Circa Starter Kit
Several of my co-workers use the Circa notebook and I was very interested in starting my own. This was a great value to someone just getting started with Levenger.
I am now ready to purchase more paper and bigger rings.

Psst! Pass it on - Circa is Great!
I have used Circa for years! In the last large company I was in I started a huge trend for everyone to change from Franklin-Covey binders to Circa. Now I am a Consultant and I just bought 4 of these for a client who wanted to create a system for all of their information after seeing my Circa in action.

after I'd tried everything under the sun to help me organize, my sister recommended Circa and I have been thrilled ever since. It can be as simple or as complicated as you like.
It really helps me. I have the junior size because it's portable for traveling. I also now have a second one which is just for writing. The starter kit gives a great overview of what you can do--but be careful, you'll want everything!!!

A New Start
I have been a devoted user of paper systems. LOVE them but they have always had limits. I have been looking at this system for a while and the cost is what kept me from making the jump in. This Circa starter kit gave me the chance to try the system with a min investment. I FELL IN LOVE! I ordered this and the Twighlight discs. I love color and pretty things and was unhappy with the plain look of the kit. The outside covers are nice and hevy and translucent. I scrapbook so I took some pretty paper that attached it to blank pages right inside the covers. Gives me the fashion I want and keeps my pages private. The paper is nice, I was able to write with bright colored pens and a fountain pen, no bleeding! I was able to write on both sides. I liked being able to arrange and rearrange as I wanted or needed to. This system with grow and change with me. For those who say well what if I decide to invest in a nicer cover, this will go to waste. Don't worry, use the starter notebook as your storage for stuff you do not need in you everyday notebook but you are not ready to get rid of. I gave the review a 3 star rating for style only because it was plain ... however, just the fact that you are binding with discs is pretty cool. Over all this is a wonderful way to get into the system or introduce someone to it.

Not all that for Fountain Pen users
I bought the sample pack to try out before purchasing a more expensive notebook and all the extras. I know that paper can be a big deal for those of us who prefer fountain pens. I find the Circa paper to be more "porous" than it should be for good fountain pen writing. True, it is "smooth" to write on, but other papers, like Clairfontaine makes, for example, are much better for fountain pens. My fine point pen drops too much ink on this paper, and if I write slowly, it looks like a medium or larger nib was used. It's not terrible or anything, but I had hoped the paper quality would be at least as good as the journals I'm using right now, which were made in Italy. I had so hoped this system would work for me.

Circa Starter Kit
I received the Circa Starter kit as the 4000 fan on Facebook. What fun! I really like the design of the Circa notebook. I like that the cover and pages can be flipped to the back and it will lay flat. The paper is great. As a person who collects and uses fountain pens, Circa paper is very pen friendly - whether its a ballpoint, rollerball or fountain pen. I like the circa disks, rather than a regular 3-ring binder. Its nice to be able to shift pages around as when needed. I would suggest a Circa notebook to anyone.

So i went ahead and got the starter kit to check out circa for myself...and it's amazing. I always have problems with pages sticking and tearing out of my 3 ring binders, making for quite a hassle in keeping my notes organized. This product is truly amazing. Hoping to stock up on paper and invest in a cover later.

Great Product for Student
My uncle has used Lavenger for years at his work and when I started college I asked him if he had any I could use. He had 2 and I used them for my four classes (2 classes per circa notebook). These are the perfect systems for any college student. I ordered myself the letter sized starter kit and plan to order at least 2 more. I will continue using Lavenger as my transition into the working world. Absolutly worth every dollar!

First time user
After many years of using another day planner system I thought I would try the Circa. I ordered the sample kit and fell in love with it. The day planner pages work great, enough room to jot notes on the daily space and the To Do List pages are easy to keep projects and daily memos at my fingertips. What really sold it for me was the ease of adding and removing pages, and being able to flip the cover over completely to get out of the way if necessary. What a great comcept. I ordered the lovely red leather covers to go with my red St. Tropez tote and it looks professional and stylish. The icing on this professional cake were the little micro note cards I added to my purchase on a whim. Wonderful for jotting a quick note in a meeting to pass to a colleague. Levenger has a new Circa believer and user.
