2023 Planners: Compare the Formats To Find Your Perfect Fit

Whether you’re diving into the world of paper planners for the first time or returning to a trusted Appointed planner you can’t live without, it pays to be thoughtful about your choice. After all, this is a tool you’ll use every single day for the entire year. Aside from our phones and devices, there aren’t many items that have the same impact on our time and attention. Even your cherished notebook or journal may be used up in a few months time. Your planner, however, is with you for the long haul.

That is why we want to help you find a format that makes a tangible difference in your everyday life. Maybe you’re seeking out a new planner to increase your productivity during a new school semester or at the office. Maybe you’re looking to start a new routine or simplify your to-do list. Whatever your reasons, we have a planner format for you.

So how do you make your pick? We’ve put together a quick comparison of each of our planner formats to help you take the guesswork out of the decision. Read on as we compare the details of our fan-favorite 2023 formats, including a few new designs sure to get you excited for the year of planning to come.

Intentionally Designed

Appointed planners are designed to be turn-key, meaning there is just enough structure to plug in schedules, priorities, and to-do lists instantly, with flexibility to make it your own thanks to our signature sleek, minimal design.

Take our best-selling Year Task Planner: designed to be the perfect fit for anyone with project-focused work (think professionals and designers). A flexible lined scheduling section allows you to fill in meetings and the projects focus for each day, while the opposite page provides a structured section of to-dos so nothing gets missed or forgotten. Newly released last year, the Weekly Task Planner features an innovative top-bound wire-o binding inspired by left-handers. With an hourly breakdown of each day, this planner suits those that need a bit more structure, like students or those with back-to-back meetings. Both of these bestselling planners have a productivity focus, but may be selected by people with different goals and work styles.

 

More to Explore

There’s so much more to explore at appointed.co. Each product page in our 2023 Planner Collection features meticulous details about each and every planner, from paper weights to bonus features like conversion charts and year overview spreads. Plus, we now offer an interactive view on each planner page, allowing you to explore the details and discover what makes our planners the best choice for productivity and organization.

Still unsure? Take our less than five minute Planner Quiz. We’ll ask you questions about your work style, organization preferences, and pair you with your perfect fit.

Whether you’re trying out a new planner this year or returning to a tried-and-true favorite, we hope your 2023 is made a little more manageable with the help of our favorite tool. Here’s to the fresh start feeling that comes with a fresh new planner. Happy planning!
