Arc Planner & Give Away

I'm a huge lover of the Arc Notebook from Staples. So today I just wanted to write a little bit about what I have done with the inside of mine.  Its so easy to buy a planner then forget about it, which is why I love this one. It's so easy to sort out and personalise it to just how I want it. Meaning ill want to use it rather than a 'one and done' job.

In my last post i wrote about wanting to buy a few things for it such as extension disks. I landed up going with the largest ones which are 38mm and can hold up to 150 sheets. These are far larger than the ones which come with the notebook at 19mm.  They look really chunky but I know when i start to add further pages ill be thankful I have the room to expand. 


I had also purchased the blank pages which honestly have completely changed how I look at my planner. These blank pages are thick enough to safely print on at 100gsm. I love designing my own pages for this book. Some of the ones I have made are the one above for helping me stay on track with saving money. I really love the workout scheduale one I designed. I have it in a few colours in my planner to swap out my routen every few weeks.


Other purchases for my planner were picking up the Diary, Zip Pockets, Page Flags and more plastic dividers. I love the plastic dividers and have colour coded the whole planner so finding what I need could not be easier. These little page flags are also really handy, not just for this planner, but to have when I'm sorting out paperwork.


The only thing i would change is not purchasing the diary insert, since buying the blank pages I'm able to make up my own weekly and monthly overviews. I find the weekly views inconvenient as there are no dates on them. There's nothing wrong with them quality wise, just doesn't work for what I want to do with my planner. My next goals for this planner is to upgrade the cover to the purple leather version plus get my hands on more blank pages (I got rather carried away with printing out).

However don't take my word for all this, I'm offering the change to get your hands on your very own black a5 starter Arc planner which has eveything you see in the image below.

Its a brand new day and with it brought a brand new year. So I would like to give you all the chance to win your own Arc notebook which has really changed the way I organise my blogging and life.  To take part just follow the instructions below.
