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 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.

Last year I had the MOM calendar. This year I decided to try something different based on the reviews of this calendar. Overall I feel the MOM (more time moms) calendar was better made and had more space on each box (day) of the month. This one has 7 lines per box and the MOM calendar has 9. That little extra space makes a big difference when you're trying to keep track of 5 schedules/activities! Also the MOM calendar has 3 holes to hang it, where this one only had one. For the weight of the calendar I ended up punching 2 more support holes at the top.

The calendar serves its purpose, but the MOM in my opinion was better designed by using all margin space and bigger boxes for each day.

Well, this is a letdown.

The Big Grid Family Organizer turns out to be an ordinary calendar, after all. No, strike that -- ordinary calendars usually have pictures or interesting graphics. This is just a large plain paper calendar, period.

What makes this an "organizer" is the fact that there are seven faint lines printed on each calendar day square. I suppose the sheet of little stickers is cute, but for the purposes of planning, I find it faster to just write the activity than hunt up a sticker to put on the day square.

Realistically, those paper desk blotter calendars are bigger and have more space to write in than this Big Grid family organizer. I wish I had one of those right about now...

There was no "look inside this" on the product page. In order to know what the organizer looked like inside, I had to remove the shrink wrapping from the product...which pretty much makes it unreturnable.

Thanks a lot, Amazon.
