Simple Daily Planner Printables to Keep Your Days Running Smoothly

Whether you need the extra room for planning busy days or you just like to see each day on its own, a simple daily planner can fill so many different planning needs. Today’s reader requested printable was actually requested by a few different people, all looking for a simple daily planner page.

Sometimes a simple daily planner can better fit our needs than a weekly planner.

Today's reader requested Simple Daily Planners were requested by four people.

When four different requests for a similar printable popped up in the requests folder I knew that it was a printable I had to make. The requests included features like:

  • hourly time slots
  • to-do list
  • segmented to-do lists with specific categories
  • space for your top three priorities or tasks
  • something in pastel
  • full and half-size

None of the requesters left their names or emails so I couldn’t ask for their feedback. I hope that these daily planners fit their needs and yours too.

The Simple Daily Planners

These daily pages were designed to be simple but effective. I took a number of similar requests and rolled them all into one.

Each page has room in the top left corner for the date. Right under that is a space to note your top three priorities for the day. Then the page is divided in half, with a timed section on the left and segmented to-do lists on the right.

I purposely left the segmented to-do list sections untitled to allow you to customize them to fit your needs.

  • Change them up each day
  • Use stickers to label them
  • Stick a habit tracker or other sticker between them
  • Leave them blank

The sky is the limit for ways you can use the to-do list portion.

This printable is a single day per page. This gives you a lot of room for planning out your day without feeling too cramped. It also allowed for a longer hourly section, seventeen hours to schedule if you need them.

Having more hours in the timed section has been something many people have requested over the years and I’m happy to be able to have that option available for you.

Simple Daily Planner Printable in full-size. (8.5" x 11" or US Letter) Just print and put in your favourite binder or disc bound book.

The full-size simple daily planners come with two pages in each file. This way, they’re duplex printing friendly for those that have a duplexer on their printer.


Like the full-size version, the half-size is also one single page per day. If you prefer to use a landscape format for your planner, these could also work as two days per page printables if you’re using a full-size (US Letter) planner.

Simple Daily Planner Printable in half-size (5.5" x 8.5") Print on normal letter paper and then cut in half. Fits most A5 planners and mini binders.

I also made sure to include the second page for making duplex printing easier. This means that you get four days in the one file.

There are a variety of other daily planners over on the Daily Planner Printable page. If these ones aren’t quite what you’re looking for, you might find one that better fits your needs there.

A Printing Tip Before You Go

I can’t wait to print a few of these for my planner. During really busy seasons a daily planner can be a wonderful resource for staying on track. Sometimes I’ll switch to daily pages just for the extra blank space it allows between tasks.

Seeing a busy, full, schedule written out on a weekly layout can sometimes feel overwhelming to me. That’s why I always find that I switch back and forth between using a daily planner and a weekly one.

I keep a few daily pages in all my planners for just that reason. Even my main planner, which this year has been a Happy Planner, has some daily pages tucked in the back that I can pull out when I need them.

I followed this tutorial from Laura at Sunny Day Family which will walk you through how to print any full-size printable so that it fits the Happy Planner dimensions. Even the mini dimensions.

The only part that I haven’t quite figured out is how to print them double-sided this way. If I do figure it out I’ll let you know. For now, I just use the back for notes and doodles.

    What size binder is best for half size planner pages?

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Kassandra, that’s really a personal preference. Most mini binders will fit the half-size sheet. Most A5 binders will fit them as well. The Arc Jr fits them nicely if you prefer discs over rings. I’ve used Dokibooks, Webster’s Pages and I now the Recollection planners all fit the half-size well. I hope that helps.

      Thank you so much Karyn, I’m happy to hear that you like these ones. I hope you find them useful.

  3. Hi, fantastic printables, thanks for sharing them. I just wanted to point out in the simple daily the #4 line was skipped in the first numbered area.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Jessice, thank you for your lovely comment. I’m really happy to hear that you like them. There isn’t supposed to be a #4 line in the first numbered section. That area is for your top three tasks, or if you follow the From Scattered to Sane series, the three tasks in your focus area for the day. I’m sorry for the confusion.
