I finally bought a scale to weigh my planners! This is going to revolutionize my life.
If you haven't already seen it, I updated My Epic Search For The Perfect Notebook post with the weights of all the notebooks, and added my weight threshold (376g) as part of my criteria.
After some experimentation, I discovered that my threshold of what I'm
willing to carry everywhere, planner + notebook totals 700g. My weekly Plannerisms planner weighs 324g, which means I'll want a notebook that weighs 376g or less. Now this I
can work with! Weighing my notebooks before use will help me narrow my
Interestingly, my overall weight threshold has gone up. It used to be that I would balk at carrying an A5 size day per page diary with me everywhere. My Time Traveler day per page diary weighs in at 503g, and now carrying that amount of weight doesn't bother me.
But carrying it, and my Plannerisms planner together puts me over the edge. At 827g it just feels like I'm hauling around luggage. This is why I have decided to switch to a nondated, lighter notebook to use for daily records and journaling in 2014.
Incidentally, I weighed my A5 Filofax in its current state, with fewer pages on the rings than if I had a full year of monthly, weekly and daily pages like I have in my Plannerisms planner and day per page diary. The A5 Filofax weighed in at a hefty 1039g. No wonder I can't stand to carry it anywhere! My Plannerisms planner and daily diary book together total 827g, much lighter for the same page size. So to answer everyone's question, that's why I don't use an A5 Filofax.
So from now on, weights will be included in all my reviews!
Do you know what your weight threshold is of what you are willing to carry everywhere?
