Staples ARC notebook system (on sale until the 12th).

It's exactly like the Levenger Circa notebooks, that allow you to move the order the of note pages around but it's LOADS cheaper.

They also have plastic or leather notebooks in 3 different sizes.

They had several different styles of pages (straight lined, graph, to do list, calander, and a few others).

I got the Letter sized notebook (with 50 pages and plastic cover) for $5.99, the leather was $11.

Great way to try this type of system without spending $40-50.

I find this system to be great, allows me to write scenes out of order and then put them in order again once it's all written up.

Im going to have to go get me that!  Thank you very much.  I recently lost my WIP for the second time (i now email myself a copy of the days work) and my muse doesnt want to rehash something she has gone over twice already.  But she does have some fantastic ideas for what was to be the next arc of my story.


I bought the smaller one for 4.79 and I am going back tomorrow for the bigger one...I really want the presentation pages that the letter size has.

Wish I had found these sooner, they are awesome and so great for so many things.  Read also that the Levenger punch works with the ARC system too, same with the paper.

Levenger has some very interesting papers for itssystem, too, so it's nice that they will work here. My dad writes on his compute but leaves hisself all kinds of postit notes on his details, research, ideas, ect. I think he might like one of these.
