Busy Body Book Giveaway! — 5 Minutes for Special Needs

Busy Body Book Giveaway!

by Tammy and Parker



                               

I am a Mom that needs to be organized. There are days that my sanity has literally hung on my planner.

Not only do I have the usual stuff to keep track of I also have to remember:

  • Ever changing medication schedules.
  • Therapy appointments. Times four.
  • Doctor appointments. Times a bajillion.
  • Names and numbers of doctors, pharmacies, and therapists.
  • Parker’s homeschooling themes.

And that doesn’t even include tracking my other 5 kids’ stuff! Plus weekly menus! And my appointments!

I’ve tried lots of different planners, but would get frustrated with the itty bitty spaces provided to write down all the stuff I couldn’t afford to forget.

So, I was exceptionally thrilled to be asked to try out a Busy Body Book, a fantastic personal & family organizer.

First off, I loved the simplicity of this organizer. I loved the space provided to keep track of everything. I loved that it is spiral bound and opens flat on my desk. I loved how it slips right into my purse.


Other features include:

    Months-at-a-glance
    Key contact pages
    Removable shopping lists
    2 front and back pocket
    Bookmark to help you easily flip to the current week.
    A full page each week for notes, to do’s , etc.
    A STURDY, clear plastic BEAUTIFUL cover.

We put the Busy Body Book to the test this last week while Parker was in the hospital.

My oldest daughter Bailey filled out the fridge calendar grid with each of my children’s names and where they were supposed to be when. Being able to see the whole family’s schedule at a glance was an extreme help.

We’ve also had to start tracking nightly info trying to find out why Parker’s heart rate has been dipping so drastically. I can easily write down each item necessary directly across from the daily date.

I’ve even started scheduling Paker’s homeschool units. We’ll be studying snowmen next week!

Now, I’ve chosen to use the planner to keep track of all things Parker, and the fridge grid pad for tracking the family.

But the beauty of the Busy Body Book is it’s versatility. You decide how to set it up to best meet your needs.

And we have a Busy Body Book that YOU can win! Just go to the Busy Body Book site and take a tour. Then come back and let me know which Busy Body Book feature would best help you organize your life.

the removable shopping lists would help

5 laura owens January 18, 2009 at 10:17 am

This would come in handy around here. Our household consists of 7 people, and sometimes it is hard to remember who is doing what and when. This Busy Body book would help me from having a bunch of little notes laying around reminding me of who is doing what on any particular day! And it’s cool looking , too!

6 Deci Worland January 18, 2009 at 10:32 am

I think that this would be so useful for me. I am a homeschooling mother of three; I work three part-time jobs and watch three extra kids under the age of 3. Trying to keep track of everyones’s needs and activities takes serious organization!The versatility of the Busy Body Book pages would allow me to set it up according to our weekly needs and plans, and I love that I could also plan ahead and even keep track of groceries as they need replenishing!

I am a mother, a wife, a business owner and a student. I would love to have something to make my life a little easier. I have tried planners but they are so bulky and there’s never enough room to write everything. This would be great.

The grid! With 5 young adults in this household, tracking who needs to be where, doing what, doctors, medication, school projects and trips. Firehouse functions, classes, my own work deadlines etc.. would be a lifesaver. Every feature of this book would work for me beautifully! 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity
