A daily planner is an indispensable part of my day. I use them to keep track of things I need to do on any given day. I also use them to record anything memorable that happens. The month at a glance pages are great for scheduling and keeping track of things like monthly payments. In addition to using them for scheduling and planning you could use them as a daily journal, a comprehensive daily journal planner.
I’ve been using daily planners, or day to a page planners for years. I do still use digital calendars, but there is something very satisfying about taking a pen to a page. Here we’ve gathered some of our favorite planners for 2022.
I’ve used these for years. These are made with archival paper and quality construction. They are made to last and look good doing it. The paper is a great weight, and does not bleed through. The soft leather cover comes in a different assortment of colors every year. They look great lined up on a bookshelf. This is one of the best luxury leather planners.
The go to for every office I’ve worked in. The large format shows an entire week spread across 2 pages. The wire binding lets this book lay flat regardless of what page it is open to. Scheduling appointments is easy with this format. These are great but don’t hold up really well as an archive of past years.
I really love the mini binder size, it’s the size of a sheet of paper folder in half (5 1/2 inches by 8 inches). This is what I use as my planner for my business. It’s large enough to write in everything that I need, yet small enough to easily fit on my desk.
This also comes in a standard binder size of 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches.
I’ve also used the Moleskine daily planner for a few years. I like the hardcover version, but you may prefer the softcover. This is another well made archival quality planner. Moleskine’s famous quality is evident in this planner. This comes in several different color options, which change yearly. This is thicker than most journals / planners and I found myself leaving this at my desk instead of throwing in my bag at the end of the day. They also make a pocket sized version which is much more portable, but the smaller size limits how much you can write in each daily page.
This is the daily planner that I currently use for my personal things. The A6 size is perfect. With the cover it’s approximately 6 1/2 inches high by about 4 1/2 inches wide. The paper is quite thin, but it is made with the famous Tomoe River paper. The thin paper is remarkably bleed proof. I use gel pens with mine and each page is totally legible. These are refillable, but every year they release new colors of covers. Covers are available in a wide variety of plain and limited edition designer motifs, along with luxury leather covers. The covers have multiple pockets and pen loops so you can carry cards, pens, cash, and other items with you. Please note this is the English language planner, the larger A5 size is only available in Japanese.
