I love stationery, a lot. Notebooks, journals, papers, labels, pens, pencils, calendars, planners, the list goes on and on. As much as I love them though, my daughter (14) loves them even more. My goodness does she ever have a collection. She has bins and bins of notebooks in all sizes and shapes. She does use them though so I can’t give her too hard of a time about it. You know what notebooks sitting in a bin not being used is don’t you?
And what happens to clutter?
It gets P.U.R.G.E.D.
So she uses them. She is a writer at heart so I often see her writing furiously away. In fact she is working on a novel and that apparently takes many notebooks :)
So imagine the fighting that ensues anytime a stationery company sends us a “care” package. The drool alone is ridiculous but the cat fighting is so unnecessary, sheesh :) Actually I’m totally on to her and now I secretly sneak those stationery boxes into the house and squirrel them away in my office. At least until I’ve had a chance to review them.
Blue Sky is one company we recently received a box from. I’ve used their products before and they are fun, fun, fun. They have a product called a Multi-Task Notebook and it is essentially a list notebook. Some of you may remember this post I did on why I think having a list notebook is such a great idea. Any notebook will work but this is the first time I’ve sort of seen one geared specifically for this purpose. Let me show you.
It provides you with different sections to batch tasks which is something else I strongly suggest. This notebook includes three sections….to do, to buy and to call. It also includes pocket pages in between each.
One of their weekly/monthly planners is what I’m now using as my blog planner and it is working beautifully for me, a much better fit for this purpose.
Love these planning pages at the beginning of every month.
And I really love the monthly tabs.
Here’s a quick glimpse of some of their other fun products:
Don’t Forget Notepad for the door
Magnetic Grocery Pad
And a MousePad Pad
Plus many many more! You can find this line of products for purchase at two places…their Blue Sky website and as well at Target. I am also hoping to arrange a weekly bundle offer for my shop as well, that would be awesome. I’ll keep you posted if we can make it work.
