Blue Sky Home Series planning products review and giveaway




Wow, summer is already halfway gone, and it won't be long before we go back to the daily school routine and all the craziness of homework, playdates, soccer practice and dance class.

Having my online calendar synched to my phone is a lifesaver, but now that the kids are getting older, I want them to start taking responsibility for their own schedules. At the very least, I want them to know what activities they have for the day, week and month! I'm not about to get all 3 of them smart phones, so paper calendars and planners and notes still very much a part of our lives.

Blue Sky, makers of stylish planning and business products, recognizes the role that paper-based organizing products still play in family organization -- which is why they've created the new Blue Sky Home Series, a collection of calendar-based organizational products for modern households. The series offers 14 products, with designs from Susy Jack* Contemporary Paper, all under $10. It's available at Target stores nationwide.

I was given a few of the items from the Blue Sky Home Series product line to review, and I love their clean design (each product comes in a warm pink or cool blue color tone so you can pick one that doesn't clash with your decor).


My kids love the Door Notes, with its unique door hang design. My husband frequently writes notes to himself and tapes them up on the cereal cabinet door, so with these Door Notes all he has to do is hang the note on the cabinet knob!



Their mouse pad is a multi-tasker, just like a mom! It doubles as a tear-off note pad. I'm always searching for notepads to jot things down on, so this is ideal for me.



I really like all the products with magnetic backings (Activity Tracker Board, Family Weekly Board, Grocery Checklist Pad) because they stick on our fridge, which is where everyone ends up looking anyway.


I like that their Weekly / Monthly planner starts in July and ends in June -- it's perfect for the schoolyear -- but it doesn't work for me since it doesn't hang on the wall and it's too big for my purse. But that's the beauty of this Blue Sky Home Series. You can just pick the products that make sense for you and your lifestyle.
