I've never really invested in notebooks, or done any length of writing in any. I have been known to scribble in cheap ones bought from the dollar store, or equivilent, and ones bought me by well-meaning friends and family. But when I do use one, it's those small spiral bound type that fit in the back pocket of my jeans, along with a half-chewed pencil and a pen-knife, nothing more. I hate carrying bags and loads of stuff. ;-)


Alexandra — I'm with you: simple and practical works for me. Though I'm often tempted by shiny notebooks and pens. I'm currently using a generic notebook from the local pharmacy for my "big ideas."

Yes, most definitely, simpler is better! Cheap ones from the dollar store will get the job done just as well as fancier notebooks.

The one I keep in my purse is a little spiral bound memo notebook, you know, like the kinds kids use to jot down their homework (or at least they used to use them--I'm not sure what they use nowadays!).

I work from home, so this means I don't have to carry anything anywhere, well nothing besides the tiny spiral bound memo pad that resides in my purse.

My other notebook that has the lists just sits eternally on the coffee table in front of my little work area, as does my dayplanner. It's very low-tech, low maintenance, which makes it easy for me.
