FREE Printable Weekly Schedule
The closer we get to the official start of the school year, the crazier my schedule gets. Unfortunately, the ringing of the school bell will do nothing to alleviate my swollen schedule. From play-dates to doctors appointments to business meetings, my calendar is a tangled knot of events and to-dos… and that doesn’t even touch the hubby’s calendar! With all my busy family has got going on, a printable weekly schedule is a must, so I took matters into my own hands and whipped up this free printable weekly schedule.
With all the electronic calendars right at our fingertips, synced up with our email accounts and cell phones, you may be thinking “why the heck would I want a free printable weekly schedule” but please bare with me.
I’m all for convenience, and it’s great that with electronic calendars your schedule can be synced across multiple devices, but you have to admit that they aren’t always quite as simple as just jotting something down on a piece of paper. Plus, if your calendar isn’t shared with all your family members or your children don’t have electronic devices with calendars, not everyone is looped in. I like to transcribe all of my families appointments onto this free printable weekly schedule and then hang it on the fridge. This free printable weekly schedule serves as a great quick reference every time I go into the kitchen.
For example, each morning when I make breakfast, I take a quick look at the free printable weekly schedule to see what I’ve got coming up and what the hubby will be doing today. This also helps me plan dinner. If we’re both going to be running all day I know I’ll need to rely on the trusty crockpot for help with dinner.
There are a lot of other uses for this free printable weekly schedule as well. For instance, I use a copy to schedule out work that needs to be done on the Freebie Finding Mom blog. It is a lot more satisfying to physically draw a line through a completed task than to delete it on a screen. Another possible use for this free printable weekly schedule is to keep your child on track after school (especially if you work and your child spends any time home alone). Keep your child from getting bored and running amok by scheduling all of his time until you get home. For example, you could schedule homework, chores, a little television, snack time, etc.
At the end of the day, this free printable weekly schedule is great for keeping you from double booking yourself and getting your whole family on the same page. Enjoy!
