As the kids are getting older and their activities are getting more complicated and increasing in numbers I find myself running around like a chicken with my head cut off at times.

I’ve been in an endless search for a way to keep track of everything going on in my personal life, family, home, blog and countless activities. I’ve used phone apps, calendars, to-do lists and planners. Nothing has seemed to work just right for me. When the Family_Time.Mine 17 Month Day Planner by Dotmine Day Planners came up to review, I was hoping this would finally be the end of my search.

It’s the answer to the question of how to organize the lives of a busy family (or the life of anyone with recurring activities!). This planner was developed with input from a lot of moms and will help you keep it all together – even when it seems like it’s falling apart! Your friends — and strangers — will eye your planner with envy. You’ll wonder how you ever got along without it!
My Family_Time.mine 17 Month Day Planner by Dotmine Day Planners arrived quickly. The planner is in a beautiful sturdy cover and I noticed right away that it was laid out differently than other planners or calendars I have used or looked at in the past.
Dotmine Day Planners offers 3 different cover styles: Dutch Treat, Free Bird and Petites Fleurs. I received the Petites Fleurs and absolutely love the design. It’s gorgeous with a sweet simple touch to it. The colors are bright and tasteful.
What made this Day Planner unique was the way it divides out your Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer schedule. For any busy mom of a child in sports and extracurricular activities; your schedule and your child’s schedule changes drastically with the seasons.
It would be nice if things stayed the same, but with kids and their ever evolving schedules that’s never gonna happen. The My Family_time.mine 17 Month Day Planner takes all of these factors into consideration. It makes things easier to be managed and organized.
I really enjoy the section at the top allocated to write in Family_Time. It’s a great reminder each week to schedule something other than the normal day-to-day chaos with your family. Running around from place to place even though it is for our kids isn’t always “Family Time”.
There are also some great little weekly quotes that will either get you thinking or give you a little chuckle. Nice little break from the daily grind of things. I love quotes and stuff so that was a perfect little touch added to the Day Planner.
The My Family_time.mine 17 Month Day Planner has great little pockets to put papers so you don’t have to worry about them falling out. There are also perforated sides so you can tear out that grocery list you jotted down or that note you need. It makes it great to be able to tear out just that section so it won’t ruin your other pages and you don’t have to carry the planner in places where you don’t need it.
This planner really does have everything I’ve been looking for and needing to keep my busy family and myself structured and running smoothly. Now that I’ve found the Day Planner that keeps me on task and focused I need to do the hardest thing; utilize it properly. Dotmine Day Planners has thought of every detail, now it’s my job to stay consistent and rely on it 🙂
If you’ve been on the look out for a planner or needing a new one this may just be the Day Planner to keep you and your family organized. You can purchase it for $24.99 here.
