I’m a paper and pen kind of person. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m as attached to my iPhone as the next person. But when it comes to daily tasks and lists, I prefer making them on paper. There’s something very satisfying about crossing off those “things to do” and I feel accomplished when I look back and see what I’ve done. When I was offered the review of the Staples Arc Notebook System, I definitely got excited.
The Arc System has several options. I was gifted the M By Staples Arc Customizable Leather Notebook System in black with a top bound spiral. It’s a regular sized (11-3/4” x 8-1/2”) notebook. I was also gifted a few accessories – a set of refill paper, a set of page flags, and a set of task pads. The accessories snap into the Arc Notebook, thus being really convenient to use.
There are several more options with the Arc System – my favorite being the smaller notebook system. Those even come in different colors and styles. Once I received my larger notebook, my husband brought home a smaller version for me to check out. Ironically, he had been using it at work and I didn’t even know. I’ve since convinced him to let me keep the smaller version and I’ve loaded it full of dividers and notes.
I love having everything I could need right at my fingertips. It makes it easy to cross off my To-Do List but jot down notes to myself – like when I need to return library books or pick up more stamps. I plan to add the undated calendar and a zip pocket to my notebook as well, transforming it into a complete planner and task center for myself.
This system is great for people who work outside the home as well, with options like the Project Planner, zip pockets, graph paper, and business card holders. There’s many choices for a colored system or just plain black. The leather makes it look professional and expensive, all while being very reasonably priced, but you can also choose poly covers and more. It can truly be customized for each person’s liking, without spending an outrageous amount. Right now you can even save during Staples Compare and Save event, going on through November 18th. Check out all the options online or at your local Staples store.
I truly enjoy using my Arc System Notebook – the large size is great for my kid’s drawings and my own larger lists or projects, while the smaller notebook has become my lifeline for organization.
