I'm a known paper addict. It was only recently that I started using Google Calendar in place of a paper planner, and it was only because I realized I needed to send myself notifications for EVERYTHING or else I would forget. Getting old is rough, guys.
But for grocery lists, to-do lists, doodles, product ideas and brainstorming - I have to have paper. There is just no replacement. Know what I mean? Well, some people would argue there's a replacement; it's called a cell phone. But I'm too old for that (see paragraph one).
That's why I am loving the new Mini Photo Notebooks from my Creative Kids Collection. Originally, I created them for kids; so they would have a fun place to draw and doodle with their cute little faces on the cover. A notebook that was small enough to fit in mom's purse so she could pull it out in times of need to keep the youngsters busy.
But then I started using them more than my kids and realized they are perfect for mom, too! With customizable covers, you can label them things like "Groceries," "To-Do's," "Honey-Do's," "Things to Remember," "Idea Notebook,"... the options are endless. And each comes with a photo cover too, which makes them a lot more fun to look at than something basic and store-bought.
Even better - label them with the names of each of your kiddos and keep their chores written inside, use it for writing down their homework and assignments, or write back and forth with them to create a keepsake for just the two of you.
Speaking of, you can use them as a memory book with titles like, "Letters to Lincoln," or "Mom Thoughts." At $17 for a set of 3, they make a great gift or an affordable option for you to order over and over again to fill your needs.
What would you use yours for?
