Folded pieces of paper that I need to be able to find

I generally have future notebooks stashed and ready. Being without a notebook is not an option. 

This week I am in a quandary. I do still have one option tucked away, but it is not the option I want to go with. I have found that the large journals from Attic Journals are perfect. I have already picked out my next few and they are literally on the way to rendezvous with me in New York City later this week. The challenge is that I only have a couple of pages left and more than a couple of days remaining. So, I find myself weighing how important something is for me to write down as I am afraid that I will run out of pages before I have my Attic Journals package in my hands. (To alleviate this happening again in the future, I have ordered a generous supply.)


  1. You could always improvise and add a few taped in pages, perhaps of a different color or type of paper to distinguish from the rest. Why not allow for a "transition" to the new journals and not have to worry about running out of pages?

  2. I’m a keep lots of notebooks handy and grab what’s available kind of gal. I wish I were as organized as all those who have a notebook system. You could take notes in your phone and transcribe them later.

  3. Running out of room? That's what margins are for!
    I have this vision of all these journals, stacked, and you searching through to find a blank page.

  4. I'm impressed that you have stayed with one type of journal. I have an odd assortment of spirals, hard-bound composition books, and soft cover journals You've made me curious about these journals--I'm off to check them out!
