Growing up, I remember being very happy whenever I’d be gifted with an old-school, floral-printed tiny diary with a lock — that I didn’t use at all.

My love for fancy notebooks extended into my teenage and young adult years when I realized how determined I was to finish collecting 18 stickers for a Starbucks planner and start another booklet just to get a different version of it. Unfortunately, I’ve been unsuccesful.

People often assume that Generation Z solely rely on technology on a daily basis. While true for some, a lot of us still prefer traditional writing on a planner or the calendar app on the phone.

It’s not about the medium, but about how you’ll be able to recall or organize your plans or activities.

In my case, I use both my planner and my calendar app because I find that my forgetful brain manages to recall plans I made prior to listing them down on both mediums.

The accessibility is also a plus — when you don’t have your planner near you, you turn to your calendar app, vice-versa.

Here are some planner recommendations for those without one:

Muji weekly planner — A no-nonsense planner for those who want a minimalistic design.

Belle De Jour planners — For those who value aesthetics. This brand has one of the most beautiful planners in the market.

Filed! 2021 Scribble Journal — This adds more pizzazz to the normal ones. It consists of monthly mantras, mental health mindfulness pack, self check-in and wellness summaries.

Where to Next The In-Betweens Planner — This elegant planner has special features like a checklist of travel locations in the country, stories from local artists and bucket lists.

Oppa Planner 2021 — This should motivate you to write down and organize your plans.
