Bits n Pieces Review *** A Blogtastic Extravaganza 2.0

August 13th, 2011

A Blogtastic Extravaganza 2.0 is right around the corner! Not too long before the big event. I'd like to introduce you to one of my great sponsors, Bits n' Pieces, etc. Charmaine, owner of Bits n' Pieces, etc., has great organizational solutions for anyone who is on the go. Have you ever gotten to the grocery store without your shopping list? Have you needed to make a quick note of something but had no pen or paper? I hear some of you snickering in the background thinking, "Isn't that what Smartphones are for?". Well, even though I have a Smartphone, I don't use it for those reasons. If I put it in my phone, I'll forget it's there. I'm a paper-list-taking type girl. I need to write things down to remember them. Charmaine has the perfect thing; The Mini List Taker. (See the review below for more info on the Mini List Taker).

Crayon Wallet in Groovy Guitars

Bits n Pieces, etc. also has coloring wallets for kids. These, along with all the other items in the shop, come in an array of bright, vivid fabrics, designer fabrics. Coloring wallets are a great way to give children the freedom to draw whenever, and where ever they want to. The wallets come with slots for crayons and a pad of paper. These are great to keep in your purse for doctors visits, long car rides, plane trips, anywhere little idle hands need to be kept busy!

The Review:

Charmaine sent me a Mini List Taker in Black Ironwork Swirls by Michael Miller and a matching key chain for review. The Mini List Taker measures 9" x 6" when opened, and 4 1/2" x 6" when closed. There is a button attached to the front of the organizer and an elastic loop that goes over the button for a secured closure. There are two pockets of equal size on the inside; one for a 3x5" pad of paper and one for coupons, gift cards, shopping lists and other things that you need to keep in one place. The pocket is a great way of keeping track of receipts. The organizer even has a pocket for a mini pen or pencil. Charmaine sent me a mechanical pencil that looks like a regular pencil. I love it! I've kept this little organizer in my purse and, believe me, it has come in handy! There have been a few time where I've been out with the kids and had to wait in long lines. They were able to draw a few pictures and play with the list taker while we were waiting. While talking with a friend about books suggestions, she blurted out about 5 titles. Knowing I would never remember them, I took out my list taker and jotted down the titles. Perfect! Life with kids can be disorganized and slightly chaotic. At least I know where to find my notes!

The key chain came at a perfect time. My key chain that I had for years recently broke and I was waiting for the right one to come along. The key chains made by Charmaine are so sturdy, I'm confident it will be here for the long run. There is a trigger clasp at one end and a regular key ring on the other. Its the perfect size at ____ long. This key chain makes it so much easier to find my keys at the bottom of my diaper bag!
