I found a new calendar. It wasn't on sale, but I had a 40% off coupon, and I didn't want to look any further. It has the big, lined squares that I like, and while not exactly matte paper, it's not glossy either, so I can use a pencil on it...that's a big thing for me.
However, if I had noticed one thing about it in the store, it would NOT have come home with me. It runs Monday through Sunday instead of Sunday through Saturday. I made that mistake once before, and I was confused and mixing up dates all year long.
As soon as I noticed this, I sat down with a Sharpie and labels to make it conform to my preference. Luckily it had a blank column on the left, so I moved all the Sundays. (Wow, I feel so powerful!) The former Sunday spaces (on the right side) are now blank, and will probably stay that way.
I'm kind of bummed, because I really love the clean-slate look of a new, blank calendar. This one now looks like somebody who tried to bathe a cat...all scratched up and Bandaid-ed. I'll just live with it (sigh), but it is definitely going on next week's Frugal Friday File as a success.
