I know most of us are probably not ready to think about the New Year as we are in the midst of holiday choas right now but with as many kiddos as I have I am always looking ahead. There are doctor appointments, dentist appointments, birthdays, and so many other events that I need to keep organized.
Our calendars keep our day to day activities running smoothly and help to keep us prepared for upcoming events. They are vital to keeping this Momma sane!
What features do you look for in a calendar? I know I like it to have enough room to write things in the blocks. I also like to have the moon phases and holidays on the calendar.
Do you like the stickers or not? I kinda like the idea of stickers and it helps me to tell at a glance what we have coming up if there are stickers on it.
While I absolutely love my Cozi mobile app and I always have it pulled up on my laptop. I keep everything from appointments to recipes on my Cozi calendar and my family members all have access to it as well. I still like to have a wall calendar as well so that I can refer to it quickly if I’m on the phone or if Mr. Awesome needs to double check something he can refer to it as well.
This led me to check out Amazon for some new planning calendars today. There is such a selection to choose from I’m really not sure which one I want to get yet but here are a few of the ones I’ve found:

I really like some of the features, like the place to write in the dinner menu, in this calendar:
You can track up to 7 family members with this calendar here! (I could also see using the family members slots for things like meals or other activities you need to keep up with.)
This looks like a little non traditional but it looks like it would be a really easy and fun way to stay organized. The fact that they are celebrating their 22nd anniversary with this calendar is pretty amazing as well.
But then I could always just buy a large calendar like this:
Then I could add my own stickers or get some like these:
Or even grab a large calendar with stickers included:
I would love to have a large dry erase wall calendar like the one below but we don’t have any wall space for something like that right now.
All of the calendars I have listed are available with Amazon Prime so they can be delivered to your home rather quickly and they have at least a 4 star rating… I always try to look at ratings and read reviews because I want to make sure that others have liked them before I even consider them.
So many neat ideas to choose from… I just can’t decide yet but I will keep pondering it and make a decision by the weekend and I’ll update the post and cover photo to show my choice.
I almost forgot about ErinCondren.com . I love all the personalized products and organizational accessories! Check it out for yourself and you’ll receive $10 off your first purchase!
Do have a favorite calendar? If so, let me know in the comments. Also let me know what you like/dislike about your current calendar or any of the ones I’ve mentioned in the post. Thanks a bunch!
P.S. These would also make an awesome gift for a busy momma!
