I love cracking open a brand new planner at the start of the year and imagining all the possibilities it holds. In this digital age, there’s still nothing like the satisfaction of writing down my plans, plotting out my days, and ticking items off a physical to-do list. I also appreciate planners that leave a little space to jot down significant moments, or things we’re grateful for at the end of the day (although some days need a separate journal for kilometric entries!).
What’s your planner personality? Do you like desk organizers where you can see your week at a glance, or a diary that gives you more space for each day? Do you prefer minimalist agendas for razor-sharp focus, or do you like it when they’re packed with inspiring art, quotes, and even productivity prompts? Do you simply need a regular notebook for bullet journaling? If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect planner to hold all your 2018 goals, here are some lovely ideas!
Packed to the brim with art and verses by local artists, the Woman, Create 365 Wonders Daily Creative Planner (P1,195) will inspire your own creative journey, and a portion of its proceeds will go toward empowering girls rescued by the Wipe A Tear organization.
