    To-do lists. I feel accomplished when I can cross things off.

    I use the big family planner calendar – everyone has access to it. Lists help me make the most of where I need to go and what I need to get. Try to make just one trip and combine everything together.

    An organized closet makes me happy. I separate clothes by type and organize each type by color so if I need a blue short sleeved shirt I know exactly where it is and how many I have :)

    I keep a shared Google calendar with my boyfriend for our work and social schedules. Very easy and coordinated because we can both edit it at any time.

    I have a very large calendar so there's room for everyone's activities, and i keep a grocery list posted next to it so i can check off what's needed as necessary. My family also makes meal choices once a week for the next week, so I don't need to think about it too much, and I never have that 4:00 panic about what's for dinner!

  6. My organization tip that keeps us all sane is my phone! Between the lists, the calendar on it & the ability to take photos of things I need to remember it is our life line for sure. I keep track of addresses and phone numbers too. I don't know what I'd do without it at this point. I even use it these days for coupons. :-D

    I keep a paper calendar on the side on the cabinet that is in the doorway of the kitchen so I walk past it a million times a day so it's impossible to miss it.

    for every album i add to my itunes library, i put in the year, album artwork, and i put where the artist is from in the 'comment' field. having an organized music library is amazing, and it's pretty slick to be able to pull up all my french 60s music whenever i like.

    Lots of lists for things that need to be done as well as maximizing the storage spaces.

    I use a combination of Outlook reminders for birthdays and events we've commited to and paper for grocery lists and to do lists. This bamboo dry erase would be perfect!
