There seem to be more and more daily planners available, specifically undated planners so you can start and stop using them anytime. One of these that caught my eye (which has 2 pages per day and lots of room to write) is the Lion Planner.

Typical hardcover sewn bound notebook. It does have a lion symbol in the corner… but other than that it’s very plain.
Approx 1″ thick
At the front of the planner are some open-ended goal planning pages
Week starts on Monday but since there’s no dates you could use some whiteout and switch it to Sunday. To save time I like to use date dot stickers for undated planners.
This planner is a bit different – there’s no days of the week on the weekly pages.
Instead there’s space to pre-plan and then reflect.
Not sure why, but the daily has a 24 hour day. If I used it I’d re-purpose the unneeded hours for extra list making space
Not very often that each day has 2 pages to plan:
I find contacts pages to be a waste of space (as I keep that info on my phone) but you could re-purpose this page for lists, password log etc.
As is the case with sewn bound notebooks, there are no tabs.
There is 1 pocket folder adhered to the back cover:
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme
- Bright white paper
- Despite it’s thickness it doesn’t feel like it weighs much
- Monthly, weekly and daily pages
- Undated – start planning anytime
- 2 page daily spread
- 2 page weekly overview
- Pocket folder
Cons of the Planner
- 1 page monthly calendar – may be crammed for space in the boxes
- No tabs
Would I use this planner?
It’s different… but I’m not sure it’s the right fit for me. When I bought it, it was with the intention of turning the daily spread into a weekly spread. I may still do that – I’m undecided at the moment.
If you like this planner, it’s available on Amazon (affiliate link).
