Many office calendars use the Week-at-a-glance calendar set-up. You may find this works perfectly for your home particularly during those times when the kids are participating in sports or other activities. Gather together all those activity schedules and any other papers or calendars containing information for the upcoming week. Then type on your computer a list for the week giving the information for the activities happening on each day. If typing out the calendar is not something you have time to do, you may also simply write out the events on a blank weekly calendar. You can post this calendar on the refrigerator where it was easily visible to everyone.
Monthly versus Weekly:
If you find using a monthly calendar system versus a weekly calendar system no problem. Just remember when using monthly you need to give the calendar a weekly check to make sure that you continue to add all new events that might arise. By doing a weekly check you will insure that the activities don’t get overlooked and little Johnny is left sitting at band camp at 8PM all alone.
