with slightly smaller sections for Saturdays and Sundays)

    –Yearly "advanced planning" pages broken down by months

    –16-page full-color world map

    –Places to jot down birthdays, anniversaries, addresses, notepad, and telephone numbers

    Promising review: "This is the perfect pocket calendar. I order one every year. It is equally efficient for use as an appointment calendar, or a diary of daily activities, recorded after the fact. I find the latter is a more effective way of documenting my time, as the day rarely goes as anticipated, so I end up with an accurate accounting of what I actually did during the day, as opposed to an aspirational agenda of what I intended to do." —K. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    3. A sturdy and ultra-polished Day Designer planner that looks like it was designed for Instagram (it's time for a desk flatlay pic!) and really doesn't gloss over any details to keep your life smooth, running, and most importantly, mindful.

    BuzzFeed, Rachel W. Miller / Via buzzfeed.com

    What it includes:

    –Sections for “the Four D’s”: due, dollars, dinner, and don’t forget (!!!)

    –Daily pages with a hourly schedule (7 a.m.–7 p.m.), a column for your to-do list, and small sections for notes and gratitude

    –Front cover comes with a pocket

    –Personal values and self-assessment pages

    –An "ideal week" planner

    Promising review: "I can't wait for 2019 so that I can use this lovely planner. I have been adding all my info/future dates on the ample calendar pages, and started planning my year and thinking about my goals. I love the daily layout as I like to write out what needs to be done, and then writing out my top three goals and ending the day with gratitude. All the other stuff on the page is just bonus. I also started writing what I am grateful for on each day of the 2018 calendar page, and it will be fun to look back on as 2019 moves forward." —Amo

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (mini size) or $54.99 (regular size).

    4. A color-blocked Pretty Simple organizer with monthly overviews and spacious weekly lists that you'll be able to whip out next time someone invites you out — the conversation will go something like, "Hmm, let me see if I can pencil you in. My secretary's off for the day."

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Each monthly spread contains an overview of the month, a notes section, inspirational quotes, and fun holidays

    –Each weekly spread includes space to write your daily schedule, as well as a to-do list

    Promising review: "This is my third time using this agenda. I love the format and use it as my appointment book because it has plenty of room to write things down. I also like that it has the full calendar view before each month, but then follows up with spacious weekly pages. I also like that it isn’t spiral-bound. Good quality cover and paper." —apscis

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99. Check out everything else Pretty Simple Planners has to offer, including cute floral, mermaid, and cactus themed options.

    5. A personalized, handmade Sugar and Type planner you'll treasure forever and forever — or, until you get one for next year — it keeps you goal-oriented, accountable, and even relaxed (because nothing winds ya down like some good 'ol coloring pages).

    Sugar and Type, Sugar and Type / Etsy

    What it includes:

    –Monthly overviews with goals, priorities, to-do list, notes, and reflective section for "last month's high fives"

    –Budget and habit tracking pages

    –Handlettered quotes and coloring pages

    –Access to free online printables

    –Grocery lists

    –Plenty of notes space

    Promising review: "I would pay regular price again just to support your business and your work. I ended up getting a planner for my sister too, and she loved it just as much as I do! The detail that went into it and the quality is unmatched. The size is absolutely perfect, not too big! Will purchase next year — this time before the year starts. It definitely makes me feel like I have my life somewhat together! Thank you for that!" —Danielle Upson

    Get it from Sugar and Type on Etsy for $36+ (with custom, semi-permanent handlettering costs $44).

    6. A marbled, spiral-bound Bloom Daily Planners organizer with the added bonus of free printables to jazz up your plans for the week, month, and year! And that's on top of its goal setting, goal tracking, 2019 vision board, and reflection pages. All beautifully bound, just for you!

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Your typical monthly and weekly spreads, but also includes a personal mission statement prompt and yearly goal setting page, weekly scheduling templates, goal setting and tracking pages, 2019 vision board, major holidays list, notes pages, contacts/address book pages, inspirational quotes, and monthly reflection questions

    Promising review: "Stiff cardboard cover with many artsy choices. Front and back covers have current and next year calendars inside with pockets. Each month has a tab and a two-page calendar of the month, followed by lined daily spaces with a week on every two pages. Plenty of room to record appointments, or to keep a diary or journal. At the end is a page where you can list important dates for next year and one with spaces to answer questions about 2019 as an overview. There is also information about how to access free printables such as expense trackers, holiday printables, desktop backgrounds, coloring pages, and much more. It is spiral-bound so it stays open easily. This is a gem!" —Sharon S.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    7. A 13-week BestSelf Co. planner — which you can also buy as part of a year-long, four-piece set — designed to give you more space than a yearly planner, so you can understand, orient, and distribute your time *and* break down your goals in smaller, more manageable time frames.

    BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    And, if you're not super sure about committing to a whole year, this might seem like a less daunting choice. Or you can go for a ~focus sprint~ just at the beginning of the year to keep you revved up and motivated.

    What it includes:

    –Daily page spreads with one page for an hourly 6 a.m.– 9 p.m. schedule and a column for notes + ideas, and a second page for planning a goal, specific targets to meet, and jotting down lessons learned, wins, and things you're grateful for (morning and night editions!)

    –Plenty of space to plan out each hour of the day, like a tangible Google Cal!

    –19 grid pages for miscellaneous notes, longer-form ideas, etc.

    Promising review: "This journal has allowed me to start and end the day in the right frame of mind. I have always been fairly productive, but as I prepare to defend my dissertation, apply for faculty jobs, write journal articles, teach my courses, and observe student teachers, I have to be very intentional about my time. The journal has allowed me to see where I am losing time and has improved my productivity drastically. In fact, I am doing more work than ever before, but feeling more relaxed and energized. I also like writing out what I am grateful for and my wins for the day as this helps me see that I am improving. I am so thankful for the journal and I really like how my goals are always in focus. Fantastic product that I would suggest to anyone." —Cody P.

    Get a single planner from Amazon for $33 (as a single planner) or a year-long, multicolored set of four for $102.99.

    This is our pick for best high-priced planner on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    8. An adorable Panda Planner for anyone who gets overwhelmed at the sight of a dated planner and would rather dictate their own pace and goal progress.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –185 daily pages (six months worth, or it'll last longer if you don't use it every day) that also outline what you're grateful for, excited for, the day's priorities, and end of the day reviews

    –Weekly pages with sections for last week's review, upcoming week's plan, projects, and top goals

    –Monthly pages include sections for writing down goals, why you have that goal, and distractions to avoid, as well as reflection sections for writing wins, when you were your best, and insights gained

    –Access to eBooks (on topics like “How to Crush Your Goals”) and a video mini-course on productivity

    Promising review: "I ordered this with the low expectations of planners that most ADHD'ers have. With most traditional planners, the dates are all filled in, meaning that if you miss one day, three, or twenty, those pages are all lost. Furthermore, most planners only focus on what you are planning to do, should do, and should have gotten done. This planner totally takes a different tactic, which makes a huge difference. This planner forces you to not only consider the things you got done, the things you didn't, but also asks you to consider your wins for the day, the things you are grateful for, and includes some built-in positivity. So far, I really love it. The daily, weekly, and monthly sections being separate from each other, instead of chronologically sequenced may seem odd at first, but for those of us who can sometimes forget to pick it up for awhile, it saves a vast amount of paper and improvement, and filling in the dates doesn't take that long, if you take it one month at a time. Also, they include page markers to help navigate between the three sections. I would highly recommend this planner to other ADHD'ers, creative types, or those who start to feel shacked and/or vaguely panicked by the traditional planner design." —Prometheus Lass

    Get it from Amazon for $37.97+ (available in four colors).

    9. A super detailed, second brain–like Full Focus Planner that spans three months and is extremely goal-and-task-oriented, instead of a planner that simply has you list out deadlines. This way, you can write out the motivations/intentions behind each goal, track your progress, and keep yourself accountable.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Daily pages to outline your "daily big three" tasks, with sections for other tasks and an entire page dedicated to notes

    –Weekly Preview pages that let you reflect on last week's biggest wins, goal progress, what worked/didn't work, and plan for the week ahead

    –Goal Detail pages that outline each goal you have, key motivations, next steps/action items, rewards, and StreakTrackers

    –Daily ritual pages detailing what you do in the morning, work startup, work shutdown, and evenings and how much time is allotted for each

    –Ideal week outlines

    Promising review: "I'm an organizer and a planner, and this thing is a total asset to me. I've spent many years bouncing between online organization via my calendar, Onenote, Asana or writing to-do lists — I even tried to draw my own goal-based daily planner in a blank notebook! This planner has solved that problem and has even become a template to help my employees make the most of their days in a positive, habit-forming, and goal-oriented way! Great product." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    10. A weekly-based, Peanuts-themed Moleskine featuring an inspirational quote from the one and only Charlie Brown — may he learn to stop kicking Lucy's football, and may you never miss a single appointment over the course of 2019!

    Moleskine, Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Ivory-colored, 70 GSM paper

    –Useful info pages: planning, time zones, international measurements, dialing codes, and flight durations

    – Expandable inner pocket

    – Matching ribbon bookmark

    – Reusable themed paperband B-side featuring additional printed tools

    –180° lie-flat opening

    Get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble for $24.95 (also available in a yellow, pocket-sized version).

    11. A compact and undated 5" x 8" Lemome notebook with crisp monthly, weekly, and daily breakdowns — the latter of which has to-do lists and checkboxes — for the busy (and possibly picky) person who wants something chic yet extremely functional.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –222 acid-free paper, which means it resists damage from light and air

    –Expandable inner pocket, pen loop, two bookmarks

    –48 pages for notes

    –Mindmap and Yearly Goals pages

    –Unnamed tracker pages

    Promising review: "I am the pickiest planner snob I know. Most people can just pick up any old planner and be fine, but with my busy work life and home/family schedule — but I LOVE THIS PLANNER. I have to have a planner with a vertical layout, so I can block out my meetings and this one is marked by the quarter hour, which is great and you CANNOT beat the price. I was paying $35 for an OK planner that fell apart by the middle of the year. I love that it has a pen holder and a pocket in the back for notes. Will be buying this planner from now on!" —Meaghan Holmes

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. A faux-leather-bound Day-Timer planner for that rugged, ~lived-in~ feel. It comes with references pages and pockets, as well as all the pages for detailing diary/work records, appointments, phone calls, and expense records that you could ever possibly need!

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Three months of undated, tabbed, and day-to-day planning pages

    –12 monthly calendar pages

    –Loose-leaf reference pages

    –Business/credit card holder

    –Vinyl zip pouch

    –Notepad

    Promising review: "This is the second time I have purchased this exact day planner. The only reason I bought a second is because I couldn't find the first. It works great and I love how you can zip it up, so everything stays enclosed and can't fall out. I have two one-and-three-year olds and this way when one of them grabs it when I'm not looking, I don't have to worry about losing anything. My original one held up great for the three years I used it, and still looked brand new. I expect that this one will do the same." —Jason P. White

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99. You can buy refill pages here.

    13. A sassy and self-aware Gift Boutique "I'm Such A Professional" planner that breaks down each day with a detailed yet simple format, as well as a much-needed dose of humor — so you can tackle life with plenty of optimism.

    Shopbop

    What it includes:

    –Daily pages that lists a fun pop culture fact and a holiday attached to the day, like St. Patty's Day or Awkward Moments Day, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. hourly breakdowns

    –"Sweet Dreams" sections for notes and misc. doodles

    –To-do (or to not do) lists

    Get it from Shopbop for $40.

    14. A mesmerizing holographic Ban.do planner you can't help but be happy about filling out — once you've stopped staring at the cover, that is. Because what's the fun in organizing all your shit without cute stickers and artwork?

    Ban.do, Amazon

    What it includes:

    –100 GSM (grams per sq. meter) wood-free pages

    –Coloring pages featuring artwork from Georgia Perry

    –Three sticker pages

    –Double-sided pocket page (i.e. for keeping receipts and bills in)

    –Laminated color-coded month tabs

    –Virtual reality page

    –Foldout poster

    Promising review: "This is my third Ban.do planner. It’s fun, bright, and cheerful. I have fun with the stickers and there’s plenty of room for dates and notes. Love the way this planner is organized, and it's the perfect size for me. I work in marketing and I appreciate the creativity the artists have added. Btw, I’m 59 and the planner is not too young for me!" —Grace H.

    Get it from Amazon, Ban.do, or Barnes & Noble for $28. Also available in a version with a holographic "This Will Be My Year" phrase on the cover.

    15. A no-nonsense Blue Sky planner that does without the extras and gives you only what you need: the month-at-a-glance followed by weekly pages that have more than enough room for all of your appointments and reminders — you might just become a loyal user for years on end.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Monthly view pages organized by tabs, with note sections and mini previous and next month reference calendars

    –Roomy weekly view pages

    –Contact pages

    –Notes pages

    Promising review: "This is the absolute best 'no frills' planner. No visual distractions, and no times included (because how many of us are dentists planning our days in 15-minute increments, anyway?). I have been using this planner for at least five years and plan to continue using it." —Against Bad Poetry

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sizes). Day Designer (#2) also collaborated with Blue Sky on a planner you can get for $15.99.

    16. A gorgeous floral Anthropologie planner with tabs for just about everything: dates to remember, goals, contacts, notes, and a yearly plan — a neat place for everything your brain would otherwise forget!

    Anthropologie

    What it includes:

    –Monthly and weekly views with checkboxes, notes, contacts, and goals sections

    –Six-month goal pages (divided into career, finance, and personal)

    –2019 Plan overview

    Get it from Nordstrom or Anthropologie for $34.

    17. A non-dated, manageable-feeling LiveWhale planner that includes budget/expense and habit trackers, entire pages dedicated for "brain dumps" (brilliant), and daily goal countdowns.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Daily breakdowns of what you're thankful for, priorities, schedule, notes, and ~freedom space~ for reminders, affirmations, insights, etc.

    –Three colored bookmarks for easy access to your most-used subsections

    –100% recycled, acid-free 120 GSM paper

    –Inside folder, pen loop, soft-feel faux leather cover, and metal corners for protection

    Promising review: "My coworkers are obsessed with the Passion Planner, but personally I found it very overwhelming. I tried another brand that was a 'step down' from Passion Planner, but it was equally overwhelming and I found myself avoiding it because there were simply too many questions. I really like the size and simplicity of this one. Monthly calendar, budget, and weekly agendas are separate sections, which will take some getting used to, but already the budget section is bringing me so much clarity and peace of mind. Since this one is smaller, it fits in more of my purses, which was important to me because I'm downsizing from my 'big bag.' The quality is also terrific. The cover is super soft and the pages haven't bled with my heavy-hand and gel pen combo. Thanks, Live Whale!" —Steph Oh

    Get it from Amazon for $22.45 (available in two colors).

    18. A faux-leather Passion Planner to guide you every step of the way as you go about mapping out, working towards, and finally attaining your goals — because we could all use check-in points along the way.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –120 GSM (grams per sq. meter) paper, which is thick enough to handle pens without

    –Back pocket for stickers, receipts, pictures, cards, bandaids, etc.

    –Separate work and personal to-do lists

    –Access to free downloadable PDFs and inserts

    –For every planner purchased, they give one away!

    –Extremely detailed monthly and weekly layouts with spaces for this week's focus, today's focus, people to see, places to go, good things that happened, weekly quote and challenge, and a ~space of infinite possibility~

    –A step-by-step passion roadmap

    Promising review: "I absolutely fell in love with this planner. I LOVE how this planner organizes its time — it has the monthly calendar, plus the weekly/hourly calendar. For my line of work, it's absolutely perfect. I love that there's inspirational quotes throughout the planner, as well as little things you can add that will help motivate you and bring out your passion (hence, PASSION planner, haha). The planner seemed a little large at first, but it helps to have room to write what I need without worrying about cramming everything in. Quality is also great and durable. Overall, the best planner I have ever purchased." —The Slam

    Get it from Amazon for $30+ (available in four colors and with Sunday *or* Monday weekly start dates).

    19. A purse-sized Petite Mila planner that comes with a gorgeous copper pen because, as they say, the prettier the accessories, the more likely you'll be able to use the damn thing. And those satisfying tabs, though!

    –Weekly entries with eight lines each, plus smaller weekend entries

    –Tabbed monthly breakdowns with holidays and moon cycles noted

    –Super compact size: 7" x 5"

    –Extras like stickers, sticky notes, ultra fine tip marker pen, pocket folder

    –"Currently this month" sections where you write down what you're reading, watching, loving, celebrating, etc.

    –Room for notes or doodles all throughout

    Promising review: "I love this planner. I had always wanted to do a bullet journal but didn’t feel like doing all the layouts each week/month. This allows me to be creative, but still comes with a pre-designed layout. I love the stickers included too!" —Chardonae Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $27.60 (available in other designs, like cooking and sweat smile fitness).

    21. An adorable cacti-and-llama-adorned Papeterie Bleu planner with crystal clear monthly and weekly layouts that'll keep you on track — without any of the extras that might make planning ahead more stressful than it needs to be.

    Barnes & Noble
