I don’t go on a lot of shopping sprees but occasionally I do make the rounds at the local Stockholm design stores and design departments.
On a recent one (recent for me that is, this was back in early November) I went to shop for a 2013 diary but as things happen I also got a few more things.
I like my diaries to be simple and I’ve stuck to the same pocket diary for the past ten years but after I changed positions at work with new tasks and more meetings I needed a bigger one. This year I’m trying one from Ordning & Reda and got a wall calendar for home from there too.
Here’s the pocket one. Or rather it doesn’t really fit in my pocket anymore so it’s more of a purse (or in my case tote) one. I think it’s meant to go in a binder so it has a really simple cardboard cover which I know won’t last a year’s worth of schlepping around. I chose it anyway because it’s much slimmer than the hard cover ones and thus much lighter. Remember I don’t drive around with my tote bag, I carry it on public transportation and every ounce counts!
So what I did to protect it was to stick some adhesive white shiny adhesive on it.
So simple. Just cover and trim the edges.
Because we plan a lot of meetings and tasks way ahead I’ve already used it for quite a while and I really like its bigger size and its easy wipe (and now glossy, pretty, shiny) cover.
And with the new year started my wall calendar is obviously also up and running. I like how this one has three columns per day so Wille and I each have one and then I use the first one to plan blog posts (secret!).
