Trying to find next year’s calendar could sometimes be tricky but I discovered that Costco started carrying them around mid-August. Getting one as early as possible was a necessity when the kids were in school! Sometime during the summer I’d download the upcoming school calendar from the web and, as soon as I got next year’s calendar, I could finish recording all the holidays and days off through the end of the school year. I also write down all birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Combined with my folder system, this keeps me remarkably organized.
2014 calendars are now available and I’m already late getting mine. Must be because I don’t have any school-aged kids anymore.
