While on the quest for a planner that could be used for bullet journaling (i.e. open ended but with more structure than just dot grid pages), I came across Mossery. I was originally looking at their planners with just the monthly calendars and either dotted or ruled notes pages, but ended up choosing a more structured horizontal weekly layout instead.
This is not a sponsored post. I purchased the planner myself and as always, all opinions are my own.

Let’s take a closer look!

I’ve only seen a cover like this one other time (on the Punch Studios Planner). It’s wire bound but the cover goes over the coil. For this planner it works well – the pages lay flat – even when folded back on themselves.
Approx 0.5″ thick
Week starts on Monday.
In instances where the days of the week would require either splitting a box or restarting the numbering on the top row, this planner company went with option c: start a new line. I’m not a fan of this as you lose the lined notes space.
I really like the lined notes and week numbers section!
At the start and end of each month is a blank notes page (i.e. 2 pages per month for planning and review).
Starts on Monday (consistent with the monthly calendar – yay!)
I opted for the horizontal layout but there is also a vertical hourly option. If you don’t need the weekly spreads, you can choose just the monthly calendars and either dotted or ruled notes pages.
If you like vertical, this is what the layout looks like:
There are some odd pages at the front that I think are meant to inspire you… but are just kind of weird and random.
Goals page on the left with space to map out the steps for each goal. I’m not sure about the values / beliefs page on the right – it could be converted into a quotes page.
The layout of the annual / monthly planner / future log is why this planner reminds me of a bullet journal
There is no divider between the sections – just fluro paper.
There are plenty of graph paper pages in the notes section before the monthly and weekly pages. I haven’t really tried planning on graph paper so am going to give it a go with this planner!
There are no tabs. There are only 2 neon divider pages in the planner – one for the notes and the other for the dated pages. There is 1 ribbon bookmark.
The paper quality isn’t very good. The paper is very thin – you can see the printing of the pages on the back side. All of the pens, highlighters and stamps I tried has ghosting or bled through.
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme
- Personalised cover
- Multiple cover options to choose from
Cons of the Planner
- The 6th row on some of the monthly calendars
- No tabs
- Only 1 ribbon bookmark (2 would be better)
- Graph paper
- Paper quality isn’t very good
Would I use this planner?
Maybe. I’m usually not a fan of writing on graph paper (unless I’m making a habit tracker). The paper isn’t very good quality and there are plenty of planners with horizontal layouts so if you don’t want graph paper, I’d go for one with better paper.
This planner would be good if you’re tired of ruling up horizontal bullet journal layouts – the format of the extra pages reminds me of bullet journaling.
