As we’re about to close the book on 2021, it’s the perfect time to snag a mid-year planner to help you get organized this season. With some in-person events happening finally, you’ll need a place to pencil in a birthday party, an IRL happy hour, or a workout class that doesn’t involve being interrupted by the kids or your partner in the living room. If you’re still staying home, that’s totally okay too—a 2022-2023 planner or bullet journal
is the perfect way to visualize your work week. To be honest, they’re utterly satisfying, so consider them a form of self-care that you can actually do each day.
As we’re learning, 2022 won’t be completely normal still. But, we’re going to make the most of it and are adapting to these constantly changing times — and that means not throwing our planners in the dumpster. And if you’re a completely digital person, there’s an online version for you. If you’re in need of a personal assistant, consider these planners the next best thing.
Ahead, check out the best 2022 planners and bullet journals that’ll help you feel like you’ve got a little more of a grip on this year, which is honestly the best gift you can give to yourself these days.

The Ultimate Planner
The last two years were rough, and we’re all recovering. This planner acknowledges that sometimes you take one step and two steps back. There’s plenty of space to write down your to-dos, plan out your schedule and meditate on guided journal prompts that this planner provides. The Happy Planner is known for making agendas and journals that appeal to every Type A tendency you have. If you don’t love this design, there are plenty of others to choose from.
This planner is so gorgeous, it’s basically art. The thread-stitched binding ensures it stays in tact the entire year, and it features plenty of space for notes and to jot down appointments.
You can never go wrong with a Moleskine notebook
— these timeless planners are toted around by so many for a reason. Not only do they look sleek and scholarly, they boast a thin design that is easy to pop into any purse.
Some of us refuse to use a tangible planner because we keep everything clutter-free. Your Outlook calendar can only do so much when it comes to keeping your life together, though. Enter the digital bullet journal—you can even add hyperlinks into this online planner. And, thankfully, Etsy’s full of these downloadable schedule helpers that will be ready to use in minutes.
If you’re the kind of person who needs every single item to look like it was made just for you, prepare to want to spend all your money at Papier. Aside from looking downright eye-catching, we love these planners because you can choose from an annual or mid-year planner if you forget to buy a planner until summer. If you choose the 16-week planner, you fill out the dates yourself so you can start using it at any time.
This planner was made for minimalists. It has a white-striped design that’ll instantly make you feel at ease, and it has plenty of blank space so you can organize your thoughts and day the way you want to.
Beginner’s Bullet Journal
If you’ve never done the bullet journaling thing, there’s no reason to be intimidated. This beginner-friendly version
takes you step-by-step. In addition to the weekly planner section, it includes a monthly goal checklist, habit tracker (use it as anything from a period tracker to logging daily steps), and our favorite: the brain dump section. Couldn’t be more fitting right now.
Well, you definitely won’t misplace this planner — thanks to its vibrant colors. Lilly Pulitzer has the ultimate preppy planners. This medium-size one allows you to track your to-dos, goals, errands and social engagements on its very colorfully illustrated pages.
