Most Useful Calendar EVER
from New Jersey
About Me Quality Oriented
We have used these for 20 years or so. They used to be a thicker paper, but the thinner works also. Any thinner, though, and you would see the calendar and notes through from the backside month. ... Before January, I put everyone's birthday and anniversary on each month, ringing that entire block with a bright pink highlighter. Their ages get changed from the last calendar as I transfer each one. Then I put in when recycling days are in green by circling the date and add a yellow circle for "White Goods Day." If there is any doubt if recycling or trash goes out, just glance at the calendar and see the colors. On the empty "Notes" page, I write info of new neighbors as I meet them. (How did you remember our son's name?!) I add when taxes are due, and whatever else I have from the last calendar. Then I add the "Notes" page from the last calendar to the back of this one. It has important information that I want to keep and refer to whatever time of year. This way I don't have to re-write it and it stays with the current calendar. We buy these every year. BEST CALENDARS EVER!!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these Calendars

I have been buying 2 of these calendars every year from Miles Kimball for over a decade. They were a perfect size for our refrigerator upper door surface, aren't cluttered with distracting graphics, have good sized squares to allow a family of 5 and 3 dogs' schedules to be clearly written, have pre-and post month dates on the main month page & a small reminder of the month shown on the back of the page since each page is used twice in a year. The paper is a bit thicker than copy paper which allows a lot of heavy use without tearing (in our family anyway). A bonus is a telephone reference page on slightly thicker paper. The downside was the magnet didn't work too well on our textured refrigerator door so I just punched holes in the top and hung them from stick on hooks. Perfect.My 2014 calendars just arrived and I was really disappointed. I noticed several things: 1) the paper is much flimsier, 2) the date numbers are smaller and 3) the date squares are smaller because 1) the top & side borders have been made bigger, a waste of space in my book. Also, the opposing month at the bottom corner is missing. I had an old calendar that lists the producers of this calendar so I e-mailed them with my concerns. No wonder the calendar is cheaper and different! The calendars are made by a home based business that Miles Kimball has used for 45 years. This year they dropped the makers without telling them BUT Miles Kimball copied their format and are selling them as their own. I am a long time customer of Miles Kimball and am *very* disappointed that they would do something so blatantly wrong.Don't buy these imposters. You're wasting your money.
I buy this for a friend.

I buy this every year for my friend. She puts it on her refrigerator and just loves it. She puts all of her families appointments on it and it is easy for every one of them to see.

I have ordered this calendar every year for many, many years. It works exactly like it should. Perfect size. I have never had any problems with it.

from grand blanc, mi
I have been buying this calendar for over 20 years and would really miss it if Miles Kimball ever quits making it (so don't)! I keep this on the refrigerator. It's out of the way and yet visible to remind us of our schedule. I've always found the magnet to be VERY strong so I don't understand the reviews where the magnet won't hold....maybe it has to do with the material of the refrigerator? Anyway, I'm a happy customer, thanks!
