As a family of five, remembering the girls after school class schedule can be a challenge. Add in appointments, school events, birthdays, parties, concerts, rehearsals and homework deadlines and I regularly have a pin board loaded with lists and timetables.
I’m a little old-fashioned when it comes to making lists and organising events. I use digital calendars but I like to have a physical calendar to help me see the whole picture.
It can be difficult to fit my family of five’s activities in one small square, so family organiser calendars are the perfect choice. I love the Busy Family Calendar from Quarto Books, because it has space for a family of five to record all their activities on separate lines. Furthermore, the 2018 calendar lasts for 17 months, so I can start it at the beginning of the academic year and keep it going until December 2018 (by which time I may have remembered to buy a new one.)
Additional features are a large calendar grid and handy storage pocket for appointment cards, invitations and such. The charming seasonal artwork by Alison Cole is bright and cheerful to complement it without distraction. I particularly like the additional stickers for birthdays, medical appointments, school breaks etc. as they really help these events stand out on the calendar. Some even have space to add your own content, like chores and meal planners.
The Busy Family Calendar is available in Canada and the US for an rrp. of $15.99 US and $18.99 Canada
