It was designed by a wife and mother who knew the varying needs a homemaker needs in scheduling her days. Rarely are two of our days alike and this planner offers the flexibility we need as keepers of our homes. Sue Hooley is the designer behind the planner and she has been married for 24 years and is the mother of six children.
How I Use My Planner:
There are seven sections in the planner. The Yearly Section looks ahead to 2016 so you can put any future events on paper so they will not be forgotten as you're planning ahead. In this area I may write future vacation plans or special events like weddings I know the date of ahead of time.
In the Monthly Section the year to date is broken down into months. This is where you get an overview of your month and can write in all your appointments and events coming up.
The Weekly Section is where the road meets the rubber for me. My planning for the week is usually done on Sunday evenings and I appreciate the room allotted for each day's tasks and the overview section to write in any extras that I need to tend to that week. The planner leaves room to put your menu plan in for the day, has an encouraging verse and a monthly calendar overview.
The Tasks List & Projects Sections gives me space to plan for other items I hope to get through in the course of the year and I turn to them as I plan my weeks each Sunday night to see if there is room to get to any additional projects. It may be planning an event for church or getting a closet cleaned out or working on a photo book or writing a letter to a faraway friend.
The Info Section is handy for important numbers and addresses. My doctors, accountant and family and church family members information is kept here handy at my fingertips. It is also helpful when you are meeting a new friend to quickly get their information to enter into your phone at a later time.
Last but not least if the Shopping Section which has perforated shopping lists for every week of the year to use. It is great to jot down your needs as the week moves on and helpful for your menu planning and shopping.
The planner is small enough to fit in your purse or diaper bag (6 x 9 inches) but still big enough to keep lots of information right at your fingertips.
