Swag of the Week
I use the Hobonichi Techo 2015 planner as my day-to-day todo manager, and it’s a delight. It feels very high quality, and makes you want to go out a buy a nice pen to use specifically for this notebook. It’s stupid-expensive for a planner, but if you’re into this sort of thing, you’ll love it.
