Calendars & Chores: The BEST organizational calendar for families!

Listen up y'all...THIS is the gift to give this year!  The calendars from Calendars & Chores are simply AMAZING!  I about died when I opened the box from this Etsy shop - a very well-packed sturdy box that is.

The pictures don't do my calendar justice.  It's gorgeous!  I received the Large DRY/WET Erase Calendar with 6 Weeks Showing at All Times - Tan Whimsical with Brown Frame.  It looks fantastic in my kitchen.  It's just so wonderful.  Gosh, can you tell I love this thing?!?

The frame comes ready to hang on your wall, but I chose to use some 3M Picture Strips and hung my calendar on the side of my refrigerator.  It turned out so great.  My family loves that I can use different colored wet erase markers to highlight their appointments, activities, due dates, etc.

Read more about this product from their Etsy shop:

Dry erase calendars are great because you can easily add and delete events. However, it’s frustrating that most dry erase calendars have one month available at a time. That is what makes this calendar so efficient-the weeks are separated and can be moved weekly, allowing you to have 6 weeks that are updated always! When the top week is over, you simply remove it, erase it’s content and move it to the bottom of the calendar. You then move the other weeks up. I love and use my calendar on my phone, but I feel it’s necessary to have one big family calendar in the home to keep everyone on their toes. This one has really worked well for us and has been very easy to use.

Each calendar kit comes with 6 weeks of separate strips, days of the week strip and all 12 months. Each week strip is 18 ½ inches wide and approximately 3 inches high. Each piece is completely backed with a quality magnet.

The frame measures 27 ½ by 23 ½.  Frame colors: white, off-white, black, brown, or unfinished.

I am very happy with the strength of the magnet, and you can choose from a nice assortment of colors/patterns.

Don't forget the accessories!  I received the Set of 8 Wet Erase Colored Expo Markers.  These are great markers.  I love the assortment of colors, and I love that they don't smudge off the board.  All I need is a damp rag, and the marker just wipes off with ease.  I prefer these over dry erase markers, but dry erase markers can be used on the magnet strips also.

The Brocade Magnetic Pencil Cup in black looks amazing on my magnetic calendar board.  It holds all of my markers, and I love the design.  It also comes in white.

Calendars & Chores also offers chore charts!

I highly recommend the products from Calendars & Chores.  If you're looking for a special holiday gift this year, their calendars will be a hit.  This is one of the best products I have had the pleasure of reviewing.
