2015 POCKET ORGANIZER Partial PRODUCT RECALL — oops – we used a new binding company this year and we’ve been noticing some poor quality bindings for the pocket sized books (only) — it seems like about 5% of them have a gap in the binding so that one or 2 pages (usually in the first 16 pages of the book) might fall out. If you get a defective one, we are super sorry and we can send you a replacement if necessary.  We will credit stores for any defective organizers we mistakenly sent them before we noticed the problem.  Look at the ends of it when making your selection and don’t buy anything that looks like it has a gap in the binding.
Also, PLEASE bring us your spare rubber bands.
