Favourite Things #Snapshot #Hobonichi #2016

I am definitely a #PlanItOnPaper gal. I love my tech but for actually planning tasks and then ticking off/crossing off tasks done, nothing beats a paper planner for me. I also prefer a bound lay-flat planner rather than a ringed planner. Last year was my introduction to the Hobonichi – a Japanese bound planner system (available in 3 sizes) with Tomoe River Paper (Very high quality fountain pen friendly paper) – and for my first year using Hobonichi, I bought the Hobonichi Cousin (A5). I loved the Hobonichi Cousin so much that I knew that I wanted to get all 3 sizes this year. I love compartmentalising my planning. I like having an everything hold-all planner – both personal and professional – which I prefer in an A5 size. But I knew I wanted separate, smaller planners for both my personal life and a dedicated planner/logbook for my writing.



This year I decided to get all three sizes:

  1. Hobonichi Cousin [A5]*
  2. Hobonichi Weeks [Wallet Size]**
  3. Hobonichi English Planner [A6]***

Covers – I opted to go with the SSack Silicon Covers +* this year. I wanted a sleek, modern, low-profile look. I’m not into cutesy/bulky covers but I do love brightly coloured covers. The SSack Silicon Covers are perfect for me.
