10 2013 Planners To Keep The Busy Mom Organized

One of my favorite things about celebrating the new year is with a clean, crisp and pretty planner. With 5 littles, 2 of which are in elementary school, my days are quite filled. Weekends too. It is so important to have good time management, as I wrote about here. Mom planner. Blog planner. A planner is one of the best mom accessories you can buy yourself. Seriously.

While you can use your iPhone now a days to schedule your everyday life, I found it easier and more productive to write everything down so I’m able to see it. In the flesh. I am a visual person and have found this to be the best way to go over the years. Especially if your phone dies, or you forget to back it up and happen to lose everything. It’s a nice way to be able to see your schedule in front of you. All the doctors appointments, milestones, birthday parties — it’s a great way for every mom to keep her thoughts together in one place.

Feel like you need more than a planner to get organized this year? Browse through some of my favorite mom tips and pretty inspiration in this post to help you get motivated! And then pick yourself up one of these planners.

    The Life Planner from Erin Condren, a Tiny Prints exclusive, is my current planner. I just got it a few weeks ago and fell immediately in love. Immediately. I love how you can customize the front, and it comes with cute stickers you can use inside the planner instead of writing things out.

    momAgenda
    momAgenda is one of my favorite "mom" brands. For the last 3 years, I've planned my life using the momAgenda Desktop Day Planner. It has everything you need for your family in one place. Each day you have a segregated space for your schedule, along with the schedules of up to 4 children. The weekly and daily planning areas give you plenty of space for your busy schedule. There are monthly views too! One of my favorite things about the momAgenda is the momEssential pamphlet that can be removed and reused from year to year -- no more re-writing the address book, birthdays, etc. into each planner. It's definitely one of my longtime favorites. I still use the All in One Folio everyday. I couldn't survive without it! It's a calendar, folio, notepad in pen all in one and is a great wingman for your planner.
