Carolina Pad Review, coupon and giveaway!

Recently Carolina Pad sent me a set of organizational products to use and write about. I was so excited when they came! It had all sorts of funny goodies in it! Here is what they sent to me and what you can win!
  • 1-subject notebook
  • Ideal book
  • Personal Book
  • 3-ring binder
  • tab dividers
  • file folders
  • 13 pocket expandable folder
  • coupon folder
  • 19 month planner
  • Stick-on notes/flags


I am really excited to have these great things right in the middle of moving!

The planner is helping me to remember what day things are being done in the new house and it is helping me remember all the different appointments my family has, such as which child gets which dose of flu vaccine and when.

The 13 pocket expandable folder is where I am keeping all the important papers. I was keeping them in a file cabinet, but can you imagine 5' me trying to carry a file cabinet out of the car in case we had to evacuate due to a hurricane? Not very pratical. So inside holds our insuance papers, shot records, titles to the vehicles and house, anything else I think is important and an updated picture of my kids. Should anything happen to them, I won't be deprately trying to rip a picture out of the scrapbook I made for them. (Who am I kidding, with 2 kids under 2 there is no completed scrapbook, wishful thinking.)

The 3 ring binder is becoming our Home Manegement Notebook. The purpose of this notebook is basically to be command central. Once my kids get older and busier it will really help to keep us running smoothly. Inside will contain our menu for the week, my cleaning schedule (trying really hard to stay on top of the toddler messes), a monthly calendar, important numbers (Grandma and the insurance guy), the daily routine (in the making) and a few other things.  I am usuing the tab dividers for the different sections.

The coupon folder is great for the average couponer. It doesn't quite work for the person who clips hundreds of coupons a month. My mom clips what she knows she'll use. This would be perfect for her! Instead I am usuing it to put my ideas in. If I see a cute art project to do with the kids, a recipe to try or a room decorating idea, I will put it in my little organizer. Also, since we are moving and decorating it will be used for paint swatches and clippings from magazines.

I use the 1subject notebook to do some brainstorming, the mini notebook to keep at my computer for passwords, and the other small notebook to keep information straight for my blog and to write things down when I am talking on the phone.

I'm loving my Carolina Pad stuff! Would you like to enjoy some really cool stuff too? Carolina Pad has given me a coupon code to share with my readers! Use the code HC_Coupon at checkout and receive a free coupon expandable file folder! What an awesome deal!

  3. These collections are really cute! I love the green and black in Simply Chic, the popping colors in Eye Candy, and The big florals of Whimsical Flower. But I liked the browns and colors in Hot Chocolate, too. I think I could use two sets- one for organizing the house and garden and one for keeping track of things at work! janajana9@msn.com
