1) Book Reviews:
Keep notes so you have them when you go to do your review. You can even print a small picture of the cover, cut it and glue it in.
2) Travel Journal:
Save ticket stubs, napkins and such, add pics from your phone. Just tape or glue them in and add notes about the places and people you saw.
List movies you want to see, books you want to read, products you want to try, pieces of clothing you wish you had in your wardrobe, or projects you are going to work on. Include a shopping list of things you need for said projects. The next time you are at the book store, craft store or clothing store you don’t wonder what it was you needed to get the next time you went to the book store, clothing store or craft store.
4) Create a Family Recipe Book.
Write everyone’s favorite recipes in one, or cut and glue them. Whatever works for you. Make multiples and give them to your kids as a gift when they move out so they can make Mom's favorite casserole and invite you over for dinner.
5) My Romance:
Document date night, include selfies with your sig other over the years, fun to look back on. Include ideas for future date night.
6) Bible and/or Spiritual Journal:
Include quotes from scripture or your spiritual leader. Cut out things that mean something to you, whether it’s the lyrics to your favorite worship song, quotes from the Dali Lama, or leaves you passed on a nature hike. Include prayer lists. Draw, stamp or use stickers to make it pretty. Create something you look forward to spending time with to encourage spiritual time in your life, whatever that looks like to you.
7) To Do Lists:
When you think of something on the fly just jot down all in one place. Help rein in your crazy list of what needs to be done so it doesn’t wake you up at night.
8) Sketch or Doodle Book:
Adult coloring books are all the rage, why not create your own.
9) Health Journal:
Track your fitness progress, measurements, diet, anxiety, depression, sleep patterns, sugar levels, whatever it is that you are “watching”. Keep it all in one place so you can see your progress and observe any patterns.
10) Guest Book/Journal:
If you have a family cabin, RV, B&B whatever. A place people come, a blank notebook on the table is an amazing legacy. We stayed in a cabin last year that had a stack of three. They had been encouraging their guests to write one another for years. I got up wary one morning and read some with my coffee. It was wonderful to hear from previous people who had stayed, tell me about great things to see, local restaurants to eat at or avoid. How the trip was relaxing them, how they were reconnecting with a spouse, all sorts of things. Then we left a note for the next guests.
