Circa Balanced Life RefillGray Junior 1313
The same, but different, again!
I rarely write reviews, but in this case I wanted to share my displeasure. As previous a reviewer noted, these refills do not have separation tabs denoting the month. This is basic element that most quality planners include. I know that my world will go on without monthly tabs, but it is a bothersome change to an otherwise useful product. Frankly, I do not understand why they were omitted. What I find even more frustrating is that I switched to the Balanced Life Planner after Levenger changed the design of its circa weekly calendar in 2012. That version omitted monthly tabs (and a monthly calendar) as well. To cure that problem, I purchased a circa monthly pull-out calendar. I thought I was being smart by switching to another calendar system, but I was wrong.

I have been using the Balanced Life planner for a few months and love it. I wanted to get a jump on 2013, so ordered the refill for each of the four quarters. I chose just the refill because I already have a cover and it is super easy to re-load (plus less waste of plastic covers).
However, I was disappointed when I received the refills. The refill pages do not include a cover page indicating which months are included. Also, there were no monthly tabs to separate the months!
I guess that next year I'll be looking at a cover page that is for Oct-Dec 2012. I'm most disappointed with the lack of dividers as they were a handy way to find the overall monthly calendar quickly.
I would have expected Levenger to include everything in the refill except for the plastic cover.
