Holiday Gift Guide: BusyBodyBook {Review & Giveaway - 3 winners!}

BusyBodyBook logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Gretchen, bored2quickly and betty baez!}

If you were to look back through my inbox, the phrase that shows up over and over in my emails is Where does the time go?

The days of our family having relaxing, casual evenings and weekends seem a thing of the past and I'm pretty sure that the years from when my husband and I slept in and had breakfast in bed are from a completely different lifetime. Suddenly I feel like each week is spent struggling to keep track of activities, appointments, errands, blogging, sports, trips, and more... leaving my brain feel like it is running on overload.

With so much going on with all of us, I knew that I needed to improve on how I keep track of everything (pretty much all in my head) or else I was risking things falling by the wayside. Fortunately, BusyBodyBook and their collection of organizers, planners, and calendars are just the thing for busy moms (and dads) everywhere to keep life under control.

With a line of products designed to help every individual manage multiple activities at once, BusyBodyBook provides the clearest view of one's schedules and commitments to most reduce the hectic aspect of our lives. Who doesn't want that?

Considering that the award-winning BusyBodyBook GRID format has the ability to be customized to fit your needs perfectly while showing the agenda of the entire family in their own spacious column, I knew that the Personal and Family Calendar with the weekly GRID planner was just what I needed.

And when the stylish Blueberry design arrived, I was ready and willing to get my life (and that of my family) organized.

BusyBodyBook organizerAvailable in calendar year or academic year options, the possibilities seem endless with this calendar.

Right away I liked the bright, modern design and the durability of the sturdy pages and thick plastic front and back cover. It was easy to see that this was one tool that was made to hold up to an entire year's worth of being opened, closed, stuffed into a bag, yanked out of a pile, written on, and more.

In the inside, there seemed to be just enough of everything that the user has plenty of space to write down information without it being cluttered. I love the way that there is room for each family member or area of your life and that when writing in anything from sporting events to work meetings to household chores, it only takes one glance to see if you have booked a playdate at the same time as a check-up with the dentist.

customizable plannerI love the versatility of BusyBodyBook organizer, as the five columns can be used for family members, work deadlines, weight loss tracking, household chores, meal planning, and more. With a blank page on the left for notes and a to-do list, you can quite simply have the schedule and priorities that matter most to you right at hand.

getting organizedAs well as the GRID columns, I appreciate how much thought went into making sure that this BusyBodyBook contains just about every feature that I look for in a planner.

If you're someone like me who likes to be able to see the full month at a glance, that is offered:

monthly plannerIf you like to have a place to take notes throughout the day or make to-do lists (which are perforated for easy removal), you have plenty of space for those as well:

to-do listsOr if you're someone who likes the small things such as a movable bookmark so that you never have to flip through page after page to find the current week, no worries! BusyBodyBook includes that as well.

This organizer can do it all! I love being able to combine a desk calendar, a planner, and more all into one stylish place and have plenty of room for every aspect of my day. With the ability to get life in order for a single, working adult to a busy, stay-at-home-mom (to everyone in between), BusyBodyBook has the products that will work for you.

Retailing for $17.95, the Family Organizer is just the thing to help you get life's craziness under control during the busy back to school time of year. Also available from BusyBodyBook, the 7-Column Undated Weekly Grid Pad ($12.95) provides even more space and a magnetic backing so that you can always have it at hand on your refrigerator and their Wall Calendar ($14.95) makes it possible to see all of your family's information in one glance.

For 2012, let BusyBodyBook help make sure that you don't miss a single appointment or deadline - or give the gift of organization to someone in your life that will surely appreciate it! You can even test out how well the innovative GRID format will work for you with BusyBodyBook's FREE downloads! And, thanks to their generosity, three people will be prepared to start the new year off on the right foot as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of item from BusyBodyBook!
