First, I have to confess that I have silently lusted after the Circa system for many years, but for whatever reason never got one for myself. A friend gave me a Circa Junior for Christmas, however, and I immediately wanted MORE! This Sampling Kit gave me a taste of the other sizes and accessories, and I immediately began experimenting with various configurations. I developed a unique information indexing / action method I used with spiral notebooks, and am finding it even easier to use with the Circa system. ***Example in the picture*** I strongly recommend this Sampling Kit as a quick start for those new to Circa, and as a convenient way for existing Circa users to experiment with new sizes and formats.

I bought the starter kit to evaluate the possible use of the Circa system both for myself at work and my daughter in high school.
The Good:
- The organizational capabilities are phenomenal.
- The Variety of inserts available is truly staggering.
- The usability for someone with ADHD (both my daughter and I) is outstanding.
- The ability to pull from a Master notebook used to take notes, and transfer them to subject specific notebooks is a godsend.

The bad:
- The paper is _not_ fountain pen friendly, the only pen that was legible was one with an Extra fine nib.
- The paper feels like it is made from a similar stock as that used to make comment cards/reply cards, etc.
- The paper issue is a major problem, as I write with a fountain pen daily. I had read older reviews of the Circa notebooks that said they were FP friendly.

Overall I like the system, and will purchase components for my daughter to use, but I will not be able to use the Levenger paper stock for myself. I may use the components with some 32# stock printed with similar templates (I already use a modified Cornell system for my notes at work).

If you are using ball point pens or gel pens, then the Circa could easily be all fives. If you use a FP, it drops to between a 3 and 4.

Excellent for multi subject, multi project, multi job notes

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

I use this product for task lists and To Do's that are in process of getting done. The different size pages are perfect for when I just want to write down a small reminder and the lists are perfect to check off and add the date to be completed by. I only gave four stars for style because the colors are limited to one-light blue. BUT that gives me the option to customize with my paint sharpies? Perfect for school, home, work and work and work- I use these for all . I bought one for myself and one as a gift- that I am pondering keeping.

Started my Circa Obsession...

By 

from SF Bay Area

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

It took me way too long to order this, but I'm glad I finally did. It's a great way to try out the Circa system, and the extra gift card is a prefect bonus. I used it to purchase the smooth silver notebook and dot grid paper (which unfortunately has since been discontinued.... Please bring it back!!). I still use all of the provided accessories.
The only thing I would change is adding different paper options. I don't really use the annotation pages and it would be nice to have received this with paper I'd use more often.
Overall this kit is a prefect introduction to the Circa system and I have ordered many other add-ons since. I am now obsessed with the system and will likely stay a loyal customer of Levenger.

Don't Think Twice---Get yours TODAY!!

By 

from Bloomfield Hills, MI

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

Gift yourself a Free Gift!! Seriously, if you are at all intrigued by the Circa system, you have to try this. When I received my kit, I was so mad at myself for waiting so long to order this kit! Walk, don't run, to get yours!

I have been using Franklin-Covey calendars since 1993 and lately found myself resenting that every time I changed sizes, I would end up with several years-worth of unused and unusable supplies that would eventually get lost/tossed out. Sensing this was going to be another size-changing-year and planning to downsize, I fretted over the thought of having to start at square one supply-wise with Franklin.

I had seen the Circa system a year ago (after buying my Franklin for the year) and was intrigued that the same forms could be used in different sized calendars/notebooks. No waste, right? But I had no idea what size would fit me this year. So, I finally bought the Sampler and couldn't be more thrilled by the value!

You receive enough materials to end up with BOTH a complete Letter-sized Notebook and a Junior-sized Notebook, each with hard translucent covers, full set of discs, 1 tab divider, 5 to do sheets, and 20 lined sheets. In addition, there is a Divider w Pocket (Junior size but I use in Letter to hold stamps), 4 page Finder Tabs(Letter), 10 ruled sheets(Compact-but I placed some in Junior & Letter Notebooks) and a Task pad (fits all sizes).

Biggest surprise of all? After sampling the two sizes, I have decided to not only say goodbye to Franklin, but also switch up to a letter-sized calendar. The best part is that now I get to use my gift card!!

A great introduction to Circa

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

I started using Circa years ago, but recently purchased this Circa sampling kit because I needed some new notebook covers. The sampling kit is a great buy for new Circa users and old ones alike. The package includes one letter-sized and one junior cover, discs, and samples of paper to fit both notebooks. And did I mention the $40 gift card for future purchases?

Great introduction to the Circa system

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

A great selection of various Circa products and sizes so you can determine which size works best for you and which style of paper/disc size you lik. The best thing about it is the $40 Circa gift card that comes with it; rendering it free if you order additional paper, planners or one of their quality foldover notebooks. The Circa paper is high quality and my fountain and gel pens do not bleed through and the ability to move around pages is perfect. I use this product for business as well as my organizing my busy household.

Nicely put together kit

By

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

I came to know about Levenger from an audiobook - "Get organized the clear and simple way". Glad I came across this sampling kit with a GC. It made it an easy decision for me to try it. I was new to this Circa disc system and had to see it to believe it. It works!! The pages turn over the disc easily and the pages do stay intact even when writing with the covers folded over. The flexibility the circa disc offers in moving the pages is AMAZING without the bulk of the 3 ring binder. I really liked this kit and got a few. It is of good quality and the packaging was neat. It comes with covers and discs in 2 useful sizes and other useful accessories too. I found the junior size handy and use it as a journal. I have filled up the pages so fast that I also got the Circa Leverage Punch to add more pages. Letter size is good for planners/calendar, notes. It is pretty much a 3 ring binder replacement. I gave 4 stars for style, some colors will be nice. A sample of a few of those fancy discs will help. I really like this kit and would definitely recommend it!

Appreciate Circa even more now!

By

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

I've used Circa for a while now, and Liked it a lot. I recently started a new job where I have to deal with 5 different committees on a regular basis, and my appreciation for Circa has grown tremendously. If I'm at a committee meeting and something comes up that is relevant to another committee, I can make notes on a separate page, then move it to the appropriate notebook later. I carry a compact notebook all the time, so I can take notes on the go and put them into the correct notebook later. Easy to use, great quality, and really helps me stay organized!

Organize all the things

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

This pack is the equivalent of a drug dealer giving away free samples. Do not buy unless your income can support a nasty office supply habit.

If your income can exceed your habit, treat yo' self!

I've never been more organized, moving from meeting to meeting and project to project, all capably handled by the Levenger circa system, tabbed, divided and rock and rolled. Complicated negotiations, I an freely move between multiple what-if scenarios, and still have the extra notebook capacity for a doodle in the margin. Highly recommended.

Generous Sample Kit!

By 

from Upstate New York

Comments about Levenger Circa Simply Irresistible Sampling Kit Includes a $40 Gift Card:

I've been looking for a paper/book system for a long time that was customizable, durable and user friendly. Circa is it! The sampler kit is enough to get a taste of which aspects of the system will be work best for you. The 4 stars for function are only because it is a sampler kit, so after deciding what features I liked, I used the $40 gift card to fill in the functionality gaps expected for a sampler kit.
I have told everyone about this great product and several have ordered their own kits.
