New Layout - Ug!!!!
from Birmingham, AL
About Me Quality Oriented
Comments about Magnetic Calendar:
I've bought this calendar for 20 years, but I hate the new layout so much that I may not buy it again. It worked so well to have the first 6 months of the year arranged one after the other. Then you just flip it over, and the last six months work the same way. The way it is now, if I need to fill in a space on the next month, I have to take it off the fridge, turn it over, and flip it upside down. Very inconvenient. PLEASE go back to the way it was all the years before!!!!
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

I do not like the layout of the 2015 calendars I don't like that the next month is behind the front page (ie. Feb. is on the back of Jan.) Also, you no longer have the name of the month on the bottom right hand corner of the calendar page. I have to write them on the bottom of the page so I don't have to turn the page all the way to the top to find the month I want to review. I buy 22 of these calendars each year as gifts to family & friends and they have expressed these same views. In addition, the magnets are not as strong as they used to be. As the old saying goes: "If it ain't broke don't fix it"
Changes made to this item are horrible.

I have been ordering this magnetic calendar for well over 20 years. The calendar this year is horrible. Instead of putting the pages with the next month facing you when you turn the current month's page up, the next month is printed on the back side of the current month. It makes it extremely difficult to look at the two months side by side if you are trying to make appointments, write dates on the calendar, etc. Would definitely not order again if the format stays the same and would not recommend to anyone in this format.
Very Disappointed with 2015 issue
from Brandon, FL
I have been ordering this calendar for about 35 years. Have shared it with others - now have my daughter using it at her home and my sister using it for her 'doggie sitting' appoints. However, we ALL noticed the poor quality of this years' calendar. First, the magnet is so weak it won't hold to the refrigerator. Thankfully I had some left over strip from past calendars. Second, the day blocks are smaller, as witnessed by the extra space at the front and end of each week. But, MOST OF ALL, the layout is awful. Now you have to turn the calendar over, from month to month, to add appointments. I had made several errors before I caught on to this. I always have 'next year' appoints at the end of the year to put on the new calendar. I had added several, just trustingly using the Jan, Feb, Mar, etc order. All of a sudden I noticed the change from sequential placement to back to back placement when I found I was putting appointments on the wrong date. I hope that you can appeal to your production people to return this to its former format, preferably even before you made the days smaller. I don't mind paying a couple of dollars more and neither do the friends I have checked with. I am extremely disappointed with Miles Kimball for allowing this 'quality' change to happen. Now I am losing faith in all items I order from you. Please let me know if I should start looking for a substitute or if you will return to your previous "excellent quality" calendar.
What happened to a great product??
Have been buying this product for years but it has changed. The months are not printed the way they previously had been for ease of use. Now January and February are on one sheet making it very hard to flip over and write on. The calendar actually now is not useful. I had to copy/reprint it all over to line up the months correctly. Why was this changed and will it remain the same in 2016, if so I will not buy again. Really a shame that a really good product changed to a very bad product.

Disappointed with new layout
I have ordered this calendar for many years. It sits on my frig, plenty of space to write dates on. This year the layout changed. The months have always been back to back with the first 6 months being sequential and then turn the pages over - 2nd six months on the reverse (i.e. january and July back to back, etc) so that it was easy to flip up a month to look to the next month. This year however the layout changed so January/February are back to back which makes it awkward to look to the next month - you have to take it down and flip it upside down. I was so disappointed I ended up recopying it to make it as it used to be. I would have given it a 5 star as I have always loved this no frills, very useful calendar.
from upstate, NY
Thank goodness the price was on sale. I would not recommend. I haven't found a metal surface it will stick to!
In use daily
love the magnet so I can see it at a glance on the side of the fridge or easily set the calendar on a flat surface for writing it if i choose. Hint: Return all the calendar pages to the magnet bar each month or the fewer pages will not be held in as the year goes by. I put the next month on the back side so I can easily add dates ahead. I buy this one every year for this ease of use. LOVE IT
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

2015 Calendar printed incorrectly
I have been ordering this same calendar for years. However the 2015 version has been printed wrong. The next month should be on the next page NOT on the reverse side of the current month. This setup completely makes this confusiing and open to marking appointments incorrectly. As an example in previous years February was the next page after January not on the back of the January page. Please have the vendor make a fix for the 2016 version. Thank you
