If you’re a visual person, you can watch the brief unboxing video on my IGTV @hobominci. Otherwise, you can read about my purchase choice below.
This is my 4th year using Hobonichi. I have used the A6 English planner, A5 Cousin Avec and the MegaWeeks. Out of the 3, I personally love the MegaWeeks because you have just enough space to write down your To-do’s and still have room for a bit of creative journaling. It seems befitting for my busy schedule. Furthermore, it is small enough for me to carry it with me everywhere.
What I wasn’t expecting for the Year 2020 was the fact that I enrolled in a part time degree programme of which I found that using the MegaWeeks was not suitable. I needed something that I could journal in my most intimate feelings, thoughts and activities whilst at the same time being able to plan my day and tick things off a checklist.
I ended up buying a 5 year Hobonichi Techo and a mini weekly planner, said to be the companion to the A6 planner. If only I could have the Cousin Avec Monthly and Weekly layout but without the daily pages. Is there such a planner?? That would be useful I think for students. Or I could use the Kokuyo loose leafs instead. Surely they have a monthly and weekly template?
I am extremely excited to see if I could be consistent in my 5 year Hobonichi entry. It will probably be filled with the most mundane things in life although when you reminisce on these moments, they are quite interesting actually. It is so common yet so special. Cause regardless of what one thinks, that one moment never repeats itself the exact way it happens for the first time.
