There's a whole community of devoted scribblers sprouting up around Field Notes. These small memo books, created by Coudal Partners and Draplin Design Co., fit neatly into your shirt pocket for any spur-of-the-moment note-taking needs. The suggested uses include: crop predictions, phone numbers, shady transactions, big ideas/insights and escape routes. If you're still stumped for ideas, head to the blog or Flickr group to see how everyone else puts them to use. Or just plunk down $9.95 for a three-pack and let nature take its course.
