Reviews - What do customers think about Mom's Plan-it Plus 2009 Calendar: With Magnetic Hanger?
Ok for families with one appt per day Oct 13, 2008
I bought this to replace Mom's Family calendar by Sandra Boyton, what a mistake!
We often have more than one event per person per day, and the boxes are 1/2 the size of the old calendar, so there is not enough room to write anything about the appointment or meeting. With a busy family, this will just not work!
I am going to give this away to someone else.
I used to buy Boynton's--now we use this because of the std format Oct 1, 2008
We have 3 kids and a lot of activities to keep track of. I used to use the Boynton's family calendar, which was a great idea, with one column for each family member. However, it's really large and has a vertical format with just one day per row. It always felt a little awkward.
A couple of years ago we switched to this one. This one uses a standard horizontal format (one week per row), and fits on our refrigerator. (I've never had a magnet problem, so maybe the other reviewer just got a bad copy.)
We've been really happy with it. I like the artwork on the Boynton one a little better, but this format just works much better for our family.
Keeps our Family organized Sep 30, 2008
This is my 4th year using the Mom's Plan-It Calendar. It is the best I've found for keeping our 5 member family organized.
Magnet Mishap Sep 24, 2008
I had the calendar hanging on my fridge and after a week, fell off the fridge minus the magnet. There is a definite flaw because the glue was not strong enough to hold the magnet on the back of the calendar & my attempts were futile when trying to put it back together. Otherwise, good enough for a family of five who aren't too "overbooked" with activities, although preferred the location of the fridge door.
The best calendar Sep 9, 2008
This is my favorite calendar ever! This is the second time I've purchased it and I will probably continue to do so as long as they make it. It has the perfect amount of space for my 5 person family and it keeps me organized which I love. It's also very cute. It comes with lots of stickers if that's your thing, but I really don't use them.
