What do you do with your used Bloc Rhodia pads?

After finding the image above in our Rhodia Drive Flickr Photo Pool, I sent Wink a message asking her to tell me more…

“That photo is of a stack of my father’s pads, rather than my own. For as long as I can remember, my dad has carried a Rhodia No. 11 (grid) in his shirt or jacket pocket, but that may have been the first time I’d ever spotted a “graveyard” of spent blocs. I never before thought about where they went once filled up. When I consider how long he’s carried one, and how frequently he uses it, I have to assume that the dozen I quickly photographed with my iPhone are merely the tip of an orange iceberg.”

Do you maintain a orange iceberg like Wink’s Dad?

  1. you cant toss them, not allowed.
    I don’t have rhodias (i use moleskins) and just stumbled across this randomly, but as a journalist i have to save all my notes and interviews. As a result i save every notebook i ever write a thought in, journalism related or not. i wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s almost like proof that your brain is working beyond the daily grind

  3. Okay, it’s not the tip, it’s the whole iceberg.

    I don’t know when my daughter took this picture, but I just turned around and that same pile is still on a bookshelf. Guess it’s time to toss ’em. Even priceless observations have a shelf life.

  5. I never thought about saving the pages! I use mine like ordinary scratch pads. When i’m done with a page I tear it out and toss it. Isn’t that what the perforations are for?
