A new year, a fresh start. I always LOVE the way a brand new calendar feels, don’t you? There are so many uses for a calendar in the home and I often find myself printing off single months at a time to keep track of a variety of activities, countdowns, etc. Of course, we have one main, family calendar that is magnetic and stays on the fridge for all to see.
