The Organized Parent Review and Giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed.
Congratulations to Comment #6, Mrs. Brown, who is the Winner of the Giveaway!
 

I have some superty duperty products to share with you today from 4 different companies (all of which one lucky reader will get to try out themselves)!!
 
I'm going to start out with this fun Memo Mousepad by Galison.
I've told y'all before how much of a list gal I am. I can't tell you how many times I've been at the computer and needed to quickly write something down and didn't have a notepad in sight. For those instances, these Memo Mousepads are genius! The bottom is made out of some type of foam material so it stays in place on your desk, and each memo sheet is attached snug so you won't have to worry about the mouse getting caught up on the paper. It comes with 60 cute and stylish sheets. I have already used mine to make a couple library lists. It has been so handy!!
 
Another FANTASTIC notepad to share with you...the MEpad by LobotoME!!
I know what you are thinking...it looks exactly like an iPad. Pretty snazzy huh?? The best part, it is always connected, the batteries never run out, and all you need is a pen or pencil to use it. Is it possible for a notepad to be any more awesome? My oldest wrote his Christmas wish list on it today...He decided having it on cool MEpad paper would help me remember it better. (He's probably right!)
 
Check out these ingenious BubCaps from Paperclip Robot... 
 

Have you ever let your child play with your iPhone or iPad and after having them press the home button about a million times on accident, you finally just gave up and take it away? The BubCap takes away all the frustration since it makes your child unable to press the home button. See how it attaches to the iPhone below.


We don't have an iPhone or iPad in our house so I wasn't able to personally try them out (bummer!), but the product itself has made me want to switch to an iPhone so I can rid the frustrations of my kids pressing the home button.
 
The last couple products are going to help you with organization in your home. Check out this Stadium File by Smead.
 
This 12-pocket Stadium File is ideal for clearing clutter off your workspace. You can quickly and easily turn piles into files and see everything at a glance. I love how the pockets are tiered and fixed so your papers or folders don't fall to the bottom of the file.
 
I currently have a system of putting my mail and bills in a basket and once the basket gets overflowed I decide it's time to file and shred stuff. To be completely honest, it's a system that isn't working! My basket is constantly overflowed and it feels so treacherous to go through it all that I end up just leaving it most of the time. This 12-pocket Stadium File is going to be perfect to take the baskets place, and instead of just throwing my papers in a basket, I have a place to quickly organize them every day, instead of letting them overflow.
 
My kids also have homework folders that come home from school every Monday and get returned every Friday, so having a system like this to hold every day items like school work is perfect. You can even use it to organize things for your blog! I am really excited about how useful this product is going to be for me!
 
Look at these fun Fashion Folders also by Smead that would work easily in the 12-pocket Stadium File or alone. They are letter size and come in a package of 6 folders. The designs are whimsical and fun, as opposed to the every day, boring, manila folders.

Oh, I definitely would use the Memo Mousepad the most. I'm always writing things on scraps of paper or the back of something at the computer.
