Organization. As busy homeschooling families, we need help in that area. So, where to turn for help? Glad you asked! BusyBodyBook just may be your busy family’s answer.
Joan Goldner designed this book to be a “go-anywhere-with-you” planner using a weekly grid system which is easy to set up and easy to use. It operates much like a calendar, but you fill-in the top with a name or, in the case of a student, the subject. Along the left of the page are the weekly dates. Place the activity under the right name, at the right day, and there you have it. Then all you have to do is go to the top of the chart, slide your finger down the grid and see that Johnny has a dental appointment at 3:00 on Wednesday. Or, a student may use the BusyBodyBook to schedule his study activities to notice that he has to complete his book report by Friday. Simplicity is the key!
Opposite the calendar grid is a convenient area called ToDoodles for notes/list making for those unexpected things that come up. Pencil in notes for unexpected church activities, gift ideas, etc., then check your notes and pencil in that activity, etc., for the correct person in the grid area. Plus, in the back, they have added perforated shopping list pages for easy removal.
The uses for this organizer are many. Organize appointments, chores, music lessons; your children can schedule their lessons, test days, free time, assignment due dates; you can organize business activities such as do budget, plan ad campaign, order office supplies; and Dad can even use one to record scheduled auto maintenance, house jobs, furnace filter changes, track auto mileage, etc.
Additional pluses that Joan has neatly placed into the Busy Body Book are pages for appointments/plans for next year, your contacts, and handy pockets in front and back.
Simply put, if it can be organized (and almost anything but weather can be), then the BusyBodyBook can be a wonderfully useful tool for getting your family from week beginning, to weekend, in an organized way, all year long.
