My Notebook Collection

Only one notebook gets the honor of being my current Bullet Journal, but I have quite a few others in rotation on a regular basis. You’ve been asking for it, so I’m finally diving deep into my notebook collection and sharing all of the details. I think it’s safe to say that I have a “little” notebook problem, but the truth is that I love each and every one of them.

Not every notebook ends up being used for its intended purpose (as you’ll see here in a bit), but all of them get loved and used no matter what. I’m a huge believer in not wasting resources, so even those notebooks that didn’t stand up to their task will get re-used in some form or another.

I can’t wait to walk you through my notebook collection today, so let’s do it!

I'm walking you through my notebook collection today! Ready? Let's go!

MY NOTEBOOK COLLECTION

I’ll be going from smallest to largest as we go through my entire notebook collection. As always, I’ll include links for where to purchase your own.

MY TRAVEL JOURNAL

Notebook Collection - Travel JournalI picked up this gorgeous leather travel journal from CurtisMatsko on Etsy last year.

Curtis hand-makes each of his leather journals in Portland Oregon and they are just to die for. You can also find them over at www.portlandleather.com along with a slue of other delicious handmade leather goodies.

I decided to use mine as a travel journal, and although I haven’t had the chance to use it much, I’m definitely looking forward to slowly filling her up with stories, sketches, and more from all of my adventures.

SOFT-COVER MOLESKINE

Notebook Collection - MoleskineI purchased this soft-cover Moleskine notebook last year when I wanted to do a comparison between it and the A5 Leuchtturm notebook.

After the review, I decided to re-purpose her as my “practice” Bullet Journal, where I test out new layouts and ideas before going full steam ahead in my every day Bullet Journal.

Moleskine notebooks are readily available in retail stores, but you can pick them up on Amazon as well as www.moleskine.com.

MY FIRST BULLET JOURNAL

Notebook Collection - My First Bullet JournalWords can’t even begin to express how much I love this notebook. As you’ll see over the next 5 notebooks, I kind of have a thing for Leuchtturm.

This Bullet Journal was used, loved, and filled to the brim. I still like to flip through her (yes, my notebooks are female) from time to time and watch my progression from newbie bullet journalist to the methods that I currently use today.

This is the Emerald color, and can be found both on Amazon and over at Goulet Pens (my retailer of choice).

MY CURRENT BULLET JOURNAL

Notebook Collection - My Current Bullet JournalMy current Bullet Journal is (surprise!) another A5 Leuchtturm1917. Dot grid as always, and filled with just as much love and experimentation as its predecessor.

I’ve added a fun little rub-on sticker to this one that I found at Michaels (sadly they’re not available online). You might notice some dings and scratches on this one. I’ve been traveling a lot lately so she’s kind of been through the ringer :)

This is the Azure color, and can be found both on Amazon and over at Goulet Pens (my retailer of choice).

MY PERSONAL JOURNAL

Notebook Collection - My Personal JournalI decided to stick with what I know and love, and get another dot grid A5 Leuchtturm to use as my personal journal.

Dee over at Decade Thirty has some awesome journaling prompts over on her blog that I’ve been using to get my creative juices flowing each day, and I just love it!

I started journaling back in February and I’m hooked!

This is the Army Green color, and can be found over at Goulet Pens (my retailer of choice).

MY “EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN” NOTEBOOK

Notebook Collection - My "Everything Under The Sun" NotebookI’m almost done with the Leuchtturms, I swear! :) I picked this little gem up last year, fully intending to make her my second Bullet Journal.

When she arrived, she only had one bookmark, so I re-purposed her to use as my Blog & Buisness BuJo.

She’s now on her third role, serving as my handwriting practice notebook for the Rock Your Handwriting Challenge.

This is the Lemon color, and can be found both on Amazon and over at Goulet Pens (my retailer of choice).

THE OFFICIAL BULLET JOURNAL

Notebook Collection - The Official Bullet JournalThis Official Bullet Journal is not-so-patiently waiting in the wings to become my third Bullet Journal.

I added on a vinyl mandala sticker that I made (available soon in my Etsy shop!) to spruce up the black cover, which is making it even harder to wait to use her. I mean… look at her!!!!

Three bookmarks, a designated future log section, detailed Bullet Journaling instructions, AND it’s made by Leuchtturm? Who could resist?

This beauty is available over at BulletJournal.com

FILOFAX NOTEBOOKS

Notebook Collection - Filofax Notebooks

I really don’t have enough great things to say about these beauties! They’re fountain pen friendly, come with 4 colorful dividers, AND the pages are removable and replaceable.

I picked up the blue one to use as a brain dump of sorts, but have since repurposed her to use for book notes.

The lime green notebook is patiently waiting for me to get off my butt and implement GTD already.

You can find these Filofax notebooks in different sizes and colors over at Goulet Pens.

BLOG & BUSINESS BULLET JOURNAL (v2.0)

Notebook Collection - Blog & Business Bullet Journal v2.0This ginormous A4 sized Leuchtturm1917 was my first attempt at going big for my Blog & Business Bullet Journal.

While I absolutely loved the size of the pages, I couldn’t get over how thick and bulky this notebook was, so version 2.0 was kind of a wash.

I’m coming up with a new use for her very very soon… something that involves her never moving from my desk :)

The A4 Master can be found both on Amazon and over at Goulet Pens (my retailer of choice).

BLOG & BUSINESS BULLET JOURNAL (v3.0)

Notebook Collection - Blog & Business Bullet Journal (v3.0)After finally realizing the error of my ways with my previous version, I happily moved into this pink Leuchtturm Master Slim notebook for the third and final version of my Blog & Biz BuJo.

I’ve still got wonderfully large pages, but the notebook itself is much thinner and easier to manage.

The bulk is gone and I’m happy to report that she’s getting used and loved on a regular basis.

This is the Pink color and can be found (surprise!) over at Goulet Pens.

CLAIREFONTAINE NOTEBOOK

Notebook Collection - Clairefontaine NotebookI recently learned about a thing called Seyes ruling (or French ruling), and I knew that I wanted to give it a try. So, I picked up this little gem of a notebook.

I’ve been using it for notes and random scribbles, but I hereby solemnly swear that I will actually practice my handwriting in it very soon.

The paper in this notebook is phenomenal, and holds up extremely well to fountain pens. I’ve tested 20+ different inks in it so far and there has been no bleeding whatsoever!

Check it out over at Goulet Pens :)

RHODIA DOT PAD

Notebook Collection - Rhodia Dot PadOK, so I don’t know if this one technically counts as a notebook, but it is one of the most-used in my notebook collection for sure.

Rhodia paper is notorious for being excellent quality, and I love to use this notepad for sketching and doodling.

Whenever I’m creating printables for the Tribe Resource Library, this is what I’m using. It’s so simple to just tear off the page when I’m done and scan it in.

You can find your very own on Amazon or Goulet Pens.


Phew!
