momAgenda | Helping Moms Manage Their Chaos

Everyone that needs some help in organizing their own personal chaos needs a good day planner. Really though, we Mom’s need more than that – we juggle a lot in just one day. We need a life-planner. And that is exactly what I think of the Desktop Day Planner by momAgenda. The company was founded by Nina Restieri, a busy mom of 4 and a former ad executive. At that time, she noticed that there were more planners out there geared towards brides-to-be than Moms. And, unlike brides, the planning and tackling doesn’t stop after midnight. Nina researched and developed her own line of planners based around the life of Moms in 2005. Today, momAgenda has a diverse selection of products that help us Moms organize our daily lives – from family to career
to home and social life too.

I got the 2010 {17 Month} myAgenda Desktop planner, which has also won an award. I chose the tickled pink color because I knew I would also be incorporating blog-stuff into the schedule {and hey, I have 3 girls is our way of life!} Yet there are many other great stain-resistant colors as well. Yet immediately I notice how classy it looks, a satin pink hard bound book with silver lettering – oh yes, it made me smile at the thought of organizing! But, the beautiful outer shell must pack some hard-core material to take on the role of motherhood, right? That’s why I immediately dove right in and studied what it had to offer on the inside.


For me, I use the full monthly calendars at the beginning of the book, to schedule blog-related schedules. The next section is the weekly calendar section, which I use for appointments, parties and everything-kid related. Since this is where I need the most space to write, it works perfectly for me. And, I can see the week at a glance so that I can be prepared in advance. YET, The thing I like about this planner is that you can organize your own life into the pages how you see fit. There isn’t a ton of ‘write this here’ which can sometimes be a waste of space if it doesn’t apply to you. This planner can be customized and personalized
to suit your scheduling needs!

The Desktop planner also has space for music, fashion, fitness, websites, entertaining resources, vacation planning, finances and more. I also like all the blank lined pages at the end, and jot down everything that would usually end up on sticky notes and lost. And, it has 2 satin bookmarks built-in, which is fantastic for finding those pages that you are always referring to. It may seem simple, but this has been a fantastic feature
for this planner, for me!
Since I tend to juggle so much at once, having my entire life written all together is almost disorganized for me. I like that I can have work, kids and household, and everything else all in separate areas so that nothing gets overlooked. I am able to effectively fit all of the information I need to, very easily in the
2010 momAgenda desktop planner.

  8. With twins in K, my husband and I have started that "busy" season, where there are constant opportunities for our children and us. As I'm in my day to day with my 21mo. old in tow, I'm constantly making Dr's appts., hair appts, play dates, extracurricular, physical therapy appts for our daughter, etc. I always have some sort of planner with me, to jot things down and try to make the most of our time together. After browsing the site, I would definately do the Mini-Daily planner. I have to have it with me. If I don't right it down immediately, it "ain't gettin' done!" Cute products! Great gift ideas!

  9. as a lover of all things that organize, i want it all! but if i had to pick one thing it would be the all in one folio! perfect for a busy mom!

  10. I think the momAgenda Wall Calendar could help organize my chaos since both my daughter (hopefully) and I could write in it so we could both know what's upcoming for each of us

  11. With my kids, all the friends' kids, an ex who acts like a bigger kid than the kids, neices, and then life outside my family, I am so unorganized time wise. I would be so much bettter at time management and planning if I had one. Please bless me by letting me test this out for you. I would not even care what color. Any color would be great. melissar428@yahoo.com

  12. I'd definitely use the personal portfolio…one place to keep everything to do with family, work, outings, etc., etc., etc…!!!sierratangoromeo@live.com

  19. School Years by momAgenda; it would be a very lovely gift for my sister [inlaw] to use with my nephew. He started school in october for the first time so making keepsakes would be cute for when he's older. [Might buy that actually lol]

  27. The Grocery List pad would certainly help me manage my chaos! I'm forever forgetting what I need when I get to the store, and if I had a preprinted list where I could check off items as I run out, then take the list with me when I go shopping, I wouldn't have to worry about forgetting to buy anything!
