The BusyBodyBook Organizer Giveaway!

Updated to add: This giveaway is now closed. The winner is #194 Megan!!

A couple of years ago I posted about how I organize my blogging.  I created my own notebook/calendar of sorts and that worked for me quite some time.  However as my workload increased I found that my homemade jobie wasn’t cutting it anymore and I floundered along in disorganization for awhile until I finally found the system that works for me now.

Now I use the BusyBodyBook to organize my blogging and it is working beautifully!  This is the one I have but there are also other cover styles to choose from.  Isn’t it pretty!

What makes this planner/calendar so unique is the weekly grid with 5 columns for each day.

I designate one column to keep track of my advertising spaces, one column to track my daily posting topics, one column to track my daily priority to do item, one column to plan ahead and one column for ideas.  I love how much better I feel knowing I’m on top of what needs to be done, it takes so much pressure off me which means less daily stress and I’m all for that!  I keep it right beside my laptop so I know what I’m suppose to be doing and when.  I use this organizer along with my List Notebook and together I’ve got one big brain dump…whoot!

Others use this calendar to organize their family…one column for each family member and that works great too because you can instantly see if you have any overlaps in scheduling.  You can also designate a column for menu planning as well or even tracking personal goals!!

Other highlights include:

  • Full months-at-a-glance pages in front of book
  • planning calendar for birthdays and anniversaries
  • perforated shopping lists page
  • important contacts pages
  • 2 large inside cover pockets
  • A bookmark always keeps you on the right page
  • Protective clear plastic front and back covers
  • Spiral binding
  • Dimensions = 7″ x 10″
  • $17.95 each

You have the option of purchasing the BusyBodyBook for the academic year (Aug to Aug) or the calendar year (Jan to Dec).   You can view samples of the BusyBodyBook pages here and for even more information, the BusyBodyBook was recently featured on the Daily Grommet!

Giveaway:

If you’d like the opportunity to win one of these great organizers simply leave a comment on this post (I’d love to hear how you would designate your columns) prior to Tuesday, August 31st at 4:00 pm PST.  Winner will be selected via random.org.  Open to everyone.

It’s time to get organized!

    I would love this and it would be well used. With 2 children, doctor’s appointments, bills, play dates, church and everything else this would be awesome!!!! I usually write everything in my planner, but there is so much in each day that I can barely make out what have written.

  17. 17
    Vicki says

    Eeenie Meenie Minee Moe…there are so many ways I could use this planner! I would use one column for menu planning, another for decorating projects, one for organizing closets/rooms, another for my duties as a scout leader, one for scrapbooking, another for organizing my photos, another for household chores…see the list is endless! I think I may need 2!

    Desiree says

    I am looking for the “perfect” planner for me. I am having a really hard time finding one that meets all my needs – organizing each family member’s schedule/appts, meal planning, fitness log and goals and almost most importantly it needs to be compact enough to fit into my purse. I’m thinking the columns could be my solution! Thanks Laura, for doing a review on this planner!

    Am looking for a new planner to help organize a larger household this year with 2 college students back in the nest. Looks like this would help!

    Karen Fisk says

    I would love this! I’m not sure whether I’d do breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, exercise… or more like a family organizer for kids and chores… but I know I could use it!

  24. 24
    Anita says

    I want to win it!!! I’d use the first 2 columns for the different school districts schedules. We pick up grandchildren from 3 different schools and get thier schedules mixed up constantly!!

  25. 25
    Adrienne says

    Oh…I need one of these to help keep my family organized! What a wonderful idea!

  26. 26
    Melissa says

    Oh, I love this, it would be perfect for me. Coulums would be: to do’s, Mommy, Daddy, Lauryn, Menu. I could eliminate the need for a second menu binder in addition to my planner. I’ve been on an organizing binge of sorts lately. My goal for the year is to have my kitchen completely organized and at least 3 of my closets. So far the pantry and most of the cabinets in the kitchen are done.

  27. 27
    Melissa says

    This sounds like the answer to my prayers! I am mom, run a home based daycare, I am tying up closing a second business, I do online schooling part time…and I’m getting married in May….I need something to help me keep on track!

    Katelynn says

    This would be so helpful! I’m a stay at home mom, but I also watch two other little boys. I’m running ten different directions all at once and this would be a wonderful way to help me stay organized, plan meals and appointments!

  31. 31
    Patricia says

    I love the fact that there is room for all five in our family. I’d love one!

  33. 33
    Melanie says

    what a great idea!!! I would use the columns for each person’s schedule in my family and the extra column for workouts. :)

    thanks!
    Melanie

    Lori says

    I am attempting (after many years) to become more organized in my home. It is a challenge. I have tried in the past without success. I think I was lacking to tools to help me on the journey. Just google organizing and there are so many websites with so much information that it soon becomes overwhelming – and daunting to tell the truth. I need a focus point, a grounding point to do this and I believe this would help greatly.
    Cheers

    Jessica Payne says

    I would love one of these too! I could use a column (or two) for kids activities and homeschooling stuff, cleaning schedule and things to be done, appointments, office work and book-keeping! The possibilities are endless!!! :)

  38. 38
    Jessica says

    Household work, Homeschool ( my daughter is only 4, so this is all the space I would need for now), workout, evening plans (including dinner).
    I love it!

  39. 39
    Meghan says

    I’d use it as a food Journal.

    Kristi @ Creative Kristi says

    Oh I would love to have one of these! I would use the columns for each member of my family, then blogging and household. :) Would work perfectly!!

  41. 41
    Amy A says

    With a 3rd little one on the way (4th if you count my step), I am getting to the point of absolutely needing a planner to keep track of everyone! Thanks for the opportunity!

  42. 42
    Lisa says

    What a cool tool! I would label the columns with the names of people in my family so I knew who had what going on when :)

  43. 43
    Becky says

    What an awesome planner! If I won, I would definitely use it to help with homemaking – a column for each zone!!

  44. 44
    Marseilles White says

    I would love to try this planner. I am a homeschool mom of three, two of those are teenagers and my husband is a seminary dean. So we are one busy family! I would use each space for each of our family members.
    Thanks!
    Marseilles

  45. 45
    Gilda says

    This planner looks awesome! I’d probably use the 5 columns for Me, Husband, Girls (they can share), Dinner meals and something notable. I’d use the left side for ToDo and Grocery (cutting it in half) for the week.

  46. 46
    Leilani says

    I love the different columns in this planner. I’m starting homeschooling soon so I would designate a subject for each column. Thanks!

  47. 47
    Kelly A. says

    This books looks great! I’d use one column for appointments, one for my fitness goals, one for crafts, and one for menu. And I’m sure I’d have lots of other ways to use it too!

  48. 48
    Melissa N. says

    weekly meal planner, my husband’s work schedule (split by organizing his teaching schedule separate from his own class schedules for his master’s degree), appointments, birthdays/anniversaries, application deadlines for various things, etc… Looks like a great planner!

  49. 49
    Laura L says

    This looks great! With a growing family that is busier every day, this would be a great way to track everyone’s appointments!

  50. 50
    Melissa says

    I’d use it for both work and personal, so the columns would help me split out my priorities for each. Thank you!

  51. 51
    Vicki says

    Oh wow – those are too cool!! I love the one you have (love the Fall one too)!!!
    I feel so disorganized right now I’m not 100% sure how I’d use it, but probably a row for each of us to keep track of all our activities!! :)

    Thanks for the chance!!

  52. 52
    Teresita says

    I really need a calendar/planner to organize my week.Please enter me.

  53. 53
    Elaine says

    Wow, I could really use this lol. Maybe I’d finally get organized.

  54. 54
    Tami says

    I need to get one of these for my hubby who lives by lists but struggles to keep them organized. I would organize the columns for him with these headings: to do / to buy / to call / to remember / to pray

    I think mine should say: meal plan / game plan / writing plan / shopping plan / plan to pray

    Maybe I’ll win one…but would I give it to hubby or keep it???

  55. 55
    LoriD says

    This planner looks great! I would use a column for each kid, a shared one for hub & me and the last column for tracking other household stuff (meals, projects, events, etc.).

  56. 56
    Carmen says

    I’d love one of these to organize my home life!

  57. 57
    Julie says

    Hmmm…Menu planning, home business goals, blogging, kiddo activities, and other (for various things that pop up). That’s what I’d use mine for!!

  58. 58
    Christina says

    Oh I so need one of these, my oldest daughter just started kindergarten. I feel the need to organize!

  59. 59
    Fiona in MN says

    Pick me! :) I would definitely use this for menu planning!

  60. 60
    Missie says

    I would use mine for family, menu planning, church, work, and an other column for all those things that don’t fall into the first four categories.

    I would be dangerous if I could get organized!

  61. 61
    xancodd says

    this looks fantastic! i have too much clutter, mental and physical, and this might help!

  62. 62
    Leigh says

    Oh, I would love this. I have four kids and work full time so I need a good way of organizing everything (which I haven’t done so well at lately). :)

  63. 63
    Amy says

    I’d love one! I like the columns you used as an example, but mine would probably be:
    Goals, Meals, Prayers*, Scrapping, Activity
    *Tami, I stole the prayers column from you. I struggle to get that “I’ll pray for you” wording in to actions sometimes as anything other than a Breath prayer for the person at that moment. Great idea!

  64. 64
    jdp says

    Wooo! Those are purty. I love the chocolate blue and white one. I wonder if I’d be more likely to use it since its so cute? lol

  65. 65
    Tisha says

    I would love to win one of these! I think I would use 1 column for work outs, 1 for meal planning, 1 for chores around home. I’m sure I could think of more!!

  66. 66
    Christina says

    This would be great to have a reminder of what each of my full-time clients need done each day.

    Wonderful giveaway!

  67. 67
    Renae says

    I’d love to win! This would be a great way to keep all my “stuff” together in the same place!!!

  68. 68
    Shelley says

    This looks like a way to organize the chaos in my head. I would use it to separate the different areas I like to focus on each day and what I wanted to accomplish. The exercise idea is good too!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  69. 69
    Jacquie Olsen says

    My whole life needs one place to be organized and this looks like it would work fabulously. My columns would include: chores, tasks/appointments, meal planning, and boy, maybe this would motivate me to get exercising and developing goals to get back into shape! I need all the help I can get right now. Thanks!

  70. 70
    Hillary says

    Ooh, I LOVE the idea of this book!

  72. 72
    Diana W. says

    I am an organizing and inventory junkie myself. You should see my lists. I would use this for personal things like diet and exercise and housework and shopping. The possabilities!

  73. 73
    Denise says

    I LOVE this idea! I have been blogging for a few years and have just really started to promote both my blogs and consider what direction they are going in. I think I would use the spaces to help me and guide me throuh this.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    KyleeJ says

    I would have them as part food journal, part blogging to-dos and part goals for my family and myself.

  75. 75
    Colleen F says

    I would probably have a column for each family member and then either a column for meal planning, or goal planning, or recording how much I walk.

  76. 76
    Blessed Mom says

    I have been looking for a new planner and I like the way this one is organized. I would use the columns to organize things like my schedule, daily priority, chores, exercise etc.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  77. 77
    Heather says

    A new planner is on my grocery list right now! I would love to designate my columns for my daughter’s preschool, appointments, meals from the menu for each day, chores to be done, etc. What a nice book this is! :)

  78. 78
    Nichole says

    I would love this planner, I would probably do a column for mom -me, dad, Molly, and at least one for dinners for the weeks and maybe if I had enough space one for lunches.

  79. 79
    Jenn says

    Love this planner!!! Would use to track food/diet and also exercise as I work my way to goal weight :)

  80. 80
    Melissa H says

    We’re a family of four so I’d use a column for each of us and the last for my menu planning for the week.

    J. Renee Causey says

    I Love it!
    Bought a planner over the weekend and now I’m wishing I would have seen this last week.

  82. 82
    2horseygirls says

    This is great! What a clever idea to use it for yourself, and to use the columns as different areas of your life. I’ve only seen the “demos” with names, not topics – love it!

    I would use mine to keep track of my daughter’s school, hubby’s work, my work meetings & appts, my investigations & court dates as a volunteer humane investigator and finally, the magical “to-do” list.

  83. 83
    Jesi Rhodes says

    The planner looks AWESOME! I would be so happy to win one :)

  84. 84
    Niki says

    those are cute. I am using a plain dollar store notebook. Need to upgrade. I would have a menu schedule but not really sure of the others. more than likely a cleaning schedule.

  85. 85
    Eden says

    I have spent the last few weeks looking at planners trying to improve upon the one I’ve used for the last few years. This one seems to fit all the stuff I’ve been looking for!

  86. 86
    Holly says

    I would use the columns for Household, Finance, Kids, Must Do Item, and Menu Plan.

  87. 87
    Beth says

    I LOVE Planners! I would probably break it up a bit for DH and I, let him get involved a bit :) I would most likely utilize the space for finances, chores, things to do, etc.

  88. 88
    Sara says

    This sounds great! I’d probably use it with one column for each family member plus one for meal planning or shopping trips for that week.

  89. 89
    Alicia says

    This looks incredible, being limited to one little square per day is craziness. :) Thank goodness something thought to expand. Thanks!

  90. 90
    kelley says

    Oh, I LOVE this idea!

    My 5 columns would be….
    1. Personal
    2. Husband/Child
    3. Work
    4. Menu plan
    5. Tasks
    5. ?

  91. 91
    Amanda says

    Please help me get organized! I’d make columns for our dinner menu, chores, and for each of my kids (the two small ones and the 38-year-old one I married).

  92. 92
    Beth Ann says

    What a stylish way to organize! :) Let’s see, my columns? Hmmm…..(subject to change-haha!) bills, homeschool stuff, church things, dh’s scheduled which is *always* changing, and….I’m not sure; maybe like a “job/chore” of the day!

  93. 93
    Elizabeth says

    Love the idea! Looks totally functional.

  94. 94
    Sarah says

    I love the idea of the columns! Here’s how I would label mine:

    1. Family/appts
    2.Menu plan
    3.Cleaning schedule
    4.Work
    5.Goals

  95. 95
    Elana says

    I’ve been ogling the BusyBodyBook for years. I would break columns into school, synagogue, fun and food :-) My eldest is starting kindergarten this year, and I def need the organizational help!

  96. 96
    Candy says

    Oh, this would be so great for work. I could use a column for different projects! That would be awesome!

  97. 97
    Erin says

    I have never seen this before and I LOVE it! Being a super busy mom who chauffaurs to soccer practices and games, is a cub scout den leader, has a full-time job that requires me to be on call 24/7 and a graduate student, I could really see this calendar format working well for me.
    I would probably use one for my son (when/where is practice, when/where are games, when/where are scout activities), one for myself (work deadlines and projects, when class assignments are due) one for scout stuff (when events are taking place, when requirements must be met) one for chores (easy ones that my son and I can take share the responsibility of) and one for goals because I always have a ton of things I want to get done as time allows.

  98. 98
    Rochelle says

    I would love this! I have been eying them more seriously these past few weeks; I seriously want it! I would designate a column for my children, husband, myself, writing, and cleaning. I think. It’ll probably change 5 times by the time I get one.

  99. 99
    Cassie says

    Oh this planner looks great! I’d do something like this:
    1. Dinner Menu
    2. Daily food log
    3. Appts.
    4. ??
    5. ???

  100. 100
    Deb says

    I think this looks fabulous!~

  101. 101
    Jamie M. says

    This could be very useful!! My columns would be Kids, Yearbook, Parent’s day out, Church, and Blog.

    Danielle says

    A planner to help me organize meal plans, workouts, schedule and appointments? Bring. It. On.

    ME ME ME. I love this planner, but just stick to printing out the freebie pages.

  106. 106
    Dawn Paulson says

    1. Homeschool activities
    2. Lunch
    3. Dinner
    4. Church to do’s
    5. Home to do’s

    Katie Taylor says

    I’m a little OCD and love buying new planners to keep me organized because I currently have everything listed on my smartphone, list above my desk at home, in my planner, and on sticky’s just so I don’t forget. I’m going back for my masters so life’s going to become a little hectic balancing my work & school schedule with my husband’s school schedule, not to mention the obligations of keeping a home in order. I would designate the columns as follows: Me (appointments & to do items), My hubby (appointments, school schedule, etc.), School (for my school assignments, etc.), Bills, Work obligations

  108. 108
    Erin says

    I am so disorganized I can’t think of what columns I would use, but I know that it would help me!

  109. 109
    Abby says

    I love organizational books and planners and these look amazing! I think I would designate as work, school and home related (bills, etc). My schedule is getting an overhaul soon with school (like everyone). :)

  110. 110
    Debbi Does Dinner Healthy says

    I have been thinking just this week that I NEED to get an organizing plan before school starts in 2 weeks. I homeschool my 3 kids so my workload will be increasing. A lot. I’m already overwhelmed. This sounds awesome! I’m going to check out the site, thanks!

  111. 111
    LuAnn says

    I could really use something like this!

  112. 112
    Barbara says

    My family says that I tend to over organize and I am beginning to agree. I have so many notebooks and calendars going. It would be nice to have just one organizational book to use. Would love this one.

  113. 113
    Lindsey says

    I would love this! I am starting my 3rd year of college so it would be a great way to organize homework and blog posts! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  114. 114
    Lindsay T says

    I need this planner! I am so busy right now its unbelievable!

    I would separate it into these 5 categories:
    1. School 2. Home 3. Meals 4. Exercise and 5. Misc

    Kristan @ The Stepford Wife says

    I’ve been in the market for a new planner lately, and this one looks great!

    I think my columns would look like this:
    -Meals
    -Cleaning/chores
    -Baby (feeding & diaper & medicine)
    -Errands
    -Misc.

  117. 117
    Debbie in GA says

    Nice format! I would probably keep track of household chores, errands, and my health management.

    sarah lynn says

    with lots of foster kids and lots of appointments, i would probably designate one column per kid!

  123. 123
    Julie says

    Maybe this would be just what I need to have it all in one place. Probably chores/ school/ life and who knows what else.

  124. 124
    Joy says

    I would love to win this, as my husband and I are finally expecting our 1st child anything to help me get on track with organizing would be great!

    tzigane says

    i really need a new planner too! i would designate one column for each of us (mom, dad, girl, boy) and then one column for church stuff (hubby is a pastor) as it takes up a lot of our time!

  128. 128
    Christa says

    This looks like such a great book. Love visually oriented designs. I would probably use it for organizing menu, me, my husband, homeschooling and the gym! Thanks for sharing:)

    Ahh, this would add to my obsession of calendars and organization. One column for each family member is perfect for the five of us!

  143. 143
    Rebeeca F-H says

    I’d love to have this instead of my makeshift notebook version.

    Columns would include:
    Classes Teaching
    Classes taking
    House
    Personal
    Husband

  144. 144
    Danyelle says

  145. 145
    Sheila says

    I would also use it for blogging purposes. Your categories sounded similar to mine! I’ve seen this book before and if I don’t win I’m going to have to break down and buy one, it looks AWESOME!

  146. 146
    Sharisse says

    I have one and have been using one now for several years and this book is my LIFE!! I love love love columns and need everyone’s schedules spreadout. I use one for mom, one for dad, one for son and one for daughter. I still have an extra column leftover for things not pertaining to one particular family member (i.e. family member coming into town, due date for a bill, birthdays, anniversaries etc…) I bought one years ago, stopped for a while, tried other methods (electronic and paper) and ended up coming right back to it. Kids can use it for school to lay out their subjects in columns. I work fulltime, school parttime, 2 kids, husband, church, son plays on not one but TWO soccer teams, daughter also plays soccer. Between practices, games and everything else going on in my life it’s all in there!

  147. 147
    Sarah says

    I would definitely use mine to keep track of our family. My husband and I are both fulltime elementary education students, and juggle this with caring for our soon-to-be one year old son, as well as our inservice hours at low-income elementary schools an hour away.

  148. 148
    SarahT says

    5 Columns for organizing time seems perfect for our family of four. One for each person’s schedule and the extra column would be by reminders for paying bills, mailing birthday cards, etc. Thanks Laura!

  149. 149
    Alison says

    I’m usually very good at thinking outside of the box… but seriously… I’ve never thought of using those extra columns for anything other than the members of our family!!

    I NEED one of these and I would use it to organize our meal planning, carpooling, birthdays, and to keep on top of when things are due, etc.

  150. 150
    Bri Schaaf says

    Wow…how fun! What a great way to stay organized! Im personally running around like a mad woman and would love a new planner!

  151. 151
    Jennifer says

    I think, before giving it a lot of thought, I would have each family member have a column as we as family activities. Thanks!

  152. 152
    Anne says

    I like the food journal idea. Maybe it wouldn’t feel like tracking calories if the journal is adorable.

  153. 154
    Shawn says

    I would love to be entered …they are so stylish and CUTE!

    I think I would have columns for each of the following
    track my food (as I am still trying to lose weight)
    kids activites
    church activites
    school/work dates to remember!
    misc

  154. 155
    Meal Plan Mom (Brenda) says

    Oh, this is super cute–I could so use one of these for organizing my blogging too! But at first glance I can also see it’s awesome potential for organizing my family’s schedule–a different column for each person. Or perhaps just for all the different things I need to do:

    General Projects/to-do
    To-Go
    To-Call
    To-Buy (helps me consolidate trips to think about where I’ll be on certain days)
    Emails/Computer-to-do

    The possibilities are endless!

  155. 156
    Holly says

    I use one and I LOVE it! I am excited for a new book with a new cover though and would love to win one.

  156. 157

    Java says

    Alright, you’ve convinced me! After leaving the comment on my blog, I’m going to hold off purchasing my planner and see if I can win one instead! LOL!! I plan to use my columns for me, my husband’s schedule, one for kids, and weight loss goals. Thanks for being so generous and holding the give away!

    This would be just perfect for my first year in university. Good luck y’all!

  159. 160
    Tracy Dietrich says

    I love your blog!! It continues to inspire me. I would use it for exercise, food intake ( really need to see this in writing), blogging, work, kids schedules etc etc etc etc etc -keep on inspiring us!

  160. 161
    kim says

    Love the book. My columns would designate my priority of the day, for the location I am in.(eg. job 1, job 2, volunteer place 1, volunteer place 2)

  161. 162
    Jennifer says

    I was just saying to my husband the other day, I need to organize my daily activities better. I need a place where I can write down everything I need to. Working full-time with two young kids, you need to be organized! Would love the organizer!!

  162. 163
    Natalie says

    Awesome! I would use one of the columns for menu planning, another for the gazillion activities my daughter’s in, one for appointments…ooh lots of options! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  163. 164
    Mary says

    I would have a column for: homeschool, hubby, appointments, mom’s stuff, birthdays, and everything else!

  164. 165
    insanitycooks says

    This organizer would be great!! I would have a column for Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, TeamKIDs, meal planning, and sports. My whole family is very involved in so many activities that I have to stay super organized or nothing would get done. This planner looks like it would be perfect for me!!

  165. 166
    Sarah H says

    One column would have cleaning items for the day, one food prep to do, errands, random notes/thoughts and then probably appointments.

  166. 167
    Deanna says

    I’ve got an old one and need a new one. I love having it! I have 5 kids, so each kids gets a column. So easy to keep track of school functions with it!

  167. 168
    Deanna says

    I love the columns in this planner….my brain is spinning with how I could use it! Meal planning, errands to run, events and appointments, blogging, housecleaning, etc. I could probably fill twice as many columns, LOL

  168. 169
    Jori says

    I would love this! Some columns I would use would be cleaning tasks, menu items, activities to do with the kids, and exercise.

  169. 170
    Jennifer says

    I would love to win this calendar! I would divide mine up based on housework, doctor appointments, meal planning, weekly errands and blogging!

  172. 173
    Marci says

    I am a 7th grade English teacher . What a great book to use as a planner for school. It like the compact size and the columns would be perfect for the different subjects. The page on the left would be for notes for the day. Good idea for next school year….

  173. 174
    Karen says

    I could really use a new planner!

  174. 175
    Joyce says

    I would use it to organize workout schedule, menu plans, “school”, and household tasks schedules.

  175. 176
    April Vereb says

    I would love to win! My columns would consist of “mom”, “kids”, “menu plan”, “bills”, etc… ;)

  176. 177
    Barbie says

    Not sure what I’d use it for, but I’d use it!

  177. 178
    Heather says

    I would love to be entered! It’s so pretty and functional! It would be difficult to choose what to put in the 5 columns. Maybe one for school, one for chores/errands, one for my social life/spending time with family, one for meal planning, and one for special projects.

  178. 179
    Heather says

    O I would love to win one of these! I was just checking them out but I don’t know that my husband would love if I bought another planner! (Though I swear to him this seems to be the end all be all of planners!)

    I’d make it MY planner & make each column for something for me. As a mama of 2 under 4 I don’t get much me time & forget to do things like pluck my eyebrows. LOL

    My columns would be
    TO READ, PERSONAL CARE, EXERCISE, and, um…something else…just gotta think

  179. 180
    Amanda says

    I love the idea of using something like this for a household planner. One column for to dos, one for meals, one for daily chores, one for appointments, one for personal….there are so many possibilities!

  180. 181
    Amy says

    Love this, one for me & dad, one for each kid.

  181. 182
    Mel H says

    With the Hubby’s activities, daughter’s school and dancing/girl scouts, my life and all the family things that go on (Hubby is the youngest of 9), I could easily use this!

  182. 183
    Skooks says

    I love the column idea! I would probably do work/dinner/errands/blogging/thankfulness. What a great idea. :)

  183. 184
    Amanda says

    I’d love one of these! I love the fact that it has 5 columns. Since I work at home I think the different columns would be so helpful. Mine would go like this; 2 for work, bills, appointments, meal planning.

    Thanks!

    Oh wow with a busy school year with the PTA, Girl Scouts, a new mom and all of that Jazz this could really come in handy

  185. 186
    Jenna says

    I would love one of of these! I might have my columns as the following:
    Chores, Exercise, Menu, Projects, and Take Note (for birthdays, anniversaries, appointments, etc.)

  186. 187
    Hedi Jõesaar says

    I would use one for all sorts of things i have to do round the house, one for shopping list for menu, and one for possible business thins to do.

  187. 188
    Jennifer says

    I use a family calendar printable that I created on MS Word to post on the fridge. I also have a personal spiral bound planner that I keep for my personal use and schedules. This would be a great replacement for my old planner!

  188. 189
    Cook Clean Craft says

    I’ve just realised my blog needs some serious planning and organisation (particularly as I’m trying to get ahead in my posting as Bub No 2 is due in two months). This is just what I need!

  189. 190
    Tammie D says

    I have never seen this before, but this would be so super awesome to have. Right now I would need a column for Dr’s appointments, court appointments (we are a custody case with my ex-husband over my 12 yr old daughter and we are having to see a court appointed therapist so that would need a whole column by itself), menu planning, soccer practice, ballet classes, guitar classes, cheerleading practice, piano lessons, home school schedule, chore list for all of us (we all have seperate chores to help around the house, including mom and dad) and I am probably forgetting a million other things…….hmmmm, maybe I would need two or three of these lol but winning one would be such a blessing!!! I saw someone had put about printing off free pages, wonder if that is still available? My husband says I need a briefcase on wheels because I have a huge binder for each seperate even right now, including coupons!!!!

  190. 191
    Rachel Sweet says

    This looks great. I would love to get one and become more organized. Thanks

  191. 192
    Marian Washburn says

    I am in need of one of these. I am starting back to work soon for the 1st time, in a long time. I have two kids and a husband to keep track of plus I do volunteer work.

  192. 193
    Peggy says

    hmmm How would I divide the columns, mmm House tasks, dinner, appts for dh and I, my daughter and my sons.

  193. 194
    Megan says

    Hmmm It would be tricky to narrow down to 5. I am a grad student, so probably 3 for classes, one for research and the other for the rest of my life :)

  194. 195
    Vanessa D. says

    I would love one. I am seriously considering buying one for my boss for Christmas. She needs it as badly as I do!

  195. 196
    Melyssa R. says

    I’m a homeschooling mom and this planner would be great for keeping notes about each subject during the week!

  196. 197
    Jen says

    I have seen this on a few different blogs, and I love it! My husband is a youth and music pastor and this would be wonderful to help keep track of youth activities, music activities, other church activities, as well as home commitments for each member of our family.

  197. 198
    ynaffit says

    Ooh! I’d have a meal planning column, a homework column, a column for my daughter, a random to do corner, maybe I’d switch ‘em around! It looks like fun! Pick me!!!

  198. 199
    Betsy M says

    I would have a column for my schedule, one for my hubbies, one for meals, one for my daily to do and one for the kids I think. This would help out with the organizing tremendously!

  199. 200
    Ashley Baker says

    I would LOVE this organizer!

    I would definitely have columns for:
    1. Me Home
    2. Me Work
    3. The husband
    4. The daughter
    5. Other. Because there’s always an other.

  200. 201
    Emily says

    I’d designate columns for my personal stuff, my work stuff, my husband’s stuff, and one for each of my boys.

  201. 202
    Heather says

    This would be awesome to have! I’m currently using a similar product but its too large to fit in my purse. This would fit perfectly.

  202. 203
    Jenn @ Beautiful Calling says

    I’m not sure yet. This fall I’ll be a bit of a work at home + homeschooling (preK) mom so organization is definitely an essential!

    jennifer @ beautifulcalling.ca

  203. 204
    Jennie M. says

    I have been trying to get things together to make my own household notebook. This might be a good start for me. I would probably use my colums similarly to you. With one for “to do’s”, appointments, ect…

  204. 205
    Kendra says

    We started hosting a foreign exchange student, so now my life is busier than it was last school year, so this calendar busybodybook would work wonders to keep the entire family organized!

    canuck_grad says

    Oooo, I’ve been eyeing this as well! I am a mommy and work p-t and am trying to finish my PhD, so I’d have no problem filling the columns! Probably would be: dissertation, other school projects, exercise, menu, home.

  207. 208
    Heather says

    With having three small children, teaching full time, and taking care of our household…this organizer would come in so handy! I’d have a column for school, one for home, one for blogging, and one for bills…what a way to keep it all organized so easily in one place! I’m totally buying one if I don’t win, but I’d love to win :)

  208. 209
    DeDe says

    This looks like what I’ve been searching for! I would label the columns for each family member plus one for church activities.

    DemMom says

    I would love to try this!

  210. 211
    Nonalee says

    There are four members in my family with each one having several activities. I would use the first four column for each member of my family with the fifth one being a running “to do” list for the week. I would love to win the organizer. It looks terrific!

  211. 212
    Pam says

    What a great planner! This would be wonderful to keep everything in our household straight. With two boys involved in scouting, sports, and church activities as well as our work, church activities and volunteering, I need help in keeping everything organized!

  212. 213
    Veronica says

    What a great idea to use it to track blogging info. I also would use the columns to track my kids activities. Loving the idea of perforated shopping lists too!

  213. 214
    KarenG says

    I am always in search of the perfect planner. This might be the one! I would have WORK, KIDS, VOLUNTEER, FITNESS, FUN STUFF as my categories.

  214. 215
    Sheryl F. says

    I need this organizer before school starts and I go back to work part time.

  215. 216

    Oh I need this! Now that school has started I can’t keep my thoughts straight or even remember what day it is! Who knew first grade was so complicated?? :)

  216. 217
    Kathy Schindler says

    Love this organizer!! Would love to have one.

  217. 218
    Erin says

    WOW!!! Those are great! I think I would do my FT job, one for each of my side businesses, home stuff and the last for personal. Or maybe one for each member of my family (there are 4 of us) and then one for our home.

  218. 219
    Jenn says

    Ooh! I would love something like this! I am a WAHM so I could have a columns for work stuff and columns for home stuff and columns for kid stuff all in one place! perfect! Pick me!

  219. 220
    Valerie says

    Ooo, yes please! I need some organization in my life! This would be great!

    Karen S. says

    This would be the PERFECT planner for my sis. She just had a baby at 24 weeks) and with all the doc visits such has the heart, pulmonary, pediatrician etc… it would make it so much easier for her to keep track of Alexis’ appointments! I’ve been looking for just this type of planner since February! Thanks for considering me. :-)

  222. 223

    I am not sure how I would designate the columns yet, but I do know that I need something to keep me more organized! I would love to win!

  223. 224

    This would help me organize subjects while homeschooling 4 kids. I couldn’t find one like this at Target or OfficeMax.

    Dawn says

    I would love this. I am juggling 4 kids & homeschooling. I am loving your site!

  225. 226

  226. 227
    Vanessa says

    Oh gosh, how I could use this book. I’d probably designate it to household chores, menu planning, a column for the kids, etc.

  227. 228
    Molly says

    I am an organizing junkie too! My whole life goes into my planner! At the beginning of every year, my quest for the perfect planner takes place…it includes one trip to Barnes and Noble, Borders, Target, Walmart and Office Depot. Then I compare all of the planner at all of these places based on what my year is going to look like and then, only then, do I allow myself to return to one of the stores and buy the perfect planner! This planner looks different than any I have seen!

  228. 229
    Amanda says

    LOVE IT!!! I definitely could use this in my life.

  232. 233
    Ramona says

    I would use it for meal planning! Maybe then I could stick to a schedule ;)

  233. 234
    Dawnette Thomas says

    Having five children, I would use 4 of the columns for the kids (the baby doesn’t need a column yet) and the 5th column for family activities. This looks as if it has a reasonable amount of space to write the information.

  234. 235
    Cinella says

    This looks like a great planner. I would use one column to jot my schedule for work, one for food, other for activities and another for todo list.
    Thanks for a chance.

  235. 236
    Jane says

    I am not organized-waste too much time looking for stuff

  236. 237
    Amy says

    There are a thousand and one ways that I could use this planner! I think I would designate one column for the kids activities, one for the weekly household schedule and the others for goals in different area I have. :)

  245. 246

    Lori Stauske says

    I absolutely think my busy body book is the best ever! I have used it now for the past 2 years. I use a column for each person in my family of 5. It works great! Perfect Calendar! I would love to win another organizer and this organizer I would donate to our schools auction coming up in October. Somebody would love to have this for the start of the new year. In the last month I have gotten 3 of my friends to order the acedemic calendar. I showed them my calendar and told them it is the best one ever! So…. I would really love to donate a calendar and get somebody else organized as well. That would just make my day! :) Our school is St. Pauls Lutheran in Grafton WI.
    Thanks for considering myself for a winning calendar! Much appreciated! Busy Body is THE BEST…..and makes my life so much easier! Love it! Love it! Love it! :) ~Lori

    i would use it to organize me and my 4 children. i would love this.

  248. 249
    Monica says

    We use this kind of calendar on the wall with everyone’s name and we can see schedules instantly and we love it. But it would really help me personally to track the following categories:
    1. MIT – “most important things” to get done
    2. Bible Study
    3. House Management
    4. Meal Planning
    5. Projects

  249. 250
    Tara says

    Love the BusyBodyBook! It is a very useful tool in so many ways.
    My categories are: me, my husband, my son, birthdays, anniversaries, meals, events (State Fair, Craft Sales, Etc.).
    I could REALLY use a new book for 2011. Finances don’t allow for me to purchase one at this point in time.

  250. 251
    Patti says

    Joan – I love your planners. They are wonderful!

  251. 252
    Hope says

    I love it! I would designatae columns for myself & the kids. Hubby doesn’t have the crazy schedule that I do bc I do all the running of the kids plus a lot of volunteer work & I work full time from home so this would work great for keeping track of everyone!

  252. 253
    Catherine says

    This would work perfect for me. I am having a baby in November, so I could use one column for my baby, another for me, another for my husband, one for house stuff. It would be great!

  253. 254
    Dereth says

    I would probably use it this way-
    Home- household chores etc.
    Spirit- spiritual goals
    Workouts- exercise goals
    Meals/food journal
    To do- things that need done outside of the house

  254. 255
    ctdaffodil says

    How would I use it?
    I have 2 active boys who play sports and music lessons, volunteer at school, teach church school, am on pto and board of ed, we are a very active family in scouting and being the stay at home mom (who is rarely home) I drive my aging parents to their dr appts – there isn’t a week I’m not at some dr’s office with them or my own kids.
    I think my column headdings would run something like this.
    Mom – Dad – Kids – Scouting/Church – Dr Appts
    My Husband travels a good bit, so he would get his own column – then it would be easier for me to track him down for things like hair cut reminders, please pick this up on the way home errands and when someone calls me to see if he could do this or that on a particular day – if he is in town or not.

  255. 256
    Sonya says

    this looks so cool!! I think I would use it to keep track of appointments and meetings and I really like the idea to have the menu planning column

  256. 257
    Jody H says

    I would love one of these! I’ve never seen anything like it, but it’s exactly what I need! I would use the columns for a shopping list, to do list, kid’s activities, etc.

  257. 258
    Andrea Watts says

    I need this!

  258. 259
    Molly says

    Ooooh… I’d assign some columns like workout, daily cleanup (mostly so I can check it off each day, which makes me feel really productive), one of “something I need to do today that’s on my medium-term to do list” like mail a package or call a tax guy, and a running grocery list. They’re so pretty!

  259. 260
    Tracy says

    I NEED something to organize my life. Home Business, Kids, Hubby, Daily activities. . . .. Ack!

  260. 261
    Jeannine B. says

    I think I would use it to highlight one “to do” goal in each area of my life: Home, work, PTO, hobby, etc. I think it would be a great way to help me cross off my to do’s by focusing on one from each area, each day!

  261. 262
    Michelle Thompson says

    This would be so handy for me, I have 4 kids and a husband, I would 30 hours a week out of the home so I need to be very organized, there is so much going on with school and activities it would be perfect to keep track of it all plus I would think about a column for my daily diet as well, that’s a great idea. God Bless and have a great day!!

  262. 263
    Lauri says

    I would love to win this and help me stay organized. Not sure how I would organize the columns yet but I hope I win! Thanks.

  263. 264
    Sara N. says

    L-O-V-E IT!!!! I would use it for meal planning, to-dos- appointments, goals, and hmmmm – misc!

  264. 265
    Kim M says

    4 kids in school this year…. YES PLEASE :)

  265. 266
    Jenni says

    How very cool! I’m not sure yet how I’d use it. I could go a few different directions: name columns or homeschool, church, extracurriculars… Just having the option would be awesome!
    Thanks as always!

  266. 267
    Ginger says

    I’ve never seen a calendar layout quite like this one! What a great way to plan everything. My “titles” for each column would be:
    Mom, Dad, Meal Plan, Errands & Urgent.
    I think this is a wonderful tool .

  267. 268
    S. Davis says

    I would love to try this – thank you! Don’t know how I would organize it, yet. Have just started using a spiral for daily lists this week & am enjoying that so far.

  268. 269
    Lisa says

    This is awesome. I would use each column for each person in my family.

  269. 270
    Sara Bairnsfather says

    I feel like I am in a constant state of trying to get organized and finding out what works and doesn’t work for me. I really like this organizer. I would probably designate the columns for each family member.

  270. 271
    Cheryl says

    I have never seen anything like this before, love it! I would designate the columns for the projects of the week, in addition to one for regular daily routine things.

  271. 272
    Flo says

    I’ve used the grid system to block out every hour of the day for a full week and colored in each block to indicate what’s happening(sleeping, traveling, whatever) so I can clearly see what time is availabe in my day for whatever it is I want to get done. I’ve told people how useful the grid can be especially for college students trying to do it on their own. Your organizer looks like it would be useful for staying on track with daily activities and looking ahead for future needs. Sign me up!

  272. 273
    MomsManyProjects says

    What a wonderful idea! I’d definitely have a couple of columns for my blog, but I’d also want to keep track of meal plans and an exercising program.

  273. 274
    Tara Jo says

    yes please, our household could use some serious organization :)

  274. 275
    Patty says

    I’d label my columns the following: Blog -personal, Blog – blog link, SAT, Office, Relaxing for each of the “work” tasks beyond homemaking and homeschooling each day. What a great giveaway. Thank you!

  275. 276
    Jennifer says

    I need more organization in my life!

  276. 277
    Melissa D says

    I would LOVE to win this!!!! I am a planning notebook/list junkie. Thanks for showing stuff like this!

  277. 278
    Sue Bates says

    Love this! I have a wall calendar very similar. Always wanted a more personal size one. I have columns for me, hubby and each of the kids. Now that I only have 1 kiddo at home (have 5 total, others have flown from the nest) I have a column for the dogs as needed or family plans that we all are doing/invited to.

  278. 279
    Sue Bates says

    Sorry also used to use different color ink for each person in the house before I found the columned calendar! Still use that for my portable (purse) calendar.

  279. 280
    Cassie says

    Hmmm, not sure how I would designate the columns, but I’m sure I could find something! What a great idea!

  280. 281
    Melissa says

    I’d use one column for each of my 5 kids. That’s brilliant! Of course, my 3 yr old doesn’t have much going on yet, but I can surely schedule his play time/reading time/meals & snacks etc…

    Thanks for sharing this one. Might have to buy it if it’s in our budget.

    Melissa

  281. 282
    Sue says

    good morning to you Laura, lets try this again I did it last night and it ended up on my wall.. hopefully you saw it.. anyways consider this my entry for your awesome giveaway.. and hope all is well with you and the familia… tc..

    Sydnee says

    I am a military wife and mama of 3. This would be a fantastic helper to keep everything up to speed.

  283. 284
    MyLinda says

    I would love to have a new planner! I think my 5 columns would be TO DO KIDS, TO DO MOM, DINNER, EXERCISE, BLOG/PROJECTS

  284. 285
    Michelle says

    I want to win!! I would use it for blogging, menu planning, some work activities, birthdays, play dates….it’s endless. I’m getting excited just thinking about it!!!

  285. 286
    kristin says

    HELP!! I’m organizationally challenged! This might help :)

  286. 287
    Andrea says

    I NEED ONE!!!! With a baby on the way, a third grader, a preschooler, play dates, sporting and family events my husband and I are going crazy! This would help! A LOT:)

  287. 288
    pam says

    i’d like to enter :) i plan to use the columns for home projects, housework, kids’ activities, business phone calls, church to do

  288. 289
    Alyssa says

    I’m not really sure what the columns would be, but probably some like this:

    -What God is teaching me in his Word (inc. chapters/verses read that day)
    -Something I can do for my husband (either special and/or something he needs me to do for him)
    -Exercise (list out activity, time spent, and calories burned)
    -To Do (top 3 highest priority items to complete for that day)
    -Other (random things I need to jot down)

    Thanks for posting this giveaway!

  289. 290
    Beth says

    I would use this to organize my family of 5’s schedules. And there is a lot of organizing that can be done.

  290. 291
    Elizabeth Santiago says

    I have been debating using a different system, I currently Use Frnaklin Covey and seem to be needing to view the month at a glance with notes next to it. So I would use one column for my daughter and her school schedule, one for my household TO DO items, one for my personal schedule, one for menu (dinner for the day) and last but not least, bills to pay or reminders. I think this would keep me much more organized.

  291. 292
    Candy M says

    I would love to win this!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  292. 293
    Kim A says

    I would love to win this! I’m trying to get my life organized and this would definitely help!!

  293. 294
    Brenda M says

    This is exactly what I have been looking for….there are so many possibilities on how I could use it. For sure, on column would be for my short term goals (both personal and spiritual), maybe one column for each child and the last one for meal planning. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  294. 295
    Lipstick Jane says

    I never thought about using this for bloggin or just me. What a great idea for the house: menu planning, cleaning, exercise, etc. or I would use it for a goals/new habit journal. Maybe I should get two. Ha!

    Thanks for the great ideas. Keep it up!

  295. 296
    Marin D says

    That is a nice book. I would designate a column for various tasks. I would do a housework column, personal column, meal column, etc. I have been trying a write on/wipe off calendar to keep track of when I should do what “chores” and it hasn’t worked out well. LOL.

  296. 297
    marney says

    Nice! Looks like a great idea!

  297. 298
    Karrisa says

    I’m a single mom with two girls. I would designate one column for each daughter, one column for my personal stuff and one column for my business stuff. I might even use the last column for meal planning or maybe just things that involve the entire family.

  298. 299
    Anne Marie Devine says

    hoping my lucky Canadian loonie brings this to me in time for my daughter and I to head back to school.

  299. 300
    Andrea says

    So exciting!! I’d be so thankful! Awesome giveaways. : )

  300. 301
    Connie says

    PLEASE enter me to win this planner. I am so unorganized. I am constantly having to look for papers that I need for something and when I need to check a date to see if we have anything planned it is almost impossible to do. This planner would allow me to keep everything in one place.

  301. 302
    Carolyn Williams says

    I could so use one of these! I would make my columns: Me (for plans and meetings), Hubby (he is taking classes so I could keep track of him), Girls (I have 3 girls and they all have schedules), Dinner (so I can plans weekly meals) and then a misc category where everything else would go. :)

  302. 303
    Connie says

    I would designate one column for me, my husband, and each of my 2 boys. The other column would be used to plan menus for the week.

  303. 304
    Jess says

    I would love this! I think my columns would be more of a priority scale. Needs to be done -> Do sometime :)

  304. 305
    Susan says

    Very nice! I would label each column with my roles (wife, mom, teacher, etc) and write down my daily goals in each area.

  305. 306
    Brandie says

    I would so love one and need one! It would help me get back on track with everything!

  306. 307
    Kara says

    I need something like this!!

  307. 308
    Anne says

    I love organizers and boxes to organize things in. Thanks!

  308. 309
    LauraLou says

    I would love to win!! I am looking for ways to become more organized and your site is very helpful. Thanks!

  309. 310
    Jessica B says

    This is SO what I have been looking for!!! I work two jobs and keep track of my main boss’s schedules (both home and work). I would use one column for myself, one column for my boss , one column for my diet (I have to eat certain things), one column for to dos and one for random.

  310. 311
    Kristen says

    Thanks for the chance.

  311. 312
    Helen D says

    This organizer sounds awesome! Even though there are only three people in my house, it seems we are all running in separate directions. If we weren’t organized, I wouldn’t be even the least bit sane.

  312. 313
    Jen Allen says

    This is a fantastic idea! I just got a wipe board from Kohl’s that is set up similarly and have it next to the fridge…it is a great way to see what each person in the family has going on. I love the other creative ideas for using the columns too!!

  313. 314
    Karen says

    My boys are in grades K, 1, and 2. Surprisingly, there are so many projects due and activities going on that I seem to be meeting myself coming and going. I’d love to be able to make columns for each child and get myself organized!

  314. 315
    Judy says

    I think I would have the column headings be family names. With school activities, fall sports and 3 kids, schedule conflicts need to be caught early.

  315. 316
    Christine (iDreamofClean) says

    Oh, I would love to use this for blogging! I have a system now but things are getting more and more hectic so a new system would be great!

  316. 317
    Robin Dean says

    I would need 2 – in 1 i would use my columns to keep track of my students (SPED) in the other a column for me one for hubby and then both of my daughters are engaged so keeping track of wedding stuff for 2 is a chore…. wow I really need one of these…

  317. 318
    Sarah Steele says

    I would LOVE this!! My husband teases me about my lists but they really help keep my (and his) life organized. I mean, how would I *ever* remember to buy him ice cream at the store if I didn’t write it on my list. :) I’m new to your blog but I am loving it so far!!

    -Sarah

  318. 319
    Karen L says

    Am always looking for ways to organise this household. This organiser looks like it might just do the trick. And it comes in pink!!!!

  319. 320
    Debbie says

    I love it – one section for home management – what needs to be done; one section for meal plans ; one section for gardening notes ; one section for special events & appointments – one section for notes…. this is now on my wish list.

  320. 321
    Rebecca says

    I am in Sydney Australia and probably can’t win anyway, but I would use one column for each of the family, I am so excited about this organiser that I have just sent an email through to the company to see if they will ship to Australia.

  321. 322
    Kelly Villanti says

    I desperately need one of these! I would designate a column for myself, my husband and each of our 3 children since I never can seem to remember what classes/meetings/appointments everyone has scheduled!

  322. 323
    Jen says

    Great planner – would love one for myself to organize my family of 5!

  323. 324

    Jennifer says

    This is so made for me!! I would us the columns as “Mom”, “Dad”, “Gabby” and “Family” – it would be so helpful for us!
    I love your bl0g Laura!

  325. 326
    Angela says

    I love planners! I love the layout of this one and would definitely use it to help me keep up with ideas for my blog posts.

  330. 331
    Veronica Corral says

    I love the ideas of 5 columns to help keep track of all the different things to do in an organized way in on place! Hopefully I can win one.

  331. 332
    Karen S says

    I would love one, I can keep track of my full time job, part time job, my granddaughter’s school projects, play dates, girl scouts and my scrapbooking business.

  332. 333
    Emma says

    Ooh, this would be so handy. I would use one column to plan out blog topics, one to keep track of appointments, one to plan my menu, one to plan any pre-cooking/soaking/organising that needs doing, and one to plan housework.

  333. 334
    Susan says

    This looks like a great organizer. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. I’m not sure how I’d use the columns. Probably as a menu planner.

  334. 335
    Mara says

    I would love to win one of those! Maybe I’d finally be able to get organized. With homeschooling, freelance writing and family life, it seems I just can’t get it together. If I do, I lose it. LOL I think one of these BusyBodyBook Organizers might help.

  335. 336
    Amanda G says

    I love BusyBodyBooks. I definitely need a new one!!!

  336. 337
    Karen says

    I would use the columns for work, household chores, one for each of my kids, and if there’s one left menu planning.

  337. 338
    Casherie says

    So I would use this all the time! This is going on my wish list. My columns would be: (by priority) Family/Church responsibilities/Work responsibilities/Home tasks/Personal daily goal. I love that it’s less than $20!

  338. 339
    Jennifer says

    MANNNN this would help me sooo much. I currently work FT, go to school FT, trying to balance my direct sales business, and homework.. and establishing how to fit friends or a life or family time in there.. this would really help me sort it all together.

  339. 340
    evi says

    I’ll have my first baby in December so I would use the calendar to keep track of how’s the baby doing and developing. If there’s still room, I’d also add how I am doing – also regarding eatinghabits and exercise.
    What a beautiful calendar!

  340. 341
    Kate says

    OMGosh, I could organize my whole LIFE in that book! Or most of it, anyway … one column for money tracking, one for daily chores, one for events, birthdays, and so on, one for tracking work on bigger projects, one just for random thoughts & ideas …

  341. 342
    pinkbeary says

    I would write milestones/funny stories/random things that my kids say or do on a daily basis. This planner would make it easier to keep track of my three kids under 4 yrs. old.

  342. 343
    Isabel says

    It’s so cute and useful at the same time! I guess I will keep track of my health (trying to get pregnant), work, meals, chores and some “me time”

  343. 344
    Grace says

    Wow this is perfect. I have only been blogging a few months but I have realized rather quickly there is so much to do and getting organized has to be one of the main areas to focus on. My daughter has been pushing for this for a while now because at the present time she is doing the photos (I am learning) and she returns to full time classes soon and insists that we have a schedule that we adhere too.

  344. 345
    Jennifer Hayes says

    I love this idea. My headings would be child 1, child 2, husband, appointments and bills

  345. 346
    Katie says

    This organizer looks wonderful! Thanks for all your tips!

  346. 347
    Sarah K. says

    I feel like I always start using things like these and wind up not following through. this would be nice to try– I might use it as a diet and workout log…. or maybe to keep track of trying to keep our house in order!

  347. 348
    Cheryl Shaw says

    I would love a planner like this one. I would have a column for each family member. I have used different colored pens for different people, but these columns would be much easier.

  348. 349
    Mary K says

    I would like to win this — I have become so disorganized lately and I pick up the pieces of my newly “single” life.. I need to get organized again!

  349. 350
    Morgan Anne says

    this looks WONDERFUL!!! Between 3 kids and working full time, school, preschool, dance and what nots this looks like it would help keep us all headed in the right directions!!

  350. 351
    Christine says

    Despite being retired, I definitely could use a little help with organizing my days! I’d use this planner for personal goals, workout plans, food record, things to buy, and a to-do list. Anything would help!

  351. 352
    Michelle Williams says

    I would love to try this out- I’ve been trying all sorts of methods to keep track of everything!
    I am a balance of electronic (google calendar) and paper organizer, so finding the middle ground is hard!!

  352. 353
    Carol Anne Hankinson says

    I am starting my second year as a stay at home wife/mom after working out of the home for years. I need as much organizational help as possible! Would love to check out a new planner!

  353. 354
    April says

    I would love to win this! I would have a column for a team I lead, a column for business, a column for family, a column for afterschool activities, and one for meals!

    Love it!

  354. 355
    Kim says

    I would love this!

  355. 356
    Stephani says

    I could definately use one of these! With having 3 kids now (2 going back to school), starting a new job and going to school, I have a lot to keep track of!

  356. 357
    Christy Ammel says

    Enter me, please. I need a good planner. This one looks great!

  357. 358
    Jamie Sutch says

    I would LOVE to win one of these. I’ve been checking out the website, but haven’t bought one yet :( This would be PREFECT for me instead of having numerous notebooks floating around like I do LOL

  358. 360
    katie says

    Wow, what a fantastic looking tool! I would love to win one!

  359. 361
    Sara says

    This looks great! I’d love to win!

  360. 362
    kel says

    This looks simple and to the point-actually usable!!! I’d track personal goals- diet and fitness and spiritual. Thanks! lmessimer@aol.com

  361. 363
    lara says

    could use one for my husband!

  362. 364
    Julebug says

    how awesome! I’m a new mom… and our house is on the market. I only have a few hours a day to get things done, I’d definitely use those columns to help organize my daily/weekly tasks. That’d HAVE to improve my time management! I might just have to buy one even if I don’t win…

  363. 365
    Jessica says

    Now that fall is coming up, my already disorganized life is doomed to get even more nuts. This book would definitely help!

  364. 366
    Nancy says

    I’m in need of organization!!

  365. 367
    Debbie says

    I’d love to win one of these. I think I’d use it as a household note book. Keep a running shopping list, errands, phone calls, appointments, menu planning, extra-curricular stuff for the kids.

  366. 368
    NerdMom says

    I would love to win this!!! I would use it for my blogging stuff. I do everything else on Google Calendars but I like to have a hard planner for blogging. Weird eh?
    I would have a column for each blog. With the last one to use for my church tweeting and FB’ing.

    I think I would use it for blogging as well – one column for each of my two blogs and the others for things like backend work and social networking. Lots of possibilities with this planner!

    It would be so nice to have this calendar. I’m not sure what I would put in all columns, however, one would be for to do task for that given day, a menu planner, and a blog topic column These three things seem to take up valuable brain space for me, and I would like to just unload it and then tackle it. :)

    I am sure if I gave it alot of time, I could come up with others, but those three things would be a must!

    I would most likely use it to organize what I eat for my suppers for each day of the week. I’d want to plan ahead so I can get all the ingredients ready. And I’d also organize workouts from the P90X for me and my boyfriend. And anything else I need to do during the week.

    Tracy says

    I think I would use headers such as, devotionals, meals, photography,
    reading, health plan, journaling…at least these are my thoughts for now. I would most likely use a pencil so I could change up :-)
    Thanks for the chance to win one of these, it’s so me and I would put it to good use!!

    I like the idea of scheduling exercise for the week along with other goals.

    This is the most PERFECT planner I have ever seen! I need this! Let’s see…I am a stay at home mom..used to be a daycare provider and this would of been wonderful for me. My husband is military and a volunteer fire-fighter and coach so I need this for his schedule alone :) We have 5 kids, ages 12-3 that all attend different schools and all their activities and did i mention the dog? I need to pencil his vet appt in! Love it! I need this to keep me sane!

    This would help me to organize my time. I’ve tried using computer and web-based tools but nothing seems to work.

    Katie says

    I would use one column for supper ideas, one for what I am planning on wearing to work each day, and I’m not sure what else. Love these!

    So neat… I would love one now that my kids are getting older and have their own activities.

    Elle says

    One of these could really come in handy for me! I have so many things going on that I could use the five columns for any number of different categories lol! I guess for me the most effective use of the columns would be: |Appointments/Errands| Kids | Menus | Personal Development | Organizing Tasks |
    I think that would cover most of it!

    Denise Gee says

    I would probably label the columns with family member’s names and then one for Goals. Having a daily place for goals makes it easier to break them down and make sure I’m working on at least one every day.

    Caramel Cutie says

    This is so cute. I would be able to keep up with all the family members using the columns.

    chaya says

    This is a great planner. As a teacher, I have to be organized, outside of school. I can see using this for food and my blogs.

    I am not sure but each blog would get a column and then I would use another for dinner and another for baked goods.

    Sara Carbaugh says

    I would love to get an organizer like this to schedule out blog posts, project creation, client work and even home projects and tasks as well!! So many cool ideas!

    Mindy Jennings says

    I would like to use this planner to organize my family and all of our activities. Each column would be a family member’s name. I would so love to win this planner!

    Amanda Jo says

    What a great organizer!!! I love how you can really personalize it and see everything at once. I’d certainly have colomns for myself, my husband and our son but I can could also add my Women’s Ministry lists as well as bills or a menu!!!

    Jen Peifer says

    I’m always looking for ways to stay organized!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This would be great to keep soccer and dance schedules straight. (Not to mention homework, housework, doctor’s appointments…need I say more?)

    It’s been a long time since I’ve used a BusyBodyBook, but it can’t be beat for organizing multiple kids’ schedules/appointments!

    I SO need this. I’m a mess and just can’t figure it out. This looks awesome!

    Kim says

    I would LOVE to try this planner!! One of my big goals this year has been getting myself organized – and I’ve done better. But, I still have little To Do lists and notes everywhere (and two different calendars). I need one location for everything and something I can take with me. I would probably use my columns for (Have To Do, Need To Do, Want To Do, Must Do Now, Ideas of More To Do). LOL! Or, perhaps a more practical (Household Needs, Errands, Schedule/Appointments, Goals, & Ideas).

  404. 407
    Colleen says

    I could use this to organize my home/housework/menu planning; maybe another one to orgaznize my home family daycare with curriculum/activities/menu planning; and yet another to organize my duties as the church nursery director. So my columns would be a little different for each one of these.

  405. 408
    Sheri O says

    This is so cute! I love the extra large spaces to write in – calendars that have tiny squares just don’t work for me! One column for each family member and menu planning and I’d be a happy (dare I say organized?) mama!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Well, it’s Tuesday august 31st at 3:04pm so nothing like coming in right under the wire, huh?
    I’d probably be more organized with an organizer. Hehe
