Weekly planners that have dot grid instead of lined or blank writing space are rare – hence why I wanted to show you the NatureArt TerminPlaner!
This planner is from my 2nd Europe stationery haul – see what else I found here.
Heading to Germany soon? See my favorite German stationery shops here.

Let’s take a closer look!

The cover is a softcover (i.e. bendy) – it’s textured and feels like that fabric you find on outdoor pillow cases.
If you want the brand / website details to look up this planner, here they are:
0.8cm thick (i.e.very thin!)
At the front of the planner is an annual overview…
followed by what I assume are national holidays in Germany:
All of the months are clustered together at the front of the planner. They have a different format to most planners – vertical list style (my favorite!)
After the months are all of the weekly spreads starting on Mondays:
This is the reason I bought this planner: dot grid writing space! The dots are 6mm apart (a bit bigger than most planners that have 5mm spacing).
At the back of the planner are 4 sets of these checklist and dot grid pages. I’m going to try these for a weekly spread (days of the week on the dot grid).
The paper held up ok. There was ghosting but no bleed through except for the MAMBI stamps
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Very lightweight
- Dot grid writing space on the weekly spread
- Months are clustered together at the start of the planner
Cons of the Planner
- No tabs
- No pocket folder
- Needs more checklist and notes pages
- Paper prone to pen and highlighter ghosting
Would I use this planner?
Yes. Horizontal is my 2nd favorite weekly format. I really like the dot grid for each day – because without this, the planner would be too much like every other horizontal planner.
This planner would be ideal if you want a second planner with a small page size & lightweight that you can take with you on the go.
