Legit Journals

Though there is convenience and permanence in writing online I have to write everything down, pen to paper, before it ever reaches the keyboard. There is a magic in physical writing and my ideas tend to flow much more organically when I am writing versus typing.

I absolutely love journal shopping. Target, online, local stores, Barnes and Noble; you name it, I am looking at their stock in journals. I love Moleskin journals as they have such a clean look. The pages are quality and, let’s be real, they are just so aesthetic. However, the price. $20 for paper where most of what’s written inside it is going to be scratched out and revised? As much as I would love to be able to spend that much on a single journal that just isn’t cost effective for me.

I needed a journal for writing stories, poetry, or content of that nature. For bullet journaling I wouldn’t use since it is regular lined paper, nor sketching, or school(which I stick with the $1 notebooks).

I like things that are inspiring and interesting and when I found a company that is exactly that and also environmentally friendly, or at least as environmentally friendly as you could be in the paper industry, I was ecstatic.


I found the Decomposition books. They each have a fun and original design by Michael Roger. Each of the notebooks or composition books is made with recycled paper. I bought three at Target, however they do have a direct online site; which you should check out at: https://decomposition.com



I love each of these covers (especially the astronaut cats) and I can’t wait to fill them with stories. I bought these for $6 each.
