Which lesson planner to choose?


I love being organized.  I love school supplies.  So, naturally I love picking out my lesson planner for the upcoming year.  This past year I used the Erin Condren Teacher Planner.  I absolutely loved it, but I didn’t love the price tag.  I searched for an alternative and found something that I really like!  I have a weakness for anything Etsy and stumbled across Plum Paper.  I ended up buying two!  I bought a teacher planner and a personal planner for 2015.
I want to add that I am not being compensated for this post and it is my own personal opinion.  On to the planners!  I lined up my EC and Plum Paper planner so that you could see the difference in size.
Don’t get me wrong…I like the large EC planner, but sometimes it’s too big.  The more room that I have on my desk the better.  The Plum Paper planner is smaller and so far I like the size.  I usually store my planner on a podium near my desk.
Here is a side by side comparison:
Both planners have a year spread for easy viewing.  The EC one is on the laminated back cover and the Plum Paper is on a two page spread near the front of the planner.
The inside of the planner isn’t too different.  I love the pretty colors of the EC planner!  This is a picture of a normal week in October from last year’s planner.
Here is the inside spread in the Plum Paper planner.  One of my favorite things about the planner is that I was able to customize it so that the subjects I teach are written down the side.  There are also some great places for notes and to dos on each week spread.

I’m excited to put this planner to use in the upcoming school year.  I really like it so far…especially the price tag!  They start at 16$ each.  What planner do you use?
