Last night when the phone rang, I was a little surprised to see my accountant’s office on the caller ID. They wanted to schedule my 2014 tax appointment. Alrighty, then! Guess I know what I’m doing on March 21, 2015 at 7:00 AM!
After hanging up the phone I went straight for my planner, because people, I can’t remember what I’m doing TOMORROW, let alone March 21, 2015!
I do have a smart phone now, and I’m slowly learning how to use it beyond calling/texting/social media, but I don’t yet trust it. Yes, I could use Google Calender for all of my scheduling, and I’m sure someday I will, but there’s just something about pretty planner pages and a pencil.
If you’re looking for a beautiful and easy-to-use Daily Planner, the Homemaker’s Friend is one to check out. Created by Sue Hooley, a fellow mom of six, it offers plenty of flexibility. Besides daily tasks, monthly projects, and day-to-day scheduling, I also keep a running list of gift ideas in the planner for all the important people in my life.
The 2015 Planner has the following features:
- Weekly Layout
