Google Calendar

Have you tried Google Calendar? I've started putting my schedule into it, but also all my to-do items and other events like birthdays. I have it set up so that ten days before a birthday, I get an email reminder to drop the card in the mail. I love being able to drag to-do items around to different days to plan out my schedule.

How do you plan your days and keep track of everything you need to do?


  1. I used to have a wall calendar until I had to move out of my apartment and I missed a doctor's appointment because of it. I now use Google Calendar, too, and I love it. Wherever I go, I can find whatever I need to know. Google makes the niftiest tools!

  2. I share a google calendar with my husband and we both get emails so we know waht is going on. I love how easy it is to use, and you can print it out if you want to. The e-mail reminders are also nice.

  3. I've never heard of this, but I am going to google it right now!

  4. I love Google Calendar because you can set it to send you emails to remind you of your appointments! I use it primarily for reocurring maitenance items and appointment reminders, and then I also use Evernote for more task-oriented things that can be done at any time but do need doing!

  5. Google calendar saved my marriage!
    Okay, maybe not. But things are a lot easier with it. My husband works 24 hour shifts and is genetically unable to keep his own calendar. Now he knows exactly what's going on and I have eliminated the phrase "I was at work so I couldn't check the calendar" . Glad you found it, too!

  6. Sounds like a great idea! I use my Blackberry and that syncs to Outlook on my computer (when I remember to do that part of it...)

    I haven't been over here in a while! I haven't blogged much in the past several months, and I have read blogs even less. Take care. ♥

    PS--where do you get all of the cute antique clip art and silhouettes?
