It’s that time of year again my planner obsessed friends. The new 2018/2019 planners have just dropped (save $10 on your first order by clicking here) and although there aren’t TONS of changes in store, the new additions feel like a purposeful tweak to make the already fantastic planner layouts just a little bit better. So here’s what’s new in this year’s launch.
The 12 month page did away with the little corner flags and added these simple bars of color. I love using this page to track work accomplishments, so I usually just add month stickers to the top of the boxes.
One of the biggest changes are with the monthly pages. Gone are those four little circles and column lists and say hello to a good ol’ lined page. Personally I really liked the more structured note pages of last year’s book, but I understand the need to switch things back to make the page more universal. Plus I can always just design this page like the circle ones anyway.
One of my favorite tiny additions is a little calendar for the next month at the bottom of the monthly view. So simple, but such a valuable detail.
For the hourly layout they’ve added darker lines to mark off the hour sections. There’s been mixed reviews about this in the hourly planning community, but I tend to just cover up the times with stickers anyway so it shouldn’t be a big change for me. If you’re a simple planner though, this could be a really helpful feature to block of chunks of time.
In the back of the planners they’ve added a small contact page for important people’s info. I’m obsessed with this addition as there are always a few people I need to remember their addresses or contact info when I’m out and about. Or it can be used to track pen pals!
The coloring pages are sticking around for next year but with some fun new designs. One word: llamas.
There are of course stickers in the back of their planners, but they’ve included this page of decorative stickers this year and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so impressed with how well Erin Condren’s company pays attention to trends and their audience. Give the people what they want, and all that.
As for accessories, everything is in that new Woven Wonders pattern that’s throughout the planner. There are new rolls of washi tape, compliment cards, dashboards, and the thin sticky notes (great for to do lists on the sidebar of the weekly view).
They also have a new collection of sticky notes as well as a new sticker book. Check them all out on the main accessories page.
The most anticipated accessory of this release is the new Planner Folios. I go into more detail about how these work in the video below, but they’re like the old school planner pouches, but with a sturdy front panel you can use to store stickers and other on-the-go supplies. Definitely a unique spin with a lot of room for customization.
