I just use a spiral notebook.
I label the week at the top and then list what I plan to accomplish. When we do those things I check them off, and I write unplanned but "Educational" things in at the bottom.
Anything that was planned but we don't get to I carry over to the next week.
I try to do a little history, math, science and language (reading/writing) each week
I like the way Sonlight's planner look, but we don't use Sonlight. So, I made my own in a spreadsheet. That way if I plan I can plug stuff in under the appropriate subject. If not I can plug stuff in while we are going about our week. If it's just for one child I put their intial next to it. Like under readers...Magic School Bus (G).
When I'm bored I go back and type it up. It get's three whole punched and put in my mommy book.
My Mommy book is a binder with and index. You can buy the index with 30 tabs at Office supply stores. I write in the front with a pencil what I put under each number.
I guess when it starts to get full then I'll back a binder just to put the "old" planner sheets in. You know..just in case =) It works really well for me because I'm not a naturally organized person and tend to stick to lists that always get lost. I just keep the page out during the day on our living room coffee table. In our house that's where most of the "learning" takes place.
