I think I devised this system shortly after MaM was born in 2005. All of a sudden, I had a hard time keeping track of appointments (among other things) and needed a system that was easy and fairly fool-proof.
Before becoming a mom, I’d keep any appointment cards in my wallet for safe keeping. Yes the info was also entered into my calendar, but I like to keep the actual card too. I like the fact that the office hours/phone numbers are printed right there.
After becoming a mom, I became more scattered. Enter the magnetic photo holder.
I started a photo holder for each person in our family, and as we schedule appointments for the dentist, doctor, eye doctor, etc, I put them in the holder according to date. This way, the appointment coming up is there, at eye level, every time I go to the fridge. Once the appointment is complete, the card is thrown away, and then I’m reminded about the next one on that person’s schedule.
How do you keep track of your families appointments? Please leave a comment and share–I’m always looking for tips and tricks!
