Last year I purchased a Baron Fig planner. It was the first ever Baron Fig product I had ever purchased and I found my planner peace. I have used it the whole year and have been very happy with it. You can read my 2016 review here.  So far, from what I can tell, the 2017 planner is pretty much the same except for one detail. Continue reading “Baron Fig Confidant Planner 2017”

Hobonichi Techo A6 Planner

Hobonichi A6 Planner
Hobonichi Techo A6 Planner, my personal planner of choice.

In 2014, I decided to take the plunge with Hobonichi Techo. I had heard of the Techo before and its fountain pen defying Tomoe River paper was the main reason I knew about it. I had resisted buying the year before only because the checkout system was not in English and I was not sure I understood the guide I was trying to follow. 2014 changed all that because now the order process was all in English. This is my third Techo and I feel fully vested in the format. While I have decided to separate my personal and work planners, the Techo has remained. Now that Jetpens carries the Techo also, the entry barrier has come down quite a bit, although the price might scare some away. Continue reading “Hobonichi Techo A6 Planner”

I had heard of the Baron Fig Confidant series of notebooks but never tried them. When I heard of the planner edition, I thought I should try the notebook. Maybe not the smartest thing since I am invested in Hobonichi, but I figured I could use it for work and keep my Hobonichi for personal planning/journaling.

EightyPages Notebook spine after 3 months of use

I don’t remember exactly how I came across Eightypages.com but I think I either saw a post on Twitter or Instagram and was instantly drawn to their Kickstarter page. Shortly afterward I had a review copy in hand. EightyPages is an outfit out of New York that makes notebooks in small batches. Each edition is limited and as such are individually numbered. My review copy is 00-002. The first number is the volume and the second number is the production number. Based on that definition, I received the second notebook in their production.

Paper Oh Cahier Ondulo A5

On June 7th, I published the Paper Oh Cahier review. Thanks again to Paper Oh for providing this example of the Ondulo in A5.

Paper-oh Cahier Ondulo B7
I remember seeing the Paper-Oh notebook line after a tweet popped up in my feed. The first thing that caught my eye about these notebooks are the covers. The geometric shapes and wavy cardboard look very interesting. The Cahier Ondulo is the wavy cardboard covered version. Ondulo as I understand it, means wavy, so it is a fitting name.
