Convert a Pocket Reporter Moleskine into a Hipster PDA. Stores cards loose and bound, stands easel-style upright, holds a pen, with room for PostIts and PagePoints.

Step 1: Assemble Your Stuff

The Hipster PDA is a good idea, and lots of users of this idea are also into Moleskine notebooks. I was looking up hacks on the Moleskine, in fact, when I found the Hipster PDA, and was moved to combine these good ideas into one critter.

You need what's in the picture.
Yeah, pointless? Ripping out paper to replace with... paper.
I don't understand the point of this mod at all. So you cut all the pages out & clipped in notecards instead, bent the cover backwards and added some random page clips that don't serve a purpose since there aren't any pages to clip? Why not just put a binder clip for notecards on your moleskine and paste the post-it-markers to the cover & call it quits? There's no need to cut the whole thing apart just to put it back together.. "Don't fix it if it's not broken."
i have a little modification of this instructable. There is no need to stick the index card pad into case, if you use a pad with the same widht as the pocket in the case. When you are using DYIPlanner Hipster templates, it is possible to clip stack of index cards at the left edge of the case. This makes place for tabs and pen at the right side.
The Pilot Precise is the pen of the Gods.
ok... this is cool, but like okto said, I don't understand why you ripped out the paper just to replace it with index cards... oh well
I'm pained to look at it. ;_; nice project, though.
so.... i'm lost. why not just use the book, and tear out pages as you go, rather than waste it? i do this with several small notepads i use (for varied things) fold abotu 1/4" from top, tear out, repeat as necessary. once the book is empty, or nearly so, you can tidy up the edges with a blade, and then use the margins to hold in the note cards.
Wait...so, buy a Moleskine and rip out the paper to make room for...paper? Doesn't this defy GTD by un-doing things that are already done, IE, paper already bound into the notebook?
Please rotate the first image so that it doesn't look like it's stuck to a wall. Color correction would be great, too.
This is an example of how to write an instructable! Very well done. Everyone who thinks about posting should read this first, or perhaps <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/E3GFOOK7ZFES17606W/">this</a> (if I can self plug). I don't want to see anymore instructables where there are no pictures, no real instructions, or anything worth while.<br/>
I know that it stands for &quot;Parietal Disgorgement Aid&quot;, but it should technically be just called a PAA (Personal Analog Assistant) since PDA misleads you from &quot;Personal Digital Assistant&quot;.<br/>Here's a link: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.diyhappy.com/personal-analog-assistant/">http://www.diyhappy.com/personal-analog-assistant/</a><br/><br/>Good job anyhow.... I have to go now, the BATT. LOW light on my keyboard is flashing like crazy....<br/>
