I haven’t been using traveler’s notebooks (TN) very long, but I am the type to “Go Big or Go Home.” I’ve been building an insert stash. I’d like to share with you my traveler’s notebook insert haul from April.
I’ve gotten inserts from the following stores: TJ Maxx, Big Lots, and the bookstore at USF. I also recommend looking at Ross, Marshalls, Stein Mart, and Bealls Outlet.
I stocked up on the Piccadilly notebooks. I use them in the Wide and my Husband may start using a TN as well, and this is the size insert he likes. They were on clearance ($5.98 for a 3 pack). I eventually cleared out the Barnes & Noble stock of them!
3 booklet set of notebooks for $4.99. Themes: suitcases, cameras, and lightbulbs.
2 booklet set of Moleskine pocket sized notebooks in purple for $2.99.
3 booklet set of Poppin pocket sized notebooks in Lime Green (Tinker Bell green to me) for $2.99.
OMG! I hit the mother load here!
3 booklet set of pocket sized notebooks for $1.50 each!!!
I cleared the shelf! I’ve picked some of these up at Big Lots before, but in my experience with Big Lots is I may not always be able to find something I’ve seen there before because the inventory can be random. I’m very happy to have found a stockpile for cheap!
I encourage all those who use Traveler’s Notebooks to give this outlet-type stores a chance. There’s nothing wrong with buying off ETSY or Amazon or other websites, but you may be able to find decent inserts in your area for less money than buying online.
Total # of inserts: 29 booklets
Total cost: $21.47
Cost per insert: $0.74 per insert!!!
I love cheap inserts!
