Need a mechanical pencil? For reasons that aren’t rational, I don’t just about every thing there is to know about mechanical pencils… and the best for typical daily use is the Autopilot. No doubt. Get yours here.
I’ve used and loved Moleskine notebooks for years, but have always been frustrated by their lack of perforated pages. I don’t treat notebooks like some kind of art safe – I use them as tools… and so fairly often, I like to rip a page out and tack it on my bulletin board. If you do this too many times to a Moleskine, your whole damned $20 notebook falls apart. Screw that.
Enter Ecosystem notebooks. They are like Moleskines, only better. Every single page is perforated. They are available in both hard and soft cover and a number of different paper configurations. You can build your own here or buy them for fairly cheap here. You’ll never buy another Moleskine again.
