Fav notepads to take call notes?

I've seen so many sales folks take notes using pen/paper. I love my Moleskin notepad.


Do you have any fav brand? Or just sheet of paper from Walmart?

I just get them from Amazon. Order a bulk amount and I am good for a while.ย

Same. Steno Pads from Better Office Products, then splurge on UniBall Vision fine pens

GoodNotes on an iPad with an Apple Pencil. You will never go back to old school notebooks and pens again.

I'm a big fan of Moleskine. I find (with most things in life) the more I spend on something, the more likely I am to use it. So I splurge a bit and get a nice Moleskine notebook and a nice pen.ย

Yes that's what I am aiming to get. Just a question, how long does that pen last you? I heard they wear out pretty fast

I also have a moleskin notepad. Love it. I also jot on sticky notes - depends on what type of notes I'm taking I guess. I use a different fountain pen for each day of the week!

Moleskin is worth the price.

I audio record if it's a good one. Then I transcribe to a word doc later on key points to put in a digital file.ย 

I have pen and paper as well for backup if something goes wrong. Legal pads are my go to.ย

Rocketbook my friend. Cheaper than a reMarkable (but those are pretty sweet) and allows you to write, upload, and erase.ย 

As someone that frankly takes some great notes, it's annoying having to track them down and keep them sorted so you can actually go review prior to a meeting. With it all uploaded to my work drive I can use my naming conventions and sort it out how I like to easily find it again. It's like technology's answer to the disc ring notebook (if you are someone who needs a physical notebook, disc rings are amazing for being able to move pages around however you'd like)

Also since it's a reusable notebook I don't feel bad if I "wasted" a page with some notes that I realized aren't important at the end. Note take away and decide what to do with it later.ย
