“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.”

Albert Einstein

Career Mom Community recently released Deluxe Notebooks for purchase through the Career Mom Community Shop.  Notebooks are a great tool to help working mothers to live a more organized and stress-free life.  There are also some fun and fabulous ways to use the beautifully designed Career Mom Community Notebooks that I will discuss later in the blog.

About the Notebooks

The interior of each notebook is the same.  The Pray. Plan. Prosper. Repeat Deluxe Notebook comes in a blush pink color with gold lettering.  The J.O.T Journal of Thoughts Deluxe Notebook comes in black with gold lettering.  The faux leather cover has a smooth and luxurious feel.  The interior of each notebook includes card slots, a double tassel page divider, and a slip pocket on the back interior panel. 

Each notebook comes with a matching pen that can be stored in the double pen loop.  The double pen loop will keep the notebook securely closed.

Endless Possiblities

The possibilities are endless! Let’s take mind mapping and brain dumping for example.  You can learn more about what a Brain Dump is in this VIDEO.  A mind map is a creative way to brainstorm information.  You can also identify how different tasks or scenarios are interconnected. To begin a mind map, start with a central focal point and create your branches to highlight sub-topics and ideas.  You can leverage a page or two from your notebook to create the mind map.

Now that my kids are getting older, I love to journal their childhood memories.  Journaling in durable notebooks also creates amazing keepsakes that document our lives for generations to come.
