Thinking about getting a weekly family planner? Chances are that if you think you need organisation, you probably do. A weekly planner is never a bad idea. It lets you nail down your family’s daily and weekly schedule so that you always know who needs to be where and when. It can also help you delegate chores and master your own daily routine.
