The family calendar serves as our memory in this house... we scribble notes about everything from future doctor's appointments to when we've made bank deposits. The only trouble with making so many notes is that you soon run out of room on a typical sized calendar.
Last year I discovered Flylady's wall calendar, and it works perfectly for us. The squares are big enough for lots of notes and stickers, and the plain white sqares work well for my color-coded activity notes. Flylady offers stickers, too, if you choose to use them.
I'm ordering my 2008 calendar today... it definitely works for me! Check out more Works for Me Wednesday tips over at Rocks in my Dryer!
P.S. If you're not familiar with Flylady, I highly recommend the book Sink Reflections. It's one of the few books I own that I refuse to part with!
Note: I am in no way affiliated with Flylady or her website, I'm just a member and a big fan! :)
