The Living Well Planner is Back (& Better Than Ever!)

Friends, none of us start out hoping for ordinary.

We don’t begin our lives hoping for average.  For a marriage that is just okay.  For a career that we tolerate, but don’t really love.  For friendships that are superficial.  For hobbies and pastimes that don’t really excite us.  For most of the time, just trying to make it through the day.

When we are young, we believe we can do anything, that anything and everything is possible.  And every day is a new adventure.

Wouldn’t it be nice to feel that way again?

Like anything is possible?

Wouldn’t it be nice to jump out of bed in the morning, simply because you can’t WAIT to start your day?  Wouldn’t it be nice to begin your day with purpose and clarity instead of simply going through the motions?

What if you really could have it all?

What if you could be the wife and the mom you want to be, the one you know you are inside.  The one who radiates a joy that permeates her entire family? What if you could do the work you’ve always wanted to do, the work that fills you up and makes you feel whole, the work that sparks your passion and allows you to live in your sweet spot?

What if you were finally able to manage and keep track of all those details that so often get you off track and make you feel like you are failing?  What if getting dinner on the table was effortless, a natural extension of your day, or you were finally able to get a handle on your finances and begin making your money work for you instead of the other way around?

What if you dared to give yourself permission to go after your goals and dreams?  To stop putting them off for fear of failure and instead had the courage to do it scared?

What if?

This is what the Living Well Planner is all about.  It’s the practical tool that can help you harness the power of WHAT IF.

It is your daily reminder that anything is possible.

When it debuted last year, I knew the Living Well Planner™ had the potential to be life changing. It was the first of its kind—an all-in-one tool not just for planning your days, but for keeping track of your budget, managing your home, planning your meals, and reaching your goals.

And you loved it.

Over the past year, the feedback we have received from planner users has been incredible.  This amazing tool really has changed lives.  But we also knew we could do even better. And so the refining process began again.

We left no stone unturned in our quest to create the most useful planning tool imaginable, taking every single comment and suggestion to heart in order to improve upon the original and create a planner that will rock your world (but only in the best possible way!)

The Living Well Planner is Back | LWSL Planner | Time Management | Lifestyle

Here are just a few of the improvements that we’ve made this year:

  • SMALLER SIZE: We’ve shrunk the page size just slightly, from 8.5×11 to 7.5×9.5–still big enough to give you enough room to write, but easier to tote along
  • THICKER PAPER: We took it from 50# weight to 60# for increased durability.
  • FRONT POCKET: Because sometimes you just need a place to put stuff!
  • REIMAGINED COVER: A simple, bright & cheery stripe pattern with a durable eggshell finish, along with reinforced metal corners will help keep your planner safe all year long.
  • HOUR-BY-HOUR SCHEDULING: Weekly planning & time-blocking made easier with a vertical layout and room for hour-by-hour appointment scheduling.
  • SIMPLIFIED MEAL PLANNING: One block for all meals, giving you the option to plan just one meal a day, or all three.
  • BETTER BUDGETING: We’ve made our budgeting pages even more intuitive and user-friendly.
  • GOAL CRUSHING: This might just be the one single improvement we’re MOST excited about. You see, goal setting is all well and good, but we don’t want to see you just set your goals, we want to see you CRUSH your goals! Our exclusive Goal Crushing™ system will transform the way you get things done—we promise!

The Living Well Planner is Back | LWSL Planner | Time Management | Lifestyle

Like before, the Living Well Planner is printed in full color, and is fully printed and manufactured right here in the USA.

It is still undated so that you can begin using it at any time, and it offers space for planning out the year, as well as monthly goal-setting and monthly budget pages. It also includes labels for customizing your planner, including wrap-around monthly tab stickers that actually help reinforce the tabs while allowing you to easily find the month you are looking for.

More importantly, the Living Well Planner offers a tangible solution to the chaos of a busy life, and it will empower, enable, and inspire you to take back your time and manage your schedule, allowing you to focus on your BIG goals while still navigating the daily, weekly, and monthly responsibilities of running your home.

The Living Well Planner is Back | LWSL Planner | Time Management | Lifestyle

It is designed to help you find the balance you crave, to allow you to be the best version of yourself—the mom and wife and friend and person you want to be—while giving you permission to make your dreams a reality.

In other words?

It is the sanity saver we’ve ALL been waiting for!

    Do you ship outside of the U.S.?

    • Ruth Soukup
      July 17 at 08:47PM

      Yes, we do ship outside of the United States. You can read about our shipping and shop policies here:

        I ordered it from Holland. Shipping costs are pretty steep and then, if you’re unlucky, customs will sent you a bill for importing it.

        But I’m still happy with it. Only thing I miss is how to keep track of exercise.

    Is the planner 2016-2017, or only 2017?

    • Ruth Soukup
      July 18 at 05:28PM

      The Living Well Planner is undated so you can begin using it during any month of the year. It comes with a starter set of labels that will allow you to customize the tabs.

  3. July 22 at 01:29PM

    I LOVE this planner! The fact that it’s unmarked and you can start it anytime is brilliant! There are so many areas where you can fill in meal planning, food lists, every day to-do items, and goals for each week and month. It really is the best planner I have ever come across, so be sure to get one for yourself. It’s the only way to stay organized!

    • Ruth Soukup

      Thank you Alice for sharing your opinion of our Living Well planner. We are really excited about the new and improved planner! Have you ordered your new planner yet? 🙂

        Very soon Ruth. It’s on my calendar!

    July 22 at 02:51PM

    I like to make a daily to do list. Is there space here to write this each day? Also is there a whole month calendar to write down doctor appointments and such and be able to see an overview of your month?

    • Ruth Soukup
      July 22 at 09:48PM

      Yes, there is space to write daily lists and a space to keep track of appointments. You can read more about the Living Well planner here:

    Does the Unstuffed book come with the planner bundle of favorites? ( The one selling for $95) On some pages it mentions it does, but others only talk about the other books even though the Unstuffed book is pictured.

    Thank you

    Do you have 16 month planners for those of us who work in schools?

    • Ruth Soukup
      July 31 at 04:19PM

      Hi Ginny,

      Currently, we have a 12 month unlabeled planner, that way you can start it any month you need. 🙂

  9. July 31 at 02:43PM

    Newly designed, wipeable cover with heavy-duty wire O-ring binding, reinforced corners, and a front pocket. Let go of the guilt, and instead be inspired to get organized, declutter your home, and take back your life from the STUFF that is weighing you down.

  10. July 31 at 08:42PM

    Exciting! I’ll have to put it on my Christmas/Birthday list again. I’ll just make it a traditional gift for my husband to get me!

    I cannot express how excited I am about this new and updated planner! Squeal! 😀 Color makes my entire being feel happy and you have it this year on your cover!! Quick question. I know you gave the pound of the paper but I was wondering if you could please share the gsm of the paper? I’m hoping it is 140? Thanks so much for everything you do! You are truly such a blessing to my adhd brain. Dealing with a true overly active brain is a constant struggle and what you do has helped me to continue training my brain to work WITH me instead of AGAINST me. That is appreciated more than you can ever know. <3 So cheers to you and prayers for much continued success! Thank you!

      Hi Kendra,
      Here is the information the printer gave us: 89 GSM, 97 Brightness, 94.0 opacity. 60# Accent Opaque smooth finish. I hope that helps 🙂

    I just received my planner and it is everything! If you have not ordered one, do it now. I can see and feel my life getting better already. Like the weight of confusion and doubt has been lifted. If you’re ready to get your life in order, this is a great place to start. It’s so pretty, I almost don’t want to write in it.

    • Ruth Soukup

    What pen or writing implement do you recommend? I like to use fine point Sharpies, but I’m afraid it will bleed through to the other side!

    • Ruth Soukup
      August 31 at 09:09PM

      Our team tested a bunch of pens and suggests using the Pilot G2 or Pilot Frixion in the Living Well Planner. 🙂

    Help! I ordered my planner a week ago and still have yet to receive tracking information on the whereabouts of my planner. My family’s finances are in a disarray after a long stint of unemployment and are eager to get back on track and this was one of the ways to do it. I spent $75 on the planner and 2 books. I’ve been a fan of this site for a LONG time and I don’t want to lose hope!

    • Ruth Soukup

    I just got my planner yesterday and will start using it December 1st. I got a recommendation from a friend. I love it. One thought if it could add a couple of envelopes in the pages say at the 3,4 or 6 month intervals to put tax deductible receipts into. This would allow none of them to get too big that they would tear the envelope because if you have that much you probably have a system set up for it. I also wish that at the beginning I could put my expected salary information in and set up the budget categories at the beginning of the year. For instance what 10% of income would be and what 15% would be. This would allow me to reflect back if I needed to. Size seems great. Durability of paper is great. Love the reinforced edges as it will be going everywhere with me. The pockets are nice to hold the stickers and a couple sheets of paper. Someone mentioned exercise section. That could be an idea or it could easily go with monthly goals. I am still very new to it all it looks to have more to keep me on track than any planner I have ever seen.

    Very disappointed in this planner. I listed very specific items that, in my opinion, needed to be redesigned. Your company immediately responded and said it is not returnable. No acknowledgement of my concerns. The satisfaction of your customer is the future of your company.

    • Ruth Soukup
      November 29 at 04:56PM

      Hi Jacquie,

      I’m so very sorry you are disappointed with your Planner purchase. We tried to make our return policy very clear on our shop website to prevent unhappy customers. Please feel free to email me ( your concerns and I can add them to our customer suggestions list.

    I want to know how many weekly and monthly pages are in the planner.

  23. Tami
    December 25 at 02:35AM

    Why did you change the monthly spread in the planner to start weeks on Mondays instead of Sundays?

  24. Monica Kauffman

    Do you have any of the planner design from 2016. I actually like that design better. I would like to purchase one if they are still available.

    These books seem WAAAAY over priced. $25-$35 for a planner should be sufficient. If making them in color is what is jacking up the price, then offer them in black and white. It makes NO sense to spend this much money. IT is just paper and ink. I get that it is thought, design, but it also needs to be reasonably priced. Especially if this is actually usable and is purchased yearly, it is an ongoing thing. The binder will cost a few dollars and paper is only a few dollars, why the high cost? If you can make this more affordable, I will consider, if not… I will continue to use my regular planner. I also am used to using a planner that goes from morning to night 7am-9pm and it doesn’t appear that you have that option.. so I’d be paying for a lot off fluff it seems without a realistic use of what I usually use it for… a for a lot of color, which looks pretty, but NOT WORTH paying double for or another $35 dollars for. Just saying this a realistic feedback from viewing your site. sorry not sold. Price seems way inflated for what you are offering.

  26. Jodye Pool

    What comes with the planner? I am not sure how much of extras to order. Also, is the new planner a Sunday or Monday start?

    Is it possible to buy LIVING WELL PLANNER outside the United States? Shipping costs are very high! Thank you!
