I have tried other planners in the past, but found them too expensive, heavy and cumbersome. I was pleased to find Sue Hooley’s Daily Planner reasonably priced, flexible, a handier size and more organized than the pricier versions.
I am a “big rocks” person. I like to plan the big things to get done first, and then fill in life’s many details around the big things. This planner has an ideal set up for goal planning. The Yearly calendar gives space to list my important goals or events for each month. The Monthly calendar provides the next level breakdown to list commitments and events with notes on the side (Christmas names in December, items to bring to Christmas party, etc.).
Under the Weekly tab, each week has more space to detail specific goals, obligations or errands. The tasks list at the top of the week’s page can be added to, creating the week’s overall goals that I can later group into one or two days, or cross off when completed so I can immediately see what is left for the week. I especially like the menu section for each day, because I like to plan or prepare dinner before breakfast. That way, whatever goes wrong during the day, it can end with a peaceful planned meal!
The Scripture verses at the beginning of each section are encouraging and well chosen. Having a verse for each week helps to keep focus on the purpose for all our hectic scheduling.
Other Tabs are:
Tasks – Each page has two-columns of lines with a title line at the top. Great for organizing or planning lists for the entire year. Some topics I will use mine for will be writing goals, to-do household items, prayer lists, people I want to send a just-because card, a thankful for list, places I want to go, recipes I want to try, or to track a savings or pay-off goal.
Projects and Events – Each page has two sections with a shaded header section and 10 white lined rows. I will likely use these to list steps required to conquer the projects I listed under tasks. There are more than sufficient sections for a project a month. If you are like me, are more likely to get finished when broken down into smaller attainable sections.
Information: This can be used for email or home addresses or contact information.
Shopping: This section’s first page is for phone numbers of stores or businesses
The other pages are three perforated columns for shopping and/or errand lists. There are also two pocket pages in the back for coupons, receipts, or invitation reminders
Set in a comfortable easy-to-grip washable cover that is nicely ring-bound and lays flat, this planner is a winner! You can find this planner and information about the author on her website.http://www.homemakersfriend.com/
