Review and giveaway: The Well Planned Day homeschool organizer

May 14, 2014

UPDATE: The winner is comment #108, Danalee. Thanks to all who entered!

Before I begin this review, I need to admit my bias: I LOVE planners. Love them. A good planner makes me feel like my life is about to become organized and streamlined. I’m a Type A person, and I love having written schedules, budget spreadsheets, etc. So when I saw the Well Planned Day homeschool organizer I knew I would love it…and I do! This fall will start our first year homeschooling my oldest daughter, while my youngest will be in public school for Kindergarten, so we have a lot of scheduling to do, and this planner will really be a lifesaver. (If you’re interested in why we’re homeschooling, this post echos my reasons pretty well.)

The Well Planned Day has an overview for each month, as shown above, and then each day is broken down into a list format so you can list the subjects you’re planning to cover that day and record attendance. I like how each month has a cut-out tab for easy flipping, and there are really interesting articles on family management and education for those moments when you find yourself stuck somewhere with nothing to read! There are tear-out shopping lists for each month, and there are report cards printed on cardstock for your children to keep. There are quotes from famous theologians, and there are weekly catechism notes. I cannot think of anything this planner doesn’t provide! Plus, it’s absolutely gorgeous!

 

Here are the features:

  • Spiral Bound with Three Hole Drilled to Fit into Binders
  • Over 264 Full Color Pages
  • Full Year Planner: July 2014 – June 2015
  • Home Management with weekly cleaning schedule, monthly projects, greeting card registry, and monthly budgeting.
  • Holiday Organization Section: Greeting card registry, activities and event schedules, gift giving, around town shopping, and internet shopping.
  • Organize and plan for up to 4 children in one convenient book.
  • Four Student Class Plans: Schedule each student’s class assignments.
  • Four Student Time Schedules: Track each day by the hour.
  • Weekly Schedule: Organize your week with class assignments, weekly priorities, prayer requests, dinner menu, and notes.
  • Month at a Glance: Plan field trips, enrichment activities and books to read
  • Semester Attendance & Progress Reports
  • Perforated Report Cards
  • Menu Planning: Plan weekly meals and conveniently shop with perforated shopping lists.
  • Family Worship: Read through the Bible in a year.
  • Insightful homeschool articles and tips to inspire you throughout the year.
  • and much more….

You can actually flip through images of the entire 2014-2015 planner here so you can see just how fantastic it is!

While this planner is technically for homeschooling families, it would adapt very easily to public school families as well.

You can purchase the Well Planned Day homeschool organizer for $26.95 here. I am sure you’ll love it as much as I do!

You can also save 30% on planner bundles, including the Large Family bundle, the College Prep bundle, the Busy Mom bundle and more!

    I would say I am both. There are certain aspects of my life that I like to be very organised for. But other things I like to go with the flow for. Generally, I need to have all my projects organised in a planner but the other occurrences in my life can happen naturally!
