I feel like August marks the start of planner season – when people (well, some people) start thinking about next year’s systems in earnest. It was perfect timing for my chat with Michelle, who cofounded Bloom at age 20 (!).
We talk about her brand, and particularly how she tries to offer a range of products to address all stages of life, and also about trends more generally in the planner world.
A few products mentioned:
- Vision Planner – one of their flagship offerings that Michelle used for years
- Work & Personal To Do List – so simple, yet super useful!
- Baby Book! Love this pregnancy + mom’s first year planner. I would totally give this as a gift.
- Softbound Planner – start at just $18.95 – very affordable compared to many brands, as I find true with Bloom in general!
If you are looking for a fun but also highly functional planning product at a very reasonable price point, definitely check out Bloom. They are also very easy to shop for via Amazon, but you can find them in some local stores + college bookstores as well.

I’m excited about this month, which will contain multitudes. Goals are set, calendar is reviewed, and I feel ready.
1 more week of relaxed summer lifestyle, including G’s 3 last days of camp
1 week of family vac (Harry Potter @ Universal + Amelia Island)
2+ weeks of back to school, establishing those rhythms and finding out what preK / 3rd / 5th grade have in store (bittersweet year – last year before we enter middle school territory, wow).
I have decided I am going to attempt to track my time this month!!! I feel like it will be fun to capture these different kinds of days, and may prove useful. I will be using paper – will show my planned format tomorrow 🙂
