Buying a new planner gives you an endorphin rush like no other, whether it’s for a new semester, work year or just a much-needed fresh start. A good one should help you stay on track without overwhelming you.
Here at WIRED, our Gear team prefers paper planners over digital tools – nothing beats the feel of a pen on a brand new sheet of paper, and writing things down helps us remember them – but this time we’ve added a digital tool which we think can add to (not replace) your analog setup.
We haven’t recommended one best planner because everyone has different preferences, types of tasks, and willingness to scribble and organize. I grilled the WIRED staff for their favorites and tried a bunch myself. Once you’ve found something that works for you, check out our work from home guides, the best webcams, or the best gear for starting a podcast.
Updated July 2022: We’ve added Class Tracker and we’ve also updated the links to the latest versions.
