Editorial Reviews

Review

We've not met a mama who is not tied in knots trying to keep her household from dissolving into mayhem. This BusyBodyBook Personal & Family GRID Organizer might be the holy grail of grids. It's a week at a glance, but the trick is that it's got five columns, side by side, so you can keep five lives organized at once. It's spiral-bound and includes a book mark/ruler, pockets for tucking in odd bits, perforated to-do lists (we love these), and a weekly doodle page for scribbles. No wonder the BusyBodyBook won awards from a slew of folks Parenting magazine and iparenting media, among them who understand the pitfalls of keeping a family afloat. --Chicago Tribue, Barbara Mahaney, Jan 2011

Review

We all have our own needs and wants when it comes to choosing a planner. My preferences include: De-emphasis of time slots, as I use my electronic calendar for scheduling appointments Weekly grid format for planning my day-to-day activities Space for a master to-do list for the week Monthly pages for planning blog posts Space to jot dates for the following year Coil bound, so it will lie flat on my desk, whether open or closed Esthetically pleasing Good quality paper and construction When I opened my review copy of the 2011 BusyBodyBook Personal & Family Grid Organizer, I was thrilled to see that it has every one of the above features. Furthermore, it has pockets inside the front and back covers to hold any loose papers, lots of space for additional notes, a couple of pages to record key contact information, and even detachable pages for additional lists. I especially like the heavy plastic cover which not only protects the attractive inner cover but makes it easy to find the cover when the book is folded open to an inside page. As shown above, each weekly page has five columns which you can use in whatever way works for the way you organize your life. I m using mine for: Organized Assistant business, client work, personal, home, and social. That may change as the year unfolds, but since they re unlabeled, I ll be able to make that transition easily should the need arise. --The Organized Assistant - Janet Barclay, Jan 2011

About the Author

When Joan Goldner became a mom she joined the ranks of mothers everywhere who struggle to keep up with demands of work and family life. She had been using her own hand-written, column format of tracking and coordinating her time-sensitive business projects and when she first began leaving childcare instructions for the babysitter or her husband, she just added another column, named for her son Jake. And thus the award-winning BusyBodyBook Weekly GRID format was born. Originally from New York City, Joan now resides with her family in New Jersey, where she brings her love of people, business and organization to the BusyBodyBook Weekly GRID line of products.

This calendar was the most functional one I have ever found, allowing me to keep track of my schedule as well as that of my 3 kids. The fact that the company is going out of business sends me in to a tailspin, calendar wise :) I have found NOTHING that is arranged in a grid format, and since this is apparently a patented product I don't know that anyone will come up with something remotely similar. Please, Joan, reconsider!

WILL NEVER USE ANOTHER PLANNER AGAIN! Used this product for 2 years now and trust me, it is a MUST have for a busy family. It has a place for every member of my family so even with 2 full-time working parents working crazy schedules and kids sports/school activities, we never miss an event! Thanks BBB for FINALLY coming up with an awesome planner that I could NOT live without!

I have been using this product, along with the wall calendar for four years. I just logged on to order my 2012-2013 and cannot find it anywhere. This is by far the best calendar I have used to manage our family of 4! Please update me on the status of Joan Goldner and the BusyBodyBook.

I think I found a possible replacement for the BusyBodyBook. I've been using BBB for many years and I'm devoted to it. I was very distressed to find out that they went out of business. After looking around for a similar product, the best I could do was Orange Circle Planner (http://www.amazon.com/Orange-Circle-Planner-Berry-31504/dp/B0081W36LY/ref=sr_1_6?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1351362971&sr=1-6). The orientation is horizontal instead of vertical, but the weekly grid is very similar -- and similarly flexible. I haven't used it yet, but I wanted to share because I understand the people here who are casting about for something to replace BBB for 2013.

Has this really been discontinued? I have been using this for years and with three kids and a very chaotic life, it made life soooo much more organized for me! Why would they do away with such a great product?????

I have never been able to stick to using a planner until I found my busy body book last year. I use it everyday, all day. The format is so handy. Can't go wrong with this purchase.

I love this book! It always made me happy to get to the end of the old one and get the new one ordered. I loved receiving it in the mail...it was a fresh start to a new school year. Please bring it back! There is nothing out there that is as good as BBB. Faithful user since 2004.2012 BusyBodyBook Personal & Family Weekly GRID Organizer - Blueberry

Has address book in back, tear-able 'to-do' lists, and each page has its own space for a list opposite the agenda. I have used this agenda for the past 4 years and love it.
