{review & giveaway} Well Planned Day Planner


Here it is homeschool parents.

The 2014-2015 Well Planned Day planner.
Getting this in the mail has become on of my favorite days of the year. Seriously. (We can discuss my issues in another post...)

So I know what you're thinking... We've done this before, just tell me how to enter the giveaway. But there are new features you've got to hear about! Here's a photo run down. Then we will get to the good stuff.

There are full article through the entire planner, including this one that's right at the beginning.


Also new this year: a two page example on how to best utilize the weekly planning pages. I really like this!




And my favorite new feature - an entire page for Notes each month. I find myself scribbling things in the Notes section regularly so having a full page for each month will be very helpful.


At the very end of the planner, there is another bonus. There is an extra month added! Rather than ending at June, this planner includes a month-at-a-glance for July 2015.  There are no school planning pages but, it's July. We should all be at the beach or pool or something, right? Along with the extra July, there are also more Notes pages. 


And all our favorite features are back as well. Check out some pics from inside the planner:


Progress and Attendance Reports for Semesters 1 & 2




 Full articles for each month!


Shopping lists for each month. In my house these are chore lists, to do lists and packing lists as well as shopping lists. I love 'em.


A page of checklists each month for books read, extracurricular plans and monthly budgeting.


It's all here, folks. Every single thing and more that you could need for organizing your home and your homeschool all in one. I didn't even get into the holiday organization, the class plans, household finance page, the report cards, the stay in touch page (with space for tracking family birthdays and anniversaries), teacher schedule, perforated student chore/school checklists and student schedules. It. Is. Loaded.

So you want one right?
Well, even if you don't win the giveaway you can head over here to order your own. 

The giveaway will end on June 3 at 10 pm. The winner will be notified via email. Good luck!

I received a copy of the Well Planned Day planner from Home Educating Family in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own and a good review was not guaranteed. Giveaway is sponsored by Home Educating Family. Post contains affiliate links.

  1. I've never tried this method of planning. I always have a calendar separate from my school planning and tracking; separate again from my lists. I love that its all in one place! This looks wonderful! Thank you for the opportunity to win this!! If I don't, hopefully I'll have enough in the budget to purchase one!!

  10. I love this planner! I don't use the extras all that much, but I do love that they are there for me. I mainly love how organized it keeps me with my homeschooling. I love the daily pages and the month at a glance. And I'm super excited that July's month at a glance will be included at the end this year!

  11. I'd love to be able to have everything i need in one place.

  12. I have to be organized with our day or we quickly gravitate to crafts, baking & nonsense! With our "second set" of little ones I know better now than to leave any schedule to chance. :)

  13. I really like that everything is together in one place. I have a separate homeschool record book from my calendar. Maybe this would eliminate "double" work.

  14. I would love to try this.

  15. The sample of how to use the weekly planning pages will be great - I never fully utilized my planner last year because it just seemed like too much.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would love something like this. This year was kindergarten so it wasn't too difficult. Next year first grade I would like to better plan my week/day.

  17. My life could use some organization. :)

  19. I use the Well Planned day Planner every year! I would love to win one instead of having to buy one. I really like the way the planner is laid out and I love that there is enough room to keep track of all four of my kids work each day. I also like that the planner includes an information page about each child and things like that that make it more than a planner. By the end of the year it is a keepsake for our family to remember the year.

  22. I used this planner for the first time this past school year. The holiday organization/planning pages were my absolute favorite part. I haven't ordered one for this year yet--maybe I'll win one :)

  24. This was my first year homeschooling and I utilized weekly and monthly planning pages I printed from various websites for planning purposes. A planner like this would save me time (and ink). I like the weekly planning pages in addition to the notes page.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have always wanted to use this planner! I usually make my own, but it takes SO much time, and this one is just so snazzy and awesome. I love the weekly planning pages the most, but the extra page for notes is a great addition!

  49. Very much in need of organizational tools for a new homeschooler!

    ReplyDelete
  50. My most useful tool is the daily planning for 4 children

    ReplyDelete
  51. Using this planner would be a completely different approach for me. I'd love to try this and see the benefits with becoming more organized and productive - not just for me but also for my four children.

    ReplyDelete

  54. I've strayed from Well Planned day planners for the last two years but not it's time to go back! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Since I just finished my last quarterly and attendance report, I will say that the attendance section sure helped me TODAY!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I used the Report Cards this year. Not exactly as they are meant to be used, but I wrote notes in them for the kids and gave them their report cards to close out the year!
