I am finding this difficult to use and don't like the lay-out. I had read great reviews so I was most excited to use but I'm now disappointed that I bought it. I don't like that the monthly calendars are so far removed from weekly pages, as well as limited space to write notes. I won't be purchasing again.
This planner was a WONDERFUL investment! The "week in review" section was an excellent tool to help me look back over the previous week and see the "victories"~ however small~ in the midst of the sometimes stressful days! The setting goals section, complete with verses and encouraging quotes, was a great way to think and pray through what was really important to accomplish in the next week! I would highly recommend this planner to any busy, homeschool mom!
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.
