Do you own too many blank journals and blank notebooks? Welcome to the club. I don’t know what is — anxiety, maybe? — that keeps me from using the stash of blank journals and notebooks I have, but I can never resist picking up more whenever I run across one that looks like it’s *perfect* for (fill in the blank purpose that’s never actually executed).
I jest, of course. I do use my blank journals and notebooks, but not at a rate consistent with their acquisition. I’ve got one notebook I keep all of the quotes I use for yoga in, which has some great divided sections where I can also pop in notes I have for sequence ideas or short entries about teaching/my students’ experiences where appropriate. I use a notebook for writing ideas, a small notepad for brain dumps and to-dos, and several other journals are strewn about the house collecting any number of things.
That said, I’m always looking at the next great blank journals and notebooks, if for no other reason than their aesthetic value. And frankly, I don’t judge you if you do the same or if you collect blank notebooks simply because you like how they look.
Let’s take a dive into some really rad blank journals and notebooks you can pick up. I’ve got a little of everything here, from meaty journals to small notepads you could pop in a (reasonably-sized) pocket.
