Every year I get excited for this, but certain 2023 announcements have taken it to another level for me this year, particularly the release of the English Cousin!
Prelude – Planner Peace from Sarah K – Hobonichi!
Sarah K is a busy attorney and loves using Hobonichi for the convenience of having daily / weekly / monthly pages in one portable book! Here are the pix she sent in — LOVE THESE!
1- My personal history with the brand. I’ve been on-again, off-again since 2014 — and currently back in my 2022 Cousin! Yes, I guess I’ve come full circle this year. Yes, there has been a LOT of planner hopping for me this year. There are some reasons for this which perhaps I’ll address tomorrow.
2- Current lineup & changes. The biggest change – as I mentioned – is the English language version of the Cousin and Weeks this year. I am thrilled and can’t wait to see it in person.
3- Shopping at the site. I promise, it’s not that intimidating! Sales start Sept 1st 11 am Japan time, which is 10 pm August 31. The site is here – right now you can browse but will have to wait until 2023 to “add to cart”. Prices are in yen (as of this moment, 1 yen = $0.0072 USD which is lower than it has been in years to my memory) but it is otherwise in English!
4- My purchasing plans. Well, I’m kind of undecided. I was thinking Velluto but am now ogling the Glitter Leather on a daily basis. This is quite expensive but I think perhaps fancy planner covers are my jewelry/designer handbag equivalent!
5- Changes to the paper. The paper will stay THE SAME for 2023, but next year will change to the new “Sanzen Tomoe River Paper”. The cool part is that each planner shipped will come with a sample page so we can experience next year’s paper now! I will do a full on pen test and share.
MORE next week! I had promised a guest episode but sadly that guest fell through (hopefully she will still come on eventually!) and I was inspired by today’s Deep Questions ep (#211) to attempt to record a succinct overview of my own big picture organizational system.
