Truly Mom

This giveaway is now closed with 224 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner - Baba!

Hey moms - it's almost 2009. As if you didn't know. It's time to start getting organized if you aren't already. Life is busy. Truly Mom is here to help.

I love their Girl's Favorite planner. It's on sale now for only $29.95. What a steal. It has everything I need to stay on task while doing it in style. Just look at it! It's beautiful!

There is a pullout month to month, a phone number and address book, a pen, reminder stickers and four different note pads. It's like a mini portable desk. I can't think of anything else it needs. It's a wonderful planner for a busy mom.

Truly Mom would like to get you organized for the New Year! They are generously giving one of my lucky readers a Black Patent Leather Planner. So chic!

  11. I love how they put the emphasis on organizing yourself as a means of clearing away the excess so you can focus on what's really important in life. I hate to say it, but I'm occasionally guilty of getting a little lost in the mundane, unimportant things.

  66. "accomplished yet changed women" I really like that. Change is what makes us or breaks us!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love the statement that every mom goes through a change at some point...granted it may not be cancer or some huge traumatic event, but we all have those life changing moments at some point. I also love their motto "Live life, embrace life, every day" because I think that as mom's sometimes we get so caught up in just trying to get the day over with that we forget to take time to embrace it! Thank you so much for the chance to win this gorgeous planner! I could definitely use it! (I love that it doesn't have all the stuff that most planners come with ...i really don't need to know what time it is in Istanbul on an average day ;) )!

  90. I feel the same way- sometimes when life feels overwhelming you need something ot simple to help you to feel back in control and that you are moving forward. I love the idea of friends getting together and creating something that helped them all even thought hey were having different struggles in their lives.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I like that their planners are mom-specific instead of being filled with a whole bunch of stuff we wouldn't use.

    I would love any of their planners, but the black patent is the prettiest and sleekest.
