I first released this The Everygirl Planner Review in my newsletter last week. However, I received so many questions about it and several people subscribed after it had already sent, so I wanted to post the information here, too.
First things first, I’m a paper planner devotee. I look forward every January to the crisp new sheets of a new year. So, I like to consider myself a bit of a planner expert. I’ve tried everything from cheap $7 planners to the Cadillac of planners, Erin Condren. And I was pumped when I found out The Everygirl was releasing a line of planners at Target.
Disclaimer: I’m sure many of you know I’m a contributor for The Everygirl but, no, that doesn’t mean I got a discount on the planner, ha.
Because I’m picky about my planners and they came out with several options, I decided to order three versions (returning two!) to figure out which one best suited my needs. Here’s what I got: 30-Day Challenge Planner, Career Planner, and the Daily/Monthly Planner.
The Everygirl Planner Review
All three have resources, lists, and notes to help you focus on the areas that you’re concentrating on in 2021 — these are the difference between the three planners that you have to decide works for you. Here’s the rundown.
If you like to focus on one area at a time, this is the planner for you. In January, you’ll look at finances. February is health and fitness. March is career. July is hobbies. August is style. You’ll cover each area of your life with the lists and questions available within this planner. I prefer a more 360-degree approach but this is great if you’re into batching.
I *almost* went with this planner because I liked the plastic cover and the 5″x8″ size. It has a lot of great features, one of my favorite being that each day has its own page following the monthly page. The daily page has a top 3, hourly breakdown, and a to-do list. I love when the day is split out from the to-do because it lets you look at deadlines v. meetings/events v. errands or chores. There’s also a water tracker, which is fun (though I know I wouldn’t use it). I love how this planner looks at your goals from a holistic sense with pages dedicated to setting goals across areas from career to finance to hobbies, home, and style. Plus, it has action items to help you achieve these goals.
This is the planner I went with! I love fabric exterior with the chic gold accents and the 7″x9″ size, which is just a bit bigger than standard but small enough to put in a purse. Since this is a year where I really want to dig in on career goals, I thought I’d get the most out of this one and its career checklists, to-do’s, and regular check-ins throughout the year. It has month layouts + week layouts with a today and a to-do list for each day. I’ve been putting more rote tasks in the to-do and bigger projects/meetings in the today section. So far, it’s working for me!
