I Heart Clever Fox
I've been on a planner journey this year and have purchased 7 and watched a ton of additional video reviews for the ones that I haven't. This planner was purchased somewhere in the middle of all of that. And now that I have a clearer vision of what my planner needs are (which is so different for all of us - and it actually takes awhile to determine your likes, dislikes and the elements that you actually use/are most important), I went back to and am sticking with this one. (Though I'm tempted by the Clever Fox Pro for a variety of reasons!) Anyway, I think no matter what your planner needs, you would not go wrong with a Clever Fox product as they do offer a very nice variety and one is likely to suit. And the quality is good, and the company is super-responsive, and always tweaking their designs. PROS: I love the paper. The 120 gsm weight and bright white color are awesome (I hate dark cream/yellow looking paper). I get no bleed-through or ghosting with gel pens, highlighters (as I did with other planners). I love the cover. It has a soft, inviting/touchable, but sturdy feel. (Other planners had a cheaper feel.) I love the binding. (I find that other companies say they have a lay-flat binding, but this one really works. And has not fallen apart either, but I would have to update on that.) 3 bookmarks, an elastic, and back pocket are non-negotiable for me, and all are present here. The layout of this daily is pretty unique and I love it for the following reasons. 1) I love that it's 6 months instead of 3 (more common with dailies). But still nicely comfortable in the hand and easy to transport. 2) It has ONE daily page. (Many dailies have two pages for each day, which is too much for me, and weekly layouts tend to have too little space for me. This seems just right!) 3) The way it is set up is just so smart and I have seen no other planner set up this way: The monthly spreads are at the front. Then each week starts with one weekly PREVIEW page (one element of which is a habit tracker, another must for me) Then 7 daily pages (one for each day). Then one BLANK (dot-grid) page. Then one weekly REVIEW page. 4) 23 additional blank pages at the end. By "blank" I mean that these are all dot-grid pages, which I totally prefer to either entirely blank or lined pages. I think the color and sizing of the dot grid is perfect. (I had read reviews where it was darker and closer together in older versions, but not in mine. It is a nice med-light grey about 5 mm apart.) So you get basically 2 blank pages per week if you want to look at it at that way. (one within each week, and then one at the back, minus a couple), which is SO great (and so much more than a lot of other planners) CONS: The ONLY con for me is that I don't require so much of a scheduling component (but I'm sure many people do, so I totally get why it's set up like that). I just washi tape over the numbers and use one side for scheduling, and the other side for gratitude and reflection/notes. But that is SO minor compared to the drawbacks, or much more extensive hacking I've had to do to try to make other planners work. Other tiny notes: I might add a few more goal or project planning-type pages at the front, but the fact there are some there already is great. I would add a 2020-2021 tiny calendars spread. And add just a few more blank pages at the back (so it's at least 26.) But again TOTALLY minor stuff compared to the ways other options fall short for me!
Unbelievable Deal and Impact
This is the most EFFECTIVE, MOTIVATING tool I have ever found for planning out productivity and getting moving on my projects. I have looked for something like this for years and finally you've created it for me. It's simply a question of quality of life. If you have big ideas, dreams, places you want your life to take you, you need a plan that isn't insane or rigid. You need tools that work with human foibles and the limits of time and resources. This planner lets you be ambitious and dream big while not getting down on yourself for imperfections. It has goals but it's not goal obsessed. It's about living your life in such a way that your daily behavior will eventually instantiate your goals. It's about positive self-regard and always being able to see what you've done RIGHT. Too many productivity tools make you feel like you're the problem, like you're the reason your dreams aren't happening. Clever Fox planner lets you see that you are fine exactly as you are and while your dreams are counting on you, life is larger than something as banal as simple goal setting. it's organic, holistic and joyful. From the form factor to the materials to the thoughtful design, you won't find a better way to act on your best self.
I have been an Erin Condren/Plum Paper planner user for eight years. I have been battling severe anxiety for some time. I realized that as fun as my pretty stickers and complex "perfect" planners were, they were perpetuating my anxiety. Clever fox is the perfect blend of simplicity and function!!!
EXCELLENT. PERFECT. A MUST HAVE.
I absolutely love organization and planning my days, weeks, months. This daily planner gives me the layout of organizing my day without me having to think of all the headers, priority tabs etc. It even has time frames per day! I don't plan on going back to a simple store bought planner, ever! I just purchased the weekly planner for my business, cannot wait to get that one this week. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE!
Excellent Daily Planner
I have been using this planner since January 2022, and it is great! I have been looking for a more complete planner for years and have been somewhat unhappy with the ones I've used in the past because I always have to add to them. The undated daily planner incorporates almost everything I need in a planner and keeps me extremely organized.
