Keeping tabs on a big family can be tricky, with after school clubs, nursery trips, birthday parties and doctor’s appointments to keep track of. Traditional diaries don’t really give you the option to have everyone’s schedule in one place – there just isn’t room to write down everyones daily routine.
The new Mum’s Office Big Family Diary is the answer. Their revolutionary GRID format enables you to see your weekly schedule in conjunction with your family’s. You can see at a glance who should be where and when. You can even use the grid for meal plans, work rotas, college work or shopping lists – whatever you need to keep your life running the way it should!
The diary is laid out with tabs so you can easily flick to the area that you need, and there is heaps of room to write down important tasks and things to remember as well as appointments and birthdays.
At the front of the diary is the usual information section, where you can record important details about yourself, your partner and your children. I love the kids section, where there is space to write shoe sizes, clothing sizes and term dates. I find these are the sort of things I often need to know when out and about, and when you have a large family it can be difficult to remember off the top of your head!
Despite being fully packed with all these features and containing a whopping 176 pages, the Mum’s Office Big Family Diary measures just 24.5 x 19.5cm – the perfect size for popping in your handbag. There is an expandable pocket on the rear inside cover for keeping paperwork and notes, a pen loop and en elastic strap to keep everything together. It is also bound so that it can lay flat when open, making it much easier to use on a day to day basis. It runs in line with the school year, from 1st August through to 31st August the following year, which makes it easier to co-ordinate with school terms.
