Let's Start Planning

With school starting so soon, I have been looking at planners for the 2016-2017 school year. When my son started Kindergarten last year, I bought my first academic planner to go along with the school year and I loved it!

Today I'm highlighting some academic planners that are cute, functional and affordable!

Bloom Daily Planner - Size: 7.5" x 9"

This planner is not only pretty but looks pretty functional too.  It has the layout I love, a full monthly calendar then a weekly calendar.


I'm not sure I would use the monthly vision pages, but who knows, maybe?

DaySpring Planner -  Size = 8" x 9". This planer not only has a monthly and weekly calendar, but 18 colorful laminated tab dividers, notes, lined, grid, blank and coloring pages.  

The Reminder Binder - Size = 6.5" x 8"

This binder is so colorful it just screams fun! Plus it comes with over 300 stickers to help make planning more fun. It has a monthly view as well as weekly and yearly views.

2016-2017 17-Month Reminder Binder® Planner Calendar Weekly & Monthly Views, Lists, Contact Pages, Two Pockets, 312 Planner Stickers, Back to School, Teacher Gift, Scheduling Appointments & Events

Kate Spade New York Planner - Size = 6" x 7 3/4"

This is the planner I bought last year and I loved it! It's so pretty, has everything I needed and just worked so well.

It has a notes section, pockets and laminated tabs and shows a monthly view as well as weekly.

A planner wouldn't work without some awesome pens! I just ordered these and they are now my favorite! I assign each family member a color pen and that makes it much easier to spot who has what going on and when.

I know some people spend way more on pens, but to me they are just that and these work great.

So, which planner is your favorite? I think I might change it up this year and order the Bloom Daily Planner, it's just so pretty!

  1. We were totally on the same wavelength for our posts today. Planners and pens. :)

  2. Girl, I haven't heard of any of these planners besides the Kate Spade and now you're making me want to get something different! I need to order my Erin Condren for next year, but I think I'll check each of these out first!

  3. Such cute planners! That reminder binder looks like a great idea, love the catchy name!

    1. Yes they are so so cute!! And I like the name of that one too!

  4. I love planners & pens! The dollar spot at Target actually had some great gel pens, too! Do you home school?
