Karen at Between The Worlds is hosting Organized Thursdays. This week the theme is CALENDARS. Having tried virtually every system at one time or another, I’ve simplified with Mom’s Family Calendar by Sandra Boynton. I have it hanging on the refrigerator, by the desk where it is visible and readily available to update.
It has column for each of us where I pencil in daily activities. At the beginning of the year I filled in all the birthdays and my intent is to buy cards that I’ll have ready to mail for each one.
I also use my computer to store information and send me reminders when something is coming up. Windows Live offers a consolidated mail service with a great calendar program and other handy gadgets!
