just wondering if anyone used a control journal / family planner?
if so...what do you have in it and do you actually use it?
i have one.....it is on my computer though.
i keep sections for:~cleaning lists: daily, weekly, monthly/seasonally~addresses~party planning (for the kiddos b-days)~master packing lists
i also made a holiday control journal...just using a 3-ring binder...to help me plan / prepare for the holiday season.
it has sections for :
~home management: revised cleaning list, meal planning, etc.~party planning: calendars to plan, family fun activies for us to do, event we are hosting or attending and menus for those .~gift giving: brainstorming ideas, list of who and what my budget is, card list, etc.
I used to keep a journal of sorts when I was decorating cakes. I'd write the details that someone wanted, draw a sketch of either what they wanted or what I came up with, etc.
I have a calendar and I write the kids sports and Dr. appointments. We have a budget on the computer we use...
I have a planner and a giant white board. the planner gets appointments and meal plans and other things in it. the white board is great for reminders between family members, messages and other randomness
No, I don't.. but i keep saying i need too.. :o)
I don't keep a control journal, but I set all kinds of reminders on my iPhone....if I didn't, I'd forget everything! I also keep a flylady list on my computer.
we have a giant white board too...and a big cork board above that. the white board we use for messages and i write the kids 'to do' list there too...so they see it as soon as they come in from school.
the cork board usually has flyers, school newsletters or some kind of junk on it.

I do have one from the Flylady, but I haven't used it in a while.
