DotMine Family Time Planner (Review and Giveaway)

In the spirit of trying to become a bit more organized for the year ahead, I have traded in my planning apps for the traditional pen and paper organizational route. I'm not sure why, but I seem to be much better at planning and sorting things out, making schedules, and sticking to them, when I write them down, and can see it all laid out in my own hadwriting. Planning on my devices is lost to me- it gets tucked away, and I don't have time to waste scheduling alerts and alarms and notifications. Just give me an old-fashioned day planner, and I'll be ready to face the days ahead.

Thanks to Dotmine Day Planners, every gal in town can be well organized for the new year ahead. After all, being well organized is seriously in fashion- and Dotmine Day Planners are super stylish! I recently received my very own Family_Time.Mine Planner for 2013, in the beautiful black, white and green damask pattern. which is called NYGWP (Not Your Grandmother's Wall Paper- clever, right!?). 

My DotMine Family Time Planner, all wrapped up and waiting for me to fill its pages with our busy schedules.

I know it seems old school, but I love the simple design of this planner. A spiral bound notebook is all I need to keep my schedule on track, and this handy planner doesn't disappoint! Designed by moms, for busy families, this 17 month planner has everything you need to keep your family organized!

Don't you love the pretty NYGWP pattern?

The Dot Mine Family Time Planner is full of blank schedules, calendars, charts, bubbles (oh yeah- I love the bubbles!) and more! There's plenty of room to keep track of our monthly, weekly and daily duties like appointments, rehearsals, doctor's visits, social engagements and more!

A handy master schedule will keep you and your entire family on track all year long!

Write directly in your planner, or use sticky notes, so you can reuse the pages in your planner again and again!

Look at all of this lovely room to make schedules, write notes, shopping lists, etc!

I'm not really into making resolutions, but keeping better track of my blogging schedule is one that I have needed to make, and now that I've made it, I plan on keeping it! The Family Time Planner has so much room in it, that I can make notes on when my blog posts are scheduled for publishing, To-Do's, and more! I am going to be on vacation (starting today!) and won't be able to have access to e-mail, or the internet, period- for several days, but I will feel comfortable knowing that I can bring my DotMine Planner along with me, and make notes as I think of the things I might need to do upon my return.
