The Balance You Crave

Living a life you love is about more than to-do lists and getting all your ducks in a row-but these are really great places to start!

Because let’s face it—life can get a little crazy sometimes!  There is so much to do and never enough time, and sometimes it feels like we are so busy just surviving that there’s not any room left for our big goals and dreams. We all feel it—that pressure to perform and to keep up, day in, and day out.

Do you ever crave a little balance? And do you ever wish you had permission to make your own goals and dreams a priority?

Me too. 

As a busy wife, mom, author, and small business owner, I feel that same unrelenting pressure every single day as I work to balance the demands of my job with the needs of my family and the desire to pursue my wildest dreams and reach my biggest goals. 
I wanted to find some sort of resource that could help me collect my thoughts and bring order to the chaos, a tool that could help me not only plan my days, but help me keep track of my budget, plan my meals, organize my schedule, and—most importantly—help me CRUSH my goals. 
But I couldn’t find it.  So I decided to create it instead.
SO much more than just a planner, the Living Well Planner™ is designed to help you organize your whole life, not just your schedule.  It will inspire and enable you to take back your time in a purposeful way, allowing you to focus on your long-term goals while navigating the daily, weekly, and monthly responsibilities of running your home. From budgeting to meal-planning, it is the sanity saver we’ve all been waiting for.

There's More? 

YES! We weren't kidding, It's MORE than a pretty planner.

We realize a planner isn't going to transform your life. You need a plan, you need support and accountability, as well as the permission to make your own dreams a priority. The Living Well Planner was designed especially for YOU: your heart, your dreams, your goals. It is more than a planner, it's an entire system devoted to teaching you how to plan and achieve a life you love. 

That’s why every purchase of the Living Well Planner includes the tools, support, and instruction you need to help implement a system in your own life.  It starts with Crushing It™ Central.  We’ll also enroll you in our Crushing It™ Bootcamp. Finally, you’ll also get access to the Crushing It™ Community.


  • Crushing It™ Central | You'll get FREE access to an exclusive, members-only center to help you get the most use out of every single page. Packed full of motivational and inspirational videos, a printable library, plus so much more.                                                
  • Crushing It™ Bootcamp | You'll get a series of emails that will guide you step-by-step on how to set up your planner to maximizing its effectiveness in your life.                                                                                              
  • Crushing It™ Community | You'll be invited to a private Facebook group available only to Living Well Planner users, where you can connect with other like-minded women and get the support and accountability you need to succeed.

A life you love

What Our Users Think

Don't just take our word for it 

Let me premise this review by saying I never write reviews but felt that there may be others that can benefit from this. I am a bit of a planner addict, I have one every single year and I use it daily. For the last few years I have been searching for one that will hold up to all of my needs professionally, personally and financially. Well ladies, this is it! This planner is WELL worth the price. I've had it for about a week now and I am so happy with it. There are things in this planner that make it so much easier to budget. Before I would have written a million sticky notes with reminders that wouldn't fit but with this planner there is a place for everything, including the daily to do's. It is definitely worth the price due to what you get. I think it is a reasonable price for something that I will use legitimately daily for the next year.


 WOW! This has become the biggest change to getting more organized.
I’m busy with my home life, family, blog, freelancing and more. I bet you can relate. This planner is an amazing “one stop shop” for getting your life together in an organized fashion. I HIGHLY suggest buying this planner. I’m so excited and this game changer is having a huge impact on my life.
Thanks, Ruth and team!


 I am having so much fun, using stickers, using different colored pens, the planning and writing. I am a detailed, organized person – my closet is organized by colors and my spices are alphabetized – yes, I’m that woman. So this is right up my alley with the ability to put as much detail as I want – budget, meals, etc. I plan on buying this again next year


I purchased this planner last year 
and fell in LOVE! As a teacher and mom, I have tried many; but this one kept all my financial, goal setting, 
and scheduling needs in one place. Perfect price, perfect size, perfect layout for a perfect planner! 
Thank you! 


This is my first planer from LWSL. I love it. It has me constantly thinking about my goals and how to crush them. I know it will be so helpful through the
 coming year. I highly recommend this to anyone who is wanting a planner. Thanks for creating it Ruth!  


 Get ORGANIZED. CRUSH your Goals. LOVE your Life.

    Hi, I'm Ruth

    I  give you permission to make yourself a priority.

    Friends, I’m so honored that you are considering the Living Well Planner to help get your life in order this year! As the founder of the popular website, Living Well Spending Less, which reaches more than one million women each month, and the founder of Elite Blog Academy, I am super passionate about helping women everywhere follow their dreams and reach their goals.

    I also know what it is like to be BUSY, and to feel like life is spinning out of control. In my own life, I have seen what a difference taking the time to plan and focus on my long-term goals can make, and I wanted to create a resource that could help me better manage my time, money, and responsibilities. I have no doubt that it will make a difference for you too.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does the Living Well Planner Cost?

    The Living Well Planner™ is $55, and includes FREE access to our member-only resources; Crushing It™ Central, Crushing It™ Bootcamp and the Crushing It™ Community. 

    When will I get my planner?

    We do our best to ship our planners as quickly as possible. Occasionally, during periods of high volume, we will experience a slight delay of 48-72 hours in processing time, generally we process each order within 1 business day. How quickly your planner arrives will depend the shipping option you select at checkout and where you live in relation to our distribution center (which is located in Arkansas).

    What's makes this planner different from others? 

    The Living Well Planner™ allows you to manage all the aspects of a busy life while keeping an eye on your long-term and short-term goals.  It features our exclusive Goal Crushing™ system, monthly budget planning worksheets, as well as expense tracking sheets, and also includes meal planning worksheets right alongside the weekly planning pages.  It is also printed in full color, with beautiful, color-coded pages that will keep you inspired all year long.

    How soon should I order to guarantee a copy?

    The Living Well Planner™ is extremely popular, and due to the nature of printing and manufacturing, quantities are limited.  Last year we sold out in record time, before the first planner even began shipping. We strongly recommend ordering as soon as possible to guarantee your copy, as all planner orders are shipped out in the order they are received.

    What is your refund policy?

    We understand that committing to a planner is a big decision, and we want you to feel confident with your purchase.  Please take the time to review all our photos in detail, as well as to confirm that the size and dimensions will suit your needs, as all planner sales, unless damaged or defective, are final once shipped.

    Why do you print in full color?

    We believe that staying organized and motivated is a whole lot easier when we have beautiful tools to work with.  We  chose to print in full color because we wanted to create something that was gorgeous and inspiring on the inside.  Printing in full color meant that our costs would be higher, but we have done everything in our power to keep the price down, while still maintaining our strict quality standards and printing and manufacturing right here in the USA. 

    What month does the planner start?

    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.
