Summer is over and the school season has begun for most of us. With all the back-to-school shopping we do, I think we would all have to agree that the backpack is one of the most important items on any mother’s shopping list. Even though there are so many different styles and brands on the market, it is always hard to choose one that is durable enough to withstand our rough little tots and yet chic and cute at the same time.
Dante Beatrix is a New York City based company which has developed an incredible line of little kid backpacks suitable for ages 2-5. Their adorable animal designs are colorful, modern and original. Constructed with nylon and laminated canvas makes these backpacks super easy to clean. The interior is roomy and includes a zippered pocket to store whatever treasures your child chooses. Other features include a padded back panel with a name tag and padded, adjustable shoulder straps.

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).

EST. Entries open to Continental US residents only. Good luck!

Actress Kate Beckinsale, her husband Len Wiseman and her 10-year-old daughter Lily Mo stopped by The Wagging Tail in Santa Monica yesterday to pick up a few necessities for their new pup. After their shopping spree the family headed to Jack N’ Jills for a bite to eat.
Kate, 36, graces the cover of the new issue of Esquire magazine, which has crowned her this year’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.” The Underworld star inherits the title from last year’s winner, Halle Berry.
