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).
Not much to say – the usual hardcover in black that’s the standard for sewn bound planners and notebooks. I could only find this planner with a black cover.
Approx. 1.25″ thick (noting that it’s a 12 month, day to a page planner this isn’t that fat but the planner is still heavy).
At the front are some very basic goal pages:
- My focus
- Top 5 goals
- Mind Map
- Vision board
These pages are blank (no lines or dot grid writing space)
Since sewn bound planners never seem to have tabs, this one has the next best thing – pages in a different color (albeit a shade of grey) to help find them easier.
Starts Sunday however you could change this to a Monday start with some whiteout and a pen or washi tape and stickers.

The boxes for each day are just under 3cm wide x just over 3cm high
At the end of each month is 1 dot grid notes page. The 7mm dot grid is bigger than most notebooks (which are usually 5mm)
Finally a day to a page planner with sections for work and personal and no schedule! You can turn these into to do lists or write in whatever times work for you.
The line spacing is 7mm
There are 2 double sided dot grid pages followed by 8 dot grid (7mm) perforated pages at the back of the planner.
Pros of the Planner
- 2 pages per day
- Sections for work and personal in the same planner is hard to find
- Lasts 12 months
- Undated – start using anytime
- Pocket folder
- Tear off pages at the back
- Line spacing and dot grid are consistent throughout the planner (both 7mm)
- Pages lay flat on their own
Cons of the Planner
- Paper is thin (can see the ink printed on the backside of the pages)
- Only comes in a black cover, no other colors to choose from
- No tabs
- Only 1 ribbon bookmark
- Most of the goal pages are basic and have unlined writing space
Would I use this planner?
I don’t normally use day to a page planners, but if I was going to, this would be one I’d consider using as it doesn’t have a timed schedule layout. The inside pages are a bit plain but it does mean you can add plenty of color with pens and highlighters without worrying about the colors clashing with the colors of the planner. This daily planner is ideal for list makers.
