Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

I don't use paper calendars any more. I do have one of those towel calendars with the whole year on it hanging on the closet door. Everything else is on my phone.

Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

Yes...still do. One in my kitchen and one upstairs in my office/workout room.

 

I love the visuals of them. Sometimes people make me one, as my cousin did, last year, of all her beautiful sunrise shots she texts me often.

 

In the kitchen I often do kitchen or food themed ones...but I've also just done different "homey" ones with various seasonal decor shots. For those I love the Lang ones I find on Amazon.

 

This year when we were in Cape Cod, I found a very pretty one in Christmas Tree store full of coastal Cape Cod shots...I love Cape Cod, so that'll be nice. Plus, I'm just glad I already have it ready to go, as opposed to my usual ordering in mid-January! Smiley Happy

Yesterday DH and I were removing a huge, old-fashioned TV from the guest room closet when I found an old paper calendar on a shelf.  It was a 1999 calendar with large pictures of gorgeous Irish Setters.....which we used to have.

 

As I went through the calendar, I picked the pictures I wanted to frame...you must have been watching, lol !!!

Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

Yes! Two minis: one for the kitchen, one for the office, where I plan out the weeks in my college semester. Also, I like a desk calendar where I can tear off each day.

 

Then there's my Palm Pilot where I notate important home events, since those months & years are saved.

Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

I do! It's hanging on the side of my fridge next to the counter where my coffee maker stands. I write important happenings, birthdays, appointments, etc., on it each January before I hang it. I don't do well with electronic calendars. Since I retired, my days are not filled to the brim so these paper calendars fit the bill nicely for me. Each morning as I fix my coffee, I look to see what I think is important to know for the specific day as well as the coming week. It also allows me to send birthday/anniversary cards to people who are important to me and I don't want to forget...or let them know I've forgotten. I buy calendars each year by a local artist and love seeing his artwork each month. I've been getting his for probably 10 years or so and never get tired of seeing his work.

I use a big paper calendar with scenes of France. It is in a prominent spot on the wall in the kitchen so that I can't miss it. I tried using my iPad for appointments but if I didn't look at it, I was lost. I can't miss that beautiful wall calendar. It works for me.

Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

I have a wall calendar hanging next to my desk in my home office. Love it and look forward to new images every year. I consult that calendar as my primary tracker and will use the calendar feature on my phone/laptop, but it's not front and center as a daily reminder like my wall calendar.

Re: Do You Use A Paper Calendar?

We us both phone and paper to keep track.  That way we both know each others schedule.  We're retired and very busy.  Some days we are 2 ships passing....  Add grandkids activities and WOW!  Life is good.
