I found a really neat way to add some organizational planners and tips from Martha Stewart‘s website to My Yahoo Calendar. You can also get them for your Google, Outlook or iCal calendars. You can choose from: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Gardening, Homekeeping, Organizing and Pets.
Ok, so I am a fan of Martha Stewart, I’ll admit it and I have no problem with it. I love the ideas that she and her team comes up with. I like the idea of making our lives pretty in the midst of our daily chaos. As part of my trying to better organize myself, I started using a yahoo calendar on my My Yahoo page. I don’t use it for my daily items to keep up with, those go on my desk calendar and my personal planner. But I am using it for reminders that I don’t want to forget and for neat things I find on the internet. Here’s how it looks:
To get this really neat “Good Thing” to quote Martha, go to http://www.marthastewart.com/calendar and check the ones you want to receive and then click subscribe. It’s that easy! Then it will sync with your calendar and you’ll receive to-do’s or tips. It’s really neat and not bombarding like a lot of places send out.
It’s helped me already to get a little more organized. I have been reminded about getting my seeds started indoors and that I need to clean out my closet and other neat tips. What’s really neat is that when you go into your calendar, each tip is a link to her website with more detailed information to help you get started. Do I do each tip that comes to my calendar? Of course not or I just might not do it that day. But it does give me something to think about and plan for as I look across my month or week. Try it out!
