Do you have the kind of life that involves both scheduling appointments and taking notes? You could carry around two books to accomplish this purpose, one planner and one notebook. Or, you could simplify your life and take along just one planner that has room for both planning and note taking!
If you prefer using daily planners with room for notes on each day of the week, you may like the Quo Vadis Notor with a small 8am – 7pm plan at the top of each page and a larger area underneath for notes. Exacompta’s Forum journal in the undated 365 format is quite similar with the biggest difference being that it is undated so that you can start your planning on any day of any year.
Another daily desk diary that could possibly accommodate notes is Exacompta Journal 21. The planning schedule runs down almost the entire length of the left side of each page, but if your appointment notes are brief then you’ve got plenty of room for notes on the right side of each page. Interestingly, this planner has 72g paper in a soft green color.
If you’d like to have a weekly planner with a space for notes each week, Exacompta Space 17 and the new 4×6 Rhodia WebPlanner are two pocket-size planners with this format. Both of these diaries have Monday through Saturday planning on the left page and Sunday’s plan on the bottom of the right page with a larger space above for notes. The Rhodia WebPlanner has white graph paper for notes, while Space 17 has ivory lined paper for notes.
Larger size weekly desk diaries with space for weekly notes include the 6×9 Rhodia WebPlanner and Exacompta Space 24. Rhodia’s WebPlanner has Monday through Sunday plans on the left and almost a full page of graph paper for notes on the right. There are 3 small months on the bottom of the right page. Space 24 has Monday through Friday plans on the left page, Saturday and Sunday plans on the bottom of the right page and lined paper above for notes. The largest Quo Vadis planner with room for notes on the right page is Note 27 at 8 1/4” x 10 1/2”.
The Quo Vadis Monthly 4 Calendar includes 16 ruled pages in the back for taking notes. If you’re not going to use the address book pages for your contacts these 5 narrow ruled pages could also be used for note taking. Since the 90g paper in this planner is made by Clairefontaine it is also fantastic for writers that use fountain pens.
Moleskine makes both a Weekly Planner Plus Notes and a Monthly Planner Plus Notes.
