I am posting a few more close up photos of what the calendar pages look like on Amazon to help those who might want to see more of this calendar.
Differences between Plan-It Calendars and Amy Knapp's Big Grid Family organizer:
---Plan-it has an area on the far left where you list each family member's name (up to 5 people) and then you are supposed to put that person's schedule on their grid line. The Big Grid Organizer does not have this. However, when I looked at my usage on the Plan-it, many times I ran out of space and wrote things all over day area. So now I use different color markers to designate different family members on this calendar and it seems to be working just as well.
---Plan-it gives you a full space for each day of the year. They do this by "moving" the last few days of a month to the next month's page, where a traditional calendar has triangles or divided spaces if a month spans 5 weeks. Big Grid, has the traditional layout with smaller spaces on the 5th week. However, their grid size is much bigger than Plan-it. But I still think I am going to miss not having full space on each day.
---Big Grid has an area on each grid to put your daily dinner menu. This is similar to the Amy Knapp Family organizer planner. Not sure if I will use this or not.
---Big Grid has tear off "to do" lists in the back of the calendar.
---Both calendars have special event stickers, but I rarely use them.Read more ›
It's real paper, not slick like some calendars, so you can write effectively on it with anything (markers, pens, pencils). The paper stands up well to colored crayola markers (which I use to color-code the calendar for different family members) - it doesn't bleed through.
It is fairly heavy (I have three magnets to hang it from my fridge), but you really can't get away from a heavy calendar if you need big squares on paper that can handle markers.
All-in-all, a good calendar for organizing a busy family.
Important holidays are noted, and each month contains a section for Reminders and a little To-Do list. This is exactly what we needed. I will definitely be purchasing another one of these next year.
