We are literally a couple of days away from the new year and ringing in 2017, so I thought this would be the perfect time to go ahead and share my thoughts on the 2017 KITLife Planner with all of you.  I’m a huge lover of KITLife Planners, this particular planner being my fourth that I own.  Each year I have found a new way to use the planner and I’m so overjoyed with the changes that KITLife has made to the planner that I’m excited to share it with all of you.  The KITLife planner is a daily planner layout that allows you to literally grab life by the hands and make it wonderful.  The KITLife planner is more than just a planner, but a community – encouraging women to be productive, grateful, healthy, giving and live a life full of intention.  This Planner has made such a difference in how I do things daily and yearly and I’m going to share it with all of you.

The KITLife Planner retails for $58.00.  I know, I know… many have told me in years past that that is such a hefty cost for something that you may throw out at the end of each year.  But here’s what I have to say about it… “Life is an Investment and to make it fruitful, we need to invest in the proper tools to help it grow.” (Yes, I wrote that… lol)  A Planner is just that, a tool to help keep you organized.  The KITLife Planner is a daily planner that consists of a monthly and daily layout.  I find that a daily layout is my favorite for the lister in me, I love writing out my daily to-do’s and track my progress as I complete each task.

There are three different types of planner covers available for 2017 – The Classic Edition (which is what I am sharing with you), the Crown Edition ($72.00 – the Gorgeous White with Gold Foil cover) and The Festival Edition ($65.00 a fun cover with pink, blue and purple triangles).  Each Planner also offers you the opportunity to add in additional pages to customize your planner (at an additional cost).  The pages include:  Note Add-In, Graph Add-In, Budget Add-In, Direct Sales Add-In, Direct Sales Team Add-In and Teach Add-In.  These add-ins must be ordered at the time you order your planner.  Each plan is estimated to ship in 5-7 business days after placing your order.

So, let’s get into all the fun details.  The 2017 KITLife Planner has a new hardcover which feels much like suede.  The Team at KITLife call it the Velvet Technique in printing the cover.  It has a really cool and smooth texture that make this planner feel so luxe.  I absolutely love it and I LOVE that the planner cover is now a hardcover instead of their laminated cover like they have had in previous years.  This new hardcover makes the planner much more durable and protects the pages within.  The KITLife Planner also comes with a movable dashboard as it did last year.  I really enjoyed this option last year, but sadly, my dashboard didn’t last me past the 2 month mark.  I’m pretty brutal.  But, KITLife made some revisions and now has a very sturdy design that’s perfect for the 2017 planner.  I love that it is still easy to move and flexible without being too flimsy.  It’s a great addition and I love it.

The planner is smaller in size in comparison to past years.  Honestly, I LOVE this because it was a bit cumbersome to take my KIT with me on the go.  While I still do not take it with me usually, I love that I have that option should I decide to do so.  While it is a bit smaller in size – you still get the same amount of writing space as you did in previous years.  The monthly calendar spread also offers the same amount of space for writing which is great.

The Daily pages offer a variety of different options for daily planning.  A Checklist that also has a place for daily tracker stickers (available through KITLife), The Big 3 for Top To-Do’s each day, Time Slots from 6am to 8pm for appointments and time management listing, Wellness Tracker (to help keep track of water intake, weight and exercise and Gratitude to list what you are thankful for each day or special events that occurred.  Each weekly page also includes a Quote by various people (one of my favorite parts of this planner) and you still get a Doodle Break that is listed on the months that have a spare page before the monthly layout.  These doodle breaks are what I use to jot down any notes for the month that I need to reference like conversations on the phone, etc.

The Daily Pages have been revised in comparison to previous years which I LOVE.  I really needed an area to list my appointments and I love that there is an option for that now.  Below is a photo of last year’s layout for the daily section.  As you can see, the Fit & Fab Tip is no longer on the page, however, I still have the same amount of writing page, but I have it organized in sections to really list out what I need for the day.  I LOVE IT!

Saturdays and Sundays are still sharing one page with the “Peek at the Week” for the week following which I enjoy.  I really liked that option on my previous KITLife Planners, so I do like that it was continued.  But, I love the layout for this year’s 2017 planner much more.  I think it’s just streamlined overall and makes it so much more appealing to my eyes to keep organized.  The Peek at the Week is my place where I tend to plan out my blog posts for the following week, so I like that it’s still included.

KIT = Keeping It All Together

The KITLife Planner has a great Welcome Page for each month that talks about Wellness, Food and Extra Tidbits to keep you motivated and you still get your Quarter Check-ins every 3 months as you have in previous planners.  I love the simplicity in this planner in that it takes you to the last day of the month without adding extra bulk, unless you purchased any of the add-ins I mentioned previously.  At the end of the planner you get a paper pocket on the back cover (I’ll be using this for receipts for donations) as well as a zip pouch which I plan to use to hold my post-its and stickers.

The KITLife offers gorgeous colors through out and is perfect for someone who loves a decoration or color but doesn’t really do the decorating themselves.  The planner through out offers a theme that really is visual and perfect for inspiring you to keep on top of your tasks.  I love that this is overall a Functional Planner for me.  Each year I use several planners and the KITLife is what I consider to be my “Hub-all” planner, where I plan my days out while keeping myself on task.  I list everything in this planner from my daily life (quick excerpts) and my to-do list as well as my blog and youtube channel tracking.

 All of the KITLife Planners are designed, printed, assembled and packaged in the United States.  The 2017 Planner is 8.5″ wide by 8.75″ tall and is less than an 1″ thick.  Each planner is bound with a metal coil which is approximately 2″ in diameter.  The Planner pages are printed on 70# paper, which is sturdy and has held up to me using highlighters, felt tip pens and even some of my markers.  And, this is a traditional yearly planner that begins on January 1st and ends on December 31st.

Walk through the product layout and get an overview in my video here:

The KITLife Planner is one of my favorites because it is something I can use for my entire life’s organization.  Like I’ve mentioned before, I use several planners at any given moment, but my KITLife Planner is my hub for EVERYTHING – my personal and family schedule & appointments, to-do’s, blog and YouTube and so much more.  Since it is not quite 2017 yet, I’ll come back in a few months and share how I have been utilizing this planner so you can get an idea on what might work for you.

So – what about you?  Are you a planner addict like me?  Do you think this planner would work for you in planning and keeping you organized?

  1. How cute! I usually just carry a small pocket-size planner in my purse so that it’s with me all the time.

    • I use several different planners each year, this being my largest one since it’s daily. I also carry a small one in my purse and actually use a ring bound binder planner as a wallet. 🙂

  2. I once was in the planner phase in middle school where I was OBSESSED, but I just can’t get into it again… This is a gorgeous planner, though! <3

    • I did a lot of planner in middle school too… but found that while I do enjoy doing everything the digital way via phone, electronic and computer, that there is just something about writing it down myself… I feel like I accomplish more 😉 It is gorgeous.

  3. I don’t use a planner but I’m always tempted by them. This doesn’t seem that expensive when you think that you’ll use it every single day.

    I don’t use a planner, but I do make lots of lists! This is a very pretty planner!

    This planner looks so comprehensive! PS I love your blog’s new look!!

    This is awesome – it’s like an organized journal/diary, which I love. I was using a color crush last year and this year I upgraded to an Erin Condren. I love planners. 🙂

  7. Wow, that planner looks awesome. It’s so all in one, which is awesome (I have two planners a year typically). I also really like that it has a place for the top three priorities.

    I like planner but I need very simple ones. So this is a little pricy for my planner needs but it’s really pretty

  9. Oh my goodness, this planner looks like it has EVERYTHING!!! Love it! I am trying to get into planning for this year — to help keep me sane, lol. I picked up a simple one at Michaels, but if I am able to pull it off and actually plan things, I’ll have to look into this one. 😀

  10. This looks like a wonderful planner. I need a new one but I can’t decide which one I want! I think I’m just going to go with another Happy Planner.

    This is a beautiful planner! I used to be a die-hard planner person years ago, but I’ve not used one is probably 6 years if not more. I’ve become the sticky note queen- that’s something, right? Hahahaha!

    This looks like a really great planner option. I love having something I can see more of the week at once, so I’ve been using the Happy Planner.

    I tend to write a lot of stuff down so having an individual page for each weekday is great! I’m currently using a moleskin planner but will check this one out for next year. Thanks for the tip!
