I'm not sure many of us could effectively function without some type of family calendar. Kids' activities, work commitments, board meetings, school events; there's so much to do that most of us can't possibly keep it all in our heads.
There are so many ways to keep it all organized: on line, paper planners and wall calendars to name a few. Trial and error seems to be the best way to figure out what works best for you. I've tried many different things and for me a planner works best for me. I wish I could keep everything on my phone and be done with it but it just doesn't work for me.
What type of family calendar do you use?
