I have reviewed several WeekDate products over the years, including the brand-new Academic WeekDate planner I reviewed here last week, the WeekDate White wipe-off wall planner, the WeekDate monthly calendar, and the WeekDate weekly planner several years in a row. I adore them.
So imagine my dismay when I found out a few months ago this company might not make planners for 2014. WeekDate is a very small company, and their products are all made entirely in the US, no overseas printing, which is more expensive than big-company mass production. They didn't know if they would be able to afford to continue production.
So I was extremely relieved when they pulled through after all and were able to print 2014 planners!
The 2014 WeekDate weekly planners are available in four colors: this sky blue "Fresh Focus," grassy green "Grounded," red "In Control" and black "New Exec."
But it folds out with loads of writing space! There are sections to write monthly recurring events, weekly recurring events, and your daily specifics.
At the top you write monthly recurring events, for example things that happen on the third Thursday or last Monday of each month. There is a color coding system to show you which week of the month you are in. Then look up and down the column to see everything happening that day.
The space below the current weeks shows your recurring weekly events. So those after-school activities, weekly meetings and trash pickup day only get written once, and are visible all the time. So when you need to make an appointment weeks in advance, you ALREADY KNOW what's happening that day, without having to rewrite it week after week!
At the left of each Monday there is a space to write that week's tasks and goals.
A new feature this year: monthly calendars! These are great for overviews of bills due, deadlines, travel and holidays.
Another new feature this year: the planner can fold into a tent shape to stay propped up on your desk!
And all of this folds up so slim and light!
So now you have a choice of which type of WeekDate planner to use! If you have monthly recurring events, you want the 2014 WeekDate planner. If you have weekly recurring events but not monthlies, you want the Academic WeekDate I reviewed here last week.

I really appreciate WeekDate sending me this planner to review. I really hope they are able to continue producing planners! These products are too awesome to go extinct.
