I'm a long time user of this calendar in the Pocket size (3.25" x 6.5"). I love that I can just drop it in my purse or tote and have it readily available. Today I received my 2014 pocket calendar and I have to say that I don't like the lined monthly calendar pages. I prefer the previous versions that had the open, free form slots for filling in the calendar. While its not a deal breaker, I definitely prefer the previous unlined versions. Also new for 2014, the calendar is now called Compass (it used to be called the Date Manager) and the cover is now a dull, drab-looking blue instead of the preferred vibrant green cover (the cover protector is still present in 2014). The 2014 calendar retains all of its same great features with the only two changes being the lined monthly calendars and the product name / cover color change. It still remains a great product at a great value.

I wanted a small monthly calendar to keep in my purse. I had a cheap one this size from the discount store. But I wanted a nicer one. Although the dimensions of this planner are very good, the way the pages are laid out is not good. The blocks for each day are way too small. there are plenty of lines for notes at the bottom, but then they also have a bunch of space beside each week for notes. Takes up too much precious space. Id prefer no notes on the side and smaller blocks for Sat/Sun to make the other blocks larger.
Comments about Monarch Compass Wire-bound Monthly Planner - Jan 2015 - Dec 2015:
I've been using a Franklin planner for 20 years. I've tried all the sizes and prefer the Monarch size since I can fit folders etc in the planner and not have extra bulk to carry. I wish there were more design options with the calendar and more planner options.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
