Because of my obsessively organized nature, I absolutely LOVE boxes - pretty, fabric covered boxes, little wooden boxes, handsome leather boxes. Sometimes I buy boxes and then have to think of something to put in them.
You'd be surprised the things you can put in a nice little box: spare keys, paperclips, all those chargers and cords that amass, letters and pictures from kids, etc.
I also love notebooks. Pretty fabric covered notebooks, handsome leather notebooks.
Now, oddly enough, I am not a journal writer.
So I use my lovely little notebooks for mundane things like grocery lists and phone messages.
But that makes the little minutiae of life so much more pleasant.
At any rate, I love this notebook so much!
