Useful and beautiful planner with the best paper to use with fountain pen.
I am transitioning from a Hobonichi Techo Cousin. I like the separate notebooks-I prefer to have my daily more personal journaling apart from the weekly and monthly planning pages. I also like that the weeks follow the months. I wish the Tomoe River paper wasn't so yellow, but I can deal with that. I wish the days of the week each had their own full row and that Saturday and Sunday weren't stacked, but I can deal with that also. Overall, I think it is a good planner system and hope to maximize it's features.
I've purchased multiple planners and notebooks from Wonderland 222. I love them and have given some as gifts as well. They are great quality. The paper is smooth and thin enough that it's reasonable to carry the notebook or planner around. I particularly like the layout, and that the gridlines are faint enough that I can disregard them if desired.
Excellent Planner!! I love all of the features that allow me to plan AND track my productivity.
I love the layout of the planner. I can choose if I want to use the weekly, or if I need more room, it is easy to switch over to a daily page. There are plenty of extra pages to be used however you want. Great quality paper that feels good to write on and is light weight.
This is the third year in a row that I’ve used this planner. It’s really well made, feels good to use and holds up over the course of the year. There are plenty of blank pages in the back of the planner and there are some features in the front of the planner that I don’t use so those end up being used as blank pages too. My favorite features are probably the numbered pages and the index so I can—and do—actually revisit my notes. I also like the aesthetic of the grid-lined pages and the clean design overall. It’s a good planner if you want to dabble in bullet journaling as it seems to be loosely set up for that.
Loving this planner! Was kind of worried I wouldnt like the paper since im used to the thick erin condren paper, but let me tell you, I am in love! Holds up so well, has so much space which I was also concerned about. I Love the weekly layout, the monthly, extra notes pages, the yearly/monthly re/overview and trackers, everything about this planner is perfectly designed, I wouldnt reorder the pages or take out anything. Simple and effective and not overwhelming with decorations or anything. Will buy again next year! Would love to see it come out in a french vanilla type color!
Bought the A5 again for my work planner, love the weekly layouts in particular. Glad that the text this year leans gray (rather than tan). Very clean and simple format, provides just enough structure without being restricting.
I am in love with my planner! The paper quality is great, it's adorable, and it's the perfect amount of space for me to use it as my calendar, to-do lists, and journaling. It's perfect and I can see myself coming back for a new one and more every year.
This is by far my favorite planner! I think I finally found planner peace❤️
Using it for the past 3 years. After trying out several other well known planners, this is close to a perfect planner I was looking for. The format, paper quality is just awesome. Only a minor gripe, wish it came in colored scheme instead of grey format. Hope they incorporate it in the next version
I'm super-stoked for 2023, and this planner is part of why! It arrived nicely packaged in a timely manner. I'd never used Tomoe River paper, but it plays as nicely with my fountain pens as i'd heard. I really enjoy the layout and the amount of space for notes.
What I do: Long, mid, near term planning on several concurrent lines of effort. Personal and staff task tracking. What I use: Frixion .5mm and 7mm black and blue; Frixion yellow, blue, green highlighters; and metal page darts. Cover. Kokuyo Systemic A5 (other book is a Kokuyo soft D-ring grid notebook), with A5 sleeves. Journal on the right, notebook on the left allows for flat writing. Paper. Great with Frixion .5mm pens. Ink dries fast and the grid size allows for easy note taking with the .5. Smudges quickly with .7mm. Both inks and highlighters erase easily completely, multiple times. If your day and week change a lot, the paper is tough enough for you (just be careful erasing at the edges). Yearly Vertical (2p). Use this for major work events that don’t need notes. These usually reoccur and I just need to know the day. Use the grid below to mark out “seasons” using bars and arrows across multiple months. Great for all my overlapping seasons at a glance. Quarterly Calendars. Personal use or major events that need notes like location, others I’m taking with me, etc. Good for travel info, too. Habit Trackers. Finances, exercise, daily tasks. Mainly it’s my morning checklist to start my day. Enough room on the left to write a longer description and title. Weekly. Top is major themes and big rocks to scan the week and helps with searching. (try not to duplicate elsewhere). Days are wide enough to mark two or three events across or overlapping. Helps to consolidate my and my boss’s major meetings, while leaving room between to schedule tasks. Use the bottom for suspense tracking and things I should get done but haven’t scheduled for the day, yet. Daily. This one is new for me. I’ve always just used them for scratch or I’d cut and paste (literally) smartbook stuff like maps, process charts, etc. for reference. Now. I have a separate book for that. I’ve started using the dailies to take meeting notes. Use the left to mark the meeting (4-5 grids) and then the right for the notes. Learned alternating blue and black keeps the meeting notes separate, and staggering left gutter helps, too. Didn’t think I’d like having reoccurring meeting notes spread throughout, but it’s really the same as having them spread out in a notebook. At least this way I can search the week I had a meeting and then immediately flip to the day in the back for the notes. Still use Outlook and Teams to manage schedules and alerts. But it’s been easy to keep the important stuff in the journal and I’ve got everything I need for when I’m away from my laptop or phone. And all my notes are right there. This just might be the right one for me, or as close as I’ll get to it. The line weight is perfect and this size is just right. Used a Techo Cousin last year and it felt a bit too rigid, too technical. This feels right so far. Hope this helps!
Beautiful color and feel. Always love the paper!
I LOVE this planner. In theory, it's a 2023 planner but in reality it's also a 2022 planner since it starts the weeks pages on November 28, 2022. The trackers and the monthlies also start with December! So I couldn't help but start using it and decorating for the holiday. The trackers are wonderful with plenty of space to track and also add some charting at the bottom. Also really like the quarterly pages with mini calendars. I find that having the weeklies right after each month is more helpful than having all the months together then all the weeks together. Maybe I've found planner peace? :). Oh, and almost forgot to mention the numbered pages in the back. I love that they are numbered and easy to index so they can be used bullet journal style or as daily's.
I think this is a solid planner. I ordered it to use in 2023, but I had some issues with the design and ended up going back to my past planner company. I think the trackers and different organizational pages are truly brilliant. However, I had issues with the extremely pale printing on the monthly page - it got overwhelmed by the ink I use to write in my dates (Lamy Benitoite - not that dark). Visually, the lines and dates did not hold their own, which bothered me more than I thought it would. It ended up looking like a bunch of words randomly scattered around the page, and I had to copy over the dates and lines to make them darker. Doing this exposed issues with the new Sanzen paper, because I got some pinpricks of bleed through on the other side of the page. That is not Wonderland222's fault though - it's something that all Tomoe River planners will have to contend with. If the paleness of the ink is an issue for me, I imagine it would be a major issue for anyone with visual difficulties. I am also not a huge fan of the gray shading on the boxes. I think it would be much more aesthetically pleasing (and versatile) if they were able to design without shading. Of course, I have this issue with Hobonichi as well - the shading seems to detract from the beauty of clean paper. This is less of a functional issue and more of a personal aesthetic one. Again, I think the elements of this planner are excellent, but visual design needs to be improved.
Just what I expected
The lavender is such a lovely color! I plan on using it as my work planner as the layout makes it a perfect work planner. I have many upcoming projects in 2023 this looks perfect for breaking down the goals and tracking them. I can't wait to use it! Thanks for making such a functional product.
Love the thin paper that keeps this planner small while I can still pack in a lot of content. This is my second year with this planner and I love it!
I'm so disappointed that you've taken out the ribbon markers that used to be included. My 2022 book has two ribbon markers which I use every single day (they could have been a bit longer, but at least they were there). My 2023 planner has no ribbon markers at all. I didn't even check when I bought it because I erroneously assumed that a change in the book would be highlighted. So this is frustrating.
I love my new planner. Customer service was excellent. I highly recommed!!!
I have started using this planner in this year for my work. I found that this is the best journal to organize business goals, progress, monthly/ weekly plan and daily tasks. I highly rely on this, and It will be an indispensable item for me in 2023.
Beautiful products! This will be my third Wonderland planner and I couldn't be happier with the quality. They are packaged beautifully and arrived safely to me in Canada with no bumps or bruises .
Love the color. The planner works well for my style
I am a first time buyer. I love the tome river paper. The A5 planner is beautiful and the mint color is gorgeous. I love that the planner offers a little of everything, weekly,monthly, habit trackers and blank pages. It's what I've been looking for in one book. I can't wait to start using it in December.
I purchased the Wonderland 222 as an organizer for my writing. I love the quarterly sections and the the routine trackers that are included. I have a feeling that I will be getting very good use out of this planner.
This is my second year using the planner for work. As a hybrid bullet journaler the format allows for flexible use of the pages without the need to draw time-consuming layouts every month and week. I love the extra blank pages in the back of the 2023 and lighter shading as compared to 2022.
This is my second year buying Wonderland222 for my 2023 planner. Planner came professionally packed and delivered to me however I did come across a minor issue and that the cover did have a small crease on the front which didn’t affect the pages what so ever. Being the picky person I am, wanted an exchange. Seller was very understanding and issue was fixed ASAP. Thank you again Wonderland222. Can’t wait to dive into my new planner for 2023. CHEERS!!
The planner is so compact and well organized! They have thought of everything! There is room for literally anything you can imagine, and the aesthetics are beautiful. If you enjoy bullet journaling, but want some built-in structure, this is the planner for you!
This is my third years using the Wonderland222 Weekly Planner and each year I find a better way to use t. I love it and recommend it to anyone who wants to listed. It contains everything one needs to organize from small tasks to big projects. However, this year's cover is disappointing. I haven't started to use mine yet and it's already bent. Please go back to the previous year's which was so much nicer.
A planner that i have actually stuck with for three years. It has everything I need and is not bulky. The covers are always lovely and the paper is great. I love that is structured but also easy enough to modify slightly when needed.
I have the B6 size now and fell in love with it. The A5 is a bigger version of it and can’t wait till December until I can start using it. Nice feel, beautiful quality.
This year the cover of the book has a horizontal dent. Also, when I put it on my desk, the cover won't stay flat, it just flaps as if it is pulled back from the binding. I've also noticed the paper is thinner than the previous years. It is very subtle but I can feel it and the book is thinner than this year's book. I use A5 dated.
Satisfied with the look and feel of this product.
Miss the ribbon bookmarks from last year, but otherwise it's perfect. Love the size, the layout of the days of the week, and the texture of the whole thing, inside and out!
Love the color. Like that the pages have spot for date, so you can start anytime and/or skip days.
I absolutely love everything about my A5 planner. The paper is amazing and the binding is sturdy, holds lots of stickers and washi tape. This is my second year using a Wonderland222 planner. I have found Planner peace.
Love it more than I anticipated. The color is stunning. The overall purchasing experience was excellent as well. I'll definitely be ordering some notebooks as well.
Last year was my first A5 222. I didn’t hesitate to preorder this year. I have finally found planner peace! I love it!
