Tight package with every feature you’d ever need, great for students
Not a real leather notebook, What you’d expect from a stationary company
You know your journal notebook means business when it arrives with its own ‘User Manual’. First and foremost, we know this isn’t a leather journal, but we couldn’t leave it out of our Top 10 due to how many cool features it boasts!
The BASICS Notebook arrived and we immediately felt like our lives should be more organised. It came with a coupon code welcoming us to the BASICS family, with a 20% discount voucher for life. We guess they’re banking on you loving this notebook journal and wanting to buy it for family and friends.
This is the Notebook that raised $383,385 (USD) on Kickstarter, because the BASIC marketing team are pure genius when it comes to showcasing features and how they make your life easier. Notable features include a back pocket, goal mapping, whiteboard paper and pen, planner, dual elastics, lined/blank/perforated paper, lay-flat design and a pen holder, all designed to help you simplify, focus and succeed at your complicated life.

We both liked and disliked having to read a ‘User Manual’ before getting to use the BASICS notebook. This product fits neatly into a laptop bag and didn’t catch on anything or get in the way. The folding envelope inside the back cover is great for storing any receipts or notes. The perforated pages made it easy to tear out and share lists, and the off white ‘parchment’ paper colour was easy on the eyes during longer writing periods. To be honest neither of us took the time to follow the tasks, planning and goals sections in the first half of the journal notebook. We found them a little gimmicky, but is likely because we knew we’d be reviewing the product for 7 days only.

“The Swiss Army Knife of Notebooks”
Sure, this isn’t a hand crafted leather bound journal, but for what it lacks in charm, it almost entirely makes up for with a huge list of features to make your life more organised! This is the Swiss Army Knife of notebooks, and we feel this product is perfect for high-school and college students from all over the globe.
