By all accounts, 2022 is gearing up to be a stressful ride. Keep yourself calm and ready with these planners to ensure yourself an easy time.
The Appointed Compact Task Planner
Washington DC-based and proudly American-made, planners and notebooks from The Appointed are some of the very best. The Compact Task Planner is a smaller version (6.5” × 8.5”) of their famed Task Planner.
On the left-hand side is a dated section for appointments and events, while the right-hand blocks out your weekly priorities, tasks, and any extra notes needed.
The paper is smooth to the touch and feels great to write on, and most importantly is made with 2/3 renewable energy, and is acid and chlorine-free. Each planner is wrapped in water-resistant cotton book cloth that complies with the latest EPA standards and is biodegradable, odor-free, and PH natural.

The Everyday Planner
The Everyday brand has expanded to bags, fragrances, and dinnerware, but the bedrock of the line remains the Everyday Classic Planner. The aim of this planner is to maximize user productivity. The undated pages make it a flexible choice if you need to start in any month.
Goals are simplified into doable tasks with the help of aids like a task tracker, and one dedicated to monthly costs so you can keep track of your spending. This yearly essential now comes in nine different colors.

Smythson Soho Diary in Panama Leather
Nothing beats Smythson when it comes to luxury planners. The Soho Agenda is a classic choice, with a week-to-view layout with a notes page for easy organization. The pages are in pale blue Featherweight paper with gilt edges.
The Panama Leather is a brand icon, its cross-grain texture coming from the Panama diary and designed by Frank Smythson in 1908. Both lightweight and hard-wearing, your plans are beautifully and safely kept.

MoteMote Task Manager
The MoteMote 10-Minute Planner is the most popular planner for students in South Korea. The pages are used for students to block their time in ten-minute increments of study time for each task, which is especially hopeful for studying for exams. The Task Manager Planner is a more traditional planner that can transition from school to the workplace.
There’s a section for goals and tasks to keep up on projects and objectives. The monthly view and weekly view spreads make looking ahead easy, not stressful. The planners come in bright, punchy colors – I’m partial to this pretty rose quartz shade, which makes for a chic edition on your desk or your handbag.
