Calendars, Planners, Diaries, and Agendas: Different Options

What’s the difference between a calendar, a planner, and an agenda? Really, nothing I can tell. The terms seem generally interchangeable. What they have in common is they are paper notebooks in which you can keep track of your appointments, to-do lists and contacts.

There are many types of planners.

  • Layouts. Planners can be organized with either a day, week, or month on a page. Many planners combine two or more (for example, one planner may have both monthly calendars and weekly pages). Some planners also are further segmented by time of day, which is good for keeping track of appointments and meetings.
  • Refillable loose leaf. With some agenda books, you can swap out old pages and replace them with new ones.
  • Dated versus undated. Many organizers are dated, but others are blank, meaning you can begin using them at any time and fill in the dates as you go along.
  • Other features. Consider if any of the following is important to you: blank sections for note-taking, to-do-lists, a section for contact information, pockets, stickers, expense reports, monthly and yearly goals, and holiday reminders, to name some.
