"Simplify My Life" - A Chance to win an HP Mini 110!


After being downsized, I started to construct a plan to reinvent myself. In the past 8 months, I have immersed myself in everything related to the internet from surfing on interesting topics related to health, beauty, kid's stuff, and companies; employment networking sites, venturing onto Twitter(definitely stepped outside of my box on this one), and lastly blogging about my life as a mommy.


My two little ones consume most of my free time outside of my designated bedtime.

The lack of organizing household and personal tasks can definitely use an overhaul. This is my yet to be organized stack of weekly mail, need I say more?
My current laptop is an archaeic piece of technology compared to this sleek and compact jewel of techie heaven. When I have to transport my current laptop downstairs to prepare dinner, it feels so cumbersome with the oversized keyboard and screen. Someone who has a sleeker model asked "why did you decide to get a laptop with such a large screen?" The package price from the electronics store was in my ball park, thank you very much! This comment made me feel so embarrassed about my oversized laptop that I decided to leave it home on my birthday trip to Miami. My biggest fear was that the TSA agent would call me out because it would not fit inside of a bin. In an effort to make my departure uneventful I left it home and forgoed tweeting and blogging about my trip. Silly I know, what can I say we definitely live for our techie gadgets.

Please help me move into a new world of technology! I really do need a sleeker model with flexibility. What do you think?- yes this is really an oversized screen.



In my new world of getting organized. I would love to have the ability to shift between writing my blog posts, tweeting, creating a household folder quickly using this compact tool. I would love to own a laptop that is lightweight and robust enough to fit into a sturdy tote bag when I travel or when I need to transport it from one room to another. As a busy mom of two I am always on the move!

I have to do a lot of traveling and I use a friend's extra laptop while I'm on the road. It would be great if I didn't have to use his and didn't have to carry such a big thing through airport security!

Karin said...

What a cute computer! Good luck to you.

The size and weight of the beautiful HP Mini 110-1100 by Studio Tord Boontje would make it perfect for on-the-go computing. I would also be able to easily take it around the house and out to the back yard.

A mini would definitely simplify my life because I wouldn’t have to lug around that big heavy laptop anymore!! And it would fit inside my handbag instead of being so conspicuous in a carry around laptop bag. And besides, you don’t always want to carry your laptop with you but leaving it in the car is a direct invitation to thieves to break in and steal it. Being able to carry it in my purse is a major advantage! Great giveaway!

JRE said...

That is a great size for a computer. Good luck!

Ruby said...

An HP Mini 110 would simplify my life by allowing me to keep up with all of my computer activities (blogging, emailing, entering contests, social networking, surfing the Internet, etc.) when I'm not able to be on my laptop (which just so happens to be an HP) for whatever reason. With 4 kids, the reason I'm not able to be on my laptop could be anything! :O

midwest mama said...

Not sure it would actually simplify my life, but I'm willing to give it a try:-) Good luck!

Vanessa said...

Good Luck!

Something this small would be really convenient for me since I need a computer for work and it is light enough to take on the bus which I use to commute every day. I could check e-mails & bills on my commute. My old laptop was actually stolen recently so I would love a new one! Good luck!

Man my life could use some simplifying! I would love to be able to write my blog posts on the go or during lunch breaks. Now if the HP Mini 110 could help me get my daughter to sleep through the night, I would be in LOVE (even more!)

Anne J said...

This would be great! I'd love to be able to work on the go, like while I'm waiting for the kids to finish piano or dance lessons.

I would LOVE to win the HP Mini. I need to organize and simplify my crazy and busy life. Crossing my fingers in hopes of winning.

I am in the process of trying to start my own business and I currently work from home...but I rarely stay in one place with my laptop. As I suffer from degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine - coupled with a heavy laptop - changing my "workspace" throughout the day is NOT an easy task.

The HP Mini would simplify my life by allowing me to move my computer from place to place on my own...no more bothering the rest of the family! This netbook would be a true lifesaver!

Thanks so much!

This is what I need because sometimes my Iphone is too small to do everything on. I also need to get organized.

Nicole said...

Wishing you luck... and hoping for some luck myself!

Heather McDougle said...

I'm Anitra! said...

Good luck on winning. I love your blog theme and I'm following you now. Take care!

Twincere said...

Good Luck to you! I blogged & entered, too!
This HP 100 Mini netbook would be a blessing to our family, as we only have one old desktop to share amongst our family of 7. We rely heavily on spreadsheets, lists,email and schedules, etc. to streamline our day to day activities, and the portability of the HP 100 mini would make it so effortless and stylish. Plus, mobile computing would be perfect to pass the time--when time seemingly stands still--like when waiting in a doctor's office!

Good Luck!

I would love to win this HP mini. As the mother of three teenage boys, I need all the help I can get staying organized!

Snowflake07 said...

This would be so nice! I've never had a laptop before. The ability to surf the net from the couch (or anywhere for that matter) would simplify my life beyond belief. Good luck everyone :-)
