In our digital age, computers and tablets are supreme! We use them for everything – to do our banking, check our emails and even writing letters. So why would I be talking about a notebook/journal? Because despite all our technology, pen and paper still have a very big part to play in our offices and schools.
I work from home and have a small home office. While I like it to be nice and uncluttered, I always have a pen and paper handy (usually a notebook). I am always jotting down notes and ideas so pen and paper is the fastest and easiest way, rather than switching on the laptop and creating an electronic note (and I can take a notebook with me for when inspiration strikes).
I was sent the Legami My Notebook Dotted Bullet Journal from Executive Pens Direct. This is a small 192-page journal, measuring 13cm x 21cm x 1.7cm and encased with a soft PU leather cover. A lot of notebooks or journals have lined or blank pages but this one has dotted ones on 100GSM FSC certified paper White Paper, which I think make it easier on the eye and easy to use.
Inside, it has a world map (where you can mark off places you have been), a contents page, a page for yearly goals, a yearly planner, a monthly planner, several pages for contacts and a page my ID/User Names ad Passwords (although I really wouldn’t recommend writing these down). On each numbered page there are also weather icons should you wish to record the weather for that day.
The notebook also features a back pocket on the inside back cover (ideal for business cards, credit card etc.), two book marks to mark different pages (in different colours), a page marker / pen holder and an elastic strap to keep the notebook closed.
I love the Legami My Notebook Dotted Bullet Journal. It looks good in black (lots of other colours are available) and despite its small size has plenty of space. It also compliments my Parker Jotter XL Matte Black Ballpoint Pen. It is a good size to leave of the desk or in the drawer as well as being the perfect size to take out with you.
Executive Pens Direct are even offering from embossing (for a limited time only) with up to 6 characters so you can personalise it.
A good jotter or notebook is a must for any home office and the Legami My Notebook Dotted Bullet Journal is a perfect accompaniment.
