Make yourself a perpetual calendar, and you'll never have to buy a calendar again.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes or less

Here's How:

  1. Print a copy of the perpetual calendar.
  2. Cut out all of the pieces. If you have a two-inch hole punch, you can use that to cut out the numbers.
  3. Laminate the pieces to make them more durable. (Clear shelf liner will work too).
  4. Then, attach a magnet to the back of each piece.
  5. Now, laminate your sheet of scrapbook paper. This will serve as your calendar page.
  6. Place the laminated scrapbook page on your fridge, and arrange all of the magentic calendar pieces on top of it. Reset the calendar at the beginning of each month.

Tips:

  1. Want to hang your perpetual calendar on the wall? Just affix your scrapbook paper to a cookie sheet, and use that as the base to your calendar.
  2. Perpetual calendars make a great gift. Surprise someone with their own custom calendar.
  3. Save all of the business card magnets that come in your junk mail, and reuse them in projects like this
