This Holiday Giveaway is part of the Season of Giving Holiday Gift Guide. A new giveaway will be released each day through December 13, 2011. Check out all the great gift ideas and exclusive coupons in the Holiday Gift Guide and watch for more chances to win!

I am guilty of having too many things on my plate and loving it all!  Two years ago, I was flying by the seat of my pants hoping I didn’t drop one of the many balls I had flying around in the air, then last year I got a Busy Body Book.

I’ve never had luck with organizers.  They just don’t have enough… well, anything… for me to keep track of five people’s busy lives, plus my growing business and the church’s kids camp that I run each year.  But, this one is different (and I’m not just saying that!).

It has more than enough including:

  • Weekly calendars with individual columns for each family member (up to 5)
  • An “Important Dates” monthly calendar for birthdays and anniversaries
  • An “Future Events” calendar for next year’s appointments and events
  • Month-at-a-Glance calenders to help plan holidays, vacations, and events
  • Section for contacts
  • Pockets (2) for notes, papers, and other stuff
  • Full-page notes n each weekly page for to-do’s, notes, lists, and other doodles
  • More notes areas in the back!

Want a fun FREEbie?  Download the FREE Busy Body Books Weekly Grid Sample Pages designed by a good friend and amazing blogger, Mandi of Organizing Your Way.

I’ve found another family organizer, and I’m trying to compare it to this one. Does anyone else have this organizer? Or a different one to recommend? Thanks!

28 Beth June 7, 2012 at 5:52 PM

Well, this one is a actual book organizer/planner and that is software. You can’t take it with you every where you go, is think, but I didn’t look into it too much.
