I sometimes wonder if my brother and I are single-handedly keeping the printed yearly calendar business alive. Honestly, I buy 52 calendars every year. The people at Staples or the 99 Cent store must find me very odd, purchasing 2012 Calendars in October, November and December. The good news is they are much cheaper at that time of year!
