I don't know about you, but I have tried a few day planners since at least my college years. I would start off really excited to get organized and not forget an appointment and then carrying around this big planner or the cover would get ripped off or something would get spilled all over it and that would be the end.
Flash forward to now. I'm a SAHM to 3 kids. That doesn't mean I am always home and we have nothing to do. So I have my big calendar on the fridge that I use to keep pretty good track of things when I remember to take it down so I can write on it. I needed something more. Something I could keep on the counter next to the phone that wouldn't be ruined if someone spilled juice. I needed something that I could toss in my bag on my way to school meetings or appointments, so I could immediately write down future events and it wouldn't get ruined in my bag. Enter the planners from Dotmine Group.
When you first open up the planner the first 2 pages are made from heavy card stock that read Fall and Winter 2009 Schedule. In the back of the planner there are two more pages for Spring and Summer 2009 Schedules. This is a great spot to color code your family's schedule that repeats itself weekly such as, sports, music lessons, ect.
At the end of the weekly/monthly planner pages are some fun extras! There are additional pages for you to write important numbers for coaches, dentists, banks, ect. A place for all those numbers you are always having to look up. There are also a few pages to use as a mini-address book as well. There is also a sheet for babysitters - a spot to write your address and important numbers. Finally there is a sheet of stickers you can use to mark important dates on your monthly planner sheets.
I love using this planner daily. There is only one thing I wish the planner had and that's an elastic cord so I could easily open to the week without having to search. I think that's a very small deal though because the rest of the planner is phenominal!
