Giveaway: momAgenda

As with many great inventions, the momAgenda was created to simplify the life of its founder – and caught on like wildfire. Nina Restieri, a former successful ad executive, and businesswoman at the helm of a family business, was attempting to organize her chaotic schedule (and those of her family of four young children) one morning when she started to think about wedding planners. Why, she wondered, are there hundreds of options for brides to choose from to plan their wedding, but not a single option for mothers to plan their everyday lives? One year of extensive research later, momAgenda was born. The first run of products sold out within three days to 120 stores. At that moment, Nina knew she had struck a chord with women all over the country who had the same desire to bring some order to their hectic lives.

Since its inception in 2005, momAgenda has grown annually to include a diversified range of products that help organize the lives of mothers and others, including day planners (myAgenda, mom Agenda and Personal Portfolio) home organizers (Kitchen Folio, School Years, Wall Calendar) and helpful pads. The collection is sold at leading national retailers and regional boutiques throughout the US.

We are giving away a Personal Portfolio (value of $145), and a complete set of pads (Chore Pad, Honey Do Pad, Weekly Menu Pad, Family Planner Pad, Permission Pad, Babysitter’s Pad, and To Do List Pad) for a prize totaling over $200.

In addition, momAgenda is offering CBS readers an exclusive 20% discount. All you need to do is enter CELEBMOM at checkout.

*HOW TO ENTER* Leave a comment here with a valid email address (will not be published). Please state your favorite product sold at momAgenda and 1 winner will be chosen at random at the end of the contest. One entry per person, per day. This contest ends Friday, October 9th at 7 P.M. EST. Entries open to Continental US residents only. Good luck!

Congratulations to the winners of our Punkster giveaway: Cassandra & zmama!

    Angelina Jolie & Her Giggly Girls

    We can’t get enough of the Jolie-Pitts! Angelina Jolie was spotted outside a supermarket with two of her six children – daughters Zahara Marley, 4 ½ and Shiloh Nouvel, 3 – in Brignoles, France on Monday (October 5). Shiloh gave us a toothless smile, while Zaraha giggled and skipped alongside her mom and little sis.

    Brangelina has just returned from the Middle East where they helped raise awareness for the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees who remain in exile. While in Jordan, the A-listers were spotted with their 1-year-old adorable twins: son Knox and daughter Vivienne.

    The couple are also parents to Maddox Chivan, 8 and 5 ½-year-old Pax Thien.
