You never know how vital a notepad is until you don’t have one and you’re scrambling around writing on the back of crumpled receipts (:::ahem::: or so I’ve heard). I don’t care how many notes you take on your phone, there is no replacing an actual paper notepad. Here’s a sampling of the many, many designs available on Etsy!
