There are a few planners that call themselves ‘Mom Planners’ but are really just planners with multiple sections per day. The MyAgenda planner has this type of layout, but with one section much bigger than the others. While it’s designed for a mum to keep track of her own schedule and everyone else’s in the other sections, it’d also work as a blog planner, student planner and general life planner for someone that likes structured layouts.
- Size: 7″ wide x 9″ high
- Frosted plastic cover (as the chevron pattern cover is just cardstock)
- Wire binding (note: there is a version of the planner with bookbound binding as well)
- Multiple cover pattern designs to choose from
- This belongs to page in case your planner is lost
- Dates at a glance
- Neutral inside pages
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- 2 Page monthly calendar (starts on Monday)
- Plenty of extras pages
- No tabs
Price: $24 USD (cheap for a planner!) + shipping (from the USA)
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).
Note: while this planner is dated for 2017 – 2018, the company has released similar versions of the planner each year. I’ve noticed the 2018 – 2019 version appears to have white paper (yay!) instead of the yukky yellow paper in this version.
Approx 0.75″ thick
Dates at a glance
Annual Overview by month
Love this format – this list style monthly is what I use instead of a traditional calendar with boxes for each day.
Week starts on a Monday (consistent with the weekly spread + dates at a glance calendar)
While this planner is aimed at Mom’s (scroll down to the extra pages in this post and you’ll see why), anyone can use this planner. The categories / multiple sections for each day can be used for different family members, but would be ideal for a student or if you like to plan by category (cleaning, project, errands, reminders etc.)

Lots of lined writing space!
USA planner = USA holidays
And some lined notes page at the back. The line spacing is smaller than most planners
There are no tabs in this planner
Cream / yellow paper like this planner has is usually prone to ghosting and bleed through however this one faired better than most.
There was still bleed through for the marker pens but hardly any ghosting for fine tip, gel and ballpoint pens.
Pros of the Planner
- Minimalist color scheme
- Plenty of extra pages
- Dates at a glance calendar, monthly calendar and weekly planner all start on a Monday
- Monthly calendars at the front, weekly spreads afterwards (monthly calendars aren’t interspersed between the weeks)
- USA holidays pre-printed on the monthly and weekly planner
- Heaps of lined notes pages
Cons of the Planner
- Yellow paper
- Paper is very thin – can see the printing of the planner lines, text etc. on the back page
- Pens had bad ghosting / show through on the back side of the paper
- No tabs
- No cover personalisation option
- Unnecessary extra pages (e.g. hotel chain phone numbers, star signs)
- Monthly calendar has a lot of dead space (too many dates at a glance calendars)
- When the week doesn’t end mid-week, the monthly calendar boxes are split in 2 rather than re-starting the numbering on the top row
Would I use this planner?
Maybe. I like categorised weekly planners. It has a functional weekly spread however I’m not a fan of the rest of the planner. I’m intending to try it out but I don’t think it’s a planner I could stick with long-term.
This is the cheapest categorised weekly planner I’ve come across – much cheaper than teacher planners (that have this style of layout), Limelife planners, Plum Paper, The Master Plan family diary etc. so if you want to see if this layout is a good fit for you, the myAgenda is a good option.
