NaBloPoMo - What Balance?

Prompts are back! I'm thinking that there won't be prompts on weekends!

How do you balance your children, relationship, and work life?

Children - Don't have any.
Relationship - NOPE!
Work - It's pretty much the only thing I do.

Since my life is rather boring... well just void of children and relationships, I'm going to talk to you about organisers. As you already know, I'm a little bit of a stationery-phile... OKAY... A COMPLETE STATIONERY-PHILE!

Every year, around this time I start thinking about purchasing an organiser for next year, for the last couple of years it's been a Moleskine (2009 - Day to a page, 2010 - Weekly notebook, 2011 - Day to a page) Moleskines are awesome! I love everything about them, but I think it's time to try something new. In September I pre-ordered the 2012 Frankie Magazine Diary. It's so beautiful, and I kind of don't want to ruin it with my random scribbles... I always seem to have this problem with new notebooks and journals.
Another problem I have, is at the beginning of the year I use my organiser, but as the year moves on, I use it less and less until it is completely empty for months and months! This was a problem I had with the Day to a page Moleskines. That's why I moved to a weekly notebook Moleskine, but then I found myself running out of room! I just can't win :(

I would love to have a Filofax, but they are so expensive, and I would get bored of the same look every year... and there are so many choices! What size? What colour?

I actually post a similar thing to this last year... whether to choose a Moleskine or a Filofax. I will probably get a Moleskine Weekly Notebook, and then try and be even more anti-social than I was in 2010 :)

Scrap that! I have found the organiser I want! It's a Moleskine, it's Weekly Notebook... and it's YELLOW!
It's freaking Pac-Man! I just ordered it. It's coming from Italy so it will take awhile, but I don't need it until 2012. And it was only $20 from Fishpond. Awesome! Can't freaking wait. I might use my Frankie Diary for Badgers In Top Hats or something.

I know I didn't really answer the prompt question... but it is a Prompt to get use inspired... and it worked didn't it :)

  1. I am very much the same as you when it comes to the whole organiser/diary thang - I started looking about a month ago and cant spend hours oogling over stationary for next year, i find soemthing 'perfect' then use it a few months and get over it lol.. going to head up to Typo in harbour town this week and have a look :D

  2. I am so the same! I love moleskine & I have a filofax, but i'm too scared to use my filofax cause it cost me $100. Silly, I know. I've already got a small 2011 moleskine to keep in my handbag, and I've ordered in a MiGoals Diary.
