I love me a good compendium or folio, and I’ve bought many in the last year.
I was using old diary covers for my notebooks, but wanted something a bit more appropriate.
A few years ago I managed to get an A4 folio from ebay, and then nothing. No one was selling them. And then, all of a sudden, everyone has them. I’ve been buying up Lilly Pulitzer agenda folios, and started buying from Aliexpress. I finally managed to find a red one.
It’s not full red red, but a toned down red with grey on the inside.
I’ve bought so many this year alone. Pinks, blues, greens, they’re fantastic for writing notebooks, which I use, and I can fit paperwork, pens, paperclips and bull clips, along with anything else needed for writing that current book or series.
I have one for each name, Tiara King (pink), T. K. Wrathbone (green) and L.J. Diva, red, of course.
Unfortunately an A4 folder for spare planner paper doesn’t fit unless the corners dig into the material, so it has to go into the back pocket. I’ll have to track down a smaller alternative for my paper.
What have you guys been buying up on these days? Any addictions, obsessions, collections?
