Best Paper Planner: kitlife planner review
A couple weeks ago, I finally got around to posting about one of my most requested topics:
In 2017, I made the jump from a traditional paper planner to a Bullet Journal. It gave me the flexibility I just couldn't find in the standard Jan-December pre-printed formats. As a full-time author, I'm an entrepreneur, and there's no such thing as a "standard" day in the entreprenirual world. Some days are spent in my pajamas feverishly hunched over my laptop as I try to type a story as fast as it's spinning through my imagination.
Other days it's editor lunches. Speaking events. Photoshoots for headshots. Afternoons spent in high heels in hotel bars outlining my next book. Conferences. Signings. Writing retreats.
Some days I need hourly tracking, even half-hourly tracking, to stay on top of everything. Other days I don't need to pay attention to the clock, I need to focus on my word count output. Other days, I need a way of tracking my flight information, etc.
The bullet journal allows for a blank page every day, and I love that.
But ... many of you don't want/need that.
Many of you you just want to open up your planner to next month and jot down your kid's dentist appointment.
I hear you. Bullet Journaling is not for everyone.
For you those seeking a more traditional planner, I have a recommendation:
It reminds me a bit of a blend between the Erin Condren Life Planner and the Day Designer.
Like the Day Designer, it's a daily planner, with an individual page for each day (except for Saturday/Sunday, which share a page).
But it's similar to the Erin Condren planner in shape and branding (more square, pretty pastels, soft metallics).
So what what makes kitlife different? What's its point of kitlife's point of uniqueness?
The ladies behind the brand aren't JUST about keeping you organized, they want you to be healthy/happy too. There's a section for gratitude, and a section for wellness, so you can track water consumption, exercise, meditation, whatever you need to be at your best. If you're looking to get your "brain and body" right in 2018, this is an awesome option.
They also have quarterly check ins, and their newsletter has fabulous seasonal lifestyle tips.
Also it's just plain pretty.
Now, in full disclosure, they did give me a free planner for review, but truly guys, if I wasn't using the Bullet Journal, THIS would be my planner.
And speaking of bullet journaling ... the kitlife planner has the add-on options, one of which is a BuJuo add in. I'm just sayin'.
Best of all, I was just creeping on their website, and there's a sale going on thru Jan 1, 2018.
$10 OFF $50 | $20 OFF $75 | $30 OFF $100
And happy planning!
