miquelrius / arc hack

While looking for something in my archive files, I stumbled upon my old miquelrius notebooks. I had forgotten how much I loved them - much like I love the Staples arc collection. I had a blank 4x6 graph notebook that I probably purchased accidentally, thinking it consisted of regular lined pages. Well now that I am so psyched about mindmapping, I feel like I have use for this kind of paper. So I decided to punch it and put it in my mini arc notebook. Gonna give it a whirl and see how it goes.

Anyone ever try this or something similar?

The link you posted is

The link you posted is similar in that it's grid paper but the books I had are spiral. I can't find it on the Sam Flax website; perhaps it is no longer in circulation. I took a picture of one of my notebooks. How can I add pictures to my post? I had a few of them, actually. I took a stroll down memory lane to my pre-disc days. I remember going for a job interview at NYU several years back and realizing before leaving the interview that the job wouldn't work for me even if I did get it. On my way back to the subway I discovered oodles and oodles of Miquelrius notebooks at the NYU bookstore and I went to town. When I got home, my smile was so huge that everyone assumed I had gotten the job...lol.

I have been making great use of the arc mini but have decided that the unconvential size is a bit of a pain. Soooooo, in typical DIY fashion, I am using the covers and the discs only. I cut my own paper to quarter-size pages, which is easy for me to do. I have also made a couple of templates that are still in the works. I can add them, but I doubt anyone is interested in this tiny size. I am a NYer who carries a tiny purse. This size notebook helps me utilize both technology & paper. I cannot carry a huge tablet and a huge notebook. This size also fits the Miquelrius grid paper once I tear it away from the perforated edge. So now my notebook consists of blank quarter-size pages, quarter-size to-do pages, quarter-size ruled pages, and some notes that I have typed.
