How to Use Your Family Organizer
A family organizer is a great organizational tool because
it helps you pull together all the big elements of your
family life, consolidate them in one place, and easily find
and share them when needed. A family organizer can
help you organize and keep track of calendars, school
papers, important phone numbers, lists, birthday party
plans, holiday plans, emergency plans, and family medical
Setting one up will take a little investment of time, but
in the end is well worth it if you do it right and use it
consistently. Here are some tips to how to set your
family organizer up and how to use it on a consistent basis.
- Think through how you would like
to use your organizer and what items to include before
filling in any forms or creating tabs.
- Start with the most important
things first such as emergency phone numbers, calendars,
or school papers and then once these items are completed
move on to the other important elements.
- Keep your family organizer in a
central place where you can see it and access it
everyday. You will be much less likely to use the
organizer if it is tucked away in a drawer or cupboard
where you don't see it.
- Add a reminder to your calendar or
do list every week to clean out old papers, update your
calendar, and add new items or information.
- Rather than sitting down all at
once to set up your organizer think about scheduling
some time on your calendar over a few days to work on
setting it up. It may be a little less
overwhelming this way and easier to find small blocks of
time on your calendar rather than large chunks of time.
- Make it your own! Every
family is different and has their own unique needs and
circumstances, so do hesitate to make your family
organizer work best for you by adding additional
sections, eliminating unnecessary sections, or tweaking
What to Include in Your Family Organizer
Every family will have different needs, but the most
common things most families will include in their family
organizer are the following.
- Having a central calendar where everyone can find it
and update it is key in a busy family. The
advantage to including the calendar in your family
organizer rather than keeping it separate is that you
can also keep reference items such as birthday
invitations, school flyers, event invitations, field
trip forms right along with the calendar so that you can
easily reference them for additional details.
Storing reference items and the calendar in two
different places requires additional time and can lead
to frustration if you can't easily find them. Keep
it simple and easy and store them together in a family
- Emergency Phone
Numbers and Contacts - Believe it or not having a
paper copy of emergency phone numbers and contacts is
still important in this day and age of smart phones and
computers. Paper copies of these important phone
numbers are really important to have on hand for
babysitters and young children who don't know how to use
a cell phone or computer. It is also important to
have a paper copy of emergency phone numbers or in case
you lose your phone or lose power.
Contacts - Having a list of regular household
contacts makes it just easier for everyone in the home
to find the contact information and take ownership for
call them. Whether it is calling the plumber,
ordering pizza, or finding a babysitter, make it easy on
everyone and include these important contact details in
a central location.
Passwords - Family organizers are a great way to
keep track of your favorite websites and the passwords
required to log in.
- School &
Extra-Curricular Papers - Schools are trying hard
to cut down on the amount of paper that comes home with
the kids, but even with these efforts kids still bring
home a lot of paper. Use your family organizer to
store important school papers like schedules, school
policies, and carpool schedules.
- Birthday Party
& Holiday Plans - A family organizer is a GREAT
place to keep track of all your birthday party and
holiday plans, recipes, checklists, and notes.
Keep it all consolidated in one place so that you can
easily update the plans and reference them when needed.
- Family Medical
Information - Use your family organizer to keep
track of important family medical information such as
allergies, immunizations, prescriptions, and
medications. This is great information to have on
hand in case of an emergency or for the babysitter.

great place to keep track of
household chores and projects. Use the
organizer to keep track of checklists, notes, fabric
swatches, paint colors, or garden plans.

of and save meal plans. This will also help you
save time when grocery shopping and preparing meals.
