The Well Planned Day, Planners



If you have been reading my blog for very long, you have probably noticed, I am a planner! I came across the planner last year, and purchased it. I was HIGHLY impressed with it. Not only do I love the format, layout of the planner pages themselves, but I love the graphics and special added features. It's cute, and that makes me want to look at it and use it... honestly!!!



I love reading the articles included in it. I also signed up to get a free THE HOME EDUCATING FAMILY MAGAZINE. I couldn't put it down, and I still haven't finished reading and re-reading to my hearts content.

I have also started using this planner as my daily planner. I use the top boxes in the colums for our family studies. Things I need to plan, and keep track of. I also use it for our opening time, and for notes about things I need to finish for the A's school work. Then I use the bottom boxes for a to-do list for each day. I love having my day planner right there with my homeschool planner, it helps me remember what we are doing, where we are going, and keeping al my ducks in line, so to speak. Along with that it has a dinner menu planner on the side of each weeks schedule. I really only plan our dinner schedule, so I love that. Breakfast is typically a hot cereal, such as oatmeal. Lunch is leftovers, beans {such as nachos, burritos, or such}, or most typically it's sandwiches and the typical sides we have around.
This planner has Mommy notes, schedules pages, record keeping sheets... the works.
Along with that there are places to plan and create a year's school schedule. I use this "attendance" area to keep track of the days, we are doing school. I don't have to keep attendance, grades or records where I live, yes it is a blessing. I simply like to keep some simple records, for my minds sake, and well... just in case. Along with that, I will be starting to put together a portfolio for Noble. He is getting to a higher level of education, and I feel it is probably a smart thing to do.

  1. Can I share this with our group? Some ladies are struggling quite a bit and could use many ideas from which to choose.

  2. Oh YES!! You can see sample pages on the website, along with many other great reviews. I also did a google search before I bought the first one, and found some nice reviews on other blogs too...
