Guide Review - WeekDate Weekly Planner and Wall Calendar

Whether you're planning a party or keeping track of your ongoing activities, organization is the key to success. I've never found a paper planner that was especially good at that because it was time consuming to rewrite recurring events such as monthly book clubs, classes, or family activities. Calendars have always become an annoyance for me when schedules change, and recurring events need to be rewritten. I usually give up at that point and try to remember plans in my head (and everyone knows how well that works!) When planning a special event that requires various steps, there's usually little room to write everything that need to be done in those tiny little boxes.

WeekDate turns out to be a very clever system that solves most of those problems. With a place for weekly activities, monthly activities, daily activities, and once a month to-dos, it makes keeping track of life and life's changes much more simple. And as much as it's a low tech system, it has the benefit of making it easy to see the whole picture, which isn't always possible with a portable electronic calendar. Although these calendars may sound complicated at first, they are really very simple to use once you have it in your hands, your purse, or on your wall.
