Mom's Weekly Calendar



What is one thing that we're all looking for at this time of year?

That's right - a new calendar!

Personally, I think buying a new calendar at the end of each year is kind of exciting. I've always enjoyed reflecting over the prior year as I update the new calendar with birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

My favorite calendar of all times is Mom's Weekly Planner which is put out by Peter Pauper Press.

Reasons I like this calendar:

  • It covers 18 months instead of your typical 12. This is extremely helpful if you tend to be a planner who plans things out WAY in advance! (Ah hem!)
  • You can view each month at a glance in a full page spread.
  • In between each full-page month spread you can also view/schedule/plan out your month by week.
  • Furthermore, if you are super duper organized, you can plan out your days by morning, afternoon and evening!
  • The back of the calendar has an address book with ample space for actually recording people's contact information.
  • There are also tear-out "To Do" sheets for the busy mom that you no doubt are!
I think this calendar does a good job at appealing to the "I need to jot this down right quick" type of mom as well as to the more detail oriented mom. (I fall into the former category, personally.) I love the amount of space I'm given in which to write down our life plans as well as how neat and organized it makes my desk look. Instead of having notes strewn about I can keep all my thoughts and plans in one handy dandy book and it looks great!

Per Peter Pauper Press's usual standards, Mom's Weekly Planner is nicely spiral bound inside a hard back cover and comes in a red or blue cover.

Perhaps even more exciting for you today - I am happy to say that Peter Pauper Press has offered up one of these calendars to one of my readers here at Reading to Know. Care to win? Simply leave a comment below. This contest is open to U.S. Residents only and will be open through Sunday, December 5th.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

THE WINNER (as selected by random.org) is #14 - Lisa! Congratulations!

Merry Christmas too, of course, specifically from Peter Pauper Press!

(Thank you, PPP, for sending one of these delightful calendars my way and for offering another to one of my readers for a Christmas contest!)

This does look like a really good calendar...the only negative is that I didn't get it in July of this year.

For me calendars definitely need to be preprinted...I mess up the dates if I have to write them in...so this looks perfect for me.

I love my calendar...and bring it out to schedule everything.

It looks like a great calendar. 18-month calendars are so helpful! ;)

Thanks for sharing this one. It's good to find new styles of calendars.

Lovely! Thanks for the chance.

Krista said...

Oh yes, 18 months would be just about right... ;) I actually have something in my head that's 3 years away! My father-in-law and I are much alike (it's his event that's in my head).
I used to carry a planner like this when I was in high school and college. Sooo nice to keep track of when major projects were due, work schedule, etc!
