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?
