In today's busy world, day planners are a total must. To be honest, I never used a planner prior to this past year. Everything I needed I just wrote down on a piece of paper and hoped I found it again when I needed it. That was the problem, I never could find those pieces of paper, so off to day planners it was for me!
Now before I say anything else, I just want to give you a bit of background on the company.
The company was founded by Lisa Edwards and Sarah Nicoli back in 1999 while they were trying to juggle their work and daily lives. Their planners offer flexible features that work with individual lifestyles and also offers different types of planners for teens, family, lifestyle and even bilingual. You can learn more about all their planners at http://timemine.com/.
Now back to what I was saying before....
When I started looking at the different planners available today, I got so confused as to which one would work the best for me. I found there are a few planners that did the job, but noticed that towards the end of the year I would be using 2 different planners to keep track of everything.
So, when I was offered to review Dotmine's "Family_Time.Mine" planner, I jumped at the chance hoping this planner might be the one that will or even come close to solving my planning problems.
I received the planner in their "Purple Pebbles" design, which is
- made of durable plastic....
- 8.5 x 11 inches, has monthly and weekly planning pages
- inspirational and humorous quotes
- perforated margins for "tear-out" lists, and note pages
- master schedule/planning guides
- back pocket holder
- fun colorful reminder stickers all in one fantastic book.
It was a surprised to find that the Family_Time.Mine is actually a 17 month planner. They start off in the month of August where things start getting a bit hectic and actually....it did solve my problem of two separate planners. Their price of $19.99 (+ s/h) is very compatible if not more economic than some of the other planners I looked at.
Needless to say I was totally thrilled with this and recommend this to everyone who is looking for an extended all in one day planner!
