A traveling calendar

Scheduling your family’s busy life is almost its own full-time job. And no simple calendar will do. What you need is a comprehensive calendar on steroids. One that allows you to access it from anywhere and is fluid enough to change on the fly. And one that can easily keep track of what everyone is up to. If you’re a Mom, you’re keeping track of your own schedule and that of all the short people in your home – who have limited organizational skills of their own.

Whether you’re a Mom or not, a girl’s got a lot of demands on her time at work and home. It’s becoming increasingly requisite that our calendar not just be a list of appointments, but a tool that supports us and helps us get through the day.

That’s why I use Google Calendar. I may appear devastatingly organized, but the truth is I have no idea what I’m doing from one minute to the next without my calendar. Luckily, Google’s always got my back. That’s why I can’t live without Google Calendar.

Let me count the ways I love it: I can use it anywhere (so every device I have gets me where I’m going), it’s easy to share schedules, so I can coordinate efforts with co-workers and significant others – and it’s free.

Watch this Twirl to learn to see why gCal and I have a standing appointment.
