Two years ago my mom (age withheld to protect myself) told me that she had access to her work and home calendar in her phone. She went on to tell me she checked her email for both of her work email addresses and her home email address on her phone. Then she told me she had an iPad and a mifi. I asked, What is a mifi? A personal, wireless hot spot. Ummm….Ok.
At that point, I realized it was true, the rest of the world had bypassed me. Here I was, a person who used my computer many hours a day, but all of that organizational stuff was still done with paper and pencil. The truth is, it is still done by paper and pencil. I’m just
old old-fashioned that way, I guess.
However, I am pulling myself along and joining the world of online planning and organization. I am starting with online planning for our family during this school year.
When Home Educating Family offered me a one year subscription to their newest addition to the My Well Planned Day family of products in exchange for a review post, I figured this would be an excellent way to jump in head first.
I love this software already! It is able to be fully customized for each member of our family. Even though D is in public school, I am able to add him to the planner with his school assignments, chores, projects, to do lists, and more. For the girls, who are being homeschooled, I am creating assignments based on their curriculum and the books they will be reading, in addition to the other things for D. Even Samoo has been added along with his chores. I even plan to play around to see if I can keep track of his potty training success with this!
There are also many great home planning tools on the software. These tools include budgets, chores, projects, to do lists, meal planning, customizable calendars, and more.
I am still dragging myself out of the world of paper planners into the online world, but this software has made it so much easier!
One thing that I’d like to see added is a picture component for non-readers. I would especially love to see an option for the most common household chores and the ability to add the pictures of the books used for assignments on the calendars. I would like for the girls to be able to see their personal calendars with picture cues to make it easier for them to know what needs to be done each day.
