Organizational Calendar Planning Tips to Make Life Easier

Best Monthly Planners work better with our easy calendar planning tips that can help you to get the most organization out of your Best Monthly Planners.

Tip #1: Color-Code Family Members on Your Calendar

If you have several activities that you need to keep track of, color code them and only use that color for that specific item. For example, I have 6 children … my calendar always has 6 different colors used on it. Each child has their own color and I write down their activities in my planner with a specific color for each of their schedules. So, for example: Joshua has a blue pen, Justin has a green pen, and etc. By color coding each of my children’s activities with “their” color, I can see, at a glance, exactly who is doing what and when.

Tip #2: Use an Organizational Planner With Tabs

By using an organizational planner that has tabs on the pages, you will save time. If you have a planning calendar that has tabs, it will help you to quickly find the page that you are looking for without flipping through page after page to find what you need.

Tip #3: Get a Custom-Made Planning Calendar

If you have specific things that require doing on the same days each month, you might want to consider having a yearly calendar made just for you. Handwriting just the usual monthly tasks can fill up calendars very quickly with handwriting.

I started having custom calendars made ‘just for me’ each year many years ago when my children were babies. This has worked very well for me because I am not a tiny handwriter and, once my calendar is created with all of my routine monthly tasks, my calendars used to be completely full and I never had the space to write the ‘extras’ that always cropped up. Now, I get to use a neat and clean looking monthly planner that still gives me the additional space to write in all of the monthly ‘extras’.

Tip #4: If You Don’t Like It, You Won’t Use It

Don’t waste your money on calendars that are hard to use. The reason for this is, if you don’t like it, you won’t use it. If you get a huge, fancy monthly planner that is too complex for you, you won’t use it … so, why waste your money? Get a simple monthly planning calendar that helps to keep you focused on the important stuff only.
