As a busy wife & mother, I am always looking for ways to keep myself organized as well as being able to plan accordingly for my family’s very hectic schedule. I have utilized many different ways of organizing our lives to keep us on track of the things we need to do. One of those things is writing out our schedules in a planner. I’ve had everything from a Filofax to a Day Runner and even Agenda and now – I’m rocking out a Keeping It Together Planner for 2014.
I have a thing for bright, fun colors. And, those that know me, know I am a HUGE Lisa Frank fan and this planner screams colors of happiness to me. When I first opened the box, I was greeted with goodies and bright tissue paper. Upon opening up the rest of the box, the Planner laid there in all of its colorful glory. Needless to say – if I wasn’t already excited just knowing I was getting it – I was like a kid in a candy store eager to rip it all open and start planning.

For those of you that like no fuss planners that eliminate all the extras like Birthday / Anniversary Lists and Contact List – this planner is definitely for you. It offers you the opportunity to go straight into planning and organizing your life, with enough room for a little doodle fun if that’s something you like to do. I love that there is no time slots for listing appointments but instead an actual writing space (similar to that of a journal) that will allow you to write in each date the contents of your day as you please.
Each day offers you not only the space to write but also areas for Exercise and Gratitude. I especially love this because it allows me to keep track of my daily exercise, run/walk mileage as well as the amount of water I drink each day and I can reflect back on this each week for improvement on the next. You also get a daily quote as well as a Fitness/Health Tip which helps to keep you motivated and inspired each day.
One of my favorite parts of this planner is the weekly menu. I currently plan my meals out in advance to not only assist with saving money when purchasing food items, but also to keep our family on track and to help with our healthy eating. Since this portion is already built into the planner itself, it is the perfect way to keep track of what your family meals are. This is such a great addition and I’m glad that it was included.
Keeping yourself and your family organized is an investment. This planner retails for $50 on the Keeping It Together Website. In my opinion – with all the additions this planner has, it is well worth the money and I have already noticed how beneficial it has been in organizing my family’s many events as well as my Blog and YouTube Channel. I absolutely love the daily inspiration listed on each page that helps to keep me motivated for the day and this planner is so easy to use with everything you need to keep yourself on track. If you are in the market for an Agenda, Planner or Organizer (what ever you may call it) and want something that provides a little happiness as well as a way to keep you inspired and on top of things, definitely check out the Keeping It Together Planner. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next year.
