Chalkboard refrigerator schedule

Once again, summer is quickly turning into a sweet memory, while the new school year has crept up on us like ill-fitting underwear. Sigh.

The good news is that there are so many things I love about fall! For example, the change in season and lifestyle give me a wonderful opportunity to get recharged, refocused and reorganized!

The first fall order of business at our house? Create a stylish family schedule – displayed in a prominent location – to help us keep track of all our tasks, events and appointments.

Materials needed to recreate this project:

(You could also replicate something similar by simply buying plain chalkboard vinyl, cutting it to fit your fridge, and using chalk markers to label the days of the week.)

I chose to place the vertical weekly schedule on the side of our refrigerator because this is a high-traffic area of our home. It is an area visible both from our kitchen and living room, and everyone passes by it multiple times daily. I believe this is one of the keys to maintaining a hanging schedule; it should be placed in a location where people pass by frequently.

After deciding on the location, I began applying the vinyl decal to the fridge.

This schedule is helping our family stay organized and on top of our daily events. I also love that I can customize it for any season. The kids enjoy using it, too.

How do you keep track of your busy fall schedule?

  1. I bought chalkboard contact paper and applied it to the side of my refrigerator. A less expensive alternative, and it works great.
