Josh and I are both very organized people. Josh has a place for all his things and basically has his calendar memorized. I love to organize and create a calendars/lists for everything…gift giving, cooking/meal planning, work projects, etc. We’re having trouble syncing our own schedules. He has his meetings and activities and I’ve got my things, but we can never seem to get it together!
I started with Google Calendar and love it. I can sync it to Outlook Calendar, my Blackberry Calendar, and Josh and I can see the other’s calendar. The problem, someone isn’t updating their calendar…notice there is no blue on this calendar!
What I really want is a message center like this one from Pottery Barn. A nice desk to blog/check email/write my grocery list at, with a calendar, storage, and message center all in one area. But, I don’t have room for that…maybe at my next house.
So, I’m going to try and re-purpose a dry erase board into a weekly calendar to list our activities, meetings, events, to-dos, etc to make our own message center. I’ll show you the end result soon.
How do you sync your schedule with your spouse, what’s the key?
