Here’s a quick setup from Moleskinerie pal Marc Veeneman:

I had to get permission to post this but finally here’s Mr. Veeneman’s email on the subject:
"I uncovered a leather pocket Moleskine case with pen(cil) holder at the
Barnes & Noble store. They sell a ‘personal organizer’ for 2006 in
5" size that’s just perfect. Retail is $14.95 but they are 75% off now
so it’s affordable. After setting aside all of the 3" x 5" loose leaf
pages, use a screw driver as a prybar to dislodge the end fastening
posts from the ring mechanism. Slip the prybar between the curved
metal piece which serves to unclasp the rings and the long bar which
houses the rings. Twist a few times on each end and you’ll lift the
entire mechanism away from the zipper binder; discard the mechanism.
What you have left is a zipper binder which holds the pocket Moleskine,
a G2 or other favorite writing instrument, a couple of 3" x 5" index
cards (under a flap on the inside cover), and some business cards (or
The price is right.
also have a smaller binder whose ring mechanism is tabbed at both ends
with an easily dislodged bent metal tab and is glued to the leather.
This mechanism also dislodges easily and the glue can be rubbed off the leather with your finger tips. This smaller binder
holds the W&N watercolor box I described some time ago on the
Moleskinerie discussion about colored pencils. There’s enough extra
room for a small water container. The same binder could easily be used
to hold short colored pencils or watercolor crayons like the Neocolor
IIs. Net price of this $9.95 binder is $2.50 after the 75% discount.
If you have, as I did, a B&N membership card, the net price comes
down to $2.25 before tax.
These bargains won’t last so don’t tell your friends before you hustle to the nearest B&N store to pick up your own."
