I wanted to pass along a handy little tool I have found for a measly $9.99 at Staples. It is a leather 'note jotter' that carries about 25 index cards. Whenever I need to get an idea, action, project, or whatever, down on paper, out comes my Jotter. When I get back home, as I empty my pockets I find loose cards in my pocket (this is a "put it in front of the door" technique) as part of my pocket-emptying routine (keys, wallet, etc.). I just toss my new ideas into my Inbox for processing.
Here is a link--the item is all the way to the left at the top: http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/marke...card-case.html
I really like this tool because:
a) this looks nicer than a stack of loose cards
b) it holds the cards all in one place without the edges getting dog-eared
c) because there is no cover, it is just as fast to use as pulling out a card
d) cheaper than other leather alternatives
e) it has 4 pockets, in case I want to store colored or non-ruled cards, also.
I know someone else on this forum would like these, so I thought I'd pass it along.
