  • Big wall calendar! diaries i forget to check, digital diaries i am even worse with my big calendar on the wall of my kitchen is amazing, helps me be organised at a glance

  • I’ve always used a calendar on the wall. It’s easy to use and can always be seen

  • I like to use both also, cheers.

  • I also use a combination of both. my phone calendar and a paper one. The paper one also lets my husband know what is going on in the family otherwise he never remembers the appointments when I tell him.

  • I use the calendar on my mobile phone. Every different event has an emoji, so at a glance I can see what it relates to. Every entry gets an alarm set to it as well, so that it reminds me of upcoming events.

  • A big planner calendar for the whole family works well.

  • I have both this year, for the first time in years. I was just using my iphone calendar and notes, but recently had a scare with breaking my phone, so am going back to good old paper for most things this year!

  • I use a combination of both. The digital calendar in my phone is linked to all my outlook accounts and I also use a diary since I can’t take my phone into my workplace. The diary is a useful backup when I’m out and about and/or I can’t get wifi

  • I do a printed monthly calandar on a4 and I clip it together with a bull dog clip and then blue tack it to the wall in the kitchen and I use that to do meal planning, kids activities, hubby’s appointments, work stuff – general everyday use that has everything in it.

    I also use a personal a5 week to a page planner that fits in my handbag which has all the same info as the a4 family on in it so I don’t double up with appointments etc.

    Would love to go digital but I am a stationary addict so paper and pens it is

  • I do both! We have an online family calendar that is my reminder for events. But I have a paper diary calendar that I also use for to do lists in a day as well. Some months i don’t use it but others I do.

  • I like having a wall calendar and the calendar in my phone.

  • I’ve been using my phone calendar, but have a paper diary this year. I will be using a combination of paper and phone this year. Am also looking to start Bullet Journalling.

  • Paper calendar at our house :)
    We have one stuck on the fridge. I put everything on it. The kids and my husband know to look on the calendar to see where we are all at.
    I don’t usually make solid plans out and about , I just wait until I am home to confirm anything.
    This works well for us. :)

  • Just make sure you choose 1 and stick with it, consistency is the key. My husband and I use our phones but have linked google accounts so we share calendars this works for us

  • A combination of all is great but one was remember to sync all.
    On Thurs we had a day of no power (work being carried out in the area on different days by Ausgrid) our wall calendar/planner came in quite handy.
