A Notebook for Saving Money

Here’s the kind of headline I like to see: Create a notebook for saving money: In previous columns, I’ve mentioned organizing recipes and coupons, creating a price book to track product prices, a garden journal and menu planning. A frugal notebook is a place to organize all these useful tools. It’s easy to put together […]

Moleskine Folio Sketchbook Review

So the first question about the new Moleskine Folio sketchbook is “HOW BIG IS IT?” Is it this big? Is it this big? Is it this big? Well, when you stop having fun with perspective, it’s really this big: I had seen the measurements before I ordered it– 11 3/4 x 16 1/2″– but still, […]

Jack Kerouac’s Notebooks: Not What You’d Think!

What would you expect to find in Jack Kerouac’s notebooks? Probably not this: Jack Kerouac — Mr. On the Road, the King of the Beats, who begat the beatniks who begat the hippies who begat the hipsters — Jack Kerouac, the fountainhead of cool — that Jack Kerouac was obsessed with — guess what. Freedom? […]

1980s Roaring Spring Spiral Notebook

Here’s a pretty basic notebook from the mid-1980s. I used it for a while in high school to keep track of school assignments and such– I dated each page, and noted each day’s assignments and deadlines. It’s got a nice clean design, but is otherwise quite boring! I’m not sure why I favored it at […]

Bob Graham’s Notebooks In the News

A few years ago, former Senator Bob Graham, then a presidential candidate, raised some eyebrows when it was revealed that he kept extremely detailed diaries noting how he spent every minute of his day: 12:50: Cissy thinks she’s going into labor 1:15: Cissy preparing to leave for Baptist Hospital 1:20-1:30: MLTH.
