Mama's Notebooks -- Review and Giveaway, Two Winners, Ends 1/18/14

Notebooks... planners... how does one go day-to-day without one in these busy days?

Truthfully, they are so much more than just dates in a book. They are records -- moments in time and space. Something to look back on and relive an event.

I found Mama's Notebooks whilst searching for planners that were specific to my needs. I'm so glad that I did!

About Mama's Notebooks
Mama's Notebooks brings you helpful notebooks to organize your family life. All of our notebooks are designed from the ground up by a Mom for other Moms, and feature simple and effective charts, lists, and ideas to help your family life run more smoothly! Our notebooks are spiral bound for your convenience.

Mama's Notebooks are available in four styles:

1. The original Mama's Notebook: An easy, flexible, and efficient way to organize your life. In one glance, you can coordinate your meal plan with the whole day’s events and tasks, and there’s always ample room to take notes on the things that matter to you most! Unlike other planners, you can start up Mama’s Notebook on any week of the year, and you can skip weeks as needed. The back section of the planner provides you with easy reference sheets to help you schedule and shop efficiently.

2. The Budget Notebook: The Budget Notebook by Mama's Notebooks is designed to help you keep a household budget that is simple, easy, and accurate. It features charts for everything you’ll need to get your budget under control, as well as a Notes section at the back with ample room for planning, organizing, writing reminder and to-do lists, and tallying up sums. You can buy this notebook for an academic year budget (September-August) or a calendar year budget (January-December).

And the two notebooks I received for review:

3. The New Baby Notebook. This notebook is for my oldest daughter, Michelle, as she welcomes our first grandchild (a girl!) in March. I love it -- it will be not only a great keepsake, but an important record that can be taken to the pediatrician's office as well. I admit it, I didn't write down notes about feeding, diapers, vitamins... it never occurred to me. I wish I had. I like knowing that Michelle will be able to track everything.

This notebook is designed to help you in your first six weeks with your baby. The New Baby Notebook provides you with one place to keep track of your family’s needs. In the front of the book, you can record all of your important phone numbers so that you don’t have to go searching for them when you need them. Organized by weeks, this notebook provides a simple daily calendar, meal planner, and to do list alongside a daily feeding & diaper record, as well as a checklist for taking care of you. You can open the notebook and see your entire week at a glance! In the back, there is a place to take notes on baby’s sleep as well as reference sheets to fill in for your freezer meal inventory, a standard shopping list, go to meals and snacks, a list of books and movies for when you need them, and a thank you card tracker. The meal references are designed to help you streamline easy meal planning on the calendar pages. Of course, there is also plenty of room for notes.

4. The Knit-Crochet Notebook. Oh yes, this one is mine! I crochet. But I've never had a notebook specific to my tracking needs before. I can now keep track of every project, from yarn requirements to measurements. It's a true blessing! There is a measurement guide, yarn reference, gauge tracker, Knitting needles / Crochet hook check list... it's brilliant!

This notebook will help you to organize your thoughts, customizations, and designs for knit and crochet projects. It features project pages for each project, an easy-reference table of contents at the beginning to help you keep track of individual projects, a hook and needle tracker, a project wish list, a guide to easy measuring with charts to keep measurements for the people you make things for, and a standard yarn weight reference—all in one notebook! This spiral bound notebook is easy to flip through and has graph paper to help you with your designs.

I highly recommend Mama's Notebooks for all of your household and hobby needs.
