There are so many planners out there how do you pick? Check out these are some of the top planners out there that are perfect for homemakers.
For years I went without a planner. I would just write things on a calendar, use my phone, or just scrap pieces of paper. I forgot things all the time and it was not very organized.
I used a Day-Timer planner for awhile and that was fine. I made my own planner for years and that worked well but was a fair amount of work. Then a few years ago all of these fancy planners started popping up.
Honestly what really made me want to get on the planner wagon was planner stickers. I’ve always loved stickers and arts and crafts so this really appealed to me. I know to some that seems a bit silly but being creative with planning keeps me on track because I enjoy it and something about a colorful page makes more sense to me.
Now there are so many planners out there. From very basic ones to bright and cheery ones packed with extras. There is also a huge price range. Some planners can get pretty pricey but you can still find some really good ones for reasonable prices.
I find using a planner essential now. Like most homemakers, I’m juggling many different responsibilities and trying to keep track of all of that in my head or just on a piece of paper would be challenging.
Before picking the planner I have used for a few years I did a lot of research and I continue to check out new planners. I want to share what I’ve found in the planner world to help you pick out the best planner for you.
Best Planners for Homemakers
These planners aren’t just for homemakers but they can easily be used by homemakers to make life a bit more organized. We all have so much going on it can be hard to keep track, these planners can help!
This is my personal favorite. I chose it because I wanted to be able to add pages to my planner. It’s really nice to be able to customize your planner so much. You can remove pages you won’t use, add your own, and they offer many different expansion packs to really make the planner your own. These planners and accessories are available at a lot of craft stores as well. I always get mine at Michaels using one of their great coupons, be sure you are enrolled in their reward program as well.
Price: $19.99- $34.99
This planner has become extremely popular and is setting a lot of the trends in the planner world. There are a few layout options available for these planners, the covers are customizable, and there are a couple of size options now. These are a bit on the pricey side but they are a big fan favorite.
I strongly considered this planner when picking mine. It was designed by a fellow blogger that I have followed for years, Ruth Soukup of Living Well Spending Less. It’s colorful and fun and great if you are into goal setting. It’s also got built in budget planning.
This is another planner with a lot of focus on goal setting. They call it a 24/7 life coach. It’s a cleaner looking planner and is in simple black and white. If you are into the more simple look you can keep it like that or add colorful stickers to make it your own. Many of the planners donate to causes so that can be an added bonus.
These are another planner on the pricey side, especially if you want leather. They are beautiful though. Again a more simple style but there are beautiful details. One thing that is unique about this planner that I really like is the birthday and thank you note tracker section.
If you are looking for a budget friendly option check out Blue Sky. They have some really pretty options. You can also find them at some Targets for an amazing price. This may be a good option if you are just starting to dip your toes into the planner world.
These planners are highly customizable. You pick your cover, layout, what month it starts on, you can add sections like home, blogging, budgeting, meal planning, fitness, and so much more. It can get expensive but it’s really cool to be able to design the planner to fit your needs perfectly. They also have ready to ship options that are very affordable.
I love the covers on these planners, they are so pretty. You will find goal setting worksheets, daily inspirational quotes, gold foiled monthly tabs and other great features. They also have daily planning pages which isn’t as common in planners.
This is another customizable planner with tons of options. They even have a Progress Planner that they call a cross between a goal planner and a workbook. It’s backed by science to help you with goal setting, habit formation, and time management. It’s a really interesting option.
This was on my short list when picking a planner. I really liked the style, they are beautiful planners. I also liked that they had yearly and monthly goal tracking sheets and extra sections like travel and gifts. They are also a hard cover planner so if you like to take your planner with you this is a good durable option.
