Carpe Diem by Simple Stories - A5 Organiser - Review

Last week we looked at the Carpe Diem Personal size planner boxed set. It is now time to look at the Carpe Diem A5 planner boxed set.

Like the personal size the A5 is available in a variety of sizes and colours.

The planner comes in a presentation style box with a clear lid (not shown here)

The reverse side of the box shows the full contents of the planner.

The A5 lays perfectly flat on opening it. It is fitted with 30mm internal diameter rings in a gold finish.  This gives the organiser plenty of capacity on the rings over and above the provided inserts.

The inside front cover features four card pockets of differing heights with a full height vertical slip pocket behind the card pockets.

On the rear inside cover is a notepad slot with a full height vertical slip pocket.

The month tabbed dividers come with different colourful designs on their front side.  

The inserts are true ISO A5 in size at 148 mm by 210 mm. 

Each month starts with a page for reminders and goals as well as birthdays etc

The week per view diary pages are undated with the week starting on a Monday. The design is simple and straight forward giving the owner plenty of scope to decorate the page if they so wish to do so. 

The month per view diary does have some decoration at the top of the page, but it doesn't intrude in to the useful large boxes for each day. There is a lined notes column on the edge of the right hand page, this is useful for recording information or noting down reminders.

A full notes page finishes off the monthly pages.

The boxed set is also supplied with three sheets of stickers of various designs to use in the planner.

Simple Stories products are sold world wide through a range of sellers. You can find your local one using the Store Locator on their website.

Thank you to Simple Stories for supplying the sample boxed set.

  1. I got a persimon A5 Carpe Diem and I found that the ring mecanism seem not to be attached to the back. When one pull the ring up gently you can see the inner leather following. I am affraid it will rip or wear too fast with the weight of the inserts. Especially since it can accommodate quite a numper of pages... What do you think of it?
