In part one of the Organizing Your Life series we will talk about to do lists and calendars. As a work from home Mom I feel sometimes as though I have 10 plates spinning at once. If I don’t write something down the moment I think of it…I most definitely forget. I stay organized with the help of three things: Google calendar, the app Wunderlist and my Whitney English Day Designer.
First, I have several Google calendars. One for all of our family events and appointments that my husband needs to be aware of. Another for menu planning. And another for birthdays & anniversaries with reminders a couple of weeks in advance so that I may pick up a gift. I write something down here as I soon as I commit to something. And then really only glance at this again as I have my weekly planning session and transfer appointments, events, and dinner into my Day Designer.
