Carolina Pad Review & Giveaway

I have a confession; I'm a school supply junkie. Nothing makes me happier than those wonderful sales when it's time to return to school. New pens, pencils, markers, woo hoo! And then there is my true love, the binders, planners, dividers, and all the other products that I am completely convinced will help get me organized. I seriously buy quite a bit of these products because I am on a constant quest for organization. The problem is that 1) thirty year old women should not have binders that sport Hannah Montana's face and 2) student planners do not work real well for mommies. So, when I was given the opportunity to do a review of Carolina Pad's products I was thrilled! This is what I was given from their Hot Chocolate Collection to review:

1-subject notebook

Ideal Book

Personal Book

3-ring binder

Tab dividers

File Folders

13-pocket expandable folder

Coupon expandable folder

19-month planner

Stick-on notes/flags



My first impression was that these products are so adorable. They work for kiddos as well as grown ups, featuring trendy designs and bright colors. Ashley quickly claimed the dividers for school use, as well as the coupon expandable folder for keeping her flash cards organized. As she was running off with her goodies, I was immediately setting up my planner; no more "class schedule" back to school student planners for this mama! I love the way the planner is organized, it is a joy to use. I've since put the expandable folder t good use and wonder how I ever lived without it! Oh, and the stick on note! They are handy for some many things from reminder notes to bookmarks! I can't even tell you how many ways I've used those. Miss Ashley and I are still debating over who gets what as far as the rest of the items. I think I passed on my love of all stationary/organizational products.

The verdict? These products are cute and practical. Plus, they are good quality products that are reasonably priced. They help you to get more organized and look good doing it. Carolina Pad products are great for at school or at home, and have many great uses. I've gotten more organized thanks to them. Ashley has the cutest dividers in her class. We say they get two thumbs up. You might want to click over and check Carolina Pad out for yourself.

How would you like to have some of these awesome products for yourself? One lucky winner will receive a set of products just like the ones I was given to review (MSRP approximately $38). Yep, all that stuff listed above!
