She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.

Back when I actually was organized 😉 I used to do a “brain dump” regularly. I’d take a legal pad and write down everything that came to mind that I needed to do or read or think about or whatever. Even those odd-ball projects. Then I’d sort it and make prioritized to-do lists and I’d get a good bit of it done. Often, I’d start with areas in which I needed to dump some of my brain, like “homeschool” and “craft projects” and “church activities,” “budgetary concerns,” etc. Lately, I can barely pull together a proper to-do list!

I try and stay organized by using my planner, and making lots of lists! What a blessing this planner will be on someone! Thank you for hosting this.

Wonderful Planner!!! I’m excited that it’s all in one. Everything that I need is right there in one location.

Beautifully done! I’m usually just lucky in love but maybe I could be lucky enough to win this!

Would love to win this it’s beautiful!
Always looking to make my faith stronger!

What a beautiful planner! I love to get organized by using planners and good ‘ol pen and paper.

Whenever I need to get organized, I find it the most effective to make a list/plan of attack SOMETHING so when the inevitable distraction arises, I can resume what I was doing with minimal head-scratching of “what was I doing again??”

I teach at a small Catholic school in Ohio. I would love to win a planner. This would be very helpful while teaching four 5th and 6th grade religion classes.Thank you.

Hi- I do not have a blog- but really LOVE the idea of a catholic planner!! especially because I teach PSR and it will help a lot with that!’

I would love to see a bundle for working moms. There are many catholic working moms out there that would love a goals section for balancing work/home! I would definitely purchase that! Great calendar and would love this!

Wow!!!! I love the homeschooling bundle!!! Being a homesteader and homeschooling mama, some days are less organized than others.
Some days i feel like I’m herding kids and teaching the goats the alphabet, haha.

Oh, this looks great! I hope I win!!!! I try to stay organized with lists. Loose leaf, various sizes of paper that always get lost on my counter!!!!

I get organized with color coded labels, files, lists, etc. It is especially helpful for my daughter and her visual processing. It also makes things easy to find and they look pretty, too.

One of my favorite ways to get organized is to take everything out of the space I’m attempting to bring to order, and then only put back no more than half of it, donating or tossing the other half.

Lists, lists, lists and lists, that’s how I organize. I also don’t “listen” to my phone when I walk into the office. I plan for 15 minutes (usually with my online blogging buddy, Tiffany) and then get to work!

I love to make a menu plan for the week and only shop for those planned meals. Thank you so much.

I love technology, but I get organized best by WRITING THINGS DOWN. I’m intrigued by all the cool lists and forms included in the bundle!

planners, calendars and using the calendar on my phone is how i attempt to get organized ha!

I need to make lists to get organized. I like writing with pen and paper, and am much more inclined to use a paper planner than a calendar on my phone or computer.

I stay organized through to-do lists and an always updated calendar! Without those 2 things, I’d go crazy!!

This would be so awesome since this fall we begin home-schooling for the first time and I’ll need to be organized more than ever before!

I use a planner and make many, many lists to stay organized.
This looks awesome! I am especially interested in the Household Management Planner. Will you have a price option for purchasing an add-on without the main planner?

Organization is a must for me! Keeping track of to-do-list, projects, events, etc…is vital for me. I find it easier to write it instead of using my cell phone. Keeps me on task and happy:)

I still keep everything in my head, despite all my attempts to go “digital” with my calendar. It’s not the best way. I think I’m going to go back to the “old fashioned” paper planner, because when I had one, I used it!

For me everything must be put on my online google calendar, but I feel I also need to have a hard copy for the kids to see and this would be perfect!

I use an old fashioned planner- I need the feel of pen on paper! I also regularly purge my apartment to keep clutter to minimum.

I LOVE to use a planner that can travel with me so I can write in things “on the go” instead of having to wait & try to remember when I get home. 😉 (Don’t have a smartphone or any sort of “app” phone … I like pen & paper much better!)

My current organizing tool is the big chalkboard I have hanging in my kitchen. I write down all appointments, parties, or other responsibilities on there, use it for homeschooling, and sometimes use it as a quick reminder of what needs to be purchased at the grocery store. I would be lost without my chalkboard.

I use colorful Post It notes and different colored pens on my calendar! Looking to change up my calendar/planner … a Catholic planner would be wonderful!

I get organized with Google calendars. Everything goes on the calendar– bills, menus, activities, and work. The only catch is that I don’t have an i-phone, so if I don’t have internet access, I don’t have my life!

I like to organize things around happy deadlines like upcoming vacations or special holidays. It gives me a mark on the calendar to aim for and something fun to motivate me through the work projects.

I make my shopping lists on Notes on the iPhone for the stores I shop from frequently and add things as we run out so the list is ready to go!

I get organized by getting UNorgranized first. :). I like to pull everything out (which makes a HUGE mess!), the. Slowly work my way through everything until we reach organization.

Great looking planner–this is just what I need. How can I purchase one? I need to get organized ASAP!

Katie,

Downloads will be available next Tuesday – it is an eventual goal to be able to offer this in print, but for now, this was the quickest way to get it into many hands. 🙂

Thanks Martina! I guess I was so excited that I didn’t see the July 15 availability date. I will check back then…yay!

This is SUCH a blessing ( : I can’t wait to see what happens! I definitely have been in search of a good Catholic sister online group, so thank you so much for sharing this blessed website with others!

Ave Maria sister and Pax Christi,

Ana Carolina

My best way to stay organized? Post it notes! LOL I have them everywhere!!! Thank you for the chance to win!

I now roll all my dd’s clothes in her drawers. Saves space plus she can see at a glance what the time is she wants to wear. No more t-shirt spills!

I am currently revisiting the Household Notebook concept with my organization. I’m a full-time CNA at a hospital, a full time college student (NOT in nursing), beginning blogger, a wife and mother… So having a central item where everything can be organized is proving essential to me. The Calendar and Blog planner would be very helpful (not to mention very pretty from the previews I’ve seen!)

I use my smart phone calendar for many appointments and my shopping lists. To do and cleaning lists are still a work in progress.

I’ve had good success with COZI calendar, but I’m just staring my homeschool journey, and this seems PERFECT! Paper calendars mean I don’t need to have my phone at my side all day long!

I am trying very hard to get organized!! I use an internet calendar but I think this one would be so much better!!

I ‘organize’ by making lots and lots of lists.
…If I could just put the lists into actions, I’d be golden!

I have a big dry erase board–i am an out of sight out of mind kind of person. My husband and I sync up our google calendars to stay consistently up to date with our schedules as he has a sales career.
