momAgenda Giveaway

This giveaway is closed.  The winning number is 28.  Congratulations, Jen!!!!!  And mega thanks to momAgenda for sponsoring this giveaway!!!

I know, I know, I said the Clarisonic was the last giveaway of the year.  I lied.  Not knowingly, of course! But yesterday I heard from Nina Restieri of, and she offered to donate a momAgenda Desktop as well as a set of notepads for me to give away.  I couldn’t turn THAT down, so THIS is officially my last giveaway of 2008.


I met Nina at an event last summer, and I talked her into doing a giveaway on my blog.  And she’s so nice that she sent me a momAgenda of my very own in addition to the one to give away.  I swear to you that I don’t know how I ever lived without one.  It has space for my own appointments, space for the activities of up to four children, and a place to write dinner plans each day.  And since I only have three children, I use one space for my blog deadlines and reminders.   It’s open on my desk at all times, and I have been much more organized and responsible since I started using it.  I think I might possibly be their biggest cheerleader.

And here’s a funny thing — I was shopping in a boutique this summer, and I saw a collection of momAgendas on display.  I asked the lady behind the counter if she owned the shop, and she did, and I told her about meeting Nina and how I love my momAgenda but had never seen them in stores before.  She turned around and grabbed her open momAgenda from the desk behind her and said that she couldn’t live without it.  Oh how we bonded over the momAgenda.  So you see, not only does the momAgenda keep you organized, it promotes peace and harmony among women everywhere.

Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but trust me, if you have kids, you need one.  (There is also a Wall Calendar if that floats your boat.)  And right now, momAgenda is offering 20% off storewide. That includes already reduced merchandise.  This sale is unprecedented in the history of momAgenda, but as Nina says, “These extraordinary times call for extraordinary savings.”

WIN IT! Yes, I was getting to this part.  It takes me a while sometimes.  These extraordinary times also call for giveaways!  If you would like a chance to win a momAgenda of your very own (and the accompanying set of notepads) just leave a comment on this post and tell me your biggest organizational challenge.  Want to double your chances?  Mention this giveaway on Twitter. (Don’t know what Twitter is?  See the prior post!)  If you tweet it, make sure to leave a second comment so you get your extra entry.  I will randomly select a winner on Monday.  (This giveaway is open to residents of the continental U.S.)  Good luck!!

UPDATE:  This is from Nina.  She left a comment but I figured I’d copy and paste it here in case people don’t read all the comments!
