Circa Annotation 14 Ruled Notebook
I hate using spiral-bound notebooks to take notes for class. I've always wished that I could move the pages around, and I get really irritated when I have those leftover sheets at the end of a notebook - they're not enough for another class the next quarter, but it's enough that I wished I could take them out and add them on to a new notebook so that it's not a waste.
I stumbled upon Levenger notebooks as I was searching for a solution to this problem. With this notebook, I can do everything that I wished I could do with regular notebooks! I can even keep all of my notes in one notebook, as I just add blank pages whenever I run out of space for a particular subject.
Even better is their deal for this particular notebook - buy two and get them both for a cheaper price. I love it.

I've been wanting one of these for about 5 years; just being out of college, I coudn't justify the expense. Finally, I asked for it for my birthday.
I can't believe I spent the first 5 professional years of my life without it! I coordinate events, staffing, budgeting and nothing else has been able to keep me organized.

Ideal for teaching kindergarten!
(I'm writing this review for my Mom:) I teach kindergarten, and every day I need a full page for each student, as I write out notes/lesson plans/etc. about the child. The Circa system and the annotation margin are so incredibly helpful, as I can write the child's name in the annotation margin (and make other notes as necessary in the margin as well), and I write the day's lessons/accomplishments in the ruled portion. What's so helpful about the Circa page design is that I can pull out an individual page and take it to a meeting, then put it back into the notebook when I'm done. I just love it!

Great Project Organization
This is the best system I've ever found for project management. When one phase of a project outgrows the main notebook, I just create a new one.
I use the tab dividers as well, and have a portable punch at work so I can add non-Circa papers to the notebooks.
I also customize covers using Microsoft Publisher and printing them on 32-pound presentation paper for durability.
I keep all my notebooks in sorters on my credenza so they're at hand.

Great for organization
I have been searching for a way to keep notes for multiple accounts in one place but didn't like the traditional notebook format. The ability to take pages out of the Circa notebook, add pages in, and rearrange as needed really make this the best possible option in terms of functionality. Overall a high quality product and after only a brief time using, I am very happy with how all of my notes are in one place and easy to take with me - I feel so much more organized than before. I would definitely recommend this to my coworkers.

Perfect solution for college students
I recently started college, and I've found the Circa notebooks to be exactly what I need to keep track of my notes and assignments. I have one for each class, and I use the Circa punch to add in the syllabus and handouts for each class. The annotation ruled style helps make my notes very clear. I will definitely continue using Circa throughout college!

I couldn't work without it
I've been using my Circa for a year now, and I couldn't work without it. I use it as a combination planner/note taker, and I love that it can expand as needed. I also love all the extras for it.
I thought that the refills seemed expensive, until I totalled up what I was spending on medium-quality spiral notebooks. The Circa system cost about the same per-page, with better quality paper and much better functionality. The leather covers will be my next splurge!
