"Why Didn't I Think of That?" Perpetual Daily Calendar

Nearly 13 years ago, I started my blog, “One Good Thing by Jillee,” to help me stay sober after leaving a residential treatment center for alcoholism.

Focusing on “one good thing” per day helped me find real joy and a sense of purpose in my role as a homemaker. It also connected me with so many of you who face your own battles, big and small, within the walls of your home.

Now I’m taking my best tips off the pages of my blog and bringing them into your homes with, “Why Didn’t I Think of That? 365 Tips & Tricks to Solve Life’s Little Problems,” a perpetual daily calendar featuring “one good thing” per day!

Put this calendar somewhere that you’ll see it every single day. Let it serve as a reminder that you aren’t alone in the piles of laundry and dirty dishes and that you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. Together, we’ll navigate the ups and downs of homemaking, one day at a time.

How to Use

  • Notice the different colors and symbols on the pages? They correspond to the category of each tip, helping you know what kind of life hack you're getting for the day.
  • Along with the tip of the day, each page also includes my personal take on the idea.
  • Stumbled on a tip you don’t want to forget? Snap a picture of the page with your phone, or mark the page with a sticky tab for easy reference.
  • Reached the end of the year? Flip the pages back over and start again, or pass it on to a friend!


NOTE: The calendar comes packaged in a protective box. The box may arrive with some damage, but the calendar inside should remain unaffected. Please be aware that the box is not intended for gifting purposes. As such, we are unable to replace damaged boxes.

Love this calendar!

I love this calendar and all the tips inside! It is a great housewarming gift for a home owne!

Why didn't I think of that calender.

Gift to my daughter and daughter-in-law for Mothers day. Very nicely made. They loved it.

Very unique and special calendars!

I have been following Jillee for 10 to 15 or more years, and I love all of her suggestions and tips to make life easier. I d0ecided that these handy calendars would make excellent gifts so I bought four of them. They come sealed and boxed for gifts which I will use for coming Birthdays and Christmas. I'm very tempted to keep one for me! The daily hints would be so worth it!

Why Didn't IThink of That

I was so glad you made this available . Love having the reference in one place. I always thought they were a fun thing too!

Awesome calendar

This is so great. I bought 4 so I could share and need 4 more to share even further. If you prepare another one next year, I will definitely buy them!

I added birthdays on it so I have a perpetual birthday calendar, too!
