One of the best things about January 1 is the opportunity to start a new calendar or date book. There is something fresh and exciting about a new, blank calendar; it’s so full of opportunity and potential! Despite being a big fan of MobileMe.com and being hopelessly attached to my iPad and iPhone for all my data, I still love keeping a hard calendar or date book. And the best part is with an old fashioned calendar, you have backup in the event of a technical disaster. Here is a sampling of some of the cool calendars for busy moms and housewives:
Mom’s Plan It Calendar
The Original Planning Calendar for Moms!
A favorite among moms and kids, The Mom’s Plan It 17-month 2011 Calendar is a must-have for busy, multi-tasking moms, everywhere. It allows you to track up to 5 family members’ schedules; complete with everything from parents’ and kids’ contacts, as well as 442 fun stickers to remind you of important appointments and events.
Family Tracker is a new line of smart, timesaving calendars and schedule accessories designed around family life and use.

Another cool product in the Family Tracker family is the Baby Tracker:

Smart, eye-catching designs combined with daily recording charts, create an easy-to-capture, easy-to-read visible snapshot of baby’s day.
