Best Buy of 2013

I have a bit of a compulsive buying habit.  Which if funny, because I also tend to not spend my money at all.  It's usually a case of "No, I can do without new shoes, new clothes, any jewelry, oh, but I'll buy this random thing.  This is a great idea."

Last year journals were the thing to buy.  I believe I bought four.  And one of them I consider my best buy of 2013 (to be honest, I haven't written up everything I bought and then chosen it as the best, but I can't think of anything that tops it at the moment):

It is a small bonded leather journal that fits in my purse.  Since a pen also fits in my purse, it comes to a perfect combination.

I love having something to write things on always handy.  There were often times when I would write poems on backs of stray receipts, but no more!  And anytime I want to write down a grocery list, remember a song or artist that someone is telling me about, or have a drawing contest while waiting for food at a restaurant, I've got the paper handy.

It's pretty adorable too.  Cute and functional.
