It's nearing the end of the year and time to be thinking about getting yourself a new personal organizer for 2008. It's also a great time to be thinking of your New Year's resolutions. If you're anything like me, one thing that tops my list every year is to "be more organized". Seems like such an easy thing to do come January, but by the end of the year I wonder what happened. My intentions were good, I started out strong, then it all just falls apart and I'm left feeling like I don't know who's got to be where when, forgetting appointments and leaving the grocery without half the things on the list I forgot to bring with me.
This year's going to be different. With the Busy Body Book to help me stay on top of things, I can keep track of everyone's schedule. Each page is a week at-a-glance, with columns for up to 5 different family members, 5 different school subjects (perfect for college students), or 5 different business projects/clients, making it great for working moms too! This will be very helpful for scheduling appointments so I know what overlaps when and can remember who has to be where. That's not all. On the left hand page, there's room for a to-do list, shopping list or just general reminders or "to-doodles". Plus, the Busy Body Book throws in little hints and tips such as upcoming tax day, a long weekend, or when to start thinking "back to school". There's even a reminder for calling the babysitter for New Year's Eve (hint: it's the first week of December, so get ready to start making your calls soon)!
The Busy Body Book includes a space for planning appointments for the following year so you can stay organized during transition between books. There's also plenty of space for notes to self, tear out to-do lists (fill them out and stick them in the handy pocket on the inner flap to keep them close by), as well as important names and addresses to remember. The very front of the book contains monthly columns to list birthdays, anniversaries and other memorable dates. At just $16.95, this is one organizer I can't afford to be without. I look forward to using the Busy Body Book in 2008, and to having some help with sticking to my New Year's resolutions!
