I have moved from a Hobonichi Techo in 2020 to a Hobonichi Cousin for 2021, and I am not sure what to do with all the extra space. The Techo felt cramped at first, but I grew accustomed to it; I’m sure the same will happen with the new one soon enough.

  1. @petebrown @jack I tried using an A5 size bullet journal in 2019 and moved to the Techo for 2020. I liked the smaller format. I don’t really need a planner, but it works great as a phenology notebook and sleep journal. I also use it for recording random observations to be fleshed out in my daily journal. Keeping it for 2021.

  2. @ddykstal @jack What’s funny is that, when I ordered both in mid-2020, the Cousin is what I thought I wanted and I only got the Techo for 2020 because that’s all that was left at that point. We’ll see how it goes, but I feel like the Cousin’s monthly, weekly, and daily sections are a bit much.

  3. @petebrown @ddykstal I do cheat a bit because I also use an A5 Leuchtturm notebook as a sort-of bullet journal. The Techo only gets used for planning and other date-based notes, while the Leuchtturm is for longer notes and todos. I’ve never been capable of getting to One True Notebook.

  4. @jack The One True Notebook is an illusion. I use a Techo and and A5 MD notebook for a daily long form journal, a couple of sketchbooks which I use mostly for doodling. Don’t get me started on the apps…
