Three Things Thursday

summer notebooking

I have mentioned that I have a slight  substantial issue with notebooks.  I just cannot seem to pass up a beautiful notebook.  Sigh.  This month I have been in one notebook, a fairly chunky B6 (lower right).  I like the size of the page but the cover is a bit floppy.  I have done well keeping up with the various sections and have probably done more note-keeping this month than I have in the past.  Best of all, I have learned somethings.

  1. I want to keep my planning in one place.  I use a Moleskine planner for work the last three years but I need my work life and my non-work life to be synced up on paper so this year, I will use my Moleskine for all the date-keeping.
  2. I love lists but I am not a bullet-journaler.  I just can’t make it work.  I love looking at pictures on Instagram of bullet journals but I am setting aside the practice for my own notebook.  I love having a weekly list that I can carry around and check off so I will continue with that practice.
  3. I want to journal more about the day-to-day, ordinary life things.  I have done this more in my #onebookjuly notebook and it is a practice I will continue.  I will return to my B6 slim notebook (upper right) for this recordkeeping.  I like the size and the cover and I still have 3 blank inserts so that should hold me for a few more months.  This size is easy enough to carry in my purse too.
