Happy Friday, friends! If you’ve been around here for awhile, you already know I live for organization and can’t go without my planner. It’s basically an extension of my brain. This time of year, I always look forward to swapping my planner for a fresh one that signifies the new year ahead. There’s something about a blank book to fill, pages to write, and tasks to complete that really motivates me during the cold winter months and the start of a new year. I’m actually not a big fan of New Years Eve or resolutions, but I am a devout planner. In addition to my digital calendar, I find joy and a calm mind by putting pen to paper… especially in regards to my schedule, tasks, and journaling my thoughts. As always, I wanted to share a roundup of my favorite planners, if you fall into that same category or also have a type-a personality that brings immense joy when crossing things off your to-do list. Click through for my favorites and the one I’ve been using these past few years (we’re actually carrying it in the shop now!)…
I’ve been using this planner for years because I like the size, organization layout, and aesthetic. I appreciate that it has a monthly view, plenty of room for daily tasks, to-do lists you can fill in, goals, and easy tabs for flipping throughout. It’s simple, but it has everything I need! I’ll share some of my favorite 2023 planners with you below…

In addition to my coveted planner, you’ll never find me without a le pen (#9) in my pocket or bag. Those things are scattered all over my home office and bedside table for jotting quick notes. Another guilty pleasure this time of year? The Notes to Inspire candle (#6)… I buy one every December and wait to light it until January. It’s one of those candles that lives on my desktop and gets me through winter.
I added some new pads of paper to my repertoire as well… I’m usually that person who has sticky notes and loose papers all over the place (organized chaos!), but someone it’s a system that works for me. Anyone else? I was talking to my sister about this subject last week and apparently she does the same. We had a good laugh over FaceTime as our desks looked exactly the same.
However you like to keep organized or begin the year ahead on the right foot, I hope you’re feeling optimistic and excited about 2023 as the year comes to a close. I’m hopeful it will be a good one, but regardless- I’m feeling lighter knowing that I’ve got my ducks in a row. Cheers to a fun weekend ahead! We have an ugly Christmas sweater party to attend, and I’m off to chainstitch some text onto a vintage sweater. Sometimes I wonder why I create more work for myself, but I love those little creative side projects. Emmett thinks I’m crazy. Ha! Happy weekend!
