It's not even the last day of school and I'm already thinking about next year! I'm organizing novels, rewriting my book lists, and trying to write myself notes to remember things for next year. While thinking about next year I came across the best planner... It's like my dream planner. I'm super frugal but school supplies are my utter weakness. I'm pretty sure I'm going to pull the trigger on this planner... you have a to live a little right? This year, I did a DYI binder. It worked very well but I still had all my separate grade book, lesson planner, etc. And, I still didn't have the planner of my dreams! I feel like every year I spend more time searching for what I "want" and not finding anything that meets my criteria. I even looked into customizing my own so I could have everything I actually need in one place. And then came this little number....
This planner is basically the Lexus of teacher planners. It has it all and more. Including TABS and checklists, in addition to colored lesson plan spaces. And (gasp!) it even has a two page spread of each month at a glance! Perhaps my favorite thing of all it includes sheet protectors (made in) ... this is what I've been dreaming about in the teacher planner world. I got giddy from watching the 9 minute video demoing the planner. Who does that?
You can check out more of the planners and stationary at ErinCondren.com. (And watch the video!). It's definitely not frugal - but it sure is fabulous!
Shoe string lesson: Sometimes, you just have to splurge on something you really want whether it be new shoes or a 2013 Teacher planner.
