My Traveler’s Notebook Walkthrough
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with notebooks, pens, lists, and journals. About six months ago I discovered Traveler’s Notebooks and I have been hooked ever since! They allow me to have endless customization to keep track of my life so today, I decided to give you a walkthrough of my current Traveler’s Notebook.
What is a Traveler’s Notebook?
Traveler’s notebooks are magical, completely customizable, one of a kind notebooks that allow the user to keep track of literally anything. The cover can be made of various materials like fabric or leather and it holds little notebooks inside with elastic.
My Traveler’s Notebook
I have a Websters Pages Color Crush cover which I love! It is gorgeous and sturdy enough to be thrown in my purse every day. I could gush about it for days and it was only about $15 with a coupon at Jo-ann Fabrics. Win-win!
Inside My Traveler’s Notebook
Inside, I have decorated the pockets with scrapbook paper and pretty paperclips, I use clips on my notebooks to mark my place, and keep one of my Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens in the pen loop. Side note: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens are my current favorite pens. They write smoothly, have many colors to choose from, and don’t bleed or smear. I highly recommend them!
I will start with my most recent addition because I am so very excited about it: a bullet journal. I decided to make it with dots rather than a grid but with use, I might decide to make the next one with a grid. Next month, I am going to start using this for tracking habits, planning my days, and maybe more. I will let you know how it is going at some point next month as I get it set up. Like most of the notebooks that I use, I designed this notebook myself then printed it out, sewed it together, and cut it down to size.
I use this notebook as a place to jot down notes, grocery lists, to do lists, and anything else that I need to remember for the short term. It is messy and I love it.
I, of course, love my books and I use Goodreads but I like to also keep an physical record of what I am reading. That’s where this notebook comes in. When I designed the notebook, I guess my brain decided to take a day off because I forgot to add a blank for the author’s name but I will manage. How do you keep track of the books that you are reading?
A good friend of mine gave this Webster’s Pages planner to me so it is the only one of my notebooks that was not made by me. Even though it is not tailored exactly to me, I have enjoyed using this planner. For starters, I really like that it has space for meal planning during the week. I am not a fan of the tiny amount of space for the weekend. Next month, I will use my new bullet journal for my plans so this notebook will be moving to my shelf soon. Probably, I will pull it out again to finish using it in the future.
