4. DIY hand segmented moleskine planner
Have you actually already got a stunning moleskine book that you’ve been wishing you had something to do with, but the pages inside are only lined or a grid and therefore not necessarily suited for keeping a calendar in? In that case, we think you’ll get a real kick out of the way Minnesota Scatterbrain went ahead and drew themselves a calendar in their favourite notebook by hand, using the lines they already had to work with as a guide.
