Dana’s found a great way to squeeze some utility out of page-a-day calendars:
My toddler loves to color using any surface that she can find. I always need paper to hand to her while I’m trying to cook or clean up in the kitchen, but I hate to waste sheets of paper for her to scribble one line per sheet. Who doesn’t have at least one of those page-a-day calendars that sits on the counter, stuck on the same page day after day? (We have two.) Each day I tear off a few pages from the calendar and she can color on the back. It’s a great way to entertain her while I get things done, and it reuses paper.
I’ll bet you can get those calendars on sale all over the place these days!
