DotMine Giveaway! Comments Closed

Today's Giveaway is Sponsored by DotMine Group.

I have been looking for the perfect planner for our family for months, even holding off on buying one for 2010 because I couldn't find one that would properly meet my needs.  This led to a lot of confusion and disorganization, but I wanted to buy one that would work for us.  All the planners I found were either too small to hold all of our crazy lives and my incessant jotting of lists, or too overly intricate for me to be able to find anything.  Enter the Dotmine planner.  I had heard great things about these and even had the opportunity to peek into one owned by a friend of mine. I was most pleased to learn that Dotmine group was started right here in Ann Arbor by a pair of moms.  I was hooked!  My own Dotmine Planner arrived 2 weeks ago and since has been filled to the brim with all of our activities, meal planning lists, etc.


Each Month has its own layout for a quick at-a-glance look at upcoming events.  Each week also has its own layout for more in depth planning with space for lists on the side to hold any additional information.  My personal favorite section is the seasonal fold out schedule where you can put in your Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter weekly and daily schedule, a must have for any Mom who suddenly has Little League practice to keep track of on top of normal life.  Each planner runs from August to the following December allowing for a full school year and the following summer/fall.  In the back there is space for additional notes, necessary phone numbers, stickers to keep track of birthdays, games, recitals and bills and a pocket in the back to keep any additional paperwork.  I have searched high and low for the perfect family planner, and I've definitely found it!

The DotMine calendars boast undeniably attractive covers, are easy to tote around and a snap to navigate.  Here is some additional information from their website:



dotmine group was started in Ann Arbor, MI in 1999 by Lisa and Sarah, two women on a child-rearing detour from their prior professional lives in retail and consumer products.

The original business concept of dotmine group remains the same today as when we first began: create fashionable, functional, and affordable day planners to help individuals and families keep track of busy schedules. Our calendar products provide unique planning tools designed to meet the specific, unique needs of busy people, plus, they're reasonably priced from $12.99 to $16.99.

Our first brand, time.mine®, hit the stores in 2001. This academic planner was designed to fill the void that existed in the teen/young adult market between licensed products and low-end "pleather-type" planners. For busy students, the time.mine® planner includes a class schedule, monthly calandar, weekly calendar and a weekly sidebar for "My time".

The second brand, Celebrating the Latino Woman® was introduced in 2003 to help bilingual men and women keep track of busy schedules. Now kwown as tiempo.mio®, the growth of this brand has been steady and our commitment to this market segment remains strong.

The success of our initial products led to the creation of familytime.mine® and life_time.mine™.These organizers feature fashion-friendly covers combined with a unique planning system to help busy moms and busy professionals keep track of meetings, appointments and everthing in between.

dotmine products are available through Borders, Borders Express, and Waldenbooks. Online, our products are available through Calendars.com, Amazon.com and timemine.com.
