I would appreciate y'alls' "best practices" regarding where and how to keep reference information that family members need acess to, such as practice schedules, lunch menuss, important phone numbers, appt dates, bus routes, dates of events we might attend but have not yet committed, (e.g., school play runs for 3 days, but we don't know which one we will go to), church bulletin, membership cards we share. I have had one pocket on frig for all this and a 12 month calendar with hard landscape items on it that are pertinent to all family. The advantage of the single pocket is that when you look for one item in the pocket you are forced to thumb through the others, resulting in discarding out of date items and cueing of ones of interest but it is time consuming and messy. Further, sometimes a well-intending family person puts in new schedule of events in the pocket (e.g., choir practices) but fails to alert me. Also, what is a good age to start the GTD practices with kids? Ours refuse to put into their "planners" anything but homework and the teachers want due dates for projects, not start dates or benchmark dates. And, the planners the school provides lack weekends! Since the kids have to buy really high powered calculators, maybe they could use Palms with calculator software.
No announcement yet.
family-shared paper stuff and related?
