"I never had true friends before the planner community. I was bullied growing up and it wasn't until I found the planner community that I made lasting friendships. Planning is my more than my creative outlet, it has allowed me to make and maintain friendships with friends that have become like family." - @amyraeplans5

What is National Planner Day?

August 1st is National Planner Day - the biggest planner party day of the year!

What is the mission of National Planner Day?

  • To CELEBRATE the power of planning and how it truly changes lives

  • To SUPPORT fellow planners, shops and brands by honoring their contributions and individuality

  • To SHARE resources which inspire, uplift and foster new connections in our amazing community

  • To GATHER TOGETHER in person or virtually and create lifelong friendships

  • To WELCOME new friends into the "planner world" and bond over our common interest and love of planning

  • To HAVE FUN!

Benefits of Planning

Helps You Focus

Writing things down engages different parts of your brain, helps you to more fully process your thoughts and creates better memory cues for later recall.

Also, it's so satisfying!

A Form of Self-Care

Did you know the average person checks their phone 150 times day? Physical planning provides a space to slow down, disconnect, and be more intentional

with your time and goals.

A Supportive Community

There's no community like the planner community!

No matter your planning preferences, we all share a common thread and who doesn't want a

community cheering them on?!
