I tried a different weekly planner almost every week of 2019. In the past couple of years I’d routinely switch to a different planner every single week but this year I tried using some planners for a few weeks. I’ll admit I only did this with a handful of planners – the Plum Paper horizontal lined plus notes, the Mi Goals Planner and my own printables.
I get bored using the same layout multiple times so like to mix it up by customising planners made by other people.
These are my 10 favorite weekly spreads / planners of 2019!
I tried quite a few Happy Planner inserts this year – the refills are so convenient and they can be used in so many ways. I’ll definitely be using more of these next year – especially with the rate which Happy Planner keep bringing out new products!
2. Rainbow Spreads
As per usual I did many rainbow spreads this year. The one below is my favorite – in the MAMBI Happy Notes (my all time favorite Happy Planner product!)
This relatively unknown Aussie planner company has some really functional layouts – my favorite being their study layout. It’s in the weekly format I keep coming back to – days of the week on 1 page and list space on the other page.
See my review of their 2020 planners in this post (some of the layouts, including the study layout changed slightly between 2019 and 2020).
4. Agendio Planner
So it only makes sense that a planner I chose the layout for would appear on this list! If you’re after a truly custom planner (from the front cover, all of the inside pages, binding type etc.) then Agendio would be my recommendation.
This pie chart layout is on the list because it was something different. I’ve got a Helix Circle Maker I found on amazon (affiliate link) on the way so will be doing some more visual spreads like this next year!
6. Green Theme
I want to try this again but with a bit more creative page layout than just 8 sections divided by washi tape.
I have a few 7 x 9″ dot grid notebooks I purchased during Black Friday Sales that I want to try this with – the bigger page size will have more room for to do lists too.
8. Converting a daily planner into a weekly planner
I have a few daily planners I purchased as readers wanted reviews… and then they’ve sat on a shelf collecting dust. So I decided to take one of them and convert it into a weekly planner. I quite like how it turned out! The blog section was a little squished but it gave me a chance to try a completely different layout and use some stickers.
It’s not something I’d want to do every week but I think I’ll try it again with another daily planner next year.
I also converted the daily Panda Planner into a weekly planner:
9. Resized printables to A5 page size
I used to like A4 / full page size but now I much prefer 7 x 9″ and A5 page sizes. Below is an A4 printable I made resized to A5 page size.

I also love how the rainbow list in this spread turned out. I tend to color code so my weekly spreads look a bit same same, or gravitate towards using the same rainbow colors all the time – this slightly different rainbow theme looked so pretty 🙂
I want to try something similar with citrus colors, 3 colors etc.
10. Mi Goals
This planner brand always makes it to my favorites list as it has a functional layout that’s easy to customise.
I actually used the Mi Goals a couple of weeks throughout this year – it’s one of the few planners I’ve used multiple times.
