In a technology-dependent world full of iPhones, Android smartphones, laptops, notebooks and iPads, it may seem odd to shop around for the best notebooks for college. But if you’re a college professor or college student, you know how much of a hassle it can be to try to keep track of a to-do list solely on your smartphone or to take notes in class. Finding the best notebooks for note taking means the class won’t constantly hear loud tap-tap-tapping while the professor speakers. The best paper notebooks often come in handy when your to-do list on your calendar is trailing down the page.

Deleting it simply won’t do the trick. If you’re an English major, or someone who decides to take an elective in Creative Writing, you’ll want to know the best notebooks for writers. And if you’re none of the above but just need the best notebooks for school that are eco-friendly and gets the job done, there are some green options below too. Check out this list of 25 notebooks to find the one that works best for you.

From a casual glance at the recycled natural fiber pages of these rice paper notebooks, it’s not hard to tell that they’re eco-friendly. But what exactly are you supposed to do with the cinnamon sticks? Find out below.

For some people, the idea of balancing a checkbook or keeping a money tracking journal may seem tedious. But college is as good of a time as any, especially for finance majors, to form good habits about monitoring your money. College Xpress suggests using Mint to see what kind of spending you do.
And while apps such as these will do it, it’s not a bad idea to keep your own finance journal, too. Even if you use electronics for convenience, at least know what they’re doing to avoid being too dependent on them should an app or software go down. (Don’t worry. We won’t lecture you about doing math on calculators versus in your head.)
- Four-pack of field notebooks
- 80 pages each
- Acid-free paper
Choose between lined patterns, dot-graph patterns and graph patterns. Elan Publishing, a manufacturer of these Field notebooks (5 inches x 8 inches), has been in business for the past 50 years so this is an added product.
Choose between black, orange, Kraft or combo designs for whatever suits you best. While the pages are not perforated if used as a financial journal, even better. Chances are this kind of record-keeping would make you want to have the numbers all together to compare months (or even years) later.

The leather smell is probably one of the more distinctive features about this journal (7 inches x 5 inches) from first impression. It’s also identified as soft, durable leather with an oil pulled finish. The handmade asymmetric leather stitching lines the front and sides, with one long leather strap to close and tighten the journal in place. Inside the journal are recycled, blank, off-white/cream colored paper. Acid-free and tree-free, various pens can be used to write on the natural fiber of these 200 pages.
While this leather journal is definitely a keepsake, keep in mind that the paper is not refillable. So it may be best to use this book for artwork you plan to keep. Or, at least art and history notes you want for the long haul.

While creative writing and English classes often seem to be affiliated with lined notebooks and neat notes, that’s not always the case. There are also creative writers who need less boundaries, including screenwriters. Theater majors may be intrigued by the simplicity of the acid-free cream/white thick paper sheets to start drafting potential movies or plays.
- Three-pack of journal notebooks
- Soft cover, spiral design
- Unlined, blank, perforated pages
These high-quality pages will not bleed. This makes it a great tool to not only draft your own stories but also to sketch characters and even wardrobe. The durable binding of the spiral notebook (8.25 inches x 5.5 inches) makes sure the pages stay in place and lay flat when opened. (The latter perk comes in handy should you want to read your notes and/or script aloud.)
Grab a podium and enjoy flipping through the 100 blank perforated pages. And unlike basic computer paper, this spiral notebook has an automatic cover for better protection than loose pages.

- Lay flat wire-o spiral
While this notebook (8.5 inches x 11 inches) is labeled religious, it leans more toward spiritual and colorful. With 120 pages of college ruled papers, you can jot down as many notes as you want in your next Practical Theology class.
This notebook is durable with gloss lamination, this book lays flat to review your notes as needed.
As you can see from the 25 suggested notebooks above, your necessary notetaking or sketching specifications will help you decide which one is right for you. Some people will want lined notebooks; others will prefer unlined visual notetaking. Neither option is wrong, just different. There are common trends above that couldn’t hurt either way.
One is to choose eco-friendly paper. If you can avoid taking down another tree with readily sustainable options, why not? And the other suggested feature is to find a notebook that will lay flat. It’s quite the headache to have to constantly open a notebook or balance it on your elbow while you write. Avoid breaking the seal on your next notebook with almost all of these options. Make your next writing (or sketching) project convenient, earth friendly and fun. Most of all, with all of these options, find a notebook that just looks like it’s “so you.”
