I have one on the wall at home and work. ds 12 has one in his room every yr. i will be buying another one this yr. the calendar on the wall helps give us a visual reminder and the kids dentists gives us stickers with appts on it so we put those on the calendar too
Yes and no; I haven't had to buy one in years. We seem to get them free from several places with no problem. We already got a really nice one from the Washington Post in yesterdays paper for 2014 and it has nice roomy blocks to write things for each day and some really beautiful pictures of the local DC metro area. Then I know we'll get at least 2 of our local county by the end of the year.
