PLEASE NOTE: Printing errors have resulted in the exclusion of the week of July 17th through July 23, 2016, and there are misprints where October 30 is printed twice (Sunday and Monday) and Sunday Nov. 6th was skipped. Also, Aug. 31 was left off the monthly calendar section. In addition, the number of glossy cardstock report cards in the back of the book has been reduced from four to one.//

A final column provides room for weekly priorities, dinner plans for each night, a weekly organization tip, and two boxes for Saturday and Sunday plans.
The home management section provides mothers with room to list memories of the year, keep a "staying in touch" log, record a monthly budget, detail a weekly household cleaning schedule with room for monthly projects, collect contacts, and more.

Lisa2 Stars Out Of 5Has some good qualities but won't buy againMarch 9, 2017LisaQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I was aware of the misprint before ordering. It's not affecting my review. I only paid half the retail price because I ordered in the middle of the academic year.
Pros: plenty of room for writing in tasks Monday-Friday. Nice little essay every month that is encouraging. Tear-out shopping lists (I don't use them but it's a nice feature). A blank page for notes every month. Many organizational pages in the front that I don't use but I'm sure some families will find them helpful.
Cons: Only a tiny space for weekend planning. Learning, activities, commitments, and chores don't stop for the weekend. I need a lot more room for weekend planning than is alotted in this planner. The paper is thin. Ink bleeds through. We don't use traditional subject divisions so I have to ignore the row headings. Not a huge deal but many families homeschool specifically because traditional schooling is so limiting and boxed in. I don't issue grades or report cards but, if I did, I'd be very disappointed. There is ONE report card (on glossy cardstock) in the back even though this planner claims to accommodate 4 students. Photocopying isn't permitted so having one card for 4 students is a pointless waste of paper. Personally, I find the peachy floral design to be nauseating and it's on every page. The student planner comes in a non-floral edition, I think mom's would like additional choices, too.
I'm going to finish the year with this planner because I paid for it but I'm going to order a different one next year. Probably the "Ultimate Homeschool Planner" by Debra Bell.
Kim2 Stars Out Of 5DisappointedNovember 1, 2016KimQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I purchased this planner in July and paid full price as there was no description about the misprints. I have used The Well Planned Day for the past few years. I noticed the misprint in July/August and was not pleased but figured not a big deal. Unfortunately, I discovered more misprints. I do hope that they don't make the same mistake next year otherwise I will have to find a planner from somewhere else. I like the planners but at $26 dollars I feel that better attention should have been paid to it before it went to print. I would recommend future planners as long as they are correct.
Winyah4 Stars Out Of 5Will purchase again!October 6, 2016WinyahQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4I was aware of the printing errors before I made my purchase, but I made it anyway. It was surprising to me that the planner was listed at full-price even though it contained numerous errors. Still, I thoroughly enjoy my planner! This was the second year I have purchased this planner and plan to purchase it again in the future.
Tiffany5 Stars Out Of 5Still Loyal to Well Planned DaySeptember 30, 2016TiffanyQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I have been using the Well Planned Day Family Homeschool Planners for 5 or 6 years now, and each year I cannot wait to receive my new one. I like nothing better than to sit down with a hot beverage and begin planning out the upcoming school year and family events.
I start at the very beginning of the planner and begin working my way through. The simple forms and examples help me take an objective look at my current habits and the upcoming year. Then I make changes where necessary. Once I have my plans all made out and my thoughts organized, I feel more in-control and ready to tackle my homeschool mom responsibilities.
Two-Page Weekly Layout
I am a record-as-you go kind of mom, so each week, I write down what my students accomplished on each day. The lay-out includes space for assignments in Bible, Math, History, Science, English, and extras of your choice. Next to each assignment I write how much time we spent working. Now my teacher log is all up-to-date.
Once I have recorded individual assignments for the week, I turn to the attendance section and record how many total hours we schooled each day. And at the end of each month, I total the daily hours to see if we are on track to complete the required number of school hours for our state.
Other Features I Love about Well Planned Day Family Homeschool Planner
Address Book I record all the phone numbers for doctors, dentists, and emergency contacts so that I will not lose the numbers and so that someone else will be able to care for the family in my absence.
Holiday Gift Organization Section Here I write down ideas that I have for gifts throughout the year. Then as Christmas approaches, I can track when and where I have ordered each gift and how much it cost.
Teacher Schedule As an analytical person, this is one of my favorite features. It allows me to see where my time is spent and to judge whether I have overbooked myself as a mom.
Student Schedule I love being able to look at the each childs needs and schedule a routine that will work for him or her as an individual.
Homeschool Articles and How-Tos For those days when I feel overwhelmed or not sure what to do, I relax and read some articles from my planner. They offer me practical advice, encouragement, and new ideas.
Weekly Life Hacks Each week there is a new hint on how to manage cleaning, cooking, travel, and life with a family. I look forward to each one so that I can put it into action.
The weekly layouts, attendance records, address book, gift organizer, teacher and student schedules, articles, and life hacks all make Well Planned Day Family Homeschool Planner a must-have for my homeschool. The beautiful design and the organizational tools bring me such calm and confidence.
TeishMaineAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sixth Year Using Well Planned Day!September 29, 2016TeishMaineAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is my 6th year using the Family Homeschool Planner, and I just can't imagine switching to any other school planner!
I tried out a different one for my oldest child's first grade year, and hated it. I looked at another homeschool planner, but it was undated, and I'm not a fan of undated planners at all. I tried The Well Planned Day, and haven't considered switching once!
I like the subjects already being listed because it saves me time. I use erasable colored pens and color code assignments so that I can tell at a glance who is doing what. The attendance and grade sheets for each semester are a huge help when it comes time to write up my semester reports! Having a spot to note my menu plan for the week is nice too. Because there are perforated shopping lists for each month, I can always find something to put my grocery list on because I always know where my planner is! The holiday planning section is great too, though I use the holiday planning section in my On the Go planner instead. But, it's nice that that is included in both planners for those who only need one or the other.
