Remember this photo?
I posted that photo about a year ago to document the sickness I have with compulsively buying new calendars and spending HOURS re-writing birthdays and anniversaries in each one.
How about these resolutions? Especially this one:
7. Do not buy any more calendars this year. Amen. I have this bad habit of buying new calendars every few months. Not only is this a bad habit financially, but it feeds an already unhealthy office-supply addiction. I buy new ones because I don’t like it when the old ones become messy. But – it takes me a full day to transfer everything (neatly) into the new calendar. So, it also becomes a HUGE waste of time. I’ve ordered my desk calendar for the year and I have a daily planner for my purse. I need NOTHING else. If it gets messy, I must suck it up and deal with it. I will NOT buy a new one!
Well, I lied. I bought another calendar this past weekend and finally filled in all of the important dates. I couldn’t help myself. It was so pretty! And it had this great magnetic closure that makes it easy to throw in a bag and not worry about it getting wrinkled. And it has those cute perforated corners so you’ll always be able to flip to the write page. And it’s pretty! Did I mention that? And that I also needed something to do with all of the new pens I bought during school supply outings? And that the calendar is SO PRETTY!
