Are You a BusyBody? Book Review and Giveaway {Ends 9/12}

Yes, I am a BusyBody but not the kind of BusyBody you are thinking of. My days with a newborn and toddler are jam-packed. Sometimes I wonder how I will ever make all my tasks for the day if I do not become an octopus and grow 5 extra arms! As a reviewer, web designer, editor, mommy, wife, and assistant pastor's wife keeping track of my days is highly important. I MUST be organized.

I am sure many of you are the same way. When I discovered the BusyBodyBook Personal and Family Grid Organizer, I was excited. What a great way to stay organized and to keep track of all that is going on, not only with you but the whole family!


Since I was about to have a baby when the BusyBodyBook Organizer arrived for me to review, I contacted a dear friend of mine, Ashley, for her to use it in her personal life and let me know how she liked it. I was highly intrigued by this organizer because it was so different than other planners that I had seen. It was larger and had more spaces to plan out your day than ordinary planners.

Ashley is a busy mom just like me and many of you readers. She is a big user of planners so she was the perfect person to try the BusyBodyBook. Here are her thoughts on the book..."There are many things about this BusyBodyBook that I love. The pockets on the sides are nice to hold my lists and coupons for when I am shopping. I also used them for holding important papers that I needed to keep track of. I love the plastic cover because no matter where I stick this book it will look nice when I pull it out to write an appointment on it. This is important to me because I love to keep a nice clean appearance at all times.

The months-at-a-glance calendar is nice when you want to recall the date, or see what the date is in a few weeks from now. My favorite part of the planner is the weekly pages. They are sectioned off into 5 parts for each day and each page has a week on it. This came in handy when I wanted to keep track of each family member's schedule and my own. I was even able to put my menu planning in one section. It was nice to have it there all together to view quickly.

On the left hand side of the book there was a "to doodles" part. Half the page was lined and half was blank. This is where I put my grocery list for the meals I had planned. I love this book! It would be great for busy moms like me or students who need a subject planner!"

Not only does BusyBodyBooks make planners but they also have great Weekly Grid Pads. Since I do a lot of blog work, I plan to purchase one for my office when we move. I love how big and open it is. I can plan out my week's blog posts but also the house work that I need to get done for the day. I also love that the Weekly Grid is undated and has magnets and is 3 hole punched. You can put it on your fridge, your desk, or even a standard 3-ring binder!

I truly think EVERY woman out there needs a BusyBodyBook. You can purchase one through the BusyBodyBook site for $17.95. That's a great price for a book that you will use daily and for a whole year.

Since we all know that you are a busy body, one reader is going to get their chance to choose a BusyBodyBook for themselves. You will have your choice of the one of the following:
