Yesterday, following Moleskine’s release of their new portfolio books, John from Pencil Revolution asked:
Anyone know of a portfolio type item that is not made by Moleskine?
This is the portfolio book in question. From the outside, it looks like a standard Moleskine notebook but on the inside its a divided pocket accordion book with an elastic closure. The 3.5″ x 5.5″ size sells for $13.95 and the 5.5″ x 8.5″ is $18.95.
I did a little sleuthing and came up with a couple alternatives:
1. Pocket Accordion Organizer from The Container Store ($10.99): Printed on the side of this accordion pocket book is “I know I put it somewhere”. Inside is a multi-pocket accordion folder for notes and scraps and a notepad and pen. (4.125″ x 6.5″)
2. Knock Knock Crap Receiptables Personal Assistant Organizer from ModCloth ($13.99): This cheeky option includes a notepad printed with “Endless Crap” at the top, stickers for the tabbed accordion folder and comes with a ballpoint pen. (7.25″ x 4″)
3. Paperthinks Memo Pocket Notebooks ($14.95): This is my favorite choice. Its made from recycled leather, includes a notepad for lists and notes and an expandable divided pocket. Its available in 24 different colors including my favorite, lime green. (3.5″ x 6″)
Hope this helps and if anyone has any other options, please leave a note in the comments.

Believe I’m inclined to utilize the knock, knock one or the container store items. Like the look and design of them. Who wouldn’t want something from their “crap” line. I have a few sets of their file folders and quite enjoy them around the office.
I like this one by HAY http://hayshop.dk/products/71-office/411-plisse/
