I have searched high and low for a planner that accommodates my needs and one that I actually USE. I have tried Happy Planner and spent hundreds of dollars on all of the accessories thinking that that would make the difference. I have tried a completely digital route. I have even tried both at the same time. And none of these options were quite right. I don’t remember how it happened, but one night I stumbled upon Silk + Sonder. I was intrigued by the idea of a monthly subscription to a monthly planner (who doesn’t love getting a package in the mail these days). It was reasonably priced and looked pretty (lol), so I decided to give it a try. After using it for three weeks now, I am optimistic that this is what I have been looking for all along. It is not just a planner. Each month has a theme and guides you through affirmations, journaling, habit trackers and more. And I really like that I can only focus on one month at time.
I received my June planner yesterday and I can hardly wait to start filling it in. 😀
As promised, here are photos from the inside along with a brief caption.
If you're interested in giving it a shot, I recommend trying out the 3 month gift subscription—just gift it to yourself! Or, you could just give one month a go.
