I am an OC Mom and if you read my guest post over at OCMominManila, you can see how planners play an important part in my oc-ness! 😉  And this is why I got pretty excited when Shirley sent me this new planner to review – MomMe Planner.

This project was started in 2009 by a group of 4 college friends – Cherry, Carissa, Mira and Shirley.  During one of their Sunday get-togethers, they realized that there were young adults planners, teen planners, travel planners, foodie planners, etc. but no planners out in the market that was specifically targeted for moms.  They realized that their schedules often got mixed up as the moms are typically busy and often lose time for themselves.

Knowing that the secret to being a successful mom is to be organized, it took them 1 year to design the planner – from bag, straps, slings, contents.  Ideas, insights and opinions were combined and collaborated and they identified what important information moms needed to have in their planners.  The planner is complete with financial sheets, medical forms, grocery lists, meal planners to help moms become the best that they can be! With that, MomMe Planner was launched this year with the goal of putting the “ME” time back to each “MOM”.

Top feature of the planner for me would be the at-a-glance family schedule:

I previously used this Big Grid Family Organizer to keep track of the schedules. But since it was hanging on the wall, I couldn’t regularly update it so it ended up unused for the remaining half of the year!  I also love the Essential Details and Numbers List:

Having all the renewal dates and important phone numbers in one planner would be very handy especially I keep track of this information not only for my family but for my in-laws as well.  However, since this information is attached to the 2012 planner I would have to re-write everything in my 2013 planner!  I think it would be great if some pages are detachable so you can just easily transfer them to your new planner next year.
One feature I probably won’t use though is the password list page:

Since I can’t guarantee that I won’t lose or misplace this planner, I think I am better off not writing down my passwords and usernames.  However, the holiday gift budget planner would be quite handy for me especially since I shop for Christmas gifts as early as March and continue to do so throughout the year!
The MomMe Planner is 100% handmade and comes in 2 styles – Cross-body or French Pochette.  It has 10 lovely colors – EXOTIC (croc-embossed faux leather) in bronze or platinum; LUXE (French calfskin faux leather) in silver, gold, antique, titanium or blush and POSH (silky satin finish) in Icy Silver, Bubbly Champagne or Warm Cinnamon.  Prices range from P980 to P1,280 and there is sure to be a MomMe Planner to suit your style!
