How to be Organized: Using Tools from Buttoned Up (Giveaway and Promotion Code)

Sharing is caring!

Do you find yourself asking how do I get organized? Buttoned Up is another one of those companies I have fallen in love with. They have fun, practical tools for organizing your life. I have featured their mommy solutions on my site before.

Pretty Neat

They have this new book out called Pretty Neat. Part of getting organized is about letting go of perfection. Um, that is me.The book is full of tips and pointers as well as interviews from real moms!

The Editor of Glamour magazine, Cindi Leive, who is a working mom of two, shares her tips on how to say no.

Agnes Perozzi, married stay-at-home mom of three, gives tips on developing a family schedule.

Ann Malone Smith, single working mom of two little ones, gives tips on wrangling children’s toys.

And I love this interview by a mom of five and how she sticks to an evening routine to help her morning routine run smoothly.


This book is a must read.

Buttoned Up Coupons

What about a booklet full of your best intentions? Hand out these organizational coupons to someone you  love.

What about giving a coupon to one of your children that promises they will take out the trash without being asked.

Or, I will get along with ___ for one week without being asked.

How about this one, I will do my homework without being asked.

I think Buttoned Up has been spying on my family.

Password Log

Do you have a bazillion passwords to keep up with? What about usernames? Am I the only person in the world that cannot keep up with all of this?

The Password Log holds up to 100 usernames and passwords and even offers a space for taking notes so you can keep record of when passwords were changed. It is small and compact and fits perfectly in your purse.

Greeting Stash

Before I had so many children, I loved spending time at the card shop. I had a card box that I filed all my greeting cards in by topic.

Now. Um, that is just a distant memory. I am lucky if I have a greeting card on hand when someone has a b-day, an anniversary, or just because. With the greeting card stash, cards are always on hand.
