I love to stay organized! This love is greatly aided by a daily planner. Unfortunately the binding of the last one I had came apart and basically ruined the book. I couldn't open it without the pages falling out! Grr. Time for a new one! Here's is my review/overview/share-all of the new planner I bought.
The company is called "MintGreen".
The sticker on the front states that it's a monthly and weekly planner, is 60% recycled, printed with soy-based ink (so many uses for soy!), is considered an "eco good", and the barcode. The product was made in Taiwan.
One thing I noticed right away is that due to the binding, the planner does not stay open by itself.
The first page has the company, eco goods label, and the time range of the planner.
The next two pages are for personal information and important numbers.
Next up is a schedule listing! This will be very helpful in the fall, and since I've already registered for classes I can fill this section out right away. Because there are so many lines, I will be able to fit next semester's schedule as well, in addition to club and organization meetings!
The next pages are home to the year-long month calendar views for all of both 2015 and 2016.
Following that are a list of U.S. holidays and important dates laid out by month. There is no year specification, but since the planner is July 2015 to June 2016, no months will overlap.
Here's the monthly view. There is decent writing space for each of the calendar days, along with a section for notes on the side in case you can't fit all your info in! There's also a month view of the previous and upcoming months. July is green, but for each month the pages are a different color!
Following the month planner are two pages for notes. The first is a page of graph paper (I don't know what I would use this for) and the second is lined paper. The top right corner of every few pages has a quote. For July's note page it says "know your own happiness" by Jane Austen.
Here is the weekly view. There is a good portion of room to write in each day!
Now for the back of the planner! All of these pages come after the month and weekly views. There are several pages for notes, alternating between graph and line paper.
The brown pages after notes are for contacts. There's an okay amount of space for names and phone numbers/addresses. My handwriting is large enough though that each one would take a couple lines.
The pink pages are for internet resources. The first page is to record important websites and or blogs. The second page wants you to write down logins and password information. That's okay if you know that no one sketchy will ever get ahold of the book. Just to be on the safe side though, I'm not going to write down anything about my accounts!
Then there's a giant listing of equivalents and conversions. Might come in handy some day...
The next four pages contain three maps: one of the world, one of Europe, and one of the United States.
The very last page has lined paper on which to put your yearly goals. I love making goals and will fill this page out ASAP! Hopefully some will be fulfilled a year from now!
To-da! Back cover!
This planner is attractive and looks very promising! The only small downside I've found so far is that it doesn't stay open by itself. Overall though it seems to be a good find at only $7. I can use it more once July comes around, and will see how it goes from there!
