Everyone who knows me, knows that I live my life according to lists and calendars. My desktop, my computer, my car dashboard, my bedside table, my Iphone are all littered with lists. Lists of things to do today, tomorrow, this year. Lists of how to improve myself, things to sign the kids up for, improvements for the house. I LOVE lists almost as much as I LOVE calendars.
I have various versions of my calendar available at my fingertips regardless of where I am. I have digital copies on my phone and my laptop. Few things excite me as much as a fresh, old-school, paper and pen day timer. It’s a sure-bet Christmas gift!
I stumbled across this Dry Erase Calendar Wall Decal ($35 USD)from PBTeen on one of my favourite home sites, Remodelista.
What I find so appealing about this calendar is that kids can have a visual of their week’s programs and play dates. It is a great way to encourage accountability while giving the wall a punch of colour.
*For younger children, drawing pictures or symbols of their activities can prepare them for the week to come.
Oh my goodness I feel the same way about calendars, organizers, and my beautiful day planner that I take everywhere with me-I would be so lost without it. I love this wall decal now my 4yr old can track his own social calendar, haha. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
I am seriously considering getting it for our boys so they can see when they have their programs – so when they ask if it is a skating day, I can tell them to look at their calendar.
Thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂
I am so old school. I cannot let go of my filofax, even with laptop and iphone calendars. There’s just something about the tactile nature of pen and paper…
i love that you love these things as much as i do!! i would have a day planner, but i refuse to carry a purse, so i don’t have one. but i do have a good ol’ fashioned desk calendar that i scribble various things on. oh, and did i mention that i have the last 4 yrs worth of calendars? not that i need them for ANYTHING, but i think that’s a good example of my “love” for them. lists – don’t even get me started on that. i have lists everywhere. actually, i have probably 4 mead “fat lil notebooks” laying around the house strictly for listing anything. i bought a book of lists. don’t judge me.
Oooh. A book of lists? Do share!
did i mention it’s the canadian edition too? i must admit, i didn’t seek this book out, but i did have a little “school girl shriek” when i saw it 50% off on a bookstore clearance table!
this is the book, the most random book of lists, and that’s why i love it:
i have to have one of these! i like the format. i never use my calendar and never know what day or month it is. i forget everyones birthdays! its terrible. maybe that calender will help me.
Well, you definitely wouldn’t be able to miss any dates if your wall contained a giant calendar decal! 🙂
