What Works For Me 21/365 Getting My Ducks In A RowPosted: January 21, 2012
Yesterday was the day to get my act together for the week ahead. I planned meals, wrote a shopping list, did a small grocery shop with boys and organised clothes. I did a green chicken curry last night so there was a serve of that left over for one of my lunches and I snagged a couple of spare buttermilk and blueberry pancakes from this morning. I have few different things to help with scheduling. On my computer I use iCalendar with colour coded events for every member of the family, meals and Little Athletics. I print this out and put it up in the kitchen each week. Because all my technology doesn’t link up I use a paper diary as well and I put some things on my phone if I am on the run. I think the iCalendar printout is the most useful thing from a family perspective because they are looking at it and seeing what is happening. It will be even better when I get my little kitchen notice board tidied up but it is all a work in progress.
