Time Management Tip

I am weirdly obessed with time management.
I'm not saying I'm always punctual...I just like scheduling things.
I'm a weirdy.

But you already knew that.
Here's how many people have something like this to keep track of family events:

This works great for many families, and Mr. Free and I tried this too when we were first married.
But here was my dilemna. When making plans and getting deadlines I often wasn't at home. So often I would forget to put it on the calendar on the fridge, and then when it was time for us to let's say, bring breakfast to Sunday School...we would forget.

So here's what I do.

I use my cell phone.

No, it's not a fancy iPhone. I wish. But it does the job.
Every cell phone should have a calendar feature.
So when someone asks you to bring breakfast for Sunday School, or you have a Family Birthday party you can plug it in on your cell!
Most people have their cell phones on them at all time, so it really is helpful!
I also do my meal planning on my cell phone, so when I look at each date I see what events are scheduled and what I'm making for dinner!
How 21st century is that?!
Does anybody else already do this or have another time management tip?


  1. I really like Google calendar. I've been using it constantly! I can make as many separate calendars as I want or need, and I can share them with other people. My husband and I share calendars via Google so that his plans show up on my calendar and vice versa. With such busy schedules, it's a great way to keep up with each other!


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
