Someone just asked me, “How do you do it all?”  Haha, that is the number one question I get and I am going to tell yall how I do it.  Give you some pointers.   As it goes in this business, busy, busy, busy is the word of the day!  Im traveling from Rosenberg to Webster to Humble back to Rosenberg…..whew, what a day!  We have a total of 9 kids and between them they play 9 sports, I have three older ones that are out of school that are equally as busy and I like to help them all out and be very active in all their lives…so here is how I do it!  Calendars!!!!  They are my life!

First off, I have a great family calendar.  The online and app calendar I recommend is Cozi!   You can find it on your app store and also online at http://www.cozi.com   You can do everything on this app!  Everyone in the family can add stuff to your calendar via the app or going online.  They can go to your shopping list and tell you when you are out of milk or bread or if they need snacks.  There is a to do option to tell them to clean their room and feed the dog, etc.  It even sends reminders to whoever you want to send them too!  This thing is amazing!

Now Im a visual person as well and so I have the Big Happy Planner…..Ive tried every other planner out there and this is by far my favorite!!!!  You can design it however you’d like and it doesn’t fall apart like the others.  Although I think that is mostly because I bought the leather cover for it.  Well worth the money.

For a person who grew up with no money, the sticker books are pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted!  haha…for real.  They have sticker books for everything.   Finance, a Mom sticker book, Fitness, Teachers, Productivity, Im not kidding…every single thing!  They are pretty, they are functional, they will get you organized.

Here is mine for this week….Yes, I bought the daily planner inserts as well cause I LOVE lists!  They have stamps that you can use to stamp your to do list every time you accomplish a task.  Yes Im goofy and I love it!

I would be so lost without those two things.  As time moves on, I will start sharing with you how I organize mine.  I buy all my stuff for the Happy Planner and Create 365 sticker books at Michael’s.  They have the best selection.  Even better than Amazon.  Imagine that.   I even bought these calendars for my girls and we organize them every Sunday together.   I have to show them how to do this so that life is easier for them as they are starting to get really busy with school and work.  Here is Danielle hard at work on hers.

If you buy one and need help, let me know.   Please share with me how you organize yours.  I love seeing everyone else’s calendars!  Get organized moms, it helps so much.   Mom Power!
