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 momAgenda.com, 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!

  1. I have four kids, homeschool, teach at a tutorial two days a week and teach S.S. My beiggest organizational challenge is just keeping my head above water. Seriously. I long to be one of those naturally organized people who jsut “have it together” instead, I survive on 4-5 hours of slepp a night because I am still trying to get the must do’s done at midnight. I have to get up at 5″00 to get in exercise and everything else just comes at break neck speed throughout the day. I know I am no busier than anyone else, I just am TERRIBLE at organization and time management!

  2. My biggest organizational challenge is laundry!! I am always behind. I also have a hard time scheduling “work out” time.

  3. I won the MomAgenda when you did the giveaway last summer AND I LOVE IT!!! It has helped my organization in so many ways – planning meals is much easier, keeping up with children’s schedules is less confusing, and keeping my own deadlines and appointments straight is actually fun. Good luck to everyone!

  4. My biggest org challenge: getting dinner started and coordinating that with school pick ups at 5:00…a real challenge. And related to that, menu planning.

  5. TOYS! They come in, get “out grown”, broken, and lose their pieces so fast that I can’t possibly keep up!!! I throw out, give away, repair, search for missing pieces and containerize and the toys still win. I’m tired of stepping on them, listening to them, sorting them and receiving them!!! I think I’ll start a “No more toys” blog. HA! Just kidding about the blog. I need help… my 2 and 4 year old have messed up my brain!

  6. I need help with it all – 3 kids, their schedules, dr apts, meal plans – this is what I need to get it all in one place!

  7. I want this agenda!!! Biggest challenge for me is to find the time to do all the other things I’m suppose to while I’m on the computer. You know, like laundry, getting meals done, oh yeah, and getting the kids up and ready for school! I definitely think an agenda like this is called for!! Thanks!

  8. I have pressed my face against the glass looking at the elusive momagenda. *sigh* My biggest organizational challenge is balancing the school schedules and activities of my two older children (the itty bitty one is only 5 weeks) 🙂

  9. What a great giveaway! I think one thing I struggle with is keeping track of the various sports practices we need to attend.
    Merry Christmas!

  10. Wow these are so neat.. I would love to have it… my problem is I have this organizer with LITTLE tiny blocks for each day.. I write things over each other and then I cant even tell what they say!

  11. Boy do I need to get organized!! I am a working mom with a baby so this would be super to help me keep it together in the new year!! I twittered it as well!!

  12. My biggest challenge is getting organised in the first place! 🙂 I am one of the worst at organizing. I have a million things to do and I somehow never seem to do any of them! 😀

    Thanks for the great contest 🙂

  13. My biggest organizational challenge is keeping my focus and prioritizing when I have three kids under 3 constantly distracting me. Would love to have a Mom Agenda to help.

  14. My biggest organizational problem is balance! I’m in nursing school and balancing my time with the LOADS of homework, household chores, tests, hubby time, family time, church, etc…it gets overwhelming! 🙂

    This is so sweet of you to do this so often. Your blog is so fun. I love it.

  15. My biggest challenge is maintaining what has been organized – otherwise I don’t notice it until its a big annoying problem again. This may also be due to the fact that I feel like I’ve become a sermi-professional juggler (only an analogy) who has too many balls that have been tossed into the air and I am doing my very best to try to keep them from dropping to the ground.

    I’ve heard about the momAgenda and have looked at the site and actually wanted one but have never actually used one – I also don’t know anyone (outside of some of the blogs I’ve read) that uses one.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. My biggest organizational challenge is following carefully laid plans. I love to plan. Following these is where the challenge comes in. I’m convinced this would help me follow through.

  17. My biggest organizational challenge is life. We are an Air Force family that has lived in 9 houses, 5 states, and 1 country in the past 8 1/2 years! We have 3 kids that keep us busy, and my husband’s work schedule and duties are constantly changing. I would love to win the momAgenda, because I need something that will work for our family!

  18. My biggest organization challenge is doctor appointments! I have a disabled husband and also take care of my Mom who has several health problems. It means running to doctor appointments 2-3 times a week, then getting perscriptions picked up and going for tests etc. etc .etc! And lets not even think about changed appointments! I could really use some organization here! Thanks and happy holidays!

  19. life is my biggest organizational challenge, ha! ok, seriously, making sure that i have all the same stuff on the family planner and my personal planner

  20. Another GIVEAWAY. You rock! My biggest organizational challenge is finding time to file papers, or even knowing what to do with papers. Thus, my desk being piled up!

  21. I have a hard time remembering to write appointments on my calendar. It’s because the one I’ve had this year isn’t too user-friendly. Wednesday morning, the exterminator showed up for a 7 a.m. appointment that I had completely forgotten. He got an eye-full of scary; I’d just crawled out of bed.

  22. Hey, I would LOVE one of those! I saw them last year too but I haven’t jumped in yet. Ya think I could pay for shipping to Canada if I won it? 🙂

    Oh! My biggest challenge so far – keeping up with the online deadlines and projects… I think pen & paper is the best even for online stuff. I suppose I’m old fashioned that way.


  23. My biggest challenge is being on time for things, and that’s is with just 2 kids! Not to mention that I have another one due in a few days! Would be great to have to keep it all together!

  24. My biggest challenge? Keeping it all together. I can make lists and reminders like no one’s business, but keeping those lists and reminders organized get the best of me. There is also the pesky problem of not checking my lists and reminders. I’ve said it before, but it is all in the follow through.

  25. My biggest organizational challenge? Keeping all the kids schedules organized! And then their is hubs….

  26. I feel like since I had child number 3 that I am an organizational nightmare. Can’t remember important dates, appointments, things I need to do, etc. Some days I look at myself in the mirror and wonder what happened to the organizational dynamo that everybody used to envy…b/c she has left. I miss her.

  27. i can put a post-it down and the table and when i turn around, it multiplies into stacks of paper. happy holidays! thanks for one last surprise giveaway!
