But I lost my calendar...in the middle of October. Do I buy another one? I can't bring myself to do that, because I ALREADY have a 2012 calendar ready to go. To avoid trying to keep Post-It notes in order in my purse (because, inevitably, that is what everything gets written on in my world), I decided to make a calendar.
We started with an old journal I had lying around (purchased at Michael's from the $1 bins) that hadn't been used by anyone other than my 4-year old, who simply scribbled on every page he came across. After tearing those pages out, I had just enough left to make a calendar with the 10 or 11 weeks left in the year (wow...really??).
Old journal book
Then add lines with permanent marker to divide each page into 4 equal parts
See...all nice and divided.
Then, add in your month and year at the top of the page and fill in the dates for each week.
I wouldn't suggest doing this all by hand for a full year...it's very time consuming. But to bridge a gap and fill a need for 10-12 weeks, it works quite well. So that's my money-saving tip today.
On a completely unrelated note, I am starting to take a bunch of supplements...fish oil is among them. Let me suggest investing in the "burpless" kind...trust me, you don't want to be burping fishy taste all day. I don't care if you like fish or not. Just a PSA.
