2017-18 Midyear Planner Comparisons

Okay… so now the struggle just got real. Since our last midyear line we have added another planner, Hustle Weekly, and have made some changes to our Legit Planner, which you can read more about here
For our 2017-18 midyear planners we have Hustle Daily, Hustle Weekly, Fancy Pants, and Legit. So if you are asking yourself, “Which planner is right for me?” This post will walk you through the differences in our planners and help you decide which one should become your new Best Friend! Honestly though, planners are such a personal thing that you might not know what works best for you until you try. Here are some of the major differences though that will help you to narrow down your planner choice! 
All of our planners incorporate goals, projects, finances, health, and scheduling into one. We believe that all areas of your life work together in order to create a more balanced lifestyle. So now you just need to decide which format will best help you achieve this balance:)
Our spiral bound planners...
For the 2017-18 midyear line we have 2 versions of our Hustle Planner: Hustle Daily and Hustle Weekly.  Our Business Hustle is only offered during the fiscal year (Jan-Dec.).
1. Hustle Daily – This was our original STARTplanner. A full 12 months of content all bound together. 
2. Hustle Weekly –  It is the same content as Hustle Daily but it has weekly spreads instead of daily pages. Hustle Weekly also does NOT have a Weekly Groceries section. It is also bigger in overall size but not quite as thick. 
Add on accessories for Hustle include Pen PalBookmark (Daily & Weekly), Bestie, and you can even add pages to a spiral bound planner using an arc punch.

Our binder planner…
We also have an A5 Fancy Pants Planner! Fancy Pants is a daily planner and comes with a year’s worth of content pages. We have 4 options of binder colors for you to choose from:  Ocean Blue, Nautical Navy, Blush, and Stone Gray. The biggest difference between Hustle and Fancy Pants is Fancy Pants has full daily pages for Saturday and Sunday whereas Hustle Daily weekends share a page. 

Fancy Pants Planner is a binder format of our Hustle Planner. Created to allow for customization as well as portability, Fancy Pants is designed to hold up to 3-4 months of daily pages at a time as well as all of the tabs and monthly overviews so you can still plan your year in advance. This gives you full control of the size of your binder and allows you to still plan out your year and months in advance.

Fancy Pants offers add-ons/accessories such as a Bookmark, Break-It-Up tab dividers (pictured below), and custom inserts for RealtorsDirect SalesPhotographersTeachers, StudentBusiness PlanningExtra NotesContactsColoring Pages, and more!
