I've tried almost every planner. These are ideal for a mom with a busy schedule and small handwriting. The larger size is a must for those with larger handwriting but it would fit as easily in a purse due to its width. That said the design is lovely thanks to the fact that these are one of the few planners designed by a graphic designer. It's not the most convenient planner I've used and definitely doesn't work for business (no real notes pages) but it's great for a busy mom and again, great looking and the most portable of all the planners I've purchased.
