Let me tell you a secret though.

It doesn’t have to be so hard. As a favorite teacher of mine used to say, you don’t have to remember everything if you know where to read it.

And this is where planners come to your rescue. So whether you’re already experienced and have a few completed journals on your shelves, or you have never had one before and you want to give them a try, this is the article for you.

Here are the best planners for moms to start you on the right foot.

Best planners for working moms

Being able to work from home sounds great before you have kids. But after this moment, things get a little more complicated. If you want to achieve maximum productivity you need to plan your day in advance and keep your focus.

This list of the best planners for working moms will do just that, whether you’re working from home or at the office.

Best planners for busy moms

If you need a more general planner to manage the never-ending tasks at home then you should opt for one of the detailed planners available.

Still, more pages don’t always mean more value. Thus, I’ve carefully selected the two planners I found most complete and useful in a mom’s daily life.

All-in-one Digital Planner

This all-in-one planner is most suitable for those looking to access it on their phone, tablet, or another device.

If you prefer a printed-out version of your planner then you should check this one out.

This one has it all and comes at a very reasonable price.

But what I like most about it is that it’s more than your average household organizer.

And it’s suitable not only for current moms but also for moms-to-be with templates such as ovulation tracker, hospital bag checklist, and newborn essentials.


Best stress-relief planners

Recently, I’ve noticed I’m overstressed. Not that I’m complaining that I now have two beautiful, healthy, and energetic daughters.

But the more responsibilities and chores are indeed taking their toll on me, so I tried to find additional ways to take the stress off my shoulders. Here are a couple of planners that are focused on lifting the stress of your shoulders.

Stress Relief Planner

This is the planner I started using a while ago and so far it’s been a great success for me.

Inside you’ll find everything I found to be useful in terms of calming your mind and organizing your daily life.

Aside from the usual yearly/monthly/daily spreads, you will also find:

  • Stress triggers identifier
  • Mood/Sleep/Meditation trackers
  • Exercise tracker and water intake challenge
  • Lists for your personal stress-relievers and books you want to read
  • Stress dump and journaling pages, and more.


Mindfulness Journal

If you don’t need the daily planning part of a journal but want to focus solely on self-care and reflection, then you may like this interactive mindfulness journal.

Structured as a workbook, it helps you understand stress, find the triggers that cause it, and eventually overcome it.

Its 33 pages are full of ideas, techniques, and activities all focused on eliminating stress.


Coloring Daily Planner

Coloring is a great way to soothe your busy mind.

And if you love adult coloring books then you’ll definitely fall in love with this planner.

While the templates inside are rather basic, what makes this planner unique is that you can color all the pages. And if this doesn’t seem enough, there are also 12 full-size coloring pages.


Best budget planners

If you’re on a limited budget, there are still a lot of quality options for you to consider.

Here are a few of the best planners for moms under $5.

Daily, Weekly & Monthly Planner

Simple yet practical, this minimalistic planner has everything you need to organize a busy schedule.

It will help you manage your to-do list, priorities, habits, and daily schedule.

Plus, you can use it both printed out or digitally.


Work Day Organizer

If you’re looking for a single page to strap to your fridge door and glance whenever you need to, this is surely the template you need.

It offers space for your schedule, to-do list, tasks, notes, and contacts and you can print it as many times as you need.

Replace it daily or use it for recurring tasks, it’s entirely up to you.


Best DIY planners

While I do appreciate the value of ready-made planner templates, for me half the pleasure comes from setting up my planner with a pen and a ruler in hand.

If you don’t mind spending a little time setting your planner up, here are the best notebooks for DIY fans.

LEUCHTTURM1917 – Medium A5 Dotted

This is the planner I’ve been using 4 years in a row and I’m absolutely loving it.

The dotted pages make it extremely easy to draw any spreads you want. And there are 251 of them so you have enough space to fully unleash your creativity.

The blank content at the beginning, the numbered pages, and the two page markers also make it super easy to navigate.


Moleskine Classic Notebook, Dotted

The best alternative to the classic Leuchtturm1917 notebooks is offered by Moleskine.

They also come in a variety of colors, with the option for dotted grid, and different sizes.

The 208 pages are made of quality paper and held by a durable binding that allows the notebook to open flat easily.


Best hard cover planners

If you don’t have a printer at home or you don’t have the time to customize your own planner, you may opt for a ready-made solution. And this doesn’t mean that you need to settle for old-fashioned plain organizers as well.

Here are a few of the best planners for moms that come ready to grab the pen.

2022 Weekly Planner, Dated

If you’re looking for a complete solution where you can start planning as soon as you get your hands on your new planner, this is a great choice for you.

It’s simple yet practical and small enough to fit in a purse.

It’s fully dated for 2022, has a year-at-a-glance section, 12 monthly spreads, 52 weekly spreads, and 14 pages for random notes.


Clever Fox Planner

If you want the complete motivation+productivity experience instead of a standard schedule management system, I recommend you check out the Clever For Planner.

Aside from the calendar sections, the planner also includes:

  • Yearly goals for different areas in your life
  • Vision board
  • Weekly habit trackers
  • Weekly goals, to-do lists, priorities, and wins
  • Gratitude and self-discovery sections

The planner comes undated so you can start at any time, however it is made to last for a whole year.


Daily Panda Planner

Another detailed planner that will help you plan your day, note important events, and run smoothly through motherhood and daily chores.

Inside you’ll find monthly sections with areas for habits, focus, planning, and end-of-month review. The weekly spreads include planning sections, goals, and projects that you’ll be focusing on.

The most detailed spreads, the daily pages, include morning review with gratitude, affirmations, and things you’re excited about; daily priorities, schedule, and tasks; and an end-of-the-day review.


Must have planner accessories

If you want to keep it simple, all you need to keep a planner or a bullet journal is a notebook and a pen. But let’s be honest, accessories make it a lot more fun.

So without going into details, here are my favorite planner accessories that I use with my journals (and a few I wish to get soon).
