We have previously shared the importance of finding a calendar that works for your family, including a review by Heather of her favorite organizer. Amy Knapp’s Family Organizer is a great option because it includes space for all your appointments, to-do lists, menu planning and a shopping list. The Family Organizer is now a family of its own, including a wall calendar, a variety of portable planners and the new In-Focus digital organizer—the next generation of organizing.
Amy Knapp has generously offered a Family Organizer and In-Focus digital organizer for our launch celebration. We are giving away one of each. To be entered into the giveaway, leave a comment here and tell us what you think will most appear on the pages of your new organizer. You can also earn additional entries by blogging or tweeting about this giveaway (be sure to leave a separate comment with the link to each additional entry).
The contest runs from July 28th to August 1st at 11:59pm. One winner will be notified by email on August 2nd (as selected by Random.org) and must reply with their mailing address within 48 hours or a new winner will be chosen. Open only to residents of the U.S. and cannot be shipped to PO boxes.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of our giveaways to enter—updated daily!

My kids’ ballet classes will be the things that appear most often. They have multiple classes that don’t start at the same time, and it’s hard to keep straight!
Keeping track of recurring and family events is what I need an organizer for! Between church events, family get-togethers, and lessons, I sometimes feel so disorganized, not sure what is when and what I’m supposed to bring. This woudl be great- thanks for the giveaway!
Birthdays,my son’s work and college classes, my daughter’s school events, etc.
Debbi R says
I hope what will appear most is menus for each night. That is a goal anyway.
Priya Bradfield says
My kids’ ballet classes and girl scout activies and my PTA events!
Furlough days, daycare parties, family trips, visits from family, daily chores, monthly home maintenance tasks… What WOULDN’T go in here??
Menu plans – I try to plan several weeks out so I know what I need to pull out of the freezer or start in the crockpot before going to work.
My husband’s soccer games.
A number of things- my husband’s work schedule, my meetings or school events, my daughter’s events, birthdays, appointments, etc!
Kids schedule and to do lists!
Leticia Latinovich says
I can think of no one who more desperately needs an organizer more them me! Between my job, our local non-profit schedule, my support group, my 4 childrens school, scouting, sports, and club schedules, I have never been very organized about keeping it all straight. This organizer may be just the ticket to get my families lives all organized in one location!
I think that a lot of menu planning would be on my pages. I also like to write down the dates that my coupons expire so I make sure I make the most of my money. 🙂 I’d need to write down my husband’s work schedule, too, along with class cancellations and other extra-curriculars.
Vickie Riddle says
Birthday Reminders, and son’s school info.
Crystal Arcand (3Stairs) says
With two kids on two campuses, my calendar will be full of school meetings and activities!
I soooooooo need something like this! I would use it to combine my meal plans and to-do lists into one place! Am forever writing things down on slips of paper and then they are randomly placed around the house (and out of sight!).
Sandy Myers says
I think my husbands dr appointments (injured soldier) and my daughters dance and gymnastics classes will be the entries that fill up our calendar. Not to mention Family Get-Togethers!!
I would love to see the menus for a week (planned out for easy shopping) but I will see the kids activities/schedule on the pages!!
What wouldn’t be written in this organizer with a kid who’s starting college and coming home weekends and holidays to work, not to mention a teenager, a husband who works 2 jobs, etc???
Meal plans (maybe), birthdays, and other activities!
dr appointments will probably appear often. i have a newborn, a toddler, a preschooler and a preteen. between well child immunization appointments and everyone getting sick in the winter, we are pretty friendly with our doctor 🙂
Gus and Clay's Mom says
school events and kid activities, for sure
allison w. says
what family wouldnt want (i guess i should say NEED) one?! im big into menu planning and list making.
Marilyn Stober says
Keeping track of my grandchildren’s sporting events and my meetings.
Probably my work schedule and doctor appointments along with sale items and the last day to purchase them. Things I tend to always forget!
Daily activities like story time and play dates, as well as doctor’s and dentist appointments could definitely use an organizer around here!
Mine would have my doctor’s appts. and my blog posts/reviews/giveaways. Sometimes hard to keep up with them all.
Paula H says
Mine would have our homeschooling schedule, the days menu, my husband’s work schedule and any other dates that I need to remember.
Erin Lowmaster says
Mine would have my doctor’s specialist visits and book review priorities.
