I use these notebooks for project management. Great to assign one project per notebook, easy way to keep track of progress, open items, to-dos, owners and due dates all in one place.
Only drawback is that the Monarch size isn't currently available.

This product came with prepunched holes, now it is exclusively in spiral wire form. Once, I could not hold on to these, my co-workers loved them. I was soon was the hub of the "Meeting Notes Pad Supply". That changed when they moved out of pad form. I, and none of my coworkers, want a spiral book of meetings. We want to move our meeting notes to project files, or spots inside the planner. I tried to just punch holes in as I used them, that got old fast. Ultimately, it caused me to rethink the whole 7 ring binder system. If a planner/organizing brand is confident in their product, why would they make it incompatible to use anywhere else? The consumer that seeks better organization in their lives, and thereby adopts a planner system, would automatically shop the different systems from brand to brand. Theme and flow is important to them. You don't need to box them into it with weird gyrations around binder loops. If your product works, we use it. If it is difficult to use, we don't. Apple iTunes has learned this. Recently, they have opened their music files so that you can purchase from Apple and take your music anywhere. I want the Apple guarantee on my music, but I can move it to any player, ..from Macbook to PC to Droid and back again. I prefer an iPod, because of quality, not because they are hammering me out of all other options. Sound Business Thinking on Apple's part. Will Franklin-Covey hole punch their way out of business?
Comments about 2 Pack Classic Better Than a Yellow Pad - Meeting Notes:
I hesitated buying this because it is its own spiral notebook and I'd have to tear out each page and find a way to have it filed in my FC binder. I didn't realize the sheets were perferrated on the left edge to tear out, however, the sheets do not come pre-punched with holes that correspond to the size binder I have. If that were corrected, this item would be 5-star material
I acutally find the ringbound notebook easier to handle in meetings and don't mind the idea of filing them later once the book is full. I love this template for meeting notes and tracking actions/tasks/accountability/due dates. Buying the pad version that was pre-punched to slip into the binder is no longer an options and that's too bad.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
