My Top 3 Planner Picks For 2019.

I have been racking my brain on which planners to use for 2019. Finally, I decided to use my Erin Condren Vertical Neutral Layout for my personal / home planner and my Erin Condren Horizontal Neural Planner for my blog and channel. Lastly, my Emily Ley Daily Simplified Planner for prep planning.

After 4 years I feel as if I’m finally getting more organized with my planners. Most importantly, I know what works and does not work. However, if you are completely new to the world of paper planning please don’t lose hope. You will eventually figure out for yourself through maybe even years of trial and error, we all have been there at one time or another and we were all new once.


Here are the 3 planners I am personally using for 2019. I believe these planners, if they work for you can bring you closer to Planner peace.

  1. Erin Condren Life Planner Vertical Neutral Layout.

Being I finally planned one whole year in my Erin Condren Vertical Neutal I know that Planner is the closest thing I will get to Planner peace. The thing I love about this neutral option vs the colorful is the weekly layout is a bit different. In the classic Life Planner the colorful layout has header boxes and three vertical columns. Now the neutral has dotted vertical boxes with no header boxes, that’s the main reason I go with neutral. 

With this planner I will use it for my everyday planning such as cleaning, kids activities and appointments. Also, I will be decorating this planner like I usually do with all my other life planners.

2. Erin Condren Horizontal Neutral Layout.

Ok so being completely honest here, I don’t have the slightest clue why I chose the horizontal layout for 2019 at the Erin Condren Flagship store while attending Go Wild in Austin TX. I’ve never been a horizontal girl all though the horizontal layout is the first Erin Condren I’ve ever used 4-5 years back. I knew I had to incorporate it somehow being it’s sort of special since it was purchased in Austin during Go Wild.

I decided to use this particular planner for my blog and channel planner. I may not be able to personally plan in the Erin Condren Horizontal Layout but feel I could utilize this perfectly for my blog and channel.

3. The Daily Simplified Planner.

I am in love with the 2019 Daily Simplified Planner by Emily Ley. The past two years I went with her weekly version, though always end up using my Erin Condren Life Planner. So this year at launch I decided to go with the daily layout vs the weekly layout.

I will be using the 2019 Daily Simplified Planner as a pre plan / brain dump. The Simplified Planner is the perfect addition to your weekly planner, especially if you love to write out your To do lists before planning in a weekly planner. The other thing I love about this planner is it’s size, it’s not quite as big as the classic EC but not too small either. It’s perfect to put in your purse or for everyday use.

Wrapping this post up, those are the three planners I will be using for 2019. My goal for this new year is to be more consistent with my planning and home cleaning routines. But mostly with my blog and channel. I hope this post has maybe given you some inspiration on the different planners and how they work.
