63: Planning the Holidays with Tech


Here are some ideas for planning the holidays with tech


I covered the topic in detail in Episode 10: Christmas Shopping the Techie Way
You might also find this blog post about using Trello for gift shopping helpful.

Google Calendar

Use Google Calendar to keep track of who needs to be where, who will be in for meals, who needs the car etc.


Trying to work out the best day to hold a holiday party, get together with friends, plan an outing with others? Doodle is a great tool to do that easily.

Trello or Google Sheets

I like using Google Sheets to plan meals and who will help prepare and clean up. You could also use Trello for this.
And I like using Trello to create my weekly and daily ‘to-do lists’. You could use it to assign chores to your children. Listen to the episode as I give some suggestions on how to do this.


I have been using Anylist for years and it makes grocery shopping so much easier. Once you have your menus set, add everything to the app and it sorts it into “sections” to make it easier to find items in the store. You can add all your family members to the app so that they can easily add items they need too.

Google Maps or Waze

Before you leave home to run errands, visit friends etc, check with your favorite GPS app to make sure that the route you usually take is the quickest during the holiday period.

Show sponsor, FundaFunda Academy has some fun resources for families today on cold winter days. Play in teams and see who can solve Mystery of the Amber Room or Mosby’s Treasure first.
