There are many planners out there, it can be hard to the find the right one for you and your budget. This list of popular planners can help.
I’m a very forgetful person. I’m also not naturally organized. Having a planner is essential for me. I’ve tried so many throughout the years.
Over the last couple, I’ve really gotten into planning as not just a way to stay organized and remember things but also as a creative outlet. I love to use planner stickers and decorate my planner. I try to share my spreads over on Instagram if you want to see.
I’ve also gotten into watching YouTube planner reviews. That’s how I decided on a Happy Planner. I also have a PurpleTrail planner that I’m going to use a bit differently, I’ll share more about that soon.
There are so many planner options out there it can be a bit overwhelming. They also range in price a lot and it can be hard to find the right one for your budget.
Since I’ve spent so much time researching planners I wanted to share some of the best ones I’ve found and broken the list down into different prices so you can find one that fits your budget. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a good planner.

Bullet journaling is the cheapest option because all you really have to have is a pen and notebook. You can use one you already have on hand or buy a cute one very inexpensively. This is also a very popular option right now. It can be really simple or some people create amazing, fancy bullet journals. The most popular bullet journal is the Leuchtturm hardcover journal. It’s about $20.

Blue Sky makes some really cute planners that are sold at Target and very affordable. Their 5 x 8 inches hardcover planner is only $5.99 on Target.com. They have larger options that are more but still affordable.

Happy Planners come in three sizes mini, classic, and big. The mini starts at $13, classic starts at $17, and the big starts at $20 on Amazon. I use a classic size and really love it. It’s a disc-bound planner so you can move the pages and add your own. This was a big draw for me. They are also available at Michaels where you can usually get a 40% off coupon.
