Five Amazing (and Free) 2018 Planners You Should Download Now

With the New Year here, I'm spending some time to get myself organized and focused for 2018. 

As I'm working through this process, I found a few resources that I have found helpful: 

I'm currently working on Claire Buswell's An Illuminated Life reflective planner. It's so good. I'm not done yet, but it's forcing me to think about what worked well in the past year and what I envision for my 2018. 

I've been following Anna Runyan's work at Classy Career Girl for a while. She has put together a free 90-day Planner that is both beautiful and functional. It also includes thought-provoking questions to help you get clarity on your goals for 2018.  

And my network highly recommended Danielle Laporte's The Desire Map which looks pretty awesome. Lots of good food for thought surrounding your goals and desires. 

If you are looking for a household planner, I like this one from The Organized Dream or Home Printables Blog

Happy planning,
