I Don't Know How She Does It #Giveaway (ARV $75) CLOSED!

In celebration of Anchor Bay Entertainment's January 3rd release of I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT I will be giving away amazing kit for the ladies that do it all!  These kits include some of the best items to make a Mom On The Go's life easier. Trying to balance work and family is a non-stop juggling act for Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker).  As a determined Boston-based finance executive, she devotes her day to her job and her night to her adoring husband Richard (Greg Kinnear) and their two young children.  In between conference calls, meetings, deadlines, and her daughter’s school bake sale, Kate manages to survive on a daily basis.  But when she gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, and Richard also wins the new job he's been hoping for, both will be spreading themselves even thinner.  Complicating matters is Kate's charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan), a handsome executive whose unexpected emotional support becomes a source of refuge.

The Mom On The Go Kit includes:
Door organizer for keys and cell phones
Stylish Notebook for To-Do Lists and Notes
Pocket Manicure set
Starbucks Ready Brew coffee
$10 iTunes Gift Card for Productivity apps
Pepperidge Farm Soft Baked Cookies
I Don't Know How She Does It on DVD
