Make Lists, Get Organized and Journal Your Way Through the Year With These Great Planners

I am a list lover. (Those of you who remember the old BlogHer List Lovers group will not be surprised.) I make lists every day. Sometimes multiple times a day. I make them on paper. I make them in Evernote. I make them in my head. I am all lists, all of the time.

I'm an art journaler. Or I would be if I didn't have three dogs who eat all of the things and cause all of the things to become piled on my art desk. Oh who am I kidding -- I stopped art journaling before the dogs came into my life. BlogHer Conference season began and then my grandson, JMP, arrived and the biggest issue was that I had decided that I wanted to combine my list making with my art journaling and once I realized that's what I wanted to do, that was all I wanted to do. Which would have been great except that I couldn't find a method of combining the two that made sense for me. I decided what I needed was a Filofax.

I blame Lauren Graham for this. Right about the time I had the revelation about list+art journal = perfect world I was listening to Someday, Someday Maybe on audio and the Filofax played a prominent role in that story. A Filofax or some other type of planner was what I needed.

I asked for a Filofax for my birthday -- and got a puppy who eats everything, instead.

I asked for a Filofax for Christmas and got one. In fact, I got two -- and then ended up with a third! I've very much enjoyed my Filofaxes, this year and am sticking with them for next year, (though I've moved to a modified bullet journaling style for one of them.)

I made the decision to stick with my Filofaxes after doing a whole year worth of research and watching the #planneraddicts in the social media world very closely. Here are some great planners for you to consider as you think about organizing, planning, and journaling in the new year.
