Guide to Picking an Agenda

An agenda, in my opinion, is the most important thing in someone's life. I absolutely live for buying new agendas in the summer, and I have to refrain myself from buying all of them because who needs 12 agendas?? Literally no one. I know agenda buying can be a stressful process, so today I picked out some of my favorite brands of agendas. These three agendas are actually the agenda me, my mom, and my sister have. 






Lilly Pulitzer | Personally, my tried and true brand is Lilly Pulitzer. I will not lie to you. I only bought a Lilly agenda my freshman year because it was Lilly, but over the years, I have fallen in love with this agenda. I like having both the monthly and weekly view plus the bright colors make me so happy. I have switched between the large and jumbo sizes each year, and I ordered another jumbo one this year because I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room for everything. I liked having the jumbo my senior year because it is the same size as a notebook, but it can feel a little bit too big sometimes.

The agendas got a little makeover this year. I absolutely love the new design for the pages that start each month, and the monthly preview is a little less cluttered too. The agenda, however, is basically the same as it has been forever. There is a monthly preview followed by weekly pages. There are two pages of stickers this year, and the notes pages are in the front instead of the back like last year, which I am pretty excited about.





Day Designer | I got a Lilly Pulitzer agenda again this year, but if I hadn't, I would have picked a Day Designer. I was not on the Day Designer train for a really long time. I thought they were too much, but recently I was looking at the Blue Sky x Day Designer collection at Target, and I realized they're actually pretty great. I like the setup of a built-in to-do list, and I think having a quote on each page is too cute. Personally, I think they're better for college than high school because of the schedule part.

Ban.do | Another great option is the agendas at ban.do. They're set up in a similar way to Lilly agendas, but instead of having lines on each day to write down everything there's just space. They have a monthly overview, stickers, and a notes section as well! I think the ban.do agendas are super whimsical and fun, and I love the illustrations before each month.
