Each year as we start the new year, we think of ways to make a change and improve our lives. Did you know that organizing is one of the top three goals each year? Throughout the month of January, I will be offering 31 tips to help you have Your Most Organized Year Ever. Implement just one of these tips, tools, techniques or tweaks this year.
Families have a lot going on! There are dates for school, dates for church and dates for volunteering. It’s too much to keep in our heads. How do we track all this information?
Your family calendar creates communication, coordination and cohesiveness. It’s one place you see all the information together. Your family works as a team to be sure you are arriving on time as well as prioritizing which activities you are attending. It gives everyone a starting point to communicate about priorities.
Is it wise to keep two calendars, your own and your family calendar? Coordination is required. For the parents, it’s important to have all the dates in one place. For the kids, it’s important for them to track and see their own responsibilities. This redundancy can help remind everyone about upcoming activities and be sure your schedule runs smoothly. Make this Your Most Organized Year Ever with your family calendar.
