Organization Week: Cute Calendar Ideas

how to organize your house

To keep our family organized and so we know the happenings of every day we have a family calendar -

Funcational monthly calendars1

I bought two of them on sale from Hobby Lobby. They used to have white frames but us crafters can’t leave anything alone so I gave them a coat of blue (Rustoleum Slate Blue) I had on hand. They came with little brackets that I installed on the wall and those are permanent – then I have the recent month hanging on the top and the next month on the bottom – then on the first of the month I simply move the bottom one up to the top, wipe off the top one and that one becomes the bottom one. Pretty simple process and nothing super fancy but it works great for our family.

I hung them in the little space between our laundry room door and garage door – so we see it multiple times a day. It’s also nice to glace at it as I am running out the door to make sure I don’t have anything {else} going on that day. Besides our family binder (which I will share with you later this week) these are currently the only calendars I have hanging up in my house – but I wanted to share some more ideas for calendars with you and after seeing some of these cute ideas – I may have to fix that!

Wall Calendar
Using Vinyl you could create this darling wall calendar – You would need dry erase vinyl and chalkboard vinyl – or to make the days more permanent you could just use black vinyl.
