Dotmine Planner Review + Giveaway

>

I am admittedly a scatterbrained person at times. However, I absolutely LOVE organizers, lists, and all things orderly. I love the feeling of having things planned out and written down, so I can see what the next day, week, or even month will look like. Now with three kids, I’m even more in need of a great planner in order to keep doctor’s appointments, recitals, rehearsals, and school events straight. I used to just keep things scheduled in my lame cell phone calendar, but it’s so not user friendly, and I’m more of a pen and paper kind of girl.

I discovered DotMine planners through Facebook, and my world has been organized ever since! My life_time.mine planner is my go-to organizer to keep everything in order, from blog posts to flight arrival information. The trouble I’d had with other planners was that there was either a lack of space to really write everything down, or there was an entire page dedicated to one day, itemized by hour, and that’s just too cluttered for me. My DotMine planner has just the right amount of space to jot down important information so that I can find it again easily when I need to reference it. With it’s sleek moleskin-esque cover, ribbon page marker, and elastic closure, it’s perfect for tossing into my bag when I know I’ll need it on the go. I love the folder on the back inside cover, too! I keep coupons, business cards, and other necessary snippets of paper in there. It’s perfect!

They’ve got tons of new covers coming out, too! They’re way cute!

I’d truly be lost without my planner. DotMine wants to get you organized, too! One lucky Freckleberry Finds reader will win a planner from DotMine!
