Regular Readers will know that I am a self-confessed stationery addict. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being organised, of putting new pen to fresh, crisp white paper and writing your first list, the smell of a new notebook as you open it for the first time…
If you too love stationery. If you too are a busy Mama with a thousand and one jobs to do. If you too are trying to keep your household vaguely organised so you know when someone has a music class, or the Husband is working the late shift, then I would whole-heartedly recommend the Busy B stationery collection. I bought myself the Busy B Busy Life Diary for 2015, and I have been very impressed so far.
Busy B stationery is designed by Mums, for Mums (and busy Dads, busy Grandparents etc too!) Every product is developed with the aim to make family life simpler, better organised and more beautiful.
I was sent two items from the Busy B range (and one from the Baby B range, but I shall be reviewing that at a later date); the Busy B Family Calendar and the Busy B Christmas labels.
The Family Calendar is fantastic; with space for up to five names, and another column for birthdays! Each month has a pocket in the lower half of the calendar, which has proved incredibly useful for keeping appointment letters in and storing birthday cards for that month.
The calendar also comes with a sheet of useful stickers for occasions such as the doctor, days out and sleepovers!
The last page of the calendar is reserved for recycling dates, useful numbers and a 2016 calendar – fantastic for keeping track of life!
The Family Calendar from Busy B costs £9.99 (a bargain!) and is available to buy on the Busy B website.
I was also sent a book of Christmas labels, which have proved incredibly useful for labelling Christmas presents and making the envelopes of Christmas cards look pretty. The book contains 160 adhesive labels, and is available to buy on the Busy B website for only £4.99!
As you can see, I’ve been blown away by the Busy B range – each product is well thought out and ideal for busy family life!
