I'm definitely a planner person.....having had one as long as I can remember. Todo lists, checkboxes, I can't get enough. I'm the person that endlessly spends time gazing at school supplies, sometimes not buying anything but hanging in the aisles for up to an hour. I'm insane, but I know that a lot of you do this too!!
One thing I always struggle with is my planner. For five years, I've used the moleskine 12 month weekly planner. But, I was getting bored. The organization is awesome, but it's bland colors left me unexcited and unwilling to pull it out when I needed it most!
I shopped around a LOT. Deciding how to organize your life for a year seems daunting to me sometimes, and of course I have serious FOMO about picking the wrong one. Here are the top contenders, in no particular order:

and omg. I LOVE IT. Here are some reasons why:
My planners never look PRETTY. Like, I don't have the patience or the time frankly to do a hand drawn bullet journal, or make fancy drawings, etc. I just need effective, organized, built in pretty that I don't have to work hard at. ;)
Here is what my end result looks like.
