I am a person who loves composition notebooks. Reason #1 they are cheap I can get them from the dollar store. Reason #2 They come in fun colors and I can color code my notes. Reason#3 I am traditional when it comes to note-taking, I like to write things down for future reference. Now I know my iphone has a note pad that I can electronically take notes but It’s just not for me. That’s the reason why when I heard about Rocketbook it was exciting to me. Now, I no longer buy paper notebooks.

What the heck is a Rocketbook?
Rocketbook is a smart notebook. It’s reusable, it feels just like paper and writes just like a regular pen and paper would. However, after writing your notes, list or anything you want you then send it to the cloud. Keeping everything organized neatly with files of your choice to any of the supported cloud-based apps. Once you have saved your notes all you need to do is use your Rocketbook cloth with a little water to wipe it clean. Super AWESOME! You never have to buy a notebook again and you reduce your footprint while saving our trees.
So what does a Rocketbook look like?
Rocketbook has multiple versions of smart notebooks to fit whatever you are into. Let me break each one down for you.
Everlast: This is the one I have. It is the forever reusable notebook. Its compatible pen is the Frixion Ballpoint pen. If you like color pens don’t worry you can get colored pens and have fun with your notes or whatever you choose to write. Once you upload your notes to the cloud you can wipe the notebook clean with a cloth and reuse it again. The Everlast notebook comes with pre-dotted pages. It comes in 4 different colors and 3 different sizes.
Letter Size: 8.5 in x 11 in / 32 pages
Executive Size: 6 in x 8.8 in / 36 pages
Mini Size: 3.5 in x 5.5 in / 48 pages
Wave: This notebook is called the wave, well because you actually put it in your microwave to erase everything you have written. I bet the kids would get a kick out of seeing that. Mommy can do magic tricks, lol. With this book though it has a limited amount of times it can be used which is 5 times.
Standard Size: 8.5 in x 9.5 in / 80 pages
Executive Size: 6 in x 8.9 in / 80 pages
One: This notebook is a one time use notebook. But you can use any kinda pen you want. Could be a cool option for artwork.
Letter Size: 8.5 in x 11 in / 140 pages
Executive Size: 6 in x 8.8 in / 140 pages
Color: The color notebook is my top choice for my toddler/kids. Having the option to reuse the notebook over and over again. But being able to use Crayola dry erase markers in any fun color of their choice. The cover has colored rockets on the outside and you can write their name to personalize it in the inside cover. You can even use crayons and colored pencils!! WHOA! The first 4 double-sided pages are blank. There is 1 double-sided pre-dotted page. My favorite though is the last two pages which are lined paper. Where kiddos can practice how to write their letters and numbers. The Rocketbook color is the ideal notebook for kids of any age. It makes a great gift too. Because it can grow with them through the years.
Which Rocketbook should you get for you and your kids?
I recommend the Rocketbook Everlast for moms and the Rocketbook Color for your kids. The Rocketbook Everlast is the perfect replacement for any paper-based notebooks you are already using. I personally am in process of replacing all my composition notebooks with my Rocketbook notebook. Honestly, the Rocketbook is so affordable too.
Ok, so how do you save everything to the cloud?
Each smart notebook page comes with a QR scan code and next to the code are symbols. Each symbol represents your chosen cloud destination. After downloading the free app. You configure your settings for each of the cloud services you enjoy. It takes a few mins to set each one up. But once it’s done, scanning and saving is EZ PZ !!
Rocketbook works with the following cloud services. I personally love GOOGLE! Like for everything! However, you can use Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, OneDrive, OneNote, Slack, Box, iCloud, iMessage, or Email. Then you can just organize things the way you like. Once it’s in the cloud you can share it, print it, or archive it. Hail to no more paper piles in my house!! Just saying.

Future Rocketbook Miracles
The Rocketbook company is such an innovative company and I truly enjoy the Rocketbooks we own. I also enjoy reading their blog where I learn new ways to use my smart notebook and all the neat new things they are creating. They are so much more than smart notebooks. I am so excited about a couple of new things that they are working on.
On their website, they have a page called the “Ideas” page. This page is where customers can give them ideas to create new products and they give an update to the items the company has decided to create. I am looking forward to these few, reuseable post-it notes, weekly planners and symbol stickers. They are revolutionizing the future and the possibilities.
