The Advantages and Disadvantages of using a Three-Ring binder – Book of Shadows.
Pluses / Advantages:
- This is one of the fastest ways to create a complete book of shadows.
- The contents can be easily shuffled, rearranged, and added to.
- Pages can be easily removed and put in another binder, which is especially convenient when your book grows too big.
- Notes can be easily added in the margins.
- Copies and handwritten pages can be used interchangeably.
- It’s very easy to use.
Minuses / Disadvantages:
- Three ring binders are generally ugly and generic – looking, though there are ways around that.
- Binders are always big and a bit unwieldy when they start getting full.
- They don’t always fit easily on bookshelves or in one’s hands during use.
- Pages tear easily, even in a page protector.
side note: also takes less amount of work to add to / update then most.
Personal note: A three-ring binder was my first ever grimoire, along with spiral, 1-subject, college-ruled notebooks and some looseleaf paper. Mostly, though, these contained notes from various websites, books, lessons, and my first ever spells and rituals that I had made myself. Had these for years, until I lost them in a house fire in 2015.
