Back to School Blue Sky Get Organized Giveaway

My new year’s resolutions kick in with the school year, not when the ball drops in Times Square. Every fall, I embrace a new organizational system, determined to make this the year that I keep better track of assignments, field trips, and sports practice. At the same time that I’m scouring the aisles of my local Staples for the kids’ folders and notebooks, I’m also searching for the perfect planner to magically get our lives in order. Although I live with my phone in my hand, whatever I enter into our electronic calendar inevitably disappears into the void of cyberspace. I like to see our lives laid out on paper, in the kitchen where our family’s heart beats.
Blue Sky Organization ProductsJust in time for back to school, I have a great prize pack to help you get your family organized. It’s a series of products from Blue Sky that are designed to make your life easier. I’ve been using them for a month now, and that panicky pit of my stomach feeling as we try to settle into a new routine before the baby arrives has yet to hit me.

Blue Sky seems to get how I live, grabbing little pieces of scrap paper wherever I can find them to jot down crucial information. They’ve created a mouse notepad you can doodle on and tear off lists of what to do, who to call, and what to buy. Their grocery list notepad is clearly divided into supermarket aisles like produce, dairy, frozen, and household. And they even have a door hanger notepad so you don’t have to run all the way back in to jot yourself a note.
Blue Sky Shopping AgendaMy favorite product is the Weekly/Monthly planner which doesn’t reduce my life to a tiny amount of space. It has room for both my professional goals and my children’s lives, gives me plenty of space to set monthly goals and make to do lists to banish my stress. I can easily see our month at a glance and delve into the madness of each day as well. Although it’s too big for my purse on a regular basis, it is stylish and I don’t mind having it lying on my desk.

I’m a fan of the Blue Sky line, and I’m excited to get to share it with one of you as well, to help you make your back to school stress vanish. You can also shop the collection for yourself at your local Target.

  1. School organization stresses me out! And like you, I prefer paper to digital any day. It doesn’t hurt when the paper is pretty too.

  2. I’m stressed. This year, I’ll have two kids in school and am worried about keeping track of all the dates, papers etc.

  3. Not being organized when school starts stresses me out! I am feeling it right now.
    Thanks for this giveaway!

  4. I’m not stressing about getting organized…I’d LOVE to be more organized! The part about school starting that I’m not looking forward to is my kiddos being gone 🙁

  5. Yes – it stresses me out too. School along with soccer, gymnastics, karate, etc is just too much to keep a handle on.

  6. Weirdly, I get excited about getting organized for the school year. To me it’s almost like a new year’s resolution or spring cleaning. I take the time to really start fresh and it feels good.

  7. I’ve always liked back to school season and I’m getting to experience it again with our 8 year old grandson living with us 🙂 It always feels like a fresh start to me!

  8. Probably a bit strange, but the school year doesn’t stress me out at all! It actually calms me. My kids & I use their planners and my computer calendar and we stay on track! But summer vacation…that’s always a different story…that makes me crazy trying to keep up with their various activities week to week!

  9. I don’t usually get stressed out when the school year starts…although the calendar does fill up quickly with activities. Thanks!
