“My name is Kat and I’m addicted to buying journals and notebooks.”
I couldn’t stop at one. Nope. I had to have 3 pictures of my journals and notebooks, all unused. When I saw this week’s – Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 6- Unused these journals and notebooks didn’t come to mind. I spent a few days looking around different rooms and considering this item or that. During that same time, I had opened the drawer where these are kept in search of just the right journal to use for my first foray into bullet journaling—- and none of them were what I was looking for.
I did purchase a Moleskine journal and that lucky baby never made it into the drawer of doom where my obsession lays hidden. I wish I was kidding but I’m not. It’s an addiction- one that I’ve passed onto to Kris. If you lose either of us in Target, just head over to the notebook aisle. We will be there poring over their selection, comparing notes on which ones we like or dislike. There’s just something about the feel of a fresh new journal with all those clean unspoiled pages. So much potential.
These pictures are only a portion of my unused journals. I take some comfort in the knowledge that I’m not the only one who suffers from this affliction. I’ve come across other writers who seem to have the same weakness.
How about you? Are you the secret hoarder or compulsive buyer of something that goes unused? I’m sure I’m not the only one!
