favorite 2012 calendars

despite the proliferation of electronic gadgets at my disposal, the calendar on the side of my fridge is the center of operations. it must be able to accommodate up to at least 4 written entries per day, and i am generally not too picky about the calendar’s theme as its purpose is to record the important stuff and that’s it.* being that i have a hard time remembering what day it is, having more than one calendar around the house is needed, and that’s where the pretty ones come in. here are some of my favorites so far for 2012:

*if an event or appointment is going on my calendar, it doesn’t count unless it is physically written on the calendar on the side of the fridge. seriously. i cannot deal with electronic calendars. any time i’m away from home making an appointment, i inevitably book the appointment on a day/time that is already spoken for. old habits die hard, so i still make appointments knowing that i’ll probably need to call and rebook once i get home and check the calendar on the side of the fridge. i also do not have a microwave.

    as much as I’ve tried the electronic calendar thing, I, too, keep coming back to paper….. call us old fashioned?

    This was worth powering through and finishing the post! I completely agree on the written calendar book. Meemaw uses that iPhone calendar but usually it’s written in a book as well :)

    They’re all lovely! For years and years I was completely electronic. It was ok. Since being home, I’ve gone paper and I LOVE IT!!! Not sure exactly why, but I’m way more organized now as far as the calendar goes and have a much better handle on what’s coming up. Yay paper calendars!!!

    Yep, I’m a double booker too. I try to keep an electronic calendar and a dry erase on the fridge, but neither work and I’m either early or late for everything.
