How To Find The Best Agenda For You

A good agenda is hard to come by. Everyone has their own little requests when it comes to what they want in a planner. Some people love tabs and monthly views between every section, others like a spiral binding or an elastic closure to hold everything together. There are those who like the sleek and professional look while others prefer cute and fun designs. For almost every different quirk and request there's a brand out there that caters to your very needs but finding the right one can be more of a fuss than its worth. So here are the little details to consider when buying a planner and the brand that fits your requests.

First things first determine your size preference. Do you like a planner about the size of a standard letter or do you prefer a more compact option that you can carry around in your purse for day-to-day activities. Lilly Pulitzer offers a range of sizes in her signature bright colored prints. If you love Lilly patterns and want to be able to choose from a variety of size options then a Lilly Pulitzer agenda is the way to go.

Next you need to know how you would like the design to be. Kate Spade releases new agendas every year that have a spiral binding with a hardback covering for a more professional feel. The inside script and layout is minimalistic and features simple monthly and weekly views. Even if you prefer a sleek look but like a little fun and color the 2015 Kate Spade agenda covers come in black and white stripes, green ikat, gold foil polka dots, and a watercolor bookshelf. Plus they all have an elastic band closer so all of the papers and notes you put in the front cover won't slide out when you're in a rush leaving the office or going to class.

Lastly you have to decide which little details you'd like your agenda to have. Some planners feature super cute monthly illustrations, funky sticker pages, and special holidays marked throughout the year so choosing what you want most can be difficult. For an overall fun planner Ban.do agendas feature all of the above as well as fun little words of encouragement (like "you are better than unicorns and sparkles combined"), weekend plan suggestions (like dying your hair pink or creating an inspiration board), and an inside accordion pocket to keep all of your little notes and things. To top it all off, they are just the right size to fit into your purse or bag without being swallowed by all of the things inside or taking up too much space.

So which agenda is perfect for you? Let me know in the comments section which one's your favorite and what you look for in a planner. This year I went for the Ban.do agenda with the "I Am Very Busy" cover and I love it. I seriously can't wait for August 1st!
