If you’ve read my previous rambles about planners and whatnot, you could probably tell what I’m going to talk about in this post just by looking at the title. I’ve been indecisive whether I should place an order for this year’s Hobonichi planner since I was trying to save some money for something else. I thought I shouldn’t give in, but my planner junkie instincts kicked in and finally made me purchase one three days ago. (Forgive me, me).
I decided to get the A6 sized planner this year since the A5 size was too big and a bit heavy for me. I didn’t purchase any of the 2017 covers that I’ve mentioned before since I’m a bit tight on money. But instead of that, I decided to reuse my old A6 cover (which had no actual planner inside it) that I purchased last year.
I made an additional purchase for this cover since I wanted to keep my existing Weeks planner safe. I really liked the design of it and it wasn’t that expensive, so why not! The cover has two multipurpose slots for cards, pen loop and some sort of bookmark tab. All in all, it’s a pretty handy cover!
For those who don’t know, every purchase of Hobonichi planner through their online webshop will include a freebie of Uni Jetstream pen and a different extra each year. Last year’s pen was yellow colored and the extra freebie was a tissue holder which was very nice to have! 2017’s freebie is a toast-shaped plate … which I have no idea what to use for.
Overall, I was really satisfied by this purchase. Their shipping was lightning fast! It only took three days for them to process the order and get the items to my place. Price wise, it’s quite on the high end, however it won’t betray your expectations for their quality are so far the best that I know. If you want to know more about this planner, do check some Youtube videos! They have all the explanations and previews of the planners as well as their covers.
