I love a good yearly planner because it helps me keep organized and on track. One of my favorite companies that makes great stationary and planners is Rifle Paper Company. They always come out with the planners the summer before the next year. I bought mine July 2016 for this coming year and my mom another planner as well. They sell out the closer you get to the new year, so I would be proactive and buy it early.
I like unique items and chose this planner because it looks like a hard covered book. It has many tabs for the Months, Contacts, Notes, Celebrations and the last page has a slot as well to hold notes. The monthly page is great to remind you of events and the weekly page is for more detailed information. It’s also cool to collect planners and look at them years later for memories.
