7 Planners For An Inspired 2018
Stay organized and keep your goals in sight with these picks
There's flurry of journals and planners as soon as the last quarter of the year kicks in, and it can get dizzying to choose from all the options. Check out this shortlist to help you make up your mind.
For the Go-getter Officemate
Everything Is Possible by Belle De Jour is like a self-help book that lets you plot your goals for the year and encourages you to follow them through. This nifty planner helps you zero in on personal, health, career, and financial goals so you can map out steps to achieve them. Each month opens with nuggets of wisdom to prod you on, while the spacious weekly pages allow you to list down and tick off your daily to-do lists.
Available at Fully Booked; available online for P540
For the Dreamer
The Daykeeper (P1,090) is probably one of the more beautiful journals you can get your hands on. This hardbound planner is filled with dreamy photos as well as quotes and verses that will definitely keep you inspired all year round. Opposite each weekly page is a blank page that lets you jot down anything that you feel grateful for—no matter how mundane. Or, you may use the pages for your own calligraphy art and other musings. The Daykeeper also comes with four postcards and a carrying pouch.

For the Giver
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf gives you more reason to just collect stamps: you not only get to bring home a 2018 Giving Journal after 12 stamps, you're also able to help send underprivileged kids to school through CBTL's partnership with Real LIFE Foundation. The journal comes in three pretty colors: green, blue, and gray, plus a DIY cover that lets you doodle your own design. Along with the weekly pages are inspirational quotes to help you pursue your goals. A bonus: there are coupons you can use to redeem freebies and discounts! Now this is one planner worth going stamp-crazy for.
For the No-nonsense Friend
Not all desk calendars are made equal. Case in point: Print Cafe's pretty desk planners (P349.75). The weekly planner comes in thick, A4-size sheets that have no specific dates or months so you can easily customize it according to your preference. This format lets you view an entire month in one glance, so you'll readily know which days are busy and which ones can be reserved for some quality time. Some designs also let you list down a reward for a job well done. Whatever design you choose, it's sure to spruce up your work desk.

For the Tropics Lover
It's forever summer when you tote the 2018 Keepsake Planner (P545). Lush greens and brightly colored flamingos on the cover make this an eye candy, while the undated weekly and monthly overviews allow you to use this journal more flexibly. There's also a free sheet of stickers to keep your to-do list fun and tropical-inspired no matter the season. You may also customize your Keepsake with your name for a more personalized touch.
Available at Fully Booked, or you may order at www.filed.com.ph.
For the Wanderlust-er
Where To Next, an online community of adventurers, has made planning and cataloguing travels easier with its On Assignment planner (P680). It's housed in a leather sleeve, and features challenges and bucket lists you can immerse yourself into for a truly memorable 2018. The months are also dateless to give you more freedom when jotting down plans. And for every planner sold, the WTN community will plant a tree in the ancestral domain of the Aetas in Zambales.

For the Coffee Addict
It's been more than a decade since world-famous coffee chain Starbucks started its holiday tradition of sticker collection for its coveted planner. This year is no different. Fans of the global brand have already started collecting stickers to get their hands on the 2018 planner, which comes in two sizes and in colorful designs. Either size comes with a leather sleeve (in dark and light brown) that features the famous mermaid logo. All you need are 18 stickers, and the planner is all yours.
