Giveaway: Neu Year

This giveaway is no longer accepting entries. Thanks to all who participated!

Yesterday, we shared our mammoth frame – a frame built for the sole purpose of displaying our Neu Year calendar. Because, you guys, this calendar is awesome. (Yeah, we said that 5 times yesterday, too!) So to kick off this year with a bang, we’ve teamed with Jesse and James of Neu Year to punch 2013 in the throat!

Here’s the deal. (And it’s such a deal, that we’re going to break this thing down.)

  • It’s big. Like, 27″x39″ big. But it’s also designed beautifully – so much so, we framed it (broken record, yeah, yeah) – and you can see the whole year at once. No flipping through pages or clicking your mouse; it’s all there. The whole year.
  • Better yet, there are no gaps between months. Nope, the days flow from one to the next; there’s no jumping to the next screen or (again!) flipping the page, making the year flow better.
  • The weeks start with Monday. Monday! (You know, for visual clarity.) Neu Year focuses on 52 weeks, not 12 months.
  • You saw that we chose to frame ours vertically, but it’s 2-sided with the option to hang yours horizontally.

Simply put, this calendar just makes sense. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of calendars (right, Scott?). The organizational nut in me loves it – and really, how many people do you know bring up “calendar talk” over brunch with their friends? Because we do. Yup, we honest to goodness are so smitten with this calendar, that we discuss it over eggs.

But let’s talk about what’s in it for you. We’ve teamed up with Jesse and James to give 3 lucky readers the Neu Year calendar of their choice! Choose between the 2013 Uncoated or 2013 Dry Erase (ooh, see? We won’t even make you build your own frame to write/wipe your deadlines!).

  • Up for grabs: Neu Year calendar of winner’s choice; 3 winners!
  • To enter: Simply comment on this post and let us know, how do you plan to punch 2013 in the throat?
  • For additional entries: Share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter, then come back and leave a comment letting us know. (One additional comment for each method – up to 2 extra entries!)
  • Giveaway ends: Tuesday, January 8th, at 5pm CST
  • Shipping restrictions: None. Neu Year will ship anywhere in the world!
  • And just because: YBH readers get 30% off all orders through January 31st using the code YellowBrickHome.

The lucky dog winner will be selected using and announced on Wednesday, January 9th. Good luck and happy entering!

  1. I’m planning on putting this calendar up in my classroom. With 6 grades of elementary school kids a day, I can’t punch 2013 in the throat. (I’d be in the principal’s office.) However, I can teach my kids to have a really awesome year!

  2. this calendar makes me happy – i could always use more organization in my life, so much so that one of my goals for this year is to be more organized :) 2013 better watch out because when i have all my sh*t together i am going to be unstoppable!

  6. Awesome calendar! I plan to punch 2013 in the throat by getting all my little projects that I’ve been avoiding done this year.

  7. I’m going to punch 2013 in the face by actually working toward attainable goals. In the past, my goals have been lofty and not normally things I can actually accomplish. This year I’m setting myself up for success! This calendar would be awesome!

  10. That calender is awesome!
    I would punch 2013 in the throat by getting super organized with a brand new calender.

  11. I’m hoping to better my work-life balance in 2013! How’s that for a karate chop (more sneaky/stealth than a punch) to the throat?! :)


  12. I’m planning on punching 2013 in the throat by de-cluttering. I am in college, and my parents are planning on moving to Africa this year (talk about being punched in the throat!), so I have been packing up my childhood room over Christmas break. I’ve officially caught the cleaning bug and am excited to go back to school to simplify my life there. Three cheers for organization!

  13. I really like this calendar! I work in an environment of electronic calendars, but find I sometimes crave precisely this kind of big-picture view (and this is a nice clean look to boot. I’ve got several major, concurrent projects this year, and am envisioning the milestones for each in a different color to help me better allocate people’s time. Several of the people I work with are visually oriented, so it could become a good reference tool in meetings to illustrate how slips in one area can affect other projects.

  14. this would be awesome. im in the process of buying, thus designing, my first *home* (taking LOTS of inspiration from you both) and this would be perfect!

  15. I’m going to plan many adventures with my husband once he returns home from deployment with the Navy in April! Would love this calendar to help us organize those plans!

  16. I would really like to display this calendar at work! Personally though, I plan to punch 2013 in the throat by paying off all of my credit card debt. I keep saying I’m going to do it, well now’s the time!! I’m determined to knock it out!!

  17. Sweet giveaway! I haven’t found the right calendar yet, so this would be awesome. I’m going to punch 2013 in the throat by spending less time staring aimlessly at my computer and more time doing things!

  18. I’m going to punch 2013 in the throat by getting on with my life instead of being afraid of it! (Or it’s going to punch me in the throat.)

  19. What an awesome calendar! I love when weeks start on Monday’s! I’m going to focus on increasing my trail-running mileage this year.

  20. Love the calender! 2013 is the year of the New Job for me, which is terrifying but exciting. :)

  21. What a beautiful and useful calendar. I plan on punching 2013 in the throat by keeping very organized in preparation for the arrival of my third child–a girl after two boys–in June. Our family is so excited to meet her and we’re beginning preparations. Yeah for 2013!

  22. Thanks for the giveaway Kim + Scott! I plan on punching 2013 in the throat in a lot of ways, but primarily in my health & wellness. I’ve completely transitioned into only organic foods, and am watching my portion sizes so I can lose some weight (I’ve already lost 2 pounds). Biggest part of this so far: signing up for a 5k! I signed up for The Color Run in late May here in Omaha, and can’t wait to punch that in the throat, either!

  23. Nice giveaway! I plan on punching 2013 in the throat losing 10 pounds!

  24. Love being able to see it all at once, and still have room to write what’s going on! The frame you guys made looks amazing. I plan on making life breathless by getting out a whole lot more (which goes along with finding more dog-friendly things and restaurants around here) than I did in 2012, and doing even more to conquer my frequent migraines. Also, shoot more film. It makes me so damn happy, even if it costs more than digital. :)

  37. Ooo, I’ve always secretly wanted to punch something in the throat! 2013 is gonna get it as I go 100% paleo and finally get on top of my health/fitness. Thanks for the chance!
