A Family Calendar can help #UnclogYourDay

#UnclogYourDay $1000 Giveaway

Blogging, work, child care, vacations, appointments, school functions, conference calls, football, concerts, play dates, parties and field trips – these are just a few of the things we need to keep track of on a daily basis.

We are a busy family. There is a lot to do and it’s easy to get tripped up and forget something. A family calendar is something I’ve been utilizing for many years. Ours is posted in a central location (the kitchen) where we can all see it at a quick glance, and also add things as they come up. There is no excuse to not know what is on the agenda for the day, week or month. The key to keeping a family calendar is discipline. It doesn’t work if you don’t update or read it. Even the youngest members of the family (who may not be able to read yet) can recognize birthdays, beach days, dentist appointments and sleepovers by using a sticker system. Small visual identifiers can be used to keep the non-readers involved and prepped for the upcoming week.

Along with the family calendar I have my own personal planner that is accessible from my smart phone, iPad, and laptop. If I’m ever somewhere without one of those things (which is highly unlikely) I’m able to access it from any computer. I can schedule blog posts, phone calls, reviews and deadlines in one spot. With the family agenda plastered on the kitchen wall and my personal to-do list at my fingertips, there is no reason to stumble through a day.
