The Moleskine Volant Daily Planners are are easy to use because of their thin profile and small size, but they lack an elastic strap and a ribbon place marker. This simple set of hacks will bring your Volant planner up to speed and add a pen holder, too. These solutions were shared with me by my good friend Alex, who will be a freshman in college this fall.
A Colorful Paper Clasp Will Keep Your Planner Closed and Add A Pen Holder
I was struck by the simplicity of this hack. Not only does a paper clasp do a great job of keeping the Volant planner closed, it can also be used to keep a pen with your planner. You can also use it to anchor your planner to larger books or notebooks. Paper clasps come in a variety of sizes and colors enabling you to to create the perfect combination of function and design.
Origami-Inspired Paper Folds Keep You On Track In Style
Organization doesn’t have to be boring to be effective. Simple paper folds for days that have passed create a beautiful place holder in your planner. By folding the corners into the middle of the planner, alternating between the top and bottom, a v-shaped indentation is formed. This leaves a perfect, thumb-sized place to open to the current day. If you have days or pages that have passed that you want to refer to quickly, no problem, just color the folds for easy recall.
