Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
The pen I recommend using over the grey title boxes is the Sakura Gelly Roll 08 in white
The cover is leatherette material – not hardcover but not softcover either. The typical cover material you found on sewn bound notebooks.
Approx 1.25″ thick. it is thicker and heavier than most daily planners because of all the extra pages.
This belongs to page
I forgot to take a picture but it’s the same as the weekly edition.
GOAL SETTING PAGES
Plenty of goal setting pages …
Week starts on Sunday. The sidebar is different to most planners with categories instead of just lined notes space. I also like the ‘wins’ and ‘how to improve’ sections.
While this is a daily planner, it has weekly overview, weekly notes and weekly review pages!
The habit tracker is a great idea but the writing space for each habit is very small – 1 inch wide. Other than that a very functional weekly overview page! <3
I don’t mind dot grid pages however the dots in the Clever Fox Planners are more black than grey. They’re also 0.4mm apart not the usual 0.5mm spacing in dot grid notebooks.
The weekly review page, like the rest of the planner is very functional. I really like the to-the-point review questions.
1 day per page. 7 per week (i.e. Saturday and Sunday each have a separate page). The scheduling times start at 6am ending at 9pm. The font is a very light grey so if you didn’t want to use the times you could probably write straight over the to without worrying about white out.
3 sheets of rainbow icon stickers.
There are no tabs in the planner (probably because it’s hardbound)
I previously did a review of the weekly version. The paper quality feels the same.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens, as well as highlighters and MAMBI stamps. This planner had the best results out of the 80+ planners I’ve reviewed to date. I was quite impressed with the paper – no bleed through or ghosting for the pens and stamps! ? Only the cheap highlighter (purple one – it’s from the Reject shop) had some ghosting.
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme – can color code without the colors clashing
- Gender neutral
- Undated – start planning anytime
- Pen holder
- Multiple ribbon bookmarks
- Weekly overview, weekly review and weekly notes pages
- The pages lay flat
- Extra notes pages at the back
Cons of the Planner
- 6 month duration (although if you buy 2 the price works out about the same as a 12 month planner)
- Heavy – if I were to use it I’d prefer a quarterly version that weighs less
- No cover personalisation option
- Heading boxes are a very dark grey – you’ll need a white pen to clearly see what you’ve written
Would I use this planner?
Undecided. I don’t tend to use day to a page planners however if I did this would probably be at the top of the list. The schedule section is horizontal format and the number printing is feint so I could just write over the top without needing to use white out. I also like the weekly overview and reflections pages that most planners don’t include.
