Recently we received the following message on Instagram:
I’ve been debating about downsizing to a smaller planner for a while. I currently use the Quo Vadis Minister weekly planner. What is the next size down in a weekly planner with a similar format?
The Minister is one of our most popular weekly planners, and that same weekly layout comes in several sizes.
(For more information on each planner including where to buy, click on the links.)
The Minister has a page size of 6 1/4 by 9 3/8 inches. The next size down is the Executive, which has a page size of 6 1/4 inches square. You can see in the photo below with the Executive at the top and the Minister under it, the Executive is the same width as the Minister but is shorter.
If you want something even smaller than the Executive, the next size down is the pocket size Business weekly planner. It has the exact same weekly layout, with a page size of 4 by 6 inches. So the Business (6 inches tall) is almost the same height as the Executive (6 1/4 inches tall) but is narrower. Below you can see the Business at the top, Executive in the middle, and Minister at the bottom.
Below you can see the Business (top) compared to the Executive (bottom).
If you want something larger than the Minister, it’s the President weekly planner. Again it has the exact same weekly layout, just larger. The President has a page size of 8 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches and is great if you have lots to write each week.
Below you can see the pocket size Business at the top at 4 by 6 inches; next down is the Executive at 6 1/4 inches square; then the Minister at 6 1/4 inches wide and 9 3/8 inches tall; at the bottom is the President at 8 1/2 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches tall.
Below you can see the Minister (top) compared to the President (bottom).
Something to note: the Minister and Academic Minister weekly planners also have monthly planning pages, but the other sizes do not.
Below you can see the planners closed. Even the larger planners are very portable because the books are slim and not bulky, so they are easy to carry in your bag. For size reference the planners are President (blue); Minister (red); Executive (brown); Business (light green). (Each planner is available with a wide selection of cover materials and colors.)
