January is long gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t turn over a new leaf. Thanks to back-to-school season, August feels like a good month to get a fresh start—and grab a new planner. In fact, many planners start in August for that very reason, and you don’t even need to be heading back to class to buy one. If you’re ready to get organized on a clean slate, check out these adorable and functional 17-month options that will make scheduling everything from doctor’s appointments to happy hours a total breeze.

Riley 17-Month Planner, $26 from Anthropologie

Sometimes simplicity is all you need—especially when it comes to your schedule. This white and rose gold planner comes with fun additions (like two sheets of stickers!), but isn’t too flashy on the outside, making it a great option for a more formal work environment. The inspirational quote on the front cover doesn’t hurt, either.

Bloom daily planners are a super popular choice, thanks to their lower price, different designs, and extra features. Each planner, including this palm leaf option, comes with a ton of resources, including a personal mission statement prompt and yearly goal-setting page, weekly scheduling templates, address book pages, inspirational quotes, and monthly reflection questions.

Sit down and start planning your next tropical adventure (or, you know, your weekly workout schedule) with this island-inspired planner. But actually, you can totally work toward booking that vacay, because this planner even includes pages for budgeting.

We love ban.do’s extensive selection of planners and other office goods, including this peppy planner. If you love a case-bound design, stickers (it has three whole pages), and bright colors, this just might be the perfect planner for you.

This is the queen of all planners. The Day Designer isn’t just an agenda—it’s a full organizational system that encourages you to approach each day with intention. Each day includes a schedule, to-do list, and daily gratitude, and there are also dedicated pages for goal setting.

HOBBRY Marble Planner, $31.43 from Etsy

This luxe planner from Canadian shop HOBBRY stands out from the pack without bursting with color or pattern, if that’s not your thing. Although the outside is white, the inside pages are a soft blush color, and you can even customize it to include your initials for $8 extra.

This super affordable option features a cheery floral print that will make scheduling projects and appointments a little more fun. Since it’s only five by eight inches, it’s easy to toss in a purse or bag and take on the go.

Shop classic Kate Spade planners on Amazon and add some whimsy to your everyday routine ASAP. This hardcover planner is petite and features note pages, pockets, and yes, stickers (we’re sensing a theme here). If you don’t love the geometric pattern, it’s also available in a black and pink color-blocked option, as well as a floral design.

Prefer a larger writing surface? This classic Lilly Pulitzer planner is notebook-sized and, true to the brand, happens to be full of color. It’s available in three vibrant, preppy prints, and has a section for travel planning.
