After visiting a number of stores, I finally found one at Walmart for $12 I think. It was perfect! Not too big or small, magnetic, dry erase and cute! It even came with a couple double ended dry erase pens.
As soon as I got home, I immediately opened it an hung it up in the predetermined spot with the provided command hooks. Loved it! I started to fill in the calendar with all the things I needed to remember. I used it for a few weeks and was not happy with how messy it looked. The spot that is provided for you to write on gets small really quick when you need to write more then 2 things a day. So back to Pinterest I went to look for ways to organize my calendar. I didn't have much luck, so I got creative! Here is what I did.
Thing you need:
Computer/ printer or scrapbook numbers
First I measured how wide the magnets were and made a circle on Word the same size. I then made a text box inside the circle and put the number in it. I then picked out what color I wanted. I copied it and pasted 30 more times! It worked so much better then having to make each one and making sure it was the same size. :-) then I just went back into each one and changed the numbers.I also made some extras for doctors appointments and paydays - Dr. Appt., Pay Day.I printed them out!
|All the date circles printed!|
Next it was time to cut each and every one out! I made the out line a little thick so it would be more forgiving to mistakes ;-). Once they were all cut out, I put a bit of Mod Podge on one side of the magnets, added a number circle and Mod Podged over the whole thing. Once they dried they looked fantastic!

|Love this stuff!|
Once they were all dry, I just added them to my calender! I love the look. Please excuse my handwriting and poor photo quality, I was so excited about this post.
|The magnets fit perfect inside the allotted date spot!|
|I use this as my meal planner too|
The space off to the right I use for any notes or non grocery items we need, like diapers, toilet paper etc.
