I am always up for anything that will help me stay organized. The covers are cute. The website was confusing. I wanted to see products and it just kept taking me to other websites. But I am also not the most computer savy person.

Wow.The academic one is a great one for busy moms! So many different kinds on that site. And hubby thought I was over organized. There is so much more to organize!

Thanks for the chance. I find that organization makes life so much less chaotic. I'd rather take the time to plan!

What a great idea! We could really use one of these. I really liked the fridge pad because it was magnetic, and undated. I'd love to win but might have to buy one of these. ;) I do wish that I could have found how much shipping was somewhere. Thanks!

this idea is really boss! i like that each family member has her/his own column, and that it's offered in several sizes. i have a friend i'm going to refer to this site because she has 3 kids' schedules to manage, besides hers and her husband's!

the covers for the portable ones are cool too!

Kira Joy said...

I always hate planners because they look old man-ish...but these are so cute! You have thought of everything, I tried to think of things I would add, but then I looked at the list of features and you included every single one!

Excellent work!

Kira S.

Joanna said...

Wow! I desperately need one of these now that my kids are becoming involved in more things and my brain doesn't function any longer! I love the styles of all of them! Polka-dots are my favorite!

Cuddle Cottage said...

Neat planners. This is one mom who needs all the organizational help she can get . . . I love the magnetic undated fridge grid.

Ginny said...

I like the grids for each family member. I had a wall calender like that, but would prefer one I could carry. These planners look great, I really liked them when I came across the site last year as well. Would love one that is for new school year! Ginny B Michigan

I Do Faces said...

PLEASE pick me hahaha This is just what I need. I carry my planner with me everywhere and I really can't function without it, but it actually ends in August so I NEED a new one!!
I love the cover designs, but I wish there were more choices and also maybe time slots for each day!!

These are neatly put together and practical. I really like the fresh look of the covers and the fonts. If I would just get stuff like this I know it would help me. Since my kids are preschoolers, I don't have all sorts of appointments for them all the time yet, but there are many things to keep straight and I could use these organizers! Jenny D., Colorado

Naomi said...

I love my BusyBody Book but my daughter spilled a vase of roses on it (happy mother's day!) and the cover go mildewy so I could use a new one...

Emily said...

I absolutely love the fridge pad! The planner would be nice too :) The site was organized and easy to navigate. More designs for the covers of the books would be fun. I'd love to get one... I've been feeling a need to be more organized!
Emily R, Utah

Dooneybug said...

I have always wanted to use one of these since I first saw them. They look so chic on the outside and I love the spiral bound so that you can have a flat laying, one sided page in front of you. I'd love to win one but if I don't I might just have to buy one!

What a great idea for organization...just what we need for our busy lifestyles!

Wendy said...

Busy Body Books are just about the most intelligently-designed organizers I've ever seen. The bookmark and pockets are great features, but what really does it for me are the removable shopping lists.

Of course, the hip, fun design is pretty awesome, too. :)

being a homeschool mom of seven and one who is always trying to stay organized, this looks great! so pick me :)

Rach said...

I need it! I love the format and its easy to see just what everyone has scheduled on a particular day. The website was easy to navigate and pretty straight-forward.

Rachael K, UT

Deanne said...

I love the simple and clean look of the grid design. I love having space to list different family member's activities. I especially the space labeled "to doodles", since I do this anyway, but just have lots of loose paper laying around! Great design.

Deanne D.

Katie said...

oh I love the fridge grid pad.

Katie W. KY

The Lindsays said...

I like the idea, but I think it was still missing something that would keep me from double booking things. I like the grid idea to keep track of each of the kids stuff, like homework, etc. But I would still like a schedule section broken down by time so that I wouldn't double book appointments, etc. My favorite is the smaller book so I could take it with me when I'm running around.
Alicia L, UT

Michelle said...

This book is everything I have been looking for in a day planner; thin, calendar, doodle space and cute! Just fantastic! The site was easy to navigate, too.

Angela said...

Those are fantastic! I love the striped one. The site is so clean and easy to navigate and I love that they even give a sample page to show how it works!

THe BusyBody Book would be awesome for PTA's to sell because you can organize a family in it.

Sorry, I didn't follow the rules... so I'm deleting my old comment, and making this one with my name/state:

I really like the site and the organizers! The grid is great, for keeping everyone in the family on-track. And the downloads for calendar pages are great!! Would love to try one of these. Thanks for the chance. Laura C, WA. laurachilton {at} hotmail {dot} com

Amber said...

These are all fabulous! This would really help out with our scheduling. I was trying to do that myself with calendars but had WAY too many calendars going. The Fridge Grid pad is wonderful but I like the notebooks better b/c of portability. And the designs are all right up my ally. So I would be happy with any of them.
What a great idea!!

~Tami said...

I've been wanting one of these, but have been short on cash.

Annie said...

The grid design is something I have needed and been waiting for for so long! These organizers are awesome. They are very functional and still have style. I love the retro designs and think that anyone could use these--young or old.

You've also made some great strides to help families stay organized as well.

Thanks for making a hectic life more organized!

Cindy & Rob said...

Very neat design. I think it's a great idea and very helpful. I would suggest on the website to allow people to click on an image and view it larger. It helps sometimes to view things larger. :) Strange, I know.
Anyway, I would love the stripes calendar. It's a great product and a wonderful idea.
Cindy T, SLC Utah

twatkins said...

Love this planner. The only thing I would change would be to add a few more colors/desings for the covers.

Michele said...

What a great idea! Hey, anything to help me stay organized I'm going to love! I just wish they had more cover designs to choose from, but that's my only negative to say about the product. I think it's a great idea, and I like the one for the fridge, too. I'd love to have a shabby chic light pink, ivory and aqua one!!!

Michele R.

Crystal said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I just finished my first year of teaching and I love having academic calendars. It suits me better than a regular calendar.

JenO said...

Love the wall calender, and I love the designs and colors you've chosen. Altho maybe some solids would be good if you want the business folks to use them, too. (well, men in general for that matter, maybe just offer it in black for the drab folks out there ;)

Emilie said...

I would love to win this for my sister. While I still have a busy schedule, it is nothing compared to hers. She has three kids and another on the way. Two are school age. This would be perfect! Thanks!

Connie said...

My daughter needs some help. She really needs more organization in her life!

chris said...

love the polka dot busy body book but the fridge grid looks great too

Jo said...

Very nice website; easy to navigate. My only question is if the planner also has each moth in addition to the weekly spread; that is always nice.
JoAnne S., IN

Marcia said...

I really like the clean look of their site and the colors give it a nice touch. Plain black and white sites are boring to me. The gray on the outside is a nice calm shade.

I have two busy kids and a busy husband and I can never keep track of things. My desk is filled with Post It notes!

I love the fridge grid. That is handy! It keeps the information right there front and center for all to see since everyone uses the fridge several times a day.

I love the fact that it comes with personal and family calendar. I love the crisp, clean look. And I wish there was one on pink. lol. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
