If you visit any stationery store in Tokyo you will find aisles upon aisles devoted to calendar keeping. Not only are there tons of options for calendars and datebooks but there are tons of styles of these tiny stickers to help keep your appointments, duties, birthdays and other special events organized. I am a big fan of using my paper datebook and I couldn’t resist picking up a new set of calendar stickers at each stationery store I visited.I bought some basic green washi dots to mark my work schedule and some basic see through colored squares for random appointments like board meetings and book group. Most of the stickers I purchased are cat-themed. I use the cats and some other stickers I have in my stash to mark parties, coffee dates, birthdays and anniversaries. These stickers are the most literal calendar stickers. I just started using them to mark doctor’s appointments, car repair appointments and classes. I love looking at my month-at-a-glance page and seeing the cats, washi tapes and other stickers highlighting the fun activities each month. Leave it to Japan to make something cute and practical! When it comes to kawaii calendar organization, Japan Does It Better!
