Oh ladies, I may have found the perfect planner...

I am waiting to see if they will let me do a review for it, but hopefully in the next few days I will be sharing it with you. It looks awesome. AWESOME. And inexpensive.

Remember my excitement over the my well planned day online planner last year? The very, very disappointing, expensive planner? Well, it is STILL not up to par, and doesn't function properly after promising it would be by August (of 2012!)

Well, this time I am going to hold my enthusiasm until I get a chance to use it, but this planner looks like it might be a winner. A bonus - it is already a working planner that has excellent feedback.

So, what are you using to plan with? I know a lot of you are paper and pencil planners like me :)

     I don't have a planner, I hate using any kind of planner because it never fails to not get used or need to be tweaked more then I have time to tweak it so I just fly by the seat of my pants & if I need to schedule things I have a scheduling wall calender that I use for that.

    I love my paper planner because I need to have a general idea of what we need to get done lesson wise, but I know you guys unschool so you wouldn't really need that, huh? Lol I am a planner in every way, always have been. My daughter is the same way, poor kid ;) I got her a paper planner for valentines day and her reaction was priceless. You would have though I bought her a trip to Disney, or a kitten. Lol

     Yeah unschooling dose save you from lesson planing but on the flip side I have to be ready for anything my kids want to do at a moments notice, because you never know how long an interest in something will hold & you could loss them in the preparation stage to something else.

    I'm a planner,but I'm not a dedicated planner,I should be because when I don't plan my life is chaotic,but I'm getting better at planning and my life runs so much better when I plan!!

    I am the same way. Or I just lose it. Maybe if I had more kids. Lol :)
