My notekeeper...

 I was helpfully clearing out my mum's writing desk a few months ago when I came across this leather writing folder and fell for it a bit.  I mean, look how pretty!  When I asked Mother about it she said it was one of her twenty-first birthday presents and she gave it to me.  Yay!  She also has a red one that I plan on acquiring one day too, one seemed enough for now though!  It still has the original writing paper and envelopes inside - I doubt Mother actually used them, they're in great condition.  I've been using it for storing my endless lists and random bits of paper with notes to myself scribbled on - no-one could accuse me of having a super memory, that's for sure...
 It's about the size of an iPad and even has a calendar inside, handy for when my phone inexplicably dies... (like it did Monday night and the postman was my alarm on Tuesday morning...)
 Here's what it usually looks like inside - I like writing in pencil so I have a couple of them, plus all my scraps of A4 that I was writing notes on at work, and the old envelopes with lists on (can't bring myself to use them and having to lick the old sticky bit, I've made that mistake before and ended up with a rotten taste on my tongue!).  I also ordered a couple of magazine subscriptions with my Clubcard vouchers so I'm just keeping them safe until I know the order worked.

Does anyone have one of these?  I can't be the only one who prefers real pencil-and-paper lists!



  1. Ah this is so lovely! I have a similarish notebook from paperchase which has special bookmark bits and little pockets for loose bits of paper - it's nice but not as stylish as this. Can't live without my lists!!!

  2. I'm a total listaholic, and fot some reason thought I could manage to downsize my diary this year. I usually have an a% day-to-page Paperchase one, but for some reason not only went smaller sized, but also week-to-view, so my lists are creeping out of the diary and threatening to take over the world!

  3. Love this! I'm obsessed with lists aswell, and I have a filofax for keeping track of everything. I have doezens of notebooks on the go aswell, for various different projects. I hate the thought of an electronic organiser - for me, its got to be paper and pen/pencil!

  4. Aw what a lovely, old school way to keep organized! It's so much prettier than a phone too =) xx

  5. I love it! I go back and forth - some days I prefer typing (it's faster for me); some days I prefer paper and pen (when I want to mull things over).

  6. I need one of these in my life! x
