If a weekly or daily planner is simply more than you need, then consider a monthly planner. You can choose something like a wall calendar or a desk pad if you want, but an actual monthly planner is much better if you need to carry it with you to work and to various meetings. These three monthly planners are all true monthly calendars, but with a little something extra to help you out.
Erin Condren Monthly Planner
Erin Condren’s first-ever monthly planner doesn’t disappoint. With a sleek design, perfect bound cover, and tons of room for note taking, it’s an extremely efficient monthly planner. All of the monthly calendars are lumped together at the start of the planner, followed by 92 pages for notes. You can use these note pages for a week’s worth of tasks and information or even for different projects you have going on. It’s a flexible layout for you to personalize your own way. You can choose the cover design you want and even personalize the front with a sleek and understated monogram.
The Deluxe Monthly Planner from Erin Condren is for those who want a little bit more oomph. It’s a lot like the regular monthly planner, but each monthly calendar is separated from the next by note pages, and the cover is wire-bound like the standard Erin Condren LifePlanner. This means the interchangeable planner covers from Erin Condren all work with it (yay!). It comes with a folder, two sticker sheets, and a range of customization features. While it has a lot of great things to offer, the one hang-up with this monthly planner is that it has fewer note pages than the regular monthly planner.
The Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly planner starts at $30.
PurpleTrail Monthly Planner
The Monthly Planners from PurpleTrail are like their daily and weekly planners: Amazing and completely customizable. It’s 24 months long, has a notes section, and comes in two sizes, with multiple cover options, and is color-coordinated. There are 17 different add-on options for you to choose from, so you can keep things simple with monthly planning and be more detailed with things like your budget, your to-do list, and even your workouts and diet. You also choose the starting month, so the planner can be purchased and useful at any point in the year.
