I am a planner girl. I love them. From the simple pocket calendars to the awesomeness of The Happy Planner. I always have a couple of planners for each year. Ok, I have seven for 2018.
And digital planners, oh goodness. I have tried them all. I love to poke around and set them up just to see what their planning capabilities are. I have been eyeballing the Homeschool Planet
online homeschool planner from the Homeschool Buyers Co-op for a while now but had been hesitant to spend the money because I already have access to several (yes, several – I did mention that I love planners!)
other online homeschool planners that I am not using. Needless to say, when the opportunity arose for this review I jumped on it and was so excited when I was chosen to be included!

I will just tell you right up front – there is a GOOD reason for the excitement, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I have a crazy
obsession love of planners.
First, let’s get the business end of this review out of the way. Homeschool Planet
is a subscription-based online lesson planner by Homeschool Buyers Co-op. It’s an online planner so that you will need a computer and internet access for set up. Homeschool Planet cost $69.95 for a 1-year subscription or $7.95 a month.
Why is Homeschool Planet the best online homeschool planner?
The functionality and features of this online planner are AWESOME! Other online planners, I have tried were very clunky and a bit cumbersome to learn. Homeschool Planet is super easy to use! It is just point and click to add everything from family members to resources to assignments. And there are tutorials in the Help section to show you how to get everything set up.
First, add your family members…
Then add your subjects…
Adding resources is easy-peasy with the ISBN search tool for books.
It is as simple as it looks!
Some of my favorite features of Homeschool Planet
The super simple way to set up your school year calendar. Just click on the days that you want to add or remove from your school year.
You can create printable assignment lists and other reports such as class hours, class notes, and grade reports for each student.
And my most, absolute favorite feature is the ability to create an official transcript for each student! This is AH_MAZING!!!
Inputting lesson plans is just as easy too! Especially with the Homeschool Planet Lesson Plan Marketplace
. If you are using a curriculum, such as The Mystery of History, North Star Geography, All About Spelling, and others you can just buy the lesson plans from the Lesson Plan Marketplace. When you sign into Homeschool Planet, it will automatically detect that you purchased those lesson plans and then ask you if you want to apply them to your calendar. BAM! It doesn’t get much easier than that to lesson plan!!
