Ideal Life Planner Review

When I left the corporate world to raise my family I thought that would be the end of needing to use a daily planner. I was very wrong because I quickly discovered that with the numerous commitments as a home educating mother of three……a planner has become even more important to successfully organize our household. The Ideal Life Planner™ is unlike any organizing planner that I have ever used in the past and really does offer so much more than just planning….in fact, I think of it as a life tool. I appreciate that this planner is sized similar to a notebook and the paper is of very nice quality. There is a lot of room to write and there is extra space provided to make notes or lists. The Ideal Life Planner™ includes a Month at a Glance Calendars and Daily Scheduling Pages.

What I really appreciate is that the Ideal Life Planner™ is designed to be an inspirational planning tool to help support the positive factors and motivators in your life. There are days when homeschooling, working and taking care of my household can be overwhelming but I am finding that when I take a few minutes to update my new planner it helps me to focus on the positive and feel more grateful and optimistic.

I am currently on a post pregnancy weight loss journey so I really appreciate that the Ideal Life Planner™ has an easy to use nutritional and fitness tracking system. Instead of having a planner and a notebook to write down my weight loss or daily exercises this provides me the opportunity to keep both in one convenient location saving me valuable time and effort. There is even motivating areas to write about what “I am grateful for” (love this feature), Identifying Life PrioritiesEncouragement and Self Reflection and my favorite, Memorable Events or Occasions which is really neat as my three little ones are always doing something that I want to make a note of but just don’t have the time to keep a separate journal.

I had the opportunity to review the Ideal Life Planner™ for January-June 2011. As this planner is packed full of useful spaces for writing, planning and self motivating it is separated into two six month books. I have really enjoyed using the Ideal Life Planner™ and look forward to seeing the edition for the second half of the year too. To purchase your own copy of the Ideal Life Planner™, the 2011 Edition (both books) for only $27.00 you are invited to visit the website.
