    Summer Planner – I used to pick these up because they had recipes included, so a nice planner all-the-way around…having to go to the website…is simply …Something else to do.
    Glad I saved them because the new ones are not nearly as useful, mostly just more advertising, arranged nicely, but lacking a full planner ability.
    In the end…just more advertising…on the flip side, I won’t have to pick them up anymore, or find a place to store them.
    Won’t likely revisit this site either, I have tons of recipes, it was the simple …all-in-one-place-arranged nicely, fold it in my purse, carry it around convenience that is now gone. I don’t need more work to do!
