, I did use the Cousin solely for a while, but I always carry too much crap around (not great for my neck/shoulder problems). I bought a Spring-start original Techo, and that comes with me every day. The Cousin comes along occasionally when I don't have too much else to carry.
I'm using the Cousin for weekly task planning (see https://plus.google.com/+EphZero/posts/NG4mbRCAk2J) and as a scrapbook. The daily pages in the original Techo are great for focusing on the next few things I need to do, everyday notes and doodles, reference, etc.
I might get a January refill for each. It will bug me to stop using the Techo when it runs through next spring, but I think it will bug me more to be stuck in a cycle of buying April planners when absolutely nothing starts for me in April. :-)
Going to get another packet of the movable film, too, I think.
