How Do You Keep Your Family Organized?

I have a calendar that I write everything in, and it works pretty good for me. Was wondering what other moms used to make sure everyone is where they are supposed to be?

  • Yes, we had a big family calendar. Every committment got written down on it (in pencil!). I made sure everyone was on time for all the activities, although once a schedule was established the kids would always be changed and ready to go.

  • I have a large family calender yes, but then there is a priority board, white wash, where I keep the top ten things that must be done by each family member. Its like a score board for us. It is kept between the front door and walk way to the kitchen so either way you have to see it through out the day!

  • A Large dry erase board on the fridge... I write on it weekly, and since things change so much it's easy to clean off, and keep track... A calendar doesn't work, it just gets misplaced....

  • My blackberry PDA has been a life saver. Before that I used to have planners, binders, etc...not very good for the environment or efficient for carrying around. Now I have everything easily accesible in one small phone! I just wish I'd figured it out sooner, would have saved me the last few years of trouble!

  • I would be lost without my calender, everything gets written down on it and sometimes I have used a different color sharpie for each kid if there are multiple kids having things going on in one day

  • I use the calendar on my computer. I can set different colors for different activities/people and to automaticaly send me alerts. Plus, I can put "post-its" on my main screen for extra reminders.

  • I like a large calendar because then you can see everything at a glance. I also have a datebook for my purse- the electronic thing just is not big enough for a quick visual.
