We had 46 entries in the contest to win a BusyBodyBook, and what entries they were. Honestly, I’m now wondering how some of you manage to get out of the house with your heads attached, after reading those. But on the up side, I now feel much more organized, myself. Heh.

We had originally offered to give away one academic-year and one calendar-year planner, but Joan Goldner was kind enough to both be my guest judge and to decide that two planners were simply not enough! Instead, she has selected two first place winners and two runners-up, all of whom will receive the planner of their choosing. Please join me in telling Joan that she is incredibly pretty in her generosity!

For those Want Not readers who’d still like to get a BBB but weren’t lucky enough to win one, you may want to bop on over to the BusyBodyBook site and make a purchase. Through Monday, June 4th, take 10% off your order with coupon code WNBBB. (Coupon code should be pasted in the comments section; final total will not reflect the discount, but it will be shown in the confirmation email you receive.)

And now… (drum roll, please!) the winners!

Our two runners-up both missed their own inductions. Whoops! Talk about placenta brain. Hopefully your new BusyBodyBooks will prevent any such problem in the future, ladies. Congratulations to liv and Kelly!

Our two first-place winners seemed the most in need of some definitive scheduling help. First we have Laura, who somehow manages to blame her Palm Pilot for the conception of her daughter, and then we have fran, who is in her sixth (and hopefully final) year of college. You earned those planners, ladies!

All four winners should decide which planner they’d like (check the BusyBodyBook site and pick the type and cover), then email me your picks and I will pass them along to Joan. She’ll get them mailed out to you and you’ll have no excuse to be disorganized ever again.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and a very special thank-you to Joan for her judging assistance and providing the prizes!


  1. I was rooting for Laura’s conception story–her experience is pretty hard to top!

  2. That is very cool of Joan. I would get one if I had more than myself to organize!

  3. oh wow! thanks — i’ll be sure to be to my next “birth”day on time! 😉

  4. I prepared an acceptance speech…but I, uh, seem to have misplaced it.

    Thanks! Really!

  5. Hi Ladies,
    Wish I could send you ALL a BBB – they REALLY help! And, btw,
    those five cool columns can be used for tracking anything – we have customers using them to track their bikini season diets and exercise, work projects, clients,meal planning and more. Just use your imagination!
    Thanks for entering – make sure you get to the O.R. on time!

  6. Thanks so much. Lord knows I can use this planner. Now maybe I wont forget my daughter at school when there is a half day. I did this not once but twice. We are collecting money for her theray. 🙂

  7. I got mine!!! I got mine!!! And now I have to start setting it up by getting all the birthdays and holidays entered.
