    I always "cut" down thouse manuals to the actuall needed infos. Most of it is blabla in my expirience. But since I have not set that binder up jet it is just big talk for now.

    Here is another idea I just found on YouTube: this Girl uses a Filofax as a 42 folder system. The video is a bit on the long side (or so I feel) but her ideas are worth thinking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwR52uD39aw

    I watch videos like this when I am on my mini-tramp to get some exercise. So maybe I am bit low on oxygen here right now. Tell me, if you think the idea is stupid.

    Since most manuals are available online you could just cut n paste the bits you want and print it out whatever size you like

    @Ilkyway @ceepee - Hmm, yeah. I'll take a look at what I have after exams and see if I can throw something neat together, TB-fied or not.

    @marytattoo - Have Evernote, don't use it (for now, anyway; cannot even remember why I DLed it!). I tend to be a hardcopy person for paperwork and scheduling but that's another option to consider when I have time.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Finally had a chance this AM to finish setting mine up as an watercolor sketchbook. I plan for my kids to use this when we are out and about as well. Also, I am really enjoying the book Urban Watercolor Sketching. I studied and worked with watercolors all through college, but never used them much after. This book has been so fun to refresh my mind and skills (which still have a long way to go.)

    I have a couple of Pentel Aquabrushes, a Lamy Safari with blue ink, Koh-I-Nor artist pencil, and a sharpie. Watercolors in a travel kit. Moleskine Watercolor Journal and some inexpensive watercolor paper, and gridded paper. Front pocket has extra refills for the fountain pen, an eraser, and paper towels.

    I just checked with my brand new iPad mini in a slim case: it fits behind the papers if not too full OR in the open outer pocked.

    Just saying...

    Urgh! The iPad mini fits perfectly, just as I suspected/feared. I really really like the pen slots and size of the FJN but I'm not a binder person or a sketcher/journaler. I'm a jotter and listmaker with a propensity for bound notebooks so it seems like overkill. But the size - nice!

    On a related note, would anyone with both an FJN and a DLBC be willing to photograph them side-by-side? I know the measurements, of course, but I'd love to see the difference. Recent posts about the DLBC have me thinking that it might be a good way of getting the sleek look of the FJN with the added benefit of being able to carry larger books/notebooks or even a small water bottle when needed (but no red blend or pen slots).

    PS: The Field Journal is an "old" style with the zippers inside-out. But everything else, as Darcy assured me in another thread, is the same.

    Ilkyway, you are incredible! That really helps show the both the size difference and the similarities in styling.
