When you have a mind like I have which is interested in everything, having it all in one place is a life-changer. That doesn't mean I don't have file folders with articles torn from magazines and reference photos on my computer for future paintings, it just means that the immediate post-it jottings have a home with an address and they are not on little squares which can be lost to the ether on a whim.
Now, that zippered black book is filled with years of notes. I like it that way. What is wearing on me is transporting it back and forth to work because I need said notes and the calendar and the address book in both places. I do not want to duplicate it - God forbid! What I have done, though, is get a trim little red binder which holds just my calendar, address book and two tabbed sections of plain notepaper for personal and work notes. Personal is in the #1 tab, naturally.
I love it - it even slips in my purse. It is a fraction of a pound. I can swing said purse onto my shoulder without pulling it out of the socket. I have duplicated nothing.
I love downsizing.
