The House of Doolittle Wirebound Weekly/Monthly Planner - $18.67
This 8 1/2 x 11 inch planner is a great planner for any individual. Made of 100% post-consumer paper it is an earth-friendly choice. The cover is sturdy enough to withstand daily use. This planner is larger than others I have used in the past and I like two-spread layout for the weekly and monthly calendars. This offers more space for me to track our increasingly busy family schedule. The monthly calendar also references four months in advance on the same page, which makes planning doctor and other important appointments easier.
The weekly calendar includes a daily schedule between 8am and 8pm with notes sections at the bottom of each day and the right column of each week.
I have to be honest, while this is a GREAT planner for the professional or single adult, as a mom, it would not be my first choice. I prefer a planner with sections for each family member, room for grocery lists, and places for meal-planning. In a pinch, this planner could be adapted for that by color-coding and attaching a small notepad with a paperclip.
If you're looking for a true "Mom Planner", I would highly recommend Amy Knapp's Family Organizer. Otherwise, if you're a single mother, or have a smaller family, this one just might do the trick for you!
