Recycled cardstock pocket notebook

It’s no secret that if I got to choose the way I die I wouldn’t mind being buried alive by a mountain of notebooks, and I don’t think it’s possible to own too many.

I found this adorable notebook from the dozi Etsy shop, and I’m using it to jot down phone messages and grocery lists in the kitchen. It’s the perfect size, not too small, not too big, and it fits in my back pocket in a pinch. I could take notes on my iPhone, but I find that so unsatisfying.
