Need Some Organization Help? Try Dotmine

Hey Neighbors!

We have had a really hectic time the last two weeks.  We had four puppies go to their new homes.  Then my oldest son turned 21 and then one week later I hit the big 50.  Wow!  Anyway, somehow I need more organization now then ever.  Between homeschooling,  both son's work schedules, one in college, TKD class and just general living sometimes I feel like I am in a whirlwind.  Add to that keeping track of review products and scheduled reviews and I needed a personal day planner.

I really like the Dotmine planners because they come in a variety of choices.  I am not just talking about design, but the actual planner setup inside.  They have Life Planners, Family Time Planners and Personal Planners that work great for students.  I had a hard time choosing one to review.  I needed one, but my son who just started college could probably use one too.  Maybe I will purchase one for him for the next semester.

My Family Time Planner has many different features.  I like that it is spiral bound with a sturdy, protective plastic cover.  Inside you will find:
17 Month Planner
Monthly Planners
Weekly Planners
Perforated Margins for Tear Out Lists and Note Pages
Plastic Coil, Spiral Bound
Back Pocket for papers
Unique Master Schedule and Planning Guides

There is a master schedule for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.  This is where you list regulating occurring activities.  Next you have a couple pages to enter personal information.  You then have a monthly calendar followed by weekly calendars for that month.  I really appreciate this feature.  I also like the perforated lists on the side of each page.  This enables me to scribble down shopping lists, notes, directions, etc.  The back of the planner has an area for notes, addresses and phone numbers and babysitter information.

I am filling out my Family Planner and using it on a regular basis.  I will even take it on trips so that I stay on schedule.  As you can see above I already have our NQC trip on the calendar!

How would you use a Dotmine Planner?  Homeschooling? Blogging? Family?  If you are interested in a Dotmine Planner, take a minute to visit their site and see what they have available.

Oh, and Dotmine is sponsoring a giveaway!  One neighbor will receive a Family_Time.Mine.  So be sure to enter and share this with others!  Thanks again for stopping by!  See you soon.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
