For 20 months or so I’ve been carrying the Quad Field Notes Leather Notebook Cover from Old Church Works and the entire time I’ve had it filled with four notebooks with different uses.
As much as I like it, it’s probably time for a change.
The cover has held up well, despite a couple issues, but that’s fodder for a different post.
The notebooks are a food journal, a random notes book, a 10 ideas book, and a book “Bible” for one of the projects I’ve been working on. (Sort of.)
The main issue is that, over time, I’ve not only stopped using three of the four notebooks, but I also feel I’m not getting a good sense of how durable the different notebooks are in the pocket when they are protected by a thick leather cover.
Because of that, I’ve decided that it’s time to shed at least two notebooks (the 10 ideas and the book Bible), and start pocket carrying the food journal and the random notes notebook.
I’ve done something like this in the past and found I got more use out of the random notes notebook than I am now.
However I use them, it will definitely lighten my everyday carry. But that’s also part of a future review.
