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: 

 

WHAT’S NEW

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. 

DAILY PLANNER

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.

 

 WEEKLY PLANNER

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. 

 

SIX MONTH UNDATED PLANNER

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.
