2018 Planner

Jibun Techo Biz Mini

Hello everyone! I know, I know… It’s been a while.

Anyway, I’m here to show you and with excitement… my 2018 planner, the Jibun Techo by Kokuyo. I only recently found about it when I was about to buy the Traveler’s Notebook 2018 weeks inserts at Jet Pens’ shop, but this Jibun looked so promising, minimalist, and looked so functional. So, I decided to give it a try and went on ahead with my purchase.

I tell you all… I was so in love right out of the box because it was just how I imagined it to be –smooth paper, a lot of lists pages, light weight, thin, and a lot, lot of functions and possibilities. Okay, let me show you why I am so excited about this.

Even if the description and instructions are in Japanese, they are pretty easy to figure out. It has a lot of ‘lists’ pages like dreams or life goals, money plan, recommendations, promises, gifts, books, etc.

It has a 3 year calendar and a yearly index. I usually use this for mails sent & received and for birthdays and anniversaries. I also liked that it has a habit tracker which I can use for tracking my meditation, healing, walking, coffee habits at the local cafe, spending, social network updates, etc. You can track up to 12 habits in a month. Cool. 😊

The monthly pages starts on December 2017 and runs up to Mar 2019. It has a mood tracker, 3 months calendar on the right bottom part, and lists on the left side.

And the weekly pages are the best part. It has a 24 hour time management, from midnight to midnight 😀 . It also has a weather tracker, moon phases, a tiny space for a short note, a mood tracker (again!), and a morning, afternoon, or evening schedule at a glance or it can also be used for meal planning, and a weekly “to do” lists on the left side of the spread.

And on the back part, it has a couple of blank (grid) pages, a looking back to 2018 and personal data pages.

For more visuals and a quick flip through of the pages and its features, please watch the video below.

Thanks for reading and for watching and I hope I won’t forget to show you all in a month or next year on how I used it.



  1. I’m LUVin’ mine. Started using the 2018 Biz Mini last month after a few tweaks. Brilliant use of space, with structure yet intensely flexible. Enjoy!

    • I do love mine already even if I only started using it this week. I can imagine the many ways I can use it for. It’s so versatile.
      Thanks for dropping by.
