I keep a Junkin’ Journal that keeps me organized – – ideas, shopping lists, measurements, dates of auctions, dates of town-wide yard sales, addresses of thrift stores located in new cities I’m going to visit. My preferred journal (I have several going at all times) is a Leuchtturm 1917 in an A5 size with dotted pages. I’m a bit of a stationery snob.
So, for example – I printed out a picture of a desk that I am working on – I used a tape runner to fix it into my journal, and now I can write in measurements, make decisions about design, sketch out ideas. It’s a perfect tool to help me save time – to devote to more projects!
I can also keep track of my collections. I want to collect a full set of “Fairlane” by Steubenville Potteries – so I’m tracking my finds in my Junkin’ Journal:
