Pocket planners are perfect for staying on top of a busy schedule while you’re out and about. A traditional planner can be difficult to travel with. A smaller size planner around 5″ by 8″, however, is easy to store in a handbag or, get this, a pocket, making it an excellent choice for folks on the go.

There are daily pocket planners to keep track of tasks by the hour, weekly planners for bigger-picture scheduling, or monthly planners for keeping track of all-day or week-long events like big grocery sales or vacation dates. Monthly pocket planners tend to be the cheapest and last you longer since some cover multiple years. To really illustrate those savings you can think of it in terms of price per year. So for a three-year planner, you can take the initial cost and divide it by three.

Traditional calendars that start in January tend to be most expensive at the start of the new school year when everyone’s buying school supplies. I find that it’s best to shop in early summer to save the most. However, undated planners don’t usually see those same sales since they’re evergreen.

Regardless of what options you’re looking for, I picked out the best pocket planners of all types for the best prices.

Best Daily Pocket Planners

1. Erin Condren Petite Three-Month Planner

Erin Condren is an icon in the stationery world. Luckily she makes a three-month pocket planner ($7.25, Erin Condren) for those on the go. For less than $10, you get two sticker sheets, a built-in pocket, and three months’ worth of daily layouts and monthly overviews.


2. Undated Daily Planner

I like this option ($8.69, Amazon) because each day has a full two-page spread complete with a section for notes, a habit tracker, a to-do and top priorities list, and an hourly schedule. I recommend the black option because it’s $0.50 cheaper than the pink one.


3. Daily Planner with To-Do List

This product ($11.97, Amazon) is perfect for tracking wellness habits like exercise, meals, water, and gratitude. It also has a by-the-hour breakdown and to-do list with a top three priorities section. And did I mention it’s currently on sale?
