More Time Moms!
Yeah, I totally want to be part of that club, don’t you?
Well, as Moms and Dads, being a parent or caregiver is surely a daunting task. After meal planning, lunch making, chauffeuring and scheduling around extra-curricular activities, you’ll find that sometimes you can get totally in over your head.
When I had the chance to review a couple items from More Time Moms, I was super excited to see if I could get not only my home life kicked back into gear but, my professional life as well.

More Time Moms Fridge Calendar.
I had the chance to review this amazing fridge calendar that has totally helped me organized everything that I need in my family life and work life. I’ve used it the last month or so and just began our December month.
I find that it’s so much easier to take an hour a month to sit down and write down our month’s plans and commitments. I found that I would forget a lot of things like appointments because I would lose the reminder card or just simply didn’t write it down.
Since we have a smaller family (a family of 4) and with basically only 3 of us communicating–having a calendar on the fridge is the perfect way to communicate. It’s a central location where we can write down events and appointments as they come or in advance.
What we loved the most is the stickers that you can add to your entries, it livens up your calendar and gives it a much more personal touch. I also found that I can easily stick post-it’s onto the calendar to move events that are flexible and could be moved around.
INSIDE YOU WILL FIND:
- 16 very happy pages
- NEW! 357 More Time Moms appointment & reminder stickers
- NEW! 189 star stickers to track chores & challenges
- Strong magnets to hold the calendar to the fridge
- Bigger than average squares 1.75″ x 2.5″
- MTM recipes, Inspirational quotes, Moon phases, To-do lists
- Fits both standard and side by side refrigerators
- High quality opaque erasable paper
Plan It, Write It, Stick To It.
So far, we have written down extra-curriculars, Dentist appointments, family movie nights, special events and recitals and we are just getting started for the month of December.
The last month or so, we’ve been able to stick to all of our responsibilities because they have been neatly scheduled on the fridge.
The magnets stick extremely well, the calendar has not slipped or budged since I put it up. I also love that the animation inside always has a personal touch and great reminders for parents with special quotes and pictures that are very appropriate.
The More Time Moms Family Organizer is the ultimate tool to get you there. One of the things that I love the most is that it starts in September, since this is when the most organization and planning is needed.
This family planner has the biggest squares, 2.1″x 3.5″, to give you plenty of room to write, the best stickers to remind you of important events, and a pocket for bills and loose paperwork. I especially love the stickers, it takes away the lull of a simple calendar and brings it to life.
Plenty of Room.
The squares definitely give you plenty of room to write what you need to. The top is where you can write accomplishments, achievements and notes. I am excited to get my December month scheduled out and this month is definitely going to be very busy.
For someone who calls herself messily-organized, this calendar has allowed me to take just a little bit of time out of my schedule to organize my home life and spend less time shuffling around in stress when I’m not organized.
Luckily, I have a very organized husband and he helps me out with the calendar as well. Let’s put it this way, things have definitely looked up in our home!

Be a More Time Parent!
The Family Organizer retails for $15.99 and the Fridge Calendar retails for $16.99. To me, that is incredibly affordable. I’ve purchased other planners for the same price or more and since they all lacked in space and a template, they didn’t even get used. I love how More Time Moms lays it all out for you, it inspires you to get organized.
