WeekDate: The high tech calendar for people who love paper.

 

 Balancing the phone between your ear and shoulder... trying to do a million things... suddenly the voice on the phone tells you that your monthly book club or weekly status meeting has been moved to another day of the month or week. While some scramble through each month or week to make the change, the smart person has a WeekDate calendar... makes the change once and Voilà! – done for the year. Only Write It Once. Now, you're that smart person. Welcome to WeekDate.The beauty of the WeekDate planner is you only write each event once. Even for weekly, monthly, on-the-date recurring events.

 

 

Monthlies on top.

Monthlies are activities that occur every month on the same day. For example, your book club or cycling group meets the fourth Thursday of every month.

 

Weeklies on bottom.

Weeklies are events that occur every week such as yoga class that is every Tuesday morning or your Weekly Status Meeting on Wednesday afternoons. This is basically your set weekly schedule.

 

Specifics in between.

Specifics are everyday things that need to go specifically on a date, such as a doctor's appointment, lunch with a friend, or a business meeting.

These specific pages are color coded so you know where you are in the month at all times. (1st week, 2nd week, etc.)

 

Life all over.

To control your life, simply look in one column each day to see all your appointments. But guess what? You only wrote it once!

 

 

Our 2016 Weekly Planner comes in six different cover choices. We're introducing an exclusive cover only available to the Kickstarter community!

 

 

I have a background in programming and design, so when I see a better way, I need to make it happen.

After many years of using both digital and traditional planners, I realized that I'm a paper girl at heart.  But after a while, I got fed up with having to repeatedly write my recurring events.  I knew there had to be a creative way to always view events that happen over and over – but only write them one time.  In this way I could see my daily tasks right alongside my monthly and weekly set schedule and stay on top of my time better.  

After creating a prototype, I had the patent application filed and had launched the product in time for Christmas sales! It's been a while since that first WeekDate calendar and I've made many improvements by listening to people. I work very hard to deliver the best possible (made in the USA) paper planner at the best possible price.

 

 

Yes, I've been doing this a while now. I know there are many paper-loving people out there who would die to know that WeekDate exists and how it would make their lives easier.  I constantly get passionate emails from my current customers telling me how WeekDate organizes their lives.  It is for these customers and future customers that I want to – that I need to – spread the WeekDate word. 

This is where Kickstarter comes in.  The Kickstarter funding will be used to take WeekDate to a new level via marketing, advertising and WeekDate promotion.

So help me get to the marketing meetings, the advertising agency, and the website promotions.  Come with me on this journey to tell the world about my unique calendar system - A Calendar Like No Other.  Every backer will be there in spirit.  I thank you from the bottom of my WeekDate heart.

I never forget that when one of my WeekDate planners is tucked away in the purse or briefcase of a customer, a little piece of me goes along for the ride.
