I was so excited to be sent a tidy books Family Organiser and Notice Board (£54.95) to review, let’s just say I am renowned amongst my friends for being very scatty. I struggle to remember playdates and appointments. Us parents have so much to remember in my defence, pre-kids we just had to fend for ourselves now I have to remember a social calendar of two very busy little boys. They are always off to a friend’s house, the park or to a party.
This fabulous item gives me some hope of remembering where we should be and when! I can write notes up with the wipe clean pen, I can attach letters with the handy magnets or I can just hang up nicely the boys bags so I know where they are come the mad school rush! I really cannot think of something handier for a worn out parent to own, well aside from a magical tonic to make me less tired perhaps! I feel I can finally get my life in some kind of order now; it’s easy to see why a mum designed this item.
We picked the organiser in red but it also comes in blue, natural wood and white, so easy to co-ordinate it with the colours in your chosen room. I love the red it is bold and stylish although I have had to take pictures with my youngest showing it in his arms rather than attached to a wall; it will take pride and place in our kitchen as soon as it’s had a lick of paint. Currently we are still mid renovation and I would not want my lovely new organiser getting dusty before it finds its permanent residence. Youngest decided what would be on the organiser for the picture, but it does go to show how much space you have on there for lots of different things.
We tested the wipe clean capabilities of the board and it was as good as new with a quick wipe. So it’s a really useful way to write different notes depending what you need to remember at a particular time, then you can wipe them off and start afresh when you next need too.
The lipped shelf is a good place to put the things you always mislay and can never track down when you need them, school dinner money envelopes, your purse, even your mobile! I spent half an hour trying to find my mobile today before I unboxed my lovely organiser. So hopefully having it in my life should free up lots more time.
