If you’re reading this post, you have access to a computer and the Internet. If you have access to a computer and the Internet, you have access to a tremendous array of digital calendars and organizers–many of them for free. So, why aren’t you taking advantage of them?
Let me help you out here by detailing some of the benefits of going digital, at least with your calendar.
1. You’re less likely to lose your calendar than you are to lose a small planner.
2. You don’t need whiteout or an eraser to update a computer calendar
3. Most cell phones (even without an Internet connection) have calendars so you always have it with you
4. Google, Yahoo, and other calendars will sync with your smart phone so you always have access to your events and on multiple computers
5. You update once, automatically change all of your digital calendars AND never rewrite birthdays again
6. You can print out daily, weekly, and/or monthly calendars with your events already added
7. You can color code most computer calendars for different family members or types of appointments
8. You can share your online calendar with your family members
9. Digital calendars can remind you of appointments and to-do items
10. Catch up with the rest of the digitized population 🙂
My favorite computer calendar is with Google, in case any of y’all were wondering. And yes, I do sync it with my smartphone and check it regularly and before making any commitments.

Wow! I'm hooked. I already use the digital calendar, but I'm loving how you use your strengths to help others live better. So glad you shared your site on Moms Together. Looking forward to getting to know you better!
I am TRYING to take the step to digital. Now I have this little ipad and it's time. I'll take any guidance/encouragement. 40 years of paper and pencil does not disappear without a struggle…Ring true,Nancy
Nice. I was annoyed that after spending hours putting birthdays, etc. of church and my family on a calendar program that the program erased all of the information without notice. I haven't been as eager to try again since even though I have a Windows 7 calendar reminder now.
I am just starting to keep records as I am new to homeschooling. I thought there would be software out there to keep records, if there is I have having a hard time finding it. I didnt want to have to re-invent the wheel. Right now I am using the HSLDA form for m state. Any other recommendations??
I love my Google Calendar, too! Less paper!
Sadly, I have like 2 digital calendar's and a small calendar in my purse. I like to be organized. LOL Maybe a bit to much, but I find then no matter where I am I have a copy. Course my most used calendar is on my phone. Great post!
