I went to an all girls high school. In this school we had to wear uniforms, everything had to be official: shirt, skirt, socks, and shoes (yes, even shoes). We also were
required taught to live and die by our school planner.
Ever since those fateful freshmen days when my planner become my life I have tired to break free from it. And I can’t. I need a new planner every September. I need the clean pages, the monthly and weekly view, the notes, the world maps, and super cute covers. Its like a drug to me. Even now when I am out of school and work year round, every end of July I start wanting,looking, waiting for the perfect planner.
This year is no exception.
want need a planner.
I need a monthly and weekly view.
I need a notes section and an address section.
I need it to be sturdy and cute.
And most important its need to fit in my purse (and yes I am willing to buy a larger purse to make sure it fits).
This year, I am on a strict budget. I really didn’t want to spend more than
$10, OK $15. I looked around at the typical places : Day Timer, At-A-Glance, Borders, Office Depot, Target. And all the ones I found were OK, or not starting until January. And the ones I liked were kinda expensive. Way over my $15 limit.
And then…. I…. Found…. momAgenda.
Amazing. If you haven’t heard or seen momAgendas, check out these planners ASAP. I am not a mom, yet, so I won’t be going for the big ($43) momAgenda – but they have other options for students (myPlan- $20) and working women (myAgenda – $36).
But the myAgenda is $36, WAY over my $15 limit. So being me, I checked out retailmenot.com. The best I could find was 10% off. Still over my budget. Then I saw momAgenda Rewards. Basically for every one that you refer to buy a momAgenda you get $10 (and they get 10% off). Who doesn’t love that? I signed up – posted my code on retailmenot.com – and this morning I have $40 in my momAgenda Rewards account. AKA, all I have to pay for is shipping – $8.95.Which leaves me room to maybe even get the planner engraved (cost- $4.95)!
If you have the time to wait, check out this momAgenda Rewards. And if don’t have the time, and really want a momAgenda use this 10% coupon: mom83429 (don’t enter it unitl the end of the checkout when it asks for any momAgenda Rewards codes).
So in a few days this baby will be mine:
I can’t wait.
Are you addicted to a good planner like I am? What is your go-to brand?
