Day-Timer Keeps You Organized

Was organization your New Year’s resolution? Keep 2009 organized with yet another great organizer from Day-Timer! The Day-Timer Schedule Master not only keeps you organized but, more importantly, helps to create good communication among family members.

Each person in the family has their own color code. Everyone can see at a glance if there are conflicts with anyone's schedule.

This keeps parents in charge of family life vs. being a reactor to an endless number of activities that can pull a family apart.

For instance, Dad can see at a glance that he is going on a business trip and his daughter's birthday will happen while he is away.

Dad can choose to live up to his family values and invite her to spend the Saturday before he leaves on a special date - to go to the movies,

play video games and have her favorite fast food.

So this calendar is more than color coded pieces of paper.

It is a help for families to finally create balance in their lives in 2009 and choose to do what is important to them first.

The monthly calendar gives you the overview; bottom tabs let you turn effortlessly to any month or phone reference page. The weekly calendar pad tracks multiple schedules by person and the stickies allows you to put reminders in children's lunch bags or leave messages for them on the central message board. Please visit www.daytimer.com for more information.
