I love being organized, and yet summertime at our house is delightfully UNorganized. That's fun for exactly the amount of weeks it takes to reach August and then I hit a crazy wall and want everything back in its scheduled place. Thankfully, planner designers seem to know this about us (or they realize that many people coincide their planning brains with the start of the calendar school year, whatever), and some of the best planners have an August start.
Enter the Day Designer by Whitney English, the planner I've been eyeing for ages. I typically use a weekly moleskine, but lately I've been yearning for more structure to my days, and this is the first thing I ordered. There are several brands of popular planners out there, but Day Designer is my pick of those by far. First of all, I love the style. Next I love the layout. (Plus, I adore Whitney English.)
Genius: tabs for the 3 most important things to do each day, dinner, and a gratitude box (not pictured, it's at the bottom). I need this spelled out for me daily even more than I need structured time slots. I also really like the month view AND the daily view, with tabs for each month. That part may be pretty standard, but I've been living without it.
Cons: It's too big to be portable (for me). If you mainly use a planner at your desk OR carry a larger tote, this shouldn't be a problem. But I've been carrying a smaller bag lately, and this wouldn't fit.
