Consider using one of these old-school monthly planners to keep track of important activities and events without having to stay glued to your smartphone or computer. Most also include handy specific-use pages, such as for contact info. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

July 22, 2019:
It seems like daily life is getting ever busier. To help manage the chaos, many people prefer a large paper calendar/planner over the small view available on a tablet or smartphone. A good planner lets you see an entire month at a time, and even shows dates for future months to make long-term planning easier. They need to have sufficient space for writing appointments and notes, and the cover should be reasonably durable to survive being stuffed in a bag.
In this update, we made sure all our selections were for 2019, and in some cases, both 2019 and 2020. We added a crosshatch-leather option, the Artfan Teal, because it's good looking, durable, and includes all the extras you want in a good planner, such as pages for contacts and notes.
