But if you are anything like me, then you like to get your calendars/planners printed or ordered ahead of time.
I consider myself to be a planner/calendar hoarder.... seriously, I can never have too many.
I have my glass whiteboard calendar that hangs behind my desk and I use as a weekly guide.
Hello Planner, which I designed myself.
To be quite honest, I have no idea why I use a variety of calendars, but it seems to work for me. This month, I have already received my 2015 "At a Glance" wall calendar and weekly planner from Shoplet.com! I've used the "At a Glance" planners for a very long time. I love how simple they are in design and how the planners are organized both monthly and weekly. I typically get them from OfficeMax or Amazon, but I decided to get mine from Shoplet.com this year!!
Even though I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of the At a Glance Monthly Planner, I probably will not get much use out of it this year since I am using my Hello Planner everyday now.
The At a Glance Monthly planner is available in two sizes and two colors. I am not a fan of the gold one, but the black one is very nice. The cover feels almost like a soft rubber and seems to be quite durable.
The preview on Shoplet.com makes the lines seem a bit yellowish or light gold; however, I can assure you that the writing lines and grids are a soft gray. The Planner is organized by month and includes a two-page monthly spread followed by a two-page weekly spread. This gives users a lot of room to write in.
The At a Glance 2015 Wall Calendar is a MUST-HAVE tool for me!! I have to have a monthly visual hanging up at all times and I love the new size of the 2015 Wall Calendars! Again, the preview below makes the calendar color seem a bit dingy when it is not so. I used the image below because I do not have my new wall calendar hanging up, but I wanted you all to see how it looks.
The At-A-Glance wall calendar is a big calendar, and measures 12 x 16-1/4 inches. It features a monthly grid on each page with lined blocks as well as a past and future month reference. It starts the day of the week on Sunday rather than on Monday, but this is what I prefer. The pages are perforated, so at the end of each month I can cleanly tear the page from the calendar. This calendar also features a smooth black headband with a copper hanging grommet so it easily hangs from a nail, tack, etc. There is also plenty of room at the top of each month's page where you can add notes, quotes, doodles, etc.
I love the use of clean, modern serif fonts and the overall design. There is not much more I can say about a wall calendar - only that this is one tool I will always have hanging in my office. Feel free to click the images to check out these calendars on Shoplet.com.
Hello Planner! I am able to print it up for any year, edit the pages before I print them, print only the pages I need, and organize it however I want. It really gives me so much freedom to get organized in such a personal way!
I have many more add-ons and Hello Planners in the works, but you are more than welcome to check out what I have available now by clicking the image below.
