Busy parents barely have so much to keep track of, including work tasks, necessary errands, your kids’ schedules, meal planning and many other things we’ve forgotten. It can be difficult to get everyone on the same page. When your partner or kids ask what’s going on this week, you can direct them to the family calendar. There they will find everything that’s on the docket for the week, and it’ll hopefully save you from answering so many questions. It’ll also free up your memory a bit and allow you to focus on other things, knowing that your planner is all up to date. That’s why we rounded up the best weekly family calendars and planners for you.
Among our picks is one paper planner and two dry-erase calendars. Our paper pick is pretty and pink, with spaces for meal planning and goals. You might want to keep the planner out of little kids’ hands, unless you want their doodles to end up all over your to-do list. The dry-erase board selections are flat magnetic boards, so you won’t have to worry about the planner falling and crashing on the floor. These boards also conveniently come with sets of dry-erase markers. Whichever one you choose, you’ll be on your way to getting your family on the same page.
