I have been in my Van Der Spek Red Janet Leather Codex cover for my Hobonichi cousin for almost a year now. And using Hobonichi Cousin for over a year.
Right now though, my Cousin is half finished but I am still carrying the unnecessary pages around – the primary disadvantage of a bound book. It is heavy and big and so I changed to a Filofax for the summer (and maybe beyond). Partly because I need to carry around less over summer, but mostly because I am travelling to South Africa for more than three weeks in three weeks’ time, and I need something compact and light. I need to carry my calendar for scheduling and notepaper but not much else.
I chose this binder because it is well laid out, floppy, with compact rings (no overstuffing possible). It is great for a travel planner and wallet. It is soft and flexible (no stiffening) and slips very easily into a jacket pocket or the inside pocket of a handbag.

I will probably be experimenting a little as regards what binder I use, but staying with personal size.
