momAgenda: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The momAgenda Desktop Planner will be a great way to take back control of my hectic schedule, organize my life and begin to reduce the stress of trying to remember everything on my own.

One momAgenda 2009-2010 Desktop Planner in Fuschia, one crazy life, and one disorganized Mom of two beautiful (and busy) daughters.  About momAgenda:

momagenda2

As with many great inventions, the momAgenda was created to simplify the life of its founder – and caught on like wildfire. Nina Restieri, a former successful ad executive, and businesswoman at the helm of a family business, was attempting to organize her chaotic schedule (and those of her family of four young children).  One year of extensive research later, momAgenda was born. The first run of products sold out within three days to 120 stores. At that moment, Nina knew she had struck a chord with women all over the country who had the same desire to bring some order to their hectic lives. Since its inception in 2005, momAgenda has grown annually to include a diversified range of products that help organize the lives of mothers and others, including day planners (myAgenda, mom Agenda and Personal Portfolio) home organizers (Kitchen Folio, School Years, Wall Calendar) and helpful pads (Weekly Menu/Grocery Pad, Permission Slip, Honey Do List and Babysitter Info). The collection is sold at leading national retailers and regional boutiques throughout the US.”

results Alarm sounds at 6:10am.  Wake up, get Aubrie dressed and fed, hubby leaves to take Aubrie to school.  Wake up Lily, help her get dressed and fed, dress self, bring Lily to school, head to work.  Work for 8 hours, pick up Aubrie from daycare, head home.  Help fix dinner, take Lily to cheer lesson, drive home, eat, bathe Lily, spend time with Lily and Aubrie, put girls to bed.  Shower, iron clothes, fix lunches, spend time with hubby, blog.

Crazy life, but I love it!  On top of the day’s tasks, I also got a note home from daycare instructing us to bring a pumpkin to school on Friday, a note from Lily’s school that Hilarious Hat Day will be Tuesday and to remember to bring a bag of Halloween candy no later than Friday.  Grandparent’s Day is Friday followed by a family outing to our local Boo at the Zoo.  How on Earth am I going to keep this all straight!?!?

Enter momAgenda!  When I first received the desktop planner, I was in love with the pink color (it’s no secret that I like PINK), but after flipping through the pages, I realized that my love for the new planner went deeper than the cosmetic.  This calendar has monthly planner pages grouped together in the front for easy access followed by daily planning pages with spaces to organize you AND your family.  There are entire sections to write notes about Lily’s activities or supplies needed at Aubrie’s school…LOVE IT!  The planner also includes an address book, kids’ medical forms, birthday calendar, and a place to list your favorite websites.

The momAgenda Desktop planner definitely made me feel more in control of my schedule and helped me by laying out everything I needed to remember in one convenient (and stylish!) place.

summary

I absolutely love the momAgenda Desktop planner!  This 17 month calendar allows me to organize my schedule as well as the schedule of each family member in one convenient place.  I found the monthly pages to be a great way to visualize your entire month at a glance, while the daily pages provide enough room for details of daily activities.  The momAgenda 2009-2010 planner comes in several colors, but for the month of October, momAgenda will donate 20% of the sales for the Desktop planner in fuschia to the Breast Cancer Alliance.  Even better?  The 2009-2010 calendars are 25% off right now and orders over $75 dollars are shipped FREE!

Do you need to get organized?  momAgenda has generously donated one Desktop planner to one lucky Not-So-Blog reader!
