Calendar Organization

Now that school has started it seems that our calendar is quickly filling up. As the holidays approach our calendar will become even more crowded. I found myself struggling with trying to juggle my calendar organization the other day and this idea popped into my head. It has already helped me tremendously & I hope that it will help you also.

I do use the calendar in my phone, but I am a girl who loves her paper. I have tried going paperless on many things and I just can’t do it. Besides, who wouldn’t want to use a calendar that has my all too cute grandson on it?

 I had several people we were trying to schedule to have over for dinner & a trip that Gene has to make for work that still has no set date.  I got post-it note strips and wrote the names of people we were trying to schedule and Gene’s trip. I placed the strips that I had an idea about a date for on that corresponding date. For those that I wasn’t sure about I put on the bottom of the calendar.

 Because these notes stick & re-stick it made it easy to juggle things as I was trying to schedule them. I am very visual, so having it where I could see it to make changes made things much easier.

 

Once the date was firm, I would then take off the post-it and write it in pencil. I used to write dates in pen, but things can come up and plans will have to be re-scheduled and I hate marking through things, I’m just neurotic that way.

I hope that this tip is helpful to you. Do you have any other ideas/tips on organizing your calendar? Please share them, I love to hear great ideas.
