We just SO loved this blog post today on ‘Get Organised Day’ in National Stationery Week, by stationery lover, Amanda Carter at http://amanda-sheseclectic.blogspot.co.uk/ we asked if we could reblog it here! If you want to enter Amanda’s competition please leave a comment on her original post rather than here!

First of all I have to say “Monthly Muddle Manager” rolls off of the tongue nicely, as I have said before I love a bit of alliteration! “What is the Monthly Muddle Manager?” I hear you ask. Well it is a large, A3 size pad for your desk that has an undated calendar printed on each page. You choose which month you want to start with and fill in the date boxes (Can you call triangles boxes? I mean, I am, but I’m not sure it’s the right word?) and write the month in the top right corner.

The Monthly Muddle Manager (sorry, I just like saying it!) is made from thick card so it is durable and hard wearing and has 30 calendar pages per pad so it will last you two and a half years! “Oh yeah but bottom of the page will get all crumpled and the corners will curl up and look a mess!” I imagine some of you are thinking but no, no they wont because the people who make it are very, very clever! They thought that could happen too so they came up with a smart idea, they glued the pages together at the bottom of the pad instead of the top so no matter how much you use it and write on it you wont “worry” or rumple the sheets.
|Glued on the bottom – what a great idea!|
I really like being able to see my whole month at once without having to open my Filofax and flip through to the right section. If I am on the phone and need to check a date or make a note of something it is right next to me and I can jot it down or scribble in the margin if it’s a long call and I’m getting bored. The size also means I wont knock it off my desk or miss place it like I have done before with smaller pads!
