I'm a homeschooling mom of 3 kids, a doula/childbirth educator, a writer, AND help with record-keeping in the Spring for our school's Track & Field team... This planner helped me juggle it all!
I'm not an organized person by nature and, though I have a smartphone, I NEED to use a real paper & pen to write things down so I don't forget. While it is a tad pricey, I will most definitely be purchasing it again for next school year because I appreciated the space for writing and ease of the layout.
I absolutely love this planner! It was the first that I used, and I was very impressed with the layout, the ability to use it with multiple students on different levels, and the customizable dating. We have a number of last-minute schedule changes and the planner paper stands up well to erasing & rewriting our plan. My favorite part of this planner is the weekly page for memorable moments and evidences of grace. I am so happy that I can keep a mini-journal of our week, which encourages me to reflect and focus on all of our blessings, achievements, and answered prayers. Out of curiosity, I switched to another (very well-reviewed and popular) planner for a year. While I was able to make it work for our year, I was disappointed. In my opinion, the "other" planner does not live up to the hype. So, I switched back! And I am so glad I did! This planner has been a blessing to me, to my family and to our homeschool!
In the past, this planner would have been wonderful. But now that I've got a smartphone and my laptop, I found that the features of this planner just weren't getting used by me. I fill out the events in the weekly planner, but I forget to refer to them. I love the idea of it, but it just wasn't practical for me. :^(
