I really loved the planner and was looking forward to using it!  But there is one thing that didn’t work out for me, and that is that there are only special pages for 4 children (planning pages, school-work, report cards, attendance sheets, etc.).   Since I will be homeschooling 6 children this next year, I have decided to give away my preview copy (brand new) as well as the copy that Home Educating Family is going to provide!  Trust me, if you have 4 or less kids to homeschool next year, you will find this to be a great help.

Enter to win one of two Well-Planned Day Planners!  Winners will be chosen next Monday, July 15, 2013.

To enter to win my preview copy (brand new), all you need to do is leave me a comment.  You will need to live within driving distance of me, since I’m not going to mail it.  (If you aren’t sure if you’re close enough, send an email to gena at ichoosejoy dot org.)

To enter to win a brand new copy from Home Educating Family, see here:
(For legal reasons, this giveaway is open to US residents only.)

Update: The winners are Mechelle C. and Erika R.

  2. Hi Gena, Have you tried the planner in e-book format? You could print off additional copies of the special pages for all of your children. Just a thought.
    It is a great planner!

  3. I’ve been wanting one of these! 🙂 I have 5 boys but only 4 will be doing “real” school this year so this is perfect!

  4. What a great resource for Moms who homeschool. My daughter is 28 and will be having children soon, it is great to know that all this information is available. I’m linking from Mama Moments. Kim

  5. Love that planner. Have used it for 2 years now, but haven’t bought next year’s yet!

  6. Jennifer Thomas says:

    Looks like they thought of everything!

  7. Lora Schmitz says:

    Everyone says I “need” to try this planner! Looks wonderful!

  8. I just have 2 students and would LOVE this beautiful planner. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been enjoying your blog!

  9. Can I provide the shipping cost?

    1. That’s kind of you, Jennifer. But I just didn’t want to add anything more to my plate. (Going to the post office with 8 kids isn’t too fun). 🙂

  10. Amy Osborn says:

    I would love to win a planner, but not sure where you are located.

  11. Shannon Brown says:

    Hi Gena! I would love to win one of these great planners!! Thank you for the chance! I wanted to add that I think that if you purchase postage online thru the PO website, you might be able to schedule a pickup from your house when they bring you your daily mail. I believe folks can arrange this thru eBay…so I thought this night help you out in the future. Thanks and God bless!! 🙂

    1. I hadn’t thought of that, Shannon. I’ll keep that in mind for the future. 🙂 For this giveaway, however, I won’t be mailing it. Sorry, everyone! This is definitely the most people I’ve ever had interested in a giveaway. I’ll be more “user-friendly” for future giveaways!

  12. I’ve been wanting to try out this planner along with their High School Planner as well. Thank you for the opportunity to win one. 🙂

  13. Lissette Guzman says:

    Hi Gena,
    That planner/calendar looks very impressive. I prefer paper over electronics. So, I would definitely, use it. Whoever is blessed with either copy will be prepared.

  14. I’m only entering my second year of homeschooling and have seen this planner on other sites. It looks amazing!! Great resource for keeping everything organized.

  15. Erika rutherford says:

    This is awesome!! Would love to win! New to homeschooling this year and this looks like it would help me stay organized!
