Ways to fill an empty notebook

Hello everyone,
We all know a person or are the people who collect pretty notebooks and never really use them. We just hoard notebooks. So I thought I’d give you all a list of ways to fill a notebook.


This is the most obvious one, hence why I put it at the top of the list. This one takes a lot of motivation and I actually kept a journal for seven months! Its from January 2017 to July 2017 and if I can do it, You definitely can!


If you are a photo-fanatic than this one will be perfect for you. Just get a notebook with lined paper or plain paper and stick pictures and insert a line of what the memory is. I have yet to try this so I can’t wait until I can start doing this.

To Do Book

I’ve currently got a to do book and let me tell you this…. It’s a life saver! I’m not one to bullet journal as it takes way to much time, so a simple to do book is perfect.

A Sentence A Day

Ever bought a tiny notebook and never knew what to do with it? Than write a sentence a day on a page. I’m going to do this on the first day back to school (i’m going into year 11) and I hope to do it until I
finish school. This is so than I can read how the last year of secondary went in one paragraph. (That’s essentially what it becomes).

Doodle Book

Having a doodle book is perfect for those who are bored or who are into art. Doodling can be therapeutic so I recommend this. Maybe try drawing something every week that reflects your mood for that moment of time. If you are not someone who likes to write but loves collecting notebooks, you should try out doodling.


Learning a Language

What a great excuse to start a new journey! If you ever wanted to learn a new language,
choose your favourite notebook and write down vocabulary and phrases. Choosing your favourite notebook will motivate you to learn a new language and to use the notebook in the first place.

So I hope you all enjoyed this post. Are you a notebook hoarder? I would love to know because I feel like i’m the only one, haha.
