I've never really created a BOS and I feel like it's time. I've tried to add things to a book, but just don't feel it, if you know what I mean. I've even tried a couple of different styles of books, and pens, and everything. So this is what I'm thinking about:

I want to use a recipe box. That way I can easily add cards and take them out for use for a particular activity. I don't have a lot of space to work in, so this seems like it will work for me. And, in the long run, if I don't like it I can always add the cards to whatever book I end up loving.

So my question is, what should my categories be for the BOS? I have room for 10 but could always add more. Do you have sections for yours? What are they?

I really dig the idea of a recipe box BOS! That sounds brilliant. Unfortunately, I'm super crazy long winded, so all my info wouldn't fit on cards, lol. It's kinda like the idea of those old fashioned "books", which were just pieces of sheaf in a box. Either way, I really like it. Good luck!

As far as categories, I would go with stuff that's actually important to you... The choices literally are endless.
My categories include:

Spells & Chants
Gems, Stones, & Their Uses
Runes & Symbols
Candle & Color Magic
Gods & Goddesses
The Wheel of the Year

I've also got an entire handwritten book on the language of flowers from Victorian England, and I'm working on Sigil Creation as well as Vodou.

Thank you so much, cavewoman!

This adds a lot to the categories I was thinking about. I'm thinking about separate tabs for stones, colors, etc. but might end up putting them together for now in a reference category.

Symbols is a good one, I hadn't thought of that.

So now I'm thinking:

Crystals/colors/candles (reference)
Moon Phases
Sabbats/Esbats/Wheel of the Year

I think that's a great start! Thanks for all your help.
