It is hard to believe that August is already here, let alone the next year. I am a bit late to the scene but as usual, Hobonichi has announced previews and releasing schedule for 2019 planners. If you have purchased from Hobonichi directly, you may recall that on the first day of release (September 1) the “traffic” is as bad as grand opening of a highly anticipated store. One important change this year is that Hobonichi will release planners for purchase over three days, in effort to ameliorate the overall shopping experience and to alleviate the traffic. Similar to past year, Hobonichi will unveil the 2019 line-up, as well as changes made in next year’s planner in the month of August. For more details, visit the Hobonichi page. For those of us who cannot attend the actual preview of the line-up in Tokyo or Kyoto, Hobonichi will also host a live 2-hour Q&A session on August 18 on Facebook to answer any questions you may have.
I am eager to see the changes implemented in 2019 based on users’ feedbacks. My current plan is to purchase a Techo Week Mega for task tracking and planning. Instead of purchasing a separate planner as a journal, I will opt for a Midori 10th Anniversary notebook. The generous size will accommodate clippings that I regularly gather from day-to-day life and the paper will also take a wide range of media.
Hopefully I will get around to talk about my planner set up this year. Life often occurs faster than what we can realistically keep up.
