Planning for an Organized School Year

One of the challenges of homeschooling is organizing everything. I wrote some earlier this week about how we organize our house for homeschooling. And in a week or so I'm planning on doing a post about the specifics of how we're organizing papers this year, but today I wanted to tell you about an AMAZING product for organizing, not just your homeschool but your whole life!!! 

The 2010 Homeschool Planner is unlike anything else I've ever seen (except maybe the 2009 Homeschool Planner, hee hee). This is over 600 pages of information and printables for organizing not just your homeschool, but your home as well. 

Every year I search for the perfect calendar/lesson planner, and every one I find isn't QUITE right for our family. The 2010 Homeschool Planner is a .pdf file that you can purchase as a CD or instant download (that's right, you don't even have to wait for it to come, you can get it as SOON as your order it!!!). And then you can print out whichever pages work for your family, and as many copies of each page as you need. It's even set up so you can fill in your own information and SAVE it, so you don't have to hand write everything like you would if you bought a paper planner.
And what about planners for your children? You can make those too. So for one low price you get not ONE planner, but planners for the whole family!!

But wait! This isn't JUST a Lesson Planner, it's a HOUSEHOLD PLANNER too! A few years ago I wrote about my household notebook. My household notebook is in desperate need of a re-vamp, and all the amazing HOUSEHOLD forms in the 2010 Homeschool Planner are just perfect for the re-vamp, now to find the time to actually DO it! But wait, with all the lovely calendars and to do lists in the Homeschool Planner, I'm sure I'll be able to find more time in my days. If only I wasn't spending so much time reading all the recipes and homeschool articles and resource links and . . . 

Not only does the Homeschool Planner help you organize your home AND your homeschool, but for each month it provides ideas for unit studies and homeschool subjects as well. 

AND if you buy in the next couple of days (until August 15), you get an awesome free gift as well!!! I reviewed one of the Planner Modules here, and you get a whole year's worth of modules FREE!!! How great is THAT?!?!
