My current EDC (Everyday Carry) traveler’s notebook is the Foxy Fix Marina Le Petit #5, the B6 size. I am loving this size! I moved in right after #onebookJuly2016 was over. I’ve been playing around with different inserts. I have no formal inserts in there right now, and by formal inserts I mean notebooks that are pre-formatted.
I’m mainly using blank cheap notebooks and drawing in and setting up the weeks and days however I need them. I’m mainly using the CaseMate thin inserts (featured in this post[link post]) and some of the cheap small composition books from the Cheap B6 Insert Score post [hyperlink that].
Let’s take a look inside:
Jane Lau Dashboard and Folder
Teal Composition Book
This insert is supposed to be for writing and tracking blog post and BPIs (blog post ideas). I even hole-punched it, thinking that would make it easier to archive. Eh…for writing the blog posts, it’s not really working. I may just use it for to keep track of ideas and the progress charts.
Purple CaseMate notebook, with Shiny Fall Leaves
This is where I draw up my dailies, weeklies, and do my journaling. Each day is separate by stickers or washi tape.
The purple insert is the second one. The first one I was playing around with is below. I wasn’t sure what I was going to be doing, so this insert is very experimental.
Blue Small Composition Book
This notebook is a throw-away one, whether it’s a quick note to be migrated at a later date or a rough weekly or monthly layout sketch. Nothing in this notebook is archive worthy.
Starting in January 2017, I will be using Yellow Paper House’s quarterly booklets, monthly and weekly set up. I took advantage of their 2017 bundle sale.
I also bought a Midori pen loop. That sucker was not easy to get onto the leather! And depending on what pen I’m using that day, the pen clip on the pen may or may not fit in the pen loop.

So that’s my current set up. Much like the first two months of using the ZLYC narrow traveler’s notebook, I can’t believe how time has just flown while using this size.
