It will be about 12 notebooks for a year. It will cost me about USD40 (SGD$50.00) a year if I use Field Notes Original 3-pack.
For 2015, I am saving up for some big project coming my way;
I decided to cut down on spending $$$ on notebooks (and fountain pens).
1 method is to maximise the use of my notebook - to use all the available spaces if possible.
My Current EDC notebook is....
A MujiA6 notebook, which I started using it on 10 Dec 2014.
As of today (04 Feb 2015), I'm now down with the last few pages - I'm glad to have lengthen the lifespan of my notebooks.
Lengthening the lifespan means:
- cost saving
- tree saving
- storage saving
How I do it?
One way of doing so is, to write less.
But of course, that's IMPOSSIBLE, at least for me.
Another way I'm doing it is to divide one page into 3 columns.
In order to create 3 columns, my writing needs to be small. Therefore, I use a EF / F nib fountain pen to do the writing. My current EDC pen is a Sailor Candy fountain pen.
I will usually finish 1 column before writing the 2nd or 3rd column. It wasn't easy at first, but after a while of practicing it, I got use to it eventually.
If you have any other methods on maximising your notebook, you can share them on my comments, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
