As a writer, there’s this habit I’ve always had whenever I go into any store with stationary supply… Buying cute notebooks and journals! I simply can’t leave the store without going down the aisles to see what cute notebook I haven’t added to my collection that I now can add. As of now, I have about 20 but that doesn’t seem nearly enough to what I’d like. I don’t know, maybe I need an intervention.
I literally end up not using the notebooks for ages because I don’t want to “ruin” any of its pages, which would ruin the notebooks cuteness lol. I have to know exactly what I want to use the notebook for before I actually use it, everything has to be neat and organized. For that reason, I find myself buying “practice” or “junk” notebooks and “serious” or “official” notebooks. Yes, I know I do the absolute most. I can’t help it, even those have to be cute. It kind of helps me stay motivated to write, even though I don’t write in them right away.
I know I’m not the only one with this problem If I should even call it that because I watch so many notebook collection videos on YouTube and have read a few other bloggers posts sharing theirs. I thought it would be a great idea to share mine also:)
MY NOTEBOOK COLLECTION
Cute journals I picked up from the dollar store. They’re so shiny and glittery! I also made some small notebooks mimicking them, mainly the glitter using items I already had at home. I plan on doing a whole DIY notebook collection soon so stay tuned for that I’m going to get lots of cute items.
The ones I made are added below.
Here are 3 composition notebooks that I also got from the dollar store I believe. The middle, brown polka dotted notebook is one of my “junk” notebooks I mentioned. I only have a few blank pages left in it.
All of these are from the dollar store minus the donut worry one. I got that one from Big Lots. Notice the mini version of the black striped notebook?
I also picked up this student planner and diary. The inside pages are pink and pretty.
Hobby Lobby/Big Lots/WalMart finds
I really like the do what you love notebook because it’s also a clipboard and drawing pad. The inside pages have a pretty watercolor effect like the cover.
I believe the last 2 are my favorites so far. The pretty pink jumbo journal and arrows match my personality and blog so well. You can’t tell in this picture much, but they are both pink and rose gold.
This is my collection so far, I’m sure there will be more soon. Do you have a habit of buying cute notebooks often? Which notebook is your favorite from my collection?
