Review and Giveaway : The Great Planner Debate!

This contest is now CLOSED. Check back tomorrow for the winner!

To recap my great planner debate I reviewed three planners all three were great planners with great features but only one will travel with me to school every day!

MomAgenda - Desktop :

The MomAgenda is the most luxurious of all three of the planners I reviewed, but it also has the highest price tag of $42.00. It also has the most features of the planners listed. I really admire its simple but but super soft binding. This was my favorite of the group purely from a vanity standpoint. The only thing that I didn't like was it size. It is a little big to fit into my book bag or my already overloaded diaper bag.








Whomi - Clarity :

This is the smallest of all three planners and offers an option of scheduling your day by the hour. It has a waterproof plastic case which makes it ideal to throw in your purse. Though I was very tempted by this planners size I would have not used the time based feature (I'm far to lazy). Size wise however I really admire this planner's compact footprint.





BusyBodyBook :

This planner has the most bang for the buck priced at only 16.95. It offers many of the same features as the MomAgenda in a more condensed format. I admit I was highly tempted by this planner as though its still bigger than I am normally used to toting around it is very thin and it fits nicely in both my diaper bag and book bag.



So which planner did I choose? I honestly had a really hard time deciding. All three are great planners and honestly I cannot say which one is better than the other as they all have very unique features that will fit everyone differently. All three sat on my desk for the last few weeks but my heart was with the MomAgenda from the beginning. I however needed something smaller so I contacted MomAgenda and got a MomAgenda mini sent over. Its perfect! Its small (though still on the thick side) it has everything I was looking for and I still feel like a princess carrying it around. My only regret was that I didn't get it back in august so I could make full use of it (it goes august-august). I really love the BusyBodyBook as well its practical so I decided to use it at home on my desk. I almost felt guilty choosing just one as all three of them are great!
That brings us to the first giveaway of the new year!! I am going to give away my Whomi Clarity and MomAgenda Desktop to two lucky ladies (or guys!). Read the previous reviews of the MomAgenda Desktop and Whomi Clarity and tell me if you won which planner you would prefer. Also give me a short blurb as to what feature you like most about that planner. Make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win (either leave me your email address in the post or have it available in your profile or blog). I will choose the winner on Jan 8th from all the valid entries (those that have an available email address and answer both parts of my questions!) I do have some extra credit as well. Blog about my giveaway for one extra entry and/or add a link to me in your sidebar for five extra entries. If your doing the extra credit make sure you let me know in your comment!

Honestly, I'd like to win either one. Both look nice. I really like the colors. I need to get more organized in 2008. ~lol~ :)

dodo said...

I would like a MomAgenda Desktop because it lets you view the week and month for yourself and other family members. It also comes in a really pretty color :)

Paige said...

I would have to vote for the Whomi - Clarity, because portable is the key. But they all look fabulous, and just the thing to help get us organized around here.

Patriot said...

I would like the Whomi Clarity because of it's size and the fact that it is waterproof. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by and entering! I would definitely think that BKF will clean that tub!

Amanda said...

I too love the Whomi Clarity. It would fit perfectly in my purse. Thanks for a nice giveaway!

Robin said...

I love the pink agenda one. I totally don't mind it's size and love it's classic look! And it's pink! What's not to love. :) It looks like it has the most options for organization and info-keeping.
Thanks for the contest! They all look fab.

Katelyn said...

Though both (all 3 actually) look great, I would have to go with the Whomi for sheer size!

Stacey Moore said...

I would be thrilled with any of these great planner but if I had to pick I would pick the Whomi Clarity. I like it because it is small enough for my purse!! Thanks

tAnYeTTa said...

please count me in. i need to organize my life. this is the right tool to do it :)

jbubolz-miller said...

The whomi clarity- it wouldnt take up much room and the hourly scheduling feature is something im looking for!

Ginny said...

I would love to win the MomAgenda Desktop, there isn't a specific feature I like, I like them all! It has everything that I need with my 2 kids busy schedules!

Stacy said...

want it want it want it.... randomly generate me in this direction!

Deborah said...

I would LOVE that MomAgenda Desktop - beautiful~!

Andrea said...

I'd love the MomAgenda Desktop as well! Annnd, I like it because you said it has the most features of all of them...I love features! hehe :) And thanks for entering my contest as well for that cloth diaper cover...as for cloth diapers for skinny babies - well, I never actually had much of a problem because my mom and i made all of our cloth diapers so, we made them VERY adjustable (most of the store bought one's arn't quite as adjustable...at least not in the skinny way of things)...so I'm sorry, but I don't really have any good cloth diaper ideas...unless you want to make some! haha :) I haven't tried a lot of other types of cloth diapers...but the few that I have tried are all too big on the waist as well...so I definitely know what you mean about finding something to fit our skinny little guys! It's a lot of help to have a mom who knows how to sew really well! Good luck though...if you wanted the pattern or something I could email it to you though. :)

windycindy said...

Happy New Year! Either one would make me a happy camper. If I had to choose one, it would be the desk style calendar. That is where I do my preparing for the week and use a calendar! Thanks very much.....Cindi

Nan said...

I want the Mom Agenda one because I need something large and pink staring me in the face telling me to get organized. So I like it because it's enormous and pink and I know it will stare me down on a daily basis.

Stephanie said...

Definitely the MomAgenda! I love how cute and classy it looks! I need this so bad!

Danielle said...

They are both great and I would love either, but if I HAVE to choose, I'd go with the MomAgenda.
I too love the size of the Whomi, but wouldn't use the hourly feature...I've tried that in previous years with planners and ended up going back and getting a regular one!

eph2810 said...

Sounds like you found the perfect planner for you. I have tried planners before, but I seem to be bad about writing things in my planer.

Blessings to you and yours.

nor_lou said...

So hard to choose, the Whomi is small enough for a purse but the MomAgenda is just as great and so princessy. I would love either but if you make me choose I pick the MomAgenda :)

Nissa said...

I so need an organizer! Either would be great, but the MomAgenda sounds like my kind of planner (It had me at PINK!)

NannaBee said...

i really like the mom agenda!This one would be greatly used!happy new year and thank you

Courtney said...

I would choose the Whomi because of the small size. Compact is vital for me.

Colleen said...

I would want the Mom Agenda Desktop because it's pink. I love anything in pink. My husband says I buy things just because they're pink. You know what? He's Right!

I blogged you too at www.mommiedaze.wordpress.com and you're in my blog roll.

Amanda Titus said...

I think all moms can use help re-organizing & constantly coming up with new ways to be time efficient. Great product.

TheAngelForever said...

I like the Whomi because of the compact nature. I could toss it in the diaper bag and have it with me on the go.

Happy New Year!!

lace said...

Either Planner would be great.

I agree with you that the MomAgenda is very beautiful.

I like that this planner allows you to have a color coded spaces for more than one person.

bison61 said...

I'd go for the pink mom agenda - I like the larger size. more options and features for planning!

Taryn said...

I'd prefer the small momagenda. I agree w/ you about a too full diaper bag and since I only have one child so far I don't need too much writing space.

frannie said...

I would love the mom agenda (hopefully in pink! :)

and I love it because it is large! I prefer big day planners.

thanks so much for the chance to win!!

T'aowyn said...

I would like the Clarity because of its compact size and waterproof cover. It seems very durable.

Jennifer said...

I'd be happy with either, but if I had to choose, my 1st pick would be the Mom Agenda, simply because it's big. I write pretty big & I like lots of space, so that feature really appeals to me! Thanks for the chance to win! Happy New Year to you & yours!

Jennifer :-)

orchidfae said...

I need the MomAgenda - Desktop, because I lose things easily, and am doing college work from the computer daily. I also take care of hubby, daughter, dog and cat every day plus work overnights on the weekends, this would be such a help!

ecrawley said...

I would have to say the Mom agenda. And why? Because it's luxurious and darn it all moms deserve a little luxury in their lives!!! If one day I don't have time to do anything with my hair besides throw it in a ponytail I can whip this baby out and feel completly put together! Thanks for the giveaway!

Margie said...

I like the Busy Body Book because it is perfect for crazy busy people like me!

LIDARKSIDE said...

The MomAgenda - Desktop is the nicest looking and would probably fit in my wife's pocketbook.

nicole said...

I like the Whomi - Clarity its small and would fit perfect in my purse just right for me

PJHANSEN65 said...

with my hectic lifestyle momagenda would be my choice

blueviolet said...

the Whomi-Clarity is perfect for me because I really have to structure my day to keep myself accountable and on task. I wish I didn't but if I don't, I procrastinate and get distracted. It helps me be the most productive in the shortest amount of time.

Erica G said...

The whomi, because of its size.

Jenn S. said...

Tough choice, I would have to go with the desktop. I love the looks and all the features, and I usually write tons on my calendar pages and need as much space as possible.

Julie C said...

They both look awesome, but I'm excited about the Whomi-Clarity. I need something extremely portable to take with me when I leave the house, and really need some way to keep track of everything I need to do within a day (not simply a calendar with a tiny square per day). I could finally do away with all the little notes I carry around with me and simply put it all in the Whomi-Clarity; I seems like the perfect tool for me!

julie68 said...

Oops, I forgot to leave contact info. Here we go again:

Tara said...

I would have to go with the Busy Body Planner. It gives me what i would need and slim enough that I would not feel the weight in my bag. Being the new Parents Group President at my son's pre-school, i need alot of room for planned events & this would be a dream!

Qtpies7 said...

I need a planner of any sort, but I have been looking at the Momagenda, which is out of my price range.
The other would be great for having in my purse, but I don't like to schedule by the hour.

Wendy said...

I'd have to go with the MomAgenda, because it has spaces for me and all the kids. Just what I need!

annette0908 said...

I would love to have the MomAgenda because of the color, the soft color and the large size. It would be perfect to leave out on my desk.

Doreen said...

I would love to win either one really but I do think I love the MomAgenda - Desktop the best though but either one would do the job! Love PINK (woooot!!) and it has the most features of the planners! Love that it let's you view the week and month for everyone. Love the soft binding too--extra plus!

The MomAgenda - Desktop is just what I need! This planner seems to give you the most amount of options that I need being a fulltime mom/student and mother of four!

Sam said...

If I win I would like the Mom Agenda planner. I love the supple cover, the first class paper, the inside papers that are color coded in light pastels, the section for vacation planning, the huge section for taking notes and the Mom Essential for phone numbers inthe back of the planner. Thank you Buddy. My e-mail address is garrettsambo@aol.com

I need the Mom Agenda. I am so busy with the kids.

Anonymous said...

I'm in love with the MomAgenda because it's pinkalicious and pinktastic. When something looks good, it puts me in a good mood and helps me be more productive.
I actually have pink lamps and a pink swivel chair in my workspace at home because of that feel-good factor.
The large size of the MomAgenda doesn't bother me because I always carry around a huge bag with my entire life in it anyway.
You also mentioned that it had the most features, which is very appealing to me because I have a million pieces of paper with lists, addresses and things to do that I would love to organize in an agenda for easy reference.
I also think it's adorable that it's called the MomAgenda, because moms need to be organized more than anybody else. We're not just keeping track of our schedules, but our kids' schedules and our pets' schedules.

pancak said...

Although I'd really like the features of the MomAgenda, the size of the WhoMI Clarity seals the deal for me. I have a decent desktop planner at home and need a portable one for my handbag. The waterproof feature insures the Clarity will make it through the year in one piece.

LadyJ said...

I would choose the MomAdgenda Desktop. I could really use a quality planner to get weekly appointments and errands organized. Thank you for holding this great giveaway; I'm crossing my fingers to win!

Anonymous said...

I love the color on the adgenda desktop but WOULD USE the WhoMI Clarity because of its size so that one for Me.

fangirl said...

The WhoMI fits my lifestyle. I need to be organized, but in a simple easy to read way. Also, it will fit in my purse.

Amy said...

I would love to win the MomAgenda because it is pink and (hopefully) I could find it easily in my overstuffed bag!

rosannepm said...

I like the mom desktop agenda...just right!

I think the MomAgenda for sure. The color is fantastic plus I think it has just the right amount of space for my crazy life. Plus I agree with another blogger, I could easily find it in my bag. :)
