  • The Undated

    If you have a tendency to procrastinate, an undated planner is the perfect place to start. That way, if you don't get around to using it until February, or if you skip a few weeks at a time, you won't feel as though you wasted a month's worth of glossy pages.

  • The Super Customizable

    For those with particular planner prerequisites, customizable books are the way to go. Both Erin Condren and Plum Paper allow customers to not only personalize their covers with monograms and photos, but they also have options for page design (vertical or horizontal weekly layouts; options for students, teachers or dieters), custom stickers and plenty of add-ons, including extra lined paper, graph paper or to-do lists.

  • The Indestructible

    Clumsy planner users might consider a leather folio (with extra pockets!) to keep their notebooks protected.

  • Don't Worry, Be Happy

    Everyone can use a little encouragement, and these planners help to do that on the daily. Both The Happiness Planner and the Live Your Truth Everyday Planner offer inspirational quotes as well as goal-setting guides to help you achieve whatever it is your working towards. Not to mention, they're both very Instagrammable.

  • Budget-Friendly

    If your New Year's resolution list includes both "spend less money" and "get organized," then one of these under $30 planners is definitely for you.
