Do You Hang a Calendar in Your Home?

Do You Hang a Calendar in Your Home?

It's that time of year when there are pretty handmade calendars surrounding us. There are also the more traditional kind with silly photos of dogs, beloved cartoons or comics and of course pictures of baby kittens. With all our new tech devices being used in the home, I'm curious do you still hang a calendar in your home?

Calendars just seem like a good idea. They help us circle dates in advance or keep tabs on things we've volunteered our time for. That said, most of us have a computer program or device that does that for us.

In my own home, I've picked up calendars over the last two years and they've lasted for all of a week before they've gone by the way side. My phone, personal planner (excuse me, my nerd is showing) and computer keep me abreast on the daily things I have to do and, more importantly, what day it actually is.

Still, after cruising through my local mall yesterday, I was still drawn to the large display of silly calendars because it still feels like I should own one. I see all the pretty artisan made versions online (like this one pictured above) and want to buy them all. What is it about days and times that we're compelled to keep track of and do we really need to in the same fashion anymore? Share your thoughts on your own routines below.
