Choosing a Planner: Quo Vadis Review + Giveaway

Quo Vadis Planner
Quo Vadis Textagenda

As we continue looking at available options for planners and agendas, I’m excited to share the Quo Vadis line with you today. I had the opportunity to review two weekly planners and a daily planner from the Quo Vadis collection, and while these are not made specifically for moms like the momAgenda, there are a few features that I really love.

All Quo Vadis planners come with a sturdy, sewn binding that lays flat when opened. Many of them are refillable, with beautiful covers that you can use from year to year. With Clairefontaine paper (or an eco-friendly alternative if you prefer), you’ll love writing on these planner pages, and the tear-off corners make it easy to find the current day or week.

Rhodia Pocket Weekly NotebookThe Rhodia pocket notebook comes with a funky bright orange cover (or a more tame black cover), an elastic strap to keep it closed and a grid page each week for notetaking. At just 4″ x 6″, it’s the perfect planner to slip in your purse or diaper bag for on-the-go planning!

Prenote Weekly PlannerI really love the features of the Prenote weekly planner. It’s large 8 1/4″ x 11 5/8″ size leaves plenty of space for weekly planning, with daily columns for scheduling and notes and additional space for phone calls to make, faxes/emails to send, things to see and do and budget planning. It also features a unique year-at-a-glace section — with the entire year mapped out on just two pages — as well as a section for recording receipts/expenses and a separate address book that can be used year after year.

ABP-1 Daily PlannerIf you prefer a daily planner, the ABP/1 daily planner may be the right choice for you. With a daily schedule, large notes area and separate section for phone calls and emails, this planner leaves plenty of flexibility for organizing a busy life. Somehow they’ve managed to still fit the two-page year-at-a-glance section onto this smaller planner without it feeling cluttered or squished, and while it’s not quite as small as the Rhodia or as large as the Prenote, it combines the best of both into a convenient planner that can hold lots of notes and still be slipped into a purse or diaper bag.

There are dozens more Quo Vadis planners to choose from, each with its own unique features to fit your lifestyle and personality. If you’re not looking for daily schedule planning, these might not be the best choice for you, but if you have a schedule, appointments or activities to keep track of, they’re definitely a choice you’ll want to consider. One lucky Organizing Your Way reader will win a Quo Vadis planner of their choice (subject to availability)!
