Choosing the Edit for You

Choosing the Edit for You

The most common question I get emailed, DMed and even called about is “Which is the right Edit for me?” And while I love the one-on-one interaction with you gals, I thought I would address this here for all of you! 

 

First step: 

Pick a cover! As I have explained in my previous post, I put a lot of time into the design of Edit covers for each year, making sure that not only I love all the covers, but also that there is a cover out there that everyone will love and want. Take your time (although not too much time - favourites do sell out) to look and fall in love with the cover - after all it has got to last a year.

If you love them all, here is what I suggest:

  • Which cover suits the mood/vibe that you want to exude for your year? Bright and fun, on-trend and ready for action, cool, calm and collected. 
  • I also suggest choosing a word for your year eg determined, joy, focused and then pick the cover that speaks to your word theme for the year.
  • Go with your gut.
  • Go with your first choice - it’s usually right! 

 

Secondly:

Determine your needs, and look at which Edit will suit these needs best. 

We have three options for The Edit:

 

The Monthly Edit

Simple yet sleek design throughout.

The Daily Edit 

 

The only planner you’ll need to get you organised for the new year. 

It’s got it all - monthly goal setting, a dedicated day per page (including Saturday and Sunday) split between your daily to-do list and your daily schedule from 6am - 8pm (because we know days are longer than 9am-5pm), a prompt box to start the day and set your focus or intention, and a clean and simplified layout so that your life takes centre stage.

Choosing an Edit is such a personal choice, it really is down to lifestyle and needs. While The Weekly and Daily Edits are A5, the Monthly Edit is A4 so that is a big thing to note, and the next big deciding factor is whether you use two Edits or one - I personally have a Daily and Monthly Edit to keep track of my crazy, business, planned to a T life. A friend of mine is obsessed with the Weekly Edit - she doesn’t have loads to keep track of in terms of work, and only has one child so the “family schedule” hasn’t totally taken over her life (yet). 

 

Our planners are proudly designed and made in South Africa by hearts and hands that care - the quality is incredible and the paper is FSC certified. Each Planner will arrive in a recyclable box with a eco friendly natural cotton pouch for you to keep your planner protected in or to use when you travel to work or your favourite co-working space.

I created the new planners to spark joy and simplify your every day and I know, which ever one you choose, it will do that just for you!
