The Arc Notebook Planner and Avant Pen just arrived in the mail for review but I am also excited to announce that you can have your OWN set by entering to win the same style of  Arc Notebook Planner and Avant Pen from Staples in our giveaway below.

I received the 8.5 x 5.5 red planner and all the various inserts including: post-its,  dividers, to-do lists and more.

ARC Planner

With ARC notebooks, you don’t have to worry about opening ring binders any more. The pages just sort of snap onto the rings inside which is super easy. I really enjoyed filling to-do list pages this last weekend when I went to a conference and had a lot of people to talk to along the way and action items I needed to remember. I also loved the feel of the genuine leather outside and the big pockets that I used for business cards I collected.

The inside pages were also perfect for notes on the various conference seminars I attended and for writing down resources to follow up on later. I still need to label my sections with the peel-and-stick tabs so I can find my notes again!

Additionally, the new Avant pen colors are a nice Spring touch! They have a smooth writing action and make you want to get back to basics (and off the computer screen!)

I started using these notebooks years ago when I discovered them in a catalogue. I really like the way you can rearrange papers with ease and take pages from one notebook and add them to another. A brillian idea!

Lindsay April 22, 2013 at 3:19 PM

How fun!

Ann W April 22, 2013 at 4:13 PM

Barb @ A Life in Balance April 22, 2013 at 4:49 PM

LoL – I think _I_ need to be a Staples spokesperson! I love the Arc notebooks because they are so easy to re-arrange. I hadn’t seen those pens yet so of course, I’m going to have to check them out.
