I love a great bargain, but whenever I see notebooks and crayons for 10 cents...I realize that the start of school is drawing near! Back to School typically means back to schedules. Keeping track of piano lessons, early dismissals from school, soccer practice, birthday parties and play dates can be a bit overwhelming. Yet alone, keeping track of parents' work schedules, volunteer commitments, and hopefully vacation schedules! Before you know it, the refrigerator is plastered with schedules! One solution to the daunting task of "scheduler” is a user-friendly online tool, Google Calendar.
Google Calendar is a free online calendar service. At a glance, you can view your calendar by day, week, or month. To add an event to your calendar, you simply need to click on the date and fill in the event details. One fabulous feature is the ability to repeat an event. Perhaps your child attends SoccerTots every Friday for 3 months. Google calendar allows you to repeat this event automatically. The calendar also has a printable option so you can still hang your schedule on the fridge.
Hopefully this online tool can save your time and keep you organized! To learn more about Google Calendars and to how to set up an account, simply go to calendar.google.com.
