Go Beyond Your Phone: Why You Should Still Be Using Paper Calendars

If you think paper calendars are outdated, you might want to rethink your position. Paper calendars still hold a very useful purpose. In fact, if you don't have at least one paper calendar at your home, or office, you're doing yourself a disservice. You may think that all you need is the electronic calendars on your cell phone, but paper calendars can be a great benefit to you. If you're not sure how a paper calendar will benefit you, read the information provided below. Here are just four of the reasons why you should use a paper calendar. 

They're Visible

Because paper calendars are hung on the wall, they provide a constant reminder of the things you need to do throughout the month. In fact, each time you look at your calendar, you're reminded of birthdays, anniversaries, and other important events that are happening that month. You don't get that constant reminder when your calendar is locked away in your phone or on another digital platform. 

They Can't Be Deleted

If you have all of your important appointments and events stored on your phone, you need to worry about glitches. One glitch and everything you need to remember can be wiped away, completely removed from the device. Not only that, but if your device is lost or broken, you lose all of that vital information. You won't have that problem when you use a paper calendar. All of the important notes you jot down on your paper calendar will stay put, providing you with access to all the information you need month-after-month. 

They Can Be Repurposed 

If you haven't bought a paper calendar because you're worried about the environment, you should know that calendars can be repurposed. Most paper calendars come with beautiful artwork that's displayed with each month. That means each calendar you buy will come with at least twelve different pictures that can be framed as artwork. Best of all, you can find calendars that provide pictures of everything from flowers to wild animals. 

They Create a Personal History

If you're not using paper calendars anymore, you're missing out on an opportunity to create a personal history for yourself. Each time you jot down notes on your calendar, you create a permanent record of your daily activities. This can provide a timeline for important events such as the countdown to your wedding, or the birth of a child.
