Last school year has become known as "The Year of the Pencil Sharpener." Remember the craze last summer, August, September? Everyone was posting about this pencil sharpener...
I got mine (in red, of course) on August 18, 2012. (My purchase story is here. Many teachers can relate to it.) The sharpener went to school with me and 9 were ordered by PTO for our classrooms and the office. AMAZING.
My husband refers to the 2012-2013 school year as the "Year of the Pencil Sharpener." As in...
1. Remember, that happened in the year of the pencil sharpener.
2. We took a trip to Disney World in the year of the pencil sharpener.
It is time for the new year to begin. 2013-2014 is now known as "The Year of the Planner."
This was by my front door this afternoon. A box from Erin Condren.
(Not sure why the FedEx guy never rings the doorbell, I would smile and be polite to him...)
The fancy packaging.
The week after school was out, as I was blog reading, I came to a blog with a video that went through the planner, section by section. I was SOLD! But the price. Could I really justify it?
(Certainly wish I could remember whose blog I was at...There has to be a way to search--like in Google Reader--but I haven't figured it out.)
I tried to recreate the planner with free pages from TpT. But I still had to bind it, and the wonderful laminated front cover? So amazing.
With one day left in the teacher appreciation sale (15% off) my husband said, sure, order it.
I was hesitant, do I really do it? Will it be wonderful? Is there something better?
Yes, do it. It is wonderful. I have not seen anything better.
So begins the year of the planner.
