A Paper Lover’s Guide to Selecting the Perfect Planner or Datebook : Part 1of3

11 Nov

Selecting the perfect planner–the right format, size, layout–can be a fraught experience.  Here to simplify that process is Laurie Huff, the guru behind In this 3-part series, she’ll walk us through how to choose the best planner for you.  

We know: online calendars abound! But an electronic device simply can’t replicate the tactile joy of holding a book, turning the pages, and putting pen to paper. There are also numerous advantages of using a paper planner. Studies have shown that the act of writing helps people remember what they have written even if they never look at it again. And, the archival properties of a book are superior to electronics. We can read books hundreds of years after they were printed. Have you tried recently to access data on a floppy disc? What about that website you used to read until it went all 404 on you? Books have a tangible permanence that electronics can’t replicate. european-paper-loves-pen-to-paper-datebook-selection

The purpose of a planner is to help keep you in control of your life. Everyone’s needs are different, and your planner can be anywhere from basic—simply scheduling appointments—to complex. Ideally your planner should be your life management tool. Tasks, goals and projects are much more likely to be completed if they are written in your planner where you will see them often. Students can use their planner to track assignments, papers, exams and homework so that everything gets completed on time. Parents with kids in school can write everyone’s schedule and recurring events into your planner so you always know who has to be where and when. Other functions of a planner include tracking everything from finances and expenses to health matters like exercise, diet, blood pressure and weight. Your planner can also be your creative outlet for journaling and art.

With all these planner uses, how can you possibly decide what planner will work best for you? Here’s where to start:

There are three main types of planner formats: daily, weekly or monthly. Each format provides different perspectives on your time. Below is some advice to help you decide if you would best benefit from the large overview of the monthly, schedule view of the weekly, or lots of details with the daily.

Let me walk you through the three main types of formats and ways to use each.


Daily:  Daily planners, diaries, or day-per-page planners allow you to focus on each day. The downside of these planners is it can be difficult to plan ahead with only two days visible at a time, so if you use one as your planner I highly recommend combining it with a monthly planner.

Daily planners are excellent for people who have lots of appointments each day, or who want to record details such as phone calls, expenses, tasks, or other information. Some of my favorite daily planners are the Quo Vadis Journal 21 and Daily pocket (which have built-in monthly planning calendars), and the Moleskine daily plannersShop all our daily planners here.


Weekly:  This is the most popular format of planners because it allows you to see your entire week at once and plan your schedule easily.  There are various weekly formats including week + notes, such as the Leuchtturm Weekly Plannerhorizontal like the Quo Vadis Hebdo, or vertical (days as columns) like the Moleskine Large Vertical Weekly Planner. I will compare these different formats later in a separate post.

Weekly formats are good for most planner situations because they allow for detailed daily planning while giving the overview of the week. Shop all our weekly planners here.


Monthly:  There are planners that have monthly-only formats. If you don’t have much to write each day and prefer an overview of your month, the monthly planner is perfect for you. Alternatively, you could use a separate monthly planner along with your weekly or daily planner to have the books open side by side to see the monthly overview alongside your weekly or daily activities. Some examples of this are the Moleskine Monthly Notebook and the Quo Vadis Visoplan #67Shop all our monthly planners here.

Monthly calendars are best for seeing overviews of things like bills due, travel, holidays, deadlines, and seeing patterns over a period of weeks.

So to summarize:

To record lots of details of your days, you’ll want a daily planner »

For most planning needs, weekly planner will probably work well for you »

For long-range planning or if you don’t have many appointments, use a monthly planner »


In my next post, I’ll help you determine what size planner you need!

The Well-Appointed Desk’s Ana Reinert Shares What’s on Her Wishlist

5 Nov


For the most part, stationery and office supplies are not super expensive
and perfect for gift-giving. Unfortunately, non-paper geeks have no idea
what do buy for the paper-and-pen geek.

Here are a few things I think would love to find under the tree this

1. I love high-quality fountain pen inks. Both J. Herbin and Noodler’s make
great inks and have lots of colors to choose from. I particularly like the
icy aqua blue Noodler’s Navajo Turquoise Ink ($12.50)»

2. The amusing Cavallini Oops Eraser ($3.50) would make a perfect stocking

3. I’ve been on the lookout for a great dry highlighters and the Moleskine
Highlighter Pencil Set ($16.50) with its matte black casing and cool
carpenter-style shape make this an appealing option.

4. I’m always looking for good-quality stationery and the G. Lalo Medium
Tablet & EP Set ($23) in mint green looks like the luxury option. Wrapped
with a red bow, it’s holiday-ready. And those lazy post-Christmas days are a
great time to catch up on all my correspondence.

5. So many wonderful things have been said about the Apica Premium A6 CD
Notebook ($14.70) but I’ve yet to buy a pad. I think the plain paper pad
with the black cover would be a great way to try it out.

6. Anything by Midori is a welcome gift. Their products are high quality and
have great classic looks. The Midori B7 Spiralbound Envelope Notebook
($8.35) would be a great catch-all for receipts, stamps or travel ephemera.

7. Finally, in preparation for 2014, I will definitely need a new calendar for
my desk. The Cavallini Around The World Desk Calendar ($12.95) is just the
right sort of retro cool for me to dream of my next vacation while sitting
in the office.

Maybe I need to fill my own stocking this year?

Video : Sonar – Raindrops of Rhodia Orange, Whitelines White, & Moleskine Black

10 Sep

Just wanted to share this interesting Sonar video, which is like a beautiful mix of raindrops and fireworks dancing around within the length of their sound waves. We also couldn’t help but notice that the color palette resembled our fave notebooks of Rhodia, Whitelines, and Moleskine. How serendipitous!
