    Default Family planner/diary/calendar/organiser

    So DS1 starts school next year, DS2 will start either 3 year old kinder or day care, I'm possibly going back to uni full time or I'll go back to work part time, and DH is a runner and participates in a lot of events plus he works FT so I think we're going to have a busy schedule (to say the least).

    Currently to keep on top of things I use my phone calendar which is fine because I'm a SAHM and deal with all the kids' stuff but that will change next year. I want a central place where both DH and I can see at a glance what's on and be able to both add stuff as needed.

    Hit me up with your ideas and what you use. I think I prefer a calendar or wall planner type thing rather than a diary but I'm open to anything that will help keep us organised.

    I have a big calendar up near the computer, where everyone can see and I write everything down as helped heaps dp is useless when it comes to remembering anything

    Places like KikkiK (I think that's what it's called) sell family wall calendar with 4 or 5 columns so one for each person. My sister uses one and it works well for them, sits on there toilet wall so I often see there schedule

    (I'd probably not keep it in the dunny tho...)

    Google calendar. You put each person stuff in a different colour. You share your calenders so all of you always have yours and everyone else in family calender on your phone's and computers.

    Subbing! I'd love a whiteboard style planner for the whole family to see. And I second KMart for diaries & organisers

    I stumbled across a website called scattered squirrel, I like that it offers a range of formats, the A3, (which is set up so you print it as 2 a4's) works well for us.

    I print out each month and we have it pinned up in the pantry. So its visible and we can all refer to it, so we know who is where and when!
