I cant be the only person who has spent years fighting with wall
calendars. The holes in them are often so close to the edge that as
soon as you hang them on a nail in the wall, the paper rips right by the
hole. Over the years I have cussed repeatedly, applied paper clips,
tape, and cussed more, and even trashed a few otherwise usable
Worse yet, when they are finally hanging, if you have enough humidity in
the house, like from bathing or using a humidifier, the calendar curls.
I just happened to be hanging my calendar when the hole ripped. I was
also eating some potato chips, which I had sealed the bag with some of
those spring loaded plastic clip devices you can buy almost anywhere to
keep bags sealed. I think they are sold as "power clips". I grabbed
one of them, and clipped the calendar in it. PROBLEM SOLVED, except
there was no hole in the clip to hang it on the wall. A few seconds
later with a 1/4" drill bit and my cordless drill, and I had a hole in
the clip's handle. Making sure the head of my nail was not over 1/4", I
slipped the clip on the nail, and the calendar is hanging properly, and
will be easy to change next month.
The clip is about 4" wide, so the calendar should not curl. If it does,
I'll look for a wider clip, or could probably glue a thin strip of
aluminum to it, so it covers the whole width of the calendar.
I've been fighting with calendars for over 60 years, always wishing
there would be a better way...... NOT NO MORE!
PS. I bought a three pack of those clips at the "Dollar Tree" store for
a dollar.... Guess I'll have to buy a few more packs now!!!!
