I think I may have found a solution to all of my (organisational) woes. A notebook that allows you to move the pages around.
I've already order this one with dotted paper.
Can you imagine to possibilities? Create a new collection, but want to keep them together? No problem - just pull the page out and re-insert where you want.
Have a future event that you want to "diarise"? No problem - note it and put the page towards the back of your current ongoing lists. Hell, at only a few pounds for the cost of new paper inserts I may even go all extravagant and create a page a day diary Hobonichi style!
The only thing missing is a ribbon. Oh wait, you can remove the metal (yes metal!) little binders. That means I can drill a small hole in the top one and add as many ribbons as I like - colour coded too if I like!
And if I don't like any part of this notebook? Then each part can be bought separately.
I think I may have just stumbled on my notebook nirvana! I may need to go have a lie down.
I was in half a mind to send it back. But the more it stared at me through the cellophane, the more I realised that it was a good buy.
When I unwrapped it and flicked through the pages I knew I wasn't to be disappointed. I have already had an extensive look at the Arc range at Staples and let's just say that this Atoma feels a little more solidly built. But on the plus side the Arc hole punch is a lot cheaper, so if it does work with the Atoma sizing then I'm all for that!
