Small Goal, Small Reward

Well, I have bought something for myself as a 'lost five pounds' reward.

I like to keep lists, as I've said. And my list notebooks are getting towards their very last pages. I have 15 pages left in one book and about 20 left in the other. While this will probably last me at least a month's worth of lists, I've decided to go ahead and buy a new notebook anyway.

This is the notebook's cover.

I like it because it is a nice shade of green, plus who doesn't like pirates? Also, it's got that cute iThing. Not that I'm a Mac person, but the iThing is sort of a cute marketing gimmick.

I'm a list maker too, but never thought about a cute notebook!

Thank you for your kind words the other day regarding the death of my grandmother.

Welcome to the challenge and I look forward to reading about your progress.

I'm such a list maker! I always have a notebook open on my desk ready to scribble thoughts.

What a great idea to buy yourself something fun like a note book for a reward!!

I love buying paper products! There's nothing better than rewarding yourself with a little organizational bling. Way to go.

List notebooks! ooooh! Fun idea! The anal-retentive OCD part of me just got all excited.

Good for you on rewarding yourself. That's soooooo important.

I have lists that date back to college. My husband and I made one super long list of things we wanted to do when we were dating. We have notebooks everywhere. I love them. Have fun. This is terrific.
