Filofax month on 2 pages
Like I said, I really like this setup. But, I needed to do just a slight tweak. Having a standard 6-row format every month doesn't let me see the "shape" of the month. I like to be able to see at a glance what day of the week the first/ last day of the month falls on, and seeing the shape of the month also helps me in some way I can't quite figure out.
So, I outlined each month with a pen, which you can see in my photo at the top of this post. I chose October because it had the least amount of personal stuff written in. But, you can still see my birthday indicated (mark your calendars!!!!!).
I prefer the weeks to begin on Mondays (since my weekly planner weeks begin on Mondays, and to keep the weekend days together) but I know some people (especially in the US) prefer a Sunday start. I've seen monthly calendars that combine Saturday and Sunday into one square, to have 6 columns instead of 7 or 8, but I need the weekend days to each have their own square. I prefer 8 columns, with the extra column for notes.
How do you like your monthly calendars to appear?
