Easiest Advent Calendar Ever!

I’m terrible at Advent calendars, so I figured what could be easier than circling the date ? I can actually remember that ( I think!) . And what’s easier than using a dry erase marker? A trip to Goodwill, a major score, a printable and :
Christmas Countdown Printable (2)
Since I usually go to GW with the intent of finding something to paint or alter, I am still feeling weird about not doing anything to this frame. But why would you when you find POTTERY BARN frames at GW for $.99!

Of course you buy more than one.
PB Frame
That and a printable and you can’t really get any lazier than that.

Sharing the printable here in case there are any other Advent Calendar challenged people out there!

This is brilliant in it's simplicity. And I love the frame as is- the less work the better IMHO! :)

Great use of the frame and a good idea, although I prefer advent calendars to have chocolates behind each I greedy???? x

What a great idea! You have totally inspired me but I am going frame a "daily to do list" for my youngest daughter. I am so tired of reminding her to empty her lunch pail and hang up her coat after school:)

Gotta make a quick trip to the second hand store after school!!
