Making Me Time


I’ve always been a big list maker; there used to be satisfaction simply in jotting down the to-dos and seeing them checked off, but now lists are a necessity. I need to write ideas and to-dos down or they leave the building, as it were. And for fellow paper-oriented list makers and schedulers who need a little help getting their thoughts organized, there’s lobotoME.
Using a fresh and cheeky design approach, lobotoME’s product line includes brainiac note pads to help keep track of to-dos (for you, and requests for your partner), travel preparation, and meal planning. And lobotoME’s weekly planners (such as the momME planner, shown) offer a nifty, parallel pad approach. The 9 x 12 60-sheet pad provides the space to keep track of an impressive amount of weekly family information, including the typical spaces for appointments, birthdays, errands, and to-do’s, as well as space delegated to remind moms about personal time, exercise, and even your daily vitamin and water intake. Just fill in the info, tear off and fold a sheet, then tuck it into your purse or wallet and you’ll have your family’s information at your fingertips. And let’s hope that taking the time on Sunday to lay out the week’s plan will help you rearrange nonessentials and address the glaring blanks in the “me time” section.

Our new friends at lobotoME want to help Boston Mamas readers get organized so they can make "me time"; input BOSTON in the comment section on the order form and they will issue you a 10% credit.
