2015 Calendars: Part 1

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!

Whitney English Day Designer

Whitney English Day Designer-1-Design Crush

 

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.)
