At this point, you've likely made at least a few resolutions for the coming year. But of all the lofty goals you've set for yourself in 2015—getting fit, eating better, quitting smoking—one that's all too often overlooked is time management-- a strange truth considering that if you exercise better control over your schedule, you can better regulate all of the above! And even though there are a plethora of digital assistants out there to help you streamline your days and weeks (what's up, Siri?), sometimes, we prefer good old-fashioned pen and paper to really hash out appointments and ideas. Here are five planners we're eyeing that'll make getting organized in the New Year a pleasure.
