6 Must-Have Planners You Need for School

From classes to coffee dates, club meetings and campus events, you have a lot going on during the school year. It’s easy to forget things if you don’t write them down, so step up your organization game with these functional (and stylish!) planners.

If you're environmentally friendly...

Made with recycled materials, this watercolor planner ($21.99, Target) will help you stay organized while going green, aka you'll be winning all around. Pick between two sizes for the perfect fit, and with monthly and weekly formats, you’ll never forget a homework assignment again.

If you're always on the go...

This millennial pink planner is not only adorable; it also informs everyone just how busy you are. ban.do is all the rage when it comes to planners, and for good reason—the fun stickers and quirky illustrations can add some whimsy to your packed calendar, while the simple design will keep you from feeling too overwhelmed by all your upcoming deadlines and events.

If you've always got a ton going on...

You’ll have everything you need and more with this classic Lilly Pulitzer planner ($22). Stay organized from August 2018 through December 2019 with these monthly calendar pages, dates to remember, notes, sticker pages and even a pen loop.

If you're a fan of DIY...

The contents of your planner are all about you, so why shouldn't the design be as well? We love that you can fully design the cover of the LifePlanner with your name and all your favorite pictures. Then on the inside, you get to pick your color scheme, weekly layout and calendar span—this is such an upgrade from that generic spiral notebook you were using last semester. It is a little pricey at $55 (Erin Condren), but this one-of-a-kind planner is worth the investment.

If checking things off your to-do list is your favorite feeling...

Checklist lovers, we’ve got the planner for you! This Mini Daily Planner (Day Designer, $49) has a unique design: instead of a weekly layout, it has over 300 blank daily checklists. Each day, fill out your schedule (from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and write your to-do list, including your three most important tasks at the top. There’s also an inspirational quote and notes section for each day to keep you on the grind. We guarantee you’ll feel super accomplished every time you check something off.

If you don't want bells and whistles...

Sometimes simple is better. We recommend this minimal weekly planner from Emily Ley ($48) to help you focus on the basics. Write down all your assignments for the week in the large daily sections and go big-picture by planning ahead with the monthly tabs. No fuss, no problem.

No matter how hectic your schedule gets this year, keep calm and organized with these awesome planners. You’ll never miss an assignment or forget a lunch date again—and even if you don't have it all together, pulling one of these out of your bag will at least give people the impression that you do.
