The February 2023 Cloth & Paper theme was Time Blocking and came with a mind mapping insert, time blocking notebook, and more. If you are new to this box then know that they have a few different subscription options, and you can choose planner sizes based on the planner you use at home or work. This is a review of their Penspiration AND Planning + Stationery combo, which is $54.99 a month and drops to as low as $49.99 a month when you choose the 6-month term. (Please note that the picture above is of BOTH boxes combined!)

Planning + Stationery Box
A handy card showed each item in the box.
Here’s everything in the Planning & Stationery Box!
Clear Strategy Dashboard Duo There were two dashboards for your layering pleasure. The one on the left is printed on vellum so you can see the dashboard on the right, which is on cardstock. These work well to help separate your planner into sections.
Weekly Time Block Notebook The hero item of this month’s box is this huge notebook, it has 104 pages! I even counted them, since the website unboxing blog said 52, but after I got to 52 I could see there was a lot more left, so this should be good for the next 2 years!
Mind Mapping Insert The insert for this month is for mind mapping, a way to help visualize steps instead of trying to keep them inside your head. There are 18 pages and I appreciate that the last page had an illustration of how this might look on paper.
Diagonal Pocket Folder Set There are 6 plastic folders in this set and they should come in handy for holding my stickers, cards, and more. These are sized to fit in my planner.
Priorities Notepad Sometimes we have a lot on our to-do lists and we need to figure out which items need done NOW and which can wait a while and this pad can help get those tasks back on track. It’s 5″ x 3.5″.
Place for Everything JC and Small Pleasures JC are decorative cards that could be placed in the pocket folders shown above or in another plastic holder, or possibly clipped inside a planner. The April Pop-Up Calendar has slots that fit together so the calendar can sit upright on a desk.
Time Block Stickers Vol. 1 can be used in the time block notebook shown earlier in this post. It looks like there are 4 different sizes and four different colors.
Here’s everything in the Penspiration Box!
On the left is the Pen Test Sheet, which I will show later in the review. On the right is the Journaling Prompt.
The Undated Calendar Card can be filled in with the month and used however you like.
Time Block Sticky Notes This month the sticky notes are matte and like the Planning & Stationery Box, it’s related to time blocking.
Set of Pens All of the info for the pens can be found at the Cloth & Paper Unboxing Blog on their website. The three writing pens have 0.5mm nibs, black ink, and retractable nibs.
This month Cloth & Paper included a huge notebook to be used for time-blocking, which they touched on in a box sometime last year. They also sent a mind mapping insert, which is a new concept for me. The pens are in heavy use, I have them everywhere including my purse, my fridge, my table, my desk, and more! I’m also excited about the plastic sleeves, they will fit perfectly in my planner!
