Vertical hourly planners rarely come in a sewn bound format, let alone in a compact page size – the Prettysweeeet weekly planner is one of very few so let’s take a look!

Go through the planner with me:

The cover is the same faux leather cover that most sewn bound notebooks have.
Just under 1″ thick
How to use the planner
At the front of the planner are instructions for using the pages in the planner and a helpful contents page.
There aren’t many goal planning overview pages at the start of this planner and those that are included are too small to write more than a few words in each section.
There’s a mix of prompter questions and then you can write your goals in the 9 pre-filled categories. It would be better if the right page was split into 4 pages to give more room to write.
After you choose your goals you can prioritise which ones are short term and long term
And then create your action plan
There are only 3 pages to write your action plans for each goal which is nowhere near enough. I tend to use 3 – 5 pages per goal (and with a larger page size – usually Happy Planner classic size).
After the goal pages is the first monthly section.
There are no tabs but there are black edges for each month.
Each month has:
- Monthly divider page – blank so you can do whatever you like such as add photos printed with your Poooliprint or write your favorite quotes
- 2 Page Monthly calendar (Sunday start)
- 2 page weekly planning (Monday start) x 5
- 2 Page monthly meal planner (Sunday start)
- 1 page monthly workout planner
- 1 page monthly financial overview
- 3 Page Monthly summary questions
As this planner is undated you can start planning anytime.
The boxes for each day are 3.5″ wide x 2.5″ high.
There are 6 rows on the calendar so there’s no need to do split boxes
There are different motivational / words of wisdom quotes for each month
At the back of each month are summary questions before the next month starts.
The weekly planner starts on Sunday which is consistent with the monthly calendar.
The schedule runs from 6am to midnight which should suit everyone’s schedule. If there are timeslots you know you won’t use your could whiteout the numbers and add checkboxes for daily focus as the ‘focus of the day’ section isn’t going to fit more than 2 – 3 words.
Unlike some vertical hourly planners (especially of this page size), this one doesn’t condense Saturday and Sunday into one column – each day has an equal planning space.
At the back is:
- Bill checklist
- 4 Page end of year review
- 4 types of notes pages – blank, lined, graph and timetable
I like this bill checklist page but lines between the columns and rows to keep your handwriting straight would make it even better.
Finally! A planner that includes a structured end of year summary
5 blank notes pages
4 lined pages
2 grid notes pages
The creator suggests using this page for your timetable but I’d use this for graphs e.g. tracking savings or blog subscribers growth.
There are 4 of these pages.
There are dated calendars at the back of the planner however the rest of the pages are undated.
There are 2 sheets of functional icons and phrases stickers in the pocket folder.
Pros of the Planner
- Long daily schedule from 6am to midnight
- Undated – start planning anytime
- Comes with 2 sheets of functional planner stickers
- Pretty cover (as pretty as a black cover can get!)
- Plenty of monthly planning pages (which most planners don’t include)
- Pocket folder
- 2 Ribbon bookmarks
- Notes pages in 4 formats – blank, lined, graph and timetable
- Detailed review pages – monthly and end of year
- White pages
Cons of the Planner
- No traditional tabs (that stick out), but at least the pages are marked
- Difficult to find (could only find it on Amazon)
- Not all pages lay flat on their own
- Unlined writing space throughout the planner
Would I use this planner?
No. I don’t use vertical weekly planners, nor do I plan by the hour. I like all of the extra pages so if there was a horizontal weekly or dashboard weekly layout I’d try it. Lined or dot grid writing space would be better to, instead of blank writing space.
