We are making waves through this Planning for 2019 series. Welcome to day 13 of blogmas! I hope that you are enjoying and narrowing down the right planner for you. For those that do not want to commit to a weekly, let alone daily planner, an undated option may be best for you. There’s popular options available in stores and online. The best part, you start whenever you want. If you miss a day, it doesn’t matter. Your planner, your terms.
As always, be sure to click the links throughout this post for related posts and links to purchase items/similar styles featured.
There are many undated planners on the market, but here’s a few popular options –
The Passion Planner and Panda Planner are similar in style. I personally have used the Panda Planner.
Disclaimer: The Panda Planner was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own.
These planners, while undated, are available in 4 sizes and colors:
- Classic (5.25” X 8.25”)
- Pro (8.5” X 11”)
- Weekly (8.5” X 11”)
- Via | hardcover (8.5” X 11”)

Effective time management begins with understanding the difference between “#todo” and “#today” My #anxiety makes my weekly to do list unbearable to look at and overwhelming to tackle. I never thought I’d need a daily planner, let alone one with an hourly section, but this #dailyplanner is EVERYTHING I’ve been needing, missing, wanting in a work planner. Finally, a system that works. An added bonus, my work day is no longer a drag as I am focused on just what needs to get done TODAY not tomorrow or the next day.
The one that I used when I was working in corporate was the Panda Planner Pro. The daily pages will work throughout a 6 month period. What I loved most about the daily spread was the hourly (schedule) section. Each day I was able to maximize my time as the planner was spacious enough to hold all the information. I usually don’t use a planner as large as this for personal use, but for work it was ideal as I had space to had additional notes, keep track of tasks and meeting, and target my goals for the day.
There were certain sections I modified at the top of the top of the page as they didn’t apply to my work. As for the monthly, I used it as a social media scheduler as I created content for my various clients.
I’ve used both a classic and big Happy Planner, but I never found the use for a mini. I love the size, but still, no use for it. When I found one on sale at Tuesday Morning, I thought why not. I’m also not a fan of horizontal planners as I am a lister, vertical works better. Still, even with this planner you can break it apart whether it’s with stickers or just using a pen. If you’re someone that writes paragraphs in your planner, the horizontal layout will be a great choice to compliment your writing style.
Michaels Recollections line has a variety of undated planners including vertical, horizontal, daily, and to do. The vertical style features boxes which leaves room for a decorative touch, but also room to break up your top priorities by day. The daily would work best for those that have a longer schedule to do. If you want less of a commitment, the to planner gives plenty of flexibility.
If you are looking to give someone a planner as a gift, an undated option is great. They can use it on their time and not have to worry about it going to waste. Take note and pay attention when dating these planners. Keep it safe and use a pencil.
