School and university has just started back home in Sweden and it’s just around the corner here for us in the UK. Flora asked me the other day if I knew any good planners that weren’t too expensive but also not the cheap kind with the metal spiral spine. I replied quickly with a link and said, “look no further”.
I’ve used the Moleskine Weekly Planner since January 2014 and I could not see myself using another one. It’s compact (a bit slimmer than the regular A5 paper), comes in different colours, sizes (pocket, the one I have and a larger that’s close to an A4) and you can choose between hard and soft cover. At the back, as with all traditional Moleskines, there’s a little pocket where you can put important notes such as receipts, post stamps, a small photograph of someone you like, you name it.
My one is the traditional black with a soft cover. What’s great about the Moleskine Weekly Planner is that I have the days on the left side, including an empty bit at the top which I usually use when it’s something that I have all week (like that I’m in Stockholm that week), and just normal ruled lines on the right side. It’s great because I usually don’t need to write a lot on each specific day, but rather lists and reminders that cover the whole week. Sometimes it’s not enough though but I just put some extra post-it notes on that page if I’ve run out of space.
The Moleskine Weekly Planner can be bought both with 12 months, running January to December (the ones I have) but also with 18 months, running from July one year to December the next, which makes it perfect for when you go back to school, university of work. They also do monthly planners and daily, and I might give the daily one a try for 2018 as hopefully with whatever I’m doing after graduation, it will cover a full page for each day.
So hot tip for everyone – the only planner you’ll ever need!
