My Top 5 Best Planners For Moms
No matter how you keep track of your daily life, all moms need some sort of planner, bullet journal or other planning system. I have used a ton of them. There are ones I have loved and others I could really do without! Sometimes, you just have to try them out to find what you like. Let’s look at some of the best planners out there I have found that are great for moms!
This is the first year I have ever used an Erin Condren Planner and I have to say I’m loving it! I have the 2019 Deluxe Monthly Planner and it is fitting my needs pretty well. I used a bullet journal last year and I love that this planner has a pre-printed 2 page monthly spread with 5 pages of notes pages between each month along with notes pages in the back. This lets me still do bullet journaling in between the monthly pages and still have a pre-printed month to help save some time!
I am playing with using the Deluxe Monthly Planner as my personal and blog planner, but I’m leaning more toward just using it as my blogging planner for 2019. Keep reading to see what I want to use for my personal planner!
I used an Emily Ley planner a few years ago and I really did like it! If you prefer planners, it really is a minimalists dream for a planner. The daily spreads are numbered by hour with a bulleted to-do list and space for notes at the bottom.
It has a classic monthly spread with small calendars of the previous and following months for reference. The Emily Ley Simplified Planner is a colorful, but no frills planner with tabs. They’re a little pricey but you can find them on Amazon.
I am a big fan of The Happy Planner! I love the design with either horizontal or vertical weekly layouts. They come in multiple sizes and I really dig that you can move pages around and add pages easily with their disc system and hole punch.
Honestly, if my Erin Condren doesn’t pan out for me this year, I am seriously considering going back to a Happy Planner next for my blog planner I love it so much!
You guys… Ok, I haven’t physically tried this one yet, but I am seriously considering ordering one for my personal planning needs! Oh. my. goodness. If you are intimidated by bullet journaling, don’t know how to start, or don’t feel like you have the time to set one up and create all of your own spreads, this thing is AMAZING!
They have both a dated and undated version, but the monthly and weekly spreads are done for you but are totally customizable to your own liking! It’s dot grid and a total of 32 extra blank pages for your own planning needs. I have Amazon gift cards burning a hole in my account from Christmas and this just might be my next purchase!!!
Making Your Own Planner
Another option I have always loved is making my own planner. You can use an old binder, buy a small fancy leather binder, discs from Create 365 (The Happy Planner) or whatever else you want.
I’m a sucker for undated planners when I’m creating my own because I can customize them how I want to. I have an Undated Calendar that has:
Monthly Calendar spread on 2 pages
Weekly spreads on 1 or 2 pages (your choice)
Graph and Dot grid paper
The Undated Calendar is downloadable pdf files that you can print as many times as you want once downloaded to your computer. The pages can be printed in any order you would like and you can add extra graph or dot grid paper wherever you would like!
