It may be the height of summer but pretty soon those lazy August days are going to turn into autumn. Now is the time to get organized.  Between school, work, and managing a household, it is often hard to remember who needs to be where at what time, and when different things are due. That’s why every family needs a household calendar.  Maybe you already have one on your computer or your cell, but having one big family calendar that everyone can see and add to is an organizational lifesaver.

We love this do it yourself calendar from Martha Stewart. There’s something so classic and modern about a chalkboard calendar and making it yourself ensures it will the prefect size for your household.

Be prepared this chalkboard calendar takes a bit of time to create, but it’s easy to do and will save time in the future. Don’t want to paint on the wall? No problem.
