MOManizer: Great Solution for any mom! {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Congratulations to the winner, MaddyRu! Thanks to everyone for entering and check back soon for more great giveaways and articles!

73 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Okay, it's no secret that I love my BlackBerry! But, sometimes it's so nice to see all the lists, things you need, calendar, etc. on paper, all together, all at once. This is where the MOManizer by Cindy at Polka Dot Monkey comes in handy. What is a MOManizer you ask? It's a full-size, stylish binder organizer designed specifically for moms, by a mom. On the front and back inside cover there is a space for sticky notes; a pocket for coupons, cards, etc.; an at-a-glance monthly calendar; and a clip for other important items. Clipped in the rings are full page versions of a to-do list (sectioned into e-mails, calls, errands, projects, misc., and at-a-glance weekly meals), weekly schedule, weekly meal plan, and grocery list (sectioned by category for easy shopping!). All pages are printed on cardstock and, since they are in a binder, can easily be removed (and put back too...a feature not common with many organizers!). All the things mom needs to schedule each week can be taken care of with this beautiful organizer!



I had an opportunity to try out the MOManizer and LOVE it! First of all, as I said above, it's beautiful! It has a padded fabric cover on the outside, and a nice coordinating lining on the inside. It can be made in a variety of fabrics and all are very pretty (the giveaway winner will win the one pictured!). The next feature I love is that it is a full-size binder that fits standard paper size (8.5 x 11). This makes it so the organizer can easily be added to, if you think of something else you'd like to have in there (not sure what that would be!), and pages can be removed. This is especially great for the grocery list, which you will definitely need to remove and take to the store. Finally, the lists that are included are very relevant for moms, are organized nicely into categories, and are separated by easy to read dividers. And...Polka Dot Monkey offers refills of all of the lists! I don't know about you, but I can't stand to use something that doesn't have refills! Another note on the lists...I particularly love that the weekly schedule is not dated (you write in the date at the top) and is organized into morning, afternoon, and evening rather than specific times. I know on dated weekly calendars there I times waste a whole page because I haven't gotten around to even making a calendar for the week! And on hour by hour calendars there are inevitably chunks of time that are rarely or never scheduled events. Thus, the morning, afternoon, evening format works great for me! I can write in my own times and there is no wasted space or paper. I have thoroughly enjoyed using the MOManizer and hope you'll check it out for yourself!

  17. I would love to win this momanizer, and I SO need it in my life! With a busy two-year old and an Etsy business that's becoming busier by the day, I could really use this to record her events (music class, playgroup, storytime, etc.), as well as my things (items to ship, supplies needed at store, etc.), dinner recipes, coupons, etc. I'm a tad anal-retentive, so I love the fact that everything would be organized and in one place for me!

  27. I totally love the look of this organizer. I could use a little organization with four kids, homeschooling and an Etsy shop. After visiting the shop I am wishing I would have had one of the diaper carriers. My last one is almost potty trained but will remember these for gift ideas. Very cute!

  43. The organizer is my favorite, but the Jeremiah - Boys Intial Onesie or T-shirt is cute too.

    I've been looking for something that was more mom friendly. The stores mostly carry appointment books or business planners, which don't help much trying to keep 5 kids' schedules on track.

    PS. I tried to post this a few seconds ago and got an error message, if it went through anyway, I'm sorry for the double post.

  45. The onesie with the appliqued tie is absolutely adorable, but my little guys outgrew that long ago. I absolutely love the MOManizer. I have MS, so I try to write EVERYTHING down, but I have so many post it notes I can't seem to keep them in the same spot all the time. If I had something like this, I could stay organized with dr's appts, baseball practices & games, so I won't miss anything anymore!!!! My boys would love you for it, since mom's a bit forgetful now.
