I waited a bit before buying the cover, but I wish I had got it sooner! It's worth every penny. I feel luxurious every time I use it, and I don't mind it laying out in my living room because it's just so pretty. I've always hated the aesthetics of most planners, but this one is so quality and so minimal. It's such a pleasure to use every single time. I know it will wear well and last for many years to come!
This planner cover is fantastic- super flexible and adaptable to what I need to carry along with my annual and monthly booklets (pens, bills, love notes from my boys, even extra notebooks if needed) and let's face it, it is just gorgeous. I own the cognac and I love it.
The Cover is such a gorgeous, hard working product! It's so dreamy & soft, absolutely gorgeous, but holds up well to the demands of mom life with littles. It wears so well, and is totally worth getting!
“I've tried so many planners...”
I've tried many other planners, but this is the only one I've actually used consistently, week in and week out.
I have been looking for a planner system that works with my business and personal life and I finally found what I was imagining.
Paper planners have never worked well for me.
Everything I’ve tried in the past has seemed too structured and hasn’t worked well with the master calendar I keep in my phone. However, I decided to try this after listening to a few of the podcasts and experimenting with the team’s recommended time blocking activities. It has been a game changer.
I use the week layout at the start of every week to visualize the rhythm of each week and braindump my to-do list. Then I use the day spreads to plan out my day and find intentional time to get things done. I love that this planner has helped me get organized and get things done without feeling boxed into a certain layout or filling out every day. If I ever have a light week, I can even skip it without wasting pages!
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who needs to declutter their brain and stay functional during a busy season of life.
As a busy mom who keeps all the receipts and budgets, plans meals, and does school planning, I had been looking for a planner that I could fully customize. This is perfect and so pretty I don’t mind having it out on my counter!
I really appreciate how in depth you can go with each day and week, but not be overwhelmed.
I've kept a planner religiously for 10 years. I did bullet journaling for 2 years solid, but when the kids came I just couldn't do the layouts anymore.
I am LOVING the Evergreen because it meets you where you are. You can utilize it as much or as little as needed day by day.
It was designed by two women who are in completely different stages of life than I'm in right now. We each have different goals, motivations, and personalities.
But this planner makes me feel like it was literally designed for ME.
I have tried almost every planner ever made and the Evergreen Planner is the only one that has worked for me.
I have struggled with organization and planning, but my brain needs it. The planner along with the super helpful info on the blog had helped me have my most organized/productive year yet!
Your planners have helped me run not only my business side, working on my dissertation, but also help me run my house for my family so well.
Thank you for what you do!!
I'm a planner JUNKIE and I have been lovvvving this new system from the Evergreen Planner.
I use it daily, and it has kept me organized, on track, and motivated.
Best planner I've ever used—and I'm a real planner snob (ask anyone 🙊🙈)
What makes the Evergreen Planner different?
The Evergreen Planner was built from the ground up with these convictions in mind:
1. You actually DO have enough time to do everything you're called to. You just need a tool to help you clarify your priorities and then manage all the moving parts.
2. Time is too precious to waste feeling lost in your planner, anxiously trying to locate what actually matters. A good planner will launch you into confident action as soon as possible.
3. Our innovative dutch door layout empowers you to plan your day in context. Now you can prepare for what's urgent while still carving out space for what's important.
4. We each have beautifully different lives, and yet the same 24 hours in a day. You need a dynamic hub for your brain that can be infinitely personalized until it fits your life like a glove.
5. We exist to help you accomplish your time-management goals. Through our many resources, we're committed to walking alongside you on your deeply important journey to personal mastery.
I didn't realize my payment info needed updating and when it was time for my Classic subscription to ship...well, it didn't. I realized I hadn't gotten my order two days before my Classics ran out. Fortunately, my daughter had a Lite planner booklet and gave it to me to try. I just spent some time setting it up and I love it. This planner is the right amount of space for me to sort out my life. For me, the Classic has too much room and I feel compelled to fill all of it up, even when I don't really have anything to schedule. I'm looking forward to the next few weeks -- seeing how the Lite works in real life.
I purchased this because I have a hybrid work schedule and needed flexibility to plan household chores and projects. The Lite version provides weekly flexibility for these tasks and more. I combine this with the monthly planner. The monthly is used for my budget by paycheck. Great combination! I hope the Lite planner will be included in future Evergreen planner subscriptions.
Most planners set you up for idealistic perfectionism. Either an inflexible standard that you *do* stick to but that doesn't allow for quick pivots as God brings changes and providential circumstances into your life, OR an idealistic idea of how your life should look that you try and fail at, resulting in despairing that you can ever be "disciplined". The evergreen planner disrupts that in the best of ways! Bringing a goal setting system (ROOTED Goals) and a gorgeous planner that's adaptable for real life together into one cohesive system. This planner is the only one that has made actual sense to my ADHD brain! It beautifully allows for the times I feel the Holy Spirit's nudge to pivot or pause so I can have a needed conversation or when things outside of my control happen and change my plans. Instead of feeling like I need to toss my plan out of the window, I can gracefully pivot and not lose focus. This planner has, hands down, changed my life more than any other productivity tool or book.
I’m in love with this system! I tried out the free printable and joined the first free month online Collective and learned so much about how to really organize ALL THE THINGS and make my days work EFFICIENTLY! I think the best thing about this is that at the end of the day I feel like I was in control - even when things went off track - I knew my top priorities and felt like I triumphed regardless. I can’t tell you how good winning feels, try the system and you’ll understand. I have time to actually enjoy a cup of coffee without feeling guilty because touching down midday in my planned is scheduled 💕 This system takes every ball you juggle and gives it it’s own space so you can really focus on the overall and the individual balls together so nothing gets dropped. Phenomenal. Mind blowing. Required system for anyone serious about effectively managing their time.
The Classic Day Planner really helps me to be more thoughtful in how I approach my daily planning. I bought this because I was looking for something fresh with room for my personal creativity. I love the intentional spaces to plan for my own self-care. My life is extremely full and sometimes these things fall by the wayside. This planner system is helping to bring order to life, while leaving the "white space" to be flexible for the detours of my day. Thank you!
When I started Taming Your To Do List, I was worried that so many of the things floating around in my head (necessary things, different anxieties, ideal projects, etc) wouldn't translate to a good to-do list and just be a text-block of overwhelm- but in working through this guide, the Evergreen Team takes the mess of a mental load and breaks it down into approachable categories, and then breaks these down further into thematic and temporal lists- then all is given an appropriate and useful place within the Evergreen planner system. At the end of it, my entire 'braindump' page was migrated to and organized place and time!
I bought it because I always need to see the big picture (the year and month) along with the smaller one (day and week). I use it to refresh my memory about goals, especially if the season called for a shift from one kind of activity or focus, to a different rhythm. It helps me to not be on autopilot about my life. I've also used it to keep mementos and document what I did, or what was moving or funny. I love paging back and looking through what I wrote (or kept). It's a sweet way to keep a calendar:)
The Rooted Goals Workbook takes the reader through concrete, written processes to discern and develop real and appropriate goals for your reality. This is an authentically Christian approach to goal setting, abiding in the truth that we are in the world but not of the world- we have time, talent, and treasure given to us by God that we are responsible for! To utilize not for ourselves but for the greater glory of God. This book is so encouraging in that respect; I speak as a SAHM who sometimes really struggles to remember and live this in the day-to-day. But using the Evergreen Planner everyday is helping me. St. Theresa of Avila said that “God goes with you amidst the pots and pans,” encouraging that it isn’t just lofty goals and epic tasks that bring us closer to Him- it’s the daily habits that shape our lives and spiritual dispositions. Having listened to the Make Space to Thrive podcast episodes, and read through the Rooted Goals Workbook, I am encouraged, and have solid direction, and specific tasks to help me live in a ROOTED way.
This was a super helpful, concise, walk-through of the Evergreen system. How to leverage the design of the planner, including the Dutchdoor (my favourite feature!).
Breathing room is what comes to mind when I think about the Rooted Goals Workbook. It is a gentle and thorough process to walk you through the myriad of plans and to-dos usually running around in one's head looking for order and timing! I especially appreciate the way this tool helps you root what you need, want, and hope to do in who you are. Taking into account your season and what is important for you. Herein lies the gentle and helpful wisdom of this small wisdom-packed workbook. This gentle wisdom is present in all the tools this lovely brand makes.
The goal-setting pages are the parts I would normally avoid in my other planners. Why make a bunch of unattainable New Year’s resolutions anyway? I felt like I would just be confronted with my failures all the time.
The Rooted Goals workbook and the ROOTED approach to goal setting is changing that for me. I’m using the digital copy of the workbook and although I haven’t finished it yet I have listened to all the podcast episodes and am so excited to use this tool! The encouragement to pursue God’s calling and purpose for my life (keeping in mind where He has placed me already) is so freeing and inspiring. Focusing on “next right step” goals instead of “wishful thinking” or super lofty goals has encouraged me that goal-setting CAN be useful and practical.
Thank you, Team Evergreen, this is just what I needed!
The word "Goal" reminded me of how many times I have not followed through with mine. But looking back, my goals were not truly anchored to a strong foundation and the way I was trying to accomplish those goals was not realistic. I highly recommend listening to the "Make Space to Thrive" podcast episode 17. I could not stop nodding my head as they explained the ROOTED goals system. My prayer has been to steward my time well. This goal system is a key component to doing that. I cannot recommend enough to take a moment to listen or read about this goal system. It is like no other I have ever experienced and I absolutely love it is God centered.
...and I have tried many! What I love: dutch doors allow me to see the overview of the week and plans for that day all at once. There are no time slots, I can customize this depending on my season in life. Free space allows me to make this my own and use it as needed. I also love to come back to this space at the end of the day and fill in what really happened or special memories. The top three: to do lists can get overbearing, the top three helps me focus and prioritize. Lastly, I love the habit tracker. I am very aware how important it is for me to start incorporating better habits and this is a great way to see it daily.
I’ve always hated goal setting and found it a pointless exercise (I prefer to just make plans or task lists), but this system is different! It’s taught me that goals don’t have to be big, lofty ideas - they can simply be identifying the next right things to focus on in this season of life, then figuring out how to make those things happen in the context of my life. I also seriously love that it fits in my planner! I feel like half the battle with previous goalsetting has been having it in a format that didn’t match up with the planner system I was using. So I’m much more likely to stick with this and refer back to it. Clari and Shelby did a beautiful job putting the system together!
I love how flexible this book is! Our family has a master online calendar + a kitchen whiteboard calendar, so I use this for my personal monthly inspiration. We’re Catholic, so I use the calendar section for feast days and prayer reminders, and the opposite page for seasonal goals, prayer of the month and daily reminders. It’s such a nice spread to look at each morning as I do my daily planning. I also use the next two blank pages of the annual for goal and rhythm work - so handy to have all in one place!
