Review - Polestar Family Calendar

Happy October! 

I am so excited to write this review for the 2013 Polestar Family Calendar! This is one of my favourite household tools, and I have recommended this calendar to so many people over the years. I started using it in 2008, after searching and searching for something that would work for our family size, activities, meal planning, to do lists, etc. I wanted everything in one place. Last year was the first time in five years that I did not have a Polestar Calendar and man, did I miss it. I am so happy to get back to this practical tool for 2013.

This bestselling calendar provides a flexible, spacious format for recording the entire family's daily activities. Features include:

* three-part daily planning guide
* monthly double-spread planning pages
* weekly To Do/To Buy lists
* ample space for meal planning and messages
* unique reference pages including Items Loaned & Borrowed; Family Profiles;
* Dates to Remember; 2013 and 2014 planning calendars
* sturdy inside back-cover pocket
* perforated corners and tear-out shopping lists
* plus encouraging weekly quotes

The cover artwork is always lovely...

Here are my well-used copies from 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. You can see that they all held up very well, which is saying a lot for all that this busy family put them through...

Take a look at the planning calendar pages from one of my past calendars. It is a two-page spread (only one shown here)...

I really like how large the boxes are for each day. They provide ample room for me to record all of our activities. I use a different colour for each of us. Here is my colour plan:

If you are looking for an all-in-one, simple yet thorough calendar to organize your family, I highly recommend the Polestar Family Calendar.
