Dotmine day planners are a great tool to help balance your life. These 17 month planners help you to keep both the calendar year and school year in perspective. With organization features such as monthly and weekly calendars, perforated lists and room for sticky notes, these planners are tops.
Dotmine planners come in three different styles for busy individuals:
- LIFE_TIME.MINE - Combines work & family life
- FAMILY_TIME.MINE - Organizes busy families
- TIME.MINE - For Active Individuals
I was able to review the FAMILY_TIME.MINE Pink Tie-dye planner (Click for a few images of the features.) As a stay at home mom with a college student husband, I have to try to balance our lives as much as possible. This particular planner features schedules that I used to plan both the baby's day and my husband's class schedule. The weekly calendar features both a quote and a section to plan family time, which is a great reminder that we need to make room for this each week.
There are also sections for "family business" (list of doctors, teachers, etc and their contact info), "fun and fans" for our favorite people's contact info, "kid's stuff" for their friends (I'll use mine for playdates), babysitter info, notes and more. And so you don't have to stick loose pages of paper in your planner, they've included a folder on the back page, which is great for receipts, invitations and more.
Since a few months have already passed, use these pages for journaling, notes and lists. For example, I used the calendar for scrapbooking, putting in old appointments to help keep track and extra shopping lists or to-do lists but you could really use them for whatever you want.
These planners come in a variety of styles and are available online at timemine.com, borders.com and Borders stores.
