For as long as I can remember, I’ve been OBSESSED with planners.

But, finding a good planner – one that actually checks off all your boxes – is not an easy task.

I mean, I’ve tried many, many, many planners.  Some were esssssspensive (#kathleenlights) and others were from Target, but either way, they didn’t get the job done.

It took me years of searching, planning, and failing to find the best planners for organization to take control of your life and increase productivity.

So, are you ready to make the best purchase you’ll make all year?

The best planners for organization, for moms, for college, for work, for students, for everybody!  The best planners to buy in 2019.

Some of the links in this post are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission.

Like I said, my planner expectations are exceedingly high.  I need a planner that has more than your basic monthly and weekly spread.  I also want:

  • financial planning
  • goal discovery
  • content creation
  • meal planning

I know, kind of a lot to ask of your planner, but what better way to stay organized and on track than to have all of that information in one handy place?  Hey! I’m a busy lady and I need to stay organized!

Thankfully for me – and you – I have not one, not two, but FIVE of the best planners for organization and productivity in 2020 that will meet all your daily planning needs!

The name says it all – this planner is for those of you who LOVE customizing your planner with doodles, highlighting, and stickers.

The pages in this planner are very open-ended and allow you to get your creative juices flowing.

Included in your Passion Planner is a

  • monthly spread with a to-do list
  • focus and projects area for both work and personal life
  • weekly spread with time slots
  • blank space to fill as you see fit

Have you ever seen a bullet journal?

This planner reminds me a lot of those with just a teeny bit more structure as it includes structured pages along with blank & grid pages to create to your heart’s desire.

The Passion Planner costs $22.75 and comes in multiple colors and two sizes.

Before I discovered my number one, the Day Designer was my baby – so cute and so functional!

It is obvious why it is one of the best planners for organization + productivity!

While not as customizable as the others I’ll mention, it still has a wide range of highly useful pages to help you stay organized and on track to crush those goals.

My favorite thing about this planner is the “Daily Planning Pages with scheduling from 5am to 9pm” – crazy good to stay accountable and actually DO your to-do list.

The Day Designer Planner will run you $59.00 – BUT – if you’re not ready to shell out that kind of cash for a planner right now, check out the printables section of their site for tons of awesome FREE planning printables!

***Exciting update!! Since using the Day Designer myself, they’ve come out with a new version of their planner called the A5 Leather Binder.  The A5 is $159.00 and is fully customizable.

The best planners for organization, for moms, for college, for work, for students, for everybody! The best planners to buy in 2019.

Although the Start Planner is not customizable, it has a great layout and equally awesome content.

The whole idea behind the design is to “crush those goals” and so obviously I was hooked from the beginning.

The Start Planner is a great option because it includes SO many additional pages that your normal, run-of-the-mill, planner would never include, such as

  • goal setting pages +  tracking pages
  • planning pages for holidays
  • project planning pages
  • planning pages for vacations
  • financial planning pages
  • the ability to track your health and food


Oh, and the inspirational quotes along the way to motivate you aren’t too shabby, either. 😉

This bad boy will cost you $60 and keep you organized and on track to crush your goals all year long.

Another great option among the best planners for organization + productivity is the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last few years, I’m sure you’ve heard of Erin Condren’s planners…and for good reason.

For $70, this planner is highly customizable, and, uhm, can we talk about how cute it is? 

From the cover to the coil binding, you are 100% in control. Features of this planner include:

  • your choice of cover
  • name personalization
  • choice of coil color
  • the freedom to choose your perfect layout
  • dashboard add-ons

My must-have add-on is the snap-in to-do list dashboard that can be used over and over again all year long.

If you just can’t get enough of these adorable designs, don’t forget to check out the accessories section of her site and fulfill all of your planner obsessed daydreams. *swoon*

The Plum Paper Planner is (by a long shot) the best planner for organization and productivity. With so many options, it is impossible to not come away with your perfect planner.

Plum Paper gives you complete control, allowing you to choose everything from

  • The size of your planner (A5, 7×9 & 8.5×11),
  • Your cover – design, monogram, date, quote, colors,
  • The Pages – budget planning, fitness planning, note pages, to-do lists, and more,
  • Your layout (weekly, hourly, etc.),
  • And your accessories.

My perfect Plum Paper Planner has the vertical M-A-E style layout, which has its weekly spread divided into morning, afternoon, and evening.

I love redesigning the cover something new every year to add to my collection of planners.

The best part, though, is choosing all of the inside details and extras to completely customize your planner in order to optimize your organization, productivity, and success. 

The section add-on’s that I include in my planner are the

  • budget,
  • meal,
  • fitness,
  • and blog planning sections

They also have add-on pages for home planning, baby planning, and wedding planning.

A Plum Paper Planner will cost you anywhere from $32.00 to $55.00 depending on your creation and is worth every. single. penny.

Seriously, I’ve never been more organized and productive in my life.

If you’ve come to this point in the post and are utterly baffled by the high price tag on most of these planners, I feel you.

Spending $50+ on a planner every single year is a lot of money!

That’s why we’ve worked hard to create a life planner for you that doesn’t break the bank.

And, the best part?

The Life Boss Planner is un-dated so you can use it year after year.

Yep, for one low cost of just $9, you can have an epic planner to organize your life, crush your goals, and track your success with year after year.

Included in the Life Boss Planner are 38 unique pages, such as:

  • Monthly Calendar
  • Weekly Planner
  • Daily Planner
  • Weekly + Daily Time Blocking Schedules
  • Mood Tracker
  • Habit Tracker
  • Gratitude Log
  • Quote Pages

And so much more!

These planner pages have helped me organize my to-do lists, accomplish my goals, and track my habits for success.  I couldn’t live without it!

So, are you ready to crush your goals with one of the best planners for organization and productivity mentioned on this list?

I am a very visual person and I LOVE lists.

So, naturally, I’m a lover of anything planner related.

The five best planners on this list are great planners for moms, for college, for work, for students, for daily planning and more.

Finally finding your perfect planner is a good feeling, eh?
