I’m really enjoying using my Dark Brown Macata as a TN Wallet. I’ve moved in and have been using it for the past two weeks and so far it’s been going great! Here’s how I set it up.
The wallet part of the TN wallet is mostly the same as the one in my Blue Passport Macata. I’m going straight to the planner part.
My first insert is the weekly insert by CN Papercrafts. I decorated the front with alpha stickers and a cute little sticker by @kraftrina.
Right inside the planner I stuck a sheet of decorative paper and a motivational sticker on the front page. On the back of the cover I stuck a pocket from the Tiny Stickers that I found before, with a sheet of glitter stars in it. In front of it I stuck on a sticky note with my shopping list.
The bulk of the insert is of course the weekly planner, with the days of the week on one side situated horizontally, and grid paper on the opposite side. This is basically how the Hobonichi Weeks is laid out, so it’s not a huge adjustment to move here for me. The only thing the insert was missing was a monthly view, which was easily remedied with a simple print out of a calendar that I searched online. I tipped it in at the start of the month with some washi.
The back of the weekly planner holds my favorite Post Its, and another pocket that holds a small sheet of marker stickers. This is also where I installed a penloop substitute that holds my go-to pen of the moment (Pilot Prera).
The second insert is the 100gsm cream unlined insert by CN Papercrafts, and I assigned this to be my Bullet Journal. This is actually something new for me, and I am still trying to get used to it. Prior to moving to this TN Wallet, I had incorporated some sort of bullet journaling into my Hobonichi Weeks since I did have a lot of space in the grid area opposite the weekly layout. Since I am using a much reduced size, I needed to transfer the short-hand journaling to another form, and this is how I chose to try it.
I decorated the inside of the cover again with some nice decorative paper and another motivational sticker, and below that I have a sticky note with my current bullet journal bullet code. I started on the first page right away, and I find that I mostly use it to log events that happen that are not in my standard routine.
The back of the journal is currently blank except for another pocket that holds another small sheet of stickers, this time of cute little colorful flags.
Which brings us to the end of the TN Wallet. To summarize, I have my wallet inserts and two notebooks inside this TN Wallet, and it brings me to a nice, compact, chunky package that I can chuck into my purse easily.
I filmed a flip through of my TN Wallet, and it shows a bit more of the wallet inserts here in case you want to see it in detail.
Will I be staying with this setup? I sure hope so! I really do like the pocket size a lot, and I’m quite happy to be back to this size even though I really liked Hobonichi Weeks.
