Over the past year, I’ve reviewed 10 different ADHD planners.

These planners are often recommended for those of us with ADHD. I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some I couldn’t even use while others I could see the potential if they changed a few things.

So, how do they stack up against each other?

Here are the 10 planners ranked from unusable to would (or did!) incorporate into my planner stack. YMMV.

  1. CanPlan Mental Health – this is definitely made for someone with more than just ADHD
  2. The ADHD Planner – so much potential but execution is lacking
  3. Essential Daily Planner – great if you have zero weekend plans or to-dos
  4. Mudra Life Planner – ugh, the size is the worst and there’s no monthly view between weeks
  5. Tied with #6 Living Well Planner – the planning part is fantastic but the goal setting and budget need work
  6. Tied with #5 Wilkii Planner – great idea but a tad overwhelming, poorly designed monthly view
  7. The Planner Pad – high learning curve but it makes sense once you figure it out. Undated has no monthly view
  8. Tied with #9 Hero’s Journal – great for projects or goals. Daily, undated (no monthly) but it one you can use as needed for those busier days
  9. Tied with #8 Clever Fox Premium Edition – loved the weekly view with dashboard! But all the months are together at the front of planner, not between weeks
  10. Live Rich Planner – it has a lot of space to track everything but you need to remember to go back to the monthly and weekly dashboards

Linked to the original review in case you are curious.

No planner will ever be perfect. Some will get pretty close and if you can make some adjustments (with whiteout or stickers) could be just right for you!

What planner do you use? What do you like/dislike about it? What planners would you like to see next in the ADHD planner review series? Lemme know in the comments!
