I can hardly believe that it’s time to start thinking about 2015 and where I’ll keep track of my year. Wasn’t it just 1998? (Yeah, I’m dating myself here for sure.) Every week from now through the holidays we’ll be sharing a dozen calendars worthy of marking your days and keeping your life in order. Stayed tuned for a separate post series on planners, too!

I’m one of those people. The kind who prefers pen and paper to touchscreen and who needs to write down everything in order to remember it. I’ve used a day planner since high school, but 2013 was the year I found The One. The Whitney English Day Designer is so well thought out that I have to refrain from kissing the lady behind it each and every time I see her. From the worksheets in the front for the solo entrepreneur, to the full page allotted for each day, to the schedule and to do columns – I’m smitten. I’ve never felt more organized in my life, which is saying a lot. (Please note the importance of the last item on my Sunday to do list below.)
