Works For Me Wednesday

I was going to post about my fabulous homework basket that I put together for H but it was already posted! (I guess I wasn't the first one to think of it!) so now I have to think of something else, what works for me....
think.....

think....

ah yes my calendars.... I think I may need some sort of support group! they are everywhere and yet I still seem to forget stuff all the time!! here are some pictures of them,

This one is at my desk, I write the due dates for bills as they come in and black them out after they get paid, this way when L asks "hey when is whatever do?" I don't have to look threw the stack I just have to look at the calender. this started after 2 late payments!


This one is on the side table right now, its my Avon stuff, I know its empty I always forget to write in it even though there are things I have to remember. usually this one goes in my Avon bag.

This one is my most used one, it is on the fridge, it has the menu for the week, pay days and all the things that we have planned, birthday parties, Field trips, Dr appointment all that, I know it looks empty right now, I just changed it over so it has the last 3 weeks of Sept and the first 2 weeks of Oct.

This one is in the kitchen too, although I am not sure of its purpose, I think I am going to take it down, as soon as I can find something to put in its place.

This one is H's its in her room, she uses it to write important 8 year old stuff, like when she gets her allowance, and when her library books are due.

For more great tips, be sure to check out works for me Wednesday over at rocks in my dryer!!

I love the idea of putting due dates for bills on the calendar - I am forever trying to remember due dates.

Great idea on having a calendar for bill due dates. I think I will get a small one to put in our computer armoire. I love my BIG calendar that I keep on my kitchen wall. You can never be too "on top of things".

You are not the only one who makes use of a lot of calendars. Right now, I think I have three that I use, and I am thinking about adding at least two more. I definitely need one in the kitchen. I have a desk calendar that I use to record appointments and bill due dates. Then I have a planner that I keep in a notebook to record God know's what, but it is well written on. I have a school calendar that I keep in my book bag to record my assignments. But I definitely need one to keep up with my meal plans. If you ever find the help you are looking for, please refer me. :)

It's a program that helps you get organized. It has a calendar, menu planning, daily routine, all sorts of great things. You can download a free 30 day trial. I'm going to try it and see what I think.
