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.

This is a great starter set. My only suggestion would be to broaden the selection of paper to sample.

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

Purchase this because it had the compact size included. I knew the other sizes would not go to waste because my sister uses circa. The compact was exactly what I needed. With the included gift card I was able to purchase other compact accessories.

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

I am so happy I ordered this sampling kit! I got TWO circa books AND a $40 gift card, which covers the price of the kit!!! I love seeing if I would use the items and I now know which items I will definitely order again and which ones I won't need in the future. All parts are high quality. I love pulling it out, touching it, writing on the paper and keeping my life easily organized! I have already used my $40 gift card and can't wait for my order to arrive so I can add to my system! I think I will order these as gifts for friends!

One of my employees was curious about my Circa notebook at a recent brainstorm session. To treat her for a job well done, I purchased the starter kit to help keep her organized and turn her into a Levenger lover like me. This is a great gift for employees, friends and family members.

the perfect starting point

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

This kit offers way more functionality than I expected. Gives you all you need to get up to speed with the Circa system and gives you enough variety to be able to see what works for you. If you're on the fence deciding whether or nor Circa is worth the investment take the plunge and try this. It makes it super easy and economical to set up a first class paper system that is out of this world organized. Works for literally every type of application: school, personal projects, time/task management, creating reference books, scrapbooks etc. Love that it gives me two different size notebooks.

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?
