Not matter what your back-to-school plan is for the upcoming semester, you'll want to be as organized as possible when tackling the slew of assignments and tasks that await. In times of tremendous uncertainty (aka the year of 2020), finding ways to feel in control over all the moving parts in our lives is important — and that's where a great planner comes in handy.
There are plenty of reasons to love planners: the month-at-a-glance grids, the daily breakdowns, the blank lines for one-off reminders, the inspirational quotes at the start of each month. Because really... what's a new semester without bullet-pointed lists jotted down in your planner's margins during drop/add period?
Whether you're into planners of the uber-structured variety where everything has its designated space, or you fancy yourself a minimalist and prefer extra doodle room, check out this roundup of 2020's cutest and most useful mid-year and academic planners at a variety of price points.
