Random Giveaway: Handbag and Day Planner from Franklin Covey

August 15, 2007



I’ve got an extra good Giveaway today. And just in time for all you women out there who are getting your act together for the new school year. You want to be more organized. You want to upgrade your style. Well, the
winner of this Giveaway can do both — with their brand new HANDBAG and coordinating PLANNER COVER from FranklinCovey!!




These two gorgeous items (don’t you just LOVE that buckle detailing!) are from the Her Point of View line and they don’t even hit stores or the FranklinCovey website until August 21st. So here’s a big internet high-five because we’re getting the exclusive product preview before everyone else. This tote is luxe. Full-grain, oil-tanned leather with magnetic closure. And a flexible body makes it comfortable to carry. Retail value: $149.00. The binder shares the same impressive details and retails for $89.95. Total giveaway value: $240.00!!

Take a look inside:



My FranklinCovey love affair goes way back. I was already a planner addict as a sophomore in high school. I even worked at a FranklinCovey store in Orange County, CA for the summer after my freshman year of college. And I know their products are quality. The leather is gorgeous. The construction is impeccable. But when FranklinCovey inquired about a Giveaway and mentioned their totes, my eyebrows were raised. Handbags? Seriously? And then I checked out their selection and was super-impressed. Check it out and be impressed yourself.

Although originally designed to simply coordinate with and house their planners, their totes have evolved to fit much, much more. There are pockets to hold cell-phones, keys, pens, lap-tops, wallets, even diapers. I hear many customers are drawn to the totes without even purchasing the binder or organizing systems. I can see why the handbags have become so popular. Here are some of my favorite picks from their collection:


Charlotte Tote in willow.


Marbella Tote in blush.


Her Point of View Hobo in hot cider.

In addition to giving away the handbag and planner binder, FranklinCovey would also like to offer Design Mom Readers 10% off any FranklinCovey Tote! Just enter 18010 at check-out to receive the discount. FranklinCovey’s philosophy has always been to help customers stay organized — good to know they do it with such style.

Thank you FranklinCovey!
