Leuchtturm Weekly Planners (medium size)
For those of you looking for a weekly planner with all seven days as full-size vertical columns, here it is!!
Leuchtturm 1917 does this hard-to-find format beautifully. Every day, even Sunday, has a full size column with a space for notes at the bottom of each day.
The 8th column has monthly calendars and extra space for notes.
I've seen planners before that have all 7 days as full-size columns, but they've been desk size, in the range of 8 1/2 by 10 inches or larger. The thing about a 7-days planner is that it needs to be small enough to carry with you everywhere: work, home, weekend plans, school events etc.
These planners measure almost 6 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches tall, which is a great size: portable enough to fit in just about any bag (unless you carry a very small one), but the pages are large enough to have plenty of writing space. (Alternatively, if you need an even smaller book, Leuchtturm also makes these planners in Pocket size.)
Leuchtturm 1917 very generously sent me their medium size 18 month weekly planner for 2010 (which goes from 1 September 2009 through 28 February 2011) and 12 month weekly planner for 2011. Except for the dates, the features of these planners are identical.
In addition to the weekly pages, these planners have monthly calendars with the months as columns.
These planners also have last year, this year and next year planning calendars:
There is also a chart of international holidays, and project planning pages:
Inside the back of the book there is a card that is lined on one side and quadruled on the other, stickers to label the cover and spine of your book, and an booklet insert for the back pocket:
The booklet insert has undated monthly planners:
and tabbed address pages:
The planners both have a hard black cover, elastic strap, ribbon placemarker and back pocket.
At this time, I don't know where you can buy the medium size 2011 Leuchtturm planners. Cynthia at Journaling Arts told me she may consider carrying these planners. If you are interested, you can contact her to ask if she will be selling these planners.
