Moleskine diaries are top of the sales charts year after year, and they've helped thousands of people organise their lives, appointments and projects. But which Moleskine diary is the best one for you? Each one suits a different type of person, so let's go through Moleskine's diary layouts to help you find the one to suit you.

 

 

Daily diary

Daily diaries are perfect if you've got a busy schedule, or like to manage your time down to the minute. Each page gives you space to lay out you day from 8am to 8pm to jot down all your important meetings and appointments, with helpful week markings to help professionals track where they are in the year.

If you like to play it a bit more free-form but need the extra space for evening reflections, or you like to make daily to-do lists, the schedule markings are subtle enough to ignore, so you can use each day's ruled page the way you like.

Weekly diaries

Offering a more balanced layout, Weekly diaries make it easy to stay on top of everything you've got coming up by showing your week at a glance. If deadlines are always sneaking up on you, or you find yourself buying birthday presents on the day-of, a Weekly diary might be the one for you. 

For those of you who like to plan your whole week at once, you've got three main options: Weekly NotebookWeekly Horizontal and Weekly Vertical. Weekly Notebook diaries are the most popular of the two, giving you your week on one page plus a notebook-style page each week to jot down important reminders, write a shopping list, or anything else you might traditionally do with a notebook. It's the most versatile diary option, with room to manage all the busy weeks that sneak up on you, or just capturing those moments of creative inspiration when they strike.

Weekly Horizontal diaries, on the other hand, spread your week over a double-page spread, giving you a little more space to keep track of each day's important details. If you like knowing what's coming up at a glance, the Weekly Horizontal view keeps everything right in front of your eyes, so you'll never let a due date sneak up on you again.

Finally, Weekly Vertical diaries suit the schedulers among us. Manage your days down to the hour, and never miss a meeting again? Honestly, what a dream.

Monthly diaries 

For a birds-eye view of your life, nothing beats a Monthly diary. Simple and clear, you can keep an eye on those upcoming birthdays, special events and deadlines for weeks in advance, making sure you're prepared for everything to come.

Each page-view shows you an entire month, with handy note spaces at the end of each week to catch the important moments that aren't tired to a specific date. Monthly diaries are ideal for simple, lightweight planners who don't get bogged down in details, and they're a perfect way to manage your uni life so you're always across those all-important due dates.
