No not the movie. I hate that movie. Don't even get me started on all the things that are wrong with it...
Anyway! The importance of the PICARDY Notebook
I write everything in here. I wrote down the mixes we tried for stains
Whenever I go look at tile, granite, laundry room storage or ANY samples I always write down what store I was at, which samples I liked and what price they were
I write out directions to obscure molding warehouses so I don't have to look them up again
We plan out rooms, fences, decks in it
And we write down materials we've used.
It really is invaluable. I write notes to myself all the time, so I have become super diligent about keeping this with me at all times
Sure most people have those fancy pants smart phones now, but I'm still a tangible person and so I want to see, feel, touch, and write on lined paper. I don't know what it is, but it's more effective for me.
So having this notebook on hand where I can refer back, prove Chris wrong about something :), or just jot down some idea about the potential materials/layout of the back patio that we won't get to for another year and a half is really nice (seriously I just thought of something a few days ago and wrote it down inside for fear of forgetting about it).
The notebook is used frequently and is much appreciated
