The Simplified Planner by Emily Ley is known for being a focused planner with a clean design. The Weekly Edition is equally as focused and simplified. With the same design elements and intention as the original Simplified Planner, the Weekly is perfect for anyone who prefers a bird’s eye view of the week and to hone in on a few things per day.
The Weekly Edition comes in a beautiful, formal bookbound style with four cover designs to choose from. It’s smaller than the Daily Edition in both thickness and height, so it’s easier to tote around. It feels like a fancy journal with all the functionality of a streamlined planner.
The Simplified Planner is all about keeping things honed down on the necessities, so there aren’t any budgeting, goal setting, or other list-style pages at the start or end of the planner. There is a bucket list that you can use to write down fun things you want to do, goals you want to accomplish, or projects you want to finish. There are also no notes pages in the planner. However, there is a pocket folder at the front of the planner with a sheet of fun decorative stickers for you to use on the monthly calendars.
The Weekly Layout
The Emily Ley Weekly layout is divided into two parts for each day. The left side is plain lines, which can be used to write down the times of your appointments/meetings/plans/etc or random notes for the day. The right side is a to-do list with check circles. Below here is a box for your dinner plans. The weekend days share a space, so Saturday is plain lines and Sunday has three lines with four prefilled in check circles for you. These are to help you prepare for the week to come. Each has a dinner box as well.
Who is The Weekly Simplified Planner Best For?
Anyone who prefers to keep things simple is obviously an ideal user of the The Weekly Edition of The Simplified Planner. This layout and the size of the planner also make it a great option for students. Because students typically have backpacks weighed down with textbooks, the Weekly Edition doesn’t add more unnecessary weight, and the focused weekly layout is flexible enough for students. However, students who like to have a very busy, robust academic and extracurricular life might find the space limiting.
High school students can definitely benefit from it, as well as moms looking for a planner to keep the big things organized.
