The Agenda

Ever since high school (and maybe middle school, now that I think about it), I have kept a planner/agenda/daytimer.

My first few were the ones published with our school mascot...they included school rules and maps of campus...and had a section on "good study habits".

When I went to college, I needed one more than ever. Lots of important academic deadlines to keep...and SO many social activities. Maybe too many :) Back then, I had a couple Mary Engelbreit planners that were cheerful and bright.

Towards the end of college, I bought a beautiful brown leather-bound agenda, that was refillable from Scully (the sewn-bound option). I used it for several years. (and I still have it, so maybe one day I'll go back to that one. It is still in great shape!)

Then I was tempted by a spiral system from Target. The 365 Covey, in a clutchbound size. Perfect to fit alongside the new things I toted around every day in a diaperbag :) But this year, Target no longer sells the Size 3 Refills.

What to do...but google agendas. And I found this:

the momagenda. i ordered it in the chocolate desktop size (with the pockets accessory)...they have lots of great colors and a few different options and accessories.

like these clips.
and a magnetic chore chart.
fun stuff.

Plenty of fun colorful things to encourage you to get organized this year! Right now, they have some good sales...and if you want, I can email you a link to receive 10% your first purchase. (It's part of a rewards program they offer for customers.) Just let me know below in the comments!

If you have another planner/system that works for you, please share it! I'd love to file it away...you know, for next year!

i was just thinking last night how i wish i had a dayplanner for 2010. i've tried to keep one in the past and it's always an off and on thing for me, but this year, i think i could really put one to good use.

Hi Kimber-Leigh, I'm a momagenda fan--on my third or fourth one now--and I love it! Hope you do too!

I thought about doing the MyAgenda (not the Mom version because I'm not a Mom yet...), but I just don't like how it starts on Monday. *sigh* I NEED my calendar to start on Sunday. LOL. It's SO hard to find!!! LOL.

I also don't need daily pages. I just need the month with 1.5" squares... big enough to write 2 or 3 things in. :-)

I ended up going with Russell & Hazel. I LOVE that it's a 3-ring binder, and I can add as need-be. We carry the refills at The Container Store too, so that's a nice perk (my discount). And the binder I chose is just SO pretty. :-) If I get sick of it, I can always alter it... ;-)

I am sad about the covey clutch at Target. I love that planner and have used it for a few years. Last week I drove from Vancouver (Canada) to Target to get my refills...and found out they are discountinued..boo!

Maybe I will have to try the Momagenda also ;)
