Those of you who know me know that I’m all about the planner. Over the years, I’ve tried many different versions, both paper and electronic, but have always come back to the good old fashioned paper planner. There’s something so comforting about writing something down. A few months ago my sister introduced me to the Staples Arc system, which I promptly fell in love with.

Then you have to get all creative and print them yourself, an undertaking that I don’t have the patience for. I bought the little hole punch and have used it for a few things, but I find myself not needing as much “customization” as I had originally thought.

I keep hoping that they’re working on Christmas miracles. You can expect a full review once I get it!
