Magnetic Monthly Planner
Not What I Expected
This calendar looks great and it is highly magnetic, which means it doesn't slide down the fridge door. However, a HUGE issue I have with it, is that I can't get it to erase. I purchased Expo Dry Erase markers to go with it (since NONE come with the product, not even one) and they don't erase at the end of the month. There are spots on my calendar where I have even tried to erase it and used a little elbow grease and Windex, and there's a spot now where the surface rubbed off. It seems like a great product, and it is really a disappointment that I can't erase anything on it. I am currently debating on whether to trash it or cut it up into little magnets to stick on the backs of my nick nacks and stick them to the fridge. I guess it's back to a good ole paper calendar. If I were "that person" I'd be calling asking for a refund, but I have had the calendar now since August, thinking I'm the weird one who can't find the magic power to erase the darn thing.

This "dry erase" board won't erase!
I am so surprised to read the reviews on this product because I can NOT erase this board without a LOT of elbow grease. I have to really work at it and have even rubbed some of the coating on the board off trying to erase it. Very frustrating and disappointing. I'm gonna have to go back to the weekly wet erase board I was using before.

I like the calendar as it was hard for me to find a dry erase calendar that is a magnet. One thing the description doesn't mention is the week starts on Monday. It's a bit confusing when I look at it because I'm so used to the the week starting on a sunday on a calendar! I do wish it were "normal" in that way.

We have 2 of these on our fridge, 1 on each door. 1 is used to keep track of all of my kids' activities. My daughter (8) especially loves having the visual reminders so easily accessible. We use our 2nd one to plan our weekly menus, making meal planning for our fam of 5 MUCH easier. Again, my kiddo loves seeing what's coming up. Really helps us to not forget to defrost/marinate items, as well as notice when certain dinner plans will be impossible given kid activities that day. My google calendar is great and much used, but having these calendars that are easily visible to *everyone* in the family all the time have really helped us stay on top of things. Highly recommended!!
