Call me old school if you want, but I have a love that runs deep for a traditional paper planner.  

There is something so fulfilling about actually writing down my schedule, seeing my weekly view, and also being able to visualize months ahead.  

I have tried time and time again to consolidate all of my “planning” into my phone, but that never fully stuck as the solo planner in my life.   It felt like there was a piece missing, I found it!  I have found that using my device to compliment my traditional way of planning and scheduling is the way that works best for me.  

Hunting for the “perfect” planner, for what feels like most of my adult life, has been quite the feat.  There are so many options available!  

Earlier this year I did a collaboration with Franklin Planner and I thought I was hooked on their beautiful planning products BUT then I recently came across their Tyler Leather Zipper Binder online and figured it was a good time to upgrade!  I know we still have 3 solid months left in 2018 but the thought of getting a head start on the upcoming year seemed all too satisfying.   Plus, it’s available in olive green!  Olive.  Green.  I couldn’t resist.  

I decided to go BIG, their Monarch size which is 8.5″ x 11″, is exactly what I was looking for.   I was secretly hoping my laptop would also fit in it, and guess what?!  It does!  I love the all pockets inside but I think what I am drawn to most is that it zips shut keeping all of my lose papers together, neatly organized, and crinkle free.  

I selected their Blooms Two Page Monthly Calendar Tabs with a weekly planner for the fillers.  I personally am drawn this layout because I like to be able to see my week and my month at a glance.  

Not only are these pages pretty and well designed but there is plenty of large writing space, which this momma needs!  Plus, did you notice how the pages are lined?  These little details make my OCD heart feel so happy!  

These are just a few of the products that I picked out that work best for my lifestyle but there are literally hundreds of options over at Franklin Planner giving everyone the chance to semi-custom build a planner that meets individual personality, style, and organizational needs.  I know you will find something that works for you!  

The incredible team at Franklin Planner has given me a discount code to share with all of my online friends, including you!  Use code ASHLEY at  for 15% off your entire order.   

Happy planning babes!
