And the winner is…

Congratulations to Joy from North East, PA!  She is the winner of The Household Menu and Coupon Organizer.  She’ll have her copy before the release date of September 1.  After that date, keep an eye out for it in stores.  The book is so nice because it has pocket pages which hold coupons and recipes, articles on health and nutrition, and space to plan menus and weekly grocery lists (I’ll be doing these last two in pencil so I can use the book over and over).

Thanks so much to everyone who entered the drawing by leaving comments on my blog.  I appreciate your feedback and look forward to hearing from you all again in the future.  As for the next seven days, I am working like a bee to complete another project deadline.  As soon as I have a title, I’ll let everyone know.  I’ve been told the book will be released before Christmas and will be exclusive to Walmart stores.

Again, thanks for making my blogging experience fun by leaving comments.  Joy, I hope you enjoy your free book!

    Now THIS is an organizer, ladies and gentlemen!

    The entire organizer is user-friendly and goal-oriented. From the sturdy cover and durable plastic spiral-bound spine to the card-stock quality pages, here’s an organizer that will hold up to the wear and tear of regular use.

    Not only is the book light and easy to carry and use, but it’s chock-full of charts for maintaining a list of family meal favorites, writing goals for grocery budgeting, preparing for the sometimes-dreaded holiday cooking marathons, and tracking price fluctuations of your family’s most-used items (as well as where the best store is to buy them) will keep the strictest home administrator as pleased as punch.

    Guidelines, tips, and tricks can be found in between each month’s lists. Often, they are exactly the advice one needs to keep in mind during the upcoming month. It starts off with a “keep it simple” set of guidelines on healthy eating, encouraging us to keep our New Year’s resolutions throughout January–and beyond. Gardening tips to get us geared up for May planting. A primer on Farmer’s Markets prior to the onset of June and summertime’s bountiful blessings. Tips on healthy take-along lunches to kick off the school year’s start in September. This organizer keeps on giving brief–yet memorable–advice right on through the advent of the holidays in November and December with plan-ahead entertaining and holiday baking help.

    I particularly found the Bible verses on the front of the coupon pockets (found between each advice article and the month’s menu planner) to be pertinent to the preceding article, and the additional space to write in a monthly good-health goal is a great focal point to glance at every time you grab a coupon at the store.

    After these monthly coupon holders–already chock-full of goodness before you ever get your coupons in them–comes the pre-set lines for meal scheduling and weekly grocery shopping. All that makes it a good monthly planner, but what makes it GREAT is the chart space provided for planning ahead (or jotting down frantically at the last minute, as the case may be) for parties and events. Who doesn’t get caught the week before an event searching through their pantry for potential ingredients for ANY recipe? Or worse–ends up overspending to try to meet the commitment of showing up to a party with delectables? Yet, how many times could it be avoided if the household manager simply takes the time at the beginning of each month to consider the possible upcoming events? Delectable, indeed, is the inclusion of this nifty addition to monthly budgeting.

    At the end of the book, you’ll find websites and blogs to glean more out of the contributors’ respective fields of expertise.

    I can tell you that I’ve already bookmarked most of them.

    Thank you, Carol, and your cohorts for making a household help that truly helps!
