So much of holiday stress comes from the feeling like you’re constantly overwhelmed and behind the “eight ball” or should I say “cheese ball.”
Day 1 – An easy to use, no frills, quick reference calendar – no reading glasses necessary!
This will become your holiday scheduling bible. Do this EVEN if you use the calendar in your phone. It’s a quick reference other members of your family can view or that you can bring out at dinner time to discuss with everyone.
Each night just before heading off to bed, you’ll update the commitments on your portable paper calendar to your wall calendar, your phone, or the small checkbook sized calendar you carry in your purse or briefcase.
The full sized sheets allow you to include more information in the “date square” and also provide extra space in the margins or on the back if you need to scribble down extra notes. Paper calendars also allow you to take notes at a parent’s meeting or church event, etc., without the others around you thinking you’re “texting” and not paying attention.
Additionally, you can pull these sheets out when you’re on the phone and do a quick check of you schedule while still having a conversation.
BONUS – if you’re over 40 and need reading glasses to check the calendar on your phone, you probably won’t need them to check this larger calendar. 🙂
To find a printable calendar, just Google Search: “Printable November 2012 Calendar” you’ll get lots of options. I like this one because it has lines in the squares. You can choose to print it in portrait view and leave space underneath for more notes or, you can print it in landscape and fill the whole page with the calendar. http://getfreecalendars.com/calendars/2012/november-2012-calendar-printable/editable-november-2012-calendar.jpg
