The size (LxW) is perfect because the notebook allows me to put it in my bag's sleeve pocket without really noticing it taking up too much room. Also, the size of the paper always seems to be on point on how much I need to write per entry. The thinness of the notebook also saves space in my bag and prevents it from being too bulky and noticeable as some of the other notebooks that I have used previously. Finally, I love the quality and texture of the cover and the paper. Something about them makes me feel like I am writing in one of those classic adventure notebooks when in reality I am just writing my to-do list for the day.
1) Limited Page Bleed Through / Heavier Stock - I use darker ball point pins and the ink does not bleed through to the reverse side
2) Easy Flexing - Does not require strain to write near the spine (middle) of the notebook / opens nicely so I can use the entire page from edge to edge
3) Quality Construction - Through daily monthly use, pages and spine do not separate.
4) Multiple Sizes - I like the fact I can now get a quality notebook in multiple size to cover different organization needs.
All around a great notebook, even at the elevated price point if you looking for a sturdy organizer that can withstand daily abuse and be your go to, this is it.
The packaging it came in was pretty wimpy, too. Just one of those flat bubble wrap packages. This would have been okay with a hard back notebook, but since I ordered the soft paper back, it arrived slightly bent.
I'd probably still order moleskines in the future but I'll definitely get a hardback.
When I went back to college, I searched for planners that had a monthly view, a weekly view, enough space for a prioritization and to-do list, as well as pages for extra things. The planners I found had different combinations of these things but I could never find one planner with everything I was looking for (even moleskine planners weren't exactly what I was looking for).
So, one night, I googled planners, figuring I could come across some random site that sold planners better suited to my needs. To my surprise, I came across an entire community of people who took regular moleskine (typically moleskine) ruled planners and turned them into customized planners just for them.
I immediately started writing down what I specifically wanted and needed in my planner. I knew there would be an adjustment period until I'd perfected it, but I was willing to try.
I'm on my third six-month long planner and it's been worth it. Looking back on the years in middle school, jr high, and high school that I spent bending my needs to fit the planner as opposed to having a planner that fit MY needs, seem crazy!
Plus, I've noticed that because of the expensiveness of moleskine notebooks and the time it takes me to do everything (usually about four hours to finish the whole thing), I use and care for them more! I do end up with unused pages in the back of the books but I use them to help me plan out next semesters classes and various things like that.
