Review and Giveaway: Archer Planner

Here’s a new entry in the growing market for highly formatted planners. The Archer Planner from The Active System Co. comes in a 3-pack of stapled booklets. The 3 notebooks are differentiated by the colored block that wraps around the spine, in red, yellow or green, but they are otherwise identical. Each notebook is designed […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: William

This is one of my favorite notebook addict submissions, because these notebooks are truly full of stories! “My name is William, last November marked 20 years for me as a ships agent. Indirectly my notebook habit began in the US Army. A very instrumental part of infantry basic training is you are required to keep […]

Planner Formats

How do you feel about planner notebooks with highly formatted pages? I love seeing images of how people use them, as the pages sometimes look wonderfully dense and textured with text and colors and highlighting. But when it comes to using them myself, I’m a bit reluctant. I make lots of lists on paper, but […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Jenny

This week’s addict blogs about pens, paper and more at The Finer Point. Jenny has accumulated a prodigious collection of Field Notes and other brands of small staple-bound notebooks, both used and unused. I love the way all the used ones look in the first photo– so much color variation but such nice, neat bundles […]

Review & Giveaway: CR Brand Notebook Wallets

I first came across the CR Signature Notebook Wallet a few months ago and immediately thought it was a great idea. A notebook and a wallet are both key daily carry items for almost everyone, so shouldn’t there be a good way to combine them? But it’s surprisingly hard to find something that does both […]

Rekonnect Magnetic Notebook

I love this notebook idea but it makes me mad! Why does it make me mad? Because I had a version of this idea myself but I wasn’t savvy enough to figure out how to put it on Kickstarter and raise over $175,000 to make it happen! I think many of us notebook lovers have […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Caylee

This week’s addict is a Moleskine fan, with quite a shelf-full of various sizes and shapes of Moleskines, with many decorated covers: Caylee says: “My love for Moleskine knows no limit. I love them purely for how simple, classic, and consistent they are. And the paper, oh my, the paper. It fits the way I […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Cynthia Morris

This week’s addict is the blogger at Original Impulse, where she offers “support and resources to help you love your creative life.” She was faced with a decision about what to do with all these filled notebooks!   “As I unpack and move into my new home, I am faced with a decision: do I […]

Paper in the Digital World

Some lovely notebook images and thoughts about why we still love paper, and in fact may love paper even more because our lives have gone digital. From the article: “If you find yourself dependent on notebooks, even if much of your work is online, you are part of a growing number of people who are […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Bubbe Wisdom

This week’s addict, the blogger at Bubbe Wisdom, is actually a recovered notebook addict now… which makes me a little sad, I must confess. She says: “See that pile of notebooks? They represent twenty plus years of collecting inspirational ideas on paper. Each notebook represents a category: stitching, contemporary quilts, weaving, baskets, fashion, fine artists, […]
