Since 2003 I have been using More Time Moms Family Organizer Calendar and LOVE IT!!! Besides the large daily squares, which I LOVE, my most important feature is the spiral bound edge. I keep my calendar on the kitchen counter and it is handy for the entire family to see what is going on and can easily flip it over to see the rest of the month. I won't buy a calendar unless it has a SPIRAL binding! Your calendar is the only one that I have found (and believe me I have looked hard) to have both the large squares and spiral binding! THANK YOU!!! I love the extra blank spaces too, so I can make notes that don't necessarily pertain to a specific date. If you can have blank space at the top and bottom of each month that's even better. I keep my calendars and it is so handy to be able to refer back to things. I hope the family organizer calendar is available FOREVER!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my calendar. I call you every year and talk to Joanne or her son. Not only is it a great product, you are great people. Now, I see you are doing this fabulous project in Africa. Way to go. You are taking your success and building upon it in a way that is inspiring.
God Bless you and NO, I will NOT buy someone else's calendar. Using a calendar to organize home life/children, etc. leads to organization and efficiency in business. My kids and husband use my calendar daily because I plug them into it. The stickers, the pictures at the top (now in color -- I used to use colored pencils and color it in when I was on hold.....), the seasonal suggestions, all of it, is well thought out and helpful.
Just wanted to write and give you my sincere thanks. I know you get tons of correspondence, but it is always important to know that the efforts you make have wider significance than you can see.
Just got my new Family Organizer calendar today and I absolutely love it! I fell in love with this calendar a few years ago, but opted to go with a different one last year and regretted it every day. I'm delighted to see all my favourite features – the inspirational quotes, the recipes, the big writing spaces and to do lists. It's just awesome. And I love the new stickers. I work part time outside the home. I'm a freelance writer. AND I'm a mom to
two busy school aged children. Keeping track of their schedule, my schedules, and hubby's can be such a chore, but this calendar makes it a delight. Thanks for the great tool for keeping my family organized and me sane!
Moved to tears...
We have been using your family organizer for about 7 years now. I was not able to obtain one anywhere that I called or went to in Tucson. I did not know how I was going to function without it. I then found your website and this problem was forever solved. As the mother of 4 sons, the last who are twins and graduating in May 2008. I sat down at the computer to place my order and burst into tears. How could time have gone by so quickly?
Everyone in the family knows that we put everything down in this organizer and we are all on the same page. It is with a heavy heart that I am placing this order. Looking on the brighter side I will be able to put their college schedule and basketball games, homecomings, vacations and fun stuff in the next one that I get.
Thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much for thinking of all the moms, dads and children out there who have used this organizer. It has been something that we are not able to live without. I think that I will get one for each of the boys next year and tuck the special letter that we write to them as a surprise on their first day of college.
Hello to everyone at More Time Moms!
Busy family schedules
Enjoy? I am a mother of six, a ten year old, a five year old, and four 1 year olds. Being that they were premature, we had a ton of doctors appts. all over the place for them this past year. Also, my 10 and 5 year olds had their lives too! From soccer and basketball practice and games to CCD and dance, and school events! I don't know what we would have done without your calendar! It got us where we needed to be when we needed to be there! I've had other Mom calendars, but I love this one the best!!! Thank you for such a great product!!
I have been using the MTM's Calendar for several years. I have always struggled with organization and usually have 2 or 3 calendars/planners going
at any given time. I had even bought an expensive family member color coordinated "planning system" for next year from the local office supply store. When I went online today to order my MTM for 2008, I saw all of your fabulous products - the agenda that matches the MTM format, the shopping lists, cookbook, etc. - and I am so thrilled! Now, it is easy to use ONE format and have all of my planners coordinate so that I don't have to keep switching from one thing to the next. WHEW! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am taking my new "planning system" back to the store today and I have ordered one of everything (I think!) from you. I have a teenage daughter and your Girlfriend's calendar seems to be very appropriate for her busy lifestyle! I might even order the refrigerator calendar so that when last minute things come up, each family member can add it to that on their own and I can transfer it as we adjust our schedules!! Thank you again, you have truly outdone yourselves!
"The More Time Moms Family Organizer is the best investment we have made in a long time! Our whole family can look and understand what is going on each day. With 2 busy young children with babysitters and two parents working, life gets hectic."
I have been using the Family Organizer Wall Calendar for five years. I can't imagine my life without it!!!! With four very busy kids, there is a lot to write down. The calendar has plenty of room for activities, tracking exercise (for me), and meal planning. I LOVE IT!!!!!
I LOVE my Family Organizer calendar! I echo all the sentiments posted by your other customers and wanted to add my own. Not only am I a wife and mom of a 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter, I am also a Professional Organizer, specializing in residential organizing. When people ask me to help them with time management, the first thing I tell them is to get a wall calendar with the largest boxes they can find, then assign a pen color to each member of the family. The Family Organizer is the perfect solution! And the stickers it comes with add an extra element of fun, not to mention it's easy to see at a glance what is going on that day/week/month. Thank you for such a reliable, and enjoyable, product!
Makes a Great Gift
Thanks Joanne - we love the product. It is a Christmas morning (not to mention EVERY morning) must have. My wife loves it and I think it's a great gift.
I love your product. I buy one every year for me and my daughter. I have purchased the Family Organizer for house warming gifts, it is the best. Thank you for the chance to donate to Kenya.
Just a quick note to say thanks for another great calendar! This is the 7th year I have purchased one and I'm always so excited to receive it! As a mom of 2 very busy grade school kids and a new baby on the way I'm so thankful for the size and set up of thiswonderful art piece! I have it hanging on my kitchen wall where I can see it everyday and keep everything running smoothly. I love that it was created for moms by moms...it really shows. I tell everyone I can to order one for themselves. Again, thanks and I look forward to using my new calendar!
"Thank you for your help and your calendar. I always considered myself organized, but I was just kidding myself until I put this calendar into use. Thank you for saving my life!"
A few years ago my sister-in-law presented me with one of your AMAZING calendars as a Christmas gift - from that moment on we were hooked. I will NEVER use another calendar again. It is incredible how something that should be so simple to design, is messed up by so many other calendar providers. I can't pin-point just one thing you have done right, because everything about the Family Organizer is right - it is one of those things we just can't do without in our home. I enjoy sitting down and updating it. I am thrilled to check it each morning to plan our day. It sounds silly - but it's as if you are part of the family. I liken it to our "Life's on Fire, Cooking for the Rushed" cook-book, and my monthly trips to Supperworks - it has improved the management and organization of our busy lives for the better. I save each year in a drawer because we also like to look back on years past - we track everything in them. The pocket at the back is priceless - it holds school reminders and birthday invitations. Need to double-check what the parents names are of the birthday party you are about to drop the kids off at? Just check the folder - it's all right there! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! And God bless you for the work you are now doing in Africa!
I love your calendar... have been getting it since our four kids were little...
I just wanted to drop your company a line to let you know that I look forward to your calendar every year!!! Let me tell you this calendar has every thing - I use this for my job - which I am a dayhome provider or 6-7 children, and I also use it for my daily life - If we lose this calendar we will lose everything!!! I love the Quotes and the recipes and try most of them and they are GREAT!!!!! ... AWESOME CALENDAR.
I first found the Family Organizer in our local mall right around Christmas time and have searched for it every year since. It is undeniably the best calendar out there ! I love the big squares that allow me to pencil in more than one appointment or important note for that day. (No more squeezing it in the margins) My daughter and I love the stickers! The big pocket in the back is a great place to store her favorite drawings.
Room for everything and everyone
I have been using this calendar for about 5 years or so and since I starting using this calendar I have numerous family members and friends that have also started buying it as well. This calendar has everything - enough space to write out daily events, b-days, special days - and the stickers are great - my daughter can not wait to put all the b-day stickers on our family birthdays and her special days at school. Please keep this calendar going - I just LOVE IT!!!
"I've used your calendar for the last three or four years and I want to tell you how much I love it! I really like how it starts in September, which as every Mom knows this is when the year really begins... Finally enough room for all my family's activities."
Please send me another of your fabulous "More Time Moms" calendars for 2009. I'm not a mom - except to my 5 animals - but I use your extraordinary calendar for my own pet care business as well as my personal business. I find it invaluable and frankly can't remember how I functioned before I found your calendar. I've been using it since 2005 and will continue to use it even if I am no longer in business.
This isn't just a great MOM Calendar, it is also a great DAD Calendar too. Great for organizing ones life when it is speeding along as it does. Big days and easy reading from a distance (for us older Dads) I have been using the Family Organizer for at least 5 years now.
I am buying your calendar now already for a number of years and I am very pleased with the product. I always order two, one for the house and don't laugh now and one for the barn. We breed south african boer goats and the room this calendar has for notes is ideal. Also I love the stickers. We use it down there to keep track of breeding dates etc. I do keep all things on file, but to have the room to just jot it down when needed makes it just ideal.
This is a great calendar! It's not only great for Mom's but for people with busy lifestyles. Even before we had our daughter we used the Family Organizer everyday. My husband's business trips were "school trips" and "Sunday Football days" were sports :-) It's a great way to organize your busy life style. Now that we have a little one we still use if faithfully and continue to buy one every year! Thank you!
Family stickers that parents and kids appreciate.
My calendar arrived today and I'm once again really pleased with it. This will be my fifth year and I can't imagine life without it. My children are now 5 and almost 3 and they take a real interest in the little pictures and what is happening in the big picture, of course they eagerly await the special stickers for birthdays and parties. The new stickers are terrific and my husband is thrilled he can stake out time for him. We like the changes to the calendar format too, the bolder lines make the individual days stand out more and we love the different colours for the months. So once again thank you for the heart of my kitchen and my home.
I know you must see hundreds of thank you's every day and well here is another one. I've been using your Family Organizer for 5 years now and I just wouldn't be able to function without it. I have 5 children ages between 5 and 13, all playing soccer and hockey and various other activities. My family calendar is FULL. My children each have their own colour code and the stickers are so helpful.
Once again thanks for the best calendar ever. I couldn't function without it.
Empty nesters love it too!
I love your calendar... have been getting it since our four kids were little...
Hi Joanne et Al; Just a note to let you know how much we rely on our More Time Moms Family Organizer...we couldn't survive without it...AND WE DON'T HAVE YOUNGSTERS @ HOME ANYMORE! However, my wife and I are very busy with many things...including medical appointments, meetings of various sorts, and my "Gigs" as an entertainer for Senior Citizens.... It's the best purchase, and maybe the most important one we make every August. My wife is an elementary school teacher (getting ready to retire in June)...and our "New Year" has always started in September (I am a retired educator, too.) So the 16 month calendar is a real benefit. Thanks too for the stickers... makes all those events, family stuff and general activity a lot easier to spot. And the big squares are great for these OLD eyes! ...We're looking forward to the next organizer.
Thank you so much for your wonderful product. I have been a loyal customer for many years and even though my children are all grown up now and in university, I still find your day planner and calendar invaluable. Heaven only knows how I would keep everything organized, now that I have moved on to organizing all the many other events in my husband and my life besides child rearing.
Keep up the awesome work.
I'm mother of four grown kids, and two grand kids. My husband is retired. I have been buying your calendar every year. For the past two years I have given one to my daughter, who is busy with two little boys, a part-time job, and a husband who works 12-hour shifts.
Recommending to friends: the finest compliment.
Thank you so much Teresa. This is one of the reasons that I love ordering from smaller companies, because of the personal touches. I absolutely love the calendar and because I have 12 week old twins I have so many appointments etc so already need extra stickers. I have recommended this calendar to many of my friends and they love it as well.
I am so glad I was introduced to the Family Organizer about 7 years ago. I have my pile of used calendars in my closet, so that I can refer back for past appointments and phone numbers and past special days, where I have forgotten to record the information.
Conveniently located on the web
Thank you for providing one of the best tools for better living we have ever seen. I started out getting this for my wife several years ago at a local book store - She loves it and we all use it daily. Now that I have found your web site I don't have to worry about finding her favorite Christmas gift!
I have been using MTM Family Organizer for the past 4 years and I just ordered my 2010 edition. I started using the calendar by chance when I saw it at a nearby mall before Christmas. The next year I went to look for it - I was so disappointed that the kiosk in the mall no longer carried it! Luckily I noticed the website address on my current organizer and was thrilled to see such an easy order process. Now I just order a new one online every year around Halloween. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful calendar - with 3 kids it makes it so easy to stay organized!!!
Excellent calendar & organizer. I use it year round for my Rental & Bed & Bath business... I don't know where the last one came from but from now on I will be ordering one every year by October for the business... Perfect amount of space on each date for all the details I need per booking.... Thank you..
Other calendars just don't measure up
I bought your Family Calendar online in the summer of last year (2009) on the recommendation of a client. I LOVE this calendar! I LOVE that the pages are matte as they easy to write on (and easy to erase!) I love the large size so it is easy to find among the piles of papers.
Your calendar is my absolute favourite. I even made space for it in my new house - had our cabinet guy build a special bulletin board and find just the right space for it in our design. The men didn't understand during our house planning process the importance of a good, accessible calendar to a busy mother! :)
Bonjour!!! J'adore utiliser le calendrier More Time Moms! Et malgré le fait que nous ayons un grand de 18 ans à la maison, cela ne demande pas moins d'organisation pour la famille. Ce calendrier permet de voir les semaines d'un coup d'oeil (et nous prouve que nous sommes bien occupés!!!). Ma mère nous avait donné l'agenda familial il y a 5 ans et depuis, nous ne voudrions plus nous en passer! Cela nous aide vraiment à organiser la vie familiale!
|LITTLE HELPER: PERSONAL ORGANIZER FOR MOMS|
Hello Trish, I have been a customer of yours for several years now and LOVE your products. I have tried everything else and nothing is as good as Mom's Little Helper for daily organizing. The size is perfect and I love all the extra space for lists. There's only one more thing that would make it utterly perfect. I would love it if you could incorporate a little pocket somewhere. Maybe on the inside of the back cover for those invitations your kid hands you while you are out and about or the friend's phone number that your kid got at school. Even without the little pocket though, your product is the best!
I am loving the Little Helper, too. The Little Helper has all sorts of really handy forms, such as "Vacation Plans"-- which I have never seen in any other planner, and it's terrific!!-- and "Bills to Pay". What would be really helpful (to me and hopefully other Moms & Dads, too) would be to attach a "pocket" to the inside back cover. That would allow me to "carry around" any holiday plane tickets or schedules, or sealed envelopes with bills inside. I know that suggestions from customers are more "food for thought" for you. I really appreciate how thoughtful, friendly, and what great customer service you give.... It's great that you operate from my home province: "la belle province." I wish you, your family and loved ones, and "More Time Moms" the best in 2008, thanks again!
Just wanted you to know how much I love my "little helper" as it has everything in it I could possibly need to manage my family of 5 (3 active girls). I also wish there was a full blank lined page at the end of each month as I use that for my monthly grocery list.
"Thank you, That is the best "little idea" you have had in a long time. I have purchased your calendar for more years than I can remember and this little book is great...Thanks again for coming up with another great idea for moms."
"First of all let me say that I love your first edition. I have only been using it for 2 weeks, but it has helped me finally to get organized. I no longer have 5 lists on the go. Looking forward to your second edition."
"Hi this is Kim calling from Burton, New Brunswick. I am just calling to let you know that I just received my new More Time Moms Little Helper agenda. I just got it today by courier and I think it is fantastic. It looks like the best one yet, it has just the right amount of every thing. I write big and there is enough space for everything. I am so excited to get out my pens and my highlighters and get writing things in there.
I have been using the planner for the last three years and I love it! I especially like the 2009-10 year anniversary design. It's a little more reserved and classy looking..great job!
For me, every August it is a time to get myself and my kids ready for a new school year and it is the perfect opportunity to get organized. I have been buying your Family Organizer for several years now and I can not live without it! Your calendar has it's special place in my kitchen where everyone can quickly glance at it and know just where they need to be. I love the large places where I can write everything down and the pocket in the back holds so many important papers, and invitations etc... Since returning back to work I have also relied heavily on the "Little Helper" It lives in my purse and follows me everywhere I go.
Thank you for providing my family with such terrific calendars and agendas!
I purchased one of your "Mom's Agenda 2010" planners while searching for a Canadian-made calendar at Chapters. I am impressed on a daily basis with your product and although I'm not normally one to take the time to provide feedback regarding products I felt I had to write to compliment you.
|GIRLFRIENDS LIFELINE: TEEN ORGANIZER SCHOOL CALENDAR|
"I love my Girlfriends Calendar. It keeps me organized because it has lots of space and great stickers to keep track of my soccer games, fun school activities, movie nights, baby sitting jobs and all of my friends birthdays. Plus it looks cool hanging on my wall"
This calendar is totally funky. I love it! I've been using your Girlfriend's Lifeline calendar all year. It helps me so much. I've been so organized I have time to hang around wih my friends and read a book. This is by far the best organizer I ever had. The things I loved were: Extra-extra space for each day, Funky stickers, Girlfriend hang out ideas, Doodle space, Reminders, Cool sayings, Funky cartoons.
I started using the girlfriends calendar when I was 13 and still use it at age 21. It was fun for me because I would watch my mom organize our whole family's schedule on her family organizer and it encouraged me to do the same with my girlfriends organizer. All through out high school and college it has been great for organizing my studies, work schedule and time with my friends. It is so much easier to be proactive and get things done when I can see it every morning on my wall. The stickers are a life saver! Not only are they fun, but very practical for itemizing events in my schedule. Great for girls of all ages!!!
"This calendar is so helpful for organizing my schedule. It's easier to visualize when papers are due, when I will be volunteering, and when my nights out will be. As a student, this calendar is my life."
I have been using your calendar for 5 years now! I love it! It's my big "splurge" for myself every school year! Thanks for an amazing product! If I didn't have the money for this product, I would find it somehow. It's that good!
New this year, I have bought 2 student calendars for my 2 middle schoolers. They love my Family Organizer, but now want their own to place in their rooms to stay organized. Thank you for providing my family with such terrific calendars and agendas!
|MORE TIME COOKS: MEAL PLANNING COOKBOOK|
I was learning to cook for the first time in my life and just about every recipe was, as you said, healthy, delicious, and well-received by all, child and adult alike. Grocery shopping has become swift and lacking in stress, and we have kept clear of the over-packaged, over-processed food aisle now for many years, thanks to your planner. Fresh vegetables and fruit now overload the grocery cart, while boxes and bottles are minority dwellers there.
The last word goes to your salad dressings: the day we started your planner, we said good-bye to bottled dressings forever. I had no idea how quick a great fresh dressing could be, and now nothing less than fresh basil, lemon juice, great olive oil and some varied spices will do. My favourite kitchen tool has become, consequently, my small whisk, which is flourished every night over the salad bowl as it is set to the table.
I am not exaggerating when I say that you changed my family's lives, for the better, healthier, and tastier. We have used and reused this little book, and each meal is never disappointing. I've never found anything that compares to the standards of freshness, taste and variety, ease of preparation, and especially health-producing selections that appear in your book. Please, please write another one!
"I received More Time Cooks as a birthday present this summer and it is the best thing that ever happened to our family. Instead of standing over the freezer each night, wondering what to have for supper, I am now so well organized that even the kids know how to start the evening meal. The way you have organized the file is quick and easy and the shopping list is a godsend!... What fun! I have also found it cheaper to feed my family of four and there is a lot less waste. Cheers to a job well done."
"Somewhere over the years my kitchen got away from me and everyone was miserable at mealtime, especially me. Within three days of using your system, my husband actually grabbed my hand and kissed it...Bless you for a wonderful product."
"I love my MTM Cooks. Great meals with so little effort - and they're good for us too! My son (14 months) loves to eat and has eagerly devoured each meal. I just shred his portion and he is getting so much more nutritional value than if he was eating the "traditional" foods that children his age are fed. Thank you for such a great product. I'm looking forward to the new year so that my Little Helper can also simplify life! Thanks for your assistance in making me a happier Mom with more time on her hands than she knows what to do with."
"It is wonderful, the food is great - but it's the organization that really gives you a break."
"It's all in the cards...mealtime salvation for busy people."
"A great idea whose time has come."
"More Time Cooks lives up to their billing...could be the culinary Trivial pursuit of the 1990's."
"Hi, My photographer sister and I made a video about my personal experience with your cookbook, which I bought in 2010 and I love it still! I was a single mom with school-aged kids and attending university when I discovered this cookbook and app combo. Thank you for being a pioneer in this area — you met my need to make my mom purse lighter by allowing me to go paperless :) Take a look"
|FRIDGE NOTES / MEMO FRIGO MAGNETIC CALENDAR|
Hi there Joanne;
I was given the Fridge Notes Calendar as a Christmas gift last year and I LOVE it!
I usually received your Family Organizer Wall Calendar, which is also awesome; but now I have a little 2 year old who loves to be involved with everything Mommy and Daddy do. Having said that, at the end of each month we plan out for the next and she places all of the stickers in their respectful places. She loves the stickers and she loves the involvement of household planning.
I find the large squares just perfect for writing down everything from chores to appointments and bill payments. I love that it's right there on the fridge so there is no way to miss it.
In fact recently I have started using it for something totally new. If my little girl does something which is worth rewarding, good listening, use of manners, etc. she gets to place a special sticker (Tinker Bell stickers) on the square of the day. If she gets so many in a day we get an extra story at bedtime or maybe an extra special dessert.
Needless to say I absolutely LOVE this product.. (not to mention all of the others) It makes my daily life much more organized and the whole family can be involved and have fun at the same time.
I went on your website today for the first time, and I wanted to add my positive review for others to read:
