2015 Daily Planner by Sue Hooley, A Review

I am EXCITED! You all KNOW how much I LOVE FREE STUFF!! Well, I was blessed with the opportunity to review a fabulous product! I reviewed Sue Hooley's 2014 AND 2015 Daily Planner! Yes! Two products for the price of one!

*Sue Hooley and CWA Review Crew provided me with a complimentary copy of “2014 & 2015 Daily Planner” to read/use in order to write my review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions expressed here are purely and truthfully my own and uncompensated.

About the Author & Product:
The Daily Planner was designed by Sue, wife of Dan for 24 years and mother to six lovely children, two girls and four boys ages 5-21. The planner was developed after several years of motherhood and homemaking. Sue understood that a homemaker's day can rarely be scheduled and structured the same as the one before – not every task can fit neatly into the time-slot allotted by other planners. Since her first publication in 2010, thousands of homemakers have benefited from the daily planner.

NOW! My Thoughts!...
So, this planner has a ton of features (most listed above) but there are a couple of user friendly features I want to highlight.

  1. First, what I really like is the bible scriptures posted through out the book. On each weekly page there is a bible scripture which can easily be used a a weekly devotion! 
  2. Another feature that I actually love is that on each weekly page there is a small monthly calendar with the current week highlighted! This is good because if you are scheduling events for a certain week you can clearly see the month at a glance to see which week (1st-5th) you are working on. 
  3. I also like the fact that the top of the weekly pages have a dotted line that says "cut here". Now unless you use planners a lot this may not be a big thing for you BUT believe me, being able to cut the edges of helps you open the planner back up and be able to find your current month/week immediately! VERY HELPFUL!!
  4. The last page of the planner is actually a Folder Pocket! You can stick coupons, receipts, notes, or business cards in there for safe keeping or easy access! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!
  5. The cover has very pretty artwork. The book could have had different pictures for the dividers but the cover art is very nice.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this planner! On a scale of 1-10, I give this planner a solid 9! 

I actually wanted to give this planner an overall 10 HOWEVER one MAJOR drawback for me was that the planner/book is NOT refillable! So that means every note, birthday, anniversary, phone number or address, etc that I write in it I will have to REWRITE next year in the next planner. UGH!!!!! How very frustrating to have to rewrite all of the information! But that is a minor deterrent because everything else about the planner is AWESOME!
This makes a GREAT GIFT! To pick up your copy you can go HERE, HERE, or HERE!


HAPPY PLANNING!!
