Have you tried THIS planner?

So I know that in the age of technology, many of us have stopped using most forms of paper. We used to write notes, now we send texts, we used to mail cards, now we post "Happy Birthday" to a friends Facebook page. Technology takes less effort, and requires less thought. However, it also takes away the interaction and the need to communicate face to face.

Recently I was given the opportunity to review a planner by a company called dotmine, who uses those right? But it isn't really like the trapper keeper style, it more less is simple like a notebook. I have seen moms that carry around a notebook trying to keep track of parties, soccer games, dance lesson, etc, and really it's the same kind of thing, just much more organized.

It really looks more like a notebook!

So here is how we decided to do it. If one of us knows of something that is coming up, dinner with a boss from work, sleep over at a friends, soccer game, you name it, each member writes it in the book. My nine year old doesn't yet have a cell phone (and as far as I am concerned won't until he can pay for it himself), but hubby and I do. So all of the events that we have planned out, for as long out as we know go into the planner, and then hubby and I can add each others to the calender on our phone. This way there is communication between us, and our oldest too.

It also comes with these cute stickers to make something stand out, such as a holiday, dentist appointment, and even stickers to remind you of your self breast exam (promoting women's health is awesome!).

This planner retails for $18.99 and includes:

  • 17 months: school & calendar
  • Monthly, weekly and seasonal views
  • Inside back pocket
  • Tear out margins
  • Weekly quotes
  • Stickers for events

It really is a great and easy way to keep the family "in the know" and able to plan accordingly. There is no longer a reason to have an excuse on whether or not they were told about something, as long as you can remember to write it down!

Please show dotmine some love!
