No food today. My brain is still in vacation mode. And we’re still eating leftovers. But you know I love you and have to give you something, even during these lazy hazy crazy days of, uh, winter. Since 2011 is just a few days away, I thought we could talk calendars. Sound good? Good.
I’m pretty picky about my calendar/organizer. I like to be able to see a week at a time but still have enough space to write lots of stuff on each day. And it has to be PAPER. I’ve tried Palm Pilots, iPhones, online calendars, you name it. As techy as my life may be, I rely on good old pen and paper for tracking my day to day calendar. I had a Franklin Covey organizer years ago, but it was really just more than I needed. So, I generally browse the bookstore each December hoping to find something semi-decent.
About a year ago, I received a Busy Body Book at a blogging event. Of course I approached it with skepticism, like I do all calendars. But I hadn’t bought a planner yet for 2010, so I figured I’d give it a try.
I LOVE IT. Here’s why:
- The grid layout is super handy
- I can see a week at a time and there’s plenty of room for notes/lists/appointments/etc
- The cover design is super cute and has a nice, thick plastic cover, making it nice and sturdy
- It’s spiral bound
- There’s a bookmark that you can move from week to week
A few weeks ago I realized I was almost out of calendar! ACK! I emailed the owner of the company (wonderful Joan), begged for a few copies (1 for me, 3 for you), and a few days later my beautiful new Busy Body Book showed up on my doorstep. And I’m happy and organized once again!
And, yes, I did say I drummed up three copies for you! This post is a giveaway, just like the title says! Three of you lucky people will each receive your own Busy Body Book…and you’ll get to choose the cover style! Like all my giveaways, just leave a comment on this post, one per person. You have until Midnight PT on Monday, January 3 to add your comment. Your comment can be anything, but this might be a fun chance to take sides on the paper versus electronic calendar debate. I feel a battle coming on! The randomly-selected winners will be announced on January 4.
