What is the best planner to buy? There are a lot of options out there. I found Panda Planner by accident when I was looking for planners to feature here. I love this planner! And I have used some of the most expensive planners out there too. Franklin and Day-Timer.
What is really nice about Panda is the pages are undated, so if you miss a day, you only lose by getting less done that day. And the positivity.
Panda Planner Classic is a 3-month planner with monthly, weekly, and daily pages. Monthly includes spaces for each day of the month, plus Goals, Distractions to Avoid, and a review area for reviewing this month’s wins and insights gained.
Weekly pages include wins from last week, how I’ll improve, personal, work, family/friends, and relationship areas, I’m Looking Forward To, Habits I’m Focusing on Developing, Learn Something New, Passion Project. And bigger sections for notes about projects. Also, Top Goals this week.
Daily pages include Morning Review sections with I’m Grateful For.. and I’m Excited About sections. Slots for Affirmation for the day, Focus, and Exercise. Today’s Priorities, Schedule, Task List with boxes to check off when completed, notes section and an End of Day Review with Today’s Wins and How I’ll Improve. What a positive planner!
I’m not sure how they fit all that in there. The Classic is a nice size, not too big. 5.25″ X 8.25″, undated. Hardcover. (There is also Pro version in 8.5″ X 11″.)
In addition, there is a pocket in the back to stash receipts or other important things and there is an elastic band to keep the planner shut. These also include 3 color-coordinated ribbons to mark your day, week and monthly pages. I hope you take me up on these great planners. They will bring some joy into your life and help you stay organized. Mayo Clinic advises using a planner to help with brain function and memory.

Using a planner helps you live with intent. You are much more likely to get things done and write down ideas if you have a planner to plan out every area of your life. If you have memory problems, using a planner will help you take back control. So, while you’re making new memories, you can also save some memories.
I keep mine with me to jot down ideas I have for new articles or features for this website. I also like that it urges me to think of all areas of my life, including exercise. This way you can Plan for balance in your life, instead of just ‘letting things happen’. I definitely get more done and ideas don’t slip my mind. I will also tell you the buying experience delighted me. It’s an event. 🙂
As a scientifically designed and positivity-oriented planner, I think Panda Planner is the Best planner to buy.
