How you can use the Day Designer to get organized! So cute!

It's time to look at the Day Designer! I don't remember where I first heard about the Day Designer, but I do know that a friend and I had a conversation about this one and I was told that I HAD to check out the weekend pages on the Day Designer (you can see those below), so I asked the very nice people at Whitney English's Day Designer company for one of their Flagship Planners to review. I've REALLY enjoyed using this planner! Let's get started: 

The Day Designer - gorgeous planner with some cool features! Great for organizing home and work life!
The Day Designer Cover – there are other cute designs and options available.

The inside cover of the Day Designer – I love the mint green color of the inside pocket and gold monthly tabs!

Goals – unfortunately, the writing on these pages is fairly light and I had a hard time getting a clear photo of the goal planning pages, but these are excellent! One side, you have goals for 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months, with tabs for “Help Yourself”, “Everyone Else”, “Attitude and Academics”, “Resources & Finance”, and “Trade, Career, Biz.” These are, by far, the best goal-setting sheets I've seen in a personal daily planner. The next page helps you break those goals down into manageable pieces. Love it!

Monthly Spread – I love the This Month: section on the left, the gold colors, and the open, clean layout.

Daily – Here's a close-up look of the Daily Pages. There is just one day per page (except for the weekend, but you'll see more about that below). The color of the planner lines was just difficult for my camera to pick up for some reason, sorry, but you can get the general idea. At the top, you have the date, an inspirational quote, and then the planning falls into the following boxes: “Today's Top Three:”, “Due:”, “Dinner:”, “Dollars:”, and “Don't Forget.” Below that you have “Today:” with hourly time slots, and next to that is “To-Do:” – which is so incredibly useful! At the bottom is a section for notes and daily gratitude. I love the checkboxes here!

The weekend – I LOVE these weekend pages! Saturday and Sunday are combined onto one page, and at the bottom (this is one of my favorite features of the Day Designer) they have a spot for each day of Next Week so you can have a week-at-a-glance. 

 

Who should use this planner: 

I think this planner will work for just about anyone! It's great for stay-at-home moms, business professionals, homeschoolers, and people with kids in activities. Don't let the hourly time slots scare you – if you're not into hourly scheduling, just time block sections to budget your time. 

Pros:

  • Goal-planning worksheets are very useful for anyone
  • Gold tabs and coil are fun and really cute
  • Daily boxes are organized well and easy to use
  • Checkboxes! I seriously love the checkboxes!
  • High quality paper
  • The weekly overview on the weekend pages really makes this planner amazing for me

Cons:

  • No customization (I prefer this style of harder cover over Erin Condren's customized but laminated cover, so that's not a problem for me)
  • The pages are a bit thinner. I can use most of my pens on them but not my Stabilos
  • Not many note pages

Cost: $59

How I'm using this planner: 

The Day Designer has been perfect for planning my days. At the beginning of the week, I fill in our calendar obligations, and I divide the To-Do section on the right into two sections: one for work, and one for cleaning/homemaking tasks. I love the dinner space at the top of the page, which makes it easy to fill in my meals when I meal plan. I also add appointments for the following week to the week-at-a-glance on the weekend pages as I make them.
