What is a handbook?

It is said that as early as 1812, Charles Letts, a veteran stationery manufacturer in London, created the predecessor of the modern handbook in order to meet the needs of customers who want to record the inventory and accounting of goods. In addition, Japan's Central Printing Factory produced notebooks for staff in 1880, and notebooks for writing and recording gradually flourished in Japan.

Therefore, handbooks mostly refer to notebooks that are easy to carry. With the increasing variety and demand of handbooks, there are handbooks for different goals such as work handbooks and travel handbooks, and there are blank pages, graph paper and other designs on the inner pages, and even electronic handbooks are available.

What can be written in a handbook?

The contents of the handbook can be written according to personal needs, and most of them can be divided into the following categories.

1. Work planning:

For office workers, in addition to recording basic agency items, the handbook can also record customer information, project progress and other content. Having tasks and schedules clearly listed not only makes your work clear at a glance, but also helps you see how productive you are.

2. Bookkeeping and Banking:

Using a handbook to list expenses and expenses can give you a better sense of the flow of money. In addition, you can put your savings goals and planners in to help you track them regularly, or you can include your financial notes and investment records for more comprehensive financial management.

3. Travel History:

Before the departure of the trip, you can record important information such as itinerary and luggage list in your notebook as a second reminder to yourself. After the trip, in addition to putting your travel memories in the community, you can also record them in a handbook.

Whether you have any thoughts on the transportation when you travel, or the ticket stubs collected along the way, or even the photos you washed out, you can collect them in it, and you can recall the throbbing through handwriting.
