It’s no secret that I’m completely obsessed with office supplies. I can just wander around Staples for hours looking at everything, and when I redid my home office earlier this year, I enjoyed picking out each individual item. When Martha Stewart and Avery announced their partnership for office supplies available exclusively at Staples, I stalked my local Staples waiting for them to arrive. I am loving the bright colors and appearance of these new products, in addition to the fabulous functionality of them.
When the products were first introduced, there were no actual calendars with planners per se, instead, you could purchase separate calendar inserts to go into the binders. But, that’s all changed, as the Martha Stewart Home Office line now includes calendars and planners! These latest products have the same style and functionality as the original line, and like the original line, are exclusively available at Staples.
There are currently several calendars and planners available:
This pocket calendar includes monthly pages for December 2012 through January 2015, a listing of holidays through 2017, and pages for special dates, notes, and contacts. It’s not so much of a planner as a calendar reference, and it’s lightweight and small enough to just toss in your purse.
The wirebound calendar is more of a calendar with planner, and includes weekly and monthly pages for the year. It’s also a nice size – small enough to carry around but big enough that you can write all of your important meetings and plans in it. It also includes tips on how to use it, and pages for special dates, notes, and contacts as well as personal reference and holiday listings.
The Perfect-Bound Planning Calendar is a nice middle ground. It’s a small bound book with a separate, removable essential date listing book. It includes weekly and monthly pages, and has two ribbon markers.
You can also use other items from the Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ line to work with the calendars and planners, including the teardrop shaped removable color coded labels – which I love. You can find everything exclusively at Staples.
Win it! I have a Pink 2013 Perfect Bound Planning Calendar and set of Removable Color-Coding Labels for one Mom’s Favorite Stuff reader. Please enter via the Rafflecopter.
