Philofaxy reader Greg (whom we all know and love as gregorym) emailed me recently asking my planner advice.
For a long time he has gone back and forth between Filofax and Franklin Covey ring-bound planner systems. But he had the realization that he never opens the rings to move any pages around, so what was the point of a ring-bound system? He wanted to try switching to a bound-book planner and asked for my suggestions. As we all know, I am always more than happy to provide planner suggestions!!
One of his criteria for a bound planner was that it must have a leather cover, sturdy and substantial, that would look good year after year of daily use. I offered a few suggestions of planners that have leather cover options. I also mentioned that he could get a Moleskine planner and have a custom leather cover made for it. I am extremely happy with my custom leather cover by Renaissance Art, and directed Greg to their website to check out their wide selection of leathers, colors and styles of Moleskine covers. When he told me he was looking for an Indiana Jones style leather cover, I knew he would love the Rustic Leather covers (which is what he ordered, with customization, in the photo at the top of this post). It turned out great!
He also found a 2010 daily Moleskine planner still available online, for a great price, so he is able to start his new planner system immediately!
Greg, congratulations on your handsome new Ren Art cover, and good luck with your new daily Moleskine system! Keep us updated as it progresses!
