This is my second year buying a Hobonichi Planner. Last year it was harder to get one, and the website was SO confusing. Well, it is in Japanese. After using the Google yen to dollar converter to make sure I wasn’t about to charge $300 to my debit card, I pretty much had to cross my fingers and pray that I ordered the right thing.
This year they have made the website much friendlier.
There is a big difference in size between the different planners, and the one I got last year only has monthly and daily…no weekly.
So here is the question…what are the qualities that a planner needs to have to make it work for me? What makes one planner better than another?
I need a monthly calendar. I really like having the extra space on the side for notes and stickers!
This weekly view is different from the Erin Condren and Plum Paper Planner weekly views that I have been using. This one is laid out by hours, not by morning/afternoon/evening. I love it because I have lots of room for my wash tape!
I REALLY like having a daily view, because I like to use it as a Bullet Planner. There is a time schedule on the left side of the page, and the right side is wide open for notes and lists!
I really like the range of covers they have. You can spend a little, or a whole heck of a lot. There are lots of pockets and places to put my stencils and stickers.
There are some great extra pages for birthdays/anniversaries, gifts and schedules.
And then there is the section of Japanese pages that I cannot figure out. One seems to be on postage, and one looks to be about sushi!
