Earlier this week, I mentioned on Twitter that I’d finally bought my new day-planner for 2020 and I was reminded that Fug Nation LOVES a school supply situation, and people want to talk about their planners! I personally¬†need a paper planner — the act of actually writing something down helps me remember it — and the one I have bought for like a dozen years now has loads of room in it for me to also make lists, or take notes. (Like, if Heather and I have a phone call, I take the call notes in my day planner.)

My own dream planner is this Smythson one, of course — although I LOVE my Moleskine — but a lot of you on Twitter recommended Passion Planner (which are very neat!) or a Day Designer (which are so cute). ALSO, FYI, Anthropologie has VERY cute planners.

There are MANY options, some others of which I have rounded up below, but as ever, we’re interested in hearing what you use and do. My college roommate had a classic Filofax that was SO VITAL to her existence that she just called it “The Book” and she carried it everywhere. We were caught in a tiny riot after UCLA won the NCAA basketball championship in 1995 and she literally carried it…during said riot. (Put that in your marketing materials, Filofax!])


FYI: GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all items were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking Coors Light and watching baseball.
