A family calendar is essential to keeping the whole house organized and on time. Digital is fine but nothing beats writing it down. I am smitten with the large format reusable calendar from TheAvocadoSeed. It is big enough to include everyone's schedule and it's great being able to see a months worth of appointments at a time. A large section on the right is perfect for reminders and notes. I use it for recurring appointments, like weekly swim lessons for the kids. I give every family member a color so it is easy to figure out which appointment is for which person.
