You know you’re a papernerd when…

27 May
  1. You have fabricated a reason to why you need that notebook.
  2. You have a favorite pen. And that matters.
  3. You have a favorite pen brand. And that matters too.
  4. You simply cannot buy a notebook before touching the paper inside.
  5. Happiness is buying a new notebook. Or pen.
  6. You get the urge to organize when seeing a beautiful notebook or accordion file…
  7. You dream of your own homeoffice with binders neatly organized.
  8. You use 15 minutes to find the right pen and paper, – just to discover you forgot what you were writing down in the first place.
  9. It takes you a lifetime to find the perfect notebook for that perfect use. And it probably doesn’t even exist.
  10. You’re not leaving the store without that notebook. Or pen.

    Just found your blog and I’m following on RSS now. Good stuff here.

    Quick question: what is the pen/pencil holder in the picture? It looks like a Grid-It, but the straps are smaller to accommodate pens and pencils. I’m intrigued (and, yes, I want one).
