How We Organize Our Month!

Yep -  this is the "hub" of our whole household!

May sound simple, but this dry erase board that hangs on our refrigerator keeps us organized!

It looks pretty empty right now, but by the end of the month it is normally covered with writing on it!  This is how my husband and I stay on task and on the same page.  It is in a perfect location, one we look at a thousand times a day! 

Things that get written on our calendar:
  • Birthdays and Anniversaries
  • Kids' activities (swimming, karate, storytime, Little Gym, school concert, etc)
  • Doctor's and Dentist appointments
  • Parties and Events
  • Mom's Night Out
  • Date Night
  • Work Travel Schedules
  • and course, THE DINNER MENU!
I put what is for dinner in the bottom of every block!  I usually plan a week in advance.  Putting what is for dinner makes it easy for my husband to have dinner prepared and eliminates the need for eating out "just because".  So this less than $10 dry erase board investments, saves us hundreds of dollars every year!
