Collection Notebooks Walk-Thru

When I started using a Traveler’s Notebook, I knew I wanted a Bullet Journal-style collections section, but it was going to have to be a separate notebook. I started one in the Chic Sparrow Wide TN (“Collections”), and have been working on filling it up.

It’s taken me longer to fill up the first notebook than I initially thought it would to be honest. I’m currently up to page 78 of 99 in Collections #1, so it won’t be too much longer. Also, Collections #1 is more for long-term lists.

Ran out of room on the TOC, so I started an Index in the back.

If I have multiple posts ready to go, I put them here so I have a reminder.

List of Blog pictures and videos needed.

This is really handy, since I batch sessions of filming and taking pictures.

During #onebookJuly2016, I did add a second collections notebook to the CS Maverick TN I was using, with the idea of it being for more short-term / temporary lists.

Very messy Table of Contents

I left the next two pages blank as well, for the Table of Contents to continue.

Other Collections pages, where I noted things that would need to be transferred post-#onebookJuly2016. I still haven’t done that…shame on me.

This post was originally written June 23. It’s now Sept. 21. I still have not finished the first Collections notebook. I think I’m on page 83 or 85.

If you have long term lists, how do you keep track of them? Phone app? Loose-leaf paper? Post-its everywhere?

    This is much better over my scattered notes here, there and everywhere.

      Exactly! That’s what drew me to the Bullet Journal system was the lists and notes collection process, which I’ve customized here.

    I love journals! I love writing – old school writing, NOT on the computer!!! So these journals speak to me!

  3. Valerie says:

    I love your travel journal. It’s so exciting to write down your dreams and then doing them.

    I’m just about to jump onto the bullet journal train I think. My friend was showing me how to do it at a conference the other day.

      That’s awesome, Liz! I hope you’ll do a blog post about it! I’d like to see how you’re setting things up and what you think of it.

  5. I keep everything together in a google sheet for my blog and a loose leaf sheet planner for my life stuff. I like your notebook and how you have it laid out!

  6. We talked about this on my blog this week (As you know 🙂 ) I use Todoist for my notes. I love the covers of these.

    I would love to have one of those journals! I keep lists on pads of paper that are all scattered around, it would be so helpful to have them all in one place.
