Lots of lists, a giant dry erase calendar and several linked calendar apps.

Prioritize and keep things simple.

A lot of calanders. I have a color coded one in my bedroom for me, my fiance, and my 3 sons.

Since I also live with my parents and we involve them a lot and they help, we ordered a special calander that you fill in the names and everyone has a slot on each day. As long as everyone writes their activites, we barely even have to ask what someone is doing. Just check the calendar. That one is hanging where everyone in the house can see it.

I used to use my phone calander more, before it updated, lol. I still have some things in there, just not as reliant on it as I was.

I am the main one in the house who does scheduling so organization is a big thing. Especially when it comes to 4 adults and 3 children.

I usually end up taking it a day at a time and we also use a wall calendar to keep up with work schedules and various activities.
