This is the second year I have had this book and I have to say it is the best planner I have ever had! Last year was the first year I had it because I was a new mom and it was a great way to keep me organized with all the new changes in life.
The thing that attracted me to this planner first was the amount of room in each date block. When you open it flat, two pages consists of one full week and a large To Do area. Each day has a large area to write the activities for the day, along with any National holiday info and mom phase. One special thing this planner has are tons of little stickers you can use to mark events on the calendar. A good deal of them have to do with school related activities, but there are lots of other things like birthdays, Dr. appointments, and everyday activities too. They really help make a day stand out so you don't overlook something important.
The other great thing this planner has are side panels on each page that you can write things down on and tear out. One side is marked "grocery list" and has sections like dairy and meats, and the other side is marked "This week's menu". The panel is perforated so you can cleanly tear it out and take it to the store with you.
This planner covers a 17 month span from August to December of the following year, but I'm not sure why. You have to buy a new planner at the end of the year, so you will either end up not using the first few months (like me), or the last few months (if you are following a school calendar).
