**lobotoME {goods to keep ME sane} Giveaway**




Live well. Be organized. Stay sane.

I am not the world's most organized person. I have tried traditional planners, and I just don't refer to them as often as I should. Until recently, my planner has been odd sheets of paper, sticky notes, and my personal favorite: the backs of envelopes. This actually worked, and might have gone on forever had I not realized that life with multiple kids is just going to get busier, and I really needed to simplify things by increasing my organizational skills.

The problem was finding something that works for me and that I would actually use. Thank goodness I found lobotoME! The momME weekly planner is exactly what I needed and more. The 9x12 size means that it is big enough to see and scribble on, but small enough to fold up in a bag or more importantly, to work as my new large mouse pad in its almost permanent spot on my desk. I use it so often, my real mouse pad just got in the way of quicker access!

The momME organizer has 60 week-long sheets; enough for a year, plus a few to lose or share! Each sheet lists the days of the weeks (blank, so start when you want), plus plenty of blank spaces with all sorts of useful labels (shopping list, exercise tracker, to do, space for the kids, etc) for you to write down and organize anything you may need to remember. I should also mention that lobotoME is Eco-friendly. They use recycled materials and the goods are made locally, so you are not only saving your sanity, you are helping to save the earth!



lobotoME also has some really useful notepads meant specifically for packing, grocery shopping, to do lists, and the necessary "Honey Do" list. No more searching for the list for your hubby - you have a notepad made especially for him. Click here to check out all of lobotoMe's incredibly useful products.

This is very cool! What a find Holly. The trip planning and Honey to Do note pads are awesome. The weekly planner would be such a life saver. If I don't win, I might have to put this on my Christmas list, wait...do they have one of those? =)

This is a great idea! I have to say, with two kids 14 months apart I need a little organization in my life!

3 kids, busy husband and a move on the horizon......need this

kendall said...

I've been through at least 10 planners trying to organize my life. It looks like this might do the trick.

Scott and Cindy said...

I definitely need this planner: I am due with my second little boy in 2 days - yes, 2 days - and my first littly guy is 19 months old. With a husband in Optometry School, it's definitely going to be hard to keep my sanity!!

Scott and Cindy said...

Oops, I forgot to leave my name on that previous post - it's Cindy!

Heidi said...

I have been looking for something like this...I too use the backs of envelopes all the time! Or just any scraps I find laying around. Then I am rummaging around in drawers and at the desk top or countertops looking for my one scrap paper with that important phone number on it! Or what about that grocery list I formed while I was thinking about it and used the envelope I had just opened which contained junk mail in it...well, I'm off to the grocery store but where is that list??
Aaaahhhh!! This is the story of my life!! Life with kids is always hectic. Anything to organize it is ALWAYS helpful!!

I am now pregnant with my second child, and have just realized that a huge wrench will be thrown into my schedule with the arrival of this new baby. I'm one of those people who love structure, and I foresee some chaos ahead!

Oh, what would it be like to be organized???

Lesha said...

I need a planner to keep from going crazy. I'm so darn disorganized and that is not good when you're juggling parenting and work. ~lol~

Cook Family said...

How would this help me keep sane? That implies that I am sane at this time which I am most definitely not! I lost my sanity the second my two little angels wedged their way into my already chaotic world. Choose me and help me to find sanity in the first place! Andrea

Nicole said...

The huge laundry basket full of papers would be thankful for an organizer. Also, I am always stressing out because I forget my appointments then remember at the last minute stressing me and my children out. I could really use this.

Kelly said...

Ok, I am SO a LIST person and this would be AWESOME to have! :D

Al, Ash & Family said...

Is a crazy 2 1/2 yr.old and a 4 month old who wants to be involved in everything enough reason to plead insanity? Please help keep me sane with a little help from the calendar. It would be nice to actually remember what I have going each day BEFORE I'm late or frazzled or absent out of forgetfulness:)

Kendra Meyers said...

Two children under two. Yikes.

You're reforming?

Brooke said...

I have seen this before and contemplated trying it. Things are a bit crazy here with 3 elementary kids in 3 different schools and keeping track of it all does not always happen :)

I feel like a chicken running with my head cut off! I need anything that might help!

I could write a novel about how insane my life is, but my life is too insane to take the time!

Julie said...

I actually LOVE organizing. I get a high from neat and orderly lists. I have yet to find the perfect calendar system though! I've tried to make my own, and have tried online versions, but the week at a glance is a must, and is sometimes hard to find the right format. I'm so excited to try this one. And besides, I love the name "Lobotome"!! Too cute!

oh, pick me!

What mom doesn't need this? This would be perfect for my family....what a great idea!
Thanks.

Kelly said...

Okay, so this is why I need it! I am a resident training to be an Emergency Medicine Physician, work 50 - 60 hours a week, juggle 2 busy kids (almost-4 and 10 months -- who currently has a double ear infection) with a husband who travels (next trip: China!) for work and still try to work in time to hug my kids and teach them a thing or too. My calendar is my sanity! And I think it's currently covered in baby food.

I am the least organized person I know. This organizer would help so much!
