One Bold Blossoms Planner , one Mom’s 24/7 Calendar and one Mom looking to get her family organized before the back to school craziness begins.  About the Orange Circle Studio:

In 2009, a group of friends made it a habit to meet for lunch and coffee at The Circle in Orange County, California. They daydreamed about art, innovation, and unique product design. It wasn’t long until Orange Circle Studio was born, a publishing company that puts thought, passion, and amazing designs into every product it creates.

You want a beautiful art calendar to adorn your bare walls? We’ve got that. Your life is a whirlwind? There’s products loaded with super functional planning features that will bring you organizational bliss. You’re looking for stationery that moves you, and journals that inspire? They’re here. We’re still new, and our ever-expanding line of products has us jazzed. We hope it gets you pretty excited, too.”

Because both my husband and I work full time, it is crucial that we plan our weeks in order to avoid the unexpected last minute hassle.  We like to have a wall calendar that easily displays both of our schedules as well as the weekly activities for the kids.  So, when I was asked to check out the Mom’s 24/7 Calendar from Orange Circle Studios, I was thrilled!

This magnetic calendar is the perfect size for my refrigerator keeping it at eye level for both my husband and I.  I love the month at a glance view where I can write all of the activities, birthday parties and appointments.  The bottom section is like a tear-out notepad with plenty of room to write a to-do list for the week.  The notepad is divided so each member of the family has their own section which makes organizing our life a breeze!

I also had the pleasure of trying out the Bold Blossoms Planner for on the go organization!  It is small enough to slip in my tote bag, but big enough to carry it all!  My favorite part of the planner?  STICKERS!   It’s the little things in life that amuse me! There’s just something fun about organizing your professional life with stickers, right?

There are a couple of things that I absolutely love about this planner.  First, the design is playful and fun while not looking too young to carry in my office.  Secondly, I love the tear out grocery lists!  I can jot down things I need throughout the week and on Saturday, rip the sheet out and carry it to the store in my pocket!  The one thing I would change about this calendar would be that I would make the monthly view larger.  Currently, you see two months on one page which doesn’t give me a ton of room to write.  However, the space for weekly planning is more than sufficient (and of course fun with the stickers!).

summary

Overall, I love my new calendar and planner from Orange Circle Studio.  The quality of both products is excellent and the price is right, too!  Both items sell for $14.99 each.  The tear out grocery list is a feature I have not seen in most planners and one I can now not live without.  While the weekly notepad feature on the calendar makes organizing my family’s schedule easy while keeping it visible at all times.
