A mom says: "I love my desk calender! We fill in all the activities for the month then post them on a bulletin board so that EVERYONE knows and no one has any excuse for missing anything!" Another says: "I find it's hard to find one that's large enough to write all that is going on, but small enough to travel in your purse or car."

A mom says:

A 12 month Planner for Homeschooling Moms and Dads, to help you plan and organize for up to four children in one place.
The planner has Class Plans for four students to help you schedule each Student's assignments; four Student Time Schedules so each day is tracked by the hour; a weekly schedule with class assignments, priorities, prayer requests, dinner menus and notes.
The month at a glance is for planning ahead, such as field trips, other activities and books to read.
Also included are perforated Report Cards and shopping lists for menu planning plus schedules for planning family worship and bible reading.
A parent says:
No successful person can do without a calendar.
This 13 month planner (August to August) is small and cute. Available in Fuchsia, Scarlet, Tangerine, Soft-Gold, Chocolate, Violet, Leopard and Python.
If you're a stay at home dad, I'd go for the chocolate or the scarlet version.

Personalization is possible in two fonts and three colors making a great gift for any parent.

I still rate my old Filofax over digital products. I have a desk and pocket diary. Wouldn't be without them. The old brain cannot retain all info all of the time.
Magnetic Family Wall Planners
17 Month Planners August Of Current Year Through December The Following Year
I love these magnetic Family Planners - just stick them on the refrigerator, where everyone in the family can see them - you might even persuade them to enter their OWN activities!!
So you all have a busy schedule - a magnetic planner will help you keep it all organized! There's a handy storage pocket, built-in magnetic hanger, 494 stickers and extra-large grid to make it all so simple for Mom (or Dad) to keep track of up to five family members.
Keep everyone's information to hand with two tabbed quick-reference contact sections and the new larger size gives you plenty of room to write!
There are different styles to suit different families and their scheduling needs.
A mom says
Two years in a row I had the Mom's Plan It calendar - absolutely loved it! Would be great to have a planner version, didn't even realized they had those! This year I just grabbed what was at the store in the college kids going-back-to-school section.

A dad says
I'm a dad. I'm a really busy one, too. I've always loved planners, and can stick with them for quite a while if I find one I really like. Do you know of any planners that are "daddy oriented"?
A dad says:
I'm not much on keeping up with planners, so my wife does all of that, considering we have 5 kids and they all play sports on different nights and sometimes on the same night!
