Review and Giveaway: Dotmine Planner

Managing the schedules of two kids takes talent. Throw in the little detail of my own business to run, and well – coordination is everything. Especially because I work out of my home in a very deadline oriented line of work (freelance writing). At any given time I have at least five to six different projects going on with several different clients – so keeping track of what’s going on is vital.

I have a lot of modern day technology to keep me on track – but I recently got my hands on a pretty little planner and I’m so excited!

It’s old school, you guys. You use a pen and hand write things in it. And for some reason – that really helps me with my to-do lists. At the end of the day, I like to write down what I need to (and some things I hope to) accomplish so it’s there in black and white. The problem is – I usually do this on spare pieces of paper that become misplaced in the chaos I call my kitchen.

The folks at dotmine planners have come up with good looking planners that help people keep it together. They have three lines: life-time.mine, family-time.mine and time.mine. All three lines are a little different – but all the planners are really – well – pretty!

I have the robin’s egg blue, leather, 7×9 inch life-time.mine planner. LOVE IT. In addition to a two-page spread for each week in the year-and-a-half time period (which I am using to write my daily to-do lists), it has a page to reflect upon what you want to accomplish personally and professionally that year, a master schedule planning guide (I love feeling like I’ve mastered something!), a place to keep track of work contacts and notes, a place to keep track of personal contacts (think plumber, doctors, teachers, neighbors) and a cool pocket in the back (to keep receipts I usually lose!)

I love the plain blue cover and the inside floral patterns. The weekly schedule has perforated margins for “grab and go” lists make errands easy and it has a pretty ribbon bookmark to keep me on the right page.

So there’s hope that I can actually write that article on physical therapy AND get Annie to soccer practice on time AND get Jackson to baseball practice at the right field AND get field trip forms signed and returned AND make it to the PTO meeting at the right date AND….(I know you can relate)

It’s a Giveaway!
