Hobonichi Weeks- 2017 Planner

Look what we got here. The Hobonichi Weeks 2017 Planner.

For the past year I've been debating on whether or not I should give this little planner a try. There have been so many planner lovers raving about theirs and saying how much they enjoy it, so I thought why not give it a shot!

I've used the Hobonichi Techo A6 and Cousin size before, so might as well give the give the Weeks a try too!

The size of this notebook measures at 3.75"x 7.4" offering 240 pages of that beautiful, light, thin, Tomoe River paper (which means it's pretty resistant to bleed-throughs and feathering, but it still gives slight show-throughs, especially when using heavier inks).

Writing on this paper is so nice and smooth, I tell ya.

The Hobonichi Weeks planner is also light enough to carry around everyday within the handbag, hardly taking up any room.

I'm really liking the simplicity of this planner, while still appreciating the structure of the monthly and weekly layout.

The faint grid design on the paper is helpful as well, especially if you're like me and enjoy jotting down bullet lists. It leaves a lot of room for flexibility and creativity.

Another favorite feature about this planner is this-
See how it lays flat? This is a must have feature for me when it comes to any good notebook/planner, and that's one thing I love about the Hobonichi planners. The binding is designed to have the notebooks lay flat.

You'll notice that the monthly and weekly layout start on Monday, which doesn't bother me much. I've actually grown to prefer having my weekend days together vs. spread apart (after using Japanese planners over the past few years).

Overall, I'm so glad I took the leap and purchased the Hobonichi Weeks Planner. Just by looking through the layout and pages, I can already tell that this going to be one planner I'll truly enjoy using. (and you may, too!) I even got some accessories (like this and these) to go with it. Just a few more days until January, so I'll be spending the next few days setting this baby up!

If you'd like more details of this planner, you can watch my video review here.

Check out the Hobonichi website to see more of the features and different cover designs. (Mine is the French Bread design.)

Until then, stay tuned for planner updates!
