Squared notes – my Filofax mini lists

A couple of years ago I went on a shopping binge in the states one of the items I bought was a rainbow spiral notepad of square post-it sized paper. I had 5 minutes before the shop closed and bought it thinking they were sticky notes. No such luck.

Nevertheless they proved a great addition to my desk and handy for writing quick notes down on in the office (and also quite funny watching people steal them thinking they were sticky notes and try to stick them).

One great thing is they are perfect for slotting into my personal Filofax. I tend to use them for the additional mini Iists that I need, whether it is my todo list for the week (to make me look at it) or a list to things to pack like in the one pictured.

Bright, vibrant and eye catching. I do keep a running to do list towards the back of my Filofax, but it is nice to put the immediate or important todos right at the front where I will see them – after all the thing I use the Filofax for most is checking my diary.

P is for…. Paper, Printables and Pictures (oh my!) #atozchallenge

P is a nice healthy letter of the alphabet. Plenty of words… too many words. I’ve talked a lot about (note)paper lately, being a notebook blog, so for atozchallenge readers dropping by, I thought I’d drop the notebook focus and write a blog about Printables.

I absolutely LOVE Printables, whether it is: my desk calendar, planner pages, forms, Shopping list, cards, recipe cards, gifts, origami, crafts, and lists. Don’t already use them? See what delights the internet can offer you:

– organised home – household notebook
– philofaxy – diary inserts and Templates
recipes from kayotic kitchen
– an old favourite in productive flourishing
Printable Paper and Lists

Such an easy way to get organised and take control.

Every time I use Printables I aways have great ideas for my own and personalisation. So if anyone has any advice or tips and how to make my own Printables that would be much appreciated (I would of course share them on the blog).

Botanic Memo Box Set

When he went on holiday┬ámy BF bought me a memo pad, in a cute box – his words “I don’t really know what it is?”. ┬áThe concept of why you would want notelets in a box was apparently alien to him (along with how I can use so many notebooks).

The memo box part of the Botanica collection available from Galison.com. It is a colourful design (even though the dominant colours are brown and olive. The notelets have a light pattern on them, that don’t distract the writing, but make for special notepaper.

The box contains 250 sheets of paper and measure 3-1/2 x 5-1/2″. Perfect for posh little notes without going overboard or if you just want to brighten up someone’s day. Paper is of good quality and you don’t get bleeding with inky pens. I can’t stop doodling on them.
