// A Preview of My 2023 Planner Lineup!

 Y'all! Is it really almost 2023?!

I can't even. This year just flew by. It had so many ups & downs. I learned a lot of lessons & experienced a lot of growth. 

I want to do even better in 2023. For this reason, I had to put a lot of thought into a planner lineup. If you're a non-planner, a planner lineup is basically your chosen set of planners for the year. Some people only use one planner. Others use a digital planner. For me, I am using four planners which will all serve a different purpose & I am so excited.

It took a long time for me to decide on a lineup. I have verrrry specific requirements re: the paper, the size & the layout. I need lined layouts and smudge-proof paper, since I'm left-handed. I searched high and low for the perfect planners and ended defaulting back to two of my favorite brands: Hobonichi & The Happy Planner.

I'm sooo late to the game this year; my planners haven't even arrived yet! But I did want to show you which planners I ended up buying & what I'll be using them for! So, without further ado ..

I will be using this compact daily planner to jot down my memories of the day! I used one in 2022 & I absolutely loved it. I added stickers & cute mini photos that I printed using my LifePrint printer. You can get this planner on Amazon!

I defaulted back to a Happy Planner Classic for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, the price is unmatched. In 2022, I purchased inserts and they were more expensive than this entire planner. The paper quality is great & I also love the monthly layouts. This will be the first year that I'll be planning in a horizontal planner, but I need lines in my planner layout & it seems that lined vertical layouts no longer exist from HP. I'm hoping that I can make it work! I purchased this planner on Amazon as well!

I have been using Happy Planner Mini's for work since 2021 & after a lot of trial & error, I decided that a lined horizontal layout was best for my needs. I use this planner to keep track of Venmo & cash payments for my business, work schedules & my business to-do's. I think that I'll also be using it for social media planning this year! I specifically chose this 90s planner because of the neutral layouts, but being a 90s baby helped solidify that decision. 

This is my first time using a Happy Planner Skinny Classic & I'm super excited. It's the same height as the Happy Planner Classic but half the width. PlanWithArri on Instagram uses one for home & meal planning & I love the idea. I'm hoping she posts a full tour of that planner soon!

I'm hoping this set of planners will help me thrive & persevere in 2023! Cheers to a successful & fulfilling New Year. Thanks for reading. ♥
