When it comes to tracking monthly appointments, to-do lists, birthdays, or just trying to know where I’m supposed to be and when, a calendar is what I usually turn to in order to keep track of my life. For the most part this idea works well, except that calendars tend to have every holiday under the sun pre-printed on them. While it’s nice to know that August is National Panini Month, the printing of these holidays take up valuable space.
Organizher™ understood how precious this space was to us and created a line of products designed to be customized and personalized. I received their Monthly Tabbed Wall Calendar. Wow! This is the calendar perfect for keeping track of not only what you have going on in your life, but “their” lives too.
The Monthly Tabbed Wall Calendar is unique in that it allows you to fill in each month. So, the calendar starts whenever you purchase it. There is space allowed for you to fill in “Mine” and “Theirs” when it comes to scheduling. While it is just me and Toby here and you would think the “theirs” wouldn’t necessarily apply to me, I like this feature as I do take my Great Aunt Alice to her doctor appointments, Toby of course has vet appointments, and I can also make notes in the extra space here of birthdays and anniversaries.
Organizher™ makes the suggestion of noting birthdays at the beginning of the month. That would be one way of doing that. I had room to go ahead and note them right on the days they occurred. Here are some additional tips for use from Organizher™:
- Start with what you know (practices/lessons) then work around
- Stop rewriting. Shapes can signify recurring events
- Review upcoming weeks with the family
- The “mine” section in the Organizher™ grid can include appointments, to do lists, shopping lists, or daily goals
- Try using the “theirs” section in the Organizher™ grid to keep track of where everyone is headed — or to track chores and homework
- Go ahead, schedule some “me” time
There is a nice amount of room under each day to write. As long as I look at my Monthly Tabbed Wall Calendar each day, I’m pretty sure I’ll make all my appointments, send all necessary birthday cards, and get done what I’m supposed to each month. I really like that you truly get to make this calendar yours.
