I thought that before 2010 runs out and while getting new planners is fresh in everyone’s mind I should give a solid look at my Rhodia 6×9 Weekly Notebook.
Here is the description from quovadisplanners.com
Rhodia Weekly Notebook 6×9 – January-December
Desk Soft Cover Weekly Planner
Inner pockets for notes, cards
Week on left, Rhodia’s famous grid for notes on right
Crisp two color print – grey and orange
7am to 8pm schedule
90 g alkaline/neutral paper
Attached address book
Extra white, super smooth paper
12 months weekly, January to December
Sewn binding, lays flat when open
Tear-off corner opens to week in progress
I really like this planner. It is big enough to sit on my desk and be quite legible but still portable enough to get stuff in my bag and carried around. The week on the left and notes on the right are the perfect configuration for me to tack appointments and still keep to do lists and random notes on the right.
The quality of the planner is top notch. The paper is crisp, smooth and heavy enough to prevent bleedthrough/showthrough. The binding is solid and lays flat. The cover is flexible but looks like it will stand up to a years worth of manipulating and travel.
One issue I do have is that, despite the description from the website, my planner does not have the inner pockets. I like the pockets as I can keep receipts, notes etc that relate to my schedule in the planner but this is not a deal breaker.
Overall I am very happy with this planner and as the new year approaches and your thoughts turn to scheduling 2011 I would highly recommned looking at the Rhodia 6×9 weekly Planner.
