Internet Password Organizer + Giveaway


I received the Internet Password Organizer in the mail some time ago and I must be honest and say that I was a little skeptical about it at first. You see I already had a little notebook that I kept beside my laptop with all my passwords written in. I thought I was on top of it yet as I added more and more passwords to my notebook I was increasingly getting more and more frustrated trying to find the passwords that I needed. I do try to often use the same password but in many instances it just isn't possible. I also keep my business and personal emails and passwords completely separate which often creates many more username/password combinations than I have the brain capacity to remember.

However I really didn't know how time consuming all that page flipping in my little red notebook was until I started to use the Internet Password Organizer. You see what make the Internet Password Organizer so special is that it is alphabetized and that my friends makes me very, very happy! I am saving all sorts of time and hair pulling craziness now.

The organizer has a spiral binding that allows the book to open flat and also includes reinforced A-Z tabbed dividers with two letters per tab. Each space has room to record the webpage, username, password and notes. Normally the organizer sells for $19.99 but right now they have a 20% off Father's Day promotion going on when you use the coupon code "Dad".

This week I am also giving away a copy for one lucky reader! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before Friday, May 23rd 11:59 pm pst to be entered. If you don't have a blog please remember to include your email address.

Good luck!

How handy!

Suzanne said...

My list of passwords is also near capacity. I am *this close* to needing something like this--winning it would be great.

Mrs. F said...

Woo hoo! I wanna win! There are some websites where I have to change my password every time I go there because I do not have them written down. This would make life so much easier!

tea4two321 said...

This would be a lifesaver!

momof3crazykids said...

Oh my husband would love me if I had one of those. He is always asking me what the password for this and that is and when I try to look it up in my little notebook I either can't find it or I changed it and forgot to change it on my notebook. Yikes!
Would LOVE LOVE to win this!

Laura H. said...

I so need this!!

Jeni said...

This sounds like it would work great!! We used to just use one central password, but now all the sites have different requirements, so we have several.

Lori said...

OMG! I didn't know that such a thing existed! How I would LOVE to be your winner!
Blessings~

CelticBuffy said...

I SO need this! I hate using the same password for everything but hate to use anything else for fear I'd forget it. I've not been organized enough to actually use a notebook to keep track of passwords.

Brooke Hren said...

I need this too. I have a small notebook as well that I write my passwords in but they are no particular order and I have to search through all the pages to find the one!

BecauseImTheMommy said...

How unbelievably brilliant! Why didn’t I think of it? I need it! I have absolutely NO organization in this department. I find myself continually needing to hit the “remind me” or “hint” buttons on my websites…terrible thing to admit.

Darcie said...

I would love to have this!

Cheri said...

My notecard has become woefully inadequate for keeping track of everything! Please enter me in your drawing!

mommy2boys said...

must have.................

Corrie said...

That sounds like a wonderful tool to keep track of everything.

April in CT said...

What a brilliant idea!!

Mikki said...

How great is that!! I have a little beat up ole notebook that I have been using.

I would love to add this next to my computer :-)

Dianna, Queen of the Castle said...

Okay I am so totally with you on this. I also have a notebook that I keep this kind of information in. Oh it would be wonderful to have something like this to organize my passwords in to make it easier to find them.

Jen said...

Love this! post it notes all over my desk just don't cut it. jkolsubs(at)gmail(dot)com

Karen said...

Between work, school and the many websites I go to for fun, I need something to keep me organized!

karen.richey@sbcglobal.net

The Mama Hood said...

This would help me out with all the sites I use! I hate having to reset them! Thanks!

Tanna Clark said...

Of course, I'm not entering since I have one but isn't it amazing! I keep separate passwords for business and personal and some have to big 6 characters or 8 characters long or have numbers and letters, blah, blah.
But now it is so easy to keep track.
I'm glad you got a chance to try it out.

troll formerly known as yooper said...

Wow! I would love to win one of these. Pick me, pick me! Please....

Count me in!

terri cleary said...

While I use RoboForm to keep track of passwords, security questions, etc., there are always a few sites that use Flash and RoboForm can't read them. This would definitely help organizing those sites.

ann marie said...

What an excellent idea! I love it and would love to HAVE it! I'll take it, count me in! Thanks for the chance!

lmilla said...

very cool!

aleryan said...

This would be pretty cool to have. I use an address book so I can organize my sites but it would be nice to have something specifically designed for that. Thanks for the giveaway!

sarandipity9702 said...

I so need one of these! I'm always misplacing my little index card crammed full of passwords. This would help me immensely!

Dawn said...

Oh, boy, could I use that. I am always having to reset my passwords because I lose the little papers I've written them on. I try to remember them, but it doesn't work.

Lori said...

I've never seen anything like this, but it would be so handy!!! I am constantly creating new accounts at sites that I already have accounts for just because I can't remember my password or username!

Sara M. said...

How cool! I am forever forgetting passwords. This would be a huge help to me!

The Boojes said...

Interesting...I'd definitely like to check it out. =)

firesheep67 said...

My husband AND I could put this to good use! =;)

girlymom4 said...

This thing looks awesome! I could definitely put this to good use!

Jen said...

I've been wanting one of these for awhile!

Jennifer said...

I am all about the organization baby! Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks!

Denise F said...

Wow! That would really be much more handy than my old notebook!!

Anonymous said...

I would love to have one of these - I can never remember my password and always have to hit the send me my password and username button everytime!

Gabriela said...

I started writing passwords down in my spiral bound notebook many years ago. Even my kids know what I mean when I need my "yellow" notebook. This would be a wonderful solution to being able to add more entries to my notebook. A tip for when you have to change passwords: use a pencil when you write them down. It is neater to erase and re-write than to have to cross out or white out and try to figure out how to write over in pen.

It'd be great to win the giveaway. Thanks!

mindi said...

oooh sweet! i'd love to win! :)

zobars said...

I try to remember them but I cannot and I have a really bad habit of writing them down in bits of paper that are closest to my computer. I am in to win.

PrincessLiz said...

I have the notebook also. It just does not cut it. I need this.

Cammy said...

Hmpf! Here I thought I invented the notebook system. :) This looks like a great idea and a great product. I like the spiral binding so it opens flat.

Rachel said...

Oh wow! I'm constantly forgetting passwords and I hate to find new sites because I'll never remember the username and password. This would be great to have. Count me in!

Harmony said...

This is a pretty handy item! I typically use the same password for everything as I don't have the best memory, not the best security I know. This would be a great way to use more passwords and not have to have them all memorized and it looks nice too. Great giveaway!

The Mom of 'em said...

This would be so loved...and definitely needed! Please enter me!

Jamie said...

Looks like something I could use!

Mrs. Walker said...

Sounds like something this busy mom with no memory power can REALLY use!!!

Southern Mom said...

Pick me!!!!
I am using a small notebook and it is not working for me.

Jen said...

i'm bad about using the same password for everything unless there's some crazy stipulation. i'm a security nightmare! i need this badly!

well read hostess said...

My brain is too full! I could use this!

phoward336 said...

I could use this! Right now, mine are scattered throughout my planner, notebook, little pieces of paper, etc.!

Mrs. Nichole Jordan said...

Oh wow I could SO use one of these!
Doing busniess online means LOTS of passwords! And its scary! hehehe

thanks so much!
Nichole

I could use one of these

insanitycooks said...

I have seen these but wondered if I would actually use it. Thanks for your review.

AmyD said...

Ooo, that does look handy!

hotomom said...

HOw exciting. A little book to help stop losing my mind and passwords. I would like to enter please. Let me just try to remember my google password so I can leave this comment.

Cat said...

That is such a great idea!!! I have so many passwords I'm constantly hitting the "forgot passwsord" link. This would be perfect.

Hugs!!!

thatothrgirl said...

Oh man, I didn't know how much I would need/use this until I started reading your description. As time goes on, and passwords being required are more complicated, my easy ones aren't working anymore - this would be such a help to keep track of all of them.

valerie said...

i never even write my passwords down i am a mess when it comes to passwords i am a mother in need of this great book pleeeaasseee.....

Marla said...

Boy, could I use this. I don't have a blog, but here is my email address: koinonia572001@yahoo.com. Thanks Marla

Jenn said...

Oh how I would love this! I think I may actually buy one for Father's Day because my in-laws have piece of paper near their computer with soooo many things written on it, you can't understand half of them. But I would also love to win one for myself! Thanks for reviewing this.
Jenn

Angie said...

It's an answer to my organizational daily prayer! Pick me, pick me!! LOL

Thanks,
Angie

Beth said...

Wow - what a brilliant idea! I am the WORST with passwords! Thanks for the great review and chance to win!
:-)

Bobbi Jo said...

This book is sooo cool! I would love to have this book. Great review! Love the blog.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Pheobie said...

What a great idea to help organize all those password/user ids out there.

Shannon said...

Well guess what...I have never even thought to keep a record of my passwords.. When I log on to I site I just try my normal 3 passwords and hope one works :)
Would you say this is not the most efficient way possible??? LOL
Shannon

Neek said...

I, too, have the notebook that is quickly filling up with my passwords. What a great idea!

Cheri said...

Looks great and I would really like to use something like that but my husband (who is a network administrator) probably wouldn't go for it. He seems to think I should remember all the passwords but it drives me nuts when I try over and over again until I get kicked off! Maybe I could convince him if I happen to win. :) Thanks for the give-away!

kacey@doodlebugspaper.com said...

Sign me up!! What a treat!!

Sibyl said...

Wow that would be something I think we could use---with 4 computers here--everyone neeing this and that---would be a good way to orginize

Sibyl

*~*~*Stephani*~*~* said...

That's pretty nifty! The onyl passwords I have written down are for billpaying in my bill book. I'm always forgetting the ones to other sites and never thought to write them down! Duh! :)

Ter said...

ooh I have the notebook too, and sometimes I can't find it so then I start another one. haha

I could use this organizer!!

Debbie said...

I hate it when I am on a site typing in a million variations of passwords I use, and then often never find the write combination. This would surely help me!

brandy w said...

oh please,
my husband has all these little sticky notes everywhere and it's driving me crazy

Deanna said...

I am new to getting organized after the smak in the head moment that maybe I should not be the boss of myself! HAHA. Love the organizer! I forget all my ID's/passwords and then I have to re-register all the time! FRUSTRATION!!
