Tip of the Day

In an effort to become a fun blog to read, I decided to start giving out some tips on Thursdays. These will just be some tips about things like how to be happier, easier ways to do things, cooking tips, etc. that I find or have that I think might help people. If you have a tip you want to be included, send it to me or leave it in a comment on the blog. On to our first Tip of the Day:

Today's tip is an easier life tip

Use a color coding system, and have one calendar for all events, with different colors for each person to be able to easily identify who has activities when.

An easy way to keep track of your calendar and be able to access it from any computer with internet is to use Google Calendars. We use this at our house and it is great because you can invite people to events, have different colors for each person on the calendar, make notes about the activity, have additional people able to add events or view events, and sync it with computers and phones as well as being able to look it up from any computer that can go to Google.

You can also accomplish this on a paper calendar by using different color pens for each person or highlighting each person's activities with a different colored highlighter.

Life becomes much easier when everything is on a central location.
