Three of our mommies reviewed the BusyBodyBooks and here is what they had to say:
Whitney, mother of 2, also reviewed the 2009-2010 Academic Organizer:
We have a busy family. My husband and I both work full time and we have two children ages 10 months and almost 3 years old. We have lots of appointments between doctors, dentists and the occasional eye appointment too, and even music classes for my daughter. So when I received the BusyBodyBook I was thrilled. Not only does it have 5 columns for all members of my family, it has tear-out To Do lists that I use for grocery shopping, and a place for addresses, special dates, and it even a reminded me of daylight savings time.
My life has been so much more organized since using the BusyBodyBook. I use to write appointments on random pieces of paper then stuff them in my diaper bag, never to be found again. Now I just keep the BusyBodyBook with me everywhere I go so I will never forget, be late, or way too early to a special appointment again. Not to mention I have been able to get gifts accordingly since I now do not have to be reminded the day before a birthday. The BusyBodyBook is a wonderful organizer for the whole family. It is such a reasonable price and has very modern designs in a compact 7" by 10" size to fit perfect in your purse or diaper bag. I will be buying one every year from now on. Thanks BusyBodyBook for putting my family back on track to organization!
Jennifer, mother of 3, reviewed the 2009-2010 Academic Organizer:
I received The BusyBodyBook to review 2 weeks ago and love it! The BusyBodyBook is a must have have for busy moms or even students. It has 5 columns that you can use for numerous things. I use mine for each member of my family for their appointments, play dates, etc. It can also be used for school subjects, meal planning, business, time management or even diet and fitness. The front of the book has emergency information, a page that shows the months at a glance until 2011 and important holidays and what days they land on for 2009 and 2010. It also has two pages for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. There are also plenty of pages for notes, pages for takeout and restaurant information, contact information for important people, tear out shopping lists and two pockets on the inside of the front and back cover to keep important papers. The BusyBodyBook is very durable with a plastic cover on the front and the back, it also comes in different cute designs. Before using this book, I was so unorganized. I would miss appointments, forget about my kids school functions and even forget to pay a bill. The BusyBodyBook has made my life so much easier. For such a small book, it contains everything you need to stay organized. I have tried numerous planners in the past and this has been my absolute favorite!
Terese, guest reviewer & mother of 3, reviewed the 2009 Jan-Dec Organizer:
When Anna came to me with the idea of reviewing a date book/day planner, I must admit I was THRILLED! Ahh, something to get my life organized that I can take with me! Now don’t get me wrong, I have tried other date books, but there was never enough room to jot down a family of five’s busy schedule, so I resorted to my calendar that hung on my refrigerator. Well, that usually didn’t work well either, because by the time I was out of the house, I had either forgot to check the calendar or forgot everything that was on it for the day!
Well, relief is here! The BusyBodyBook (we will call it the BBB in this review okay?) is everything you need to stay organized in one not too big, not too small just perfect book! Memorable yearly events fit perfect in the first few pages of the BBB., so it doesn’t clog up your weekly pages (which probably wouldn’t be a problem anyways!) Then move on to your weekly (and main) scheduling pages. Five blocks of space are provided for each day, perfect for my family of five! I assigned each person in our family a block and was able to write down their schedules, unlike with a calendar, where everyone’s schedule has to fit in one block of space. You are also provided space with in that weeks spread for your “to doodles” which could be groceries or other items you may need to get that week. This page also gives you ideas or reminders to do that week (I.e the week of Thanksgiving it reminds you to take your turkey out on Tuesday night and put it in the fridge to defrost!) At the end of the calendar year, you are given pages with each month listed with lines underneath for the next year. I personally used this space to write down what days off my kids have from school for the rest of the school year. I can now easily transfer this when I get my 2010 BBB! In the back of the BBB you can write down the phone numbers and addresses of important people (friends, family, doctors etc.) but don’t use this space for your favorite restaurants information, because there is in a whole other section for that, and did I mention that besides the restaurant section for phone numbers and addresses, there is a take out section too? YAY! No more carrying a phone book with me!
Well, I must say that this book contains a lot, but that is not all! There are also perforated tear out to do lists in the back, write down those things you need to do and take it with you with out the BBB if you want! A notes section is also provided, a perfect place to jot down that poem you just made up, that Christmas list you just got called with, or that funny joke you just heard! Well before I end up writing a book about the BBB, I’ll add in the last perfect little detail to this amazing book. On the inside of the covers are pockets, now I used these the carry my kids school picture envelopes, bills to be paid, and a few pictures. All in all I must say this, even though the BusyBodyBook is jam packed with everything you need to get rid of the chaos of events packed in your mind and on your fridge, it is the perfect size to take on the go, not too big not too small, it fits perfectly in my purse or the diaper bag and is VERY sturdy! I highly recommend this book to any mom, woman on the go, or even dad that wants to stay sane with a clear mind (and clean fridge door).
