Family Information Center

Time to get organized!

With the new school year fast approaching, it makes sense to use the last few weeks of August to prepare yourself for the upcoming busy-season.

Has your family considered using an Information Center to help with the transition?

It’s a centrally located (usually at a garage entry door or front door) place to find out what’s happening in the family.

So, what’s in a Family Information Center?
1. Calendar. Sure, everyone has one on their iPhone, but there should be a visible calendar that lists family obligations, parties, school and sporting schedules for everyone.

2. The house-hold chore chart. Nobody likes it, but it makes the house run a lot smoother!

3. A place for the household shopping list, coupons, receipts and rebates.

4. In-Boxes for each family member. These in-boxes will be for permission slips, personal bills, party invitations, or general mail.

5. Finally, a white board! These is simply an indispensable tool of communication for a busy family.

Happy August!
