Do you have the kind of life that involves both scheduling appointments and taking notes? You could carry around two books to accomplish this purpose, one planner and one notebook. Or, you could simplify your life and take along just one planner that has room for both planning and note taking!
If you prefer using daily planners with room for notes on each day of the week, you may like the Quo Vadis Notor with a small 8am – 7pm plan at the top of each page and a larger area underneath for notes. Exacompta’s Forum journal in the undated 365 format is quite similar with the biggest difference being that it is undated so that you can start your planning on any day of any year.

Another daily desk diary that could possibly accommodate notes is Exacompta Journal 21. The planning schedule runs down almost the entire length of the left side of each page, but if your appointment notes are brief then you’ve got plenty of room for notes on the right side of each page. Interestingly, this planner has 72g paper in a soft green color.
