Get Organized with @Staples ARC Products! No more fussing with metal-ring binders and inflexible options.  Staples’ Customizable Notebook System is everything you need to organize your life.  Our motto, here at 24/7 Modern Mom™ is Simple Solutions for Complicated Lives.

This notebook system does the job! When I received my review supplies I was immediately excited by the vivid color of the notebook.  My favorite color is blue.  It was a bonus that coincidentally, I received the most amazing blue leather book to get my system started.

Colors are like music.  They move us.  They can lift us up or bring us down.  All the amazing colors in the ARC system are uplifting.  That’s important motivation!

The insert supplies, such as paper, calendars, task pads, to-do lists, dividers, and page flags slip easily onto the durable rings.  Most importantly, they stay in place.  They are just as easy to remove and reinsert.

I am a tech-addicted mama. Yet, there is still nothing like a good old-fashioned modern notebook system.  I decided to use mine as the Official 24/7 Modern Mom™ website notebook.  I used my tabs to organize the notebook according to page and categories on this site. Then, I changed my mind, deciding on a different organizational setup.  Then, I changed my mind again. Finally, I came up with exactly the right way to organize my notebook to allow me an at-a-glance overview of everything that is happening and needs to happen.

I am a very decided mama, but my life requires me to be flexible.  That’s what I love most about this system.  Okay, that’s what I love second best.  What I love most are the task tabs.  I can jot down a note random-fleeting-thought at any time, and file it into the proper tab, quickly.  So far I have filled up 20 just writing down my wake-me-out-of-a-dead-sleep spontaneous ideas.  I am loving this system.  If I have time, I can enter stuff into one of my tech tools.  If not, I still have everything at my finger tips! It’s true, I could probably live in a Staples store for a week without being tired of it.  I love organization!

Regardless, I would tell you like it is, if there were anything not to love about this system.  While we get many sponsored review requests, and enjoy the perks, we conduct them with integrity. That being said, there is one itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny eye-brow-raiser; The task pad pages should be inserted into smaller bunches than they are bound together.  It’s an easy fix.  Inserting 5-10 pages at a time is ideal.  Other than that, this is a 24/7 Modern Mom™ Approved product!
