Looking for a planner that will get your life sorted in 2021?
Well, you've definitely come to the right place.
If you're into productivity, being organised and trying to make each day count the Ronnie & Co 2021 Planner is the right choice for you.
And we love that there’s been a huge resurgence of ditching the technology (sorry phone!) and getting back to basics with pen and paper. There’s nothing quite like putting pen to paper and seeing your week mapped out for you. You can see exactly where you need to be. No more double-booking yourself or cramming too much into your day. This planner is your helping hand with getting things done and well, getting on with your day.
So what has the Ronnie & Co planner have that makes it so popular with 1,000’s of happy planner lovers?
Let us go into detail why this planner is so loved.
Vertical Weekly Layout
This is what sets the Ronnie & Co planner apart from others. The weekly layout makes sure you can see your whole week. There's not one appointment that can hide from you when you use a weekly planner. It’s the perfect snapshot to see your week in its entirety and lets you see what breathing space you have in your week. The design of the weekly layout is intentional, minimal and without fuss, so you can clearly see what matters to you – your time. Separate boxes in the layout ensure you start your day with the most important task. Things that you just can’t/don’t want to forget like your mum’s birthday, an anniversary or even a dinner party that you’ll be going to that night. Starting your day with the most important item of the day really sets your intention for the day and also makes sure you don’t have any really important events forgotten. This is also a space that people often use for daily gratitude’s or inspirational quotes to have a happy start to the day.
The day then progresses into the time components. Starting from 5am and going through to 8pm (with space for half hour time slots in-between) ensures that you never miss an appointment, or more importantly you can book in that coffee date with your friend. It’s so great having something to look forward to.
The end of the day is finished with another box to complete. This is where the fun stuff happens like meal planning, habit tracking or even notes for the next day to make sure that you set up your next day for success. Meal planning has definitely been the most popular use of these “end of day boxes” which is an absolute win-win. You know what you’re eating the next day, and you’re also saving money because you’ll be so organised and not tempted to order Uber Eats once again (so much money saved for sure!)
The monthly overview is brilliant in letting you see exactly what’s happening in your month. This is where the big picture planning takes place. Things like booking in your holidays, booking in self-care days and making sure you haven’t packed too much into your week when you end up having outings to go to every weekend. And as we all know, it’s great to be a social butterfly, but not so great when you just want to chill out with a pizza and binge watch Netflix. Planning out your month is super simple and you feel like you’re winning at life when you can see all of the cool stuff you’ve got planned (or even not planned!).
If you’re into goal setting or not even sure how to set goals, well our monthly goal setting pages will get you headed in the right direction in smashing your goals. These pages are once again, minimal and easy to follow. You won’t be needing to write a 10 step approach to setting goals, because really, who’s got time for that – not us! Setting goals don’t have to be huge, audacious things like walking 20km’s a day. They could be the super simple things like finally attacking some gardening that you’ve had on your “one day” list. Or even making sure you don’t forget to look after "you" by planning a fun day taking care of yourself to make sure your cup is full. And the best thing about our goal setting pages, the reward that you give yourself after completing your goal. It might be having an ice cream date with your kids or bestie, or even getting a manicure after you’ve completed your gardening project.
Our weekly planners come dot grid note pages at the back end of the planner. These pages are popular spots for not only brainstorming, but also for mind mapping and keeping notes of the books/tv shows you’d like to watch in 2021. We’ve also seen lots of creative drawing done in the note pages.
Now that we’ve talked about what’s inside, let’s take a look at the outside of our luxe planners.
3 Ribbon Page Marker
2021 is the first year we've introduced the ribbon markers. We received feedback from the Ronnie & Co planner community that they'd love to see this feature in their planner – so we delivered and our loyal planner lovers have been loving this new feature! The 3 ribbons can be used to mark the goal setting pages, the monthly calendar and then the most important page, your weekly spread.
Expandable back pocket
This is another new functionality that we’ve introduced in 2021. This back pocket can store a lots of things including loose paper, stickers, receipts and pharmacy scripts. Basically all of the important things that you need in your life that you don’t want to lose, but you don’t want it to be sitting loosely in your planner. The precious items can all be contained in this expandable back pocket that’s located in the back cover of the planner.
Introduction of new planner covers for 2021
That’s right! 2021 saw the introduction of a new look cover. This years cover is made of a vegan friendly leather (yeah!), is hard wearing, looks super cute with luxe foil print on the front cover, spine and back cover. Because of course, we want your planner to look good on your desk and handbag. Once again we introduced this notebook style of planner to our 2021 range because our Ronnie & Co community asked for it. We had hundreds of requests of making a planner that was more robust, more compact and more use friendly. And once again we delivered.
Our planners lay flat for ease of writing
Yep that’s right. Our planners have a specific type of binding called “lay flat” binding. This means they won’t close up on themselves and will lay beautifully flat on a desk.
What about the paper?
If you are into planners, this one is a biggie. Since the beginning we've always used 120gsm paper. And just to give you a comparison, photocopy paper that we commonly use is 80gsm. So our planners have beautifully thick white, smooth crisp pages which are a dream to write on. You will definitely not see last week’s appointments in your new week that’s for sure.
Planner for work
Lots of planner lovers bring their planners to work, leave them in their handbag, leave them on their kitchen bench or in their home office, get used by teachers and heaps of uni students love to use our planners too.
But which size?
This is the biggest question we get asked - Which size will be the best size for me? Our planners come in two sizes, A5 On The Go and A4 Desktop.
So if you like to take your planner with you and want a compact lightweight planner – the A5 Planner On The Go is absolutely the best choice for you.
If you’re more of a leave your planner on your desk at home person and have an extra busy life and like to schedule everything, then the A4 Desktop planner is the perfect planner for you. This A4 planner will be your life bible and you will refer to it multiple times a day to keep a track of your day.
Here’s a fun fact for you. 2021 is the third year we have produced our Ronnie & Co planners and we have hundreds and hundreds of gorgeous customers who have been with us since the very beginning – that’s how much they love our planner and once you find planner peace – well, you won’t look anywhere else.
It literally makes us so happy to see when we get repeat planner orders – thank you so much!
These planners are a labor of love for us and every year we pour our heart and soul into them. Their simplicity is such an important part of the planner. This is why we think the Ronnie & Co planner makes the best planner (in our humble opinion!).
Also, did you know that we have cute matching stickers that will take you planning to the next level? You can find them here
