2021 Hobonichi Haul (ほぼ日)

It’s that time of the year again where I share my Hobonichi haul + share my planner/journal set-up for next year! ☺️ It’s one of the few things I really look forward to every year.

*If you want to see my previous hauls, you can click here for 2020 and here for 2019! (Also, can I just say—I’m so happy to see my content improve over the years, hehe.)

I ordered my Hobonichi haul on September 1, 2020 (first day of the sale!) and got my package (via FedEx) on September 8, 2020—which is exactly a week later! Not bad. (If you ignore the extra fees, haha.)

This year’s box came in a lovely yellow color and a commemorative 20th anniversary graphic on top of the box. Happy 20th Anniversary, Hobonichi!

This year, I admit, I was a little underwhelmed with the cover choices. Last year, I had such a difficult time choosing what cover to get because I loved so many designs. This year, I had trouble choosing because there wasn’t a particular cover that I gravitated towards.

Rather than force myself to buy a cover from the 2021 line-up just for the sake of getting a cover from the latest release, I searched locally for covers and saw that Scribe was selling one of my dream covers for 40% off! After much thought (and a little encouragement from Abbey, haha!) I bought it!

Here’s what I got:

Hobonichi 2020 Haul (ほぼ日 2020)

The last Hobonichi update I’ve done was way back in 2018. After a “Hobonichi 2019 Haul” last year, I haven’t posted anything since then.

The truth is that after tons of spreads filled top to bottom in my 2018 Hobonichi, I got burnt out and felt tired to write or fill up my 2019 Hobonichi. It’s sad to see that my pages aren’t as inspiring or they aren’t as fun to do like my 2018 Hobonichi. While I do fill up pages and some spreads from time to time, I didn’t enjoy it as much.

Sad, but not discouraged, I decided that for 2020, I would be getting a Day-Free Hobonichi so that I won’t be restricted to the number of pages (or the lack thereof) I use for the year—this way, I’ll only record those moments in the year that are truly meaningful to me! Wish me luck! Now, on with the haul:

This year’s box is larger than last year’s and when I saw it, I got really excited!
