Most horizontal planners are unlined with just 1 big box for each day. The Peacock Paper planner, however, has 3 sections for each day on it’s horizontal weekly spread!
- Size: 7.5″ wide x 9″ 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, travel planning & lined notes
- Ships from USA
Let’s take a closer look!

A typical sturdy hardcover but with gold corners too!
Approx 1″ thick
At the front of the planner is a pocket folder and dates at a glance calendars before the dated planning pages.
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
Each month has a 2 page monthly calendar, a monthly budget and 1 lined notes page.
The monthly calendar starts Sunday (not consistent with the weekly spread).
I’m not sure about the gifts & cards section but this could be easily covered up with some whiteout or a header sticker.
The appointment planner (by this same company) has 3 dates at a glance calendars on the monthly spread so I was pleased this horizontal version only has 1 (less wasted space).
Unfortunately this planner has split boxes:
This planner has both a horizontal weekly spread and a weekly overview page and a lined notes page. So if you find that only 2 pages to plan your week isn’t quite enough, this planner could be a good option.
The notes page could be used for pre-planning the week, project planning, journaling etc.
Saturday and Sunday share the same space as 1 weekday which could be a dealbreaker for some. It would be more practical to remove the ‘next week’ box and extend the size of Saturday and Sunday. You could convert part of the lined notes page for each week if you need more space too.
At the back of the planner are 3 tabs:
- Travel planning
The travel planning pages aren’t much – just 2 of the same list style page..
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.
There is a 2nd pocket folder at the back of the planner. It’s a nice extra but as it’s 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
- 4 pages to plan each week
- Minimalist black and white – can add plenty of color with pens and highlighters without them clashing with the planner
Cons of the Planner
- No monthly planning pages
- Split boxes on the monthly calendar
- Travel planning pages are just 2 lists – not detailed enough
- Start date is not consistent between the weekly and monthly calendar
- The pocket folders are very small
Would I use this planner?
Possibly. I like that the horizontal weekly spread has a different layout and lined writing space.
