10 things to do with your notebook stash! (Contest + Open Contests!)
Sunday, August 28th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Claire Reed Warren!

If you’re anything like me, you have a stash of notebooks sitting in a drawer or on a shelf that you haven’t used and have probably forgotten that you even own. I get notebooks from family members because they know I hoard paper products and office supplies. I’ve never been able to pass by the $1 aisle at Target and not pick up some cute notebook. And yes, I do use some of them. Every purse I own has a notebook stashed inside for times when story ideas hit, but I still have sooooo many sitting around. The kids know this and hit me up for sketchbooks all the time. I love being their favorite “store”—but those requests don’t make a dent in my stash. The picture above is of notebooks I had stuffed into the bottom of my inbox tray!

So, I thought it might be fun to create a list of ways to use up my stash and give those lonely notebooks a purpose!

  1. ๐ŸŽ Birth dates and gift lists
  2. ๐Ÿคถ Christmas lists
  3. ๐Ÿ’ป Computer app passwords
  4. โœจ Happy thoughts and sayings
  5. โšฐ๏ธ List to help family sort your stuff when you die, also who gets what!
  6. ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ Blog ideas

  8. ๐ŸŽจย Craft/Art project ideas
  9. ๐Ÿ“š Story ideas
  10. ๐Ÿ—’๏ธ To Do lists

Wow, that made me think. Now, I’m going to hit up my daughter for labels for my notebooks!
