It’s that time of the year… to perhaps decide on a new family planning system
This is our solution:
The old one I had for years and years till it absolutely fell apart. Loved that it had pouches to just stick notes into. Unfortunately always looked fairly messy and I can’t get it anywhere any more.

Being an Interior Architect (before I became a Professional Organiser) I looked around and eventually designed my own using standard items.
The panels are magnetic glass whiteboards from Aldi; IKEA has something very similar and it always depends on the space you have. 4 of these fit almost too tight between two doorjambs.
I outlined the grid with permanent marker, the rest goes on with whiteboard marker. I also have a magnetic star that always sits on the square for today!!!
I write all appointments on it – colour coordinated: kids are black, hubby blue, I am green. The teenagers in the house started using it and put their own dates in. Works a treat!!!
