After you’ve ushered in the New Year with confetti, dancing and a kiss from your sweetheart when the clock strikes midnight, it’s time to start thinking about your 2015 resolutions. Although we’re always enthusiastic about getting started, our new start is usually discarded by Valentine’s Day.
We blame that on poor planners.
To make the most of 2015, get organized with an agenda that’s stylish and functional. Instead of forgetting that you promised yourself that you’d be at the gym at least once a week, write it down and follow through. If your new agenda happens to be pretty, that’s an extra plus.
Not all planners are created equal, so we’re giving you the details on some of our favorites. (Along with some exclusive discount codes to get the best deal!)
Ninj & Ninj
When you just need an extra boost of motivation (and an excuse to not procrastinate), Ninj & Ninj’s floral planner has you covered. The compact style makes it easy to slip into your purse, so you can check your to-do list on your daily commute. And if the cover wasn’t pretty enough, the planner’s interior features mint-colored accents. The bronze spiral makes the pages easy to turn, too.

Design Love Planner
After searching for the perfect planner and finding none that met her criteria, Marissa of Design Love Planner decided to create her own. Like many young women, Marissa wanted to be inspired while planning her hectic schedule, so she added 12 perforated prints with motivational messages to the agenda. We love that you can leave these sweet pieces of inspiration on your friends’ desks or hang up them on your fridge. The agenda also features monthly budget sheets and weekly to-do lists that will keep you on track.

The Passion Planner
The Passion Planner’s main goal is to help you define yours. With your time broken down into 30-minute increments, you’ll be able to see how you’re spending it. Sections dedicated to this week’s focus and built-in brainstorming areas allow you to tailor the Passion Planner to your busy schedule. Additionally, it helps you focus on what’s important, with a long-term goal guide and gratitude logs.
Ban.do’s sweet planner includes bright, color-coded tabs and happy month openers. To add some play to all of your hard work, ban.do’s “I AM VERY BUSY” agenda has a super useful pocket for confetti and sparkles (or your train card and class schedule). Plus, there’s weekend inspiration—like dying your hair pink and creating an inspiration board—for you and your gal pals.
Because the planner’s just too rad, it’s sold out at the moment. It will be up for sale at the start of the new year, though!
To order one, skate on over to ban.do.
