Countdown to 2015 – a reflection on previous years

It is that time of year again – I’ve got to start agonising over what choice to make for my 2015 diary. Even though I know already I will have several. (And I also know that I will receive at least 2 diaries and 3 calendars as Christmas gifts).

Some friends might say it is way too early to be considering such an item but it pays to be prepared. Usually I have a free writing journal and then a small pocket diary to scribble down appointments and a bigger diary for to-dos.

In this series I am thinking about the simple all day – every day diary.

In 2004 – 2006 I used small blue pocket (page a day) diaries priced at 70p from Bargain Books. They were great and simple, perfect for when I was a student, but obviously looking for something a little bit more grown up now.

In 2007 – 2008 I had the Quo Vadis Textagenda diary which I loved (again another student planner), but then after I purchased this one I never saw one of these in the shops again.

2008 – 2009 I had a black simple diary purchased at Wilkinson’s until I scrapped it in favour of a moleskine diary as my main “cart it around everywhere” diary.

In 2010-2013 I used various moleskine diaries including – colour a month and a number of different weekly layouts.

In 2014 I finally started using a Pocket Filofax for the first time ever which I have found to work quite well as an all day – every day diary as if I want to get rid of some of the extra notebooks in my bag on a particular day I always have extra pages in my pocket as a backup.

and so the search begins for a diary for 2015…
