Geek Tip: Use a Shared Google Calendar to Plan Family Events

Every time I visit home, I have to call my parents and each sister separately to figure out a weekend when everyone is home. And planned vacations together? That's a minimum of eight calls just to figure out everyone's availability.

But not anymore — I have invited my family to a shared Google Calendar. Under "My Calendars" just click Create. I called mine the ultra-scintillating "Family Calendar" and added my family members' email addresses so they can add and edit events.

So far, things are going swimmingly and the fam is taking my lead — I've put my next flight itinerary in the details part of the calendar and I'm just waiting for someone to volunteer to pick me up from the airport. Anyone? Bueller?

Such a great idea. Bueller joke made my morning. Airport pickups are the worst!

My roomates and I used a shared Google Calendar to keep track of whose week it is to take out the garbage and clean. I set-up the calendar then just shared it with the other two girls and they both get email reminders of events. So on Sunday night, everyone gets an email of whose turn it is to put out the trash. This way no one can come up with an excuse or say that they didn't know. It's been working out quite well.
