5 DIY Wall Calendars to Get Organized

One of my favorite ways to keep the home organized is listing it out in a to-do list. In the past I have used post it notes and stick them on the fridge to remind myself what to do. However, it gets too messy. My solution - make a DIY wall calendar that catches my eye. Every morning when I wake up that's the first thing I see. Also, it keeps our family schedule in sync. With that said, if you're looking for a way to keep your home and life organized. Here are a 5 DIY wall calendar ideas you could possibly adapt in your home. 1. Paint Chip Calendar You can find these in Home Depot for FREE! Be creative and cut them out and pin them onto a cork board. 2. Sticky Calendar Keep your stickies organized by listing in a planner fashion. Swapping out stickies is a breeze when you need to completely rearrange your week. 3. Dry Erase Calendar You can create this using dry erase paint. You don't have to look for a new dry erase board every year. 4. Washi Tape Calendar Use a washi tape to decorate a plain dry erase decal into a handy grid calendar. You can stick it on your refrigerator for an added magnetic element. It's better than falling stickies. 5. Store-Brought Calendar If you don't have the time to make your own buy a simple oversized calendar then decorate it from there. This is is from Paper Source, a stationery store.
I love the paint chip wall. I'm a big fan of colors. :)
