It’s that time of the year again when I spend a few minutes sorting out my calendar that I leave on my desk. I have been doing this for a few years now and even though I have a calendar on my phone, my printed out version that sits on my desk is one of the most used items and it is so quick and easy to sort out.
I use these calendar pages from the Activity Village site. It is quite a large document and they have 2 or 3 versions for each month (different versions of each month for the different hemispheres) so don’t go and print out the whole document, rather select the pages that you want. Each page has a colourful heading and some cute images.
So a quick printing session and the hole punch to create 2 holes at the top, tie the pages together with a bit of ribbon, and in just a few quick minutes I am sorted for the new year.
So why do I still print out all this calendar? Honestly I really find it useful to have each calendar month displayed on one page so I can scribble in notes. It helps me to stay on top of the daily, weekly chaos and really so much ends up getting jotted down that I could not imagine not having my little 12 page calendar printed out, sitting on my desk. Plus I must confess I did once spill some tea on my calendar and it was handy to just be able to quickly reprint the pages that I ruined (yes, yes I know I really should not be drinking tea at my desk where my computer is but lets be realistic here, tea is often required).
It’s quick and easy to set up and it ends up helping me stay on top of daily life so it is here to stay for another year of organised chaos.
