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.
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!
