My friend Deb from Paper Tree Designs makes lovely, whiteboard, dry-erase, magnetic, family weekly planners. I keep mine on the fridge.
With this planner, we know at a glance who needs to be where or do what during the coming week. Workshops, youth group, meetings, church, homeschooling events, get-togethers with friends… Each person gets a column and we fill in their activities for the week.
Not only functional — but beautiful. Mine is green like the one pictured. Deb also makes them in blue and pink.
Would you like to win one?
I know you do! We’re giving away five of these beauties to anyone, anywhere. The giveaway details are below.
Before we get to that, here are few words from Deb about why she created this planner. She’s a busy mum of three from Australia.
It’s a common complaint of busy parents that there aren’t enough hours in the day. Families can take a sigh of relief with the launch of Paper Tree Designs My Family Weekly Planner; a reusable un-dated organiser.
Utilising a reusable, soft A3 size whiteboard, this weekly family calendar features a strong magnet backing, which is simply attached to any magnetic surface, such as the kitchen fridge – allowing all members of the family to contribute. A unique feature of the family organiser is its un-dated layout, meaning its reusable year-in, year-out and is ideal for purchase at any time of the year.
The My Family Weekly Planner is the brainchild of Debora, a busy mum of 3. Like all mums Debora was busy juggling sports, a part time job, music lessons, school activities, a busy social calendar and a myriad of shopping lists and notes. Debora was convinced there was an easier and environmentally friendlier way, but could not find what she was looking for and so the daily planner was born. Debora says “I love the fact that no longer is there a need for endless paper, notes, post it notes and scribbles in my kitchen as it can all be tracked on the weekly planner and then cleaned off and reused. So clean and simple and the kids love to use it.”
Australian designed and made, the planner is available in a choice of three gorgeous colours. Priced at only $24.99, the weekly planner is ideal to assist the busy family stay organised and keep a track of the many activities each week. Featuring planning space for mum, dad and up to four children, the multi-feature design allows Paper Tree Designs Weekly Planner to be used as a weekly or daily planner, chore chart, reward chart or menu organiser. The planner also has a tracking area ideal for the endless shopping and ‘to-do’ lists, notes and reminders.
Taking careful steps to ensure that the business is environmentally and socially responsible, Paper Tree Designs utilises recyclable materials and donates $1 from every sale to World Vision.
