Let's talk about calendars!

What do you use for a calendar (paper, phone, computer, etc)?
How do you organize your calendar?
Do you write in pen or pencil on your calendar (if paper)?
If you use your computer, what program do you use?
If you use your phone, do you know of any good apps that you can upload to multiple phones to keep the family organized?
What else can you tell us about your calendar(S)??

We have a huge frosted glass calandar on the wall. It used to be color coded using dry erase markers. Might go back to that.

We just have a regular calendar hanging on the back of the basement door in the kitchen. I just use pen in it. Eric uses a yellow highlighter to mark his days off.

I use a regular wall calendar. I don't do anything special as far as color coding or whatever (well I put shiny star stickers on the days I go running, for motivation, lol). I hang the calendar on my wall across from my bed so I can always see it.

What do you use for a calendar (paper, phone, computer, etc)? We use a large desk calendar and our phones.
How do you organize your calendar? Right now appointments and special dates are just written in by pencil. Important things done for the farming/ranching are written in red pen and/or highlighted. Kendra is starting kindergarten this year and will be in more activities so may have to look at color coding the appointments.
Do you write in pen or pencil on your calendar (if paper)? Mostly pencil.
If you use your computer, what program do you use? Don't use our computer, but it there is an app that would work with both our Blackberries and the computer I think we would.
If you use your phone, do you know of any good apps that you can upload to multiple phones to keep the family organized? The main reason I asked this question is because we are looking for one.
What else can you tell us about your calendar(S)?? That it drives me nuts that my DH will use the whole square to write an appointment in...leaving no room for me to add anything to that day. DH also has a bad habit of constantly asking me what is going on for the week (like I am supposed to know everything off the top of my head) so was thinking about making one of these to hang next to the back door:

Jaime - How do you like COZI? I looked at that one (actually the only one I have found), but the reviews didn't look too highly rated for Blackberries.

What do you use for a calendar (paper, phone, computer, etc)? I have two paper planners (a bigger one for life, and a smaller one for my 31 business) & phone/computer (cozi.com)
How do you organize your calendar? On the paper planner, I use first initials to show who does what and when. I also make a lot of lists on it.
Do you write in pen or pencil on your calendar (if paper)? Pen
If you use your computer, what program do you use? Cozi
If you use your phone, do you know of any good apps that you can upload to multiple phones to keep the family organized? I use Cozi on it too.
What else can you tell us about your calendar(S)?? I love paper planners/calendars b/c I can plan out months at a time. BUT, I like syncing it with Cozi b/c then my husband has all of the important information too. It sends me email reminders too and I LOVE that.
