Comparable to FLylady Calander
on October 18, 2012
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 noticed that holidays for the UK, Aus, ACT, NSW, SA, SCT, NZL and others as well as US & Can were listed on the Calendar. I'm not sure if the list of holidays is all inclusive.
The only "con" that I noticed is that the Amy Knapp calendar does not have the pocket in the back that the Flylady calendar has.
All in all, I feel like this calendar has the same features that I love about Flylady's & I am pleased with the product.
