I really, really try and stay organized. I have a daily calendar on my desk at work, one in my purse and also one in my at-home office. They all have relevant information on them according to their locations. The work one has work related items on it, purse one is for shopping lists and personal appointments, and the home one is mostly all blog related. Well, although my method makes some sense to me, let me tell you some things definitely get overlapped or missed completely.
This planner is the answer to everything! I consolidated all three of my calenders into this one planner. It is a little bulky for my purse, but fits perfectly into my tote (basically just a bigger purse). The cover can be easily wiped off if needed and snaps shut to contain any loose papers. Awesome!
The fact that it is in a binder and you can leave certain pages in there from year to year, and only replace what you need to, is my favorite part. There is a place to write my goals. (Sometimes we all need a reminder of them, right?) A couple pages for annual reminders – great for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Activity planner pages that would be the best for parents, I think, but I will use them for household chores. Next are the weekly calendar pages for the year. Clearly marked with holidays and adequate space to write for each day. Then, some sheets to jot down notes. Great for on-the-go!
The next section is for contacts – Doctors, friends, family, schools, babysitters, play dates, neighbors, activities, car pool schedules, school schedules – she thought of everything! Detailed sections to write in places to eat, wines to try, wish lists, movies to see, books to read, travel plans, insurance info, a spending tracker, store credits and gift cards list! Includes convenient little stickers to apply for birthdays, trips, appointments and more!
Towards the end there are pouches for receipts, coupons, business cards and any other loose papers you may want to keep handy.
I am truly impressed by this planner. Honestly, I just got a smart phone that has apps for getting organized, but I still prefer an actual planner hands down! This is the ultimate organizer. I recommend this for anyone who would like to be more organized. Especially for families. I think this could be a life saver for hectic kids' events and schedules!
