There's no better feeling than crossing off items on a to-do list—and with pretty much everything virtual these days, your eyes will thank you for incorporating some good old-fashioned pen and paper into your routine. But with an overwhelming number of 2023 planners and agendas available to shop, it can be difficult to choose just one. Plus, considering that you'll be stuck with yours until the end of the year (or school year), purchasing the right planner can feel like a lot of pressure. For that reason, Marie Claire editors scoured the internet and dug into our own desk drawers to bring you some of the all-time best planners and agendas.

Keep scrolling to check out some of our editors' favorite daily, weekly, and monthly 2023 planners. Whether you're into inspirational quotes, to-do lists, goal-tracking options, or just plain calendar blocks, there's a cute planner here for everyone. (If you're like me and like having a planner-journal duo, grab your next favorite cute notebook while you're on that stationary kick.)

What to Look For in a Planner

Before buying a planner, it's important to consider what you're looking for, what your goals are, and how you like to stay organized. For instance, I love making to-do lists, so I gravitate toward planners that include goal-setting sections, generously sized daily blocks, and plenty of blank lined pages. 

Another important question to ask yourself is when and for how long you intend on using the planner. Some agendas on this list are designed for limited spaces of time (e.g., six weeks or three months at a time); others are undated so that users can focus on accomplishing specific short-term goals. Other goal-oriented planners include inspirational quotes, tips on staying focused, and other tools meant to guide you along your journey. Meanwhile, more traditional, dated planners and agendas simply lay out the entire calendar year or school year.

Finally, consider size and durability when buying a planner. If you carry around a big bag and/or if you need as much space as possible in your planner (for note-taking, mind-mapping, etc.), then a large planner may be best for you. On the other hand, if you need your planner to live and plan on taking it just about everywhere you go, go for a small planner. And if, like me, you tend to be rough on your items, look for a sturdy, hardcover planner so that you don't accidentally rip it to shreds within the first few weeks of use.
