I have always loved being organized and planning, but all of that really kicked into high gear after the birth of our fourth child in 2013.
Between homeschooling my 3 older children, a newborn and running a home, life was busy. I had to be intentional with my time to keep things from being missed or falling through the cracks, and I needed a tool that helped me organize my life.
I looked for a tool in Canada that would fit my busy, family life. It needed to be beautiful, functional and affordable.
Unfortunately, I could not find one that fit, so I decided to create one. That was ambitious considering I only knew how to google search and email.
After a year of creating the planner pages, I decided to print a few test copies and give them to friends to try.
They loved the Home Life Planner!!
The Home Life Planner is a tool created to help you plan and organize your entire year.
Family life and homemaking are busy! This planner is designed by the user for the user, with your busy life in mind.
The Home Life Planner has a laminated cover to protect from sticky fingers and unexpected spills. This planner is portable and can be your daily companion.
Traditional calendars (January-December 2018) are included with lots of space to plan your month, set your goals and write down those important tasks.
The planner's layout allows you to see your whole week at a glance, with plenty of space for planning. Each week includes space for meal planning and a daily checklist to help you stay ahead in the everyday homemaking tasks.
Some tasks are just a part of life, such as bills, meals and housework! Tackle these areas with ease, with the "extras" that are included in the Home Life Planner.
Family life is busy, chaotic and beautiful. You will appreciate a planner that is beautiful and functional on every single page.
Eliminate multiple notebooks, calendars, to-do lists and sticky notes that get lost. This planner has it all.
The Home Life Planner is made with a laminated cover to make it last and pages thick enough that your pen won't go through.
I am passionate about helping women succeed in their many roles in life and in the everyday mundane!
The Home Life Planner is for every woman who has a desire to thrive at home and not just go through the motions. Whether you are growing a family, a business or trying to stay on top of homemaking, the Home Life Planner is for you.
That all sounds great, but why the Kickstarter?
What a great question!
After listening to my customer's needs, I knew they were loving the planner, but the high price tag (the Home Life Planner has sold for $54CAD in the past) was making it out of reach for many people.
To be able to bring the cost down, I need to bring the minimum order of planners up, which is why I am here, because I need your help to fund the minimum order and to get the word out about these awesome planners!
During the Kickstarter campaign, I will be offering:
-The Home Life Planner for the lowest price it has ever been.
-More planning tools for home life that are not included in your planner, plus your favourite extras from your planner that you can print off as many as often as needed with some reward tiers.
-Fancy Plum Cheeky Solutions branded pens for writing in your planner included with some of the reward tiers.
-I also have a few things up my sleeve for those that get in on the Kickstarter. They are not public at this point, but I will start to roll them out Spring 2018 and Kickstarter backers will be the first to hear about them.
You may be thinking, "Wow, $18,500 is good chunk of money! How will the funds be spent?"
In a nut shell; printing, shipping, and fees... and did I mention shipping? Shipping in Canada is RIDICULOUS!!
Printing-Printing full colour is costly. Black and white printing is much cheaper, but I designed this to be full colour and beautiful to inspire you to use it daily.
Shipping and handling-Shipping in Canada is expensive...I'm starting to see a theme here for Canada...but with shipping there is also the expense of packaging.
Fees-Kickstarter charges a fee, but only if the goal is met AND the payment processor company also collects a fee.
Why a 21 day Kickstarter?
As this is a dated product I would like to get it out to everyone before the new year and before Christmas, incase you want to give it out as a gift. Between the printing, packaging and shipping, I want to make sure there is plenty of time to get these items to you.

Risks and challenges
I am excited about this project and have spent many years fine tuning my product and working out the kinks.
There have been many obstacles along the way and times where it seemed impossible, but I am determined to see this project succeed. 4 years of working at this project has been fuelled by my passion and the love and support of my hubby, my family and friends.
With any project there are risks and challenges, I plan to be in communication with my backers and keep you updated as we go along.
At this point everything looks like smooth sailing, but there could be issues that delay production time. Printing could take longer then expected or Canada Post could take longer to get things delivered.
I have chosen to run the Kickstarter for 21 days to give us a little extra wiggle room for printing and distribution. My plan is to get the Home Life Planner in your hands by December, so you have them in time for Christmas.
I plan to work hard and recruit family members and willing friends as needed to see you receive your products in excellent condition and on time.
