Get Buttoned Up (w/giveaway)

Sharing is caring!

What if I told you there is an amazingly awesome product line out there that would change your world forever?

The name sums up the idea…. get buttoned up.

The products solve your issues…. organizing every category in your life!

It makes me giddy! And {baby} Matthew loves it too- organizing his busy day of crayons, macaroni and sneaking toys from his big brothers. Which one is the biggest priority…. sneaking toys of course!

There are three items I want to tell you about.

CatchUp Pad– Love it (insert singy song voice here)! As a mom of a 14,000 children (ok, really there are only 5) there is always a list of things we are out of. As a wife who helps run the family air conditioning business there are deposits to make, phone calls to return and invoices to pay. With two kids in school there are tutoring schedules and after school activities to keep up with. There are soccer games, practices and birthday parties. There is an email inbox so full I think it just might implode. I’ll stop there because I am about to have a panic attack…. but wait, I have my Catch Up Pad. Track first things first…. Important Messages, Alerts!, Kids News, even Hugs and Kisses- all on one sheet!

Would You Pad– Part of running a household requires me to hand things off. Not that I am any good at that, sometimes I think mom’s live in the mindset ‘I’ll just do it myself’- life seems easier that way. Sometimes we feel like it would take just as much time to explain what we need… so we just do it ourselves before the panic attack sets in. But Buttoned Up has made it ridiculously easy to request help with the Would You Pad. If you need to remind your husband to drop off the dry cleaning, maybe a child wants to remind mom to pickup something special from the store, or if you feel like you’re the switchboard for Grand Central Station and you need to remind your son to call his friend about a group school project- just reach for the Would You Pad. Call, Email, Pick Up, Drop Off… all with a please and a thank you!

Birthday Book– Hallelujah! Lenny and I both come from huge families. I am the oldest of five. He is the baby of six. (Interesting relationship as you can imagine. He is the baby and I am the mother hen- he wears the pants… I just tell him which pair.) My point is, there are so many brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and tons of people in between with birthdays that I can never keep up! I just wait for the birthday party invitations to come in the mail to remind me I need to purchase a gift. But guess what? On the eighth day, Buttoned Up created the Birthday Book! Could life be any sweeter? A tidy book that is tabbed January – December, spacious room for writing, and it is the perfect size to carry in your purse or diaper bag without getting in the way. You need this! You really do!

Think these are cool? So does {baby} Matthew.

  1. Oh, how wonderful this would be! My mind is mush!! When I was 20 (many moons ago), I worked with a lady who was in her late 40's. She would have post-it notes everywhere – on her desk, on her checkbook, key ring…EVERYWHERE! I would tease her all the time about it. She told me, you just wait…one day you will understand!!! Well, I do now!!

  2. This would help me greatly because I seriously am very forgetful! I just remembered today that I have to send out Thank You cards from an event 3 weeks ago!

    Love these! As a student, mother of three busy boys 3 and under, and wife of a wonderful soldier who unfortunately often deploys I NEED the would you to help me stay on top of life! It's quite the ordeal just to get to the grocery store with the boys, and want to make the most of the trip by 'A' getting everything I need and 'B' making sure I stop at all the places I need to go before going home! Thanks for this chance, hope I win 🙂

  11. Not Just A Mommy! says:

    I so need a real organizer; I'm always writing things on post it notes, then folding them up into my pocket. Not cool when the post its are pink and you wash the white pants they are in.

  12. oh these look great! I find that if I don't write it down it most likely will not get done these days. These products would really come in handy the next few weeks when my calendar is SO FULL!! So scared I am going to drop the ball on something.
    Trying to remember to …just…breathe…
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I would love to win these, especially the birthday book. I have such good intentions about remembering birthdays, but always end up missing someones. :o( I love the site's Tips of the Day! I can use all the reminders I can get!

    Well I love this tip on their home page :
    It is time to get your outside Buttoned Up for summer. If you plant flowerbeds in a diamond pattern rather than straight rows, they’ll look fuller faster.
