A good planner can be life changing. Having a physical, tangible place to create your schedule and see an overview of your life is invaluable. I particularly like the weekly planner that I bought from Gallery Leather at Barnes and Noble. It gives the perfect amount of space to fill in events and also has a full month calendar of each month. It has lots of pages for notes which comes in handy when you need to write down something important. Not only that, it has a collection of maps in the back! I LOVE maps! I use a pencil when writing in it in case things get changed. Gotta keep it tidy!
