Planning Ahead For Autumn

Planning Ahead For Autumn

Emily Maidment

The nights are drawing in and the weather is feeling cooler. A new school year is underway and it certainly feels like Autumn has arrived. Adjusting to the changing of the seasons may feel tricky after a beautiful summer but with a little planning and preparation, this time of year can be full of productivity, achievements and most of all, fun!

Autumn is often seen as a time for fresh starts, with little ones’ school routines and work schedules filling up fast in the run-up to the busy winter season; before you know it, you have a calendar full of commitments to juggle. Clever yet simple organisation is a must in order to make the most of your free time and fun family plans.

The essential tool for Autumn organisation

A Family Life Book Diary is a handy solution to a jam-packed household schedule. It’s a week-to-view, 16-month diary, which means it’s ready to be put to use right away. Seven columns coordinate multiple family members plans all within the same diary, yet its A5 size means it’s portable enough to be carried in your bag and used throughout the day.

With a busier schedule to contend with, new planning habits are a great way to stay on track of your to-dos. Alongside the traditional diary, the Family Life Book is full of additional tools to make organising that little bit easier. Monthly planning pages are a great place to create a helpful list of your tasks throughout the coming weeks ahead, ensuring no job is forgotten. Tick off your to-dos and forward plan for the months ahead for optimum organisation. Staying on top of your schedule is key to making sure you plan your time evenly between tackling your workload and enjoying the company of friends and family.

Make use of the weekly routines planning pages to keep on top of your family's regular activities, this is a great way to stay up to date with new school schedules, clubs and even childcare arrangements. You'll also find tracking tools to monitor your expenditure and budget for both regular bills and one-off expenses. With the Family Life Book Diary to hand, you can reach your financial goals in no time, whether by hitting that long-awaited milestone figure or saving for a well-earned treat.

Now that the Autumn school term is upon us, we know all too well that can mean more books, clothes and other new purchases. With that in mind, we’ve included perforated shopping lists within the Family Life Book, allowing you to simply jot down your essentials and easily remove the list to ensure no items are forgotten from your shopping trip ever again. Hurrah!

Key dates for your diary this Autumn

Don’t forget, if you already own one of our Family Life Book Diaries, we include key UK dates and holidays for your convenience. With so many exciting events on the horizon, here are the dates to have highlighted in your diary:


Changing of the Clocks - Sunday 27th October - The clocks fall back an hour at 2:00 am on the last Sunday in October, leading to cosier evenings and a precious extra hour to sleep.

Halloween - Thursday 31st October - Whether it’s a chance to get spookily creative, indulge in treats or take part in the fun of dressing up, Halloween is a great date in our diary.
