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!).
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!
