Review & Giveaway ~ “A Plan in Place” Planner {High School}

Organization is something we are working diligently on this year as it has been something lacking in previous years. I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER about this coming school year! It will be the first year I WILL NOT BE WORKING AT ALL!!! (Can you tell I am excited!?!?!) With this new motivation to be organized and focused on our year, I thought I would see if I could find a High School Planner for J as he seems to like to write down his assignments each day / week. Enter A Plan in Place‘s High School CUSTOMIZABLE Planner!

I would like to quickly open with the fact that A Plan in Place is owned by two homeschooling moms who started this business as a way to help others with their scheduling and planning needs. Isn’t that awesome!?!?!?!

So…for this review we received a CUSTOMIZABLE High School Planner as well as the “Small Activity Pack” as shown below.

I have ordered several planners over our homeschooling years. Mostly for myself but I have ordered one for J in previous years. This planner is one of THE BEST I’ve ever seen! The planner itself starts at $19.99 – a competitive price.

When you place your order you have the choice of eight different color, laminated covers. J chose “Idea” as he felt it looked “schooly”. *grin* This is what you see when you open the cover. Notice the tabs on the right…LOVE!

The “Goals & Planning” section contains: My Autobiography, Goals, Chores/Responsibilities, Time Schedule, Saving/Spending Plan, Graduation Pathway, Four Year Credit Plan, Long Range Planning, Course Detail and Curriculum/Supplies List.

At the time you place your order you can decide if you want a 12-month calendar section added for $0.99. We chose to have it added. This adds one page with all of the current years (one on each side front & back) as well as one-page per month of the year (you get to pick what month to start).

After that you get to choose your weekly schedule set up. THIS IS THE FUN PART! You can choose the “stock” schedule…or you can CUSTOMIZE for ONLY $4.99! (GO FOR CUSTOMIZED – SERIOUSLY!) When you choose to customize you first pick if you want a one-page or a two-page layout. Good thing I asked J what he wanted as he chose two-page (whereas I was going to choose one-page). So…NOW we get down to business…what subjects do you want listed on the left? What headings do you want across the top? Do you want weekends, or not? What is the students name? You get 40-weeks included in the planner.

You can also put whatever Scripture or other verbiage would you like across the bottom. We chose this verse:

What items do you want listed in the “Daily Checklist” and what “misc note” box headings do you want?

Did I mention CUSTOMIZED!?!?!?! LOVE!!!

The “Notes & Record Keeping” section contains: Attendance Record, Activity Tracker, Field Trip Records, Book Journal, Grading Sheets, Progress Reports, Transcript Builder, several lined pages for notes and finally a year end review.

Finally you can decide if you want any pockets to hold things in the back. If you do you can add one or two for $0.99 each. (We chose to have two added.) We did not get to pick the color (which didn’t matter to us) and we received a blue one and a white one.

Then the final decision you need to make is if you want an accessory pack. We chose to have the small accessory pack added which was a self-adhesive pen loop (so your pencil or pen can be easily kept with your planner! which was VERY EASY to put on!), a PaperMate pencil and two placement paperclips. LOVE these too! [You could definitely do without this pack but it is a fun addition.]

Would I recommend this to others? ABSOLUTELY! As a matter of fact I am tossing around the idea of buying the “Early Learning Edition” Planner for P! They also have a Student Planner, Teacher Planner and Summer Planner! Head over and check them out! You can find everything you need to know about how it works under their “Helpful Information” page.

I am SO EXCITED we found this planner and that we got to share this review with you! Now…you know the best thing? I GET TO OFFER ONE OF MY READERS A $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE for “A Plan in Place” so someone can order one of these amazing planners for themselves!! Enter below…

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

    Love that it is customizable!

      The high school student planner looks wonderful. Can’t wait to hear how it works for you in planning his specific classes.

    The planner looks great! I love the fact that you can customize it. I really like the idea of the goals and planning section.

    If I were to pick, it would be the highschool planner with flowers for my daughter! Thanks, Dawn, for the review.


  6. Kristen August 2, 2014 at 12:05 pm Reply

    I would order the High School Student planner for my daughter.


  7. Jen B August 2, 2014 at 2:17 pm Reply

    I would order the Homeschool Teacher Edition or the High School Student Edition. Honestly it was very hard to pick just one. These are great. I gave up on planners because I could never find one that was a good fit for us. Thank you for this review.

    I have no idea which one I would try! My oldest has a planner coming for this year so I would either choose the early learner version for my youngest or a student planner (stock) for my middle child. Probably the early learner version – it would make her feel really special.


  9. Kristi Jo August 4, 2014 at 11:33 am Reply

    I need to get a student planner for my oldest this year.


  10. Lisa R @ A Rup Life August 4, 2014 at 4:25 pm Reply

    I would like the high school edition.


  11. Wendy August 4, 2014 at 4:55 pm Reply

    My kids are elementary age, so I would choose the Student Edition (non high school).


  12. Lynn @ TDHGP August 5, 2014 at 9:36 am Reply

    J would really benefit from the High School Planner, but I would really like the Teacher Edition so it’s a toss-up right now. 🙂


  13. Lexi August 8, 2014 at 8:38 am Reply

    I think I would want the Homeschool Mom Planner. I didn’t do a great job with planning and record keeping last year.


  14. Michelle Mansfield August 14, 2014 at 9:04 pm Reply

    Love the looks of these planners. I want the student one!


  15. Jenn Kasprzak August 14, 2014 at 10:00 pm Reply

    The high school edition for sure would be the one I choose and totally customized,


  16. Dianne Pfouts August 15, 2014 at 8:22 am Reply

    I would love to win the High School Edition! Wow, these are super cool! thanks so much!!


  17. Kim maxwell August 15, 2014 at 8:23 am Reply

    Either the mom edition or early student.


  18. Sara K. August 15, 2014 at 8:31 am Reply

    I would choose the Homeschool Mom Planner for my daughter. You can’t ever be too organized!


  19. Lisa McClanahan August 15, 2014 at 9:17 am Reply

    I would choose the High School planner.


  20. Maureen August 15, 2014 at 9:46 am Reply

    I truly never thought that I would need or use planner until this year as I have three children formally schooling……a good teacher’s planner is a must! Thank you.


  21. Joan Foley August 15, 2014 at 9:55 am Reply

    I would choose the student planner. My daughter is so excited to have a planner this year!


  22. Lisa Keva August 15, 2014 at 3:09 pm Reply

    We could really use this!


  23. Lisa Keva August 15, 2014 at 3:10 pm Reply

    OOPS – I’d pick the highschool student planner
