Although it's only August and 2016 is still a few months away, I've already started to think about what kind of planner I want for next year. But, problem is, I have no idea which one to choose... which is where you come in :) Help!
I'm debating between 3 different kinds (but am totally open to suggestions!)
Erin Condren Life Planner

I love love love my current Life Planner, but I kinda don't love how big and bulky it is and how the page layout is vertical. And then, one day I was perusing Instagram and I saw Erin Condren's post that the planner now comes in the horizontal page set up. Game changer!!! I love that layout so much more, so it totally threw me when I thought I knew what I wanted in a planner for next year.
I know this probably sounds totally stupid to most people but I really like the big tabs, I really like the big 2-page monthly calendar layout, and I really love the stickers, page marker, and zipper pouch that come with it.
But I also feel like the only part of the planner I've been utilizing lately is the monthly page view, and surely I don't need a $50 planner for a monthly page view. But is it because I don't like the vertical page layout? I don't know.

I like that it already has the hours laid out for you so you know exactly how much room you have to write and then things don't get jumbled together or out of time order.
I also kinda love the accessories you can buy for it!
Small, cheapy planner from Target
I don't have a specific one in mind for this and I think that's the problem. Compared to the planner I have now, they all seem so... boring and small. And I know one of my complaints was that the EC one is too big, but the space to write on the little 5ish x 7ish planners is, well, small! And I don't write small so I'm afraid I'll buy one and hate how little space I have to write. The weekly pages seem like they have a decent amount of room, but I'm more worried about the monthly view, especially since that's what I've been utilizing the most recently.
So, help! Thoughts? Opinions? Recommendations? I'm hoping maybe I can make a decision by my birthday next month and can encourage someone *cough Seth cough* to get me a new one for my birthday but I need your help!
Thank you in advance!
