If you don’t know this about me yet, I’m obsessed with office supplies. Fun planners, paperclips, notebooks and even colorful staples catch my eye. I feel an urge to be creative and productive when I’m using something inspiring and well, office supplies, just do that for me! Mid-year is the best time to reassess your planner needs. Is the planner you are currently using cutting it for you anymore? Do you feel like you need more “umph” or just want something cute and fun to inspire you to actually get organized? Is it time to look at mid-year planners that will stretch into all the way through to the following year?

Mid-year planners are so much better than academic planners! These featured planners run July 2017 through December 2018.  They are not academic focused, which means you won’t have space for homework items and the target audience will skew a bit older with their graphics and overall appeal of the planner. These mid-year planners will have you organized and back on track to a successful year in no time!

The Best Mid-Year Planners for July 2017- December 2018

Me & My BIG Ideas 365 Planners

I love the look and feel of the Me & My BIG Ideas 365 planners.  These mid-year planners feature full monthly views as well as daily views with plenty of space for writing. Additionally, you can expand your planner to be as functional for you as it can be with fun kits and expansion packs like sticker packs, fitness planners, home organization planner, budget planners and more! Don’t worry – if you expand too much, they even have larger expansion or expander rings for you to make your planner larger!

Erin Condren Hardbound Planners

If you haven’t heard of Erin Condren Planners, you might be living under a rock! Erin Condren is the ‘gold standard’ of planners – you can personalize them, add fun tabs and stickers to them – and basically, plan your entire life with them. The only problem is, they can get SUPER pricey! However, the Erin Condren Hardbound Planners are much more affordable – starting around $30, depending on the size you purchase.  These planners run from July 2018 to December 2017 (18 months) and are absolutely beautiful.

If you can’t tell by my excitement over just telling you about all of these great planner options, I’m a bit obsessed. There’s nothing like a virtual trip though all-things Amazon office supplies, a real trip to Office Max or – gasp! – a trip to the office supplies section of TJ Maxx! I can never come out of there without buying something new!
