Just a little shelter from a chaotic mom schedule!

You might remember my review of the BusyBodyBook last year. That same BusyBodyBook is still sitting on my desk as we speak and I use it daily to keep track of my school assignments, blog posts, doctor appointments, and even our family get togethers (which lately are quite often) .

The weekly grid layout of the BusyBodyBook continues to be one of the most useful layouts you will find in a mom friendly organizer. With five separate columns to fill out you customize your BusyBodyBook any way you please. I currently use my five spaces for my : daily events including birthdays, doctors appointments, errands to do, blog posts due, and the last one is the wish list of things I would like to get done. I only wish I actually finished that last column more often.

One of my biggest complains last year was with the cover of the BusyBodyBook. The design of the book itself is similar to a spiral notebook and though I prefer it bound that way as you can fold it over to see just the page you want, if you are constantly dragging it in and out of your diaper bag (or school bag in my case) the cover gets pretty worn fairly fast. Well the 2009 edition added a great super thick new see through cover on the front and back of the book which will protect your BusyBodyBook from the wear and tear of daily life. Otherwise the design is exactly the same, which we have no complaints with as I absolutely love the layout of the inside of the BusyBodyBook.

You can get your own BusyBodyBook directly from their website or on Amazon!

mannequin said...

The organization and layout sounds terrific; with 5 different columns. That's part of the reason I don't like traditional calendars, because things should have their own categories.
I would love to begin the new year with a mosaic BusyBodyBook and throw away all those scraps with notes saying "get a calendar".
Thanks so much!

Brooke Lorren said...

August-Sep 09 Dots. Our house caught on fire a few months ago and our calendar burned along with it, so I'm sort of lost now without one... of course most places aren't still selling 2008 calendars.

I really like the look of the Busybody book... I'm a homeschool teacher so I'm in the process of making the lesson plans for the next year, this would help me coordinate when to get supplies!
