KitLife Launches First Academic Collection

KitLife Launches First Academic Collection

For the first time, KitLife is launching a mid-year collection of planners filled with more options than ever before! The collection features three interior layouts – a dated daily, a dated horizontal weekly and a six month undated daily.  The dated planners run an academic year, July 2020 – June 2021. There are also two cover options, a colorful floral and a neutral marble design. Each design is available in any of the three layouts plus new features an updates have been added to help you keep it together and make planning more intentional. 


Let’s take a closer look: 



Inside Pocket & Stickers – A new inside pocket has been added to the interior front cover of all the planners plus two new sticker sheets are included as well. The stickers are designed in the coordinating colors to match the planners and include icons, monthly tabs, dots, hearts, tear drops and goal setting prompts.

Monthly Check-In – Each monthly spread is followed by a new “check-in” layout to help set intentions and goals for the month ahead. The pages feature prompts for personal and professional goal setting and habit tracking on one side.  The other side of the layout has space to track intentions for books, podcasts, social plans, healthy eating and fitness.

 Interior Tabs –  The monthly spreads are indicated by a color coded interior tab that make the planner profile more compact and easy to identify. The monthly tab stickers can be added as an exterior viewing option. 

Elastic Band – An attached navy elastic band on every planner helps keep your planner and contents safe when traveling about. It also works great as a page marker as well.

Binding – The new planners feature hard cover designs with coordinating gold or silver wire-o binding.


All of the planners have two page monthly spreads followed by the new monthly check in and then the interior layout pages. At the back of the planners there are yearly overviews for 2020 and 2021 at a glance. Here are some more details about each layout. 


The daily planner layout has not been changed. The top portion of the page has a spot for the “big three” along with a spacious lined area for to do lists, journaling and more. The bottom portion of the page features a timed section for appointments or time blocking plus a prompt area for daily gratitude, activity and meal plan. Each day has its own page and the weekends share a page along with a “peek at the week” which gives an overview of the week ahead at a glance.



The weekly planner has a horizontal layout which is lined. Each day is split into two sections with an area for a task list and an area for planning appointments plus a prompt for daily self care. At the bottom of the weekly spread there is an area for daily gratitude on the left side and on the right side there is space for the big three and a weekly to do list. The top of the weekly spread also features a prompt for a weekly goal. The back of the weekly planner is filled with bonus pages which include monthly budget planning, meal planning with perforated grocery lists, travel planning and a few notes pages. 



The new undated daily planner offers the option for more flexibility and customization. The planner includes six months of undated monthly spreads followed by six months of undated daily pages (same layout as the dated version). This is a great planner for anyone who wants a monthly layout with some undated daily pages for those extra busy days. It also offers an option for anyone that needs a full page for everyday including weekends.

The new 2020 Summer Collection from Cultivate What Matters is bright, beautiful and full of inspiration for all ages. This launch features a collection of curated, intentional products that are not only for women but for the special young girls in their life too. The new and highly anticipated Girls Goal Planner is part of this release along with other fun products that are designed to help women focus on what matters most.


Cultivate What Matters Girls Goal Planner



The Girls Goal Planner was created as a way for young girls (ages 8-13) to get an early start on goal setting and learning to focus on what is important. Based on the popular Power Sheets Intentional Goal Planner for women, the concept has been reimagined with young girls in mind using a simplified three step process.  It was created with child psychologists and developmental experts to meet the needs of girls in the unique season they are in. The planner is a twelve month undated workbook which features weekly and monthly spreads along with guided prompts, engaging activities, coloring pages, a pocket folder and fun stickers. The prompts include pages focused on kindness, diligence, bravery, encouragement and more. This planner will help inspire and empower the next generation of women to cultivate a life they love. Girls will definitely be excited to dive into all the fun and inspiration packed inside.




The Wildcard Page Pack has been a popular item from Cultivate What Matters since it was first introduced. This updated version is designed to help you cultivate your summer while keeping relevant social distancing guidelines in mind. The new pack includes a “stay-at-home” fun list, water trackers, gardening sheet and friends catalog. Wildcard Pages were created to use in conjunction with your Power Sheets Goal Planner to customize and focus on specific areas and goals. The pack is available individually or as part of the Summer Essentials Bundle.


Cultivate What Matter Wildcard Pack



The new Garden Sticker Pack makes planning your goals just a little more fun. These beautiful florals and garden themed designs can be used in the Girls Goal Planner or Power Sheets. The pack includes 190 colorful and foiled designs. It is sold separately or as part of the Summer Essentials Bundle.


Cultivate What Matter Garden Sticker Pack



Two powerhouse notepads help double your productivity and keep you on track when you need it most. The Daily Planner Notepad helps organize busy days and stay on track with top priorities. While the Break It Down Notepad creates a list of actionable steps to achieve those bigger goals. Both pair perfectly with your Power Sheets to provide the extra space to zone in on accomplishing specific tasks. They are available individually or as part of the Summer Essentials Bundle.




Two super soft and cozy items are a part of the summer collection. The new Sprout Hat and Pocket Tee (both in teal) will come in handy while taking walks, hanging out at home or planting in the garden this summer.



There are several bundle options available during the launch as well as stock on existing products including the six month undated Power Sheets Goal Planner, the Goal Setting Sticker Book and the All Seasons Write The Word Journals. Due to popular demand, a printed, three-hole-punched version of The Cultivated Home School Planner will also be available for preorder.

The entire collection is full of inspiration and encouragement to help cultivate a summer that is intentional and meaningful.
