Where did the summer go? All of a sudden, it’s time for school to start. Keep the fun going but take time to get organized for the school year. Set yourself up for success by establishing a routine and finding the best organizational tools.
Here are some personal perspectives and reviews shared by some of the students, teachers, parents, and professionals with whom we talked. They share the reasons they love the academic planner they chose from the wide selection at AT-A-GLANCE. We also share some of our top picks for this academic year. Which one do YOU identify with the most?
“I can’t believe I leave for college soon, and I don’t have my academic planner yet,” says Noah, an incoming freshman at Ohio State University. “I just like to have it before school starts so that I can put in all the dates I need to remember and be ready to hit the ground running. I did pretty well in high school, but only used my agenda occasionally. I know that in college, I’ll need to use my student planner faithfully to keep me focused. I’ll have to be sure nothing falls through the cracks and be disciplined with the free time. I want to create a good study schedule and get into a routine.”
Noah and his friend, Chloe, also an incoming freshman, both chose the AT-A-GLANCE Signature Planner for the upcoming school year’s weekly academic planner.
“I really like the unusual block layout,” he explained. “It’s wide open, and I like that the weekend also has its own space, and there’s still room for notes. It looks cool and feels great, too. It’s sturdy and flexible, and the paper and coil are substantial.”
The Signature Collection layout is unusual. The monthly layout gives you a notes column on the left side, and each week features a block layout with lots of open space. The Signature Planner is built to last with a flexible yet durable cover and coil. Like most AT-A-GLANCE planners, we provide you with premium paper that won’t bleed through.
For Alma, the Emily Ley 2021-2022 Academic Planner is perfect.
“I love the size and the simplicity of the Emily Ley Planner,” she says. For many people, Emily Ley is inspirational. In the front section of every planner, she has a few pages up front with her Simplified Process and Ideas. Additionally, Emily’s Simplified Tips appear throughout the weekly/monthly planner, helping you keep your life streamlined so the most important things stay front and center.
Rene, another AT-A-GLANCE planner fan, loves her Emily Ley Planner.
“It’s the perfect planner for my busy personal and work life,” she explains. The layout is as beautiful as her cover designs and it’s very spacious, so you can plan all the parts of your life.
The AT-A-GLANCE Emily Ley Collection of minimal, meaningful planners was created to help busy women live simpler lives. They feature her cover designs, special pages like The Process of Simplifying, How to Use the Planner, the Simplicity Challenge, and more.
The Badge Planner Collection is one of our most popular products. You might say it’s our pride and joy.
“I could not survive without this calendar,” explains Barbara. “My whole life is in front of me, and I can make plans accordingly.” Sue, another user agrees, saying she loves that she can see her whole month at once.
“I have been using this calendar for more than 10 years,” says Rachael, another Badge fan. “It is my favorite as it has all the elements I like…a monthly calendar view divided by weekly pages. It’s easy to carry with me without having to use microscopic writing, and they have really cute designs.”
