The beginning of the year is the perfect time to organize your calendar and that is what I did this week.
In order to get vacation time requested, it is important to figure out annual doctor's appointments, big projects and trip dates early. If your house is anything like mine, you have information coming at you in a million different directions. On paper, my calendar look like this:
Not the best system for someone who is dyslectic like me so, I use Google Calendar. It is color coded for each member of my family and/or by activity (i.e. gardening, work, cleaning, etc.). You can import calendars too. I have all my U.S. holidays on there and sports schedules so we know when and where the Packers are on. I even have an up-to-date weather forecast on my calendar so, I know if I need to move stuff around for a pending snow storm or if we need a plan B for outdoor activities. I meal plan on my calendar and I even started an editorial calendar for my blog. It is all right there in one spot! I love it!
Believe me, I need to make every second of my day count and Google Calendar helps me to do it:-) How do you keep track of your schedule?
Disclosure: I was not paid by Google in any way shape or form for this review. I just really, really love my Google Calendar and when I find something that works for me, I shout it from the rooftops:-)
