There's a lot of paper available to me that's computer printed on one side, so I bought a .99 cent clipboard and am using the blank side of the printed paper for disposable writing (notes or drafts, UI sketches, stuff that I don't need to keep).

I like the clipboard; it's portable and doesn't require access to a desk to table to use.

The other recent acquisition is a Rocket Book (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=as_li_ss_tl?k=rocketbook&crid=8ZWO3AHKWYUL&sprefix=Rocketbook,aps,216&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_10&linkCode=ll2&tag=absolutewritedm-20&linkId=4658b13698dd416ce7fc419c7abedf6a&language=en_US).

There are a bunch of different ones; I bought a Rocketbook Everlast (https://www.amazon.com/Rocketbook-Everlast-Reusable-Notebook-Executive/dp/B07CZ37VXN?th=1)that's 8.5 x 11 and has 32 pages of dot-grid "paper."
You use Pilot Frixion erasable pens, then can wipe off the page with a damp cloth. There are apps to allow the page to be photographed na uploaded to Dropbox or other similar services.

The pages are reusable for a very long time.

I thought about buying a Rocketbook Fusion (https://www.amazon.com/Rocketbook-Everlast-Fusion-Letter-Size/dp/B07RTN4F7D/ref=as_li_ss_tl?crid=8ZWO3AHKWYUL&keywords=rocketbook&qid=1567605667&s=gateway&sprefix=Rocketbook,aps,216&sr=8-4&linkCode=ll1&tag=absolutewritedm-20&linkId=92439d142e507f51cc659b69a38dae55&language=en_US), which has templates and 42 pages, but thought I'd go with the dot grid version since I could use a Sharpie to make a template for things like a monthly or weekly calendar or a Todo list, if I decide to go in that direction.

Those links are Amazon AW affiliate links, but I bought mine from Rocketbook (https://getrocketbook.com); it was on sale for 25% off.

This sounds like something one of my sisters would like. She works for the Sierra Club and is super waste-conscious.

Does the right kind of pen happen to fit in the Rocketbook's spiral? I break a lot of cool notebooks jamming pens in there, because I always want the pen to be attached.

As we itemizewhat we're donating during our packing up (we move in a few weeks), I'm using a clipboard on every floor, and like AW Admin, the backs of printed sheets to list what's going into the box as I pack it. Later on I'll type it up so the tax folks will continue to love us.

I know, I know, I could make a lot more if I sold it, since the deduction is now puny or requires much giving, but there's no time. As The Kid suggested, I try to focus on the delight of a buyer who finds my Cool Thing, whatever it may be.

Pilot's FriXion pens come in multiple styles, pen widths (.38mm, .05mm, .07mm, highlighters, markers etc.) and many (more than 20) colors. Probably one would fit.

If I find the Rocketbook useful enough to have it in regular use/rotation, I'll likely buy a pen loop to affix inside the backcover.

Huh. I hadn't heard of Rocketbooks before but that looks potentially very handy.
