The Commit 30 Planner is one of very few planners that includes habit trackers so I was keen to see what the rest of the planner looked like…
- Size: 7″ wide x 10″ high (5.75 x 8.25″ also available)
- Sewn binding
- Dates at a glance
- Goals pages
- Monthly habit trackers
- Neutral inside pages
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- 2 Page monthly calendar (starts on Monday)
Price: $30 – $35 (depends on size)
Let’s take a closer look!

That typical not a hardcover but softcover with rounded corners
Approx 0.75″ thick
Annual Planning – Goals
The inside has the same black and gold / mustard theme. I’m not a fan of the colors but it does make the planner gender neutral.
Monthly Planning & Goals
… So the habit tracking part is a bit disappointing. There’s only 1 habit tracker per month. There’s so much wasted space on the page – they could’ve easily squeezed another 1 or 2 habit trackers. for each month.
The circle design is different.. but aren’t a practical use of space.
Week starts on Monday (consistent with the weekly planner).
There is a 6th row added rather than re-starting the dates on the top row. Not a fan as it mean there’s less notes space and most of the top row is wasted.
Week starts on Monday (consistent with the monthly calendar)
Schedule from 5am to 7pm. The hours are on the far left not repeated for each day so you could ignore the times and just use it as a 3 section daily planner.
Bottom 3 boxes for each day could be used for top 3 most important tasks, meals, reminders, things that are due etc.
Dates at a glance
I really like this format with the dates for the year and national holidays list and some notes space to add dates important only to you e.g. birthdays.
These overview calendars are too small to write in but could be used for habit tracking and recurring tasks if you use dot stickers like these to color code various things.
There are not tabs (as it’s a sewn bound planner), however the month is printed on the side of the weekly and monthly pages. I wish the month was printed higher on the page e.g. month at the top on the side and week’s at the bottom to make it easier to find.
Pocket Folder & Stickers
1 sheet of stickers… not really sure why they bothered to include them since there’s only 1 or 2 of each.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens. The paper held up well with only minor ghosting.
My cheap purple highlighter, as always, bled through the page. However the other highlighters had minimal ghosting.
Pros of the Planner
- Gender neutral
- Built in ribbon bookmarks
- Monthly calendar and weekly spread both start on Monday
- Reasonable price
- No tabs but the months are printed on the side
Cons of the Planner
- The pages tend to close on their own rather than lay flat
- No tabs (if you want them, they cost $10 extra)
- Ugly color scheme
- Schedule starts too early (from 5am to 7pm)
- Expensive shipping to Australia (from the USA)
- 30 day habit tracking and goal pages with the circle design are a bit of waste of space
Would I use this planner?
No. I like the idea of a planner focused on habit tracking and goals tracking but the circle design is not practical, I hate the color scheme, the 6th row on the monthly calendar pages and the vertical hourly weekly format are a turn off for me.
The 7 x 10″ is a bit of a clunky awkward page size – I’d get the smaller 5.75 x 8.25″
