Time to start planning with some help from Dot.Mine Planners

Since I started blogging, life has begun to get busier and crazier.  Not only that I have to admit that my memory isn't the greatest and if I don't write things down 9 out of 10 times I completely forgot things.  I also have two young active boys that seem to want chauffeuring around daily to their many activities, as for our social life, What Social Life !!  :-)

So I when I had the chance to review one of the Dot.Mine planners I knew straight away that I wanted pick the family time planner from their range of planners.
Going to be my new planning bible !!
What I thought was great was that the family time planners are actually designed with input from like minded moms who understand how manic life can be.  When the planner arrived I was really impressed with the quality of not only the pretty covers but the paper inside as well, no scrimping on this product unlike some I have seen before.  The child side of me came out when I spotted the page of really useful stickers to highlight events such as birthdays, bills, dentist, sports, I couldn't wait to start using them.
Depending on your preferences there are three different options to choose from to add all your events to your planners or you could combine all three options, so easy to use.  
The first two options, above, are combined on four quality folded cards, two in the front named Fall 2012 Schedule and Winter 2012 Schedule and two in the back named Spring 2013 schedule and Summer 2013 Schedule.  On the left hand side is a full page weekly schedule to add all your recurring events in, then on the right is timed weekly planner so you can work out who is doing what at certain times.
The third option, above,  comes in the form of the main planner with week by week full page schedules with the option to include notes, lists or anything else you might need to the side which can also be torn off along the perforations so you can take it with you.

Included in the back of the planner are different pages to include all the information you need to keep things ticking over nicely, such as names and telephone numbers of all the people you may need to contact either for family business, friends, work, kid's friends and even a babysitters information page. There is also a 2012-2014 calendar.  I think they have actually thought of everything.  I honestly think that if you need help with remembering everything that is going on then you will definitely not be disappointed with these planners.

Their other planners fall into the categories of Life Time - which are great day planners and calendars to organize work and family, then there are Day planners/calendars to organize active personal lives and ideal as school planers and they even have a Spanish/English bilingual day planner.

Take a look at some of their other designs !!

You can also find them on FacebookTwitter, Google+ and even on Pinterest

I received this product through Karma Media in exchange for my honest review.
