Circa Monthly Tabs Pullout Calendar Compact
I like the month tabs
I like that the tabs are sturdy and last the year through and that I can rely on them to use them to go back to a previous month if I need to.

Wishing for refill changes
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.
