2008, The Year I Will Get Organized

***WINNER PICKED 1/21 WITH RANDOM.ORG*** ***CONGRATULATIONS, #3- Brooke!!!***

I would use the What to Do When pad with my husband after the kids are asleep. That would TOTALLY help us not fight.


This is what's going to help me on my quest to become a better, more organized Naomi in 2008:

Isn't it pretty? It's the Whomi Hidden Agenda, a compact planner that features a system so ingenious, I think even I will be able to use it for more than a couple of weeks. I have a bad habit of being all gung-ho around New Year's and then falling off the wagon come springtime, but I do believe the Whomi system has the potential to make an anal-retentive supermommy out of me. It basically consists of two booklets, housed in a checkbook-like fashion. The first booklet features a monthly grid, so you look at two months worth at a time when it's open. It gives you the requisite places to keep track of contacts alphabetically but also, smartly, places to list birthdays by month and jot down "things to remember" like movies, books, restaurants, etc., which I am sure would be fantastic at the library or video store.



The bottom booklet, the Whomi weekly grid, is divided into two sections also. The upper half is for your personal schedule and the bottom half has three color-coded sections that you can attribute however you like. Moms can track all the kids, bosses can track different employees, salespeople can track different accounts, students can track classes or activities, etc. For me, it would probably be Bob/Roo/Jasper, although at this point Jasper's schedule consists mainly of breastfeed, sleep, spit-up, poop so I don't think his section will get much action.



The Clarity Agenda features the same ingenious booklet system as the Hidden Agenda, just housed in a clear vinyl case that closes with a snap instead of the flashy metallic pink pleather zipper clutch. I like to think it makes people wonder if I have a secret nightlife when I pull it out. Of the diaper bag. Umm, probably not, but if it makes me feel frisky, that's cool, right? Whomi also makes a family wall calendar I'd love to try that uses the same color-coded system as the agendas. It looks superbly useful, much better than the kitty cat one I opted for that was half off at the pet food store.



By some fickle twist of fate, I actually won a Clarity Agenda from Chief Family Officer that almost collided in the mail with my Hidden Agenda. So, in the interest of Blogger karma, I am going to pass it on.

  1. I love the Whomi's What to do pad, that looks like the best list making pad ever! Man, the Whomi Clarity Agenda looks small enough to basically go everywhere with me. I can put it in my purse for all my meetings and not have to write things on scraps of paper and bring them home to put on the calendar!

  6. This would be really neat to have! I've been looking at several different planner designs and I'm trying to decide on one! I like that this one has the section at the bottom for 3 additional schedules - 1 for each of my 3 girls! I also LOVE the What To Do When notes - they are great!

  8. I like the Hidden Agenda for the simple fact that it zippers completely closed. I have a tendancy to toss things into a diaper bag and loose them. Having something like this that zippers closed would keep me from having to dig around in the diaper bag for stuff.
    I would use the Clarity Agenda just to get our days organized. Homeschooling six kids gets very crazy sometimes. I can always use a little organizational help!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  33. My favorite is the clarity agenda. Its so small I can throw it in my purse and take it with me. Since I dont have any kids I get those three portions all to myself! I would use one for school homework, another to schedule in time for exercising and the last to plan dinner for my boyfriend and I. I would love to win this because I am very unorganized and having something as clear and as pretty as this would definetly get me organized. My email is cristallie333@gmail.com
