Let’s Calendar That! Planning for the New Year

I know we all may use our phone for date keeping but the power of a visual calendar and writing it down puts life in good order, and alerts family members to upcoming events, practices, birthdays. A physical calendar can be a shared method of organizing our days with everyone in the family.

Here are my favorite means to keeping my year in order and planning ahead:

Wall calendar: More time moms- For those of you with little ones it’s perfect, my girls loved to add the included stickers to mark special days. For those with older tweenangels, the graphics may seem a bit juvenile, but school vacation and exam days were readily seen, and for empty nesters, it’s a cinch to mark upcoming travel and wellness visits.

I love the large blocks in which to write. It is my go to wall calendar, the space allows me to color code for each person’s appts, posts holidays & tracks phases of the moon. The 16-month format is generous and let’s me get my year in order.

Datebook: Get to Work Book by Elise Cripe and it’s more than a datebook.  It is a goal setter, a dream keeper, a reminder, notebook and get-it-done-all-in-one book. With heavy cardboard cover,  I love how the spiral binding allows it to lie flat for writing with high quality paper inside.  

There are lots of add-ons from Elise’s sight and I highly recommend the today bookmark.

Color Coding: Break the code and make the code. This is a trade secret- color coding is the simplest method to separate and designate one person’s details from another on the wall calendar. If Lucy’s schedule is red, then Ricky’s can be blue.

For colored pens on the ready, I thumbtack a bin with these flair pens on the corkboard.

Let these simple solutions make yours a calendar year.

Welcome 2018!

FOR YOUR LIFE, FOR YOUR FAMILY, FOR YOUR HOME, BOTH INSIDE & OUT, LET’S GO!
