When it comes to family life, it can be so easy to feel overwhelmed with it all, from school, travel, work, clubs, social life, shopping, life admin; there is so much to take into consideration, it’s very easy to forget important date or miss an appointment.
By having a family planner whiteboard, you can take some of that stress away. You can easily log birthdays, doctor’s visits, school and any extra curricular activities with ease. Everyone can see what is happening and when. Aside from key dates, it can help to organise chores and household tasks and even meals as you can plan your shopping around your family’s routine.
Here are the key benefits of using a family whiteboard planner:
Better time management
Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, a work-at-home parent, a working parent or a studying parent, there is always the need to feel like you are managing your time better. It can be so easy to fall into a trap of feeling like you’ve done nothing the whole day, or even the week! By utilising a family planner whiteboard, you can start to breakdown your time into reasonable chunks of time.
These can be split up into work, life admin, housework, and leisure. Once you can see the time on a planner in front of you, will be feel better about how you manage your time on the day-to-day.
Record important dates
Important dates can be anything from birthdays, to fundraising events, parties, after-school activities and classes, school holidays and visits, even bin days. A family planner whiteboard, and even a weekly planner board can be vital tools to help highlight these dates and ensure everyone is aware of them.
If there is something that the whole family needs to be involved in, having something visible and concrete on a whiteboard is the perfect way to ensure no one is missing the information.
When you have so much going on, it can be very easy to feel anxious and overloaded by it all. By having important dates and significant events listed on a family planner whiteboard, you can free up your mind to other things.
You don’t need to worry about forgetting, because the family planner whiteboard will remind you. Even listing something as simple as your to-do list or household chores will alleviate stress as you can see it there and ‘hopefully’ start to cross items off as and when they occur.
Helps future planning
Particularly with a weekly planner board, if you know the schedule of your family members you can more easily schedule things according to their timetable. No more running around or checking with others whether certain dates can work, when you can easily view when people are free and when people are not free. At TeacherBoards, our planner whiteboards are available in weekly or monthly layouts, allowing you to plan your time more effectively, booking in appointments, key dates and even holidays!
Quick reference for availability
If someone in the household gets an invitation to an event, a family planner whiteboard easily indicates whether that person can attend said event. Nobody likes backing out of an event they’ve already committed to it, so to have a family planner whiteboard you can easily see whether you are available before you ‘accept with pleasure’ or ‘regretfully decline’.
Family planner whiteboards are an indispensable tool to achieving a better organised family life. As with all organisational tools, there are ways to make it more effective and suitable to you and your needs. Consider using different colours for different categories, such as work/home/school/social. Keep the planner in a prominent and readily available space, so everyone has an easy viewpoint and easy access. Schedule regular family meetings to look through the planner to ensure everything is up-to-date and nothing ‘new’ has cropped up unexpectedly and nothing has been cancelled.
