Staying organized is one of the more important aspects of #NinjaLife. Let’s face it, when you’re lost and bumbling around, everyone else is too. Earlier this summer, we talked about 4 Calendar Apps That Will Blow Your Mind (did they?). Now, let’s talk about a planner that you can hold in your hands. It may seem silly to use such an analog method of staying organized with the rapid advances of technology, but sometimes it takes more than your iPhone to feel ready to take on the world.
Of course Moleskine begins our list. We’ll start there because it’s often thought to be the Holy Grail of notebooks, journals, office supplies, and, to suit this particular purpose, planners. You have the option of hard or soft covers, all sorts of page designs, a few different sizes, and a variety of styles ranging from monthly to daily diaries. This is one of those times that being a part of the “in crowd” seems worth it.
Price: $12 – $39.95
Our friends at Poppin are always en vogue. Like all of their products, it’s all about choosing what makes you feel inspired while also being able to feel like you’re organized. In the case of Poppin, that organization takes it to a whole other level – right down to an office supply color scheme! Being ultra obsessed about organization doesn’t have to be hard.
3. Mochi Things
Variety is the spice of life. We don’t want you to be just an average office ninja. With a planner like this Alice in Wonderland scheduler, you’re sure to be the hit of the next “office mom” therapy session with your other friends in the business. Mochi Things has lots of other cute options, so no one has to copy your swag.
It is said to be everything that “busy, intentional women need.” We tend to think that describes the sassy ladies (and some gents) that make up our office ninja horde. Simplified and deliberate, the pages contain: Today (7am-7pm schedule), To-do, Notes, and Dinner. There’s really no need for anything more, so when you choose this planner, you’re choosing to streamline.
