Not of everything, just of July and of this year's One Book July challenge.
What did I learn? I learned that I need the A5 size for journaling to help with my creativity and, weirdly, to help motivate me to work out regularly. I started the year with a book just for health and working out, thinking it would be uber motivating to have a place to gather up all the information. I had a roll going at the end of 2017 of yoga every day and I had added running and core work. But, for some reason, having the A5 size just inspires me to practice my asana every day.

I also learned that the PERFECT sidekick to my A5 journal is the Mega Weeks. It complements my Cousin in a few ways:
1. It has many back pages for collections and it is a place to gather notes and other information so that I can use the A5 just as a journal.
2. I have been using the Weeks since the beginning of the year, and it allows me to look back if needed on information from the beginning of the year since my A5 Cousin is only half a year. The whole year gets too bulky when the amount of wash tape is used in it that I like to use. Love a new book in July. New planners twice a year, so fun.

So, what should I do when ordering opens for the Hobonichi store in September? I should order a Mega Weeks and a Cousin Avec set for 2019.
What will I actually do? Probably, I'll buy every size.
SO, this is the life of a planner girl. I love all the books. I love all the possibility that comes from all the books. But, the truth is that I should just get one of each of these two, because it makes the most sense and gives me the planner JOY!
There are a lot of things I did not cover about how I actually use these books. If you are interested in more information or a deeper dive into the reflection that I do regularly or tracking techniques, leave me a note and I'll create a post about it. Thanks for stopping by!
