I’m truly addicted to planning.
I write down what I’ll be doing hourly each day. I am very much obsessed with notebooks, dividers, themed stickers, pens, highlighters, and pretty much anything you can find in n the office supply section.
I am also a bit of a planner snob. I used to buy whatever planner was the cheapest, but then a few years back I was introduced to the most flexible, customizable, and most convenient planners I could imagine. I found the Arc System planners and notebooks and fell even more in love with office supplies. At first I questioned the prices of the Arc notebooks, paper, and supplies (I was especially looked dumbfounded when I saw how much the hole punch cost!) but I went on a limb, bought them and tried them for myself.
I was amazed how easy it was to add and remove old papers and notes, moving them from one planner to another. I also found I have saved quite a bit of money in the long run, since I am using some of the same planners I bought several years ago. (It also helps that I discovered I don’t necessarily have to buy the Arc paper to fill my planners !)
The Arc notebook and planning systems are great for personalization, and have proven to be worth more than the dollars paid for them. I have not one, but four planners from the Arc System, and I use each and every one of them daily – I told you I’m obsessed.
I have a planner for everyday life, a planner for work and school, a planner for prayer, a planner for budgeting, and a planner for food and a for fitness. As crazy as this may sound each of these planners keep me motivated and remind me to stay focused no matter what the task is at hand. With multiple notebooks I only have between 1-3 things written down in each, which puts me at ease, and helps me feel as if I’m halfway finished with the many chores, work, and errands I have planned for one day.
The Arc System is durable and convenient with the many different sizes. Some come already put together, or each part of the Arc System can be bought separately so that they can be personalized 100%.
I definitely recommend these notebooks for any type of planning and organizing. They’re excellent for various people’s needs when keeping up with their to-do lists.
Have fun and happy planning!
