I’ve been obsessed with notebooks ever since I can remember. As a result, I have many different notebooks and wanted to share my collection with fellow notebook lovers! Please let me know what you think!
I started off with my first video for the blog! I just went over the three notebooks I could find from high school, one notebook from college, a binder I had in high school and some bonus pens and pencils I had used in high school. Hope you like it!
After starting the Pen Showcase series I realized I couldn’t really do it without doing a series about my Notebook Obsession! I briefly talked about it in my Stationery Love post but here’s a more indepth introduction.
One of my favourite material things in the world is books. I love having a physical book in my hand when reading or writing. Ever since I started reading, I have loved them. I felt like I needed them even when I didn’t. I think I just really liked paper because I remember just having a lot of scrap paper around the house.
For notebooks, I like the aesthetics and the texture of a page. For this reason, I have a lot of notebooks. I love the blankness of an empty piece of paper, especially if it’s dot grid paper or graph paper. Obviously, one starts buying notebooks for school reasons; so most of my notebooks started out as notebooks with ruled paper. Then I started buying notebooks with cute covers, and now I’ve kinda moved onto just nice paper (but cute covers still get in every once in a while). Sometimes I feel like I just buy notebooks to collect them (ex: I need all of a specific brand!) but sometimes I will need a notebook for a specific reason.
Here are some pictures of all my notebooks I have at the time of writing this (and I’m sure I gave forgotten some already!).
These are all my notebooks that I could find at the time of taking the picture. There are at least two that are missing that I know of!
And here’s a gallery of all the full size notebook pictures:
All of these notebooks were bought in high school or before! Currently not using any of them or have plans for them in the close but distant future.
Most of these notebooks were bought during college or after! Some were gifts! Most of these are empty but I have plans on using them in the future!
All of these notebooks are in use right now, or have been planned with a specific intent in mind!
These notebooks are, or will become, my bullet journals!
And bonus, here’s my Instagram picture from when I was assembling the notebooks together:
