I ended up taking out a lot of the home improvement type stuff. Sad, but I had to re-think the purpose of these planners. They are to aid us in our mothering. Home maintenance is important but not the focus. There is ample space to write down cleaning thoughts and schedules on the weekly planner.
I've started using my planner and testing out the proof. It is fine and dandy. Very cute I say. I'm enjoying the small boxes to write everything and anything I think of down. Not too much space to make you feel like you have to write a novel, but just enough. Might be too small for those that love the big 8-1/2 x 11" and like to write novels, but works for those of us who like to have small, compact goodness reaching to us from our purses.
I took some pictures of what it looks like. My proof has the black coil but the others will have a wonderful silver coil that is very durable.
I divided my weekly planning page by Morning, Afternoon, Evening, but you can do it how you want to. A lot of people like to separate it by family member or event.

Here is a closer look at the weekly planner: The columns on the side are also for you to organize how you would like. I used it for a "to-do" and a "grocery" list. You can use it for Projects, Church, Callings, however you would like. The boxes on top are also for you to use however you would like. A focus word, a goal, priority, a quote or thought, something to memorize. It's all game.
Here is one of the monthly calendar spreads. Nice and roomy. I just use my own little office supply stickers and write on them to make important things stand out. I'm thinking I'll go to the craft store and see if I can find some other cute stickers to use. I am in process of making my own LDS version of stickers to use in the planner eventually.
Here is the "teach my children" and Sunday lessons spread with an inserted sticky note. I am stoked about these pages because they are what will aid each of us to be more deliberate in our parenting, in our conversations, in our teaching. It is a big responsibility to teach our children in the way of truth. This will help us do that.
Here are the Family Home Evening Planning Pages for March. Just have to fill it out once a month really and it will help you keep things together for the rest of the month. Yes, this is just what I have needed for the last 10 years basically. Just a place to keep the FHE thoughts and ideas together. Lots of open, roomy space to jot down plans, concerns, activities, goals, etc.
