In Praise of the Everything Notebook

Paper & Pen


My DIY Planner has become so much more than just a planner. I’ve started calling it my Planner/Everything Notebook because it really contains my life all in a single place. It’s so nice to have everything I need in one notebook. This is something I’ve wanted to accomplish for a long time. I’m a little embarrassed about how much I enthuse about this notebook, but I’m guessing y’all have grown used to me praising such things by now.

These are some benefits I’ve found to having an everything notebook.

  • less to carry with you
  • you automatically know where that obscure note or idea is located
  • it cuts down on notebook indecision
  • it’s easy to customize
  • you can easily make an index or use sticky tabs to find important things
  • it can help you be more productive

Does anyone else have an all-in-one, everything notebook?

  1. I was so excited when I saw this on Instagram earlier today – I SOOOO know how you feel. So far this year I’m using multiple 6×9-ish notebooks and keeping them in one clutch-style bag and it’s working the best that anything has in a long time, BUT IT’S BECAUSE IT’S ALL TOGETHER. I have a lovely 3-inch binder that I want to use for everything except journaling. I’m hoping to spend some time next week pulling things together to start using it with February. We’ll see, haha.

    1. I like the idea of always keeping multiple notebooks together in the same bag. When I try using more than one notebook, I inevitably leave them at work or at home and never have what I need. Good luck putting together your binder!

      1. That’s the trouble I usually have! And, I’m on the computer right now procrastinating from putting the binder together. I got a bunch of the stuff I want to use out and put it on the table and was like, “Hmm… I didn’t mark what days I blogged in my calendar.” Goofball self. hahaha
