I posted last year about my Erin Condren Life Planner that I used for 2015, but this year a new planner caught my eye and I had to try it out. Meet the Design Love Co.’s “Design Love Planner.”
IMO, it’s much better than the EC planner I used last year and will probably be the reason I take over the world this year, because ORGANIZATION.
I posted this pic on Instagram as soon as I got it, tweeted my obsession over the pages, and Snapchatted a full mini-preview of the inside. (Add me on Snap: QueenSCB)
It’s such a perfect, clean chic. The planner’s structure is minimal yet has all these thoughtful details included in a way that makes it so useful AND easy/functional to use. I’m obsessed.
The double daily pages for each week make a huge difference for someone with a schedule like mine – it makes it easy to keep track of my whole life. The left is a photo of the “task-based schedule” and the right is the “time-based schedule,” which lets you keep track of all your to-do’s and meetings/appointments so you can have a complete overview of your day/week/LIFE. I’m telling you, this planner has got it figured out.
This has been my favorite feature of the planner so far because I can add my to do’s and then work around my meetings or appointments or errands, and understand how/where I’m spending my time all day without feeling like a slave to my schedule.
There’s also a page for monthly goals with empowering quotes, expense tracking, a “monthly” to-do list and list index (!!!) so you can stay on top of absolutely anything and everything. There are even tear out to-do lists in the back: one for packing, recipes, a blog post, and more. If you’re an organizational psycho like me – this planner will give you actual inner peace. Peace of mind and a flow for your life. Namaste.
It also comes with a black and white striped cover, which is cute but too obnoxious for me. I like the cool blue and peaceful marble to offset the chaos of all the shit I have to do. All the info here: Design Love 2016 Planner
Sometimes I wish I could just use an app but I don’t trust technology enough to not keep a hard copy… Plus, I get super satisfied crossing things off a list so seeing them just be erased in an app is far less gratifying (<<< motivating for my productivity). Do you use a planner? If not, how else do you keep track of your life?

omg this planner is exactly what I didn’t know I needed!!
IT SAVES MY LIFE. Especially in the last few weeks when I’ve had so much going on, the double to do/schedule weekly pages are so clutch. Have you gotten it yet?! xx
Yes I have! Yeah that’s definitely my favorite part!! Also love all the added things like monthly budgeting and goals! Thanks for the recommendation :) I’m already obsessed haha!
You’re going to get so much use out of it! I love the goals – it’s where I write the stuff I know I need to get done but am dreading doing lol and somehow that makes it way more motivating/satisfying. ✔️✔️ x
