Something I can not live without

I love anything that will help me stay organized, on top of my life, and my to-do list. I am one of those people who can't get anything done unless I write it down. That goes for goals, remembering every errand I need to run, and when I'm supposed to be at work. I make lists for everything, really everything. I make packing lists before I go on a trip, grocery lists, potential future baby name lists, house project lists, I have a list of things to do for everything in my life.

A few years ago I was introduced to the best day (or for me, life) planner in the world. I have gone through just about every type of planner and calender that you can imagine. Over the years every planner was missing something, or lots of things for me (even my iPhone wasn't cutting it), until I came across the Truly Mom planner. It is simply fantastic. It has a place for everything! It is about the size of the average novel and easily fits in any one of my purses. I can't go anywhere without it and I have to have it with me if I want to accomplish anything. I love it so. They come in a very durable leather (it is also available in satin for a cheaper price) that will last for years. Years? you might ask. Yes, you will use this planner for years because at the end of every 12 months you can buy new refills and use it over and over again. Seriously, it is the best.


Included is a full year calendar with month, week and day tabs so you can stay on top of your hectic life (and color coded stickers to mark special dates). For each day there are a number of note pads provided for you(sticky and regular), so you can jot down every thought, appointment, and to-do list, which allows you to be as organized as possible.

Also included is a phone/address book and a gift purchase planner.

On your daily jot list you can take advantage of the space at the bottom that allows you to focus on each child and their schedule, pick up times, and appointments. Also included is a space for meal planning, calls to make, and something just for you. It has it all.




I'm telling you, this planner is complete. I highly recommend it if you are needing a little help staying organized. The satin ones are only $60, the leather are $150. I prefer the leather. I have had mine for 3 years, use it everyday and it still looks brand new. I still have several years of use out of this single planner. They also offer tiny planners with all the same features for only $36. Pretty awesome if you ask me.

we're twins! my husband makes fun of me because he finds lists and post-its all around the house of things I need to do, or at least think I need to do. I also have a baby name list! haha, i'll have to invest in one of these, I need one!
