Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin Eater

I have a confession to make.

I have talked before about my love for my momAgenda (not on this blog as it is new, but on my blog that I write with my friends...keep up, people!). I have used a momAgenda for about 4 years now, and it really keeps me in line. Which is saying a lot.

I am really hard to keep in line.
However, I was perusing the internet one day and found this:
It has a different format than the momAgenda:
It has a lot of fun colors and cute illustrations:

Even the tabs are colorful:

There are even stickers in the back for marking special dates or whatever other reasons you may have for using stickers (just please don't tell my children that they are back there.):

I tried to ignore this cute little agenda.

Then I bought one for our wonderful summer babysitter as a going-back-to-college gift.

Then I reasoned with myself that my momAgenda is wonderful and all, but it is a little bulky. I can't fit it in my purse when I am running in somewhere and don't want to actually carry my planner. So, I decided, I could use a small one to slip in my purse. That way I could use two planners! And, to me, that is just so exciting!

I know that last paragraph makes me sound totally crazy. I can handle it.

The only problem with the LP agenda that I got is that it isn't actually that much smaller than my momAgenda. It does fit in my bag better, so I am sticking to my original plan. However, it isn't small and discreet in my bag, so it probably won't be a permanent fixture in there.

I could have just ordered the Lilly Pulitzer Pocket Agenda. But I don't like to have to write small.

I could have just ordered the momAgenda Mini Daily planner. But it only has one day per page, and I find it too confusing to have to flip pages back and forth all the time. And, I don't like having to write in the crease where the two pages meet. It makes my handwriting look weird.

I know. I'm weird and quirky when it comes to my handwriting. You would think from reading this post that I am totally Type A.

I am totally not.

Anyway, there are pluses to both agendas. I still stand by my momAgenda and will continue to use it for many years to come. I will see how it goes with the LP agenda this year.

Don't worry, I will keep you posted! ;-)

But for now, if you are looking for a planner for this new year, I would highly recommend both!

I love this agenda; it's so pretty.
I have a similar planner, alas, out of sight, out of mind. It somewhere on a shelf...over there. :-)

I am having a day planner crisis...just can't find one I LOVE. It is one area of my life where I am a bit obsessed. I have a list of requirements that my planner must possess and so far I am at a loss. Sad, I know.

Happy New Year and I love the new blog!
