Week 3 of 52 Weeks To Become Less Homemaking Challenged

Each Saturday this year, I will be posting a weekly habit.  During my 31 day's series, I talked about a lot of theoretical and how to create purpose in your home.  It was about you figuring things out, making goals, and knowing why you are doing the work, now it is time to put them into action.  Each week I will add one new habit to help you become less homemaking challenged.  The objective of this?  By the end of the year, for us to have applied several of these habits in our daily/weekly routine and be less homemaking challenged by the end of the year!

#3: Keep a Calendar

Calendars are really important to life.  Even if you aren't a "schedule" person, they are important.  We have a family calendar that hangs on the inside of one of our cupboards.  Not everything is on it, and by that I mean things we do EVERY week are a given and not on the calendar (such as going to church on Sunday, or my usual office hours).  You can use whatever type of calendar works for you, a paper one like this, or this for your personal use and then a wall one, perhaps even a whiteboard or chalkboard calendar is more your taste.  Whatever your style, find one that all adults and children who are old enough can read and know what is going on, and make sure you have one that travels with you!.  This way, you can prevent scheduling a late date night when you have soccer pictures the next morning and have to have the kids photo ready and out the door by 7am.  Also, don't forget to sync your personal and family calendars, if you are a digital person that happens automatically, but I'm a pen and paper person, so I do mine by hand.
