I can’t remember how I stumbled across the Sprouted Planner but I’m a sucker for gold foil on a planner cover and a dashboard weekly spread. The Sprouted Planner has both, including a different list page on the weekly layout… so let’s take a closer look!

I love all the gold detailing on this sturdy hardcover. There’s a pocket on the inside cover (but it’s very thin and can really only hold the 2 sheets of planner stickers that come with the planner).
Approx. 1.25″ / 2cm thick
At the front are a few overview pages:
- Intentions vs. goals
- Year list
I prefer some structure to my goal pages, this planner only has a prompt page and then lined notes pages.
All 12 of the monthly calendars are clustered together at the front of the planner. As it’s undated there’s no split boxes 🙂
The monthly calendar starts Sunday, which is not consistent with the weekly spread, but since it’s undated you could use whiteout or weekday washi tape to switch it to a Monday week start.
There are different quotes / productivity reminders in the top corner of the right page for each month. There’s a little reminder on the monthly calendar to review your people, things and year list which you created at the front of the planner.
Each box is 1.5″ wide x 1.25″ high, Line spacing in the checklist section is 7mm, 8mm in the sidebar.
After the monthly calendars are the monthly reflection pages with plenty of lined space for your answers. The questions are more journal focused rather than goals. I think this could be a good planner for a high school or college student who is still trying to figure out what career they want, hobbies that interest them etc.
The coil binding lays completely flat no matter where you open the planner.
This weekly spread is the main reason I purchased this planner. One of few planners I’ve found that give you multiple types of writing spaces – lined, checklist, unlined and graph paper. The only thing missing is a dot grid section.
This is how I’m thinking of using this layout:
- Checklist for tasks that don’t need to be done on a certain day
- Weekly planning for blog post planning
- Unlined for goals or projects I’m working on that week
- Bottom blank box – undecided!
- Graph paper for pomodoro tracking (if you don’t track habits monthly, this graph paper could be good for daily task reminders)
The weekly spread starts on a Monday which isn’t consistent with the monthly calendar, but you could easily cover the letters and switch it to a Sunday start.
- The line spacing in the weekly section is 0.5cm (5mm) in the checklist it’s 0.7cm (7mm)
- Each box on the weekly section is 13.7cm long x 2.7cm high
- The squares on the graph are 0.6cm x 0.6cm (6mm)
Lined notes pages
After all of the weekly spreads are 14 double sided lined notes pages (so 28 in total).
The line spacing is 0.6cm / 6mm.
The planner comes with 2 sheets of mostly functional stickers in a neutral color scheme, as well as a removable bookmark ruler.
The paper is bright white and smooth to write on..
.. but unfortunately had bad ghosting and even indenting on the back side of the page for all the pens I tried (gel, ballpoint, fineliner etc.).
Pros of the Planner
- Good page size – enough space to write but not too big to take with you on the go
- Bright white paper
- Open ended – the various sections on the monthly and weekly spreads aren’t labelled so you can customise to suit your needs
- Good proportions – line spacing and amount of writing space
- 2 page monthly reflection
- No split boxes on the monthly calendar
- Undated – start planning anytime or dated version also available
- Sturdy hardcover & 3 cover designs to choose from
- Lay flat binding
- More lined notes pages than most planners include
Cons of the Planner
- Monthly calendar starts Sunday but the weekly spread starts Monday (not consistent)
- No tabs
- No annual reflection
- No annual overview page in the undated version (not even a page with months of the year and space to record events happening each month)
- No monthly planning pages
- Bad ghosting on the back side of the pages
Would I use this planner?
Yes. Weekly spreads like this one are my favorite so I’ll definitely be trying this planner out.
