the datebook cozy by jill bliss
Face it. In all of our oversize totes/backpacks/messenger carriers, we each have a little book that multifunctions as a planner, scribbler, organizer, you name it. In it we stash phone numbers, receipts, tickets, business cards. Pens, post-it notes, random paraphernalia. You can't live without it, and neither can I. So why not buy one that's eye-catching and functional at the same time? Instead of the usual blah yearly planner, pick something funky like this datebook. The notebook is $15, the cover(cozy) costs only $24 (if you've ever considered Franklin-Covey you'll know how fantastic this price is). And you can shuffle through lots of design. Me? I love the felt pockets -- stash and go.
