I recieved my complimentary copy the other day, and I must say, I am impressed. The book is 9" by 11" and is quite a handy item. It includes tabbed monthly calendars, weekly calendars, and yearly reference calendars.
You can see a month at a glance, to get the over-all picture of how your month's schedule looks. Each day of the month as a 2 inch square for notations.
The view of the full month is followed by each week on two pages with 3" by 7" boxes for recording appointments and "to do lists" for each week day, and two smaller boxes for Saturday and Sunday.
This is so much better than the Day Planners the company for which I used to work provided. Seems like I was always trying to cram information into spaces just not large enough to accommodate everything!
Although it was sent to me because I write a blog that attracts seniors, this planner could be a godsend for any busy person, just because of the added space provided compared to the average day minder.
Also, toward the back of the spiraled book are pages for extra notes, room for listing names, addresses, phone numbers. fax numbers, and email addresses of a couple dozen contacts. Then, at the very back, there's a page for recording important websites, log ins and passwords.
There's a list of dates of holidays for 2012 and 2013, plus a reminder of when to switch from and to daylight savings time.
I am frequently solicited to review products and do giveaways on my blog, but I seldom agree to participate. The product has to be something I think my readers would be interested in receiving, as well as something I would find useful. Most often I respond, "Thanks, but no thanks," but I'm really excited about this planner, and I'm happy that one of my readers will receive one, as well. What a great gift for a friend or busy family member, too.
A winner will be selected on Monday, 11/14 and announced the following day on my blog. To participate in the drawing, just comment on this post, telling me why you need a planner; that's it. No strings attached, no hoops through which to jump; no need to sign on as a follower. (But feel free to do so, if you enjoy my posts!)
