2013 - 2014 Well Planned Day Planner Review and Giveaway

***This Giveaway has ended.***

Congratulations Andrea! You're the winner of the Well Planned Day Giveaway!

For those of you who didn't win, if you are still interested in a Well Planned Day Planner, please visit HUDEA and check out their planners!

I am so excited to share my first giveaway with you guys today! I was contacted by HUDEA to see if I was willing to share their Well Planned Day planner with one of you guys. Let me just say how excited I was and how quickly I said YES!  I've used their planner for two years already and this will be my third year. This year’s 2013-2014 Well Planned Day planner has some awesome changes from previous years.
 Let me walk you through this amazing planner! These planners are 8.5x11 in size and spiral bound so I can lay it flat when writing down information. They have a very modern look with bright colors, making it fun to show off and look through. 
One of the first updates made that I LOVE are the monthly name cutouts. This makes it much easier to flip to the current month or a specific month if I need to review past or future months.
This planner has a keepsake page where I can place a family photo & fun family trivia and another page to stay in touch with family and friends
pages to track my finances and household chores
and four chore cards for my children to keep track of chores and school subjects.

This planner also has a page for my teaching schedule
...a class plan and schedule for up to four children... 
and pages to view the year in advance and keep track of your semester goals.
Another feature that was updated this year is the monthly calendar – it's now a 2-page layout. I LOVE this update! It’s so much easier to write down important information for all 3 of my children plus me in a larger space. I also love that each day has chapters from the bible to read to help keep me focused on my goal of reading through the bible in a year. 
I can also make up to six shopping lists each month so if I think of that one more thing I need to get at the grocery store while teaching my kids, I can quickly jot it down and continue with class, not having to worry about forgetting about it by the time I'm done teaching.
The weekly schedule is nicely spaced for 4 children’s school assignments. My only complaint is that they have pre-filled the school subjects. I’d like to be able to write the subjects in order that we do school so I don’t feel like I’m skipping something or going out of order from what feels natural in our school day. Other than that, I love that I can check off each assignment for each child as they've completed it. I also appreciate that I can write down our supper plans or important reminders for the week and weekend and don’t have to flip back to the monthly calendar to remember.
Holiday planning is a breeze with a short section between November and December to plan for the holidays. I don’t know about you, but I like having a place to write down thoughts for gifts, dates for parties, and how much I’d like to spend per gift.  
Each semester has pages I can record each child’s progress, grades, and attendance. This makes it super easy to know how each child is doing and where I need to encourage them further.
At the end of the Well Planned Day planner is a report card for each child that is printed on nice thick cardstock, so I can give it to my children at the end of first semester and know that it will last until the following semester.
I hope you've enjoyed my review of the new 2013-2014 Well Planned Day planner. Now I’d love to share a copy with one of you lucky readers!
