Pocket, Purse or Portfolio?

Stephanie

Our blogger friend and regular Rhodia snapper Margaret Mendel is hanging out in France for 15 days eating real French bread with butter and jam – (Just please tell me that’s not a mini jar of Smuckers!) She mentioned how the Bloc Rhodia N° 11 fits perfectly in her back pocket and it prompted me to wonder…. with the plethora of sizes and shapes of available Rhodia products, which size goes with you everywhere, and how do you carry it? I only carry a bag on rare occasions and even then I’m not very organized. My tablets and journals tend to migrate towards the bottom of the bag and always elicits a “Wait a sec, I’ve got some paper right here!” which is often followed by my dumping the contents of my bag onto the floor. Bag is typically some sort of mini-backpack, or my gently used (for $20) Timbuk 2 Metro bag in orange and teal.

My real problem is picking only one or two tablets for the road….

  1. I carry a no.12 Pad Holder (with grid pad) with me everywhere, either in my pants, inside jacket, or shirt pocket. I find it helps to keep my thoughts organized – at the end of the day, I just check to see if I’ve missed anything; or I can just make a mental note to check my notebook when something comes up! The grid design also makes it easy to make pro|con or other lists. Very useful, and the leather design is wonderful.

    The one thing that Rhodia doesn’t make, much to my chagrin, is no.11 or no.12 french ruled pads. Even if it didn’t have the margin divider, that would be fine.

  3. I am never without the side staple-bound Pocket Notebook (3″ high x 4.75″ wide. It’s available in packets of 3, ruled or graph, and it’s about $7 for a 3-pack. And the cover wears beautifully.

  5. While I love my Reverse, I have recently become enamored of the smaller LeCarre for precisely the portability factor…It fits in all my bag options, not just the backpack.

    In the backpack, I tuck whatever notebook I am taking into the empty laptop sleeve–keeps it flat and out of harm’s way. In most other bags, the notebook gets sandwiched between the omnipresent book and the side of the bag.
