- As I have said before, I’m a big planner. I love to have everything scheduled out and in it’s place on a calendar in a way that makes sense. It’s calming for me and it’s a necessity in this fun and chaotic life! My days are filled to the brim with soccer, swimming and dance lessons, Parent Club meetings, Preschool Board meetings, doctor’s appointments, play dates, my bunco group and the occasional date with my husband! And as far as planners go, I’ve had EVERYTHING-from the little $3 pocket planners to a leather Franklin Covey with pockets and tabs, and even a brief and very frustrating few months fighting with a calendar application on my phone!
I have found something PERFECT for keeping the “crazy” at bay in your household! It’s the momAgenda Desktop Planner. Let me give you a run-down of the features that make it THE planner for a busy mom:
It has monthly calendars to fill in your upcoming appointments, events and reminders. You can see your whole month planned out on a two page spread!
The section after that gives you a week-by-week view with wonderfully spacious sections for each day. On the bottom half of this page it has spots for the activities of 4 children. Personally, in the time I have been using this fabulous planner I have found it convenient to use one spot for the kids, one for my Sippy Cup Mom writing, one for my business “to-do” list and one for tasks I have for the preschool board position. I feel so spoiled with all of this organized space! I am never settling for a lesser planning system again! And at the very bottom of each day it has two lines for your dinner plan-brilliant!!
The Desktop has a convenient list of holiday dates for the current year, the year previous and for the next two years. I am now reveling in the sheer amount of planning that this amazing little book will allow me to do!
And lists! How I love lists. It has pages for you to make lists of: books, movies, music, fashion (when the average day stops finding me with baby food smeared on my shirt I will use this section), restaurants, wines, health, fitness, gift records (LOVE this one!), entertaining resources, parties and vacation planning.
And in the back of the planner: a FANTASTIC time saving device! A little book that contains an address book, list of medical info and a section to keep track of birthdays and anniversaries. It slides out and into the next year’s momAgenda! You don’t have to spend hours of life transfering all of this info over when you get a planner for the next year. Genius!
A few other things that I love about the Desktop planner is that it has two ribbons to keep your place at the most used sections. I have one in the month view and one in the week-by-week view.
This book is so well made! You really do need something quality if it’s going to last over a year of constant, daily use. The binding is solid the cover is a really pretty and yet durable surface! You can even have it personalized for only $4.95. They come in all of these cute & trendy cover options:
At 7″x 9″x1″, the momAgenda Desktop is a good size, but not too large to fit in all of my favorite purses-even with all of my other essentials!
