Growing up, I remember how my mom never left the house without her planner. With appointments and homeschool activities for six children, it was her lifeline.
I only have one child so far, but as a homemaker I’ve already learned the value of a good planner! Last year I was introduced to the Homemaker’s Friend Daily Planner by Sue Hooley, and fell in love. It’s by far the best–and my favourite–planner I’ve used (and I went through quite a few during my college years!).
I got my beautiful 2016 planner in the mail recently, and I can’t wait to fill its pages with the rhythms of our daily life.
I’ll give you an inside look at the 2016 edition of the Homemaker’s Friend planner, and then you’ll have a chance to win your own below!
The Homemaker’s Friend planner is tab-divided into 7 sections:
- Year – includes 2016 and 2017 mini calendars and space for important dates
- Month – 2-page spread with space for margin notes
- Week – includes space for weekly to-do list, activities, and daily menu
- Tasks – lots of pages here for any lists you need to make!
- Projects & Events – use this space for party planning and organizing!
- Information – a place to keep contact info
- Shopping – LOTS of pages of perforated, tear-out shopping lists
The weekly section is my favourite; I love being able to see and plan my whole week at a glance, plus keep track of what we’re having for dinner each night.
As functional as the Homemaker’s Friend planner is, it’s also very beautiful. And since I’ll be consulting it daily and carrying it with me, aesthetics are important! I love the Bible verses and quotes sprinkled throughout, and the clean but detailed layout that show that this planner was created from lots of experience! (Sue Hooley, the creator of the Homemaker’s Friend planners, is a homeschooling mom of 6.)
In fact, the Homemaker’s Friend planner is my ideal planner.(:
