For the past several years I have been a diligent purchaser of the annual "Peanuts Weekly Planner Calendar." Those calendars have been my weekly calendar and are what I have used to keep track of all the various duties, events, etc. that I have had to do and attend. This year, the "Peanuts Weekly Planner Calendar" has been completely revamped by the publisher and we now have the PEANUTS 2017-18 MONTHLY/WEEKLY PLANNING CALENDAR.
Gone is the horizontal look of the old "Peanuts Weekly Planner Calendar." The new format features a more traditional book look, typical of most weekly planners. The full colored comics, colored outlays, and slick paper are replaced with smaller, black and white comics, with a high quality paper, but without the glossy finish. Outside of black and white, the only color in the new PEANUS 2017-2018 MONTHLY/WEEKLY PLANNING CALENDAR is Charlie Brown yellow.
Initially, I wasn't for sure if I was going to like the changes made to the calendar. However, I really do like it now. The first several pages contain monthly postings for July 2017 – December 2018. This is followed by the actual weekly planner part of the calendar. Although they are smaller and in black and white, there is a comic for each week of the year. The space given for each day of the week is about the same as it was in the old calendars. At the end of the calendar there is a place for contacts and notes. The calendar also has an elastic/bungee place holder.
Overall, while the PEANUTS 2017-18 MONTHLY/WEEKLY PLANNING CALENDAR is a huge format change, I actually like the new design and intend to continue purchasing and using these calendars in the future.
