Planners with weekly and daily spreads are hard to come by, particularly daily planners that don’t have a schedule. One that ticks all of these boxes is the Cossac Planner.

Let’s take a closer look!

This planner has the usual sturdy hardcover that sewn bound planners have. I could only find it in black at the time of my purchase but now it seems to be available in gold, orange and a pretty pastel purple.
The cover is plain apart from a flower indented into the front cover. Something different that I haven’t seen before – is the dual elastic bands.
Just over 0.75″ thick
Their website (URL address in the photo below) has extra resources for using your planner.
Starts Sunday however since it’s undated you could use some stickers to switch it to a Monday start.
There is 5mm dot grid writing space in the sidebar and sections underneath the calendar.
All of the monthly calendars are clustered together at the front.
Next, are all of the weekly planning pages clustered together.
The weekly spread is not the usual 7 sections pre-labelled for each day, instead it has open ended space you can choose to use however you like.
- Last weekly review (download my weekly review questions here)
- This week’s priority
- Health and habits (I would’ve liked to see an actual habit tracker in this section)
- 7 boxes you could use for 7 days of the week or breakdown the steps required for your priority tasks for the week
Lastly, all of the day to a page planners are clustered together at the back.
I love this daily planning page – no prefilled schedule!
You could add the times to the boxes beside the lines, or just use these as checkboxes.
The line spacing is 5 – 6mm.
The notes and ideas section is 5mm dot grid.
The habits and health boxes tie back to the weekly spread.
Since the days aren’t pre-printed, you can stop and start using these daily pages as often as you like, just circle the day of the week.
There are 12 notes / mindmap pages with a 7mm dot grid. Not sure why they didn’t keep this a 5mm dot grid which would be consistent with the rest of the planner.
The pocket folder at the back has a cut out so you can actually reach into the pocket folder.
There are 2 ribbon bookmarks – an extra one so there can be 1 for each section (monthly, weekly and daily) would be good.
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme
- Weekly goals / planning page
- Functional page designs
- Page types are clustered together into separate sections – monthly, weekly, daily
- 2 ribbon bookmarks
- Undated – start using anytime
- Reasonable price for a 6 month planner ($25 USD)
- No schedule on the daily planning page
Cons of the Planner
- Ivory pages (I prefer bright white)
- Pages are thin (can see the printing of the design on the backside)
Would I use this planner?
Yes, there is no wasted space on the design and I can easily convert the daily planner into a weekly planner.
