If you read my previous post, you’ll know that I have spent some time contemplating how exactly I was going to organize myself next year.
With 2016’s Hobonichi Techo starting out with some half-page days on this Wednesday, December 16th, I figure now might be a good time to share a few ideas on how you might consider using your page-a-day planner, aside from using it to legitimately plan out your appointments and daily life.
I decided to use my Hobonichi, in a very broad way, as a gratitude journal. This is perfect because I can take my time to use my inkiest or flex pens, and just focus on a few positives.
December is mostly about the holidays, but of course as the 2015 comes barreling to a close, I’m thinking about what notebooks and planning system I’m going to be using in 2016. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, mainly because I want to start the year off right. I think it must be my OCD that says pressure’s on if I’ve got the opportunity to start on January 1st and do the whole year off.
I’m mainly going to be using four things:
1. Midori Traveler’s Notebook Regular Size
2. Hobonichi Techo
3. Quo Vadis Habana (+possibly others) for journaling
4. Midori MD Notebook A4
“This is a lot…” you say. I can only agree. What can I say. It’s what got me into this hot mess to begin with. You know, opening a stationery shop. And then moving in behind it.
