"One change suggested . . ."
(Texas) on September 03, 2011
I've used this planner for several years and love it . . .with one exception. I wish the week began on Sunday rather than Monday. I know why you do it the way you do, but I just can't get used to it and it drives me nuts. Most other calendars begin on Sunday.You could at least offer both choices.
"Best Organizer Ever!"
(Honolulu) on April 15, 2012
Believe me I have spent many $$$$ trying to find a planner that helps me keep track of the schedules and tasks for my family with class! I was tired of the institutional look of most planners. I could do without dark plastic covers smothered in spiral binding. This is like no other! I have been using this planner for 4 years. The stunning colors of the bound versions are beautiful and gracefully sit on my bookshelf for future reference. I have been through one major revision, preferring that the monthly view immediately precede the weekly but I have lived through this. The 17 months also are one of the main reasons I believe this planner functions well. It provides you with seamless planning and documentation on real life size pages and spaces for further appointments and tasks. This is such a brilliant feature that I see more planners convert to this 17 month format and begin in August. Kudos to Nina. This

I really like the planner. They are a little pricey but worth it. I do not like useing the computer for planning out the week and month. There is plenty of room for everything. I use this for work and home works great. They are made very well and hold up well.
(Kitchener, ON) on April 29, 2012
This would make a great Mother's Day gift for me as I have recently have become a single parent to a fantastic little boy. I currently make my own agenda books because I can never find anything to fit my needs. I am trying to decide between the purple and tangerine colours if I were to win this fabulous momAgenda
"just what i was looking for"
(pennsylvania- pittsburgh area) on May 01, 2012
As a busy mom of 4 kids who works full time and attends college, I have searched for a long time for a planner that can fit all my needs. I love the animal print choice and that it has enough lines to track me and the kids so I can keep everything straight. The only thing that would make it better would be if it had grocery list tear outs!
"Best Planner Ever"
(Bakersfield CA) on June 08, 2012
This is the best planner! I think I would love it more if it was a January to December planner instead of it starting mid year. Those are extra pages that can be used for something else. P.S. I paste my family pictures on those pages... LOL I have been using this planner year after year. I would highly recommend it as I have a large family, full time job and a family business and thanks to this planner I have never missed an appointment!

I use my momagenda for work and keeping track of the schedule of two children. This book is amazing. It holds together well and is exceptionally helpful!!!!
"Couldn't live w/out my Mom Agenda"
(Alpharetta Georgia) on December 01, 2011
With 3 kids and very busy schedules, my day is a hectic one. Every morning when I wake up I check my agenda to see what is going on that day. What I have to do, what the kids' activities are, what I'm making for dinner, etc. It helps me be more efficient with my time. When I drink a glass of wine that I really like, I jot it down under the "wine" section. When someone tells me about a book they read and enjoyed, I note it under the "book" section. Even Christmas present ideas go on one of the blank pages. My Mom Agenda is completely full by December and can't wait to get a new one for Christmas each year. The best thing i"ve ever used. It goes in my purse every where I go! I would be lost without it. It would be a great idea to give the busy mom as a gift. Who wouldn't want to get up each morning and know her day will run smoothly as long as she has this wonderful Agenda.

I have had several Momagendas and I love them!!! Nothing I would change except for the color every year :)

I live by this calendar. I love that it has weekly and monthly calendars. I love the bright colors it offers too.
(Los Angeles, CA) on May 11, 2012
OMG! I love my momagenda desktop! My husband picked out the Giraffe cover and I am always getting compliments on it. I feel so organized. I have two kids and a dog so I use the spots for them. I would love a Jan-Dec more but I Love this product so much that I can live with the 17mos. I get to go shopping for a new agenda a lot sooner :) Thanks!
"A "must have" for the organized Mom!"
(CT) on October 15, 2011
Was looking for a product that I could tote along with me. My schedule is all over the place with lots of appointments and traveling, but the best feature for me was to look below my day and see what my kids had planned as well. There was never enough room to write all that information in the traditional datebooks. My only complaint is the weight of this book, but I didn't take any stars away since this is supposed to be the home version....so that one is entirely on me! Went with the zebra look and get compliments all the time. I love products that actually make your life easier!
"Love my momAgenda but hope for one change"
(Texas) on August 29, 2012
I love my momAgenda Desktop. It keeps all of my family's schedules organized in one place, and I don't leave home without it. It is very durable and so functional. My only complaint is that there is only a 17-month calendar option for the Desktop. I would love for their to be a 12 or 13 month option since it is necessary to buy one every year or pay for 5 months worth of calendar that isn't going to be used.
"Love My MomAgenda Desk Top"
(Houston, Tx Area) on September 10, 2012
Love my MomAgenda Desk Top planner. I have two young boys and with all their activities I couldn't keep things straight. This is my second planner and will keep buying it every year. It has space to keep each person's scheule.
(Billings, MT) on August 13, 2012
Pros: Great colors and textures. I love the animal prints and bright colors. I always get compliments on it. My Essentials is great to be able to transfer from year to year. Calendar is easy to use. Lots of writing space. I like the "dinner" section Cons: I too don't like wasting pages. So I would prefer if it ran from Aug. to Aug.
"my favorite for 5 years!"
(Columbus, OH) on August 22, 2012
I have just started using my fifth Mom Agenda Desktop. I've tried to go smaller, but it just doesn't work for all that I write. I can't live without this planner! I used to use the bottom section for each of my kids, but since I like to see my day in order, instead I use the top portion for the family calendar and the bottom section for to-do's on specific days. Weekly to-do's or goals go in the 'My Week' section. These books display beautifully in my office when I am finished and I love to go back and remember events/days from previous years. Please, please, please consider going to a 12-13 month calendar instead of 18 month!! Because I buy a new one every year, I am always lugging around 5-6 extra months worth of pages.
"Love this planner!"
(North Carolina) on August 31, 2012
I am extremely picky about which journal I will use. I looked at MANY before deciding on this one. It's darn near perfect! I love the lay-out. What made all the difference was following the review advice below from April 2012. Adding the month tabs with post-it, adding the large pockets to the front and back covers and adding a looped pen holder made this planner flawless! It's worth making the minor adjustments because everything else about this calendar is GREAT. I love the layout, the extra information provided in the front, all the included areas for recording information, and the durability of the cover and pages. Wish I could include a photo with review. I love how great mine looks!
(Oklahoma) on September 05, 2012
I love this product! It's stylish, yet very functional. My favorite color I've owned is the soft gold, but I'm tempted Togo with the leopard this year!
(Chicago) on September 12, 2012
This agenda has been my sanity-saver for years! There is nothing comparable on the market, that I can find at least. I use everything, even the vacation planner. I could not imagine how i would operate my hectic schedule without this.
"How NOT to live without a MOMAgenda"
(Crowley) on September 13, 2012
THE BEST!!!! I cannot live without my Momagenda!!! The momagenda is one thing that I tell every one of my friends to get. It helps me stay organized not only for my kids multiple activities and my crazy schedule. I love the lined pages in the back so helpful for PTO meetings or my daughters Special Ed meetings! I also use the grocery list and permision slips for weekly help. Thank you for making my life better with the little miricles of life...Mom Agenda!! Thank YOU for making my life better!!

A friend of mine that owns The Trendy Trunk in Nashville turned me on to MomAgenda about 5 years ago, I can not live with out it. I don't use a smart phone because I have this and it is much easier to use. ( Ha ha) Thanks for making a great product.
"Will never use another day planner!"
(PA- Philly suburbs) on December 03, 2012
I love this day planner so much I will never use another one! I have tried many calendars (as I am one of those old-fashioned people who still uses a paper calendar) and I love how this calendar has both a weekly and a monthly calendar section.
"Unique item never leaves my side"
(Springfield, VA) on August 02, 2012
I've used a momagenda for the past two years and love it. Before that I spent three times as much money at franklin covey getting custom calendar inserts and leather cleaner for my binder. Needless to say I won't go back to FC. My first momagenda was zebra striped and so much fun, easy to organize and kept my busy life more structured. Looking at some of the reviews below. I do wish that the week started on Sunday instead of Monday, that does confuse me when I glance at it. Corresponding to the school year 12 month calendar would be a great idea and something to hold a pen and maybe an iside pocket would also be great! some elastic to keep shut would also be an added plus. I am looking at buying the bigger office agenda this year to hold regular sized sheets but a little bummed with the color choices, was hoping for some fancy animal prints! :)
(Dallas, GA) on October 25, 2012
I've had this planner or the MyAgenda for three years. You'll not find a better value, style or layout! Perfect for our day to day hectic life. I've flip flopped back and for between the desktop and the mini. Love both!
"Simply the BEST!!"
(Ontario, Canada) on October 12, 2012
I have tried many planners in the past, but this one is by far the best one out there for staying organized. I love the larger 7" x 9" size... it offers so much more room for writing down tasks and other details. Having the four spaces at the bottom for children or other items of importance is nice, too. Since I only have two children I use the other two spaces for planning lunches and keeping track of exercises I've completed daily. I also like the gift record section (perfect for writing thank you cards) and the entertaining resources section (wish I had that when I got married!!). All in all, it's a great planner and I know that once the planner is done I will be ordering another one for sure!! Thanks momAgenda!
"Amazing and practical"
(Montreal, QC) on November 19, 2012
I spotted this agenda at the bookstore last year and thought it was pricey. After some thought and not being able to find anything similar, I finally decided to buy the agenda in the soft-gold cover. I love the fact that there is a column for practically each member of the family (I've caught my husband using a column for himself when he can't reach his own agenda). I get a lot of compliment on it. Everything was well thought through in this book. I do have to admit that the only downside is its weight, especially when you have too many things to carry around for the kids, but besides that it is great! I'm looking forward to my next agenda, but in which color?!

"GREAT as a Medical Diary for my son w CF!!!"
(Lodi, CA) on December 30, 2012
I looked ALL over for a place to write my 4 year old son's symptoms, med changes, complications, due to his Cystic Fibrosis! This is amazingly perfect! I can look back and tell the doctors when he last had antibiotics, etc. AND I have been WAY better able to manage his health with this planner! (I only have one child so under kids I write Lungs, GI, meds, etc.) Thankyou!!!!

I haven't tryed this yet but I will. Afriend of mine loves hers and I saw a give away and I figured if I won one that would be nice, but I will be getting one win or not!
(Los Angeles) on January 24, 2013
I Love this organizer. I had another with a similar style but it had no pre printed lines so it looked a bit messy at times not any more. I love that there is no wire holding it together much better to write in ... It's supper efficient I don't go anywhere with out it ... Worth the price
"Best planner EVER!"
(Wisconsin) on December 24, 2012
I am on my sixth myAgenda and love this planner so much that I don't even bother looking anywhere else. The weekly layout is so convenient to use and really gives me a perspective of what my day entails. I, too, use one of the kids spaces for my husband and love the fact that any conflicts in scheduling are resolved ASAP. My favorite colors are the bright pink and aqua. I am looking forward to seeing Violet...the color looks spectacular. I perfer the myAgenda over the momsAgenda only because I like the all cream pages verses the color coded pages. Thank you for simplifying my life!
"Love my MomAgenda, could use a few updates though"
(Chicago, IL) on January 02, 2013
If organization if your thing...THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I expecially love the hard cover that always keeps my pages looking great. I have been using MomAgenda for the last 2 years and cant believe I never used it before. (Would have been great to use for college (Hint: great gift for a college student that has many things going on - study sessions, exams, club meetings etc.). Some suggestions for the Desktop MomAgenda would be to 1.)add tab indicators to be able to quickly go to the "resource" page, 2)should include a spot for a pen/pencil 3)pockets should be included, not additional 4.) an elastic band to quickly open the agenda to the current week for quick and easy access
"My sister saved me with this agenda...."
(Chicago) on January 09, 2013
My first agenda was a gift from my sister when my agenda was discontinued... This will be my 5th year using this great momAdgenda Desktop. It has been very helpful in keeping my family organized. I love pulling it out at meetings to take notes or record special date information. It is so much nicer to pull out my lovely agenda then to type in notes on my iPhone or tablet. I find it annoying when people are fixed on their electronics at a meeting - Wonder if you can't get service? How will you possibly know whats on your agenda? Call me "old fashioned", but I think it's a great system. The agenda books look lovely in a bookshelf, plus it keeps them handy for reference. Thank you!
"THE Best Planner for a College Student!"
(Central Texas) on February 02, 2013
I was tired of having two spiral-bound WalMart planners that I paid $10 for break on me after only one semester so I figured I needed a bound agenda, and after looking up various other planners online thought that the MomAgenda would offer me exactly what I needed (even though I'm not a mom). The "Kids" sections in my agenda is used to detail each of my classes including what needs to be read, and when I have tests or assignments due. I use the top portion of the weekly page to write down my work and school schedule, any appointments I may have, and any important events (like Birthdays). I very rarely use the Monthly view, but I'm sure I will as I "map-out" my semester with all of the due dates. Overall, I am VERY pleased and will continue to purchase a MomAgenda each year and the price is justified, even for this college student! Well worth it in my opinion.
(Dallas) on April 10, 2013
It's the only way I can keep my over committed family organized. I can't live without it!!
(Dallas) on April 10, 2013
This is more than just an agenda to me. I use it almost like a diary, taking the example from my grandfather, who'd write tidbits of important events, houseguests, big dinners, repairs on the house, family vacations, etc. in his small calendar every year. I love to look back on agendas (diaries) past and see what I was doing five years ago on such & such day. The ample space and bright colors of the momAgenda bring a smile to my face and I can't imagine using another type of agenda in my life!
"love this planner"
(Tn) on April 12, 2013
I love this planner. I have tried many different planners and usually switch brands each time but this time I will be sticking with my momagenda.
(Chicago) on April 30, 2013
The momAgenda not only keeps me functioning smoothly, it's become "The Book" for our kids, as well. It's routine for them to ask (sometimes frantically), about their schedules. All I need to say is, "Check The Book!". Love it.
"Awesome for Caregivers too!"
(Chicago) on May 03, 2013
Several years ago, my cousin was diagnosed with acute leukemia and spent the majority of the next 4 months in hospital and treatment centers. At the time, her children were 2 & 5 years old. I didn't have any children at the time but the momAgenda was a crucial tool in our lives. I used it to keep track of caregivers for my cousin, caregivers for the kids and all of the many appointments and treatments. Thank God, my cousin recovered and all is well. The momAgenda truly helped my family through a really tough time and made sure that we never missed an appointment, a drop-off or a pick-up.
(Connecticut) on April 21, 2013
This planner has helped me stay organized so much! I am able to keep track of when bills, rent, and student loans are due and I wouldn't be able to keep everything straight without it! It has helped me also keep track of any plans that I make with friends after work and on the weekends that I would otherwise forget about with my hectic schedule.
"Love it but please update and improve it!"
(New Jersey) on June 27, 2012
I have been using MomAgenda for the last 5 years. It is great and I love that I can always look back at the books for information. After many years though, I would think that some improvements should have been made. ie. 1)pockets should be included, not additional 2)should include a spot for a pen/pencil 3)an elastic band in addition to the ribbons would be good to keep your place.
"Mom agenda Large"
(Denver) on June 28, 2012
Not only do I love the way this organizer is set up, I love it that I can (and do ) use it as a journal as well. It captures memories and thoughts in each year, not to mention favorite restaurants, movies and vacations. It allows me to keep all of these, including work schedule and appointments in one location and I can find important information by the year. Not to mention, it's beautiful! Love it!

(Malibu) on July 10, 2012
This is my 7th year of the MomAgenda organizer. 5 kids, soccer, scouts, baseball & working full time...This is a must for today's active family. I love the ribbon on the back page where I can move my address book in and I hook our school's directory on it. I did love the croc embossed print and hope it returns again.
(Virgina) on July 14, 2012
I am getting ready to order my 5th Mom Agenda. I won't even look anywhere else for a planner, I love this product. I have, like other reviewers, been wishing for pockets that are included, a pen loop and less planning pages in the back of the book. I personally love the week starting on Monday, as it seems that Monday is when my week feels like it is starting anyways. I am disappointed to see the croc skin cover in colors in missing this year. I have liked that in the past, it made the cover more water repellant.
"Perfect companion to smart phone"
(SF Bay Area) on July 15, 2012
We all are attached to our smart phones. But I cannot make it with electronics alone. I need a paper back up for my lists! The MomAgenda is perfect for keeping track of all the 'to-do's in my life. I no longer have little bits of paper floating around my desk with phone numbers or appointment reminders. They all go in one place and they stay there! But what happened to the colors? All warm colors this year? And the animal prints are a bit too Kardashian for me. Can we look to Kate Spade or Tori Burch for inspiration? That would seem to be your market.
(Washington, DC) on July 16, 2012
I purchased this agenda during one of the half off sales around Christmas 2011. I instantly fell in love and ended up purchasing another for my cousin. This agenda is perfect for a busy military family of 4! I will definitely be purchasing another one for 2013!
(Northern KY) on January 17, 2013
I LOVE my momAgenda! It helps me keep straight my schedule, my three boys activities and my husband's crazy travel schedule! I am getting ready to order my 2012-2013 version and I have been going crazy without it these past couple weeks!
(Edmonton Alberta) on February 05, 2013
Love this agenda book!! Not only does it work for work I also use it for home where I am Mom Grandma and foster parent. The sad part is that I can no longer find it here in Edmonton. Chapters and I indigo do not carry them any more. I love that it starts in September since I work full time in Kindergarten. The weekly layout leaves lots of room for both work and home items as well as the other kids, hubby too. A notice for repeat customers would be wonderful when the 2013-2014 agendas are available. Emails to us would save valuable time during the back to school frenzy!
"Best Planner on the market!"
(Idaho) on February 05, 2013
I ordered a Momagenda Planner three years ago, and loved it everytime I used it. I still have all the notes and important dates from that year beacuse of the wonderful binding. I have succumbed several times since then to less expensive options, but I am coming back to Mom Agenda for my planning needs. The paper is lovely to write on, and it makes the tedious planning of menus, school activities, shopping lists and Things to Buy feel like it is important- which it is! I re-structured a few of the pages to fit our specific activities, and found it to be a valuable tool for a mom of lots of busy children. I also have a chronic problem with losing a small, paperback planner in the shuffle. Not any more! The vibrant colors are easy to spot, and I put it where I can find it at a moments notice, as it gets used multiple times a day. Thank you for designing a great planner!
"Absolutely the best planner EVER"
(Dallas, TX) on February 13, 2013
In this age of electronic reminders, I remain a paper girl. I have bought and tried just about every planner available and this is by far the best planner I've ever used. I don't have any children, but I do have a disabled mother that I take care of, and this planner affords me all the space and organization that I need to get that done. Do not waste your money on other planners. Spending the little extra on this one will be a very rewarding investment.

"Great planner for even a high school student!"
(Tulsa, OK) on July 26, 2012
I am a high school student who uses this agenda. It is extremely helpful in planning all my activities. This planner could really work for anyone!
(Texas) on July 27, 2012
I love this momagenda. Have been using for 3 years. Fixing to purchase my fourth it is pricey but I still continue. The extra pages I use for budgeting.
"Love it! However, it would be nice if..."
(Wisconsin) on October 15, 2012
I am just finishing up my 1st year with my momAgenda and I love it. I have been looking for an agenda that will fit my crazy life for years and this one is almost perfect. I love the animal print and I have plenty of space to keep track of all of my family (I include my hubby in the kids section.) I have to agree with many other reviewers that I wish it was in a 12 month format, Jan.-Dec. or Aug.-Jul. I hate the waste of 6 months of planning pages. I also agree the price is a little steep. I waited until Dec. to purchase mine at the discounted price. If you went to a 12 month format you could extend your savings to your customers. I will probably splurge again this year and will use some of the tips suggested by other reviewers to make mine nearly perfect.
"Favorite of all time"
(Virginia) on November 02, 2012
I have used many day planners and this is by far my favorite! There are sections for my husband and kids' activities so I can easily keep track of everyone. I love that it has a dinner section at the bottom of each day for easy meal planning. I purchased the large pockets and that added extra storage for important papers and coupons. I do no have any complaints at all!
"Finishing up first year of use...."
(North Carolina) on May 23, 2012
I am finishing my first year of using the MyAgenda. The size has been great with plenty of room to write. I added monthly tabs to help locate the months. I would love to see monthly tabs added. The bookmarks are okay but don’t provide the same quick access. My bookmark came unglued and kept falling out. I was able to re-glue it. I love the personalization and cover options. I would love to see an option of monthly calendars before the weekly pages instead of in the front. Overall it has been a great product and has worked to organize home, work and play.
"Helpful, but limited"
(New York - Brooklyn) on May 31, 2012
I love the idea of MomAgenda. I love the essentials at the end. I love the color options and the personalization. I adore the ribbons. However, instead of listing obscure categories for important numbers, a line to write our own would be better. I live in New York City and I don't own my own house therefore, I had to white out the "contractors" on the line to write my own. A section to list the last appointment for the multitude of doctors would be awesome. I'd also like a place to list medications, dates prescribed, how many refills given and cost. A receipt pocket would be awesome. I love the spaces to write the kids' schedules, but my schedule is way more packed than the little spaces allow. I would have preferred a bit more room. The quotes are nice, but they take up space I would have liked to use for other things. For the price of the agenda I would have expected not to have to spend another $9 for a pocket to hold documents.
"Years of momAgenda"
(Chicago metro area) on July 29, 2012
I've used momAgenda since the beginning. Yes, pricey, use the extra months to wait for the sale. I always use the extra months to sort the following school year's events the May before. Many of the suggested changes have been tried. I'd like the week to start in the typical way, with Sunday, as in the original product. Inevitably, 1 or 2 Sunday events per year are missed because of the way we've all learned to read calendars. If my son or husband refer to it, we'll be a day off until I catch it. At one point the months were intermingled with the weeks-total debacle so the layout went back to months in front. Try a double-sided fun magnet over the top of the month page so super quick to open for glance at scheduling, use ribbons for detailed weeks. Incidentally, this is when the change to Monday start was made - that change persisted. A pen holder would be nice - maybe a 3/4" coordinating elastic with a quick reverse loop that sits along the page edges between the covers.
"Enjoyed, but going to try the Home Office Edition"
(Lexington, KY) on June 26, 2012
I have owned 2 momAgenda planners and have loved how organized they have kept me. I noticed this past year, though, that I was having trouble keeping up wtih my momAgenda. It doesn't sit open as flat as I would like on my desk so I miss writing appointments down and looking at it daily to see what is coming up. Though bigger, I am hoping the Home Office edition will be a better fit for me.
(Knoxville, TN) on February 15, 2013
IMPROVEMENTS: 1. an option for 12 month calendar Aug-Aug, for the school year 2. an option for a 12 month calendar Jan-Dec 3. A pen loop 4. pockets are included, not additional, with the high price it should at least come with some pockets 5. an option for the momAgenda to have cream colored pages. 6. more blank notes, and less planning(party planner, vacation planner, etc), not everyone uses that 7. month tabs in the desktop 8. an option for it to begin on either monday(for the college/high school students), or sunday(for the traditional user) 9. halfcut the price 10. make the pads and sticky notes cost less, they are very expensive 11. have enough inventory so that the good ones(leopard, zebra, blue, pink, violet, giraffe) dont go out of stock 12. a magnet clasp or a elastic band to keep it shut 13. tab indicators for resources 14. elastic band in addition to the ribbons to quickly access that week 15. to do list pad included 16. remove the AM, NOON, and PM notes on the weekly view.
(New Jersey) on July 19, 2012
This past year was the first time I used momAgenda, and I loved that I was able to keep track of the whole family's schedules and appointments at a single glance. I had the giraffe print and it was fun, not boring like most other planners on the market. And why shouldn't it be a fun product to use? The website references in the front and the Essentials in the back came in handy as well. The only thing that would make this better is a place to keep a pen/pencil.
"Excited each year to get my next one!"
(Indianapolis, Indiana) on July 23, 2012
I love this planner and get so excited to order my new one each year! I teach part time and am a mother of 3. I love the format, size, double ribbon, and space for extra notes. I did try to order a different momagenda once, but ended up returning to come back to this tried and true! My only complaints have been that the removable address book is included each year ....so sort of defeats teh purpose of having it removable. I wish they would sell it separately as a one time purchase. I would also LOVE if the pockets would be included, because I do buy them extra each year! Overall, though, you will not be disappointed!

This will be my third momagenda. Like everything about it! Personalization for me would be (as mentioned before) an August to August format WITH blank pages included before or after (I end up taping my children's artwork in the overlapping months). Pockets included and the address book sold separately. It's such a waste to have multiples. Pen loop would be useful but even better would be something to keep it closed with (band or snap closure). I love the format of the days/weeks and the only thing I'd add is something for us single moms - a line to keep track of babysitters/how much I paid them. Working full time (shift work), going to school full time and being mom means that I can use all the space I can get....the desktop edition does the trick!
"a bit pricey, but worth it."
(New York) on January 10, 2013
I received my mini planner as a gift. After googling the site, I would not have ordered it myself due to the price. BUT, that would have been a lapse of judgment on my part. This planner had changed my life! 4 stars for the hefty price tag.
"LOVE it ....except for...."
(Indiana) on October 05, 2012
I have used this planner for 6 years now. It is by far the best for my family. BUT, I do NOT get the wasted 6 months! Just give me a 12 month calendar. It makes no sense to me whatsoever. I feel like I am paying for something that I cannot use. I also hate having to throw out the Mom Essentials booklet each time I get a new planner. I just put the original one with all my info in it's place. It would be better to have that as an option to purchase for first time buyers. I also wish there was one more line for Dinner, but that's a little nit picky on my part. :-) Wish there were better color choices this year too. Having said all that, I will continue to buy this because I love the format....and usually the cover.
"used for years"
(alabama) on August 16, 2012
i love my momagenda...i've used it for years. my only complaint is that is does not coincide with a school year calendar august-july. the additional months seem to be a waste, as as you go from one momagenda to the next your extra months overlap. PLEASE make a 12 month calendar that coincides with a school year.
"Like, would Love with a few changes"
(Central Virginia) on October 10, 2012
I am about to order my fifth Momagenda. I use the front monthly calendar to schedule my Pampered Chef shows and the back weekly section for my family appointments. Family appointments come first and then I can mark off a date on the monthly calendar to show it's not available if I have a family function on that date. Works beautifully for me. 1. When I purchased my first one, the week started with Sunday and it would be so helpful if it still did. 2. I can't remember the last time I wrote down anyone's phone number or address; they go into my phone so I haven't used the address pages for years. I can, of course, remove them myself. Rather than including those, why not add pockets to the inside front and back covers?
(Ohio) on October 11, 2012
Love the content and how it is set up! I have been much more organized since using this planner. I just wish it was a 12-13 month planner. I feel like so many pages are wasted. It would also be great to have a pen holder of some sort.

(Tampa) on August 14, 2012
I have 4 children in 3 schools. I am so thankful to have found the Mom Agenda. It has been a great help. I am not very good with technology and juslt love being able to write things down. There is a place for everything. I even keep track of meals . Wish it had a place for a pen and pockets:) Thank you!
"Must have organizer"
(New York) on September 11, 2012
This keeps me and the family organized and on track. I love the stylish colors and will be ordering my next book very soon.
(Cleveland, OH) on October 20, 2011
I LOVE my mom agenda!! This is my 6th one and I couldnt live without it. Then only thing I will say is that I was disappointed in the color selection this year. Already having had the pink and blue, I wanted something different and I am not an animal print kinda girl. I ordered the gold, and unfortunately am really disappointed for the first time ever. Because of the color I see every time it rubs on something and it is only 3 months old and all marked up. I still couldn't live without it, but hopefully there will be more fun colors back next year (chocolate brown or that great green from a few years ago), and that there won't be the same problem with the cover getting all maked up like on the gold.
(Houston, Tx) on June 07, 2012
I'm using the giraffe momAgenda desktop. Before, I used the myAgenda. Both are well made. I like having a written record of my year. The desktop size fits in most of my handbags and is large enough to be able to write legibly. After using both, here are my suggestions to make the MOMagenda perfect: Keep each week layout as is, beginning on Monday. Remove the AM, NOON, and PM notes on the weekly pages. Ditch the pastels and make all the pages a nice, elegant cream like the MyAgenda. Keep the ribbon placeholders, the MomEssentials packet, the list of useful websites, and the vacation, party, and other planning pages. Include more blank pages instead of extra months. Make it a twelve month calendar. Remove the month at a glance pages in the beginning. Include the pockets that are currently available separately. Add an elastic pen loop, monthly tabs like the Home Office Edition, and an elastic that wraps around the top and bottom to keep it closed and prevent papers from falling out.

Love this and have been using the desktop for years. However, now that I have school-age children I would rather have the desktop in a 12 month school year format. Aug-aug. Every year I waste 6 months of the calendar...lots of wasted paper!!
"I gave it a try"
(Portland) on June 18, 2012
This was my introduction to MomAgenda products. Well made and plenty of ways to keep track of your schedule. I wish the binding was looser so that it could be laid flat for writing - the book wants to close if you don't keep your hand on it. the ribbons are nice for marking your page.
"Great to have everything in one place!"
(Boston) on January 02, 2012
I love the desktop MomAgenda, but have found there were many pages which went unused last year. I didn't use the vacation or party pages, and felt like I was carrying around extra weight with unused pages, however I tried to use those pages for notes when I was at off-site at meetings, and also for school meetings with the kids. My dilemma is the MomAgenda is too "mom", and the "MyAgenda" isn't quite enough. If the "MyAgenda" had the pullout "essentials" section it would be perfect. I don't want to have to write out all the addresses, doctors numbers, birthdates, each year over and over. The "essentials" pullout out pamphlet is so perfect. I even pull it out to bring on vacations! As for the size, honestly the larger size keeps me from misplacing it! This desktop really does the job and though it's a bit pricey, it's more reliable than any electronic planner (have lost much info on those too!) and doesn't fall apart by the end of the year because its so well made.
"where there's a will... there's a way...."
(Ashburn) on January 02, 2012
Yes....not having a pen loop was a disappointment, but.... I can stick my vera bradley pen inside the wire loop instead. Also I cut a ribbon, about 16 inches long, tied it the top of the wire and voila! ribbon book marks!
"great but I skip years"
(Boston) on April 24, 2012
I love the momagenda planner but do not like the waste of paper in having 17 month calendars that start every 12 months. For me, this means I don't use a new one until the old one is done- so five months of paper get wasted. What I now do is buy every other year and then staple in loose weekly planner sheets for those seven months. Call me crazy, but that feels better to me. I prefer the old model of month at a glance at the start of each month versus all together at the start, I end up not using them at all, though I do like the option. I agree with a few other comments- it could use a pen holder and a strap- the strap would reduce the need for a pocket. All in all, it's worth it. The colorful colors make it easy to spot and with buying every other year, it's not as expensive in the end.
"Like it but...."
(north carolina) on August 09, 2011
I like the concept...;pricey and cannot believe there isnt a spot to put a pen or section for business cards....they do offer one that has those 2 things...but it $75 thats crazy! I like that this has the ribbons to seperate the pages.good color choices
(Chicago) on August 22, 2011
I first got a Mom Agenda 5 years ago and have loved it since then. It is pricey, but worth it. This year, though, I have to switch because of the change in the color choices. I have always gotten the brown, which I loved. I would be willing to purchase another color, but don't like flashy or bright. There isn't a subtle color choice in the group. Please add at least one more neutral option for next year!
"Tweaked it to make it perfect!"
(Southern California) on April 02, 2012
I will be ordering my third momagenda tomorrow. To tweak it for me I do the following: 1) add a pen loop to the back cover which I buy at Staples and when I close my planner it is tucked inside along the pages protected by the covers. 2) add post-it monthly tabs which I get at Staples ( love my ribbons but I plan ahead monthly for sports, etc and need to quickly flip ahead). 3) bought the Momagenda large pockets which I put on front and back inside covers. So worth it, holds business cards, receipts, etc. And 4) love my Frixion erasable pens. I don't do pencils and these are the most amazing pens, ever. Completely erase easily and write beautifully on the thick pages. The only cons for me: I do wish it ran August-August along with the school year as I hate wasting the four months I don't use the extra planning vacation, books, etc pages. Would rather have blank pages or less pages. Overall, I LOVE MomAgenda and cannot imagine my life without it daily. Thank you, MomAgenda!

Love this concept. Favourite colour would have to be violet!
"Wish There Were More Spiral Options"
(NY) on October 04, 2012
I ordered a MomAgenda 2 years ago and although I LOVED the fact that it could help me keep track of my whole family's activities, the fact that it was not spiral-bound made it less user-friendly and I ended up not using it. I sit with my planner at my desk, inputting appointments, taking notes, etc, and to have it not lay completely flat makes it harder to keep open and more difficult to write into. I considered ordering the spiral refills but they seem like an afterthought to you design-wise. If you would give them the same attention to cover detail and options (animal prints and personalization), I'd be ordering this every single year. The Home Office option is a bit larger than I'd prefer to lug around and again, the inability to make it as funky/pretty as I'd like is disappointing. I really hope you will look into expanding the line of spiral-bound products. Here's what I would love to see and what I bet would be a winner: a 7 x9 spiral bound momAgenda, with more cover options.
"I'm not a mom, but I like the agenda"
(Toronto) on November 12, 2012
For an agenda going for that cost, I agree with most commenters that it should include at least a pocket or pen holder. Although the variations between the momAgenda and myAgenda are not drastic. Why do the momAgenda and myAgendas have different texture for the covers? Why does the momAgenda have coloured sheets inside? Why are there more colours offered for the momAgenda? I really like the design and everything else about this agenda except for the fact that it says mom on it. Why are the designs for the momAgenda are not offered for the myAgenda. How difficult is it to offer this customization when you offer engraving?
"Received wrong cover...bummer it's personalized!"
(Texas) on February 16, 2012
I personalized this Mom Agenda during the ordering process. Then realized I wanted to change something. You are unable to do that once the item is in your bag. I had to add a new item to the shopping bag to do so. I recall both items being the turquoise cover, especially since the cover is shown in the shopping bag. I removed the one I didn't want and placed my order. To my surprise the default zebra pattern Mom Agenda showed up today. It's personalized so I can't return it. So bummed!!! I really wanted a turquoise cover to match my purse. Product looks to be well made with lots of pages. I am going to use the agenda slightly different than intended, since I keep an electronic family calendar synced with my Outlook on my Windows phone.
"Good but has room for improvements"
(Rogers, AR) on March 27, 2012
I was so excited to get my first EVER momagenda. It's great. I really do love it. It's going to help me plan our schedules with more ease. I do like that the pages are a bit thicker. I write with Sharpie Pens and it doesn't soak through the page. There are a few things that could make this even better: 1. I got this for half price because it's far into the year and wanted to try it out before I commit to the full price. The price is steep. I'm not sure if I would buy it at the full price. 2. It could use a place to hold a pen/pencil. 3. Pockets. 4. A strap to keep the organizer closed. I have documents in mine and they keep slipping out. The personalization is a nice touch but I would rather the funds go to more important items such as those named above. Overall, I would have a hard time recommending this to any of my mom friends at this price point.
"Unfortunately not keeping up with economic changes"
(New England) on July 31, 2012
I've loved (and even gifted) the momAgenda desktop for years. Last year I really debated because of the price & this year, the price just doesn't fit into my new budget. I would love to see some of the less useful pages & the extra six months removed~ better for the environment & my budget. If the price comes down, I would buy again. Until then, I'm sure I'll find something in a more suitable price range.
"Overpriced, no pockets"
(Mdwst) on January 04, 2012
Way overpriced, no pockets to store coupons, appointment cards, business cards, letters, etc...no pen loop... definitely needs some fine tuning & a huge price cut
