Plan Ahead!

Raise your hand if you have used planners for years and cannot imagine life without them. Now, let’s see a show of hands from those of you who may think you’re not “the planner type.” But are you actually the planner type? Answer these questions to find out! Are you a visual learner who loves to see your days laid out in front of you? Are you someone who can’t remember anything unless you physically write it down? Or are you a loyalist who prefers the purity of paper over electronics?

If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions, then get excited. Why? Because, as we announced at Brisbane Convention, we have created our own planner that we’ll be making available for order later this month! Take a look!

Check out this beautiful, customizable planner! #ctmh #closetomyheart #2016planner #organization #papercrafting

First, get your hands on our adorable three-ringed Everyday Life™ album. Its black cover with a gold foil floral design is sure to be the envy of all your friends. Then grab the Everyday Life™ 2016 planner pages, which include weekly and monthly spreads to help you focus in on the daily details but also remember your plans for the entire month. The planner pages also include four sheets of colorful label stickers, 12 trendy monthly dividers with tabs, and a bookmark-style page finder to help you turn quickly to the current day. To help you store receipts, fliers, and more, there’s also a pocket folder page. Is that organized or what?

Personalize your pages even more with the Everyday Life™ Perfect Plan roller stamp, which has phrases like “shopping list,” “no school,” and “don’t forget.” We’ve designed this roller stamp to coordinate with the label stickers; simply place the label sticker in your planner, and then stamp the phrase of your choice onto it. With several colors to choose from, you can color coordinate your reminders for organization perfection!

So pull out your current planner, family calendar, or even a Post-It note, and write this down: order the Close To My Heart planner as soon as it is available, later in November. We know this is a reminder you’ll appreciate all year long!

    • Hi, Ann! The Everyday Life™ album is 9 3/8 ” x 8 1/4″ x 1 1/2″. The Everyday Life™ 2016 planner pages you can put inside are 8 3/8″ x 6 7/8″.

  1. I am going to have to give this one a go – love decorating things, love paper so cannot imagine why I would not love this too. I love the idea of personalising it to what you want it to look like

  3. On the day the planner becomes available, we will have a blog post letting everyone know they can now place an order. If you aren’t subscribed to the blog, we highly encourage you to subscribe right now! That way you’ll instantly get an email when we share a new post. Stay tuned! 🙂

  4. It looks like the dates on the planner month at a view start with a Sunday, but the regular weekly pages start with a Monday. Is that true, or am I seeing things?

    • You’re correct, Diena! The monthly spreads run from Sunday to Saturday, like a regular calendar. The weekly spreads run from Monday to Sunday, making it easy to view your weekend plans at a glance!

  5. I’m a school administrator and my planner is always within reach. I feel like I’ve been on a 20 year search for the perfect planner. This one looks like it will have plenty of room for appointments, notes and other information. I can’t wait to see it in person!

  6. Looks like fun.I use a different one on this order but would be willing to change it up..roughly what r the prices?

  7. I am interested in your products and would love to know more about your products and specifically your planner. Thanks!

    • We’re so glad to hear that, Liz! Do you already know someone who is a Close To My Heart Consultant? If not, go to, select “What We Do,” and then click on “Find a Consultant.” Your Consultant will be able to tell you all about our products, show you how they work first-hand, and give you more information about the planner. 🙂

  8. Love this so glad you are joining the planner craze, would like to know if you will be selling the inserts separately, I’m a filofax girl, and would love to purchase the goodies for my planner…thanks so much…
