Become A Reformed Hot Mess in 2024! Pick The Best Planner For YOU!

Dec 8, 2023 | Productivity

The Page Company planners are the best planners you will find! But with a handful of different options, how do you know which one is the BEST one for you?! I'm breaking down the differences between all of my different planners so that you can choose which one will turn YOU into a fellow Reformed Hot Mess!

You've seen me share my viral planners, and you're finally ready to see if the hype is worth it… (Spoiler alert: it is!) But you're wondering which of my several planner styles is right for you?!

Once upon a time, I started teaching my method of planning and scheduling my day. I call it the Block Schedule system, and it took OFF! Thanks to your overwhelming support, I took the method and turned it into physical planners that you can buy from The Page Company! You can read all about the beginning of their creation here. Over the years, we've had tons of different covers and styles that have evolved into a collection of planners to choose from: Weekly Block Schedule Planners, Daily Block Schedule Planners, Capable Planners, Budget Planners, and Buildable Planners.

If you're wanting to try out a new planner but not sure which Page Company planner would be the best for you, we're going to break them all down in this blog post! Plus, you can use code FCFBLOG for 10% off your order from The Page Company!

Daily Block Schedule Planner:

Daily Block Schedule Planners are hardcover planners that come in 3-month and 6-month versions. They are UNDATED, so they can be started at any point in the year! I love that, because you only fill out the daily blocks on the days you need them. So if you don't use your daily blocks on weekends, then this will end up lasting you much longer! No pages are left blank or wasted!

Throughout the daily block pages are sections for your weekly meal planner and grocery list, important to-do's, and notes.

Who is this planner for? 

  • The busy mama who needs to focus on one day at a time.
  • The detail-oriented person who likes to write down and cross off every task for the day!
  • Anyone that would get overwhelmed looking at the entire week's to-do's at once.

    I’ve been following you for years and always love your content thank you! I am a planner nerd and have tried many out there over the years. The block planner format has been the best fit for me and made me the most productive. I can juggle home and work life all in one place. I have ordered the daily block planner several times and then had my first baby and life flipped upside down. 🙂 I never ordered another one. Big mistake! I need the block format in my life. I love that there are so many options now to choose from thank you!! It makes my planner nerd heart so happy. <3
