Time for a Deal: 5 Places to Buy a Discounted 2014 Calendar
Is there an empty space on your wall just dying for a calendar? Do you like those clever page-a-day box calendars your co-workers have? Have you been writing your appointments down on post-it notes, because in the midst of buying gifts for everyone else in December you forgot to buy yourself a new planner? Relax. We may have already started to make a dent in the first month of the year, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to find a 2014 calendar.
Better yet, when it comes to calendars, being tardy is actually rewarded. A calendar in December is almost always full price, but once you hit January, the price starts to go down. It is one of the few items that will truly lose value with each passing day. Whether you need a wall, mini wall, desktop or box calendar or a weekly or monthly planner, here are the top five places you may want to check to get a steal of a deal.
Until January 28, Barnes and Noble is offering 50% off select 2014 calendars (box, wall, mini wall and planners) while supplies last. Stock up online or in your local Barnes store.
It’s not too late to pick up a “Pooped Puppies”, “The Spirit of Ireland” or “Vintage Mustangs” calendar (among others) in Amazon’s “Deals in Calendars” area. Prices appear to be about 60% off with $14.99 calendars marked down to $6.00.
Maybe you’re the type of person who loves to have a super unique calendar. Before you resign yourself to picking up the only calendar left by the checkout or using the one your local realtor put in your mailbox, visit Calendars.com. They claim to have “the best selection of calendars in the known universe.” You don’t have to punish yourself for leaving your calendar purchase to the last minute by settling for something unoriginal. Current specials at Calendars.com appear to be around 25% off.
Many homes and cubicles have lovely custom made calendars, made up of images from the family memory card. Until January 15, you can still create a personalized calendar for 2014 and at 50% off at Snapfish.com. Use coupon code JANCALS to take advantage of this savings and start thinking of who you’d like to have as Mr. June.
Admittedly, I just stumbled upon Current catalog. They have a small selection of calendars, but they are the cheapest of the bunch at a whopping 75% off. It’s niche, but if you’re looking for a “Mom 17-Month Jotter” for keeping track of the family’s crazy schedule, you can order one for $2. Or, maybe you love the beloved Peanuts characters – a 2014 Mini Day-to-Day Calendar is available for $2.25.
