What personal diary should l get?(5 Posts)
I am still a fan of having a paper diary for my personal life. This year l had something similar to www.amazon.co.uk/Cavallini-2014-Weekly-Planner-World/dp/1619922657/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=cavallini+diary&sprefix=cavallini+&srs=1772829031&tag=mumsnetforu03-21&qid=1601469821&sr=8-6
but l fancy something different for next year. It needs to not be too big as l typically carry it round in my handbag. Any suggestions?
What did you like about that diary, OP? Would help if we know, then can suggest alternatives.
I'm also a fan of a paper diary and don't use my phone or laptop for that sort of thing. We have a paper wall calendar too!
I've had Paperblank diaries for many years now. I like them because they come in a wide range of sizes and formats, so you can choose week to view (horizontal or vertical options), day to view, slim, wide, etc. They have hard covers and an elastic closure which is ESSENTIAL as it gives me somewhere to store old receipts, lists, cards etc and stops it all coming open in your bag. Some of them have magnetic closure which is smart but doesn't allow stuffing the diary full of crap.
The designs are gorgeous - the ones I love best are designed to look like really old, ornate books with decorative leatherwork, gilding etc. I get mine on Amazon.
Watching with interest!
I've got my eye on something like this
I love the little habit tracker, feels very bullet journal without the effort of drawing things up all the time.
I have tried and failed at bullet journaling many a time because I get upset if it doesn't look perfect!
@GlomOfNit duh l should have provided more detail -sorry work is running me ragged today. Funnily enough l have similar wants to you -elastic to keep stuff (crap!) inside. I’m easy about horizontal / vertical but sufficient space in a week to a page is needed. Design wise l want something a bit different I.e. no boring navy plan ones
@dirtyfries yes! This is the vibe l am thinking. Tear out lists sound especially helpful
