2020 diary guide: the best planners, agendas and diaries to help you get organised

Posted by for Life

Make organisation a little bit more appealing this new year with this selection of beautiful 2020 diaries and planners.

2020 has officially arrived, and the season of resolutions, goal setting and habit building is well and truly underway. As we begin a new year – and look at the 366 days ahead of us – it’s the perfect time to get organised and take stock of all the things we want to achieve over the next 12 months.

While the idea of “new year, new me” may not be everyone’s cup of tea, we can all benefit from taking the time to reflect on the year just gone and what’s coming up – and to help us do just that, you’ll want to grab yourself one of the many 2020 diaries currently on offer.

There truly is a diary out there for everyone – whether you prefer a monthly, weekly or daily layout, there’s plenty of patterns, prints and designs to pick from.

So, without further ado, here’s Stylist’s guide to all the best diaries, agendas and planners available for 2020. If you’re addicted to stationery (who isn’t?) get ready to feel very overwhelmed.
