I have finally found a calendar that helps me keep track of my entire family's schedule! I bought this last year and am getting ready to order one for 2012.
What I love:
- There are multiple columns for each family member.
- This is an 18-month calendar.
- Very sturdy and the perfect size - not too big (though I wish it were a little smaller, if it were, I don't think I could fit everything that I need), not too small.
There is nothing I can think of that I dislike; however, I wish there was a pocket in the front to hold notes, coupons, pages torn out from the "to do" section, etc. I just put everything in the front, but it sometimes falls out when I take it out of my purse. Also, I wish the columns included times during the day instead of just "morning", "afternoon" and "evening" so that I didn't have to write this in, although, again, I guess the book would need to become larger to fit all that in. Not a big deal - I just write the time in.
Tip: I write everything in pencil so that it can be easily erased if need be. Keeps the whole thing looking a lot nicer and more organized.
I would highly recommend this for any working mom with more than one kid and a very busy schedule! I have been looking for years for something that would work and found that I had to color code whatever I did. Now I just go to the date and column and voila! Done.
