Day 3 of Using My Planners: Hobonichi Weeks Portable Planner
Welcome to Day 3 of Using My Planners! The title is pretty self-explanatory, and my goal is to inspire you to grab those empty planners you no doubt have, and find your favorite way to start using them every day! You don’t need a ton of planners, and you don’t even need the ones I’m showing you, but I know you’ll find at least one useful tidbit of information in here that you can start utilizing today!
To preface, if you don’t know which planners I use, in order of the posts…a Hardbound Passion Planner, a Softcover Passion Planner, a Hobonichi Weeks, Simplified Planner, and finally, Powersheets. Each day this week I will have a new post explaining how I use each of this without getting overwhelmed. It was actually a labor of love to almost teach myself how to use each of these in a way that works for me.
Disclaimer: This is just what works for ME. You probably don’t need five planners a day to live your normal life. But I hope this helps you out in case you have fallen down the multiple planner hole, or you’re trying to justify purchasing another.
Day 3 is…
My Strawberry Latte Hobonichi Weeks Planner… My Portable Catch-all!
So if you’re in the planner community, you know the Hobonichi Weeks planner has taken us all by storm. It’s tiny, portable, and people are making the cutest kits (me included)! I found mine on Amazon and it arrived from Japan to New York in about a week and a half from purchasing. Look how lovely! I love that it’s in my absolute favorite color and matches the whole PBS aesthetic!
Because this planner is so small, I use it to note just my priorities each day, track any medications I’m taking, and note down when my husband will be late. I’ll also leave a section where, each day, I’ll write a few sentences on my favorite thing that happened. I’m really liking this, because even though it’s not quite a necessity in my lineup, it’s a quick and easy way to jot down ideas. Plus, I’m traveling a LOT in the next 11 months, and this is going to be fantastic to bring along with me!
Have you picked up a Hobonichi Weeks yet? Don’t forget to check out my new section of kits for it! They’re affordable and fit perfectly into the planner for portability. I can’t wait to see this little guy filled up at the end of the year!
