I don’t know about you, but even though it has been more than a decade (ahem) since I was last in school, I’ve never really been able to break the habit of starting a new planner right before the beginning of a new school year. And if you’re like me, you’re in luck! Here are five absolutely gorgeous 2015-2016 planners (or agendas – or whatever you call them) that you can start using right this very minute!
1. Rifle Paper Co.
2. Kate Spade
4. Day Designer for Blue Sky (available online and at Target!)
5. The Day Designer flagship edition
If you’ve been reading OSBP for any length of time, you probably already know about the amazing Day Designer planners. My friend Whitney created the Day Designer a few years ago to help users find balance and live an organized life – and it has been a huge hit ever since! You can find the amazing flagship edition of the Day Designer right here, but today I’m super excited to help share the news that Whitney has teamed up with Blue Sky to produce a special edition of the Day Designer available exclusively at Target stores starting this week!!
Day Designer for Blue Sky is available in an incredible 29 format and cover options – from full-size 8″ x 10″ planners to purse-friendly weekly/monthly planners to wall and desk calendars! You can even find special free printables for travel, food, and school! There are even casebound versions for those of you who aren’t fans of the wire-o binding. The cover options include bright solid colors and floral patterns, but I think I’ll always be partial to the classic gold stripe pattern. So classic!
You can browse the full collection right here – and find the collection at a Target store near you starting this week! Yay!
I rounded up some of my favorite planners a couple of weeks ago – and today I’m super excited to be giving away one of the fabulous 2015 planners from Laurel Denise!
This gorgeous planner has been one of my favorites for the last few years: it’s well-designed without being overwhelming, and with plenty of space to keep track of everything from appointments to to-do’s to ideas and inspiration.
Laurel designed her planner to let you view both monthly and weekly pages at the same time – so you can plan each weekly schedule while keeping track of what’s ahead! Just turn a new page for each new week in the month, without ever losing sight of the full-month view. Oh, and there’s also room for goal planning in 2015 and into 2016!
This year’s planner features a beautiful matte gray cover with spiral bound pages along with inside folders on front and back cover, individually tabbed months, lined note-taking pages, graph paper note-taking pages, and more!

A well-designed planner or agenda has historically been a design white whale: a rumor on the wind but nearly impossible to find in reality. But in the past few years designers have (thankfully) stepped up their game with some really gorgeous options! So here are a few options for those of you still on the hunt for a beautiful way to stay organized in 2015 – and you can find a few more (28 total!) in the full 2015 planner round up right here!
1. The always gorgeous 2015 planner from Laurel Denise
2. The Ban.do 17-month agenda sold out super fast – but if you’re lucky you can still find some local retailers with a copy!
3. Fun preppy patterns from Sarah Pinto
4. This planner from Paper Source features a fun color palette of mint and gold foil!
5. + 6. Julia Kostreva has several gorgeous everyday planners that can be used during any year (I’m partial to this marbled indigo and gold foil design) and this minimalist 2015 planner
7. I love the cover of this Kate Spade planner!
8. The Day Designer – simply put: the most well thought out heavy duty planner I’ve ever seen (with gorgeous design to boot!) Most editions sell out super fast – so be sure to get on the waiting list if you want a copy!
