Making a Happy Home Monday- Staying on top of schedules

Its getting hard to keep up with my family. (And I have 1 that is not even walking!) We seem to be all moving in different directions all at the same time! Doctors appointments, preschool open houses, girls movie night, my husbands work schedule, play dates, lunches. WHEW!

I noticed that my basic calendar was not cutting it. Things would get overlooked and I would miss things written in tiny dark corners. It made me go crazy.. not a far stretch I assure you. :)

I discovered this in my bargain bin at Kroger's.....
There is a line each week for each member of my family. We each have our own space in which to see what is going on with us. All you have to do is follow the line and wahlah.... you know what is going on with everyone! There is also a handy pocket at the bottom in which to keep whatever you may need that month such as reminders etc. ( I keep my weekly Michael's and JoAnn fabric coupons in there.) It keeps me from acting like a crazy person.... and that makes everyone a little happier!
