FAMILY FACTS™ HELPS
FAMILIES GET ORGANIZED FOR THE NEW YEAR
Resolve to Improve Family Harmony through Better Organization!
Imagine...no more conflicts
in your family’s
schedule. No more misplaced business cards, lost party
invitations or forgotten paint colors. No more time
wasted tracking down information—or forgetting
altogether what needs to be done.
When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, getting
organized is at the top of every busy mother’s
list. Enter Pam Schiller Socolow, professional organizer,
entrepreneur and Westchester mom. After listening to
the needs of fellow parents and rigorously testing
her evolving product, Ms. Socolow has introduced the
Family Facts™ Family Life Organizer™ in
time for the New Year.
"Family harmony doesn’t just happen," said
Ms. Socolow, a member of NAPO (National Association
of Professional Organizers). "It takes organization!" Because
even the most organized moms have difficulty managing
adults, children, pets, and an entire household, Ms.
Socolow has developed the Family Life Organizer™ an
easy to use organizational system. It guides and motivates
families to get organized and stay organized with the
following eight sections: calendar, everyday phone
numbers, school and camp, activity, health, home & auto,
party and vacation. There is room for school flyers,
restaurant reviews, receipts, swatches, business cards
The growing line of Family
Facts™ products includes
the Family Life Organizer™ and Family Life Organizer™ Refill
Pages, plus handy tear-off pads including a 7-Day,
5-Day and Daily Family Scheduler, Caregiver Checklist
and Menu & Shopping Planner. The complete system
is thoughtfully designed to streamline family scheduling
and safeguard essential information.
"Every family is different, but what we have
in common are hectic lives, mounds of paper, schedules
to keep, and more information than we can remember," notes
Ms. Socolow. "Unlike electronic or other paper-based
products out there, our system helps you get a handle
on the activities of an entire active household."
To start using the Family
Life Organizer™, put
the flyers that come home in your children's' backpack
into the school pocket. Throw the lunch menu and class
telephone lists in the labeled sheet protectors. Put
business cards from doctors in the Health section and
from frequented retailers in the home & auto section.
Enter auto inspection dates on the calendar and tuck
invitations [already responded to] in the Party pocket.
Enter neighbors and favorite restaurants in the everyday
phone number section and place award cards such as
frequent flyer, rental car and hotel in the travel
section. Already you’re on your way to being
a better organized family!
"Family organization is a hot topic with everyone
you talk to," emphasizes Ms. Socolow. "People
are looking for a system that lets them stress less
and make the most of what little family time they have." Consumers
and retailers seem to agree. Since its launch in October
of 2003, the Family Facts™ website has had 29,000
hits and advance orders have been strong.
Family Facts™ products are now available at
Westchester retailers including Penny Auntie and Michelle
Danielle in Chappaqua, as well as through the website
at Family-Facts.com. The Family Life Organizer™ retails
for $44 and the tear-off pads are priced at $10–$12.
The 100% made in the USA product line will be introduced
into stores throughout the U.S. and Canada in 2004.
