It seems like we all have that small stash of notebooks that we don’t know what to do with. Big or small, it’s easy to scoop up and buy all of those adorable designs we see in the stores. But instead of just hoarding them, what can we do with this? Well, below, you’ll find 15 different ways to transform that hidden pile into something useful!
1. Dream Diary
Turn that blank notebook into a dream tracker. When you wake up, jot down what you’ve just experienced with your eyes closed. Then, you’ll be able to look up the meaning and track what’s going on when the lights go out. It’s a great way to keep up with any changes to your sleep patterns as well.

3. Daily Planner
Instead of buying a brand new one, just turn that blank notebook into your daily planner. Keep up with your school or work schedule, assignments, appointments, the kids’ practices and more inside. You can have a lot of fun personalizing it as well, just like Coffee and Pretty Paper did.
