my DH and I use Google Calendar. we have it synced on our computers and our phones and tablets, so it’s everywhere at a moment’s notice 🙂

what do you find difficult to use about it?

If you both have iphones/ipads – I’d recommend syncing calendars using icloud – I could never get google calendar to work right – it kept giving me doubles of things!

There’s a big ugly calandar in our kitchen, we write our crap on it, and while we’re standing over the counter eating breakfast, we can figure out what the hell the other person is up to that day…anything else is a hinderance in our archaeic home…

@Nona99:  We also have good ol’ wall calendar (it’s a kitty calendar!) but I also keep track of everything in my phone and SO will ask me what’s going on for the weekend when he’s trying to make plans.

@LiliKitty:  We’re techno-impaired at our house, he hates it and I don’t really care enough about anything to make it an issue, if we can’t figure it out with our brains and a couple of rocks, we dont really need it!

@Nona99:  LOL we are technologically (sp?) impaired also.

We tried a calendar on the computer but we found it easier to have one on the wall where we can see the entire month at once.  Ours is even color coded. Since I work rotating shifts my work hours are written in one color, the kids sporting events in another color and mundane things like dental appointments are in another color.  Birthdays are also color coded.  The kids know not to mess with the “calendar pens”. 🙂

I pretty much keep track of anything in a little handwritten planner book, but after reading some of these responses I think I’m going to give google calendar a shot since we both have android phones!

We use a paper calendar in the kitchen too. It just makes the most sense that way we can work together to plan things out because it’s not all over the place it’s all just right there on the wall in the most popular room in the house lol.

He’s not big on schedules. I use Google Calendar, which syncs with my iCal on my computer and my calendar on my Android phone. I keep the schedule of household chores, when we have the kids, hockey games (which is irrelevant at this point — sad).

For the week, we have a set of chalkboards in the kitchen to put in reminders and grocery lists.

@MrsDrRose612:  I don’t use anything iOS. my devices are all Android, which may be why I’m having an easier time of it? maybe it just doesn’t sync with the iCalendars. did you try the Google Calendar app?
