2020 Comparisons

Our 2020 Planners are here and we are so excited to introduce them to you! Get ready to crush your goals with our Hustle and Fancy Pants Planners. If you are wondering which planner is right for you, this post will walk you through the details of each, and help you decide which one will become your new Best Friend! Honestly though, planners are such a personal preference and you might not know what works best for you until you try it. Here are some of the major differences that will help you narrow down your planner choice! 
       
All of our planners incorporate goal setting, projects, finances, health, and scheduling all into one. We believe that all areas of your life must work together in order to create a more balanced and productive lifestyle. Now you just need to decide which format will best help you achieve these goals!
      

Decision #1: Daily planner or Weekly planner?

If you are unsure which layout is right for you, CLICK HERE to get a sample download of our Daily and Weekly layouts. 
 
    

If Daily, which one?

If you know you prefer a Daily layout, then you have the option of Hustle Daily Spiral, Hustle Daily Casebound, or Fancy Pants Daily. Let’s take a look at some of the major differences between these 3 planners.
 
 
     

Many people prefer a spiral planner because you can fold the planner in half and only see one page at a time. The spiral also gives you the option to add any of our downloads to your planner using our Add-A-Page for spiral. Check out this video for more information on how to add pages to your Hustle Daily spiral planner.
  
Spiral planners require a little extra care when on the go as to not bend the spiral. If you know for sure that spiral planners are your jam, then we have a new Hustle Daily B.F.F. Carryall to protect your best friend while you are on the go. The carryall is also great for Hustle Daily Casebound as well.
The Hustle Casebound is our most recent addition to the planner line and has quickly become a favorite of many due to its lay flat design and durability. Because of the binding, there is no option to add pages, if you are wanting to add pages, the spiral might be a better option for you.
   
So, now to compare Hustle Daily and Fancy Pants Daily…...
   
Both Hustle Daily and Fancy Pants have the same size pages, 5.5" x 8.5". Hustle Daily weekends share a page, but with the Fancy Pants, weekends each have their own page. If you are super busy on the weekends,Fancy Pants might be a better fit for you.

If you are someone who prefers a planner with customization, the ability to add and remove pages as needed, then Fancy Pants is the way to go. It offers custom inserts for Realtors, Direct Sales Consultants, PhotographersTeachers. We also have inserts for Extra NotesContacts, and a Weekly Add-in insert which is great for those who prefer a daily format but also want to keep a weekly rolling to-do list and move it from day to day.
Fancy Pants was designed with portability in mind, so although the planner comes with a full year of content, the binder holds up to 3 months of daily pages at one time, but ALL of the tabs and ALL 12 monthly overviews, so that you can still plan your year in advance. Hustle Daily has the full year of planning pages jam packed into one planner, but this is due to the fact that Saturday and Sunday share a page, so there are fewer pages all together.
Now, what if you know you already have a binder that you love, but are looking for a new planner? We’ve got you covered! You can purchase our A5 Fancy Pants Inserts here.
 
So let’s recap, shall we…...
Fancy Pants Daily - full year of content included but binder holds up to 4 months of daily pages at one time (but all 12 monthly overviews), weekends have their own page, customizable, additional inserts available, portable and fits nicely in your purse.
Hustle Daily Casebound - full year of content in one planner, weekends share a page, planner lays flat and is a more durable option if you are always on the go!
Hustle Daily Spiral - full year of content in one planner, weekends share a page, planner can fold in half to only see one day at a time, and takes up less space on your desk.
 
 
   

If You Like Weekly...

If you prefer a Weekly layout, then you have the option of Hustle Weekly or Fancy Pants Weekly. There is a noticeable difference between these two planners…
 
 
Our Weekly planners are great for those who prefer to see their full week at a time and don’t need as much space for daily checklists. ALL Weekly planners now have a MONDAY start!
 
Hustle Weekly SPIRAL AND CASEBOUND is a larger format, the time slots go from 4:30am - 10:00pm and have space for daily to-do's, in addition to perforated tear out weekly lists. This planner is a MONDAY start with full time slots for Saturday and Sunday. Hustle Weekly also has the full year of planning pages all bound together.
 
      
Just as with the Fancy Pants Daily, the weekly option is great If you are someone who prefers a planner with customization, the ability to add and remove pages as needed, then Fancy Pants is the way to go. The Weekly Fancy Pants time slots go from 5:30am - 8:00pm M-F and 9-5 on the weekends. It was designed with customization in mind, and although the planner comes with a full year of content, the binder holds up to 6 months of weekly pages at one time, AND ALL of the tabs and ALL 12 monthly overviews so you can still plan your year in advance. 
And, again, if you already have a binder that you love, but are looking for a new planner? We’ve got you covered! You can purchase our A5 Fancy Pants Inserts here.
The Fancy Pants weekly also includes a spread in between each weekly spread for meal planning, Grocery Lists, Weekly Priorities and to-do's.
We a re excited about our new Weekly Dashboard Notepad -- A week at a glance!
