HOW CAN I KEEP TRACK OF MY FAM­ILY’S AC­TIV­I­TIES SO I DON’T FOR­GET ANY­THING IM­POR­TANT?

Secrets of Getting Organized - - Sanity Savers -

Hold fam­ily meet­ings, prefer­ably on Sun­day nights, to go through the com­mit­ments and ex­pec­ta­tions for the com­ing week. The kids will know when par­ents might be out late, and par­ents will know the kids need poster board or have an ex­tra prac­tice.

A fam­ily meet­ing doesn’t have to be a for­mal, bring- out­the- gavel-type thing. It can be held over a ca­sual meal like pasta. You can ask, “Jack, what tests do you have?” or “What do you have go­ing on this week?”

De­ci­sion- mak­ing is key! Ask about what sup­plies every­one needs for the week and who is watch­ing the younger kids when Mom will be home late from work, etc. Ev­ery minute of plan­ning will save you 10 min­utes of ex­e­cu­tion, so it’s time well spent.
