Which diary is best for me?
We are often asked what is the the difference between our diaries: MINI, MUMs, BIG, BLOX - so we will try and shed some light on the matter.....
MINI, MUM's, BIG or BLOX ........
In a nutshell the MUM's MINI Diary / MUM's MINI School Year Diary has 3 columns and is the smallest diary, MUM's Diary (the Original) / MUM's School Year Diary has 4 columns and is the size of a penguin paperpack, the BIG Family Diary / The BIG Family School Year Diary has 5 columns and is a desk diary. The BLOX Diary / The BLOX Academic Diary also has 3 columns but at A5 is bigger than the MINI and our original MUM's Diary and the BLOX Academic Planner is a desk diary, the same size as the BIG Family School Year Diary but with 4 columns.
In terms of calendars and planners, MUM's Weekly Calendar / MUM's Weekly School Year Calendar has 6 columns and is a weekly format and MUM's Weekly Planner is undated, again with 6 columns.
What's the difference?
MUM's MINI Diary/ MUM's MINI School Year Diary really is mini. It is the smallest in size, has 3 columns and has less pages as doesn't have all the sections for recording the children's contact information, pocket money record, etc. MUM's MINI Diary does not have an internal pocket, an elastic pen loop or an elastic closure band.
MUM's Diary / MUM's School Year Diary is our original diary. It is approximately the size of a penguin paperback, has 4 columns and lots of pages to record information for all the family.
The BIG Family Diary / The BIG Family School Year Diary has 5 columns and the same sections as MUM's Diary with an additional Children's Contact Information. This really is a desk diary.
The BLOX Diary / The BLOX Academic Diary by BLOX Stationery are A5 with 3 columns, and are designed for general use as have no reference to kids or families and are suitable for both men and women, particularly students and teachers.
The BLOX Academic Planner by BLOX Stationery is a large desk diary with 4 columns, and again designed for general/work use as has no reference to kids or families and is suitable for both men and women, particularly students and teachers.
MUM's Weekly Calendar / MUM's Weekly School Year Calendar has a weekly view, is A4, with 6 columns and hangs on the wall for all the family to update.
Calendar Year or School Year?
That's an easy one - do you have children at school? If so the School Year Diary, dated from August to August is great as you can set it up before the first of September to coincide with new classes/schools and there is no changing over come January 1st!
The Calendar Year range is dated January to December for those who prefer it that way!
