It’s no secret that I LOVE Erin Condren products! But I wanted to share with you one of my absolute favorite products!! Her FUNctional Family Planning System. (Mine is in Paisley to match both my 2015 ECLP and my Planner Clutch!)
The FUNctional Family board has saved my families sanity! Recently my husband, who spend the last ten years as an over the road truck driver, came home for good. Hopping into our crazy busy homeschool life, my work/volunteer schedules and hockey practice? He was losing his mind trying to keep up with us – so I finally re-purposed this awesome tool to make it work for our situation! (I had the weekly chore chart, instead of the weekly family planner – so it was just a minor repurpose!)
Having the ability to copy the pages out of my beloved planner and hang them on the wall has been priceless for us! I love this so much I purchased one as a “Thank You” gift for my awesome neighbor after she let us use her bathroom for a week during our recent bathroom remodel!
So let’s talk about the FUNctional Family System! It’s a bit pricey, $69. (But the quality is definitely worth it! I absolutely love this acrylic board!!) For the $69 you get the acrylic board, your choice of the chore chart or the weekly schedule pad (25 sheets), a “list pad” and a “Pen Holder” to stick to the back of your board. The system FUNctional Family System itself is available in 9 different patterns (which you can customize!)
The board itself is 11.5″ x 17.5″, the chart pads are 8.5″ x 11.625″ and the List Pad is 8.5″ x 4.
I’ll be honest here. The $25 for refill pads? That’s a bit steep for me! (So I just laminated one, and it works great with my favorite wet-erase markers!)
I ordered mine in the basic Paisley (my favorite EC pattern!) But for my neighbors? I went with the Lattice board, but customized the colors to match her kitchen! (With a slightly ulterior motive, as I wanted to see how well it was customized so I could review it!)
Both boards turned out absolutely gorgeous! And both have held up well over the past few months with the use and abuse that our busy families with young children generate!
The FUNctional Family System is one of my favorite Erin Condren Products (And I have many!!)
