Hello and happy Friday, everybody!
I sincerely apologize for the lack of posts the past few weeks. Between having strep throat (yay) and celebrating my birthday last week, I’ve been a bit behind on posting. Don’t worry though — I’ve got some great content planned for the next few weeks! :)
Today, I want to share with you my five favorite agendas for Back to School. If you know anything about me, you know that I love to plan, plan, plan. To-do lists are my holy grail and I love organizing things. I purchased a new agenda for all four years of college, and I still had to purchase one this year, even though I’ve graduated. Back to school was always my favorite time of year, ever since I was in elementary school, and now I’m starting to get nostalgic as I walk through Target and see all the school supplies, agendas, backpacks, etc.!
Below, I’ve linked some agendas I recommend to keep you organized for the whole school year.
Lilly Pulitzer // I. Love. These. Agendas. I used a Lilly agenda for the first three years of my college career and absolutely loved it. I love how it’s organized, the stickers that come with it are super cute, and you can’t beat the colorful prints that it comes in! I used a small one for my freshman year, but then moved to the large one and found it to be much more practical. I highly, highly recommend getting one of these, even though it is a bit pricey. It was worth every penny for me.
Kate Spade // After getting three years of use out of the Lilly planners, I decided to switch it up a bit and get a Kate Spade one for my senior year, since I liked the more simplistic patterns that they came in. I got the large one with the gold dots on it and loved it. It was organized very similarly to the Lilly one, but the only thing I didn’t like about it was that it could only lay flat when it was opened. The front cover couldn’t fold back because there was the hard-bound cover over the spirals. Okay, okay, I realize that may not be the best way to put it but I think you get the point. However, overall, I do think I like the simple patterns better than the loud Lilly ones.
ban.do // I have seen this agenda on so many websites, blogs, Instagram posts, etc. and I love it. I haven’t personally used it, but I think it’s adorable and I love the cover of it. It comes in a couple different patterns and sizes, but I think the one pictured above is my favorite. This brand, ban.do, has so many cute accessories, iPhone cases, agendas, and notebooks, and I highly recommend browsing their website.
Sugar Paper // This is the agenda I purchased this summer from Target to use for my post-grad life. I figured since now I don’t have classes, clubs, meetings, etc. to worry about, I simply couldn’t justify spending $30+ on an agenda. This one is very simple, but I really like it so far! It’s organized pretty similarly to most agendas, but it’s a little smaller and cheaper than the ones I’ve purchased in the past. So far, it’s done the job for me!
Posy Paper // I found this brand on Etsy because one of my friends told me that’s where she purchased her agenda from. This shop has a lot of cute agendas and they’re only $20, which is a pretty good price for an agenda. One thing I really like is that it’s a 12-month agenda. I never understood why the Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade agendas went from August – December of the following year, because I would always purchase a new one before the new school year started, so a few months would go to waste! Plus, with this agenda you can pick your start month — which is super cool, in my opinion!
Honestly, I don’t know what I would have done without my agendas throughout college. I would write when assignments/papers were due, when my exams were, when I had meetings, etc., and I definitely would be lost without it!
Which agenda will you be purchasing for the school year (or for just life in general)? Let me know in the comments below!
