Simple Family Planning

This post is for all our FPU families!  Here are some pics of our family chore charts and family calendar I spoke about this week!

I think we found all of these at Target over the past couple of years.  The are perfect for keeping it simple!  We plan our month of activities this way we know what we need to budget for.  And the kids have their commission charts for chores they get paid for and their family chores.

Leslie ran across some chore chart ideas tonight:


Links for June 2008

Here are some more great sites I have come across lately: – Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?  To see what I am up to…  wtmullican is my user name! – LinkedIn is an online network of more than 20 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 150 industries. When you join, you create a profile that summarizes your professional accomplishments. Your profile helps you find and be found by former colleagues, clients, and partners. You can add more connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you. Your network consists of your connections, your connections’ connections, and the people they know, linking you to thousands of qualified professionals. – Gyminee is the premier fitness social network for detailed tracking, online accountability, and motivation. Whether you are trying to lose weight or get fit, it's time to start taking your fitness seriously. – Netflix is the world's largest online movie rental service, providing more than 8 million subscribers access to more than 100,000 DVD titles plus a growing library of more than 10,000 choices that can be watched instantly on their PCs. The company offers nine subscription plans, starting at only $4.99 per month. There are no due dates and no late fees – ever. All Netflix plans include both DVDs delivered to subscribers' homes and, for no additional fee, movies and TV series that can be started in as little as 30 seconds on subscribers' PCs. DVDs are delivered free to members by first class mail, with a postage-paid return envelope, from over 100 U.S. shipping points. Nearly 95 percent of Netflix subscribers live in areas that can be reached with generally one business day delivery. Netflix offers personalized movie recommendations and has two billion movie ratings.

We love out NetFlix!  We can watch 3 movies per week…yes that is 12 per month for $20!  Going to the movies with the family…$50 one movie!  That is a budget buster! – Keep up with the Mars Lander!

That is all for now!
