|I want something else after 5 years of Moleskines|
I love notebooks and planners.
For the last 5 years I’ve been using a Moleskine planner. I use the Extra Large version, which is slightly smaller than A4. I need the space.
What I love about the Moleskine planner XL
What I like about the Moleskine planner is that you’ve got the days of the week on your left, and on the right side there’s room for notes. That makes this planner very suitable for me as a mom and as a blogger. Because on the left side I can write down appointments, school vacations, days off etc. And on the right side I can write blog post ideas and stuff.
What I don’t like about the Moleskine planner XL
However, there’s one thing I don’t like about the Moleskine planner XL. It only comes in a couple of colours. Whereas the smaller Moleskines come in great designs like Alice in Wonderland and Le Petit Prince, I’m stuck with a plain cover. I even messaged Moleskine through Facebook, but unfortunately that didn’t help. Because this year the Moleskine XL only comes in the boring variety. Again.
Also, they all look the same which makes it hard to look something up. It’s hard to tell the year of my 5 Moleskines.
So that is why I find myself straying from my relationship with Moleskine. It’s their own fault! I can’t help but look around at other planners.
Here’s what I’m looking for a in a planner
- It should be about A4 size.
- I like to have lots of space to write things.
- I want the diary to be dated. This is why I don’t buy a bullet journal. I don’t want to have to write down the dates and days of the week myself.
- I want it to look good.
- I don’t like planners that have a timetable in them.
It’s October, so I have some time to find my perfect planner. I hope I find one. If not, I’ll be buying the same boring Moleskine planner again.
What I would like the most is for Moleskine to offer their XL model with a nice cover too.
What kind of planner do you use?
