I was planning to go into 2021 with one planner I knew, and one new planner. Then I found out about a planner via The Stationery Cafe podcast, and I had to grab one just to try it out.
Introducing the Take a Note planner. This planner is going into its 6th year. So it’s pretty new, and I couldn’t find too many places to buy it (and ship to US). I pre-ordered mine via A Blank Note, and the planner shipped out in November. I’m glad I pre-ordered this since it seems to be selling out in what few places I can find it at.
The English version of this planer comes in an A5 size.
The planner lays flat, at least for the most part. Some pages do curl upwards from the spine, but I think you could fix this with some pressing down of the page.
Monthly runs from December of the previous year to March of the next year. (December 2020 – March 2022)
The weekly is a hybrid vertical weekly layout meets daily. There are two days split vertically down on each page, with the exception of Monday. For Monday, on the left is a horizontal section listing the days of the week to write quick notes, and Monday itself takes up the right side of the page.
The weekly runs from the first week of January 2021 through the last week of December 2021.
Like the Jibun Techo, the months are grouped together followed by the weekly/daily hybrid pages grouped together.
