bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Docket Gold Heavy Duty Legal Pads


I've been using yellow legal pads for making lists forever.

Turns out there are yellow legal pads and then there are yellow legal pads.

Docket Gold makes a version with very thick, rigid, sturdy cardboard backing that's a real pleasure to use.


The paper's thicker as well.

They cost way more than standard versions — $26.55 vs. $9.77 for a dozen — but to me it's worth paying extra for this simple daily pleasure.

Last week I suddenly realized that I seem to have only one 8-1/2 x 11 white notepad in my house. Me, a retired technical writer! I should have tons of debris like that but since I have digitized I have none of it. So I went to Staples and bought two pads. Just in case. And a packet of retractable gel pens. No I’m good for another 30 years.
