The answer depends on what you are using your planner for and what you need your planner for. Both are great layouts, and both have their own pros and cons. Today, we will look at both planners, and then, hopefully, by the end of this post, you will know what planner style is best for you, daily or weekly.
Plan everything in your week at a high level overview. Weeklynplanners don’t offer much extra room for minut details.
Weekly Planner Pros
- If you have lots to plan throughout your week weekly layouts offer you room to document your plans
- If you have multiple schedules to keep track of(kids, spouse, yours, work, business, home…)weekly planner allows you to keep track of multiple schedules with ease
- With a weekly layout you are able to see everything in your week at once
Weekly Planner Cons
- If you are a detail oriented planner, you loose thr ability to document a lot of details
- So many different layout options available, it can be hard to choose
Having your day on one page is nice because it offers you the ability to be as detailed as you like to be, plenty of room for all of your events, and to do lists. With daily planners, these tend to be larger as there are 365 pages just for your plans plus any note pages, tracker pages, weekly overviews, and monthly pages.
Daily Planner Pros
- Lots of room to plan
- Room for more details to be documented
- Ability to track more
Daily Planner Cons
- Could have too many details and it be overwhelming
- Daily Planners are thick with 365 days plus trackers and monthly Planner pages
- Most have same layout with not a lot of room to customize the look
- If you don’t have enough going on in your day it can look very empty and feel like a waste
My preferred style
You won’t find this as much help, but I use both weekly and daily layouts. I have a personal at home planner I use weekly layouts, my work planner I utilize daily layouts!
