It's snowing again ... making it the perfect day to transition into my new Bullet Journal for March. Sadly, there is only a handful of pages left in my current one, and I want to keep the month "intact." But even though I hate leaving the old one behind, the switch is softened by the fact that the new one is a bright orange dot-grid Leuchtturm -- perfect to brighten up the cold winter day!

Even though I'm using my Leuchtturm for BuJo inside the Hobo cover, I'm finding that the Hobo accessories are great for customization (and some creative fun).

For +Polly Carpenter - here are pics of Hobo notebook in comparison to Cahier and Leuchtturm1917.

Google + glitch (or my brain glitch) I guess but thank you [again] for these photos Kelly. Just what I needed.

This update likely won't surprise +Sophie Gist and +Megan Calcote after some of my recent posts as I tried to adapt to the Hobo Cousin.

I guess I had "separation anxiety" by having day pages (Hobo) in a separate place, versus having daily pages integrated into my BuJo. I know some of you keep your BuJos where you use them (and sometimes you have more than one -- e.g., one for home, one for work). But I need mine with me all the time for greatest control and to capture ideas/creative inspirations as they occur to me (which may not be between 9:00 and 5:00!) 

Over the past month of being a Hobo-user-in-training, I discovered that carrying both around was too much, and whenever I carried one I found myself needing the other. I also was wasting time deciding "where" to put things -- on a dated page in Hobo or on a general list/collection in Bujo.  (Sometimes I found myself picking an arbitrary due date just to have a place to "put things" -- which for me is a terrible idea, as I end up ignoring tasks that aren't "really" due on the date they are listed.) 

Here's the result: I'm back to using my Leuchtturm1917 as my BuJo/calendar combined, with these "hacks" via my Hobo experience.

1. I put the Leuchtturm inside my Hobo Cover. This enables me to add other sections/cahiers as needed. (See #2!)
2. I am using a Hobo Notebook (ordered when I got my other supplies; a Cahier would work for this too, but I happen to love the thin Hobo paper) for Monthly Grids. This hack was the biggest "a-ha moment" for me, as the reason I switched over to Hobo was for forward planning. I burn through BuJos every 3 to 4 months, so I couldn't have the full year's worth of grids available without having to redo them with every new BuJo. With this new "addition" (separated from the BuJo book, the way Midoris are set up), it means I can replace the BuJo as needed but the yearly grids will stay in the cover all year.

I hope you guys don't kick me out of this group now that I've revealed that I failed miserably at adapting to the Hobo -- although I AM still using the other Hobo items so maybe that counts. I guess I hadn't realized how much I loved/needed a "blank page" at my fingertips, a la +Ryder Carroll's original framework.

Here's a side angle view of the thin notebook and my Leuchtturm co-habitating in my Hobo Chocolate Orange Cover and Cover-on-Cover.

+Google+ really needs to fix that. It would be so nice to include photos in comments. Especially with these types of communities.

For the more "colorful" types in the group -- if you're like me, you've likely had trouble tracking down Leuchtturm1917s in bright colors. Many online vendors have limited color options. I'm happy to share that +Brian Goulet has expanded their offerings! Here's a link.

I had to choose white when I bought mine... Can't wait to buy a pretty one next time! Thanks.

One month into 2015 - I'd love to hear how everyone is doing with their Hobos. I'm still wishing I could've adapted more easily to mine, but my cobbled-together system is working for me thus far: official Hobo cover, Hobo notebook for monthly grid pages (the full year's worth), and Leuchtturm as Bullet Journal (project notes, collections, and daily pages) -- all in large A5 size. I've just added the smaller Hobo weeks booklet (not the same size as the others but it fits in the pocket). What hacks have you come up with?

Using mine but not the monthly columns, might start to track weight on them or something... I really really need to get or make a bookmark as the lack of one is reducing how often I want to refer to the day, in turn I don't get as much done...

If anyone is looking for highlighters for Hobo or BuJo, these are amazing. They are gel (they go on sort of "dry") and work great over both Coletos and the Hobo freebie Jetstream (I usually give the pen ink a moment to dry before highlighting it). I only have the orange one, but it's GREAT - a very clear/subtle color that enables the pen ink to show through beautifully, unlike some highlighters that are too heavy.

Love them! I also saw erasable highlighters on Amazon.

Saw this posted on the FB Hobo Group ... most of you are probably doing this already, but in any case it's interesting to see the company-recommended method for inserting a book into the Hobo cover. I was not folding my cover quite this far back.

This is why I'm loving the Mitsubishi Jetstream pen that came free with my Hobo. #It'sWaterproof!

I also love my Coletos and my Mangaka markers. I was surprised with the JetStream though, it writes way better than I expected (but no brown ink).

Maybe some of you have notice this, but I didn't until today: a cool kit for turning your Hobo into a hardcover book at the end of the year.

You need the kit and the tools. The directions are in Japanese but there are illustrations. Or so I've heard.
