Are you a list maker? Like to jot down notes? What about doodling? Chances are, you’re probably a notebook fanatic. And with all of the beautiful journals that are available, you should treat yourself to something that you’ll want use. In recent years, the design trends have skewed towards aesthetically pleasing stationery that’s made with high-quality materials. Gone are the days of conventional spiral-bound notebooks—these are books that you’ll want both write in and display in your home.
2. Store tiny notebooks in your purse or pocket
Miniature notebooks are perfect for when you’re on the go. Many measure between 3.5” by 5.5”, which is enough room to jot down your shopping list or something you’ll refer to later. Best of all, they’re slim enough to easily fit in your pocket or purse.
3. Let your journal inspire you
4. Try a Bullet Journal
If you enjoy keeping a notebook, you probably consider yourself an organised person. (I know I do!) One way to take your to-do lists to a new level is with a Bullet Journal. Basically, it’s a customisable organisation system that uses “rapid logging” to quickly record topics, tasks and other action items. There are colourful notebooks whose pages are dedicated to this unique style of working.
5. Customize your notebook with washi tape
Don’t see a journal that catches your eye? Create your own design with washi tape. This special type of Japanese adhesive is available in many different colours and patterns. It’s slightly transparent, which allows you to easily layer tape. I prefer the MT brand of washi tape that’s coupled with a nice Moleskine notebook.
