I really love this planner because it is thin , lays flat and has no ring binder. I have used it for years, and often I've been able to purchase it at Target or Walmart,, which I prefer to do because the shipping cost for it was almost as much as the cost of the planner. I could not find it in the store this summer, but I didn't really put a lot of effort into looking for it. I decided to order it since it's almost July and it's a teacher's calendar July-July. I am teacher. Next year I plan to find it locally or find another style to avoid the too expensive shipping coast.
