2013 Weekly Household Planner from The Confident Mom (Giveaway + Discount)

  ATTENTION all busy moms!!  
I have been looking for a complete and easy way to be organized weekly- I found it!  Susan Heid at The Confident Mom has created a weekly planner with everything on it, including household tasks to complete each day.  I don't know about you, but I can get distracted and overwhelmed rather quickly.  I have a million things to do and I don't get to them because I don't plan.  However, Susan has already done ALL the planning for me.  I have been using this planner for a few months and I can see a difference in my day.  I feel much more confident and also I don't have to take extra time figuring out what needs to be done.

Each weekly page contains the day, date, place to fill in dinner menu, 4-5 household tasks, a Bible reading (optional version), extra space for more items on your lists, tracking water intake and weekly tasks due to seasonal activities.  Most of these items take 3-30 minutes to complete and you don't have to do them all, but you will see a pattern quickly developing and your house and schedule will be in top shape as you follow these simple guidelines.  You can even delegate tasks for other family members.

Here’s a sample of the types of tasks you will find in this planner:
Plan/cook dinner
Water indoor plants
Vacuum under furniture
Clean/wipe out silverware drawer
Clean bathroom sinks/shine mirrors
Wash car
Pay bills due
Pamper yourself
Replace smoke detector batteries
Quiet time (Gen 4-6; Matt 2) (Note: A version without the Bible study is also available.)

You can personalize the planner by adding special weekly tasks or notes to remember. A fun inspirational quote is featured each week to remind you about the joys, and sometimes humor, of family
and motherhood.

In addition, a Weekly Household Planner Supplement is available to further increase organization in your
household. The supplement includes these helpful tools:
*Master Family Planner to keep track of the entire family’s activities on a daily/weekly basis.
*Special Occasion Calendar/Gift Planner so you’ll always be prepared for the next birthday or
special occasion.
*Holiday Gift Planner Worksheet to keep track of your holiday shopping list and purchases.
*Babysitter Information Form so your sitter has all the important info he or she needs.
*Quick Contacts to keep important contacts available for easy reference when you need them in a
hurry as well as frequently used numbers.
*Family Emergency/Medical Information Form to keep medical and insurance info easy to find and
share with those that need it.
*Website/App List for Kids so you can record websites/apps your kids are interested in.
*Website/App List for Me so you can record websites/apps you want to visit or buy.
*Account Keeper Sheet to keep track of online accounts, including usernames and passwords.
*Weekly Menu Planner/Shopping List so you arrive at the store prepared and don’t over-purchase.

Please watch my one minute video and see what 5 things I like about Susan's planner:

I am the mother of 4 who has recently moved and downsized to a house half the size of our previous house. Somehow all that house minus a couple of truck loads of stuff given to charity made it to our new house. We can't use the garage b/c 3/4 of it is full of my other house stuff. I am overwhelmed and struggling with when, how and what to get started. I would love a binder to help me organize getting through this mess and to help me get our lives organized!

I love to win this organizer! I feel like I spend so much time making lists, but I am terrible at setting priorities. I am tired of having stressful evenings- staying up late to finish things that have to be done before morning (lunches packed, clothes ready for everyone for the next day). We have busy schedules in our house and I struggle to find ways to accomplish chores in the little spaces of time that I have in between activities.

I need a new calendar and something to keep more organized and on task. I am so good at starting things and not keeping up with them or falling out of a routine. I know this would help me.

I'm a recently re-married mom who went from 1 son to 4 sons!!! Ages 3, 4, 9 & 9. My husband lost his job in May & finally found a decent job a month ago. Thank you Lord! Since July, we first lives with my parents for a month and are currently living with my husband's parents in a 2 bedroom basement apartment w/ 2 dogs! All 6 of us have had to share 1 bedroom for almost 5 months now. My husband's brother & sister-in-law live upstairs with their 2 boys & a girl on the way next month. We are moving into a small apartment in the next few weeks & we desperately need some organization in our new house! So many rules have changed since we've lived with family. Please help!!!! God bless you!

I have 3 boys with afterschool activities, and dr. appts. Plus I'm bad about keeping up with my house. I skim the surface, but it's cluttery. I definitely need some organization in my life.

I am trying so hard to get organized and my current "organizer" is just not working! I recently started my own business so I need to be organized more than ever!

I am a wife and mother of 4. I homeschool the oldest 3, teach piano lessons, help out at church, and serve as my oldest daughter's girl scout leader. To say the least, I am busy from morning to night. With all these things to juggle, I feel overwhelmed and out of touch most of the time. Organization is not my strongest quality and I could use something to help. The organizer looks like it would be perfect for me.

I need help getting organized! I am a wife and mother to two crazy kiddos, ages 4 and 6. Help me!

Bluerose said...

I am probably THE most unorganized person out there! This looks perfect for me!

Karen said...

My time management is the worst, so maybe this will assist me :)

itsme said...

Melissa said...

In our very first year of homeschooling here, and the area I'm falling behind is planning...because nothing seems to work for me to keep up with everything in one place! This will be just the ticket! :)

ff said...

All I want for Christmas is this organiser- to bring some order into my disorganised life and help me juggle my 3 little ones more efficiently.

I love the idea that this planner has some things I wouldn't think of already scheduled for me!
