Well, since I blew off money on my early Christmas present, I might as well keep blogging about it until I feel satisfied that’s it’s been thoroughly blogged, LOL. For the past few days, the bottom left corner of my desk seems to have transformed into a “Planning Station.” It’s amazing how, with the right motivation, I can be so resourceful after going on a shopping binge in an effort to soften the blow to my expenses. I was pleasantly surprised to find stationary I forgot I had. Anyway, here are some photos of the setup so far. I’m really loving the grid on these Hobonichi Techos. I have a shoebox full of washi tape that sadly didn’t make it to my station, but it’s right under my desk on the same side. 😆
Inside the planner (to see the grid and get an idea of the size)
I’ve barely started writing inside, but so far I can see myself writing in this everyday—granted I don’t have any pain in my hands. The grids are definitely useful and I especially love the weekly spread because each day has its own block and on the right side is free space. It’s super portable and doesn’t make me feel pressured to fill up so much space.
This morning I was able to submit my first ever order to Hobonichi’s online store. I’m so excited. I ordered a few things, mainly an acrylic cover thing for my A6, underlays, and some other stationary doodads. Their site says delivery takes 1–3 business days. Their shopping site is surprisingly English-friendly and the majority of their products can be shipped overseas. No wonder they run out of stock so quickly because not only are Japanese people buying this stuff, but so are so many other people around the world (mainly US, Canada, and Australia I think).
