A new year often comes with the urge to reorganize and declutter. For many, that means picking out a brand-new planner to help make each day as productive as possible. The best monthly planners for 2023 will have space for writing out daily tasks, monthly calendar spreads to keep an eye on everything at once, and some sort of habit tracker to keep you on top of your game.
If you want to save the most on a planner, definitely look for softcover planners — they can start as low as $10. Comparatively, most hardcover planners usually start at $50. Also, planners that have extra features like folder pockets or stickers are always going to cost more. If you really need some stickers, you can find plenty at the dollar store. And if you want to spend less than $10, opt for a pocket planner. I included some on this list that start at just $7.99.
Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve rounded up the best monthly planners at solid prices for 2023. Most are $30 and under, but we included some splurge-worthy planners that tend to go on sale midyear and during the holidays.

Best Monthly Planners with Daily Pages
1. Bloom Daily Planner
The Bloom Daily Planner ($18.95, Amazon) comes with everything you need for under $30. Weekly layouts provide ample writing space for each day along with top priority space. I like that there are pages to write out your goals for the year, plus habit trackers to keep you accountable. There are also other lists (like things that bring you joy) and monthly calendar spreads. Stickers and a free magnetic bookmark are included, making this a great deal.
2. Sweetzer & Orange Undated Planner
It’s hard to beat the under $10 price of this Sweetzer & Orange Undated Planner ($8.99, Amazon). I love that the undated pages don’t make you feel locked in (in other words, it’s not a big deal if you skip a day). Each page has space for top priorities, a to-do list, a schedule, meals, and more, as well as an inspirational daily quote.
3. Riley’s To-Do List Spiral Notebook
Riley’s To-Do List Notebook ($14.99, Amazon) offers a slightly more fun way to plan your day. Each colorful page has space for a to-do list and a few healthy habit trackers. Undated pages offer flexibility; plus the soft cover and small size make it easy to tote anywhere.

5. Day Designer 2023 Daily Planner
The Day Designer 2023 Daily Planner ($68, Day Designer) does run a bit more pricey than some other options when it’s not on sale.

If pretty artwork is what you’re looking for, this is a great choice. Weekly pages have enough space to write out what needs to get done each day, so this is ideal if you aren’t looking to track everything you do. It does tend to sell out though, so keep an eye out for restocks.
