I’ve been asked by many friends about my use of the Moleskine (or Piccadilly knockoff) notebooks. There are many uses for this versatile little pocket notebook but more and more popular is the PDA “hack” for pocket moleskines. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I thought I’d share this post for a moleskine hack. It comes from the “Art of Manliness” blog and author Stephen Young:
Of all the tools in your arsenal, without a doubt the most important is your pocket notebook. Notebooks are the obvious precursor to PDA’s and computers, and still have the upper hand on these gadgets in that they are quickly accessible, absolutely customizable and completely unique. No other technology will allow you to easily compile lists, sketches, calendars, notes, plans, links – exactly the way you want them.

Again, you do not need a moleskine to make this work. Any pocket notebook will do. Piccadilly makes a nice copy of the moleskine for about half the price and it can be purchased at most Borders bookstores. As fall approaches, now is the time to look at getting better organized. This little hack may just be what you are looking for!
