A Whole Spectrum Schedule

Add a pop of color to your schedule with this unique way to keep track of your days. The individual months in this calendar each consist of two, co-working sheets. Each month starts with an elegant black and white sheet and as you poke out the dots to mark the passing days your weeks will be filled with color. The further you are into the month the more colorful your calendar becomes! Weekdays, calendar weeks and small overview calendars (respectively for the current, previous and following month) provide easy-to-read orientation. This calendar even hits the spot when it comes to keeping track of dates, parties and appointments. And a special punching process enables the dots to be turned over so you can jot reminders on the white reverse sides. Printed in Germany.

Here at UncommonGoods, we believe in making each day as colorful as possible, so we were excited when Josh found this vibrant calendar! Are you counting the days until it enters our assortment?

Cute and fun idea!

There's not nearly enough space on each day to write down reminders and such, and there's no notation for holidays.

I don't want to "manage" a calendar on the wall. have all I can do with Outlook.

It is cute and seems priced in line with most calendars. I would use it for a young child to help learn daily and weekly, monthly patterns. Kids like to imitate their parents and this is simple enough to allow that.

Germany's good; but doesn't seem practical.

Might have voted for it if it were made in the USA. We need to support manufacturing in our own country.

Not useful at all for a busy family. Every day would be "popped" in this house and I'd have no clue what day it was! Additionally, there doesn't seem to be enough room to write info.

I like the color idea, but I just think this is impractical.

Liane

Not practical.

Don't understand the point. Maybe for a kid to keep track of days...

Most people use calendars on their smart phones or computers.

price is a little high, but it just seems like there will be a lot of dots laying around or forgotten to be punched out. Not much space to jot down events. Kind of hard to read.

Quality is probably high because it's from Germany. However, it could still have been printed in China. I have been using the same idea for several years and it works if you stick to ideas that are important to the whole household. For example, out of town, group event, family event, Rocky Horror Picture Show, birthdays and family events. I think I might buy it.

Clever, but seems impractical. I don't need yet another thing in my life to manage!

Not very functional. Not enough room to write more than one thing per day.

Nice idea, too expensive for a wall calendar.

Funky and cool, but not functional enough.

Seems like work and I want to see ahead if it's someone's birthday or I have a doc appt.

kindof cute

Lauren

Looks cute but doesn't seem functional at all.

Marcy
Vote: Thumbs down!

Could be good for a kid, but I don't see the dots popping out cleanly without tearing the dot or frame. Who wants to look at ratty, torn paper for the rest of the month?

Barbara

I think this would be great for kids. A fun way to know and learn calendars.

CMT

It's as if this product was made with me in mind - I have to have a calendar in every room and I love color used in a spectrum-like fashion. The fact that they thought to include a way for using the calendar as calendars ought to be - noting dates for things. Perfect. I so want!

Patricia
Vote: Thumbs up!

Cute, but a litle pricey!

Yanina

Way too complicated for a calendar!

Lauren
Vote: Thumbs down!

those numbers would be everywhere in a house with kids, and it would be super annoying if you missed a day.

Sharon
Vote: Thumbs up!

I really like this idea! This one item takes the place of three. Color-coding is always a hit with me.

alena

looks like more of a kids calendar, kind of impractical for adults.

Cool idea!

kest

I have a wall calendar to keep notes- every day would be popped, and that seems like rather more work than I want to put into a calendar

gypsy
Vote: Thumbs down!

Seems you can not make notes in advance, until you pop that date

Clara
Vote: Thumbs down!

Not very functional for anything except for the date. Seems outdated.

Kate
Vote: Thumbs down!

Fun idea for a kid, but for $17? No way. Could make my own for less. Arts

a little pricey...

Pricy and not that great.

Thanks for the comments and question, David! Sorry it took us a few days to get back to you, we just wanted to double-check on the printing. These colorful calendars are both printed and assembled in Germany.

In this day and age who uses calendars?

This is a fun creative idea. However, this may be a hard sell with all the technology out there. Not sure about the fashion/colour angle. I wouldn't enjoy seeing this hanging on any wall in my house. I don't think there is much of a need or desire for wall calendars these days. Nice try though :)

To Much of a hassle and the dots will be everywhere!

good to keep track of time

Different, but not practical.

Stephanie

I know I wouldn't take the time to pop the dot each day!

Michele

a 6 day week? to odd to be functional. If you have a really busy schedule and pop out several days in a row you now have a to figure out what day you are on. Cute but not very functional.

Nancy

would never use it

Clever idea but who uses paper calendars?
