I love pocket planners, but most don’t include a usable monthly calender along with the current week. This has always frustrated me, so I created a set of small Monthly Calendars that are available as a free download at www.journalingarts.com.

The Monthly Calendars measure 4¾” x 3¼” and were designed to fit into Moleskine, Ciak, Cartesio, and Rhodia planners and will also fit into the back envelope for storage. Use one as a bookmark and you’ll always have your month to view where you need it.

Each season is designated by a color and design. The free downloads are in color, but will print beautifully in black & white on your laser printer. A download of matching photos is also available that you can use on the back of your calendars or alone for a colorful pop.

The free download of lined Notecards was designed to fit on the back of the calendars, but can be used alone for adding Notecards to your planning. You can print these out on the backside of your calendars by printing on both sides of your paper. The Notecards, Photos and Calendars were designed to line up properly when printed on both sides.

Free Notecards download can be used alone or with the Monthly Calendars for additional organization.

Leuchtturm released three planners for the 2012 planning year. In addition to pen-friendly paper and adhesive labels we are accustomed to with Leuchtturm notebooks, the planners feature a few extras that you won’t find in other planners. One of the most unique features is the fold-out project planner in the front of each planner, perfect for scheduling long-term projects.

Which planner do you prefer, a paper calender or an electronic calender?

A friend of mine recently alerted me to an article in the New York Times about our society’s continued move towards an electronic lifestyle that outlined some of the pros and cons of paper and electronic calenders. Where do you stand on this issue? Do you prefer a paper planner, an electric planner or a combination of both?

What’s small, round and yellow with an insatiable appetite? Pac-Man, of course, and he will be your constant companion in your new 2012 Pac-Man Moleskine Planner. You can choose from large and small weekly and daily planners adorned in traditional Pac-Man colors black and yellow. The weekly planners are primarily yellow, while the daily planners are primarily black.

Pac-Man limited edition planners include a band of colorful Pac-Man characters, and address book and a post card.

Both planners feature a debossed Pac-Man game board  accented by Pac-Man in bright yellow on black, or silver foil on yellow. Planning pages in both daily and weekly formats are identical in layout to the classic Moleskine Planners, but the interior features colorful band of Pac-Man characters on the inside of the covers, both front and back. A removable address book continues this theme that wraps around front and back covers.

Pac-Man Daily planners have a black cover and one-page-per-day planning format.

Daily Planners
Both large and small daily planning formats feature one-day-per-page planning. Black covers are enhanced by a bright yellow Pac-Man character on the front and  “High Score” on the back cover. A debossed game board on the front cover adds subtle texture. A classic, black ribbon bookmark helps you find your place.

Weekly Planners
Both large and small weekly planning formats feature one-week per-two-page-spread planning, with a week-to-view on the left and a ruled page for notes on the right. Bright yellow covers are enhanced by a silver foiled Pac-Man character and an debossed game board cover. A bright yellow ribbon bookmark keeps you organized.

Weekly Pac-Man planners feature a week-on-the-left, ruled-page-on-the-right planning format.

All students, undergraduate and graduate , need a calendar. Why not use one geared towards your college schedule?

The Ciak Academic Daily Planner is dated starting in August, just when school starts back up. This allows you to use the same calendar throughout the school year rather than use one during the Fall semester and another during the Spring semester.

The Ciak Academic Planner has a few extras that other planners are missing such as an Examination Schedule, List of Courses Chart, Consulting Hours page and an envelope style pocket in the back for storing useful notes, photos or other flat items.

In the planning section, each page for Monday through Friday features a daily planning page with 23 lines for organizing your life, while Saturday and Sunday share a page.

Two new Cahier planners have been introduced to the Moleskine line for 2012. Both planners feature the cardboard covers and thin profile we’ve come to expect on the Moleskine Cahier notebooks, but both planners offer a new planning format.

Moleskine's new Cahier Planners feature 1-week-per-page planning and four new earth-tone colors including mais, ginger, wheat and terracotta.

Moleskine Cahier Weekly Diary/Planner
One Week Per Page, 2 Weeks Per 2-Page Spread
Retails for around $7.00

Each Cahier Weekly planner features 1 week per page or 2 weeks per spread. This weekly planning format is in both the Cahier Weekly and the 3-Piece Cahier planners.

Available in 4 earth tone colors, mais, terracotta, wheat and ginger, Moleskine’s Weekly Diary/Planner features a planning format with one week per page or two-weeks-per 2-page spread. This is great for those of you who have minimal planning needs but would like to see a half of a month’s worth of planning in one 2-page spread. Slim Cahier styling and fewer pages result in planners that are ultra thin, measuring just 3/16″ thick. In addition to the planning pages, the Cahier Weekly planner includes 28 pages in the front of the planner with:

  • a personal data page
  • box style monthly calenders
  • 2012 and 2013 annual planning calenders
  • international holidays chart
  • travel planning and memos chart
  • time zone map
  • dialing codes
  • measures and conversions
  • international sizes

The rear of the planner has 11 ruled pages for notes or sketching.

Moleskine's new Three-Piece Cahier Planner.

Moleskine Cahier Three-Piece Diary Planner
Both Weekly and Daily Planners and a Memo Folder
Retails for around $15

For those of you who need more versatility in scheduling, check out Moleskine’s Three-Piece Daily/Planner. This planner set has both weekly and daily planners and a memo folder with an elastic strap to keep it all organized. Even though it contains three pieces, the entire set is surprisingly thin, measuring just 3/8″ thick, which is comparable to Moleskine’s pocket-sized, soft cover planner.

This planning set includes 3 pieces, a weekly planner, daily planner and a memo folder with an elastic strap.

Unlike the rest of Moleskine’s planning line, these planners are stripped down to the bare essentials so only the planning pages and a few ruled pages are included. There are no monthly calenders or travel charts. This results in a surprisingly thin profile even when all three pieces are together.

The 64-page weekly planner has the same planning format as the Cahier Weekly Planner, 2 weeks per-2-page spread and includes 9 ruled pages for notes in the back of the planner.

The daily planner has undated 1-page-per-day planning, enabling you to fill out the day and month you desire. Because there are only 64 pages, you won’t be able to use daily planning pages for the entire year, but for those days where you have a lot of scheduling or if you have a class schedule that repeats. Perforated pages allow you to remove the daily planning pages and insert them into the weekly planner for reference.

All three pieces store compactly and are held together with the elastic strap on the memo folder.
