This has been my first school supply purchased for the past several years. Why? I am a planner. The school year doesn't start until I have a plan and a filled in monthly calendar.
My Mead Planners
My strategy every year is to color code my calendar. This year, I am simplifying. Items written in green are for my personal life. Why? Green is my favorite color. Simple enough! Items for school are written in blue. Why? Our school colors are navy and tan, and I like blue more than brown. Duh! Just kidding! Now the hard part, keeping blue and green pens near my calendar. Last year, I started with blue, green, and pink. By the end of the year, my calendar was bleeding red. It was the handiest color on my desk. Oops!
Now, why do I love the Mead planner?
* Clear plastic sleeve for a cover - This means that I can download my favorite cover from my favorite TPT seller or create my own and slip it in.
* Pre-printed and bound - As much as I love creating and printing things from my computer, this is one thing that is already done at the beginning of another busy school year.
What I don't love about this years Mead planner? (Just in case someone from Mead reads this post.)
* No covered spiral
* No pen loop
* No checkboxes for completed tasks
* July 2014 - June 2015 - I already had a July calendar. I really need a calendar from August 2014 - July 2015. Just sayin'!
