Walmart 5X7" (~B4) Pocket Notebook 67¢

Recommended Posts

Happened to be in Walmart and found "Junior Composition Books" 5x7" for 67¢ ! 80 micro-perforated sheets with college ruling available in a variety of colors. They had some from Indonesia and others from India; the Indian paper felt a bit smoother. Got home and tries some ink with great results, no feather and very little bleed through. Nice find!

I've generally been pleased with the cheap Indian-made mini composition books from Dollar Tree. So it doesn't surprise me that these have decent paper as well.

I think I've gotten one or two of the larger size composition books from Walmart gotten during
"back to school" sales when stuff is *really* inexpensive (the sales are designed for people to stock up). I don't think I'd like the smaller size like what you have, although.

Thanks for the heads-up! I'm also a frequent customer of Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree and (like Ruth) have found the India-made notebooks to be decent.

Nice one! I don’t have a Walmart nearby but do have a Target. I’ll have to see if there’s anything similar.


I have had all good experiences with Indian-made paper which, I believe, consistently has a high bagasse or sugar cane fiber content.


I have a local 99cent store which carries composition notebooks made in India and the paper is also quite fountain pen ink friendly.

Thank you, OCArt...

The WalMart near me in south Reno NV has trouble keeping shelves stocked.

Finally found some of these notebooks there a couple days ago.

Somehow, all of them ended up in my basket and I find the quality exceptional for the price.

OCArt, Thanks for sharing this. I am always on the hunt of fountain pen friendly paper and yet affordable. I will see if my local Walmart carries those!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
