Review of MeadOrganizer On-the-Go Expense Tracker and Week-to-Week Magnetic Notepad (Helping Keep You Organized)

meadreviews2The most common question people ask me is how to stay organized.  Whether it be for your business or keeping track of the kids’ activities, it can be tough to do.  Mead has a products which can help you do just that. I recently had the chance to review a couple of them and share my thoughts with you.

mead2 Whether you run a business or not, you may need to keep track of receipts and expenses.  Most of us probably just shove all of our receipts into our wallet or bag and then, when we get home, we try to sort through them (or sadly, lose them).  The Mead®Organizer® On-the-Go Expense Tracker can help you alleviate this problem.

First of all, it has a small pouch on the inside pocket where you can place all of those receipts at the end of each day.  This way, they are all in one place and you have no worries about losing them.

Secondly, it has a place to record expenses.  What I love about this feature is having a place to track the cash I spend.  It may not seem like you spend much, but $10 here, $20 there – it can all add up!  As you spend your cash, you can jot it down.

Now, you can have all of your expenses accounted for, which can make it simpler when doing your monthly accounting and/or your annual tax return!  It can also be helpful if you are traveling as a family, so you can watch your overall spending and make sure you are staying within your budget.

This sells for $9 at Mead.com.

mead3Having three kids and activities, meetings and work travel schedules can be tough to manage.  We keep a calendar on our refrigerator to help us do that.  I really loved this Mead®Organizer® Week-To-Week Magnetic Notepad.  We just placed it on our refrigerator and filled in the date at top.  I then filled it in with what was happening each day of the week, which helped, but what made it even better was my husband doing it too!

It seems he would think he told me about a meeting or other event and hadn’t.  Now, he can just write it down on the weekly calendar so we don’t have to worry about forgetting to share!

This sells for $7 at Mead.com.

There are lots of really amazing organizing tools available at Mead.com.  No matter what your need, they’ve probably got something which will work for you.

gordmans

I absolutely love shopping at Gordman’s.  I find the items that my family wants — and don’t pay those high department store prices.  This past week, my kids did not have school one day and so we spent some time visiting some stores – and Gordman’s was one of them they chose!

My youngest walked along and was taken in when she saw the Disney Frozen items.  I couldn’t believe the selection and so much less expensive than what I have found elsewhere.  Here are some of the things she saw and wanted (which she learned right away meant she couldn’t necessarily take home with her).   Yes, that is her saying PLEASSSSEEEEEEEE……….

If you’ve got an Elsa, Anna and Olaf fan living with you.  Make sure you visit Gordman’s before you spend too much at other stores!

And make sure you take along THIS coupon to save 20% off of one item too!!  Gotta love those coupons PLUS the low prices!!
