This is the one I have right now, works so well for me!

u/biggoldie · 5 pointsr/psychotherapy

I love both of these!

u/KrozFan · 5 pointsr/getdisciplined

I don't do this as regularly as I should but in theory this is my system:

I use a physical goal tracker/planner that I fill out every night. I used to use the one put out by Zig Ziglar but this year I'm using Panda Planner. So every night I'd fill out the planner for the day and I'd also journal. I wouldn't do anything too special with journaling I would just write down stuff that happened that day.

Every Sunday night is a weekly review. This is part of my Getting Things Done routine and has more to do with that than anything else. I'd also take some time to decide which goals I wanted to focus on during the next week and put them in my goal planner.

The first Sunday of every month I do a monthly review. This is mostly geared towards goals. I would pull out my list of the goals for the year and write down progress I made.

I also did an annual review two years ago where I went over a bunch of my journal entries and a deeper goals review. I didn't do one last year because I was on vacation and just didn't do it when I got back. The last month has been crazy for me so I haven't done one this year either.

The daily goal tracking doesn't take very long. If I remember correctly the people at Ziglar says the average person spends eight minutes in their planner per day. Journaling changes wildly from day to day. Some days nothing happens, some days a lot happens. For my weekly review I block off an hour but I would say it never takes me that long. Part of that is because I really try to keep up to date on my GTD stuff throughout the week. It's probably the same with my monthly review.

scribbles that matter on amazon is only $20! the pages are white and 160gsm. It's the same thickness as archer and olive, but there's free shipping through prime and $10 cheaper! highly recommend, i love mine. if you get it from a different website, make sure you get the pro version, since that's the one with the thick pages

u/Ecnot · 5 pointsr/bulletjournal

I can definitely recommend Scribbles That Matter! They ghost a little bit too, but not as bad as the Leuchtturm. I love the cover with doodles on it, but they have plain covers too :)

  • Flint Shoelaces
  • Power Bank (I've got this one and I'm happy with it)
  • Dashcam. Not typically considered a 'tactical' object but boy can they come in handy. Probably above your price point though. Ask around on /r/dashcam if the idea seems promising.
  • Something like this to organize all the prepper stuff he already has.
  • Compact keyholder
  • Ballistic-grade Sunglasses
  • Freeze dried food?
u/InsertAnyTree · 4 pointsr/bujo

I'd highly recommend the size B5 if you want something bigger than A5, it's not quite as big as A4. Some brands which sell B5 in dot grid are scribbles that matter (also highly recommend) and I've seen moleskin ones too!

Okay, I bought a blank bullet journal (just dotted) and that was a fail. BUT THEN I bought this one that has pretty printed non-dated week and month pages and it's awesome! I love it. Sorry for formatting I'm on my phone.

u/HeartofMarshmallow · 3 pointsr/xxketo

Organize harder! More compartments! More containers! Put a compartment into a container!

(This is something that I said to my mom when she was drooling over a Container Store catalog one day.) :D

/u/jahinfrance, there are a few good planners out there that aren't just "To Do Lists" and dates. I haven't used this one, but I've heard good things from others. Not sure what motivates you, but there are a bunch of different types of the same concept. (Not sure if this particular brand is too cheesy for your tastes, but I like that they have different inserts for different goals.)

u/AuroraEndante · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

I want to see this too!!

My own ring is a smidge too big, and I'm almost afraid to get it resized since it's white topaz and not a fancy cut diamond. I bought a pack of ring adjusters - basically a plastic mini-slinky to loop around the ring. They've been a huge help!

u/itsyrdestiny · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

I really like this idea. I actually just purchased a Scribbles That Matter Bullet Planner because I've found that I have less time to spend on my bullet journal lately. It's still open ended in terms of designing pages and decorating spreads, just with a bit more structure, and I'm really excited to see how it works out!

u/petulent_sweatpotato · 3 pointsr/notebooks

it doesn’t fire in all cylinders you want but worth a suggestion. tekukor b6. dot grid unfortunately and there is some ghosting i’m afraid with the tomoe river paper.

u/WanboNI · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal


Scribbles that Matter Pro

Are supposed be good for no ghosting....120gsm on the Lemome and 100gsm on the STM (I think)

The STM will be my next/first proper dotted Journal as it has an index and numbered pages......shame the Lemome doesn't as I really like it's spine pen loop and has thicker paper and it's £6 cheaper

u/sotefikja · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Scribbles That Matter. $19 on amazon, amazing quality: No bleeding, very little ghosting, fountain pen and watercolor friendly. Pre-numbered, included index and key. And the paper is actually 115g now (the description says 100).

u/senorbiloba · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

I really like the Scribbles That Matter brand on amazon, the kind without dumb glyphs embossed on the cover. Roughly $20, good paper thickness, nice colors, pen holder.

I tried the Leuchturm once, but found the pages to be too thin, and missed the pen loop.

u/RedcarUK · 3 pointsr/fountainpens

Absolutely! Good quality paper doesn't need to be horrendously expensive.

For example, I search out 90gsm optik paper and I've found it in Oxford Black n' Red notebooks.

They're fabulous for fountain pens and excellent value for money.

u/pelicangrenade · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

I've never had this happen to my Lemome, but I did see similar pictures in the reviews on Amazon. From what I read, their customer service is pretty good so if you contact them with photos they might be nice enough to send you a replacement.

If you're looking for alternatives, I think the Scribbles That Matter journal is similar (160gsm, $21), but it has numbered pages and a printed key and index pages, and is a bit more expensive than the Lemome. Someone in this sub posted yesterday about Michael's new $10 120gsm dotted journal that looks like it could be similar. (The Leuchtterms are beautiful but the pages are so thin and ghosting drives me crazy.)

u/ChevySmallBlock350 · 2 pointsr/EDC

Here's the one I got. Got a couple holders for cards and could def store some cash. It also has a little loop that fits the space pen great. Fits in all my back pockets pretty well.

Quality is pretty great considering the price, I'd say. The cover of mine has a bit of wear, but I sit on it and toss it around all the time. I'd def recommend this one.

u/HamLuke · 2 pointsr/EDC

Maxpedition Organizers:

  • Extra Small
  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Extra Large

    There are tons of videos on YouTube showcasing size and items most people like to put in them. This would be worth looking into. Some other reputable brands I have seen are Vanquest and Condor. Personally, I use the EDC organizer from Maxpedition in my 5.11 Rush 12 backpack. I highly recommend it.
u/TechGeek03 · 2 pointsr/bujo

These two YT videos were really helpful in my decision making:

The hosts did a really good job of breaking down the assessment into requirements and showing off each type of notebook. I ended up going with a "Scribbles That Matter A5 Pro" notebook. (

u/NotARiver · 2 pointsr/loseit

Whoa, more details on the soup please!

Also, amazon has little ring things you can wrap around the base to avoid getting them resized. Like this:

u/T3a8erry · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

This is what I use, the paper is great, it's dotted, and there is a scribble page in the back so make sure you don't have bleeding or smearing

u/Dejena · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

You've gotten excellent advice on inks, and some on notebooks. You mentioned being overwhelmed by the choices, but wanting a sturdy notebook that can handle fountain pen ink. There are a few choices mentioned in here, but perhaps I can help summarize this. Key thing you will want is a high gsm (Grams per Square Meter), since a high gsm means thicker paper.

  • Red and Black: 96 sheets, standard ruling, 90gsm, casebound, hardcover. Personally, no experience with this, but I've heard there's no bleed through with fountain pens.

  • Seven Seas "WRITER" A5 Journal: 240 sheets, ruling is 7mm, 52 gsm Tomoe River paper, thread-bound for binding, cover is impregnated cloth (but you can buy a leather cover). Also no experience with this either.

  • Leuchtturm1917 Medium Size Hardcover A5 Notebook: 125 sheets, ruling can be either lined/graph/dot grid, 70 gsm, thread-bound, hardcover with some sort of leather covering. I've been using these since 2013, and in my first notebook, my handwriting hasn't changed from the day I had written in it with Diamine Ancient Copper. You would still want sturdier ink than what I had used. The paper is cream colored, and smooth. Bleed through is rare.

  • Rhodia Webnotebook A5: 80 sheets, ruling can be either lined/graph/dot grid, 90 gsm, thread bound, leatherette hard cover. I've always enjoyed Rhodia paper, and while I haven't used this particular product, the paper is much smoother than the Leuchtturm1917, and there's less ghosting. The paper also appears whiter to me than the Leuchtturm1917.

  • Rhodia Goalbook A5: 112 sheets, ruling is dot grid, 90gsm, thread bound, leatherette hard cover. Throwing this in the options list, since you get a few more sheets. Also wanted to point out that the cover appears to be flexible.

  • Scribbles That Matter, Pro: 100 sheets approx, ruling is dot grid, 100gsm, thread bound, vegan leather hard cover. The sheets are smooth, and a bit brighter than the Leuchtturm1917, but a bit more ivory than the Rhodia. Great paper, and the cover feels more durable and pleasant than the L1917. With fountain pens, I have yet to bleed through this paper, and the ghosting (seeing what is written on the other side of the sheet) is very minimal. If I push you towards any notebook, it'll be this one. It also comes with a penloop that is not useless, unlike the L1917.

  • Lemome Thick Classic Notebook with Pen Loop A5: 90 sheets, ruling is either dot grid or lined, 90 sheets, 125 gsm, thread bound, leatherette cover. Just got this the other day, and the pages are thick and smooth so far. No bleed through or ghosting with fountain pen ink yet.

  • Lemome Hardcover A5 with Pen Holder: 92 sheets, ruling is dot grid, 100g, thread bound, leather hardcover. Just an option to put in here, it has a pen loop, and the paper seems to be slightly less thick than the prior Lemome notebook.

    Wishing you and your daughter the best during these hard times.
u/iamnotbroken · 2 pointsr/autism

Can't think of any videos, but the girls at work use these.

You could pull half out depending.

u/nineran · 2 pointsr/bujo

Have you seen the Scribbles That Matter Bullet Planner?

I’ll see if I can find a link. It was my plan if I found I couldn’t keep up with bujo at law school, but I find that I like my bujo even more now.

Personally I find the passion planner too claustrophobic but they are super popular. I have to say though that I’m excited to try their new daily version. The hibonachi cousin is pretty awesome too.

Edit: scribbles that matter bullet planner

u/WarSport223 · 2 pointsr/preppers

I think your best bet is to get whatever bag you want and then fill it with smaller pouches & organizers.

This in particular looks amazing & I’m going to get it for a new bag I just got:

Hynes Eagle Universal Backpack Insert Organizer Travel Bag Slip Gadget Organization Kit Military Green

As for organizers & pouches, Maxpedition is one of my favorite brands:
Maxpedition Gear Beefy Pocket Organizer, Black

Overall, I think you’ll find it much easier to carry multiple little pouches / bags / organizers inside of your main bag.

That way it gives you the ability to do what you want, which is carry whatever bag you want but still be organized.

u/OwlDistracted · 2 pointsr/hobonichi

US Amazon still has it here:

The Canadian Amazon only had one listed for resale at over CA$200+

Fair warning, buying from Amazon is kind of hit or miss on whether or not you get the extras.

u/Tamagu_ · 2 pointsr/notebooks

Dingbats sells 100gsm paper with page numbers which are fountain pen friendly!
Scribbles that Matter also have 100gsm, fountain pen friendly paper that also have page numbers. Scribbles that Matters has different cover types, which range from your generic solid colours to “creative” ones with little doodles imprinted into the covers as well.

u/eviltwinn2 · 2 pointsr/midori

I bought this one and LOVE IT!! It came with 2 notebooks, a pen clip, travel stickers, a clear pouch for cards, papers, and whatnot that has a zipper pouch side. Its already set up with a spare elastic. I bought it for $19 USD but it was also on prime then. The leather is nice and really thick. If you want pictures look at the reviews. They are very accurate.

Some people complain about scuffs in the leather but I saw a tutorial (can't find it now) where you rub the scuff with your finger in different directions - up, down, left, right - and it will clear it up. (Like a konami code for leather.) Mine arrived scuff free but has gotten a few threw daily use. This trick worked every time.

u/xnavyguy · 2 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

I don't have any mech mods but I do have a 100W Sigelei, a 20W Istick, MVP 2 and a few other cheaper mods....I'm using the Maxpedition Beefy and it's an AMAZING bag.

Has plenty of Velcro holders for my juices, batteries, mods, etc...a large internal zip pocket, outside Velcro pocket and an internal sleeve type pocket. Best price I found it for was on Amazon [CLICK HERE] (

Hope this helps

u/pekalicious · 2 pointsr/bujo

For what it's worth, I think the LT1917 has become a standard because the original Bullet Journal web page sells them under their brand.

As mentioned here, LT1917 is 80gsm, which is relatively thin and makes a lot of pens bleed through and ghost. For more information about bleeding, ghosting, and general comparison between notebooks I recommend watching Which Notebook is the Best for Bullet Journaling?! (skip to 11:00 to see the comparison chart). I prefer Scribbles That Matter which is thicker (100gsm) and feels smoother to write on. My next purchase will probably be a Midori with 120gsm or a Rhodia to try them out.

One of the core principals of Bullet Journalism is that there are no hard rules. While it comes with some guidelines, you are free to use it however you see fit. Which means that there are no predefined pages. So for the most part you are going to be drawing the layouts. And this is why a Dotted paper helps because you can use the dots to draw your own layouts. You can checkout Pinterest for inspiration. The community uses the term "spreads" to signify two-page layouts used for all sorts of things.

As for pens, many recommend the Sakura Pigma Micron for good reason. While I use them for more "serious" work, when it comes to EDC I would highly recommend the Muji 0.38mm Fine Point Gel Pens. Unlike the Microns, they are not felt tip (which is why I wouldn't use them for EDC) but very sharp ball point pen with great consistency. A lot of people swear by the Pilot G2 0.38mm Ultra Fine Point but personally I wasn't pleased with them.

Finally, regarding the things you want to track, as I mentioned earlier, you can simply define the layouts of each page and track whatever you wish. A lot of the spreads you see from the community are really intricate. You can find a variety of them from very crazy daily layouts to minimal ones. It's all up to you.

Having said that, if drawing your own layouts daily seems like a lot of work (a lot of people actually spend a few hours planning them beforehand), then you might want to consider a more traditional Planner instead. As mentioned ITT, the Nomadic Planner has good paper (125gsm), weekly and monthly pages as well as lined and blanks for notes and the rest.

There is a whole universe of things to consider (and I'm more than happy to geek out about it), but I'd say just start with whatever. Don't think about it too much. Most of the negatives are personal, so while LT1917 doesn't work for some, it might for you. You'll figure things out as you go.

u/Verun · 2 pointsr/pens

Diy field notes in this.

I use 24lb copy paper and cardstock or recycled kraft paper. I print my own dot grid paper, cut jt to size, punch some holes and shove staples in or saddle stitch my own notebook. Pen usually sticks in the middle gap of the leather, and I carry a little template for straight edges. Eventually I plan on moving my bullet journal to this setup after I finish my current pocket leuchtturm.

u/lovelillov · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

Sounds like then she doesn't need anything too thick. Anything from 80 gsm to 100 gsm should be fine.

I'd recommend this dotted journal: Scribbles That Matter.

u/armchairracer · 2 pointsr/VEDC

Maybe a Maxpedition pocket organizer. They have a lot of internal loops and straps for organizing the small stuff. MX266B-BRK Beefy Pocket

u/Ktrieu84 · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Have you tried those ring snuggles?

I have a friend whose ring was getting loose because she was losing weight but didn't want to permanently resize it just yet so she uses these.

Thanks for the video, Doug. Have you thought about getting a Hobonichi Cousin, which is a little larger A5 size? You can get it directly from Hobonichi in Japan, or from Amazon. I really like my Cousin.

This is the planner I use, happy planner. they are pretty decorative and can be cluttered for some. I know staples has something that are much more similar in looks to yours pictured.

The nice thing is that they are spiral-bound so it could easily be unbound and rebound with tougher covers.

u/Dradae · 1 pointr/bulletjournal

Scribbles That Matter has a notebook with heavy 160 gms paper nowadays, same weight as the Olive & Archer books. Might be worth a try.

u/VexingVendibles · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm a big advocate of planners and to do lists and goals. So I have a notebook dedicated to random thoughts/to do lists. I also have a Create 365 planner for my schedule for work, appointments, dates, birthdays, daily to do lists, goals for the week, goals for the month, etc. It helps keep my days from being incredibly overwhelming and let's me know the last time I did certain things. Not just work related, but in my personal life, too.

I recommend the app UFYH(Unfuck your Habitat) or the tumblr site. Those are more for like... Household organization/cleaning/etc. It's been inspiring and has a lot of good ideas for keeping yourself from looking at it and going "IT'S TOO MUCH!"

I like this in my kitchen and on my desk. I like everything having a certain place, y'know. Keeps things from getting too lost all the time. ;)

When it comes to your self esteem and self confidence, I recommend taking up a hobby! Learning something new can make you feel better about yourself, keep yourself entertained, and if you ever want to turn your brain off to what's going on, just go ahead and start looking in to something new. Develop a new skill.

Also, journaling. Even if you're just writing a sentence regarding something positive or small that made you happy with life or yourself, think about remembering it. Or the app Happier! I love that app.

And in regards to making you happy, here's a man proposing to his wife after a cochlear implant. I thought this was way too sweet to not share.

It sounds like the Panda Planner weekly would be perfect for you. It's A4, all in English. The downside is it's undated.

u/themapoe · 1 pointr/EngineeringStudents

Honestly the key to success in engineering is a verticle weekly planner.

u/SaoilsinnSuz · 1 pointr/productivity

I'm gonna throw this out there, but try a Panda Planner weekly. Like you, I'm an ex-bullet-journaler, and this physical planner has solved all my problems. It's undated, but goes a whole year so you can get it whenever. I love literally everything about it: the weekly review, the monthly habit, the lists functions, the gratitude, the Top 3 priorities... If you are thinking of digital this isn't for you, but the last two months have been nothing short of amazing for me using this planner.

u/aethordad · 1 pointr/EDC
