12 things to do with a notebook

I have a little obsession with notebooks you can say. For my birthday I had gotten a hema-gift card, a Dutch store where you can by really nice notebooks. So guess what I did? Yep, I bought some notebooks. What I do with them? Here are 12 things you can do with a notebook.

1. Travel journal: I have been doing this for quite some time now. Writing down things about the trip, and collecting tickets, papers and small souvenirs.
2. Scrapbook: All you need for this is, a notebook (of course), old magazines/photo's, a pair of scissors and glue. Doing this on a Sunday morning with a warm cup of tea is the best morning you can have. No stress...
3. Herbarium: Collecting flowers from anywhere, drying them gently and saving them in a notebook.
4. Planning: Planning your holiday plans, daily things as to do lists. Just planning.
5. Any journal: Travel, food, reviews (like movies & books) & collecting journals (herbarium, postcards, wrapping paper & anything creative).
6. Write down your dreams: As soon as you wake up, write down your recent dreams. And you'll get trained in remembering them. Don't do it too often tho, it's not always fun to remember everything ;)

7. Bucket lists: Life, travel, year, summer or anything like those.
8. Notes and doodles: I did this in my planner in first class. It was full of doodles and random notes. Really fun to look over after a long time. I did yesterday, and surely my drawing skills have gotten better...
9. Photo's: Polaroid photo's like some of my friends have. Or print out your favourites, keep them close. So you always have something to look at, that makes you happy.
10. Conversations: Random conversations, of random people. If you start to concentrate on other conversations, it can be really fun to write them down. Make sure you don't get catch tho ;)
11. Lists: To do lists, favourite lists, any lists.
12. Recipes: A recipe notebook, really handy to keep your favourite recipes by hand. I case you need them, Or you can just save them on your phone, but a notebook is way more fun.

And so I fill my notebooks, tho I still have many cute blank notebooks, waiting for my (ugly) handwriting to fill their souls. (that sounds só weird)...
Hope you have a nice day y'all!


  1. Ik vind het ook zo leuk om tijdens vakanties een boekje bij te houden. :)

    1. Jaaaa, ik kwam laatst een boekje tegen van 3 jaar geleden! Zo leuk om terug te lezen!

  2. Omg dat bovenste notitieboekje is zo cutee (en alle andere ook trouwens). Ik heb de laatste tijd ook een enorme obsessie met notebooks. Heb er echt te veel die leeg zijn. :') Ik ben nu ook bezig met een travel journal, dus ik verzamel alle folders, tickets en andere troep. ;)

    1. Haha, dat heb ik nu ook! Alleen begint de troep een grotere proportie aan te nemen als mijn collectie boekjes... #thestruggle


I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
