I think I'm becoming obsessive. I'm not normally this way, but I think on this particular topic I have crossed over the line of
rational normal to obsessive. To what have I become obsessive about? I've become obsessive over finding the perfect day planner! Not the perfect pair of jeans, or the perfect pair of shoes, but the perfect day planner. As I went to Office Depot (AGAIN), and Office Max last week, I decided then that I was probably obsessing just a bit.
I mean, good grief, does it really have to be this difficult? Probably not, but I have made it this way apparently! I know I've asked people's opinions on Facebook, and maybe even on this very blog, but I still have not found what I want. I've come close, and I may settle, but I just can't seem to find that ONE!
Most of the planners I find would be great if I was in the business world and kept track of expenses (because that's always on the page), or other "business" related things. There are others that people recommended because I homeschool and they are geared toward homeschoolers (but I don't use my planner to organize my school stuff).
Most of the planners are monthly/weekly planners, and I want daily sheets as well. Most don't have near enough writing room.
Most are outrageously expensive, though I'm not against investing in one.
There are a few that I've found that I think may work. Our life just continues to get busier with school, both girls playing select/premier soccer, church life (which we are involved in many things), To-do's, etc...I also DO NOT write small.
I've found one at Target by Franklin Covey that could work, but it's a compact size, which isn't bad, but smaller than I like. It's a monthly/weekly one, but could still work.
Office Depot has one, also by Franklin Covey called Rhapsody, that is a monthly/daily planner and the daily part would actually be perfect, but the monthly part is so small it seems pointless, it's also not dateless so I'll have lost a few months, but they're 50% off right now.
I also like the Busy Woman's Dayplanner , but that's one that I have to print, cut (if I buy a classic size) and hole punch myself, which doesn't excite me. I'm not opposed to getting the one that is 8 1/2 x 11 size, but still, a lot of ink, a lot of hole punching.
I'm hoping to get one in the next few weeks since the calendar I have is about to end.
On another note, I just found out that I won a copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks Cookbook from Giving Up On Perfect. I'm so excited because I have really been wanting a copy of this, but haven't bought it. I think I'm more excited to sit and look at pictures and read it than make the recipes, though I know I will.
Well, off to fold towels and pick up the house before the family gets home (they're off watching a soccer game).
