‘Tis the season for thinking about finally getting our sh*t together, and there’s no better way to get started than investing in a good personal planner for 2019. But with all the fancy options on the market, we thought it would be wise to ask a few of our favorite hustlers (i.e. people who already get stuff done) what their preferred planners were instead. From a lightweight one with sticky notes to a soulful style (complete with an astrology guide), here are seven planners for 2019 that people who get sh*t done (GSD) swear by.

1. The Spiral Planner 2019 by Sugar Paper Co., $26

“Since we’re always traveling, we prefer to keep it light with a digital calendar. Our iCloud calendar syncs up to our laptops, phones, and watches—it’s basically a lifesaver. Plus, keeping it digital avoids extra paper or clutter!” —Clea Shearer, Co-founder, The Home Edit

3. 2019 Get to Work Book by Elise Joy, $55

“I like this one because it includes a number of different types of pages that are actually useful, such as grid paper, sticky notes, to-do lists, and project break-down sheets, that will help organize anyone’s project or business needs. It’s pretty lightweight and small enough to fit into a carry-all or handbag, but large enough to work with.” —Dana Leavy-Detrick, Managing Director, Brooklyn Resume Studio
