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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
