Silk and sonder review: A planner sells it short when you call it. It lasts only a month for each spiralbound booklet, each with a theme. June 2020 has been “the choice,” and in her intro, she says it has been chosen to remind users that “you have only the power to decide how you react, amend and continue, regardless of what happens in the world.” In addition to the normal monthly calendar, where every weekly pages offer plenty of room to outline every day’s to-do list, you will be motivated by several other activities.
As much as I value a classical to-do list, I have been psyched for the month ahead by the little activities that have taken on the first third of the booklet—and have helped me stop and think about what I was really looking for that month, instead of being stuck in the head down, daily grind of the existing booklet.
It was difficult for me to spend 20 dollars on a plan, let alone 20 dollars a month. This is more of a magazine-meets-motivating-guide-meets-organizer than a conventional planner, with a box that’s surprising and delightful. Still, however. Even if you save 79 dollars with an annual subscription, that is 160 dollars annually.
