Monthly calendars in a grid format with space to write each day are especially useful for planning ahead in day per page planners. Even in weekly planners the monthly grids are great for a quick glance at what’s coming up. I use mine to easily see bills due, holidays, travel, my kids’ school events, deadlines, blog post planning, on and on. Some people like to use monthly grids to record the weather, health symptoms, or nature sightings like when birds migrate, flowers bloom or leaves turn for easy comparison month to month or year to year.
It’s easy to see patterns in monthly grid calendars, especially for recurring events. I make a note in my monthly calendars on days I exercise, S for strength and C for cardio. I can easily see when I’m reaching my exercise goals, or when I’ve gone too many days without exercise. I also use my month calendars as an index of events, so I can quickly see what happened each day. It’s a great reference.
How do you use the monthly grid calendars in your planner?
