I buy a new planner every year, and was looking for something with a lot of space for writing assignments, appointments, and anything else important each day. This planner ended up being the best choice for me.
I'd heard a lot of good things about Moleskine, and one of my friends has used their planners before, so all I really had to do was narrow it down to the design. I didn't want something that was just a solid color, and I was drawn to the Pac-Man planner. I dislike yellow, so I went for the black. It's very subtle and looks age-appropriate, despite the Pac-Man design on the front.
I like the fact that it's a daily planner. Before, I was using weekly planners or smaller daily planners, and there simply wasn't enough space for everything I wanted to remember to do that day. This planner is no bigger than a paperback book, and as I've said before, there's more than enough space for what I need. There's also an address book in the back, which I'd originally thought I wouldn't even use but have recently started writing in. The cover is hard and it looks and feels like it's bound well, so I'm sure it's durable and will last for a long time. I carry it almost everywhere with me.
