How to Choose a Planner – Buying Guide

With many products available both in bookstores and online shops, it can be very confusing to choose one, especially if you don’t even what to look for to get the best planner. 


Checking the cover and the design first is already a given, but there are other points to look out for as well. We've listed them down here for you so keep on reading below!

Choose a Size Based on How Much You Want to Write

Choose a Size Based on How Much You Want to Write

Planners come in different sizes ー it could be as big as your notebooks or as small as a wallet that could fit your pocket. Some people bring their planners wherever they go so most people choose one that could easily fit their bag. 


When choosing the size of your planner, think about how much you want to write down in your planner and consider the size of your handwriting as well. If you want to be able to put everything in detail, doodle, and write down everything in between, a bigger planner would be the appropriate choice. 


Now, if you simply just want to write the time and a couple of keywords for your schedule, then a compact-sized one will do. However, always double-check the size or the dimensions of the planner as getting one that's too small will make it difficult to write in. 

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly Layout - Which Do You Prefer?

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly Layout - Which Do You Prefer?
There are 4 planner layouts to choose from - daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. Some will have only have one layout including a calendar for the year while others may have a combination of 2 layouts and a calendar.

The daily layout is best for those who like to list everything down in detail. There are some daily planners with time printed on it, which is great for organization, increasing productivity, and improving time management. 


Depending on the size or dimension of the planner, weekly and yearly planners may or may not have enough space for you to write down a lot. Often times, these have a table-like layout

Select Between a Planner with a Fixed Date or an Open Date One

Select Between a Planner with a Fixed Date or an Open Date One

Contrary to what is always available in most bookstores, not all planners have dates printed on it. Clearly, those with a fixed year or date can only be used for a certain period of time. After that, it's either you toss it, keep it if it has private and important information, or use some blank pages left as scratch paper. 


Open date or undated ones, on the other hand, gives you more flexibility. It is customizable since you will have to write down the date yourself. It gives you freedom when to start or stop using it, so it's okay if you buy or start using one in the middle of the year. 

Think About Your Lifestyle and Usage

Think About Your Lifestyle and Usage

There are planners that can be customized with pages that can be re-arranged or refilled. There are also some that are more than just for recording schedules, offering goal-tracking, and different activities that help you improve focus and boost creativity. 


Additionally, there are also new planners now, called traveler's planner or traveler's notebook, that have compartments where you can keep pictures, documents, cards, and other things. We highly recommend getting one that can be customized and one that has features that can help achieve your short or long-term goals
