Circa is an excellent system, and I really enjoy my compact agenda, but I have a few suggestions that would make these agenda refills more flexible:1. I'd like the monthly tab pages to be plain so they can be a permanent part of the agenda. As it stands now, half of the monthly calendar is printed on the tab page, so the tabs have to be replaced every year. The printing on both sides of the tab page also limits the way the agenda can be configured.2. The combination of month-at-a-glance and week-at-a-glance pages works well for me with the addition of some plain lined pages for lists and to-dos. If the monthly and weekly views could stand alone without pages in common, that would increase their flexibility.3. The fold out yearly calendar is useful for an overview of the year, but I would be just as happy with a smaller year-at-a-glance page with no boxes. The boxes are really too small for notes in the compact size, but it would make a good reminder tool if used with simple symbol or color coding.I use a ballpoint pen with my agenda and have had no problems with the paper quality.

The size of the boxes is nice for writing in, and I realize they would be smaller if another column was added. But it is going to take some getting used to that my week starts on Monday. It's not like I don't do things on the weekend, Levenger. I'd also rather have a one page overview of all twelve months rather than (in addition to?) a pull-out calendar. Or a three year/all twelve month overview would be great.

Buy this every year - love it

Comments about Levenger Circa Monthly Tabs & Pullout Calendar Compact:
Love this compact calendar for keeping track of personal finances/billing due dates. The compact size is easy to take along in a bag when I travel and easy to add to a purse for paying bills on the run during the work week when I have precious little time at home. Great for taking small notes on personal matters on the fly. Have been using the compact size for years now and plan to continue.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the monthly tabbed calendar!
I was really happy to see the 2016 tabbed calendar , compact size, for sale as early as July of this year. I ordered it immediately. Even though I maintain an electronic calendar on my phone, I rely on the pen & ink version to keep me straight and to give me the big picture. The only improvement I'd make is to offer an option that starts the week on Sunday. Otherwise the size is perfect to slip into my purse. Please tell me you're not discontinuing the tabs!!
Less (size) is more
from Seattle, WA
I've been using the Compact Monthly Tabs (though I toss the pullout calendar) since I switched from the Junior size in 2007. The amount of space provided on the calendar pages is sufficient for my cryptic notes. Overall, it takes up less space on my desk, making it handy to leave open to the present month to see at a glance. No need for concern about a computer calendar having to be brought up or going down. I also loved the 2-ring notes you used to offer. Fortunately I had the foresight to stock up before you discontinued them.
I prefer the Sun-Sat. calendar format, too. Last year, I tried the Mon-Sun format, and ended up ordering Sun-Sat. I am assuming Levenger is dropping that format entirely. Is this correct? Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Week format is confusing
While I love many of the Circa products, I was very disappointed purchasing these monthly tabs (for the first time). Why does Monday start the week instead of Sunday? For decades I've used other planners where Sunday was always the first day of the week. It was so confusing that I threw out the Circa monthly tabs and replaced them with another company's, whose week format is correct. Of course I had to punch the tabs to make them fit in my notebook, but now I can do my work right. I don't intend to purchase Circa's monthly taps again, unless they adjust the week format to what it's supposed to be--Sunday is the 1st day of the week :)

Love it BUT it's being DISCONTINUED
from Plainfield, IL
I love the monthly tabs and use them in all my planners (yes I have a coulpe). I was unable to locate the Junior tabs online so I chated with a customer service rep...I just found out Levenger is DISCONTINUING THE MONTHLY TABS AND PULLOUT CALENDAR IN ALL SIZES (Letter, Junior, and Compact). This is extremely disappointing to me because I use this product ALL the time and I NEED IT for all my planners/agendas.

I have been carrying this size in my purse for years. I can record my schedule and keep notes. I have older style clear covers with elastic band to hold it closed. Not too bulky since it is monthly.
I love the beginning of the month has goal lists, and behin the month has notes
I love Levenger!
from Lake Placid, FL
I've been using Levenger products for 10 years now and I'm always proud to display my Circa notebooks, my pens, and to use the monthly tabbed calendar pages. As both a reader and a writer I never cease to find something I want in every catalog. Thanks for your commitment to excellence in all you do. It show!
