No Time for Bullet Journaling? Inspiring Daily Planners to Try Instead
It’s no secret we’re fans of bullet journaling here, but we totally get that it’s not for everyone. Bullet journaling requires some time upfront to get it all set up and a dash of creativity to make it look Instagram-worthy. If you’re more of a ready-to-write type of person when it comes to your daily planner, then we suggest checking out our list of chic and cool planners and printables below. Each one has all the prep work already covered so there’s no need to bust out a ruler and spend hours color-coding.
Day Designer ($59)
Specifically designed with girlbosses in mind, the daily layout of the Day Designer is what makes it unique. There’s room to jot down your schedule, your mile-long to do list, notes, what you’re grateful for, and even what you’re planning to eat for dinner.
XO Planner ($50)
The front of the XO Planner comes equipped with tons of Bujo-inspired pages to write down goals, personal commandments, a bucket list, and more. Meanwhile, the daily pages are pre-structured in a way that will help you level up your life—think boxes for health, gratitude, brilliant ideas, and more.
The Desire Map Planner ($44)
The premise of this planner is simple: make sure your to-dos are aligned with how you want to feel. The planner goes deep into helping you design your dream life with lots of room for intentions, desires, and of course, your to-do list.
Ashley Shelly Planner ($49.95)
This chic planner already has all the sections you’d want in a bullet journal such as an inspiration board, contacts, meal ideas, habits, yearly goals, and more.
If paper just isn’t your thing, that’s cool too. Snag a digital file of this pre-designed daily page and you’ll be all set for tracking your tasks, purchases, events, ideas, meals, exercise, and even your H20 consumption—all in one digital page, using an app like Paper by FiftyThree which lets you scribble on the digital page.
If you’re serious about setting and achieving goals this year, turn to Cultivate What Matters’ PowerSheets workbook which is chock-full of worksheets to help make your dreams a reality. You don’t even need to spend hours decorating. The pages are already colorful and Instagram-ready.
