It is fantastic. It is worth paying 26 bucks plus shipping to help organize the confusion of my life. Organization truly does create peace and gives you a sense of satisfaction that you are maximizing your time and space for the best possible homeschooling experience.
Some things I would like to be different.
1. Thicker pages... these bleed though with use of a good pen, also; I will be consulting this spiral bound beauty about a thousand times a day in 2015 so I'd like it to be sturdy and hold up to the wear.
2. I'd like a meal planner and a room for chore planning, you know.. the practical stuff.
3. I wish the weekly planner pages were behind each month instead of clustered together after the monthly planner pages, in other words you have 12 monthly planning pages and 52 weekly planning pages, but I'd like to see it arranged as 1 monthly planning page and then 5 weekly planning pages...
4. I would like the monthly planning pages to include tabs for easy finding... I purchased some at Walmart
These are improvements I'd like to see, but I DO love this planner and would buy it again and highly recommend it, it was the only one I could find that would allow me to enter my own months. My school year starts in Jan and ends in Dec. not like public school, we go year round.
Thank you for this planner it really is wonderful.. love the folder in the front, more of those would be good too... for check lists and such...
I purchased this item for the second year, but was disappointed to see the material of the cover design has changed from last year. It seems to just be glossy coated card stock and I'm concerned that it may not be sturdy enough to last throughout the school year. Last year the cover seemed to be a heavier matte stock that had more a feel of plastic to it. The contents have remained the same so it is still a good planner...just not sure it is worth the money with the change in the durable cover stock.
This is my second year using this planner, and it's the best one I've found. There is plenty of room to keep track of all 6 of my children. I like that it encourages prayer and hospitality. It also helps me keep track of long term goals and offers encouraging scriptures. The year, month, week process had been great for our family.
This is my second year using this and I will make sure that this is one of the first books I buy each year! We use it for our family of four and for tracking daily assignments at home. I haven't missed a thing yet by keeping myself organized using the easy to read planner. Thank you!
I always prided myself on being focused and organized but with three girls, homeschooling, working with young people, young moms, and refugees in in our church I couldn't set priorities.
Since I am very visual, seeing ALL the church, life, and school activities laid out month by month made it plain that I had to prune ruthlessly. The Lord used it to show me that if I just listened to Him I would have more energy for what He wants me to be doing, and be able to be "all here" in each activity instead of feeling pulled every which way all the time, and never feeling like I was giving my best to anything.
Also, it provides a framework for prayerfully setting goals with my husband for our family and each individual. These templates brought into focus areas where we weren't meeting our girls needs for training, discipline, and accountability. We had read these things before but this planner brought it all together for us. Thank you, Debra Bell!!
