The Woman's Success Address Book

As promised, here is my review of The Woman's Success Address Book. Many thanks to The Success Choice for generously sending me this address book as a sample to review!

As you may have guessed from my post about the corresponding Woman's Success Planner (which is way more than just a planner), this is way more than just an address book! It is a reference and log that is super-slim and portable enough to take everywhere.  You can use this to accompany any planner, or on its own.

I'll walk you through the book. You can also see images of the pages on The Success Choice website's Address Book product page.

The cover is laminated cardstock for durability. The paper in the Address Book is the same spectacular archival recycled paper as is in The Woman's Success Planners.  It takes liquid inks especially well, and there is no show-through to the other side of the paper so you can fill each page with information.

Inside the front cover there is a very handy list of Commonly Misspelled Words.

The first page has Frequent or Emergency Contacts, reference info like your printer ink cartridge refill info, furnace filter, tire size and anything else you might want as a reference.  Below that is a place to write Loss Recovery contact info for credit cards, phone, utilities etc.  (Click on any of the photos for a larger view.)
The back cover of the book states that the Address Book is specifically designed NOT to ask for information that could lead to identity theft.

The next page has space to record Rewards Programs numbers, and Key Personal Information like sizes and birthdates.

The next four pages have Detailed Info for individual members of your family. This could be school information, employee records, medical info like checkups and vaccines, etc.

Next is the A-Z contacts section. The pages have spaces to record each contact's name, relation (which I think is a wonderful addition), address, phone numbers of all types, email, IM ID, website or blog, birthday and anniversary, and notes on that person.
After the A-Z section there is a page for annual reminders for recurring things like birthdays and anniversaries, insurance payments due, annual medical checks and anything else that happens in the same month every year.
Next are two pages of Gift Ideas with space to write the person's name, list gift ideas and record the date the gift was given.
Next is a Vehicle Repair Log to record maintenance and repair on two vehicles with space to record the work done, cost, odometer reading at the time of repair, and the date the work was done.

Next are three pages you can customize to suit your own needs.
There is a page of Books to Read with a space to note comments.
The last page has list areas for Movies to See, Restaurants with space for their phone numbers, Date Night Ideas and Vacation Ideas.  Inside the back cover there is a Conversions table (which you know I love).
This Address Book/ reference/ records book packs a ton of information into a very slim and portable book. It is 8 1/2 by 5 inches, and just 1/8 of an inch thick so it can go absolutely everywhere with you for easy reference and recording.

So much thought has gone into this book, all the way down to the cover color which looks great with all the colors of the planners.

It is designed to slip into the leather covers along with your planner, or used on its own.

Thanks again to The Success Choice for sending me this excellent address book/ reference log!


  1. Very cool! I love that they have "hair stylist" under the emergency contacts. How true! It looks like it has a lot of good info. I will incorporate some of this into my Filo!

  2. This looks like a really good idea, although I find the fact that they call it an 'address book' a bit strange and misleading! It's clear from your review that it's much more than that.
