Word Notebooks Make Quick Work Of To-Do Lists

We all love a handy little aesthetically-pleasing notebook, but most just give you lined paper and call it a day. Word Notebooks take their job a little more seriously and come with a simple but effective task management system.

It works like this:

  • Make a bullet point for a to-do item
  • Circle it if you want to mark it as important
  • Put one diagonal line through it to mark the task as in progress
  • Put another diagonal line to make an X and mark the task as complete

Every line comes with a grey circle in the margin to guide through the above steps and the front flap includes these instructions so you don't forget. The notebooks come in a variety of styles and only cost $US10 for a three pack.

    Because you couldn't draw a circle and a cross in a standard lined notebook?

      Because no one thought of making money from the idea.

        and because you've already seen it and been explained how to do it their way. I don't see them having any advantage over other ordinary notebooks.

    I just made my own, literally just now.

      I'd use these. They're prettier than what I could make myself and if you want to be like that about it, I could sew my own clothes and grow my own food as well but sometimes it's nice to let someone else do it for you.

    why do they never mention postage costs in these things?

      because they are from the US lifehacker site, and they get free postage.

      and adding it would be one extra step and involve more work.
