My fellow planner mamas! I have found planner nirvana!

It's like minimalism, fly lady, my buttoned up planner (that is now only available as an undated planner), ALL got married.

Review:By not me.
http://www.plannerisms.com/2011/07/w...s-planner.html


I was researching the Erin Condren planner...which someone mentioned in another thread and it is REALLY nice...but....
the minimalist in me can.not wait for this bad boy to arrive.

I had to share with you guys, I know how we all lean on our planners and lists, and the like.

Awesome! It's great when you find "the one."

I have the Erin Condren planner and love it. I hope I can swing the cost of it in December when it's time for a new one... might have to ask for it for Christmas!

Looks great! I needed a new one and this seems to hit all of my needs. I ordered one and used coupon code "suburbanmom" for 15% off. Thanks!

Wow, I am jealous. I have never been able to keep a planner, even in school. I used to feel like I was an organized person, but since staying home with my kids I realize that's not true! I like the idea of a household planner, but in reality know that I wouldn't stick with it.

However, I would love some small tips or ideas from you awesomely organized mamas. It would be great to have ideas for things such as scheduling house cleaning and morning routines.

Thanks!

Re: My fellow planner mamas! I have found planner nirvana!

This one has it built in. I have to have the right planner... size wise is my biggie. I am not an organized person, but I live and die by my planner.
I use a planner as a journal, a task to do, a baby book of sorts...

I always have my planner, so when I tell myself to write a progress note on each kid every month...now that is more like every three months but still. And I write cute things on the days they do them...like R said "RRRrrrrr" and played peek a boo with Daddy. Well that says something to many, but to a mama it brings it all back to me! At the doctors office with the flu- its scheduled- I add in the diagnosis, and there it is with a big he was limp for 8 hours- scared me to death. Then he was up building legos...

I dont have any tips, thebuttoned up calendar is all I have been able to stick with- but now they took the dates out- not cool for the seriously disorganized like me, imho.

I have to have a small thin planner, spiral or bound...and I really really like one week on either one or two pages, with an area for notes.

As far as scheduling, this planner has a fly lady like system built in- but I have used a super flipper in the past, and it worked well too.

I was just wondering if any of you planner mamas had tried a "Do It All" planner? It seems like it has some similar features, but less expensive.

I like it so far, but I'm looking forward to January, when they've made a few tweaks in the book that will work better for me - wider daily writing area, fewer notes pages. I do like the housekeeping and daily/weekly/monthly goals part, even if I haven't been great about doing all of them!
