We love our digital calendars, organization apps and to do lists on our phone. But if your digital diligence looks more like 10,234 screen shots that you immediately forget about, or missed online calendar alarms, or you’re trying to cut back on screen time this year, a paper planner can be a lifesaver. Not only are they stylish, but a 2021 study found that people who took notes with pen and paper had better memory than those who did the same on a device. In other words, if your iPhone isn’t doing it for you, it’s time to go old school. To help you choose one you love, here are six super cute and well-designed planners.
