The irony of it is I am such a list writer. I write lists for everything - heck I honestly even have a list that categorises my lists by topic.
But in my defense, like so many of us I am juggling wayyyyy too many balls at any given time.
Between trying to stay on top of work details, kids school details and dates, kids preschool dates, birthdays, play dates, Dr apps, Vet apps, sports events, sports training, birthday parties, social functions, deadlines, blog events, bills to pay, library book dues dates, video store due dates, prescription reminders, class mum responsibilities, kids soccer manager responsibilities blah blah blah blah is it no wonder I forget to pick a kid or 2 up from somewhere occasionally! Just joking - please don't call child welfare on me.
So why do some people seem more together than me? That is the question I have asked many a people and it seems I am doing it all wrong.
You see my lists are on separate pieces of paper stored around the house, in my desk, next to the bed and in my handbag. My daily calender is on the fridge AND in outlook AND on my i pad AND on my phone. It is no wonder I am so bloody confused.
The answer was I needed a good diary. Something that captures all the stuff I need to remember in the one place. Somewhere I can make lists to my hearts content and not lose those lists 10 minutes later.
Now I love me a good diary. There is something so exciting about writing for the first time in a fresh empty new crisp smelling diary. I get really kind of excited and giddy at the prospect of sitting down and filling out all the details in a new diary.
The problem is all the diaries I have had in the past have never really met all my needs, so I got bored with them and abandoned them.
About 2 months ago I started looking around for a new diary to get myself organised once and for all. I searched high and low and spent what was probably hours pouring over various websites - until I found this little gem from Inner-B
It has a space for everything here. It seriously is the most practical diary I have come across.
The diaries come in Pink, Green or Tiffany Blue.
And Guess what? You can win one of these too because the gorgeous gals at Inner-B have given me an extra green one to give to a lucky winner.
It is all wrapped up in its packaging just waiting for some lucky winner to start filling it out.
