Are you looking for a planner to help you maximize your time, increase your productivity, and just keep track of family life?

As moms, there are so many moving parts to our day. Between the kids’ school activities (read: pajama day, food drive, and school performances) and your own day-to-day tasks if you don’t have a planner to keep you organized you are bound to drop the ball at some point.

2021 Best Planners for Moms

Before I share my list, I want to say I am a total planner snob. I started investing in good paper planners about 8 years ago when I realized the $5 Target planners were just not cutting it.

I use a combination of paper and digital planner.

Cozi is a digital family organizing calendar and I absolutely love it. I can share the calendar with my husband and I get lots of reminders and alerts.

As awesome as it is, I prefer a paper calendar where I can jot down notes, check things off my list (feels so good!) and do more in-depth planning and goal setting.

This list includes planners that are not only super functional but they are also beautiful. They are what planner dreams are made of.

How to Pick a Planner that’s Right For You

Because there are so many different types of planners it can be overwhelming to pick the right planner. Here are some questions to ask yourself before picking a planner.

What purpose does your planner serve?

Is your planner to help you keep track of a hectic schedule or track your to do list? Are you working towards some big goals? Or are you just trying to quell the chaos in your family’s life? This will help you decide between a more goal oriented planner and a more schedule based planner.

What’s your budget?

Good planners will run you between $15-$100, so it’s important to consider your budget from the get go! This will help you narrow the playing field.

What Size and Layout works for you?

Do you need a planner that will fit in your purse? Or do you need big pages with lots of space to fill things in? Do you need daily entries with times listed? Do you want an undated or dated planner?

What kind of binding do you prefer?

Binding can make a big difference. Consider if you prefer a spiral bound planner verses a glue binding. Spiral binding allows you to fold the planner better but may lead to loose pages down the line.

Now that you have a better idea of what you want from a planner, here are the best planners for moms in 2021!

Passion Planner

I love the passion planner. This planner is laid out in such a way that you can organize both your personal and professional life.

There is lots of space for goal setting and reflection at the end of each month. It’s super high quality and the binding never breaks. You also have the choice between a Sunday Start or a Monday Start.

The Passion Planner also gives you a ton at a great price. Check out the Passion Planner Here.

This is the Rolls Royce of Planners. It is absolutely gorgeous and has all the bells and whistles. This planner was designed with women in mind to help them live life with intention while also being productive. Shop the Day Designer 2021 Planners now!

The daily layout pages are timed from 5 AM to 9PM and provides tons of space to fill out your daily schedule and to do’s. There’s plenty of space to jot down notes as needed. Plus, the goal setting tools are on another level!

Mom Agenda

These planners are designed especially with moms in mind (hence the name).

The desktop planner is my favorite. The weekly view is uniquely organized to include individualized spaces for up to 4 kids.

This makes keeping track of everyone’s activities super easy. It also includes a monthly view. Check out their free printable section for more tools to help you get organized.

  1. I just love this post! I too am a paper planner kind of gal and have found that making my own is best for me… but sometimes I come across the PERFECT one. Thanks for the heads up about some planner accessories too!

    1. It is tough to find just the right one. Fortunately there are so many great options out there I think it’s getting easier and easier to find good ones!

  2. I am on the market for a new planner. The Erin Condrens are great, but they are so expensive. I want to find a new one that I really like that will give me all the things I want.

    1. I really like the layout of those as well, but I’ve been hesitant to try them because of the spiral binding. But I have always heard really amazing things about her products and they are beautiful.

  3. I am a mom of 2 children and the 2 years of age and I really really need one of these I have been struggling in organizing my days I believe this will be very helpful thank you for sharing

    1. Hi Denise! I hope you find the tools you need to help organize your days. Though with 2 little ones sometimes it’s just organized chaos!

    I’ve been hearing tons about the Passion Planner!! It looks great. I’m super interested in PowerSheets for 2019 🙂

  5. We also use Cozi because I find it much better than a paper planner to keep everyone in the family on the same page. However, I’m currently looking for a separate planner for my blogging. I’ll have to check some of these out.

    1. I’m with you Kathy. A paper planner/calendar system for a family just does not work for us. I keep my work and personal calendar in paper.

  6. I am literally obsessed with the START Planner. I’ve tried so many and it’s the only one that has everything I need! You should check it out. Great post, I haven’t heard of some of these 😉

  7. Great post! I am a planner fan, too and for a long time I bullet journaled. As I got more into my business, I found less time for that and switched to a pre made planner. Thanks for sharing

    1. I haven’t tried a bullet journal, mostly because I’m intimidated! Pre-made planners have come a long way and these are some of the best out there for those who need a pre-made solution!

  8. So excited to read this! Passion planner is on my Xmas list. Can’t wait to give this “organization” thing a try in 2019!

    1. I hope Santa brings you the planner! I’ve got tons of time management tips in the works, so keep checking back and let me know how your organization journey is going!
