I have done my research though! And today, I bring you my 2016 Planner Round up:
No. 1: The Happiness Planner
Vivianna Does Makeup has chosen this planner for her 2016 planner, and posted about it here. When I saw it, I gave it a look and was pleasantly surprised. Not only is this planner a good size (9x6) but it's also got a lot in it. Some of my favorite features are the two-page monthly spread, a weekly planner, a place to list your goals, bucket list, and a little reflection section at the end of every month. The whole goal of this planner is to help you live a happier life, which is a new and interesting idea I might be ready to jump on board with.
No. 2: The Simplified Planner by Emily Ley
This is the planner that Katie from KTCupofTea has been raving about for the last 6-ish months. She did a great overall review about this planner here. This is definitely a simplified version of a planner. It comes with a large weekly spread, as well as a monthly spread, weekend spots, and a pocket for keepsakes. This seems like a great planner if you want a workhorse of a planner versus a more "all-inclusive" type.
No. 3: To Do List Planner
The final planner of my round up is a good mix of the previous two. This was doesn't have as many different aspects as The Happiness Planner but isn't as slimmed down as The Simplified Planner. The To Do List Planner is like the Goldilocks of planners...it's got a good amount of space for the daily portions, a nice monthly portion, and still manages to have some space for goal-setting and lists.
I'm pretty much sold on The Happiness Planner. I love the idea of a planner offering a way to live a fuller, happier life. Do you have a specific planner you use every year? I'd love to know which one is your favorite.
