We have two careers and two busy kids in our household, and with everyone going different directions, synching individual calendars or electronic schedulers just doesn't work for us. Good old paper still proves to be the best collaboration tool, and a shared calendar, posted in a very visible location in the house, helps us stay connected and avoids the embarassement of double and triple scheduling.

I've used this Boynton calendar for many years to keep our family organized. The calendar has 'swim lanes' for each family member (up to 5). We use the first four columns for family members and the fifth serves as a 'collective' place to mark major events and travel that affect us all. The first rule is when something is scheduled, it goes on the calendar. The best part? It completely solves the "I didn't know you had that scheduled!" argument, because the second rule is to always check the Boynton calendar first before making the commitment!

And when the year is done, the calendar can be a nice rememberance of what happened during a year. For instance, when the kids are small, you can make notes to chart their progress. Going back years later, it's a real trip down memory lane.

If you're keeping up with one or two people or just need to refer to dates, lots of calendars will meet this requirement. But if you have to track multiple people in the household, this is an indispensible tool. Just buy one (I just did!).

This calendar is great for those of us with lots of things to do and places to be. There are some things that could be improved, though. For example, the calendar comes in a list style instead of block style; for me, this makes it more difficult to take a "quick look" as I often know what day of the week it is but not necessarily the date. This style does, however, leave lots of room for writing. Secondly, while the cartoon decorations are cute they are in the way, sometimes even covering up the days of the week; to me, they are just distracting. The calendar comes with stickers with the typical things like "No School," "Doctor's Appointment," etc, etc, but it also comes with stickers that say "Camping" and "Concert," of which there are far more than the ones that most people typically use (who goes on 8 camping trips over the course of the year?!). It does come with a magnetic dry-erase contact board which is great for writing in often-used numbers. Overall, its a nice calendar but not the most user-friendly for me; I wouldn't purchase it again.

I buy two of these calendars every year. One for home and one for work.
It is perfect for work because I have four employees working under me. I know at a glance how many employees will be showing up for work on a given day. I live by this calendar.
It's also great at home to keep track of my husband and my two daughters who are off at college. I highly recommend this calendar for anyone with multiple schedules to track.

Using a write-on calendar for keeping track of my family's daily activities, appointments, travel plans, etc. may seem archaic in an electronic age, but it works best for me. This 16-month calendar has 5 columns for each month for me to fill in which is perfect for my 4-member family and one column for 'General'. It has a large size and is easy for me to read where it hangs on the wall and easy for me to add to, edit, look ahead at to avoid conflicts, etc. I have been using this calendar for 10 years and still prefer it over computers, cell phones, electronic pads, etc. I have a college degree in electronics engineering, have built my own computers from scratch, have about every electronic gadget imaginable, but still prefer Sandra Boynton's Family Calendar for keeping track of my family's daily activities. It works great for me!

My daughter loves Sandra Boynton and as it also came with stickers I thought this would be great for keeping track of her life with her army husband,4 kid and the doberman.However the "unconventional" setup-not lined up in 4 to 5 weeks rows but the month by days in one long row-was not user friendly for her. As this also happened on a couple of other calendars I bought, I wish there could be more with inside preview pictures as well.

The price can't be beat. Most of the stickers it comes with are useless to me, but that's because we homeschool so most of the events do not apply to us. My younger child seems to understand the month much better now with this layout. The days are clearly numbered from 1 to 31 or whatever from top to bottom. The days of the week are clearly visible as well. The only thing weird is that some events span across multiple family members so I have to draw lines across the page to indicate this, but overall, it's an attractive calendar.

We get one of these calendars every year! Why?

1) The format is great for keeping track of who is doing what, where, when, and with whom. This is CRUCIAL in our family of six. Unfortunately, the calendar only has five columns, but it's enough and we make it work.

2) We had a "Simpsons" calendar like this once, and it was fine, but the Boynton one is more fun. The backgrounds, colors, and themes change for every month, keeping it from getting boring.

3) We love the stickers! There are word stickers to highlight special events ("vacation", "school event", "big game", etc.), as well as funny Boynton animal stickers just for fun. I do wish the sticker pages would get updated - there just aren't enough "No School" or "Half-Day" stickers, and we don't plan ahead for things like "Library". After several years of calendars, Boynton should poll the calendar users about which stickers get used, and re-balance the sticker pages accordingly. Maybe next year!

and 4) the POCKET. This one has a pocket that hangs at the bottom for extra stuff, papers and such ("$100 bills" it helpfully -- haha -- suggests!). This is truly a brilliant improvement.

It was at first a little difficult to get used to the format of not having each day down a column, and that can make it tedious to add events / activities that happen, say, every Tuesday. But, oh well. We love this calendar, and our family coordinates much more smoothly because of it.

No improvements from the 2011 version, but that's fine. It's a 17-month calendar, August 2011 to December 2012, so we started this one now with the school year, and we already have the full school calendar on it (holidays, half-days and such).

Five stars - and we'll buy it again for 2013!
