Save money and go retro by reusing an old calendar in 09!
Finding a retro calendar is simple and with plenty of years to choose from for 2009 it's sure to be a fun adventure. The first thing to do is to find out what years have the same distribution of days as 2009 by using the repeating calendar calculator. Now that you know what years to look for, hit up eBay or your local thrift store to find a suitable calendar from years gone by.
In just a few minutes I was able to find a cool vintage advertisement calendar on eBay from 1942 for only a few bucks. I also found a Spice Girls calendar which would make an excellent gag gift for my sister!
Looking at the recent years that are repeating in 2009, I found an abundance of pop culture, advertisement and "pinup" style calendars. With this much diversity and rock bottom prices you're sure to find a cheap gift for anyone on your list. Don't forget to include "calender" in your eBay search as I found plenty of interesting retro calendars under this common misspelling.
Just be sure you correct the holidays or warn your recipient since the dates won't always match up. There's no need for them to lose their job for taking the wrong day off on Easter!
