I’m a little picky when it comes to planners, I think it’s the reason why I love the bullet journal so much because you can set it up exactly how you want it. But as much as I love my bullet journal I found I was spending way too much time every month getting it set up. So I decided to do a little research into undated planners and eventually came across this Seize The Day planner by Iconic.
Iconic make two different versions of this planner, you can get the daily planner which has 12 undated monthly pages and 120 undated daily pages. Or you can get the version I have which has 12 monthly and 52 weekly pages. I think the thing I like most about this planner is it’s really simple, you don’t get any of the unwanted extras that might come with a filofax or something similar (how many people really need a metric to imperial converter and a world map anyway). Literally all you get in the planner is the monthly and weekly pages with a few blank pages at the end.
Everything else you have to do yourself. They monthly and weekly pages are left blank so you can set them up exactly how you want. And I actually really enjoy that, I liked spending time setting up my planner and making it as simple or as complicated as I want. I like trying a different layout every week and maybe even incorporating some stickers.
But I also like that most of the setup has already been done for me so I don’t spend quite so much time on it. The only problem I have with this planner is that the rings aren’t quite big enough. I find that the pages are occasionally getting caught while I’m flipping through the planner. But I have also created some bookmarks which have bulked it out just a bit and that may be causing the problem.
If you’re in the UK the best place to get this planner is either The Journal Shop or Sticker Stack. It retails around £16. I’m not sure where you can get it outside the UK but I imagine it’s the sort of thing you could find on Amazon.
