Organised much?

Friday, January 12, 2018

We’re already a few weeks into the New Year, but it’s never too late to get yourself a planner and get organised. Trisha Ghoroi & Pearl Mathias bring you their favourites

Whether you’re the extremely organised ‘jotting down every living moment in my journal’ type or you simply couldn’t care much about making a note of things, you can’t deny the usefulness of an organiser or a planner, or maybe even a desk calendar. Well, you can play the ‘I belong to the digital age’ card, but you know as well as we do that setting reminders on your phone, while extremely useful, comes nowhere close to actually looking at your tasks and appointments sprawled out on a colourful sheet in front of you, ready to be crossed off as soon as you’re through with them. If you haven’t got yourself an extremely helpful desk accessory yet, why not take a look at our picks? Pssst... They also make great gifts if you missed out on someone during the festive season.

Planners are a great way to stay organised and remind you of the tasks you need to get done. Work assignments or college submissions, they all need to go into your planner so that you’re not running around confused about deadlines. Include fun stuff in your planner such as a day out with friends or shopping to keep it fun and interesting. Not all planners will speak to everyone. Some want their planners to look cute, white others prefer a minimal visage. Here are a few types of planners you can choose from.

Designer planners
If you want your planner brimming with cuteness, with lots of colours and caricatures, then this type is for you! Apart from the basic patter of a monthly calendar followed by your daily planner, these kinds of planners will make you smile each time you open them.

Our pick:
Plan the happy year

We love The Planner Of Infinite Happiness 2018 by Alicia Souza. which features a bright peach cover shade and golden detailing. The best part is that it comes with three pages of stickers, which are as adorable as the caricatures for each month. Get it at for Rs 1,199.

Basic planners
If minimalism is your style and you prefer crisp lines, this kind of planner would suit you best. They have simple monochrome colour scheme, which helps you concentrate on the tasks at hand. Perfect for a business or corporate environment, this type is the perfect way to plan the year.

Our pick:

Avoid meeting people who do not have anything good to say about anyone. There could also be a bit of a financial crunch, which will be overcome soon. You are expecting too much out of a relationship without making an effort. Some action or an element of surprise will spice things up.
