The Best Planner to Organize Your Life

We’ve all been there: that sinking-stomach feeling when you receive a “where ARE you??” text from a friend and realize you forgot to meet them for drinks. Or, you show up at your kid’s soccer game only to remember it was your turn to bring snacks for the team. Not to mention the horror of missing a work meeting or the senselessness of having to pay a no-show fee at the doctor’s office or salon.

If you’re like me, you are running around trying to remember ALL OF THE THINGS. We are the schedule keepers – not only for ourselves, but for our families as well. And try as we might, we drop the ball from time to time.

No one can remember it all.

Overwhelmed with the excess of day-to-day tasks, we rarely have time to work on the big stuff. Maybe you’ve been trying to plan a vacation, renovate your home, pay off debt, or develop healthier eating and fitness habits. Maybe you want to spend more quality time with family and friends, at church, or volunteering in your community. Yet you constantly find yourself asking, ‘when will I ever find time for any of that when I can barely manage my daily to-do list?’

What if we had a tool? What if there was something we could use to not only help us organize the day-to-day things that are keeping us so busy, but that would also help us streamline our goals and priorities so that we can a) become more productive and b) free up more time for the important things?

I’m constantly on the lookout for tools that will help me get and, more importantly, stay organized. I’ve used lots of planners and agendas over the years, with varying degrees of success. Often, they work great for a month or two, then I lose interest or become overwhelmed and stop using them.

Then, a few years ago, I finally found it: the best planner that would help me organize my entire life and would actually help me simplify everything, rather than leave me feeling even more overwhelmed.

When I started using the Living Well Planner, I wasn’t 100% convinced that it would be the best planner for me. This is a true planner, though, because you don’t just jot down things you want to remember – it actually helps you PLAN your life. It helps you become INTENTIONAL about your time.

Why is Living Well the best planner?

The first thing that kind of sold me on the planner is that you receive an e-mail course instructing you how to use it. Ruth Soukup, the founder of Living Well Spending Less and creator of the planner (and if you don’t already read her blog, then what are you even doing with your life?) sends you e-mails teaching you to establish your priorities, dream big, and set intentional goals for the year. She then teaches you how to use the planner to work toward achieving those goals in addition to crushing it in every other area of your life.

Someone teaching you how to make big moves in your life, rather than simply checking off a to-do list?? I can’t even quantify how valuable that is.

The second thing that completely impressed me about this planner is that you get access to the Crush It Community, an exclusive Facebook group filled with kind, supportive, encouraging people who are all working toward organizing and rocking their entire lives, just like you.

I didn’t know how much I needed this community in my life, but now that I have it, I’m never letting it go.

Other perks you get with this product:

  • Monthly overview and in-depth daily pages
  • Budgeting pages
  • Planning pages for large or long-term projects
  • Designated meal planning space
  • Fully customizable – extra pages for notes, a document pocket, and you get to pick which month you start and which day you want your week to begin
  • High quality materials
  • Super cute design

If you’re like me, you’re wearing more hats than you can manage most days. Work stuff, family obligations, housekeeping, meal prep, health and body work, spiritual work, you’re trying to do it all. And, if you’re like me, a lot of days you feel like you’re falling short. The Living Well planner helps because everything is in ONE place.

You can keep track of your kids’ school stuff, your & your spouse’s work obligations, everyone’s social calendars, and still have space left for budget tracking and meal planning. Plus, you have even MORE space left over to plan and execute those big dreams and goals that you never seem to get to no matter how hard you try.

If you’ve been looking for the best planner to help you keep track of ALL THE THINGS and crush your long-term goals, I strongly encourage you to check it out here.

And the BEST thing about the Living Well Planner is that it’s on sale for the lowest price of the year right now! I’ve already ordered mine for next year because I know I’m not going to be able to get it any cheaper than this.

Oh and hey, if you’re particular about the pens you use, like I am, you might want to snatch up these Frixion erasable pens by Pilot. They’re awesome because, duh, erasable, and also they don’t bleed through the pages. You can also get them in assorted colors here and here
