My Well Planned Day Software Review and Giveaway!


When I first started homeschooling, I tried using several different planners to help me plan our day.  With in a couple of weeks, I always stopped using them, either because they didn’t fit our needs or I got behind trying to write everything down that I wanted to keep track up.

At one time, my husband even created a weekly excel spreadsheet that I could right lesson plans in and I could print lessons for the day or even for the whole week on it.  I used it the longest for a couple of years.  However, it still did not have everything I wanted to keep track of on it.

As the years have gone by, I have turned more and more to the computer and online world to make up different plans, spreadsheets and calendars to help me keep track of our busy life with four children.  I have yet to find anything online to keep track of everything, until now.

When I went to the 2:1 Conference back in April, I had the pleasure of meeting Jenny from Home Educating Family.  We got to talking about the Well Planned Day Planners that Home Educating Family offered.  I had seen them before, but never bought one because it was paper and would have required me to write everything in.  Knowing my history with this, I knew it wasn’t the planner for me.  I asked her if Home Education Family had plans for making there planner online.  She said yes!  I was so excited and couldn’t wait to try it out when it became available.  Jenny contacted me about a month ago and asked if I would love to give it a try and I just couldn’t pass up this offer!

The My Well Planned Day software is amazing to me!  One of the things I love most about it, is that it combines School plus Household activities and events.  I can use the software to make lesson plans and assignments plus make a menu and grocery list!  The best of both worlds that I wanted together!  You can add the textbooks on here that you are using and keep track of the Literature that you are reading.  What has really gotten me excited is that I will soon be able to sync my Google calendar that my husband and I use, to the calendar on this software!

I really feel like the My Well Planned Day software is going to help me out so much.  I can already see areas that it has helped me in.  I would like for you to have the same chance to see if this awesome software will help you as much as it has me.

    I learned that the modules are super-detailed and customizable. 🙂

  7. August 31, 2012    

    This software looks amazing. I got to attend a workshop that Jenny led at the FPEA conference in May. I even spoke with her at the booth. I love the idea of the software, but being that we have to buy curriculum for 4 girls, I’ve had to put needs vs. wants out there first. I need a planner and I want this one really bad, but I had buy our textbooks first. I am hoping to sell some things to buy the software. (Or maybe a chance to win!!) Thank you for the opportunity!

  8. August 31, 2012    

    You can keep track of you school plans, menu plans, grocery list, chore list, appointments, activities and commitments all in one place. And for everyone in your family, so you know at the touch of a button what everyone is doing, or if things need to rearranged. Looks like a great piece of software. What a bless!

  9. August 31, 2012    

    I learned how you can keep everything in one place – genius!

  10. August 31, 2012    

    I love this idea!!! There are so many possibilities. I am concerned since it is still in beta but it looks like it has a lot of potential!!

  11. August 31, 2012

    I am always hesitant to post something negative, but I feel like I need to say give a word of caution for potential buyers. This product should be amazing in the future, however, as a former user, I have to warn against using it for the current school year. It still has many glitches and has been known to delete inputted assignments, after parents have spent hours imputing their lessons. I would recommend waiting a year for the bugs to get worked out before purchasing it for everyday use. Check out their Facebook page comments section.

      Hi Sandy! Thank you for letting us know that there can be an issue with this product. So far though, I haven’t had any problems. As with any new product, you will have glitches on occasion. After all, it is a computer product and we all know that computers and their programs are only as good as the people that are operating them. Even larger companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter still have issues after years of service. The good thing to know is that the company is working to make it work without any issues. Again, thank you for letting us know about this glitch.

  32. September 3, 2012    

    This would be amazing!!

  33. September 3, 2012    

    Bill reminders is what I learned not just for homeschooling!

  34. September 3, 2012    

    I like that I can not only manage school but the specifics of managing a home. I like being able to have everything in one place and minimizing paper clutter.

    I would love to have this as I have been looking for something to help organize my schooling and life. This will be the first year we start schooling this year and I would love to have this help me keep everything organized.

  36. September 3, 2012    

    I’m so excited to see that it’s computerized! I can put chores for the farm, school for the 5 and plan for dinner? That’s the planner for me!

  37. September 3, 2012    

    i learned that you can color code family members schedules!

  38. September 3, 2012

      I love that apps are coming soon! With only one computer and two kids with computer school work, it would be great to follow along on my phone when the computer is in use!

    Each family member is color coded there is 7 of us and it can manage all our schedules from work to homeschooling 5 different ages, doctor schedules and extra activities. This is just what I have been looking for but just don’t have the budget for it

    This product had great potential, and a number of us were really excited about it a year ago. Sadly, none of the promises were fulfilled, and the program is barely usable, despite the fact that it is still being marketed and sold. I waited patiently for over a year because I so wanted them to have enough time make it work. Sadly, now I’ll have to go spend even more money to subscribe to an online planner that actually does what it is supposed to do. Very disappointing.
