My favorite setup for a weekly spread is 1 page for the days of the week, rather than the usual 2 pages. For me, the spread almost always ends up half empty. So if you prefer to work off a to do list or don’t need a lot of space, here’s some 1 page spread ideas!
Horizontal (equal space for each day)
The one layout I’ll always come back to as my favorite – horizontal – simple, quick and easy.
Dress it up with some washi tape and color (I used colored pencils):
5 day week
If you only use a planner from Monday to Friday…
Days + Sidebar
If you use a lot of lists, or jot random notes throughout the week, try these layouts:
If you don’t need as much space for weekends:
If you need more space for weekends:
So many uses for that 8th box:
- Meal planning
- Top priority
- Mini habit tracker
- Recurring tasks
- Quote box
If you find that 1 page isn’t quite enough space, then add a second page with a 1 column or 2 column list, notes etc.
Another option is to create a dashboard style layout with multiple list / sections on the other page. You could also ditch the days of the week and just use a page like this if you prefer (if I didn’t need the days of the week for blog planning I’d probably just use a list format to plan the week).
