It’s not very often that I purchase a vertical hourly weekly planner but I made an exception when I saw the weekly spread of the Peacock Paper Planner.
- Size: 7.75″ wide x 10.25″ high
- Wire binding
- Dates at a glance page
- 2 page Monthly calendar (starts on Sunday)
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- Neutral inside pages
- 12 months
- Pocket folders on the front and back covers
- Extra pages – contacts, tax planning & lined notes
- Ships from USA
Let’s take a closer look!

A typical sturdy hardcover but with gold corners too!
Approx 0.5″ thick
Starts Sunday (not consistent with the weekly spread).
There are too many dates at a glance calendars for me – I don’t need to see the next 3 months in advance when there is already an annual dates at a glance page. I’d cover these up with a checklist or habit tracker sticker.
Unfortunately this planner has split boxes:
The main reason I wanted this planner is because of the weekly spread that has 15 minute timeslots which isn’t very common.
The writing space per 15 minutes is obviously small but I think this planner is one of the best ratios of page size to writing space… Except for those dates at a glance calendars again.
Each line / 15 minute timeslot is 3mm high.
The schedule runs from 7am to 9pm.
Saturday and Sunday share the same column with Sunday being just lined space which could be a dealbreaker for some.
Dates at a glance
One of very few planners I’ve come across that have the holidays printed on the same page as the dates at a glance page <3
The extra pages make me think this planner would be best suited to someone that is self employed or a direct sales consultant.
While it’s nice to see the entire year’s worth of tabs at once, the tabs are really small. It is good though, that they include tabs for the extras sections at the back of the planner – travel, contacts etc.
As these are adhered directly to the hardcover there isn’t much space in the pocket folder. An enveloper or 2 and it’ll be full.
Pros of the Planner
- Not too heavy for a hardbound planner
- 15 minute timeslots (hard to find in an hourly planner)
- Tax planning pages
- Minimalist black and white – can add plenty of color with pens and highlighters without them clashing with the planner
Cons of the Planner
- The month at a glance calendars on the monthly and weekly spread take up too much space
- No monthly planning pages
- Split boxes on the monthly calendar
Would I use this planner?
I don’t use vertical hourly planners as I have a separate digital calendar for my day job. I recommend this planner if you’re self-employed, a student, freelancer or direct sales consultant.
