The advantages to using a digital journal over an analog journal are the ability to archive them and the ability to [...]

I love my smartphone, but when it comes to to-do lists, bullet journals, diaries and other note taking, I prefer a good old fashioned paper notebook. Putting a pen to paper and watching a notebook become worn as it fills with info, ideas and memories makes me smile. I'm kind of a notebook addict and [...]

Refillable notebooks have been around for decades, but reusable notebooks are completely new. Imagine buying one notebook that you can use over and over again. Let me introduce you to the Wipebook.

I have fond memories of opening a new box of Crayola Crayons on Christmas morning. Do you remember the smell and the feeling of seeing a box of pristine unbroken sharp tipped crayons with their perfect untorn labels? I enjoyed coloring images in coloring books because I was good at it. I was able to [...]

papersaver

Here's a great idea that is green and offers unique customization options. It's the Paper Saver notebook. Actually it's a notebook cover made of faux leather in three colors. It doesn't come with any pages of its own though. What you do is take a stack of 40 - 50 pages of A4 sized printer [...]

Before becoming a cop, I had a job working in a cubicle. I often found myself sneaking away to get a break from staring at those walls. Unfortunately, this was before the age of the smartphone, so sneaking away generally meant I was hiding, staring at a different set of walls, with not much else [...]

When the folks at Code&Quill asked if I would like to take a look at their Traveler and Origin notebooks, a little voice in my ear [...]

Digitizing notes and drawings can be done a few different ways. You can snap a picture with your phone and upload the picture to Evernote, you can scan pages with a flatbed scanner, and you can also use special pen/paper combos like those from Livescribe. All of these methods work, but each have their own [...]
