About the Author

Amy Knapp was a businesswoman with a promotional advertising company when her daughter contracted meningitis at the age of two months. Realizing that she was going to have lifelong challenges and disabilities, Amy sold her business to become a stay-at-home mom, only to find that her organizational tools didn't help her be productive in a home environment. To fill the gap, she created Amy Knapp's Family Organizer, now in its sixth year with accumulated sales of over 500,000 copies. She lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

I highly recommend this calendar for busy families.

I had to put a new nail in the wall to hang this up but I like where it is and I enjoy being able to see everything on it quickly and easily.

I use these calendars every year because it's the only one that has enough space to write everything in for my family.

I have ordered the FLylady calendar for several years now and I love it. This year I decided to check if I could find something comparable on Amazon. While browsing I found Amy Knapps Big Grid Calendar & decided to give it a try.

When the calendar arrived, I felt that it was very comparable. The height of the page is about the same. The page on the Amy Knapp Calendar is wider. The box for each day on the calendar is very close in size with the exception that on the Amy Knapp Calendar there is a blue section at the bottom of each day that says "Dinner Menu" & leaves room to write in what you have planned for dinner that night. (This takes up the equivalent space of 1 1/2 lines of the Flylady Calendar.)

Each month does have a suggested list of to do's for that month called "Monthly Projects".

On August the "Monthly Projects" lists has:

Sort and Inventory Fall/Winter clothing, coats and boots
Update your address book and/or Christmas card list
Make your holiday shopping list
Talk to your kids about their Halloween costumes
Research and discuss spring vacation plans
Make sure your family's eye exams are up to date
Make sure your family's immunizations are up to date.

Instead of the name of the month being centered on the page like the flylady calendar has it, the Amy Knapp Calendar has the name of the month on the left side of the page & the "Monthly Projects" list is to the right, so the list does not eat up actual calendar space.

The pages on both Calendars seem to be the same type of paper and a comparable thickness. The pages on the Amy Knapp Calendar may be slightly thinner, but I don't think it's by much.

I've been using this calendar for a few years now, and it's really great. Several years ago I saw the Sandra Boynton moms' calendar and didn't care for the cute characters, so I set out to find something else. This calendar suits the same needs with the cute factor.

Pros:
-Each month is over two pages.
-Each day has several faint lines, making it easy to write in several items on one day.
-The layout is very simple and clean looking (at least before you fill it up with events!).
-The paper is regular paper (not the glossy kind that many calendars are printed on), so you can erase pencil entries completely.
-There are several reminders along the sides for tasks to complete that month (inventory pantry, check holiday card list, etc.)--though honestly I don't use them myself.
-And my favorite--the calendar runs over 17 months, starting in August. So the 2013 calendar goes from August 2012 to December 2013. I love this! Anyone with school-aged children likely starts the new calendar in late summer, not January. Because of this feature I can write out the entire school year in one sitting over the summer instead of filling in a new calendar in December.

Cons:
-The paper is on the thin side, and markers bleed through. But I write in pencil anyway, so this isn't a problem for me. Regular ball point pens don't bleed through, though.

This is probably my 3rd or 4th year using an Amy Knapp big grid calendar. I always order them when they first come out. It nice and big with plenty of room to write all the family stuff on. I wish the paper were a little thicker, but I compensate by not using felt tip markers on it, and it's not so thin that I'd rate it less than 5 stars. I like that it isn't like some of the family calendars with grids for family members. I don't use my calendar that way so this one is great.

I have used this calendar for 2 years now and hand enjoyed it for the most part. However I didn't take advantage of all that it had to offer like the meal planning section. I wanted to, but just got to busy to keep hip with it. I loved this calendar. My only con is that it is a 17 month calendar so I end up not using 5 months since I already have one. I wish I could get one that began with January.

After about 5 years of using the More Time Moms calendar, I saw this at Border's and decided to give it a try.

They are just about the same, minor differences only.

The size of each day are about the same, but the Big Grid has less lines for you to write appts on, but has a "dinner menu" feature at the bottom for you to write the day's meal(s) on, instead. I personally only used this feature maybe 4 to 5 weeks out of 52.

The stickers are just about the same, not important enough to me to care about. The big grid has one hole for hanging, the MTM has two... I prefer two but its not a deal breaker.

Both calendars open to two pages per month. Both calendars bleed through unless you use Papermate felt tip pens (yay, no bleed through!) or a pencil.

The biggest difference that I have found, which in my case is going to tip the scales toward returning back to the More Time Moms calendar, is the pocket on the back cover. It holds quite a bit, and wish my big grid had one. I need that for sports schedules, school calendars, etc., and without it my fridge looks like a wasteland of paper.

Some customers have complained about the price of the MTM, but I think 18 dollars is pretty reasonable. Anyway, hope this helps...
