Moms On the Move Need Essentials Organizer

I love the idea of being organized, but with a family running in all directions — it's not always a reality. The smidgen of downtime I have is on the bus to work, which does lil good when my magnetic page planner is at home hanging on the fridge.

I've tried to go tech and load our appointments, pick-ups and drop-offs, and party dates into my Blackberry, but there's something so satisfying about putting pen to paper. I was thrilled when Amy Keroes of Mommy Trackd sent me over her latest invention, MOM Essentials: A One-Stop Organizer for Moms on the Move ($15).

The small book can be slipped into my laptop bag and has weekly calendar sheets, to-do lists, space to remember website sign-ons and jot down your family's take-out orders. The tear-off pages bring a sense of satisfaction when you toss them into the recycle bin. Additionally there's a page of Post-its ready for sticking, which for me means an easy way to leave my husband messages on the front door and the dashboard of our car.

This looks a lot like the one I have except mine has daily slots instead of weekly. It's a great tool.

i have a magnetic dry erase calendar that sticks to the fridge with all of the families things on it. each person has their own color pen used for their things. it is fabulous and everyone always knows what is going on. kids love it too because they can see what is happening, when they have hot lunch, piano lessons and most importantly how many days left until their bdays, halloween or any other "important" event.
