Giveaway: Ultimate Homeschool Planner 2013


Hi there friends and welcome!
I'm happy you stopped by for the giveaway 
and I hope you'll click around and stay while.

You may remember my post,
in which I referred to a  planner  I intended on utilizing this  year,

Well, I purchased the planner here on amazon and boy was I over the moon
with new-homeschool-year-enthusiasm  when it arrived!
I am definitely a planner junkie, as I've mentioned here on my blog.
I carry 'em around.......
I prop color coded calendars on window sills here and there...
 And of course,  since a homeschool mom needs a spot to record plans,
 goals, book lists, daily accomplishments and the like....
 I really thought this would fit the bill.
And I really really liked it.
The ease of the spiral binding; 
the pockets on the inside covers for sticking papers needed that week; 
even a thorough and welcoming note from the author.

But.
Comprehensive and even brimming with biblical references
 and motivational quotes, 
it's  not working for me.

Let me show you a few pictures of the planner so you can see it  for yourself.
I really tried to adapt my method of note keeping
to it, but to no avail.  ~~ ~





So, I'm reverting to my tried and true system of record keeping and planning 
with a  teacher-planner...
I know, I know,
dull and dry as dirt though that may be.....
it does fit my recording style and has, for many years,
as a homeschool mom and a teacher, pre Mommy.

Rather than let my copy of the
 Ultimate  Homeschool Planner sit and collect dust, I'm guessing that 
someone out there reading,
some homeschool mom who's heard of it and just never 
 wanted to go to the expense of buying it,  
would like to get her planner-addict hands on it!
I am happy to oblige you!

Once I secure mailing details, 
I'll get the planner out so the lucky homeschool Mom 
can have the planner in hand asap.

Good luck!

Until next time,


~Chris

  18. Heard about you through Catholimom.com FB page. So I subscribed and have checked out your site - like your links as well!
    I will understand if you don't ship to Canada - but if you do I would love this!
    I am an office supply junkie and each year before school starts up I am at Staples buying every $1 deal or 10cent deal etc... I have enough lined paper, pencils, pens, erasers, to choke a horse though now my kids do more and more work on the computer!
